TORN Blog Tour w a Giveaway!!

TORN (A Fire Born Novel, #2)

TORN, the second installment of the Fire Born Novels by Laney McMann, has launched.

PLUS, there’s a Giveaway!

TORN (Book #2)Find Max.

That’s all Layla cares about. Not healing from the Fomore attack. Not finding answers to how she survived a fall that nearly killed her. Nothing will stop her. She will find him. She’ll even pair up with an overbearing Fallen Angel who’s hell bent on making everything harder than it needs to be if she has to.

Protect Layla.

For Max, nothing else matters. Not the bruises covering his body. Not the pain radiating from his broken bones. Not even his hands tied behind his back. He will find a way to save Layla, and the Fomore will pay if they’ve hurt her.

Every. Single. One of them.

In the second installment of The Fire Born trilogy, a new breed of villain looms—one Layla and Max will never suspect, and this killer has nothing to lose. Better yet, with Max and Layla’s deaths, victory is in the grip of the enemy.

Will Max and Layla find each other in time, or is it already too late for them both?

My Review
Holy crap! This one picked up right where Tied left off and then ended on my jaw dropping moment of me dying for book 3!! WOW!! I mean, this one is darker, and better, and so much more. We finally get some answers about all those prophecies, and we find out who Max really is, and what is Layla’s place in all that is. It’s gunna be a shocker for you. Serious, this series is excellent. There’s a dead line, there’s war coming, and there’s a whole lot of death going to be had. Hold on to whatever you can. 
Layla is in trouble, I swear she keeps almost going, and when she wakes, she knows she’s gotta find Max. And wait til she does, it’ll be a big ordeal. And then there’s crazy and her mom and grandma and aunt all throwing things at her, but most aren’t helpful, and then she makes a deal but she doesn’t understand the consequences and then it’s gunna be a crazy ride. 
Max on the other hand, I wanna slap him a little. Yes I know he wants to do the right thing, but dammit, screw the right thing, because everyone lies, especially to him, and take your girl and fight! Oh man, I cannot wait to see where this is gunna go, but I can’t tell you anything without spoiling a whole mess of stuff. 
The characters are evolving, so are their powers, and their knowledge. That knowledge blows the roof off. Literally 🙂 And the writing is epically awesome. I couldn’t put this one down and I didn’t want to. It’s amazing. I want more. So Much more. The romance picks up, and action is more ass kicking, the bad guys are out of hiding and throwing in the big guns, and now, everyone’s life is in danger, and the world stands in balance of tipping over. Trust me, this one is MAGNIFICENT!! 5 PAWS!!! I need more, GIMME!! 🙂

Character Interview

WELCOME Layla!! What’s your favorite part about being “different”?

L: I’m not so sure I like being different at all right now.

 How do you feel about Max being so special?

L: Max is amazing, everything thing about him, but I’ve thought that since we were kids. The special part is just who he is.

And the part about you two being enemies?

L: That was a shock for both us. We’re trying to deal with it the best we can.

How about those lovely gargoyle friends, well, protectors, tell me something fun about them, or maybe something you just wanna say about them?

L: Justice is awesome, but don’t tell him I said that. He’s also a total jerk half the time. I haven’t spent a lot of time with Tristan, but Max loves them both like brothers.

What about your coolest power, can you tell me something about which of your powers you like the most?

L: My powers are still a bit out of my control, so I’m not liking any of them yet.

Do you think there’s one of those lovely gargoyle brothers that maybe would wanna hang out with me, I can be quite fun LOL

L: Tristan’s not doing much these days, maybe you could hang with him and Grandma Mac. 😉

A little of this and that…

                Coffee or tea? 

LM: Tea. Always tea.

Mountains or beach?

LM: I’m a beach girl.

Winter or summer?

LM: Summer. Summer. Summer.

Vampire or werewolf?

LM: Depends on their character.

Cold or hot? 

LM: Hot.

Favorite color?

LM: All shades of blue.

Night or day?

LM: Depends on what I’m not doing.

Moonlight or sunlight?

LM: Both

Steak, seafood, burger, or pizza?

LM: Seafood. 

Thanks so much for hanging out with us, Layla! I’m a huge fan and I can’t believe this awesome adventure is happening!!

TIED, Book #1


Normal people don’t believe their nightmares stalk them. They don’t fall in love with boys who don’t exist, either.

Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares.

Or is that all in her head?

Layla doesn’t know what to believe any more because if none of that’s true, Max MacLarnon must be an illusion, and her heart must still be broken.

No matter how much she wants to believe Max is real, doing so would mean everything else is, too. How, then, is that possible?

The answers lie in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal, and with a curse that could tear Layla and Max apart forever—if it doesn’t kill them both first.

In TIED, book one in the Fire Born trilogy, learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal of demons, and being with Max will put Layla on a path toward her own destruction.

Just how far will Layla go to protect the one she loves?

The answer may never be far enough … away.


With a passion for the supernatural and all things magical, Laney developed a voracious appetite for reading fantasy at a young age. A vivid imagination helped set the stage for creating her own worlds and placed her onto the writing path.

By the time she reached her teens, she’d accumulated notebooks full of poems, which led to short stories and finally novels. Young adult dark fantasy, paranormal romance, and mythology are among her favorite genres.

A former classical dancer and chef, she grew up in sultry Florida where she still resides with her family.
