Yeah, I don't like this Chosen.
I didn't like her in Rhage's book 'Lover Eternal' and I still don't like her in 'Lover Mine'.
It's partly the fact that I love Qhuay and resent the fact that Layla is yet another obstacle for Qhuinn and Blay (though oddly enough I do like Saxton).
I just think Layla is such a whiny, Mary-Sue character. She's so full of virginal goodness, but with the body of a siren (so, every guy's wet dream but kind of ostracizing female readers?). And all she does is complain about her lack of lovin'. I don't like her.
I really, really, really hope she isn't the intended Shellan for any of my favorite characters (Tohr, Lassiter, Trez or iAm).
