Publication Date: December 11, 2012 | Series: A Lux Novel
No one is like Daemon Black. When he set out to prove his feelings for Katy, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something she’ll do again and now that they’ve made it through the rough patches, well, there’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on. But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they loved. With help coming from the most unlikely source and Adam’s death still lingering with those who loved him, friends will become the deadliest of enemies and the villains will no longer be clear. When each step they take in discovering the truth puts them in the path of the secret organization responsible torturing and testing hybrids, the more Katy realizes there is no end to what she’s capable of. They won’t turn back, even if the outcome will shatter their worlds forever.

Review:   4.5 stars
Could life get any better? Honestly though… It is an actual question to readers of this wonderful and fantasmic book by none other than the wonderful Mrs Armentrout! If I was to have a magical power it would be to bring Daemon out of this book and make him my boyfriend. He isn’t just swoon worthy…no. He is like roll around in a dying love connection and add a yielding scoop of passion and desire worthy….I actually think I’m in LOvE.

Hat of again to the amazing Jennifer, for her charismatic writing. There are definitely some witty lines between Katy and Daemon. But to be honest with you, I did find that this book lacked plot, although deep down I adored and devoured the relationship development and character growth between all characters…it did take like half of the book for anything remotely dangerous and life threatening to happen. (which lets be honest with each other right now, we all do love a good fight scene) Plus, and I’m sorry to admit this, but the ending was predictable. However, it will be interesting as well as frustrating (due to a certain separation *wink, wink*) to see how things pan out.

The Daedalus and Blake are like seriously creepy…and yet I wish to know more about them. Maybe it was the crazy dream I had last night about a serial killer who was in love, but the dark and twisted always plagues my interests. I honestly just love it when characters are realistic.  Take Dawson and Dee for instance. Traumatic events have dampened their spirits and instead of just getting over it in a measly two chapters and everything becomes honkey dory, they actually work through their problems like normal people even despite the minor troubles along the road.

Sadly I did find that Katy lost some of her original appeal. Although still hilarious she seemed to slowly slip into the ‘now I love a boy so I have no personality’ category. Maybe it was the lack of fights or (sexual tension as I like to call it) between her and Daemon, but she did lose a bit of her original sassiness. Despite this I did find that Daemon just understood her, but more importantly understood the necessity to have something for yourself and to know when today had enough alien dramas so you needed to have a nap or read a good book….I LOvE him! He wasn’t as pushy as some male leads..(cough cough…Edward Cullen) but at the same time was protective enough to be sexy as hell. Who doesn’t love a man who wants to take care of you, but also accepts your kind and at sometimes odd nature.

Please Jennifer can I have some more!? Because i’m not sure if I can wait…especially with the world ending on the 21st! Xoxo
