Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.
After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.
All Katy can do is survive.
Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?
Together, they can face anything.
But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on?
And will they even be together?
I was so excited to start this book after reading the amazing end of Opal (Lux #3) Read my review here.
I can say though, that it took me a while to get into the story which is unusual in Jennifer's books. I must admit that I felt like Daemon wasn't himself at the beginning but that was solved once he started being the Daemon I love. (witty, smug and above all: sexy!)
"Are you scared?Daemon chuckled softly.
"Me, seriously? No."
"You are too awesome for that?" He kissed the sensitive spot under my ear, sending a wake of shivers through me.
"you are learning. I'm proud of you."I laughed.
Regarding other characters:
- Kathy can really kick som a**. She is fearsome.
- I like Archer's seriousness and protectiveness towards Kathy.
- Blake's role bored me, it was more of the same.
It had funny parts, I swear I was ROFL with the "interrupting cow". It flows easily and after that tiny inconvenient at the beginning with an unrecognizable Daemon, it was superb.
The scene where they get together is so tender. *_______*
I'm just fascinated by their chemistry. It grows look after look, kiss after kiss.
I reached out and placed my uninjured hand on his shoulder. His light pulsed and the red at the edges bled inward an inch or so. Interesting.
"You know how much I like it when you touch me in this form". His voice sent a shiver down my spine.
"Why do you have to make everything sound so dirty?" But I didn't pull my hand back.
His chuckle rolled through me and by then, the pain in my palm had stopped. "I'm not the one with the dirty mind, Kitten."
This book has a lot of action. I think it was a great twist what happened with the LH - 11.
As a fan of "Sweet Evil" by Wendy Higgins, I liked the "Anna Whitt/ Kaidan Rowe" part so much.
The good thing about this author is that when everything looks ok and you think there is no more action to come, BOOM! you get an unpredictable turn of events. And then again, you think "that's all" and suddenly 5 pages before the end J.L. Armentrout drops a moon-size bomb!
OMG! Holy cr*p!
I need Opposition (Lux #5) NOW!
