Summary: Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don’t kill him first, that is.
I gave thus book a 3.5. Hmmm, I have a love and hate relationship with this book. For starters, it reminded me so much of Twilight — but with a twist. Nope — no vampires but aliens! And the characters!!! So twilightish so definitely if you loved Twilight then you’ll certainly get obsessed with this series.
I hate that there is little romantic connection between Kat and Daemon; their relationship baffled me soooo much up until the end. I kept on guessing how that spark would get ignited but then at the end of the day — I’m back to being confused again.
I love that Kat is feisty — but SHE’S TOO FEISTY for me; there should be a middle ground because seriously it gets boring eventually like all she did was be — well have this attitude towards Daemon and it’s kind of a turnoff for me — but not that I could blame her but still girl… give it a little spice! *wink wink*
Daemon… hmmm.. I don’t know what he wants in life actually. Get your thoughts together and be a man dude! MAKE UP YOUR MIND because seriously, you’re exhausting my brain to its bits! He’s really hard to follow and hard to tell — which really became annoying instead of seeing the good side of his actions (if you know what I mean).
All in all, I loved the uniqueness of that world Jennifer has created through this book but not the romance aspect of it. I am really into it! I really am! Hopefully, things get better between Kat and Daemon though in the coming books because seriously — how Kat and Daemon with each other ruins this book big time for me.
