Summary: Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.
Something worse than the Arum has come to town…
The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there’s this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that’s possible. Against all common sense, I’m falling for Daemon. Hard.
But then everything changes…
I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?
No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…
TOTALLY LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Seriously! Book 1, Obsidian, I just gave it a 3.5 — I wasn’t that ecstatic about that book and pretty much a disappointment for me. But came this book, and HOLY MEATBALLS — I literally (non stopped) read it from 12AM until 10 am — in one sitting!!! OMFREAKSHOWWWW! I gave this book a 5 out of 5.
The start (romance aspect) was pretty much slow for Katy and Daemon but at least in this book, only one of them is adamant with starting a relationship or admitting his/her true feelings to the other person (unlike in book 1 wherein they were both so). BUT THE ENDING TOTALLY SEALED IT.
We would finally learn what Katy had become and that is if you read book 1, you’ll definitely get what I am talking about. Pretty much, all the details of that were clearly explained in this book.
Dr. Will and Blake — like what I thought so, are the only things I could say actually.
Katy — SO STUBBORN! Well, you’ve got to learn it the hard way huh?
Daemon — You’ve totally surpassed all my expectations of you in this book. He’s matured so much from the Daemon in book 1.
A lot of BIG REVELATIONS AND SURPRISES await you in this book, seriously. Unfortunately, several deaths too and death defying moments. Betrayals, secrets, and lies unfolded right at your very eyes. THE ENDING, I loved it sooooo much that I’m dying to end this blog and start with book 3! And yes, I haven’t had slept since 12 midnight. 🙂
