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?

HOLY. ALIEN. BABIES. Errm... Sorry, it's just that the cover is just so beautiful. Burning the world concept in the background, model Daemon pissed off but still gorgeous and those abs. DAYUM!

Anyway, I really wondered how this book could be as exciting as the third book Opal. But boy, I wasn't disappointed. Kathy being captured by the Daedalus isn't as boring as I thought it would be. The truth and lies behind everything got me wondering all over again. 

Daemon and Kathy's reunion got me all teary eyed. Yeah, I honestly never expect to be touched by it, but I guess it got something to do with Daemon's POV. How he saw Kathy as the only girl he loves, how he is deeply in love with her, and how much pain he is emotionally. 

"My heart stopped. My entire world came to a halt. I walked forward, and my step faltered. Only at the last possible second, I caught myself from hitting the floor on my knees. The back of my throat and eyes burned." -Daemon
Kathy is my ideal heroine. She is not weak, as I say in my previous reviews, not a damsel in distress (even though Daemon wants her to be one). She makes mistakes, sometime can be annoyingly stubborn, she is not perfect. She is selfless, she thinks and stand for what she believes in. I admire her for handling everything on her own.
"She attacked several members of my team."
A smile spread across my face. That's my girl. "So sorry to hear that." - Daemon to Nancy
And there was Archer, I was really mystified by him, being the silent type, by-stander but someone who cares character that he is. He is certainly someone to watch out for in the next installment.

"Well, aren't you just a special snowflake," Daemon murmured.
"That I am." Archer's lips quirked into a half grin.
I just wanted to say something to Blake...  You got that coming dude... You certainly got that coming!

This book certainly got a pretty good hold on me. The story line is good as it progress to it's end. And speaking of "end", geez... the ending of this book... . There goes Jennifer Armentrout's soul sucking ending. There's still so much to look forward to and more than enough reason to anticipate the final book.

Rating:5 stars and counting...

Recommended: Yes.
Book Boyfriend: Completely awed.
