I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.
And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.
But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.
Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...
There are technically two versions of this book. There is the paperback copy, which only features Obsidian from Daemon's POV, and there is the eBook version, which has Obsidian, Onyx, and Opal from Daemon's POV. So just keep that in mind when buying this book.
Now, you might think that this is just going to be the same as reading the books in Katy's POV, well, you're most definitely wrong. It's actually the complete opposite. Personally, I enjoyed being in Daemon's mind. When you read from Katy's POV, you see Daemon basically being a complete and total douche. But when you're reading from Daemon's, you see that he was only acting that way to protect both Dee and Katy. He is determined to fight his feelings for Katy in order to keep her safe.
It was interesting seeing Daemon's fascination of Kat. When he first sees her he learns she is anything but average.
It is clear how much responsibility falls on Daemon's shoulders, having to keep Dee, then Katy safe. What also comes though is how inevitable Daemon's feelings for Katy are. There is absolutely no doubt of Daemon's feelings when reading from his POV.
Now onto Onyx and Opal, even in Daemon's POV, it was quite frustrating when Katy didn't trust Daemon and decided to train with Blake anyway (and we all know how that ends up...)
The one thing I really loved about this book was how Daemon was slowly falling in love with Katy even though he didn't realize it right away himself.
I am a huge fan of Jennifer L Armentrout, so naturally, I loved this book. If you love the Lux series, you will definitely enjoy this.
