Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.
She can’t believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.
Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.
They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.
War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing..
“You’d get jealous if she hugged a tree,” Archer tossed out.
Another series finished this year!! Reading is becoming so exciting to me again after such a long reading slump (literally longer than a year).
I really enjoyed this series, I definitely didn’t love it, but it was a really fun ride.
“We could really use the Avengers right about now.”
“Screw that. We need Loki,” Daemon retorted.
The best part about this entire series to me was Armentrout’s humour, her writing is seamlessly funny, and worked so well with the story.
There were so many moments where I really loved the characters and felt for them, but I never really completely connected with them as I have in other series’.
This particular instalment, the finale(!) was underwhelming to me, but I didn’t expect much if I’m being honest. I think because I loved its predecessor, Origin, so much that this one just couldn’t compete.
“What the hell, man?” Dawson exploded, hands flying up. “I was on level sixty-nine of Candy Crush, you bastard. Do you know how hard that—?”
