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?
Armentrout...I seriously don't know what I'm going to do with you and your freaking HORRIBLE, CLIFF HANGER ENDINGS!!! But before we even get to all of that, the author has made yet another book within this Lux series. I fall more and more in love with this series with each book that I read. This had all the components :) It was fast paced and action packed. It had some great romance as well as suspense! Of course, I could not put the book down and I was so excited to be back in this world! A must read if you have read the series! Things are getting so good and can't wait for the next book!

Character wise, everyone was ay okay with me. I didn't have any extreme annoyances, which is always a plus, but there were some surprises that can't be mentioned without giving things away. Katy, left me pissed in the last book, but I was so glad to see her again in this book. And plus we go double pov's from Katy and Daemon! I LOVE DAEMON :) Had to get that out there! Daemon was everything he has always been in this book and that definitely didn't disappoint me. I love seeing his romantic side come out more and more with these books. The bond and relationship that Katy and Daemon have is awesome. And we finally find out what that freaky Luc kid is! I swear, I thought he was a creeper. And I'm glad to Dee back to her old self. I really missed that characteristic of hers in the last book because she's such a fun character to be around. As far as some of the other characters go, I really happy for Dawson and Beth (big thing there I was not expecting!) and I was glad to meet Archer. He was a really nice one. And hello Hunter from Obsession :) I so wish he made more of an appearance!

I loved the action in this book! I felt as though it really made the book that much better. The pacing was great to, but sometimes it did slow down a bit for me in certain spots. It wasn't extreme, but it slow down in some sections. But I loved reading from both Katy and Daemon's pov. Sorry, but middle fingers up to Blake! I felt absolutely no sympathy :D I almost did a slow hand clap. Is that evil of me?! But yeah, another great installment in the series and I'm DYING to know what happens next! That ending was like WTF....AGAIN!
