Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…
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…
**DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU HAVE READ OBSIDIAN, BOOK ONE!**
Oh my gosh! This book was better than the first! I just love all Katy and Daemon scenes!
Theme: Deception, Love, Family,
After the major battle with the Arum−Baruck− and after Katy almost loses her life, Katy begins to have these weird sickly symptoms while finding herself connected to Daemon. She begins moving things around uncontrobally and finding herself roaming the streets.
When the Department of Defense come to town, they seem to be more trouble for Daemon and Katy than the Arum. They are concerned about the recent activity that was picked up on their satellites after the light show with Baruck.
After treating Katy badly when they first met, Daemon is finding himself having to prove to Katy they he likes her. He does everything he can to prove to her that his feelings for her are real. But Daemon isn’t the only one trying to get Katy’s attention. There is a new boy in town and he has his eyes set on Katy. He knows what she is and he claims he can help her.
And on top of that, Katy sees someone whose suppose to be dead. And it causes even more commotion and confusion.
Trust is tested. Love is elevated. No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…
Daemon→ Daemon sure doesn’t miss a beat. He always has a joke for any situation. And oh my gosh, he nevered called Blake by his name! It was hilarious. I know Katy was tired of correcting him because I know I was tired of it. It was getting annoying…Speaking of Katy Swartz…
Katy→ That girl was so annoying in this book. She was really frustrating me mann…especially when she was constantly telling Daemon that he didn’t like her, despite what he said and how he expressed himself. Like come on, seriously? The hot alien likes you Katy! Accept it! Geez…
Again, Jennifer L. Armentrout doesn’t disappoint. I love all the details she gives for every scene. I could picture everyone and everything perfectly. Marvelous writing!
Lesson Learned? Trust and deception go hand in hand.
