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?
So I was thinking, there’re eighty-six thousand, four hundred seconds in a day, right? There’re one thousand, four hundred and forty minutes in a day…There’re one hundred and sixty-eight hours in a week. Around eighty-seven hundred and then some hours in a year, and you know what?…I want to spend every second, every minute, every hour with you…I want a year’s worth of seconds and minutes with you. I want a decade’s worth of hours, so many that I can’t add them up. – Daemon
The Lux Series has proven to be one of those books that you just can’t not read. Some may have compared the story to Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, but the story was well-written, and the female characters were kick-ass, plus the aliens had an excuse to glow because they were made of light.
After the wtf-ending of Opal, I had to get my hands on this 4th installment. This was told in dual POVs, Daemon’s and Katy’s, so it was refreshing to read Daemon’s thoughts. Knowing that the Big-Bad-Daemon have fears and insecurities was refreshing to me. However, it took a while before the story went explosive. Since Katy was captured by Daedelus because of the trap set up by Blake, half of the book was about that. When all the action began, it was suspenseful and gripping. [Read more…]
