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?

My Review:

Wow this one was definitely a whirlwind of action and emtion. I loved getting Daemon’s perspective, however the audiobook narrator was a little…slow at times. It was a little aggravating at first, but I slowly got used to it by the end.

There was so much happening in this book, both with the action and intrigue, and the character and relationship growths, that it kept me engrossed the entire time I was listening. The ending had me making far too many comparisons to Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead, though, because wow were there a lot of similarities in terms of plot (although I just looked at it turns out this was published first so….:/). Really all it did was make me want to reread the Bloodlines series but otherwise it had me giddy and gasping and constantly on the edge of my seat.

Off to start the final one, now! And this time I was smart and downloaded it from Hoopla before my library’s daily limit was reached.
