(Lux #3)

No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well… There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different… And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger… and they know it.

…Ah, sh*t. Lotsa romance, little action. Not that I’m complaining, but… oh, well.

Daemon, from this moment on, you can never do wrong to me. You are my hot alien. Lemme be your Kitten!

*ahem*

Okay, then. I wouldn’t have mind the Katy-Daemon lovefest, but it was very clear that Opal was all about the lovey-dovey. And the progress of the story went right out the window. Whoosh!

While I did enjoy seeing more of Daemon, I was skittish on why there hasn’t been anygood action at all. Or is it just me? I love this series, and it brought a frown on my face when Opal failed to deliver the right amount of maturity to the plot.

I guess the imbalance between the romance and sci-fi theme imbalanced me. Knowing full well that Katy’s and Daemon’s story is just getting good, I had a feeling that this third book was going to be explosive! Well, a slight bomb if you may, on the last few pages. My heart went to Daemon, but it’s partly his fault things went awry. Him and his friends should’ve had a back up plan. Plan A-Z! Well, hello. Blake‘s there, wasn’t he? So surely, things were bound to get dirty.

Origin seems to far away. But I can sit still waiting for it. Daemon, you better be packing up some heat because I’m expecting you to blast one particular hybrid to pieces.
