I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.
And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.
But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.
Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen... (Goodreads)
I haven't made it a secret that I love the Lux series by Armentrout. They are such fun, fast reads, and there's nothing better than one of the novels to curl up with and completely forget the world. So reading a good deal of the series from Deamon's point of view? Yeah, I pre-ordered this one and was elated to get it on my kindle. The book didn't disappoint. It was a blast to see things through Deamon's perspective, and made quite a few of the situations from the other books make more sense. Also, it's been a good while since I devoured the regular series, so I didn't have all the details from them fresh in my mind, making it less redundant than it would have been otherwise. At any rate, it was a fun read and I enjoyed it. I do feel like I would have liked a little more depth to the nature of the characters--I mean, they're not from here, so how does that influence them? What other factors play on their emotions? At times this comes through, but I felt like there could have been a great deal more of this. Otherwise they don't seem too much different than human teens who happen to have different abilities. Or maybe I'm just thinking of Roswell (the TV show) a bit too much, where I felt like they delved into these sticky issues with more depth. Anyhow, overall, I had fun reading this one :)
