Synopsis

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can’t believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

My Personal Thoughts

Holy holy holy fudge! Reading the fifth and final installment gave me separation anxiety! I want to know what will happen to Daemon and Katy but at the same time, I was not ready to let go of them and the rest of the crew. No! I can’t! I will surely miss the hottest alien ever. The ending is not that bad, I liked the way it ended. Just the way I wanted it to conclude. Things went pretty fine for the couple although I felt sorry for Katy and with everyone that she lost along the way. The crew has been amazing and awesome as always! I just hate the way Dee acted out during the first couple of chapters and her attitude was annoying! Daemon, on the other hand, has always been cheesy and romantic and I almost died, again, because of his swoon-worthy characteristics! Gosh! Katy should have her hair trimmed or tied because it’s so freaking loooonggggg! Like really long! Even though she annoyed me most of the time for being a stubborn brat, I envied the way Daemon unconditionally loves her. It was a really nice ending, not much of an action-packed ending but things went out just right and everyone was happy. Thank you JLA for creating a wonderful alien crew. I love all the characters despite Katy ‘s pain in the ass traits. I am looking forward to reading the novella. I just hope that there was a novella dedicated for their wedding. Nonetheless, everything ended smoothly and just fine. The alternating narration between Katy and Daemon is one of my favorites. The story was fast-paced. I was also able to read it in 2 days. I don’t have any rant about the finale, I was just hoping that it wasn’t that horrible for Katy. I don’t know, maybe it should have ended in a different way, or not? Anyway, I highly recommend this series to people who likes to read young adult science fiction in a contemporary setting where the main character is a hot male alien who loves dearly and sincerely! 💜
