Wow, wow and WOW again! I am definitely out of stars. This was one hell of a great show, and I was flashed by hindsight. If you don´t know the author by now, you should read this series.

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came. She can´t believe Daemon stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred. Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything to ensure the survival of their friends … and mankind.

My Review

Jennifer L. Armentrout has a fantastic way to catch emotions, fantasy and a bit of Sci-fi in one single book.
Holy Moly, I was on the edge during some pages and though I was aware that there had to be a Happy ending, I wasn´t sure how and if it would really happen.

Katy can´t believe that Daemon has left with the Luxen. Since days she hasn´t heard anything from him nor seen him at all. Beth is pregnant and feels worse and needs things. So Katy and Archer decide to go on the dangerous trip to town, not knowing what they will find or how they will survive. Since the Luxen arrived on Earth, everything has changed. And for Katy, it means that she doesn´t know where Daemon is or what her mother is doing. 

A thrilling story is brought to you through the eyes of Katy and Daemon. At first, you still are in shock about the things that had happened at the end of book four. And so are most of the figures. The fifth book continues right after that and shows a life that has changed completely. Nobody is safe anymore. The Luxen seem to want to destroy Earth or at least mankind and to take over. 

In a very sensitive way, the author has written this book. Yes, it is very bloody sometimes and there are a lot of cruel things going on. But it is always with a hint of softness and emotions that go right through your heart. 

After everything that they had to go through, it is amazing to see how Daemon, Dawson, Dee and Katy deal with everything. Okay, I wasn´t too happy when I saw how Dee had changed, but that is part of the plot and the way how Katy deals with her is quite remarkable, though very brutal.
Again the author proofs that there is an inner strength and priorities that some of us keep up to it no matter what. Katy is one of them. She wants freedom and peace, but not at all costs. Her reaction when she has to learn what the military does to fight the Luxen is just wow.

Again, I am almost with no words. This book was, in my eyes, FANTASTIC! You have to read it and in case you don´t know the author yet, this series would be a great start. I highly recommend this.

Happy reading
