Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems. Something worse than the Arum has come to town…The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there’s this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that’s possible. Against all common sense, I’m falling for Daemon. Hard. But then everything changes…I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them–from me? No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

As much as I love the first book, the second one was so much better. So basically it was amazing and I don’t even understand how it can get better but it does.

The first book was very much about world building and introductions to the characters. The characters that are potentially some of my favourites ever. Jennifer, keep doing whatever it is your doing. So, i loved the protagonist of Katy originally, but she has come so far in development and I can see her slowly morphing into some Katniss badass character.

Then we have the relationship between Katy and Daemon. Kaemon. Daty. I don’t even know, but I ship it like it is nobody’s business. Love it! So, after book one there was so much unaddressed and ignored sexual tension, it was actually painful and I had to read the second book. I actually read this ages ago and am just reviewing now… Anyway, this was very much addressed in this book and that is all I shall say. NO SPOILERS!

5/5 stars for this book. I know I give that rating a lot, but you know… I like books.

I am really sorry about not posting for a week. I have recently gone back to school and that plus not being in the mood to post meant I just didn’t. I would rather not post than post half-heartedly.
