Starting over sucks.----------
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don't kill him first, that is.
I stared at the pile of books in my new bedroom, wishing the Internet had been hooked up.
4 stars out of 5
There is so much to say about this book. I loved Katy's fierceness and innocence. I also loved Daemon, with his hard exterior that nobody can crack. Katy pretty much sums it up: "Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys." But as much as I loved infuriating Daemon, I loved sweet, caring, broken Daemon better. Those moments when he would drop his walls and let Katy in were the best in the book.
The character development was amazing. I do hope we get to see more of Katy's mom in the second book, Onyx (August 14, 2012).
