Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
Published: August 2014, Entangled Teen
Rating: 4/5 stars ★★★★
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.

“We could really use the Avengers right about now.”
“Screw that. We need Loki,” Daemon retorted.
General Eaton arched a brow. “Well, unfortunately, the Marvel Universe isn’t real, so…”
(So I just thought I’ll throw that quote out there. What? I found it funny!)
It’s difficult to completely love this series as I am not quite partial to the H/h. Daemon was hot, fun, charismatic but it’s true, he could be a jerk too. Katy was a real work of I-dont-even-know. She did a lot of stupid things but she was okay-ish too, most of the time anyway. I just don’t see the need to make Katy a benevolent hybrid saving people at the time when everything was in chaos and she could lead the others to harm. What the duck was she doing? I get that she’s supposed to be big-hearted, kind, humane and all but wasn’t she supposed to be smart too? I would’ve let it slide if she actually succeeded on saving that person but all she did was bid her more time before she dies. Ugh.
