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.

God, I love this series. I’m five books in, and each book is more of the same in the best possible way, and yet unique. This one was geared heavily towards an apocalyptic scenario, which is quite different from the rest of the series, but it was a long time coming to get here.
The characters and world-building have held up amazingly well throughout the series. They have depth, definitive personalities, and you can’t help but feel for them. I also like that the author doesn’t have any qualms about killing off well-loved characters when the plot calls for it – as much as it devastated my soul at the time. The romances and friendships, even the conflicts between the characters felt real and natural. It is all incredibly well-written and executed.
I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll say this: I loved this book. I love the series as a whole. I am incredibly sad that I have run through the last of the books. If you like Young Adult Science Fiction or Romance, I highly recommend this series and this book.
