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.
The Review: “Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys.”Katy
Ha! I can't believe it took me so long to read this. I picked it up after I finished Jennifer's Covenant series, so I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. And I wasn't disappointed one bit!
I loved it, I loved every second of it. And I'm glad I got bullied into reading it. damn the peer pressure! Anyway, this was thrilling. The whole concept and story was wonderful with so many twists and turns that keep you wanting more. Keep you turning pages to see what happens next. Katy was completely likeable she was strong and independent and didn't take any crap from Daemon even when he was being a complete arse! And best of all...she's a book blogger! Ha I loved that little touch, and all the small book references Jennifer made to some YA books (one which I'm currently reading now!).  I loved that there was no insta-love here-just lust apparently. It was very much a love/hate relationship to start with and Daemon is so infuriating that I found myself wanting to kick him in his precious goonies. 
I was completely sucked in from the moment I started reading this. Could not put it down! Every time something new and exciting happened it made me want to learn more about the Luxen's and their enemies. 
I'm really not sure what else to say. After I finished this I was sad it was over, but lucky for me, we were on the Onyx Blog Tour so I was able to read book 2 straight away! If you haven't read anything by Jennifer yet,  then I suggest you do so quickly. You won't be disappointed. She has a knack for story telling, and her entire personality shines on through her characters and her dialogue. It was all completely wonderful and I look forward to reading more from her very soon!
