Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.

After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.

All Katy can do is survive.\

Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?

Together, they can face anything.

But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on?

And will they even be together?


This will be a mini spoiler free review. I listened to the audiobook via Audible.

Okay, here we go. It’s been quite a while since I listened to this book, and I’m honestly not sure I remember much. Not because I didn’t enjoy it – I did! But because work took over my life and I listened to a whole bunch of audiobooks directly after this. I don’t retain books for very long once I finish them, unfortunately.

This is the point of the series were stuff start becoming more SF and more dystopian and I love it. I’m a sucker for those kinds of stories, and this one doesn’t disappoint. The cards are stacked against Daemon and Katy and their lives are on the line. This book starts and doesn’t stop and then there is the ending…phew.

If you’re a fan of aliens, JLA’s or just good series in general, you really need to check these out. You won’t be disappointed. Jen knows how to tell a story and keep you captivated and wanting more. She constantly delivers and her characters are always so good and you feel for them.
