Blurb from Goodreads:

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?

I pre-ordered this book as I knew I wanted it as soon as it came out but for some reason it took ages to get dispatched and when it arrived I had other books on the go so surprisingly I didn't jump straight into it. I know it took me ages to read this book but that has nothing to do with not liking the book it was just at the time I was busy with work but I'm also kind of glad I took a while as I got to stay with Daemon for a lot longer than what I normally would!

When I first came across the cover to this book I was not impressed as I preferred the others in the series but when I received my own copy I fell in love with it. I didn't like that it was different to the others as they all have Katy and Daemon together but this time it was just Daemon (not that I'm complaining about that) but this book is slightly different to the other books so now I like that the cover is a little different, plus I love that it's from a scene from the book.

As soon as I started this book I fell in love with it just like the previous books. I loved that there didn't seem to be a huge time period missing between this and Opal as when books have done that in the past it has made for a confusing read but not this book it was so easy to get into with no confusion. I think I would go as far as saying that this book is my favourite from the Lux series so far as there was so much more going on although there was a couple of things that was a bit predictable but in this case I don't care because I loved it also there was other things that happened that I just didn't expect. There was a lot more action in this book than the others which I loved as it gave it the edge that I never thought was missing. My emotions where on such a rollercoaster ride as at times I was laughing and other times I was nearly in tears a very emotional book. The ending was a huge cliff hanger but when it comes to this series I don't expect anything else and it has made me very excited for the last book as I am dying to know what happens next as well as how it is all going to end.

We saw a very different side to Katy in this book but I feel like it's going to make her a much more stronger character even if at times it doesn't like it. Daemon, what can I say I loved him even more as he was just his protective, funny and sexy self. He gave the story a bit of humour when I didn't think I could take any more sadness. We where also introduced to a new character called Archer  but I'm not going to say anything else as I don't want to give anything away. We got to know more about Luc which was nice to see. Also there was a lot of shocks with other characters.

Overall I loved every minute of this book and by far my favourite in the series so far.
