Goodreads Synopsis:

No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger... and they know it.

My Review:

            This lady (Armentrout) keeps on delivering fantastic books one right after the other. I don't know how this woman does it, but she does it well. I am a HUGGEEE fan of Armentrout. From her first book in the Covenant Series, to Obsidian, I can't help but squeal with delight every time I read her books. She has a way of capturing the most minute details and presenting them in a well written manner. So far I have loved ALL of her books and I can't wait to see what else she has in store for us!   

            The first two books in this series introduced the characters, setting, and the plot very nicely. The flow was smooth and the characterization felt realistic. We got to know the characters on a personal level, what they were thinking and how they reacted in situations. We also got more of a background on the Arum and the story behind Daemon and his family. Opal, goes further into the mystery behind Daemon, his kind, what the secret government (Daedalus) wants with hybrids, and why are they after Katy and Daemon. Katy and Daemon are finally together...but life isn't done throwing curve balls at them just yet. A close friend of Katy's has died, Blake has returned seeking forgiveness and retribution for his actions, they find out more about a new gemstone and it's powers, and Daemon's twin brother and his girlfriend might still be alive! So a lot has happened since the last two books.

            Katy has become stronger, more mature, and is able to kick-ass. Her and Dee's relationship has also gotten stronger as well as the relationship with Daemon. Speaking of Daemon...he is still his cocky self. Sure he has shown his sweeter/kind side, but he has also become a little possessive and over protective. I understand that he doesn't want Katy to get hurt, but she can handle herself. He doesn't always have to worry about her, but he does anyways.  

      Overall, just an awesome book! There wasn't any action until the climax, but I'm not complaining. I was totally fine with the cute Daemon and Katy scenes in the beginning of the book. If you haven't read any JLA books then you are crazy! Just drop everything and read them all now!
