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.. @goodreads
Back in the day, I had this plan for the off chance that I was around for the whole end-of-the-world thing. It involved climbing up on my roof and blasting R.E.M.'s "It's the End of the World as We Know it (And I Feel Fine)" as loud as humanly possible, but real life rarely turns out that cool.
It was happening-everything about the world as we knew it was ending, and it sure as hell did not feel fine. Or Cool.
The Luxen invasion happened. =(
and things changed for everyone.
People were being killed left and right. Daemon, Dawson and Dee were taken away to go with the leader. Katy, Archer and Beth were left to try to stay alive.
But Daemon made his way back. They all eventually did. Took Dee awhile as she was brainwashed the most.
And there were still some funny tidbits in the book. I love when a book can throw in some funny moments.
Archer sighed like a petulant teenager stuck in a car for too long. There was a beat of silence. "Are we there yet?"
Daemon groaned. "I'm going to sew your damn lips together."
Well, shit balls for dinner on Sunday.
I'm going to have to remember and use that last one =)
And lo and behold, they team up with some of the enemy alien friends, the Arum. I love Hunter, he was my favorite Arum. Their leader was a crackpot =D
We have some show downs with the alien races and the human mutants. Some people get killed that made me sad.
But the ending made me so happy. Everyone together that mattered for the most part. And a new edition, Ashley. That's all I'm saying party people.
