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.

Initial Thoughts

I’ve pretty much become obsessed with this series and I’m not even sure why. As soon as I finished the second book I went straight out and bought the third. There’s just something really addicting about this series. So naturally I jumped right into this one with my expectations high.

My New Best Friend

I’m sad that Dee and Katy kind of broke up. I love Dee. She’s so happy and excited about everything. She changed a lot in this book though. She turns violent because of someone’s death. She basically loses it and in the process Katy loses  her too. She’s still my favourite though, easily.

My Crush

Of course I’m still in love with Daemon. That’s probably why I’m so addicted to this series. He’s just so attractive to me. And probably to every other girl. I can’t get over how perfect he is. Except he isn’t at the same time. That’s what I really like about him. He’s not the perfect hero. He has his flaws, like how much of a jerk he is. But in the end he’s incredible and every girl wants a guy like him.

Writing Style

I was happier with this book more than the others. It has less of a similarity to Twilight for me and that made it easier to read. The super cliché lines were still there but I found that I wasn’t bothered by them this time. The writing is definitely improving.

Closing Thoughts

This is my favourite of the series so far. I liked the plot much better and I loved the new character, Dawson. I love how him and Katy slowly became friends and she helped him out of his little depression moments. I also liked that Katy stood up for herself a lot more in this book. She was still kind of stupid some times but I got over it. I am getting a little annoyed with her lame names she calls people. Jerk face? Come on, you can do better. I still hated Blake when he came back, though who doesn’t. He did make the story more interesting and I loved how Daemon, quite literally, wanted to kill him. Lots of fun! There was a lot of romance in this book too, just about the same amount as book two. Ash was still a jerk and Dee and Andrew came around eventually. I wish we could see some more of Matthew though because he seems like and interesting character. I’m warning you though. If you read this book be prepared for a huge cliffhanger at the end. Good thing the next book is out and I don’t have to wait for it.


I just can’t get over how much I love Daemon. Seriously. I’d do anything to be with him.


“A slow, wry smile teased Daemon’s lips. “Simmer down, Kitten, before I have to get you a ball of yarn to play with.”

5 out of 5

  1. I’m the odd one out with this series-I loved Obsidian so much, but as the story has progressed with the other two books out, it’s lost my attention and I don’t think I’ll be reading the 4th book 🙁
