Starting over sucks.When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.And then he opened his mouth.Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens.The hot alien living next door marks me.You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.If I don't kill him first, that is.
Can I just take this moment to say how much I adore Armentrout’s writing??
She’s so witty with her banter that both the protagonists Daemon and Katy just roll of the pages at you. Every time I bounce back into this world, I never get bored. It’s like... WHAT KIND OF POWERS DOES ARMENTROUT POSSESS?? To create a world like this, is just so…. EPICALLY EPICAL. It’s like I could reread this series for-EVA and never, ever grow bored of it! ♥ I’m not sure if it’s due to the aliens or the romance or whatever but I, Keionda Lei Lewis, am HOOKED FOR LIFE. I feel like this review is like, ALL over the place because that is just how excited I am over this series! So forgive me in advance if I totally fan girl all the way through.
All right, let’s get into it!
Hello. Sorry for starting this off so formal, I’m just really, really nervous and it’s just that I’m like so in love with you even though you’re FICTIONAL but that’s okay.
You know what? scratch that. Let me start over fresh:
My revised letter to Daemon Black, because he is just a SEXY. Okay, here goes.
Eh yo, Daemon. What’s good booiiiiiii?
I know you don’t know me and all that, which totally makes writing this letter to you, SUPA DUPA odd. But I just wanted to let you know that I kind of have this desperate crush on you since like,oh, I don’t know, two years ago?
I know you’re like totally moody all the time ever since you lost your brother Dawson to the horrible DOD but… you see, I have pain, YOU definitely have pain, so really we’re the classical story of two really messed up people that belong together. I know you hate humans for what they’re doing to you and your family but I’M SO IN LOVE WITH YOU. I’ll take you, mood swings and all. I am not a picky.
Ever since I met you in Obsidian two years ago, I knew you were going to make me fall KOO-KOO-KA-CHU for you. And now that I have…. I mean, I kinda just wanted to out that out there for ya. Ball’s in your court and all that, though.
Yours FO EVA AND EVA,
Wow. So, I re-read this letter over again and noticed it kind of sounds… serial killer-ish? So, I’ll most likely be keeping this to myself… or will I? I honestly wish Daemon Black was real because MAN I’d be all over him like pink on a Llama. (Okay, Llamas aren’t pink, but….but… oh, whatever)
For those of you that HAVE read this glorious series by this equally the always lovely Jennifer L. Armenrout, what did you guys think about Daemon Black? Are you as affected by him as I am? *blushes* For those of you that haven’t yet tried it out, have I convinced you to try it yet?
