The author:


Me *sobbing*:



When life gives you cliffhangers...





















...Get depressed and start throwing shit.

I. Am. A. Freaking. Mess.


Authors are like medieval torturers reincarnated!! They rip out your HEART and then CRUSH it with their cliffhangers and heart-wrenching scenes! They lull you into a false sense of security and then dump you in a vat of 'feels' and endless piles of used up tissues and chocolate!! WHY?!

I was so happy! I was ENJOYING IT! And..and then you had to go and-!

*sobs and curls into a ball* WHHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYY?!!





Please - leave me! *sniffles and dabs at eyes* I'll...I'll post up a review after a mourning period of three days...three days in which I will eat nothing but ice-cream and sob about cliffhangers in all their evil, sadistic glory!!

*muffled sobs*

“There was a pause, then his lips stretched into a smile. "You're right."
Hell froze over. Pigs were flying. "Come again?"
"You're right. I should have checked in at some point. I'm sorry."
The world was flat. I didn't know what to say. According to Daemon, he was right about 99 percent of the time. Wow.”

“Dawson shifted, dropping his head into his hand. "Do you ever stop talking?"

"When I'm sleeping," Blake replied.

"And when you're dead," Daemon threw back. "You'll stop talking when you're dead."

Blake's lips thinned. "Point taken.”

“Daemon snatched the yellow packages from my hands. “Oh! Books! You have books!”
I laughed as several people waiting in line looked over their shoulders. “Hand them over.”
He clutched them to his chest, making moony eyes. “My life is now complete.”
“My life would be complete if I could actually post a review on something other than the school library computers.”
I did that about twice a week since my latest laptop went to the big computer heaven in the sky.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Opal

"You're not the only one who gets to make brash and stupid decisions."
His mouth snapped shut. "That's not the point."
I cocked a brow. "Lame argument."
Daemon shot forward, his voice harsh. "YOu had no right to make those kind of promises to MY brother. He's not YOUR family."
I flinched..
"We're in this together."
Daemon's eyes met mine. "Not on everything, Kat. Sorry. That's just the way it is.""

Thanx - I'm in a state of agony and these gifs accurately describe the feelings running through me! Methods of coping have included the demolishing of two velvet cupcakes, a whole lot of tissues and listening to Taylor Swift on repeat :D

Booknut Melissa wrote: "just read on Jennifer Armentrout's fb page shes working on the last chapter from Daemon's POV...can we live through this again??"

I have no ideas on how we will survive! *sighs* I guess we will just have to take it one, long, pain-filled day at a time :)

And thank you, Kathleen - I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Elevetha Not cliffhanger. Life-ruiner.


Booknut Elevetha wrote: "Not cliffhanger. Life-ruiner."

*nods sadly* So, so true.


*Lynn* LOVE IT! Great review girlie! I felt the same way when it ended. I was so upset. People who don't read have no understanding how a cliffhanger like this can put a avid reader like us in a depression where only junk food can console us. I am dying for the next book! X|


message 24: by Nora (new) - rated it 4 stars

Nora My thoughts exactly upon finishing this book. I can't wait for the next book. If somebody else I like dies in the next one, I'm going to start a riot.

Thanks, Lynn - cliffhangers are a bookworm's kryptonite, to be sure!!

Oh my gosh, yes - if anyone else gets killed off, locked up or otherwise separated from their true love I will join your riot with pleasure! :)

Nora Great! I'll prepare the pitchforks and torches. ;-)


Booknut Haha! And I'll bring the stakeout snacks, hand grenades and Kleenex boxes :D


message 29: by Nora (new) - rated it 4 stars

Nora Perfect! Looking forward to disturbing the peace with you, should the need arise.


Booknut *grins* Same here!
