I liked this about the same as Onyx. It had more romance, and an even sweeter and more dreamy Daemon, but less action. So it evens out in the end. The only action was the two escape attempts, which dont add up to many pages.

But I really appreciate all the romance, and the focus on Katy and Daemon's bond. The reaffirmation of their relationship. We need that assurance that they can get through what faces them next. I am still a bit worried about their fate, but not sad. All the fuss over the ending had me worried, because I am really sensitive and I didnt want to cry. But I didnt. It ended up not being the kind of cliffhanger that makes me cry. It was a surprise twist, but not especially sad. But it really has me anxious to read Origin.

Quotes Rebecca ♥ Matrim, Kishan, Magnus ♥ Liked

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“He…he kisses like he’s dying of thirst, and I’m water.” I smacked my hands over my hot face. “I can’t believe I just said that out loud.” Lesa giggled. “Sounds like one of those romance books you read.” “It does.” I started giggling. “But, oh Lordie Lord, it’s true. I’m like a puddle of mush when he kisses me. It’s embarrassing. I’m so, like, ‘Thank you, can I have another?’ Sad.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Opal

Rebecca ♥ Matrim, Kishan, Magnus ♥ Ash is from The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1) by Julie Kagawa. Kishan is from Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga, #1) by Colleen Houck, but he isnt in it a lot until book 2. I see that you didnt ask who Aiden is, but you havent read Half-Blood (Covenant, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout. You have to read it!

Ruthy Moo I'm planning on reading iron king soon. Did u like it? I thought about reading tiger curse but idk. And half blood is alreay on my kindle waiting for me to read it so I'm ready for that.

Rebecca ♥ Matrim, Kishan, Magnus ♥ The Iron Fey and Tiger's Saga are two of my fave series ever. Love them.

Ruthy Moo I'll have to check those two out. Thanks

Lauramaya the ending was so sad. is she planning on publishing another book in the lux series?

There are two more books to come.

Rachel G I wasn't crying either...I think I'm just too in shock. I literally just reread the last paragraph over and over (like 30 tines) thinking "that.did.not
just.happen. aaah can't believe we have to wait til summer to read the next one!

Ibtihal Ismail True. Even I am usually the crying baby while reading books but this ending, it was too startling to cry. Part of me kind of knew one of them wouldn't escape after hearing the reviews... What shocked me the most was the fact that Blake betrayed them yet again! I still am too stunned to process it. I loved Blake n really enjoyed his scenes through out the book n actually kind of started to trust him but BAM! Turns out to be bad guy :O All I want is Origin now.. Cannot wait to get into my Daemon's head <3 :* :D
