really liked it


Oh no.Oh no,no,no.Noooooooooooooooooo...........

Just give me a moment.....

I need to calm down!!!


Sorry,where are my manners???

Hello Readers!!!

Why am I in this condition???

I'll have to start from the beginning!!


------------------------------------------------------

Yesterday morning---

Okay,all of you,....stay calm,...stay cool,....take deep breaths....

Here we go.....

DAEMON BLACK IS BACK!!!!

Yes,yes I know it's TRUE!!!

Hmmmmmmmmmmm..................."I'm just a fool,a fool in love with you....."

Ouch...did someone just chuck a shoe at me???


Yeah,yeah!!I'll stop singing and get back to the story!!
>


The Storyline--

The story starts exactly where it was left off in Onyx!!Adam is dead and Dawson's back!!But nothing is the same anymore.Katy and Daemon's whole world has gone topsy-turvy!!


Dawson maybe back but he is only a shell of the man he used to be.The DOD still have Beth and Dawson's going crazy.He is ready to do anything to get Beth back.And that means rushing to the DOD headquarters if he has to.

But Daemon had already lost his brother once.He's not going to lose him a second time.So,he is constantly baby-sitting his brother.

And then Daemon decides to take Katy out to dinner on a date while Dee babysits Dawson.

But,Daemon gets a call in middle that Dawson's somehow made a run for it.Telling Ordering Katy to go home,he goes after Dawson!!

But Katy being Katy,follows Daemon and finds the brothers in the middle of a fight.

“Here was the problem.Dawson wouldn’t stop.Deep down Daemon knew and understood why and would do the same thing.It was hypocritical to the umpteenth degree to demand someone else do otherwise.There had to be a compromise.

And there was one. “ Let us help you.”


And so Katy promised that they would help Dawson to find Beth.

But Dawson’s not their only problem!!

Blake is back too!!

Yes Readers,you heard me right.Blake’s back and he wants their help.He knows where Beth is.It’s the same place where his friend Chris is being kept.He needs their help and they need his.

And Dee,the sweet bubbly girl,has turned into a cold and unfeeling bitch.She wants to kill Blake.

Dawson will not let anyone kill Blake as only he can lead to Beth.

And then there are the Elders who can outcast Daemon for being with a human.

And then there is the chance that all of this is a trap. A big trap for Daemon and Katy set by the DOD.

Readers,you must have heard of the saying---‘Between the devil and the deep blue sea.’

“We’d been blackmailed—trapped again,and what could we do? Refuse to go along with Blake and be turned over? Or trust someone who had already proven he wasn’t worthy of such a thing?

God,we were screwed to the tenth degree.”


And so Readers,welcome to the crazy world of Opal.

And welcoming you is Daemon(of course)---

“He immediately started charming my mom until she was nothing but a gooey puddle in the middle of the foyer.
He loved her new haircut.She got one?I guessed her hair did look different.Like she’d washed it or something.Daemon told her that the diamond earrings were beautiful.The rug below the steps was really nice.And that leftover scent of mystery dinner—because I still hadn’t figured out what she fed me—smelled divine.He admired nurses worldwide,and by that point,I couldn’t keep my eye rolls to a minimum.

Daemon was ridiculous.”


Yes,**sigh** That’s Daemon,ridiculously charming.

“Slowly he looked at me,and then he bent down,planting his lips on mine.The kiss was unexpected—deep and forceful.Stunned I just stood there as I pulled back,nipping at my bottom lip.

"Tasty,Kitten." Then he spun,planted his right hand on Blake’s shoulder,knocking him back into a locker. “See you around,” he said,smirking.”


Yes,**sigh again**.That’s Daemon,ridiculously possessive.

“I loathe Blake.He used me and was ready to turn me over to Daedalus.He killed Adam.There’s only a teeny tiny bit of me that can actually tolerate him.How can you even be any bit jealous of him?”

“He wants you.”

“Oh,dear God,he does not.”

“Whatever.I’m a guy.I know what other guys are thinking."


Told you,ridiculously jealous.

"Daemon spoke in his language.The lyrical quality of his words made no sense to me.

“What did you say?” I asked.

“There’s really no translation for it,” he said, “but the closest human words would be,you are beautiful to me.”


And....ridiculously romantic.

THE PERFECT PACKAGE!!

And together they make the perfect couple!!

------------------------------------------------

I was so,so in love with this book.

And then,the unthinkable happened.

Warning Readers—CLIFFHANGER!!CLIFFHANGER!!CLIFFHANGER!!

Be prepared for your heart to be torn out!!!

Hell no,I am NOT adding any spoilers!!!


Why??

Because I suffered.....a lot!!

And I want you to experience the pain which I felt!!


Does that make me evil???

Mwahahahahahaha.....

You bet it does!!

Ta-Ta,Readers!!Enjoy!!

AJ Great review Dd! I am terrified to start this book! If it's possible for me to resist Daemon, I think I might hold out until it's closer to the release of Origin in July. I don't think my heart could take any more cliffys!

Don't say anything, I'd rather not know. I'm waiting on my paperback to arrive in the mail, so I've got a bit of time to get used to the hideous ending before I get into it. And I probably won't be able to resist and will start it as soon as it arrives anyway. Thanks for the warning though!
