Synopsis
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.

      ~ Buddy Style Reads ~
    Three Ways to Enjoy a Book!
At NRBC we use three styles of buddy reads. These will be indicated in the thread title as “Buddy Read”, “Relaxed Buddy Read” or “Informal Buddy Read”.
A “Buddy Read” has a discussion leader and a reading date is set to start the book. A reading schedule is posted prior to the start date and discussion questions are posted each day regarding that section of the book. More information about these types of reads is below. An example is here, showing a reading schedule here.

A “Relaxed Buddy Read” is similar to our usual “buddy reads” except there are less questions and break points. For example, a book may be split into three sections and those reading the book should pause at the end of the section to answer some discussion questions, make comments, or ask their own questions to other readers. An example is here.

An “Informal Buddy Read” doesn’t have a discussion leader and participants are asked to consider some generic questions when making comments about the book. An example is here.

A “Read and Watch Buddy Read” may be set up as any of the above, but we will also watch the movie or T.V. series - or even go to a play! - and make comparisons, discussing what has been left out or changed as well as the actors and actresses. There is a long debate of what one should do first: read the books or watch the movie? We usually read first, but it isn’t essential. Also, if you would like to join in, but don’t want to watch the movie, show, or play, but only read the books, that is fine, too. An example is here.

Joanne Up to Chapter 5

(view spoiler)

Does anyone else feel like the writing in these books is... just... not that great? I know I'm probably supposed to care about these characters and about Katy and Daemon's relationship, but I honestly don't. And that's not usually a problem I have in books with romance.


Jammin Jenny (jamminjenny) | 4149 comments I am going to be starting this book very soon. Just need to finish up a few more.


Joanne Up to Chapter 17

message 26: by Ora (new) - rated it 4 stars

Ora (oeamis) I’m rereading this series. I love it. Anyone who is reading this for the first time I would highly recommend reading Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout . I believe it takes the same time as book 4 and will you see the bigger picture of what is going to happen in book 5. When I read it, it made me realize the battle between the Luxon and Arem aren’t as black and white as we are seeing it now.


message 27: by Ora (new) - rated it 4 stars

Ora (oeamis) I finished. I definitely enjoyed this book more after reading the e-book Oblivion (Lux, #1.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout with Daemon's POV.

(view spoiler)


Joanne I'll have to look into those ones Ora!

Who's up for the next book? I just started it on audio.

Daemon is spot on with Blake. I got so frustrated with Katy working with him. It’s a shame Katy has to learn for herself.

I just finished the book and it's a cliffhanger to hell. I know that dipshit was bad news and was gonna sell them. And I have a feeling the Luxen he got out wasn't even the Chris he keeps whining about rescuing. And I can't get over the fact that Kat got that end, although awfull as it is, right smacked in her face. When is that girl gonna learn to listen to her gut feeling and work with it? It's getting on my last nerve.
Now we go to the next torture in the series.


message 33: by Ora (new) - rated it 4 stars

Ora (oeamis) I think what really drove me crazy was that she didn't trust Daemon to train her. (view spoiler)
