I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.

Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...

Once You Go (Daemon) Black…

If this is how aliens think, beam me up, Armentrout!

*Sigh*

*Deep romantical mushy emotional sigh*

I’m in love with an alien.

If I were to write my memoir starting from  today, it would start with that line.  I never expected it;
indeed, I fought it.  I frankly have no idea how Katy stayed away as long as she did when I read the Lux series the first time.

But from Daemon’s perspective?

God help me, I am way too old to be in love with a fictional alien boyfriend, but here I am, writing his name with little hearts around it.

So Katy and Daemon?

Well, we know this romance is doomed.  We think it’s a terrible idea.  The characters KNOW it’s a terrible idea.  And yet, here we are, facing Oblivion head on, watching Daemon and Kat fall deeper and deeper into something neither of them can control.

And who wants them to stop? Not me.

This version is so much better than the originals in that it explains (at least in the digital edition)
the first three books of the Lux series from Daemon’s perspective, including some shocking things that Armentrout throws in just to make us love him more (The keys caught me right in the feels)!

Daemon loves Katy.

We knew it before, but reading this book without all her insecurities and teenaged-girl emotional crappola, well, honestly it’s more about the overall story and not just a love story.  I know, I know.  You’re saying, “But it IS about their love story!!”

I’m telling you it can be about more.

Not that it matters… seeing how much this guy is in love with Kat, how he thinks about her, what he’s willing to do and sacrifice for her… Who am I kidding? It’s a love story. <3

But seriously, Jen Armentrout DELIVERS with this book.  As one of my top picks of 2015, (sorry for the late posting, but holidays and a MAMMOTH GIVEAWAY won out!!) you should have heard about it sooner.  But use that giftcard from Aunt Mary and grab it now.

Note: the paperback edition lacks the additional surprises in the digital version, which includes music downloads and more.
