Katy knows that the world changed the night the Luxen came. She can't believe that Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her-could destroy them all.
Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal. He and Katy must team up with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe and the world begins to crumble around them, they may have to sacrifice everything-even what they cherish most-to ensure the survival of their friends . . . and mankind.

I was a completer hater through book 1 but obviously kept reading. This book was the perfect ending to the series. I will "miss" the characters...all of them! Especially LOVE daemon and his alpha male obnoxiousness! I didn't think I would make it through a 5 book series (3 is generally enough) but this completely kept my interest! So clearly I must've like it. Tons of action, love and everything else
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
This was the perfect ending to a great series. I thought it nicely tied up loose ends and left the whole series with a satisfying conclusion. Although I am sad to say good-bye to these characters I enjoyed the entire listen.
I realize that I'm in the minority here with my feelings for this series. But you see, if you take out one part of the equation in the last three or so books and I would have really enjoyed them. The problem with that is, it's Katy. She's kind of a big part of this particular series, so yeah...
Daemon and his family are with the Luxen that have invaded. The Luxen that are the bad guys, the body snatchers and the ones trying to take over our planet. Not good, not good at all.
***Insert parts with Stupid Katy and the many times she just about kills everyone. Lots of eye rolls and general irritation. Just stop already. Let them kill her so the rest of the group survives, geez! I know, you can't do that. Like I said, she's a big part of this YA love story. Blah, blah, blah, they live happily ever after.***
The sad thing is, take Katy out and I enjoyed the rest of the story. I'm still beyond irritated with her or I could point out the good parts. It wasn't so bad and some of it was really good. I really liked the first couple of books but I'm so glad to have finished this series up. I just don't think I could go on with it.
The beginning and near the end of this book gutted me. The rest was delicious and funny. The dual POV continued to be a bonus for me. I love hearing the internal dialogue of Daemon Black. This will continue to be one of my favorite series.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a great addition and conclusion to the Lux series. Well there's an alien invasion taking place on Earth and Katy and Daemon get caught right in the middle of it. When the other Lux first land, their combined mind power is enough to cause Daemon, Dawson and Dee to go with the other Luxen. However, Daemon and Dawson are able to hold their own...seemingly because of their connections to Katy and Bethany. There's trouble...major trouble! Lots of people get killed and Katy, Daemon and friends are caught in the middle of it all. It takes some creative thinking and some risky moves to come up with a good defense against the invading Luxen. Thankfully, things work out and the invasion is stopped, ending the story with nice HEAs for Daemon & Katy as well as Dawson & Bethany and Dee and Archer.
I enjoyed this story greatly and was caught up in it from beginning to end. I loved Daemon & Katy but all the characters added to the story (both good and bad ones). Overall, this was an action packed story that also emphasizes how much love can give you strength to take on seemingly impossible odds. I would definitely recommend this story and series. :D
* note - There were 2 narrators, a female for the parts from Katy's PoV and a male for the parts from Daemon's PoV. Both narrators did very good jobs.
Great end to an awesome series.
Was really hoping at the end that Kat would have shown a hidden abiliry, like healing. There was all this talk about how amped up she was feeling then nothing. Story rapped up pretty quickly after the final battle but still felt like I was left hanging.
There were a whole slew of questions left unanswered so I am really hoping to see some short stories or spinoff series with Luc, those Origin kids, Ashley, whatever. Definately want a short story about the last question Kat was asked at the end and how that turns out!
How could someone choose this horrible, nerve- racking, incapable female reader. It is a shame, because it distroyed the whole story and made it nearly impossible to listen. Justine Eyre is a absolute NO GO.
It's a mixed bag because both narrators mispronounced names and terms. Justine Eyre just doesn't fit for this particular story at all, but Rob Shapiro does an overall excellent job in spite of the mistakes.
The entire epilogue was stellar! I loved it!
Justine's performance - nothing really. I enjoyed Rob's ability to nail Daemon's character vocally and he did a good job with the other male and female characters as well.
'They'll need each other to survive...' This is the same quote printed on the hardcover edition.
I'll never stop wishing that Tantor had confirmed correct pronunciations of all character names and terms with the author before recording this series. If there's anyway for those mispronunciations to be corrected, they should really seriously consider doing so.
I just love this series, it's so unpredictable, with lots of twists and turns.
All characters are well developed and strong.
I enjoyed the narrators too
Highly recommend with 5 fabulous stars
