Publisher's Summary

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.

Wow that book was action packed from beginning to end. I loved listening to Katy & Daemon's journey and how much they grew from the first book. Great ending to a great series. I'll admit the
sci-fi aspect of this series is why it took me so long to listen to it but I'm so glad I did. I really enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. I should have known since it's Jennifer L. Armentrout and I enjoy all her books.

The narration was perfect by the time i finished the story these two narrators became these characters for me.

5 Opposition Stars

I am sad it is over. I really enjoyed the journey both Katy and Daemon go through. The author as a way with words when she can keep me interested in all 5 books. I can't remember the last time I binged a series like this.

This book had some highs and lows and it was slow in some parts but overall I can’t complain. I loved Kat, she is one heck of a chick. Not only does she not let Daemon get away with anything. But she has a way about her that you can’t help but admire.

She doubts herself but when push comes to shove she know what to say and how to say it in a way that everyone likes her and looks at the situation differently.

Daemon really because “humanized” he learned to let his feelings show and if that wasn’t hella sexy I don’t know what is because you wouldn’t have thought he would even grow to be like that from book one.

Some pretty crazy stuff goes down in this book and I can’t say that it doesn’t keep you on the edge of your seat. Dee and Archer also have some big issues to overcome. Luke is a character I grew to like and his story for me doesn’t feel finished. Maybe one day we will get an update.

I again loved the dual narration for this book as I did the last. Again I think Justine’s voice is a little old sounding for teenagers but once you get used to it you don’t even notice it anymore. And Rob well what can I say he is Daemon through and through for me.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Wow!

This series is so fluffing good! I loved the characters bore that i can explain. They are so well developed. Jennifer has this way of extracting all the emotion from you that she can so that you feel wholly invested in the book. I . Loved . It. I have read the whole series and can tell you it is one of my faves.

Who needs enemies when you have Katy around

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.

Perfect ending to a great series!

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.

Made it through book 5

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

Sooo goooood!!!

Ok, so when I started book one, I didn't think I was going to love this series. Daemon was such a jerk idiot and so unlikable that I kind of thought Katy was weak and maybe not that smart to fall for him. And in the next couple of books, Katy did such stupid things that I found it hard to like her as well. But the story kept me reeled in. Book 4 and 5 are the best. Book 5 is just full of action and twists and turns and just when you think it's over, it's not. And Daemon and Katy are just in love, no more fighting or pushing eachother away, just love and lots of lust too, which was cool. Not sure if this book is for younger teens, there's definitely a lot of sex happening, but the book doesn't describe it in too much detail, so it wasn't porn or anything. I started out super annoyed with Katy and Daemons story from book 1, I didn't even think I could continue the series, but I'm so glad I did. By book 5, I fell in love with their story and with them. Book boyfriends are just the best aren't they? They never smell bad, or say stupid things, or burp, morning breath, none of that. Daemon was the ultimate book boyfriend. No real person could every love a girl like Daemon loves Katy and I loved that!!

Action-packed sci-fi

Book 5 and last of series. No cliffhanger.

Young Adult Paranormal/Sci-fi with PG-13 romance.

It's all-out war in this book. Alien invasion. Conflict. Loss. Betrayal. Sacrifice.

Finally some sexy times, but very brief and very proper / PG.

The narration is good.

Good ending

Definitely sparked my imagination. Love the hero & heroine in this series. Love the interaction between them. Yummy book with charming characters, Great dialogue and vivid description. Fantastic Narration which adds to the story. Stayed up past my bedtime many nights to devour the whole series. Ending left me happy, even though I will miss spending time with "my new book friends."
