This world has captivated me since I read the first book in the first series. I love these characters. They are so real to me. So many of my favorites are all back together in this third book in this spinoff series. There were some I'd hoped to never see again. Yeah, that was a surprise. But it was so nice to spend time with Kat and Daemon, Dee and Archer, and even Dawson and Beth. Loved that Hunter is around a lot. So many favorites make this a great read.
And this is a great read. It's a hard book to put down because you just want to read and read. There is so much going on with lots of hints being dropped. I noted many a hint and saw part of it coming. But really, it was a surprise. And I love that. I love all the good moments. The happiness. The growth. The struggle. The Luc moments. But really the brilliance of this book is that the hints only add to the surprise.
I adore Luc. His love for Evie is so strong. He'll do anything to protect her. The tender moments between them were numerous and appreciated. I love spending time with these two. They are perfect together. Really, they are the reason this book is so hard to put down. I just wanted to savor every moment they spent together. I love Luc's silly pick-up lines. I love how Evie is aware of the pain that lives in Luc and is trying to help him. Luc is over protective. Evie is coming into her own. They are the amazing super couple of this world. Once everything falls together, I expect they will be unstoppable together and Daedalus is not prepared for what they have unleashed.
Luc's comic relief is always welcome. I love how he wants to buy a certain newborn a lama. He always gives the most interesting gifts. Think pet rock. Ha. It's always nice to have Luc around.
The ending was intriguing. Some will call it a cliffhanger. I'm not one of them. I lived through the Opal cliffhanger and this one didn't hit me like that. I felt it coming. And it didn't unsettle me. It made me want book 4 like now but I trust this author to give me an epic book 4 that will tie this all together. I trust there to be a happy for Evie and Luc...Nadia and Luc.
Trust. Recently, I read a book 2 from a different author. It was an experience that changed my reading habits. Like Twilight got me back into reading, this book almost got me out of reading. It came down to trust. The author had broke my trust over her characters. This author, Jennifer L. Armentrout, would NEVER break my trust over characters. She may take her characters down a road I wish they didn't have to travel. She may even Opal me but I trust her to do right by her characters. Book 4 will be epic and I believe that. I can't wait for the ride.
I have probably said this before, but I was not a fan of Luc when I first read the Lux series. Now…I can see how much he and Daemon are alike. And that squeezes my heart like a doggie chew toy, because now I kind of wish that I’d given him a fair shake earlier. This book sheds some more light on how he grew up in a Daedalus facility, how he knew that he was ‘created’ for a specific purpose, and it makes you just want to give him a hug.
Evie is a powerhouse in this book, and that’s not just limited to her powers. She has a strength of heart and integrity that’s admirable, despite everything she is forced to deal with. She and Luc together is a beautiful thing, and the depth of their devotion to one another is definitely on the same level as Kat and Daemon.
Again, there is a LOT that goes down in this novel – much of which I was not prepared for. Especially the ending! Oh, holy llamas, I did NOT expect what happened at all! But after I recovered from the shock (it’s still a work in progress, to be honest), it is a brilliant twist, and I adore it – even if a part of me is still upset by it. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment of this incredible series!
We pick up right where Jen left us: with our jaws on the ground with the knowledge that Jason Dasher is alive. ALIVE. And let me say, since I’ve read The Burning Shadow twice and the Lux series (where he originated from) a few times....HOW CAN HE BE BACK!? And I totally get how (no spoilers) but like just when you thought a certain group wasn’t going to come back....
But while hidden away in Zone 3 the gang is forced with a new challenge, as if they didn’t have enough on their plate with the flu circulating and the Daedalus being back: they need to get Evie’s abilities under control. Which is hard because the only time her abilities came to life was with a threat.
Jen, as always, kills it with her characters and their development. Evie has evolved in so many ways into the strong, independent, caring, and butt kicking heroine that we know her as throughout the book. Luc is well....Luc. Fierce. Protective. Cocky. Full of hilarious one liners. Luc and Evie compliment each other in all the best ways—so it was even more exciting to watch them continue to grow.
So, dear readers, buckle up because this book goes from 0-100 within a few pages. Worlds collide in this amazing 3rd installment that I still don’t fully understand what just happened in that book.
Amazing job, JLA!! 5/5

I kept reading, hoping something is bound to happen, but it's pretty much, more of the same. Besides the above points and the return of someone presumed dead, there is nothing new right until the end. Now that is supposed to make the reader look forward to the next one, but I am not sure. I must admit that I am a little curious. As much as I love Evie, Luc and the rest of the characters, I am not sure that I want to go through much of the same again. They say that curiosity kills the cat and this might apply in this case. It's a question of wait and see.
The first couple of chapters gave the impression that this book might be the last book in the series and there was this foreboding that something big will go down in this book….favourites will die and generally s*** will go down! 😱 Hold that thought, will come back to s*** will go down bit 🙈 🙊
After the shock revelations in the previous book, Evie put her big pants on and continued to grow and develop. She went on journey of self-discovery, learning more about her past, her newly discovered abilities and how to control them with the help of Luc.
Evie and Luc’s chemistry was sizzling ♨️ and at one point I was like: ”come on guys, get a room" oh, but you do have a whole house to yourselves, so really stop teasing each other before you combust” 🙈 🙊 🤣
The banter between Evie and Greyson cracked me up and I am wondering if these two might end up being BFF’s rather than frenemies. Greyson (deep sigh), what can I say, I fell deeply and madly in love with this hot 🔥 alien 👽 candy 🍭 I need Greyson in my life, like now! 🤣
Lux is my favourite series, so I was over the moon, whenever Kat, Daemon, Dee and Dawson made an appearance! 🤩🤗 It made me want to re-read the entire series again!
Now, that ending! 🥶 😱 Holy baby aliens 👽 I did not see it coming! 😭 I am still shocked! 🤯 😱 That was the mother of all cliff-hangers! 🥶 😭 Jennifer ripped my heart ❤ out and left me to bleed on the floor 😭 😭
Guys go read this amazing book and please don’t let the slow pace of this book to deter you from reading it because despite the slow pace, so many things happened and set the tone of what is to come in the last instalment.
It was good to see the return of Daemon, Kat, Archer, Dee, Dawson and Beth, even Hunter and Serena, and the concept of the Zones was interesting. Possibly the most intriguing character was Greyson, and I did enjoy the parts with him in. Sadly this book was clearly a money spinner, and it was a real disappointment. Having rushed to buy this on publication, I won't do so for the final book, although I am interested to see how the story ends. I had been thinking of trying another series by this author, but after the experience of this tedious book, I don't think I will do so.
Where do I even start?
I freaking loved that we got the whole gang back from the Lux series it was so good to see them😍
Then omg!! All the secrets that got exposed and the twists and turns , I’m so happy I didn’t walk into a spoiler all this time because it hit quite hard! I was literally screaming of happiness because I’m a sucker like that for bad guys who in my opinion deserved more justice *ehem*
Anyway Luc is the best! Sorry, not sorry Daemon. But his pick up lines and his overprotectiveness! I loved how the book explored seller topics such as their humanity when killing and Luc’s choices. I enjoyed to listen to their debates and it really gave depth to their relationship.
And Evie is awesome, not always the brightest in making decisions but I think her character is strong and a good fit for Luc.
Now can we talk about Greyson? He is literally the most underrated character. Like can he have a book? Or at least a support group? I love him and I want to know more of him so book four gives a perfect opening space him to step in and be seen more. Thank you!😄
Anyway, I’ll just go sit in a corner and cry myself into 2021 until the next book comes out.
