I am so in love with these two + Dee + a few other characters. This story is rife with love + betrayal + so many difficult stories. Also, I love that she's a blogger! I totally connect with her character. <3 She's so real and complex, but all the characters are multi-dimensional through the story. How else would you be drawn so far into this world of aliens and alternate universes? I also believe that if the bad guys aren't complex, they're not realistic at all. So when I find myself truly wishing a character ill, I feel it's an amazing story.
On of my favorite scenes in this first book is when Katy goes to the neighbor's house since the kids living there are around her age. She's simply going to ask directions, but the ulterior motive is to try to become friends with one or both teens. And man, there is some serious chemistry from the first interaction! I'm rooting for them from the beginning.
Armentrout has seriously made me an alien fan with this series, which is really saying something because any time I've experienced alien fantasy, I'm bored. This...well, I think aliens are pretty fantastic now! You're gonna want to at least try the sample, but you'll be sucked in within the first chapter if you're anything like me!
That being said this book is such a stereotype of the Young Adult genre - there is the unearthly beautiful boy, who is a jerk; there is the beautiful but doesn't realize it girl (luckily here she is also a book-blogger - scoring bonus points in my book); and there is the paranormal elements and the romantic story. BUT with all those stereotypes it was still a great read. I am a sucker for the jerk/hot guy in YA books and their love/hate thing is intoxicating.
The story follows a girl in a new town with mysterious neighbors, they have a secret and she is getting weird vibes from the whole town. She is introduced and then weirder things start to happen. The rest of the book is about Daemon pushing away while his sister, Dee, wants to be her best friend.
I really enjoyed this book and flew through it in a few sittings, I already have the 2nd book on my shelf so that one will be picked up very soon... but I kind of want to spread them out a bit.
Dee was of course the most likable of all the characters,it was hard for her not to be. She wanted to be "normal" and have a normal friend who wasn't afraid of her. And Katy fit that bill and she liked Dee right back.
Katy could come up with attitude all on her own and Daemon seemed the right person to bring that out of her. She took a lot of grief before she finally dealt it right back. She could have quite the mouth on her when she didn't freeze up around him.
Daemon could be likable at times and then he reverted to the arrogant stay away from me and my sister "jerk". One of the names Katy called him. As time went on I could see why he blew hot and cold but after awhile, I felt like saying enough already.
I liked the Sci-fi elements to it and even some of the friendships. But it was also written for a younger crowd to my way of thinking. It was so high school in many of the encounters; well, because they were going to high school. It also had elements of danger and more danger threatening with some mystery thrown in.
This book ended with some issues taken care of but with the door left wide open for more adventures.
