Starting over sucks.
we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much
resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot
of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height
and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But
when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a
wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of
enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit
up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is
by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don't kill him first, that is.
“I hate you and your freaky alien powers.”
were so many things that irritated me throughout this whole book, yet I
never stopped reading it because I wanted to find out why everyone else
seems to love this book/series so much.
This book was
entertaining, but I disliked all of the characters so much that the
entertainment value didn't make-up for the dislike of the characters.
liked Katy at first, but as she got closer to Daemon I started to
dislike her. He was always able to get under her skin everyday and to
make her so angry at him that she ended up just letting him get away
Now with Daemon I did understand why he was so
protective of his sister, and why he didn't like Katy being around her.
It wasn't enough to make-up for him being such a jerk and treating
everyone like crap.
Dee was probably my favorite one of them
she was kind, and treated others like they should be treated. She
didn't want there to be people she couldn't befriends with and she just
wanted to have a normal human life. I did dislike that she always made
excuses for Daemons behavior though and that she always covered for him.
Overall while this wasn't a horrible storyline itself. The characters ended up ruining it and making it not very enjoyable.
