I would give this book 3.5 for a review.
Starting over sucks.
When 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.
Daemon 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.
You 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.
My Brief Thoughts:
I thought this was a super fun read. I really loved the alien mythology that was introduced to us and also the cast of characters. I really do love the lead girl in this story but am struggling to adore to adore the boy lead cause he can be a jerk. But he does have his moments and I am def interested in reading more in this series. I think the pacing of this book and also the mythology are the highlights of this series for me so far. I really am intrigued to see what happens next. If you were a fan of roswell back in the day i rec. you check out this read.
My Extended Thoughts!!
Characters: Since this book is the first book in new series, the characters did lack so depth but I have high hopes for the future book in this series. I did like the characters but I felt like I need more time to become emotionally invested in the characters!
The world building: I felt the world building was the highlight of the novel and was the thing that kept me to keep reading. I was really fascinated by the world the most in this novel. It def screamed roswel vibes!
Pace! I thought his book was a super fast pace read and was hard to put down!
Will I keep reading this series! Yes for sure! Hopefully after book con!
Later book lovers!
