What is this book about? When seventeen-year-old Katy Swartz moved to West Virginia right before her senior year, she’d pretty much resigned herself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring, but then she spotted her hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up…until he opened his mouth. Daemon Black is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. It’s hate at first sight, but when a stranger attacks her and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens. The hot guy next door? Well, he’s an alien. (Amazon)

Who should read this book? Anyone who loves an addictive young adult romance

Would you have tea with the protagonist? Naaa.

Would you fall for the main love interest? YES. He'd pretend he wan't interested and that would make me chase him even more!

Would you want to 'strain' the main antagonist? Not really, although the Arum are supposed to be the Luxens' worst enemies, they seem to be easily defeated each time they run into eachother.

Were the characters three dimensional? A teeny bit 2D.

Would you like to have tea in a cafe in West Virginia? Yeah sure.

Do you like the authors flavour of writing? I do.

Was the writing strong or weak? Kind of in between

Was the ending to your taste? This book didn't really go out in a bang. Saying that, I did immediately start the next one on finishing Obsidian.

If this cover were tea, would you drink it? No it's quite a boring cover in my opinion.

Favourite Quote? "Swimming was the last thing I wanted to do. Drowning him? Maybe.”

Overview: I started this after finishing The Night Circus as, although The Night Circus was a BRILLIANT book, it was one of those concentrating books (where accidentally scanning over one page is fatal towards your understanding of the story!) and I really needed something paranormal romance-y that I'd finish in a day and wouldn't need a huge amount of effort to do so. Getting really really into the Lux series was never part of the plan. But it happened. While this isn't the most incredible book and the characters can get rather annoying, I'm liking this series and most likely will read them all...but it's a secret!

Do you ever accidentally get caught up in whole series'? Any books you'd like us to review?
