I purchased this book myself.

GoodReads Synopsis:
Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…
Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.
Something worse than the Arum has come to town…
The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.
But then everything changes…
I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?
No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

I am so insanely happy that I found this series. I honestly can't get enough of it.
Alright, to get right into it, this book was so well written and just like Obsidian, it sucked me in immediately.  The story was full of twists and turns and kept you on the edge of your seat. We got to laern more about the DOD and the Luxen and it was very interesting to learn the rules and inner workings of the alien race and their enemies.

This book had quite a few moments that broke my heart and pissed me off but it just made me love it even more. The Thanksgiving scene... oh my goodness. I just kept falling more and more in love with Daemon.

It was also really neat to see the return of a couple of characters.  I can't get enough and I can't wait to read more.

Rating: 5 Stars.
Characters: Katy and Daemon.
