Item Details

Baker & Taylor
When seventeen-year-old Katy moves to West Virginia she expects to be bored, until she meets her neighbor who just happens to be an alien.

Perseus Publishing
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.

If you are a Twilight fan then this is a great read alike. There are no vampires or wolfs but there are still plenty of other scary things that go bump in the night.

While this series has proven to be incredibly popular, I just couldn't bring myself to be all that interested in it. Daemon, despite his own reasoning and being the main love interest for the protagonist, is cruel towards Katy. He insults her to her face and humiliates her in front of the whole school during her first couple days there.

Does nobody else find this relationship problematic?

5+ Stars This book. Was. AMAZING. I've heard so many great things about this book, but I was always reluctant to pick it up because only 3/5 books in the series have come out. And I am not a great fan of waiting 1-2 years for the last book to come out. But it is the summer, and since I had nothing better to do, I borrowed it from the library. I mean, after all, I can just re-read the series when the last book finally comes out (which is what I usually end up doing). I do NOT regret reading this. At all. The book hooked me right from the beginning, and then on, I could barely put it down. It went straight into the action, introducing all the main characters right away, which I loved. I liked Katy. She was a strong, compassionate person, when she wanted to be, and liking the main character of the book makes the story a lot better. Can I say though. There was A LOT of sexual tension and sexual references. Especially for a YA book. But that was what made the romance, and the story in general, much more intriguing. These moments are just too intense for me to ruin by putting into a review. But when they finally kissed...oh, my. I am definitely going to buy this book sometime, so I can just read it over and over again. Which is not something I usually do (in fact, I've probably never done it.), so it says a lot. In fact, I might just buy the ENTIRE series, depending on what others think of the next books. I definitely recommend this book to all romance, paranormal, and alien lovers out there!

I absolutely loved this book!!! OMG Daemon kept me on my toes as did Katy.XD For everyone who has read this book you might agree, but if you haven't read it then you will understand, but page 189 was one of my favorite pages in the book. This book made me want to buy it as soon as I finished reading it, I will never get enough of reading this book. I stayed up all night just to read it and trust me peeps it's very much so worth it.

I thought this book was great. It's a neat storyline, different from the other supernatural types that are popular nowadays (vampires, werewolves) and I liked the characters. The plot kept me hooked, even though Daemon can be quite frustrating and at times it felt like not a whole lot happened plot wise. I'm really looking forward to the sequel.
