Synopsis (Goodreads)

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

Review: 5 out of 5 stars

I can’t believe the Lux series has come to an end {sob} and boy was it an action packed thrilling conclusion!

What I love about JLA’s writing is it realistic in the sense the voices of the characters are believable in their actions and reactions and they have stayed true throughout the series. The beginning of the book had me worried with Daemon appearing like an arrogant ass in front of his fellow Luxen; I had no idea what to think of his behaviour and I felt sorry for Katy but in true JLA fashion she didn’t let me down with the romance which continues to make me smile.

I prepared myself for a lot of death and destruction in this book and no one seemed to be left unscathed by the invasion but I enjoyed watching how it would all play out and whether there would eventually be peace.

The plot was fast paced and kept me flipping the pages, it focused on the invasion but there was also a nice blend of action, romance, deceit and I was surprised by who the Luxen approached for help, I enjoyed this aspect. There were also some incredibly heart-wrenching moments but in true JLA fashion it was handled well. I loved how this book was told in dual POV, it was especially good for me at the beginning of the book when everything was still all over the place.

The characters are fabulous! I love Dee & Archer, Dawson & Beth and especially Luc, this guy seriously needs his own book as does Lore.

JLA’s writing is consistent and her storytelling keeps me riveted, I love the dialogue; there are always a few laugh out loud moments and the revelations were surprising. I couldn’t put this book down! The epilogue left me smiling.

Overall, an incredibly intense and emotionally satisfying conclusion to the series, I am sad it has come to an end.
