Now, let's discuss what you read during the week, Opal, Chapters 19-36.
Here's what I thought about the chapters I read so far:
Oh, how I love this latter half of the book. Sure, things move kind of slow as they prepare to get Beth out of Mount Weather, but so much happens with Daemon and Katy's relationship, it makes my heart melt. They are seriously one of my favorite couples. I just love seeing Daemon's feeling for Katy shine through in the best possible ways. She has definitely changed him for the better. And when things take a turn for the worse, the depth of his love and affection for her is so touching. You can't help but smile. And that ending?! It breaks my heart every time.
Thank you all for your feedback on the first half of Opal. I loved all your responses about the book. Here's what some readers had to say:
Sonia Hart says "My favorite part would have to be when Dawson talked to Katy about his problems. Even though he has a perfectly good brother and sister, he doesn't talk to them but to Katy and I think it is beautiful. Whether he does it because he wants to or because she knows what Beth & Dawson went though, I don't know but I love the fact that he tells her all about that place and Beth. It means he trust her even though he just met her, which is nice."
Susan Knoell says "The best parts of this book are the normal moments between Daemon and Katy. it is completely swoon worthy when he introduces her as his girlfriend to fellow Luxen knowing what that means for him."
Be sure to come back here next Monday to discuss the chapters we read and answer some questions for your chance at winning some pretty cool prizes!
Next up, we'll be reading Origin, Chapters 1-15.
Daemon will do anything to get Katy back. After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure. All Katy can do is survive. Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen? Together, they can face anything. But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on? And will they be standing together?
