Goodreads summary

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.

Aliens? Sexy? Erm I don’t think so….

I was so wrong! Aliens can be a sexy! When they look like Daemon they sure can be!

I’m so glad that I got this book because holy mother of everything that is holy was this book amazing!!
This book is a promising start of a great new series that I am going to fall in love with, not be able to sleep because of it, and not stop thinking about it!

There’s a little story as well for this book-
One peaceful night I was going to sleep, I was cosy in my bed at around midnight waiting for my eyes to get tired and go to sleep. When all of a sudden I see these great white lights outside my bedroom window! (My bedroom faces the garden so there really is nothing out there) There are no streets, no windows nothing that could have made this bright light so as the rational person I am I hid under my covers and alerted my friend that I was being attacked by no-one else than aliens! The lights were still there, flashing ever couple of minutes making me huddle up under the covers with my teddies I had to dim my phone light in case they saw it and kidnapped me!
So morning came (after I stayed up for an hour or so calming myself down) and off I went to school to tell everyone what a popular girl I am, to be attacked by aliens. Well green little things, with tentacles and one eyes and what nots. So not sexy!
-This did actually happen, well the lights part, I’m not so sure I was visited by green little monsters but the lights did happen and I was a little tiny bit scared. That is until I read this book, and until I found out that Daemon has a white-redish light… I wouldn’t mind if Daemon decided to invade me, not one little bit! He can invade whenever he likes!

Back to the book- this book is absolute sheer brilliance! It has everything that you could ever want and more! And the thing I loved about it the most was the fact that there aren’t many books about hot aliens out there. Mostly vampires and warewolves but no next-door-alien-hotness that is Daemon Black. But seriously, If Daemon lived next door to me, and he was shirtless well clumsy little me might just forget how to walk, and then breathe. He would have to carry me (shirtless) and then give me the kiss of life, or a few of them.

It is official Jennifer is one of my new favourite authors of all time!
After reading Half-Blood I was certain that her writing can’t get any better, and was I wrong! I am falling deep in love with her writing, her characters, her plots. Everything! She writes for teenagers, with a teenager voice, which a lot of authors forget half the time. But Jennifer doesn’t, her books are exciting, electrifying, and refreshing. Katy is a normal teenage girl, falling for a not so normal but totally hot so we can forgive him for not being from this planet Daemon. Who in the world can blame her for falling for him? His douchy side, his hot side, his very very hot body and everything else about him.

Pretty please can I give this book 100000000000 more bright stars?


  1. Same here, I never thought aliens could be so sexy! Daemon is schmexy hot :D
