Oblivion Part III

Daemon's Point of View in Opal
Book #3 in LUX series
I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.
And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.
But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can’t stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.
Falling for Katy—a human—won’t just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen…

Oblivion part III is Daemon's point of view in the LUX series, Opal's book. I won't do a huge review of this one, because I have already posted my thoughts on Opal, and a lot of it is the same. Like Oblivion part I and II though, it also has some extra scenes to add a little something to the story, and it also ends with a small but from Paris's POV (will get to that in the end).
Part III really focuses on Daemon and Katy's relationship, and just how much he loves her. He loves her desperately. It also centers around Dawson, and the aftereffects of being imprisoned with Daedalus, and his determination to get Beth back from them. After weeks of Dawson trying to escape his family and find Beth, Katy offers Daemon and her's help to get her back to Dawson.
As we know from Opal, Katy is the glue that helps Daemon and Dawson bond again. Through Daemon's thoughts, we know he was very angry with Dawson, and thought he was an idiot for dating Beth before they were captured. It caused a lot of tension in their relationship. We know Daemon has changed quite a bit since meeting Katy. Dawson watching Daemon's goodness come out, seeing him in love ... with a human no less, brings the brothers closer than ever. Daemon finally understands why Dawson did the things he did. He couldn't help it. He loves Beth, like Daemon loves Katy.
It's also interesting to see how Daemon and Katy's relationship progresses through his point of view. No doubt, they still argue like they did before they got together, but now he makes an effort to listen to her. He knows she is strong. Respects the hell out of her. Their trust in one another is unshakable.
Small note, I love when they finally make love, and how utterly tender he is with her. How nervous he is. He makes no secret he has lots of experi
