No one is like Daemon Black

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn't fooling around. Doubting him isn't something I'll do again, and now that we've made it through the rough patches, well... There's a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can't protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I'm no longer the same Katy. I'm different... And I'm not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I'm capable. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won't turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we are stronger...and they know it.

      It's no secret that I'm a fan of the Lux series, but I was trying to wait to read Opal because I was warned that it had a big cliffhanger at the end and Origin wasn't out yet. That worked out for all of two days before I gave in and read it. During the entire novel I was a big ball of nerves. I didn't know what to expect which made me even more nervous to begin with. There's a lot of new information to deal with in Opal and Katy and Daemon seem to be in a no win situation. It's harder to differentiate the truth from the lies and who are allies or enemies.

I feel that Opal has a slower pace than Obsidian and Onyx. There is a lot of information thrown at the reader and most of the book is preparing for this big event, so the real action doesn't really start until the latter part of the book. But once the action starts it feels like it's a sprint until the end which leaves you heartbroken and in shock.

Daemon and Katy still have this funny sarcastic dialogue that kept me laughing throughout the book, and Daemon keeps on melting my heart. *sighs* Again, Jennifer L. Armentrout does a wonderful job of pulling me into the story and giving me all of the feels. Although Opal isn't my favorite book of the series, I really enjoyed reading it. Let me just say that the end left me hyperventilating and needing Origin stat. 


  1. Yes, the ending killed me! What a cliffhanger, I about threw my Kindle. I love Katy and Daemon together, and you're right, this whole series has all the feels. Love the dialogue between those two. Read Origin as soon as it came out and still love the series and can't wait to find out how it all ends! ~Pam

    1. I know! I got it the same day it came out and devoured it! I'm anxious for Opposition to come out...jejeje

  2. Just bought Obsidian...cant wait to start this series!! Great review!

  3. This one has been sitting on my pillow waiting for me to get to it. I also didn't want to read it until Opal was out.
