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.

Wow. Jennifer L. Armentrout never disappoints, and Opposition was no exception. Fast, action-packed, sassy, smooth, sexy, ripe with anticipation, plot twists and characters we all know and love, Opposition was the perfect finale to this absolutely stunning series. (Not to mention, the cover actually looks good! Seriously, you have no idea how glad I am that she’s had the covers redone.)

Jennifer has the amazing ability to draw you in and have each and every one of her characters either capture your heart or make it cold as stone. They’re all so relatable, amazing and real. Not to mention, I would kill to have a relationship like Katy and Daemon – they are just brilliant and so in love it’s crazyEven Beth and Dawson & Archer and Dee have brilliant relationships – I want some of that! Their strength in each other, unconditional love and support, compatibility, taking the other a they are and loving all of them – every flaw and personality trait, physically, emotionally, mentally… It’s truly awe-inspiring.

The plot was brilliant, with great developments, unseen surprises, heart-renching discoveries, light-hearted moments and new friends. Opposition truly has nothing in it for me to criticise (except for a typo on page 308, but that’s beside the point). Well, that and the fact that I have to re-read Obsidian to find out what on Earth Daemon told Katy on the last page! Gee, thanks Jennifer. Thanks a lot.

Recommended to mid to late teens and older, the series finale of Lux is a truly worthwhile read that will whole-heartedly suck you in.

 

“I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I married you and burned down an entire city to keep you safe. I’ve killed for you. Did you think I’d forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world – in any world – would be stronger than my love for you?

“And we are trying to fix it,” General Eaton responded. “Unless you all have something we haven’t thought of, then there is no other option.”

“I don’t know.” I pressed my fingers to my temples. “We could really use the Avengers right about now.”

“Screw that. We need Loki,” Daemon retorted.

“You’d get jealous if she hugged a tree,” Archer tossed out.

“Maybe.” Daemon coasted to a stop in a parking space behind the car. “I’m needy like that.”

Taken out. Deal with. I was starting to sound like a mobster.

Or Luc.
