REVIEW: Opposition (Lux, #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
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.
This book is extremely bittersweet. I've loved this series since day one and while I'm glad that it's not being drawn out the way others have been, I'm also sad that it's ending. No amount of time seems to be enough when you have Daemon. To this day, he's one of my favorite book boyfriends. And that's saying something since I'm not typically a fan of aliens.
I wasn't able to put this book down. I read it in one sitting. That actually goes for all the books. Jennifer L. Armentrout is wickedly talented.
I still loved Daemon and Katy. They're such a great couple and such a great team. They'll definitely be a couple I'll revisit in the future.
I have to say that I really loved Archer. If he wasn't hooked up with Dee at the end, I would really love to see more of him. And I loved his friendship with Katy.
This whole series, I loved Dee. There were certain events that made me not care for her at times (Adam anyone?) but I got it. She was mourning and blaming the world and taking it out on Katy. However, Dee pushed me to my breaking point with her in this book. She went to the dark side and with the way she treated Katy, I was done. I didn't care what happened to her and frankly, she was unredeemable to me.
I don't know the author's plans, but I wouldn't be opposed to a spin-off series surrounding the Orgins.
I really am sad that this series is over. Part of me wishes it would go on forever so there would always be the promise of more Daemon & Kat moments.
Oh, and don't miss the special treat that Jennifer L. Armentrout posted on her blog as a thank you to fans for the Lux series hitting the New York Times best sellers list.
