Review - Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 Opal (Lux, #3)

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 of. 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’re stronger... and they know it.

In the third book in the Lux series, Katy and Daemon have finally admitted their feelings for each other, but they also have to deal with the devastating aftermath of the end of Onyx  - betrayals, the death of a friend and the return of someone unexpected. Now they have to find a way to save the other victims of the secret organisation’s testing programme, without getting captured again themselves. The plot was a little slower in this one, but there’s still enough romance, action and character development to keep us turning the pages. And there’s plenty of jaw-dropping plot twists and betrayals!

Katy in particular gets some great character development and we really get to see how her experiences have changed her. Her powers are now pretty badass, and even though she and Daemon are head over heels in love, she remains intelligent, independent and strong-willed. Daemon is as sweet as he can be infuriating, and there are some hilarious one-liners in their interactions as usual. Props to Jennifer L .Armentrout for writing one of the most entertaining couples in YA fiction!

I loved this book just as much as the others, and I have a feeling this series is building up to an epic conclusion, if the killer cliffhanger ending is anything to go by!

  1. Opal was definitely my favorite of the series so far. I haven't read Origin yet, though!
