"I loved Opal from page to shining page! An engrossing, sexy, nail-biter! I'm delighted to join the Daemon Invasion," - Nancy Holder, NYT Bestselling Author, Wicked


Praise for Obsidian, book one in the Lux series:

"The beginning of Armentrout's new Lux series is a thrilling ride from start to finish. A cross between Roswell and Dawson's Creek, this series is guaranteed to hold your attention and have you begging for more."
Romance Times "Top Pick"

“Daemon and Katy are combustible…Obsidian is an action packed ride that will leave you breathless and begging for more.”
— Jus Accardo, author of TOUCH

“Powerful. Addicting. Obsidian left me breathless [and] blew me away. I never in my wildest dreams ever thought I would or could fall head-over-heals in love with a story with aliens. Wipe away everything you have ever thought about aliens from your mind. Obsidian sets a new standard.”
Winter Haven Books

I love the relationship between Katy and Daemon.

How do I even begin to tell you how much I loved this book?! I was pretty sure I was going to love this because I totally loved the first two, but I had no idea this would be as amazingly awesome as it was!! Jennifer L. Armentrout sure has a way of blowing my expectations away with each new book of hers I read. Each book in this series has gotten better for me and I don't know how she can top this one, but I know she will. Now that I have gotten my fan girl stuff out of the way, I will continue. I have become very invested in the story and after the way Onyx ended I was super excited to read this one. The stakes are higher, the romance is hotter, and the tension is incredible!! In other words, this book rocked!! Being that this is the third book in the series, it's a bit harder to review, but I will do my best.

Katy really steps it up in this one. I admire how tough she is and what she is willing to do. She has been through a lot, too much really, but she holds it together really well. She has a lot of guilt too and that is a lot of the reason why she feels like she needs to do certain things that are insanely dangerous. She has a few moments where she really breaks down, but I think she has become such a strong person. She lets her anger get the best of her sometimes, but she is still the same fun and snarky girl underneath the harder shell she now wears.

I thought I couldn't love Daemon any more than I already did and boy was I wrong. Yes, he still has an ego, and he still has his moments of jerkiness, but the jerk stuff comes out with his protective side. Mostly we see a super sweet and caring Daemon, and yes, even very romantic! I was swooning all over the place while reading Opal.

**SPOLIERS FOR ONYX**

Wow-wee! Another wonderful book by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Opal is the third book of the Lux series, and the plot doesn't disappoint fans.

The last book ended with Dawson - Daemons twin brother - coming back from the dead. Opal revolves around Beth - Dawsons lover - and getting her back from the DOD who is holding her captive. Blake makes another entrance in this book and tries to help. Question is, should they trust him after his last betrayal?

Pros:
Holy romance, Batman! Katy and Daemons relationship still goes strong. The love they have is remarkable, and you can see how far Armentrout takes the relationship. In the first book Katy and Daemon (well... not so much Daemon) despised one another, but by this book you'll see the remarkable change. Both of them grow as a person because of each other. Katy - as she states in this book - has changed since Obsidian. She becomes a darker version of herself, not as happy-go-lucky. She's been through a lot these past books, and it's finally taking a toll on her. Daemon is still a cute, lovable, cocky guy, and Katy is kick-ass and a strong lead. Nothing gets past her. She's not someone that stays in the shadows. It's admirable how hard working and determined she becomes in order to fight with everyone else. Katy strives to be a better person, which is a trait I love!

There's a prequel called Shadows that revolve around Dawson and his love interest Bethany. I haven't read that book yet, but I've heard that he's very friendly, outgoing, and has fun humor. He's not the same person as Shadows in Opal. Since I have nothing to compare him to, it's hard to say what details are different. Dawson is shown as introverted and emotionally broken.

First things first. (stands up and starts to clap... doesn't stop for a long while) Jennifer Armentrout that is for you. You are simply amazing. There is no doubt that you have very quickly and very deservedly become one of my favorite authors. I have said this before and I will say it a thousand more times to anybody who will listen. I would happily read the phone book if you were the one writing it. Your talent continues to amaze me with each new book... may you never retire!

Now, with my major author obsessed fangirl moment out of the way I shall continue with my review of Opal. (reverts back into fangirl mode, man that was quick) Holy crap this book was completely awesome. I had originally booked December 11th off from work so that I could be at home to read it the day of release. Imagine my surprise when on December 3rd night I get an eMail from Amazon saying it has been released early and that it would be wirelessly sent to my Kindle... like right that moment. I went insane and my husband now knows how crazy I actually am. Darn it. I thought I was doing such a good job at hiding my crazy.

We shall get the series warning out of the way now. I do my best not to post spoilers but there may and probably will be spoilers from earlier books in the series so proceed at your own risk.

Kat has grown up so much over this series and I really feel she has come into her own in this book. Her thought process shows a lot of maturity and thinking about it now I really can't think of a moment where I didn't understand or agree with a decision she was making. Well maybe her jealousy toward Ash was a little annoying... I mean yeah Daemon and Ash used to date but it would take a fool to think he was interested in anybody but Kat. I love how she interacts with Dawson.
