MY REVIEW: [...]
Okay, the hardest thing about finding a new series that you love is reaching the last book and having to say goodbye. The last books of series are always the toughest to read. On one hand you want to speed through the book to find out what happens, on the other hand you want to read the book incredibly slow and savor the series before it ends. You get submersed in the world of the book and you don't want to leave. I've read series that I have loved but when it came down to the last book, it just disappointed me because my expectations were so high from reading the other books in that series. That really wasn't the case when it came to the Lux series. After reading the first book, Obsidian, I fell in love with the series. And after that, book after book in the Lux series, I loved. Opposition was the PERFECT ending to an absolutely phenomenal series!
In my Origin review, I said that it was hard for me to distinguish between Katy's and Daemon's POVs. This was not the case in this book. I'm not sure why but it was so easy for me to tell whose mind I was in. I was happy about that because I love the Lux series so much and I don't want any negative things to say about the series.
When Katy and Archer went to the store to get items for Beth, I just had this weird feeling that something bad would happen. When I was reading this section of the book, I was on the edge of my seat, waiting for something to happen. And when it finally did, I had to just keep reading and reading. I was so eager to find out what was going to happen, I read this book so quickly.
At the beginning of the book, it was hard for me to tell if Daemon really was on the Luxen's side or not. REALLY hard to tell. When we found out that he and Dawson had been faking their emotions, I felt like a weight was lifted off of my shoulders. Soon after, I realized the reason they were able to separate from the invading Luxen was that they had someone that they loved so much, it was able to free them from being controlled. After that my heart broke in two. Dee wasn't faking.
I hated Sadi from the moment we first met her. When we found out that she was an Origin and knew that Dawson and Daemon had been faking all along, I really hated her. I loved the scene when Katy attacked Sadi. You go girl!
I was biting my nails when Dee came and Katy had to fight her. I truly didn't know what would happen and that really terrified me.
I was shocked when Daemon and Katy learned that because of the Prometheus serum, one could die without killing the other. And I thought, why would Jennifer do that unless one of them dies? So I was basically a nervous wreck from that point on. When Daemon got injured and Kat was thinking about how much she loved him, I burst into tears. It was so upsetting! You really have to read the book to find out what I mean because it's hard to explain.
When Archer, Dee, Daemon, Dawson, and Kat went back to Petersburg, I really didn't want Kat to go, in fear of what happened to her mom. When Kat finds out that her mom had been assimilated, my heart broke for her.
At the end of the series, lots of characters died. Some were enemies and some were friends. But Daemon and Kat got their happy ending. So did Dawson and Beth, and Archer and Dee. Sadly, Luc didn't and we don't know exactly what happened to Nadia, but I am assuming she died.
I may have gotten some tears on the book when Dawson and Beth name their baby Ash and in the extended parts on Jennifer's website, when Daemon and Kat name their baby Adam.
It also shocked me that some Arum like Lore and Hunter weren't necessarily bad. Although lots of Arum still are. Lotho definitely freaked me out. I was intrigued with the idea of an Arum and a human. I read Obsession to learn more about Hunter and Serena. And wow. It really was a shocker.
The cover of Opposition annoys me because it doesn't match with the other books. But we will be getting Opposition in a new cover that does actually match the rest of the series. We will also be getting Shadows in paperback. These will come out in November.
