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.”

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?
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Everything pretty much picks up from where the last book ended and I just couldn't get enough of Katy and Daemon being so freaking amazing towards each other with how hot and cold things have been between them in the first two books I was waiting for them to just go cold on each other again but there relationship has really grown and it's so damn adorable the way they are with each other now.
Anyways I freaking hate Blake that ass! I can't believe it! I mean I never trusted him to begin with when he appeared again but wtf! Also I was really rooting for Katy and Dee as well I mean I'm not going to lie I hated how Dee was being towards Katy for majority of the book but at the same time I felt so bad for her heck for both of them since under it all you could tell they were miserable without each others friendship.
Oh yea and be ready for one hell of a cliffhanger I mean it's pretty damn epic and I was pissed I didn't have the next book on my shelf so I can see what happens needless to say it's coming in the mail this week sometime
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.Read more ›
