Review ~ Opposition (Lux #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout


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.

JLA did not disappoint. Opposition is a keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat, bite-your-nails-in-nervous-anticipation, throw-the-book-clear-across-the-room-in-impatience, read-it-in-one-seating-or-else kind of read. I cannot count the times I’ve wanted to peek in the end of the book just to know what freaking happened, but then the rising action of the book won’t let go of my attention even once.

I am still not fond of Kat and Daemon when they are together in this book, because everytime they have each other within touching distance (which is very often since they are never separated except in the start), the cheesiness is over the roof. I love reading romance, but I always cringe when it becomes overdone. Yeah, go figure. So Kat and Daemon still made me cringe a lot, but in Opposition I felt it less than in the previous two books.

I love the action that went down in this book, though in some parts (especially near the climax) I felt meh because it started becoming too convenient for the main characters. Still, it kept me entertained and happy (on most parts).

What I love the most in this book—and even in the whole series—is the secondary characters. I am a little disappointed that, again, I did not see more of Dee here. She’s a badass character but I feel like she didn’t get the chance to show it off. Luc is my favorite character, and I am so sad to see that he didn’t get the happy ending he wanted. Perhaps his happy ending will be with me. *winks* I also like Archer. He’s a badass in a cool, quiet way. I like it when he and Daemon are in the same room. Oh, how they amuse me.

You know that feeling when you badly want to take a sneak peek but you cannot take your eyes off the page you’re reading? Yeah, that’s what I’m like when I was reading this book. It made me smile, scream in frustration, smile again, and feel somewhat sad when I finally closed the book. I’m done with the Luxen world, and no matter how many times I re-read it, it just won’t be the same.
