Opal (Lux #3), by Jennifer L. Armentrout



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.


 OH. MY.GOSH!!!!!! Is she serious with this ending?!?! How can you write an ending like this one and not want to make your readers go crazy? I was told Opal ended on a cliffhanger but boy, this was the mother of all cliffhangers! I’m serious people, when you read this book, prepare yourself for some serious mind fuck! I might have screamed at the end. I could not believe this was really happening. And my emotions were all over the freaking place! Man, this book was intense!

A lot of things happen in this book. It might seem like something obvious but it’s hard to tell about this book as the story goes because with each chapter, we get deeper and deeper into the story and there is always new stuff happening and new secrets and at some point, unless I start giving spoilers about the story, well I’ll have to cut it on the details.

“I have the feeling we just made a deal with the devil, and he’s going to come back and want our first-born child or something.”
Daemon waggled his brows. “You want kids? Because you know, practice makes–”
“Shut up.” I shook my head and started walking.”

But this serie is awesome and the plot is getting better an better as you read it. Opal felt a little bit like Onyx when it comes to the atmosphere of the story. It as the same darker vide. Daemon and Katy have to do things they really don’t want to do in order to help someone, they have to put their trust in people who betrayed them before and a whole lot of other stuff that kept me one the edge of my seat for a good part of the book. I would have gone crazy had I been in their shoes!

“You really shouldn’t trust a soul in this game. Not when everyone has something to gain or lose.”

You know that nasty nasty feeling that you have when you read a book, and you know what’s about to happen is super important and you root for the characters, wishing they didn’t have to go through what they are about to do, that everything is going to be alright, and all the while, your heart won’t stop beating like crazy and you have this nagging voice in your head screaming at you that you are just fooling yourself and that shit is about to hit the fan real hard? Well, that what will happen when you’ll get at to the end of Opal. I was biting my nails off I was so stressed!

“He…he kisses like he’s dying of thirst, and I’m water.” I smacked my hands over my hot face. “I can’t believe I just said that out loud.”
Lesa giggled. “Sounds like one of those romance books you read.”
“It does.” I started giggling. “But, oh Lordie Lord, it’s true. I’m like a puddle of mush when he kisses me. It’s embarrassing. I’m so, like, ‘Thank you, can I have another?’ Sad.”

But thank God, we had time to enjoy Daemon and Katy too. It was so good to see them together. I love their relationship and Daemon is getting better and better with every book. For all the shit he gave Katy in Obsidian, he certainly makes up for it now. Their relationship, even though very intense with all the plotting and fighting for their lives and everything, is very sweet and often hilarious, mainly because of Daemon and his oversized ego we can’t help but love. The two made me laugh a lot once again and it was a good thing with all the serious stuff that happen in this book.

“Infuriated, I scrambled over him, even more furious when I saw the humored glint in his eyes. “God you tick me off.”
“Well at least I got you–“
“Don’t even finish that statement!”

One thing that broke my heart though was what happens to Dee and Katy’s friendship after what happened in Onyx. It became even hard to read some of the scenes in the book because I loved Dee and Katy’s relationship and in Opal, their friendship is really strained. And even though we get why things have become that way, it was still hard to read those moments.

And one thing is for sure, if you didn’t like Blake before, Opal will make you hate him. I was so on team Daemon and I very much enjoyed Daemon’s antics about Blake. Oh how I wanted to hit his face. I don’t really get why no one actually did, every chance they got but that’s just details. But seriously, some of the things he did in this book, they creeped me out on an epic level. I was actually scrunching my face in disgust as I read. I almost took a shower and I don’t get how Katy didn’t when she found out! But I’m sure Blake has something coming his way. He cannot go on living without something major happening to him after all the shit he has done.

“Dawson shifted, dropping his head into his hand. “Do you ever stop talking?”
“When I’m sleeping,” Blake replied.
“And when you’re dead,” Daemon threw back. “You’ll stop talking when you’re dead.”
Blake’s lips thinned. “Point taken.”

I’ll keep it short for this one because my mind is a little all over the place right now and I need to start Origin ASAP if I don’t want to go crazy after an ending like the one I just read! And you’ll get why with this quote:

“I love you, Katy. Always have. Always will,” he said, voice thick and hoarse with panic. “I will come back for you. I will-” The emergency doors sealed shut with a soft thud. “I love you,” I said, but Daemon…Daemon was gone.”
