Opposition (Lux #5), by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

Opposition________________________________________________________

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.

“Did you ever think this is where you’d end up when you knocked on my door asking for directions?”

It’s the part in a serie that I love and hate at the same time: the last book. *sniff*. I’m having an epic book hangover after finishing this book.

I love it because duh, we get to have all the answers to our questions and to have “closure” with the characters that we came to love and sometimes hate throughout the book. But I hate it too because as I read the book, I realize the closer I get to turning the last page, that it’s the last time I’ll read something about my dear characters! So that’s basically what happened to me while I read Opposition. I loved every minute of it but it broke my heart to reach the end of Daemon and Katy’s journey because I never wanted to let them go.

“This kind of love was the real deal, stronger than a whole planet full of psycho aliens and an entire government.”

One thing’s for sure though, when I started this serie, I never thought for a minute that what seemed to be a regular paranormal YA romance would turn out to be something this epic, that consumed, captivated and enthralled me so much. Jennifer L. Armentrout has written a masterpiece as far as I’m concerned with the Lux serie and she effectively blew my mind with every Lux book she wrote. I’m still amazed by the quality of the story and how captivating it was. This book is intense but in the best way possible and I was always asking for more!

“Did you think I’d forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world — in any world — would be stronger than my love for you?”

Like for my review of Origin, I won’t say much about what happens in this book because it would take all the fun out of reading it. But prepare yourself my Lovelies because like Origin, this book is amazing and will blow your mind! It is fast-paced, filled with action, suspense and twits that will make your mind go crazy. I bit my nails with worry for Daemon, Katy and their friends and family, my heart broke at what both Daemon and Katy had to face and go through to survive and my heart also raced with how deep their love for each other runs and what they would do in order to protect each other and the people they love.

“Sometimes — and it happened at random moments — I was blown away by the fact that she was mine and I was hers.”

Jennifer also made my day with the epilogue she gave her characters. I was so happy to glimpse at what had become of them after everything that happened in the book is over. I loved how she kept it “real” and not too….peachy, considering there sort of was an alien apocalypse going on before that. I am so sad to see this serie end because I loved watching Daemon and Katy grow and evolve throughout the books, and I loved witnessing their love for each other grow and mature too as the story went.

“Your inner book nerd will have a book nerd orgasm.”

Katy is the best heroine I have read about in a YA book so far. I loved her character from the start and as she changed and became the woman she is by the end of the serie I loved her even more because she stayed true to herself and also became a stronger, more resilient and courageous version of herself. She was loving and caring all along and showed a lot of heart, forgiveness and selflessness throughout the story.

“He was mine, all of him — the prickly side and the warm, playful, and loving side.”

Daemon was a perfect match to her character. He challenged Katy but also loved her just the right way. I liked his prickly side, his arrogant, sarcastic and infuriating streak and loved to get to see more of his charming, caring and protective side as the story went. His love for Katy and his friends and family was amazing to witness and his dedication to Katy made my heart swell. No, he is not the same arrogant, stubborn and sometimes rude boy who first treated Katy so terribly, but he’s grown into someone a little wiser, even more loyal to the people he cares about and who would do anything for the one he loves.

You’re perfect for me.”

I am soooooo grateful to Alienor, who introduced me to this serie. Without her, I would’ve missed out of this amazingly epic YA read and that would have been such a shame! I can’t recommend enough you ALL READ THIS SERIE! It has more in store than what it hints at. I can honestly say that I LOVED EVERY SINGLE MINUTE I spent reading Daemon and Katy’s (and the other characters’) story. I loved this serie wholeheartedly. I’ll remember it for a very long time. I’ll keep it close to my heart and that makes it hugely bittersweet to say goodbye because of it.

“We had a week, a month, and a year from now. We finally had a future and many more moments like this.”

Also, to thank the readers for helping Opposition hit the USA Today Bestseller’s list at #34 and putting the Lux Series in the New York Times YA Series list at #4, (and because she is such an awesome author) Jennifer Armentrout gave us a little taste of Daemon and Katy’s life a few years after Opposition. *happy-dance* ⇒ http://www.jenniferarmentrout.com/a-special-thank-you/
