Book #3 in LUX Series

No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well… There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

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. 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.

Spoilers ahead!


Foul Language Young Adult Exciting

Some Steaminess Romance Feel Good

Opal is the third book in the Lux series, and is just as thrilling as that last two books. One of the best parts of this book is that Kat and Daemon are finally together, but lucky for us, it doesn't change the dynamic between them too much. They still bicker constantly, which is fun to read. The only difference now, is there is more sweet and tender, and to be honest, hot, moments between them.

Kat is dealing with the consequences of putting her trust into Blake, and hiding her mutation from Dee. She feels a lot of guilt. What is a horrible situation for her, leads to her character growing. She finally gets that she is forever changed, and normal isn't possible anymore. She learns that trust needs to be earned, and not just given. She grows into a pretty kick ass girl, who stands up for herself, and those she loves.

Daemon made me fall for him even more in this book. Yes, I am that girl. The girl who doesn't crush on celebrities, but book characters.

I can't be the only one, right?

He has grown a lot since Obsidian as well. It's obvious he is head over heels for Kat, even if he waits till its too late to actually say it (we will get to that soon). Obvious. Kat doesn't even need him to say it. She knows. While his and Katy's relationship grows stronger, he is also trying to help his brother Dawson, who is traumatized from his time with Daedalus, and wanting to rescue his girlfriend Beth. It is hinted that they may have not been getting along before Dawson and Beth were taken (Daemon being VERY against his brother dating a human). Kat obviously brought these two brothers to an understanding. She promised Dawson they would help him
