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 t...more

The cover that keeps getting added for Opal is NOT the cover....
Jana (The Book Goddess)


Sigh. Guys, I decided not to do one of my 'normal' reviews and instead do a '20 reasons why' thingy. I just LOVE this book so much, I can't even write a proper review.


So here's 20 reasons why you should read OPAL: (not that you need a reason :P

1. I’m gonna say this again and again and AGAIN. Jennifer L. Armentrout is one hell of a writer. There’s no secret that she’s my all time favourite author ever (well duh. Have you read my 2012 End of Year Book Survey and noticed how half of the answers we...more
Rebecca ♥ Aaron Warner, Magnus Damora ♥
I liked this about the same as Onyx. It had more romance, and an even sweeter and more dreamy Daemon, but less action. So it evens out in the end. The only action was the two escape attempts, which dont add up to many pages.

But I really appreciate all the romance, and the focus on Katy and Daemon's bond. The reaffirmation of their relationship. We need that assurance that they can get through what faces them next. I am still a bit worried about their fate, but not sad. All the fuss over the endi...more

I swear to God if the release date gets shoved into the new year for this book, I will not be responsible for my actions!!!

Let's just say Hell hath no fury like a woman whose release date gets pushed because of stupid publishing companies.

*********UPDATED REVIEW*********

OK, so anyone who's anyone knows exactly what a die-hard Lux fan I am. So when this released EARLY I was ecstatic.

I’m talking Cloud 397. Rainbows and unicorns, walking on sunshine and moonshine AT THE SAME FREAKING TIME ecstati...more

OMG! OMG! OMG! I really THOUGHT I was prepared for this book's cliffhanger ending. I was wrong. I was so, so wrong. I was NOT prepared for this story's ending. Not at all!!! I'm devastated and anxious and want to read Origin right now! Plus, (view spoiler). I should have waited until Opal was released before starting this book. Oh boy, I HAT...more

Noooooo!!! I hate how the book ended!! WHYYYYYY?????

In the beginning , this book was simply awesome ! I was having such a good time with Deamon and his crazy ego !

“A slow, wry smile teased Daemon’s lips. "Simmer down, Kitten, before I have to get you a ball of yarn to play with."

Annoyance flared deep inside me. "Don’t start with me, jerk-face.”

Well, the most annoying person in this book was Blake(aka Biff, Bob ,Flake etc) and I really HATE HIM!

I will not lose my mind.
I will not lose my mind.
I will not lose my mind.
I will survive the pain caused by Opal.
I'm strong. I will be stronger.

This will be my mantra until the release of Origin. I will repeat these sentences every day. It's all I can do even if I have a feeling this will not be enough.

In Opal there's all I ever wanted for Daemon and Katy and more. So much more.
I tought I have really known Daemon in Onyx but he is full of surpraises. Prepare yourself for a romantic Daem...more

To say that I enjoy this series (or anything Jennifer L. Armentrout writes, for that matter) is an understatement. There is something about her writing that is reminiscent of ice-cream. I know I could do better elsewhere, find something more stimulating and thought-provoking elsewhere, but I don’t give a flying fish and never want to stop. Let’s call it an addiction.

With Opal we have ups and down, but for the vast majority of the novel, it is one big up. This book is everything I enjoyed about t...more

I am so mad right now.... I just can't.. I can't articulate...


YES the book was good.

Eeep! Loved it!!!

3.5 stars Were you expecting something else for this series? If I themed books 1 & 2 like this, I might as well continue the trend. I'll start off in the right order this time with Good Cop.

Good Cop!

1. Daemon. Enough said.

2. Action Sequences. Some of what I'd asked for in the first couple of books was brought to the table with Opal. We're dealing with aliens and the baddies out to get them. As much as I love the sexual tension in these books, if that's all there is, then the entire point of...more

Oh. My. God! Holy! Alien! Babies! Everywhere! There are just no words. I am speechless. I said Obsidian was amazing, I said Onyx was phenomenal... Opal is EPIC! I am seriously at a loss for words... it was THAT good.

Katy and Daemon are finally together... but the world just isn't done with them yet. Reeling from the death of a close friend and the rediscovery of another things are never going to be the same. When danger strikes again Katy and Daemon must team up with a familiar face. But when e...more

SPOILER FREE REVIEW
I have never been so excited about any book as I had been about Opal. Since Lux series are my absolutely most favourite YA paranormal series, I just could not wait to read it. And I am glad to say than Jennifer L. Armentrout did not disappoint. Moreover, I finally found my perfect version of Daemon and I need to share it with you:


Opal starts exactly where previous book ended. Luxens are shaken after all that happened and no one is the same as before. Beginning was kind of slow...more

FINAL RATING: ★★★★/★★★★★

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




I am officially addicted to the Luxen race ... Like... It's like a drug, an effect, i don't know! And all i can think now is that i can't wait to see in which direction this story will go . Because, after everything, it never lost it's humor or action or awesomeness.

Mitch is never going to let me live this down, but I am DEVASTATED because I just did not like this book as much as the first two.

Let's face it, Obsidian was SO great because of one thing, and one thing only - Daemon Black. And I was one of Armentrout's biggest fans, on a campaign to get all of my friends to read the book and see the light. And in Onyx, Daemon wasn't quite as swoon-worthy, and Katy was an annoying whiny brat, but I thought the storyline was much more developed. Sadly, Opal lacke...more

4.5 Stars

Opal was all kinds of AWESOME until I clicked the last page and was left off on the WORST CLIFFHANGER EVER! Ahhhhhh!!!!!! A plaque must be made saying Jennifer L. Armentrout is the Queen of Cliffhangers! Seriously, first Deity and now this?!! You’re killing me Jennifer. Even with a cliffhanger I could easily get violent over, I’m still 100% addicted to this series. I LOVE it! There wasn’t a dull moment.

I’m not going to summarize Opal, because I’m sure most of you have read many, many r...more

If you have not read the books prior to Opal, then I suggest you don't read this review as it may contain a few spoilers. And honestly, if you have not read this series yet, you are seriously missing out on a fantastic series! I usually don't read YA books very often, but I can never seem to get enough of the Lux series!
