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

I guess waiting until the 3rd book was worth it to love and cherish it so much. I guess disliking the first 2 and not really wanting to buy the rest, only now wanting to read the rest was worth it. I mean, JLA has done such a great job with all this. There's improvement in every book and there's improvement in everything—characters, plot, romance. I find it surprising that I rated this a 5 but, honestly, it deserves it. And I know that quote is the

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

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.

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.”

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

Eeep! Loved it!!!

Opal is the third book from the Lux series and by far the most complex in plot and characters.
From all the books from this series, this one was the most intense from my POV. It literally drags you through all the stages of feeling, like anger, grief, surprize, horror, love, sadness and SHOCK. Yap.. a lot to assimilate in just 250 pages.

Katy and Daemon are finally together! Yes, our favorite couple is hot, daring and feels like it can face the world. Of course their happiness will be darkened by

Armentrout does not disappoint. Ever. This book had to be my favorite in the series. I'm still reeling from the ending of this book. IT WAS SO GOOD!!!

Deep breaths, deep breaths...Okay I'm almost not better.

The Plot

So, Katy and Daemon have gone through a lot together. Realizing that Daemon and his group of friends are glowworms (their words, not mine), fighting Arums (evil angels), and now the DOD, Daedalus, and other hybrids. Also through in Blake who has returned. No one likes him and Kat

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.

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

I am so relieved that I do not have to wait for the next book. There is no way my heart could stand it.

My emotions are all over the place right now. I know this is a YA series and they are all teenagers in high school but there is just so much going on that I do not even feel like I am reading YA.

I will do a full review when I finish the last book.

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
