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 paced but when I was 30% in, story got very exciting and I could not stop reading. Opal contains two main topics, which are developed throughout the whole book. First one is depression after what happened and all dangerous problems that all characters had to face in this book. Second topic is love and relationship between Katy and Daemon which was very realistic and affectionate. It was all perfectly balanced and it only confirmed how excellent writer Jennifer L. Armentrout is.

One of the many things that I like the most about this series is the fact that even though this is YA genre, it all feels very mature because of the topics and problems characters are dealing with and the way they are dealing them with. I always loved dynamics between Katy and Daemon and now, when they added love and sexy times to it, their banter and interactions got even better. They really are one of my TOP favourite fictional couples. Daemon was still infuriating and his ego knows no boundaries and is super-huge, but we finally got to see his sensitive side too. He was just wonderful! If you haven't read Lux series yet, go and read in now!

And the ending!!! OMG, OMG, OMG... I did not know what to do, whether to scream or to cry... All I knew was that my heart was racing like crazy during last couple of pages. This was seriously one of the worst cliffhangers ever written!!!

My favourite quotes:
