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

5 STARS and believe me I would rate in more if I could.

First of all I can't describe how GREAT this series is.Mind blowing.It has everything. Action ,romance ,fun ,jokes ,tense moments,everything.The characters fit with the story perfectly.Also the story never gets boring.The chemistry between characters... amazing!

Okay according to JLA:

This is one of those epically awesome series. There is just no other way to describe it. When I first picked up Obsidian, I had no idea what to expect. I read paranormal ya every now and then, but it’s not my genre of choice. Still, I gave it a go. I was hooked. I loved everything about Daemon and Katy. All 5 of these books were captivating and hilarious reads full of action, humor, suspense and love.

wow. i cant believe this is over. just wow. if you had told me a week or so ago that i would enjoy obsess over a series about an alien boy and a human girl, i would have called you crazy. but this series is soooo much more than that.

and so, at the end of 11 days, 5 books, and 1 entertaining story, i have two things on my mind:

1. where in the world (or any other worlds, for that matter) can i get myself a daemon black?! because i need one. hes such a babe and im so in love. and,

“I'm game for anything with you, Daemon Black.”

That's it.The series that made me put aside my truest love after books (that would be sleep),that occupied my every thought for a week,that made me an antisocial madwoman mumbling about aliens,is over.Kat and Daemon's story is over.

“It didn't matter how many hours,days,months,or years we had stretched out in front of us;we'd always be together.This kind of love was the real deal,stronger than a whole planet full of psycho aliens

Back in the day, I had this plan for the off chance that I was around for the whole end-of-the-world thing. It involved climbing up on my roof and blasting R.E.M.'s "It's the End of the World as We Know it (And I Feel Fine)" as loud as humanly possible, but real life rarely turns out that cool.

It was happening-everything about the world as we knew it was ending, and it sure as hell did not feel fine. Or Cool.

I can't think of the last time a book had me sitting on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, and holding my breath. Opposition captivated and enthralled me from the first heart-pounding page to the last. I LOVED IT!

I am so sad to see this series eqnd. I have LOVED watching Katy's and Daemon's characters grow and mature over the course of the books.

Katy began this series as a lovable and strong character who was obstinate, and sometimes even pigheade
As a thank you for the Lux Series reaching the USA Today Bestsellers List, JLA has rewarded us with a glimpse of Kat and Daemon's future that takes place a few years after Opposition. YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS! SQUEEEEE!

I helped save the planet in this book so… you’re welcome. It was my pleasure to save all of mankind alongside one of my absolute favorite book couples, Daemon Black and Katy Swartz.

"They're up to something big. "Obviously." I smiled faintly. "The whole invading-Earth part kind of gave that away."


I never thought I would fall as hard as I did for these characters when I gave the first book of this series a chance. I mean a book about aliens in high school? But it happened and I loved every pag
Once again conclusion to series (that I love) written by JLA did not satisfy me. Was it because I outgrew this series? Was it the lack of essential "something" that was present in previous instalments but not in this one? Or was it the fact that both POVs merged in and I found myself confused numerous times about whose POVs I was reading? I think it was mixture of all three things. I enjoyed banters (it is Daemon after all) but overall I didn't like this book because it didn't reached the level ...more

Katy does NOT feel fine.

Or this is what Katy thinks.

I FINALLY finished this series! While I didn't enjoy this last book at all compared to the first one in the series, I will always love Katy and Daemon as characters. This series could been much more effective as a trilogy and I love/hate all the Twilight parallels (I really can't decide if they are genius or obnoxious). I think the story got too big for the world ultimately but I am glad I stuck with it and finished it. Jennifer's writing is addictive and hilarious as always and I'm excited to v ...more

'OPPOSITION' is the fifth and final book in Jennifer L. Armentrout's 'Lux' series. It picks up where the previous book left off.

What a bittersweet feeling when I closed out of that last page. I was happy with the ending, all my favourite characters survived but I was sad that I had to say goodbye. I feel like they are a part of me, I've been reading this series back to back loving every single moment of it. The heartache, the losses, the love, the angst, the tears, so many feels, so many tim

I’m bawling my eyes right at this very moment, because this series is over and lemme just tell you that it ended PERFECTLY. Opposition is absolutely top-notch fangirling material, set to conclude one of the most addictive stories by raising the bar on sexiness, action, heartbreak and pure, unloaded fun. It was everything I could’ve hoped for and then some – I completely loved it.

Opposition was bittersweet for me, it's the final book in the Lux series. The world is in chaos, between fighting invading aliens and secret government agencies - is there a light at the end of the tunnel for Daemon and Katy?

I knew in that tiny second as we stared each other down that this was the beginning and this was also the end. The Luxen were truly invading.

I read this one via an audio book. I bought the audio so I could listen to it while I worked out. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate and I had to shelf the audio until the weather improved a little.


Since I spread out my listening over a long period of time I will refrain from rehashing the plot. I will say that I'm glad I got to experience this paranormal and I'll miss our crazy little book blogger who had an alien neighborhood. Hard to believe I started this journey with the Lux serie

“Kat whipped toward me, her eyes glowing from within. In that moment, she looked like a goddess—a goddess of vengeance.

[Daemon's thoughts:] If we weren’t in the middle of a fight, I’d have you up against a tree right now.”

If I had to compare this finale to food, it would be porridge. It's satisfying, fills your stomach and you can even mix in honey or raisins to sweeten it. But you wouldn't ask for seconds. Not to mention three very angry bears that would be on you faster than you

What a thrilling and wonderful conclusion to this series! Although I still think Origin is my favorite book in the series overall, this is a close second.

THE ROMANCE continues to be super swoon-worthy (although still not as explicit as I would like). Daemon has definitely turned over a new leaf and is way more compassionate and kind than he was in the first half of the series. I definitely liked this version of Daemon the best ❤️

AMAZING. AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! AH-MAY-ZING! I’m biased (just to let you know) when I say that this book was a fantastic end to a wonderful series! I’ve been a huge Lux fan since book 1 (as well as an Armentrout fan overall) and still am so it’s no surprised that I found this book absolutely wonderful. Like Ms. Armentrout, I too find it bittersweet to see this series end. I’ll keep this review brief-ish since I’m never really good at writing reviews for the last book in a series.

Opposition is book number five in the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. How in the world do I ever do this book or this series justice in a review? I have loved this series from page one of book one. It’s a wonder my heart survived all the action scenes and will any other book couple ever be able to compete with Daemon and Katy? No, I don’t think so. Even though I am saddened to say goodbye to these characters, JLA did a fantastic job in this series conclusion.

“I wasn’t the same girl

In this last installment of the LUX series we finally have what we’ve been waiting for since book 1: the war between luxen, arums and humans. And the previous book only left us with questions.
Who are the bad guys after all? Who is trying to ruin mankind? Or is mankind trying to rule all the others species?
If you are a fan of these books sit down and get ready for an amazing reading and ending. If you haven’t read this books because you believe

OMG I don't even know where to start. I put off reading this for a week. I wasn't ready for the end. I knew it would break my heart to say goodbye. I fell so hard for this series. And it was a long year to get to this beautiful ending. Thank you Ms Armentrout. Thank you for giving this story life. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself for our simple entertainment. Reading saves all of us in different ways. This series saved me last year when I was in a bad place. It brought me out of a hole. ...more

I'm so glad I'm finally done with the Lux series, it was painful but I managed to make it to the end. I didn't have high expectations for Opposition, I knew the MC's would be as insipid and frustrating as ever and it was pretty obvious how things would work out. But I have to admit that I enjoyed Opposition more than I thought I would, it was still rather rubbish but unlike most other JLA books it had the odd moment of being entertaining.

The final book to the Lux series. Between saving the planet and fighting alien invasions, would the couple get their happy ending?

I couldn't stop swooning over Daemon and Katy was so badass in this book. I enjoyed it but as much as I love Daemon I felt my attention wander off around the middle. Also, there was sooo much action throughout the book that when it got to the end I kind of had a 'that's it?!' moment.

I adore this series. I love how much Katy and Daemon have grown and how the
