Review: Opal (Lux, #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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 of. 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.

Armentrout you are breaking my heart!  I can handle a cliffhanger, even a very stressful, anxiety inducing type deal, but this ending of her third installment in the Lux series just broke my heart and left me bereft.  Yep, I said bereft...because that's what I was.  This turned out to be a series that took me by complete surprise and left me reeling after each and every installment.  There was nothing else to do and no way to cure the feeling except to go and get the next installment.  And now with this third installment, the ending crushed me and I was forced to accept the fact that the next, and fourth installment in the series will not be out until July before I can get my next Lux fix!  So far I'm not handling this well at all.

As for what you can expect with this installment, be prepared for a ton of surprising twists and turns that will catch you off guard, and I'm not just talking about the ending.  Watch out for the emotional roller coaster that is the character Dawson.  He's quickly become a favorite of mine and I couldn't help but watch through the story's progression how he was trying to assimilate himself back into society, and how Katy turned out to be one of the only people he could really relate to.  And if you add in Dee's personality was downright painful to watch.  Its nearly impossible not to sympathize with her, while at the same time wanting to force her and Katy together so that things could go back to the way they were.

And without giving away too much for those who haven't read this title yet, I want to know more about Carissa...I wonder if that will happen, and Luke...please give us more Luke!  The description of this character were priceless and at times laugh out loud funny.  Blake is a different story.

Bottom line, pick up this series if you haven't already, and for those of you that have made your way through the first three installments, I feel your pain on having to withstand the wait and countdown we'll have to endure until we can get our hands on Origin.  It's going to be a LONG countdown for sure.

I gave Opal (Lux, #3) 4 shamrocks!!!!
