Jennifer L Armentrout – Opposition

Author: Jennifer L Armentrout
Series: Lux
Release Date: August 5, 2014

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 betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

Happy Easter! And also, Happy I-finally-finished-this-series to me! It only took me a month and a half… (with some books in between.) It’s not that I didn’t like this series, but moreso that I had to be in a certain mood to read and enjoy the books. A romantic-alien kinda mood.

The ending of the book was super anti-climatic to me.

The final battle?

More like, what battle.

The romance?

Summed up in one sentence: “And we all lived happily ever after.”

If I weren’t in the mood for this kind of (as my Euro teacher would say) “happy, happy, joy, joy” book, then I would have definitely had more complaints. However, due to the fact that I just wanted to read something sweet and implausible in my otherwise stressful and aggravating life, this book fit.

So I guess that’s how people should take it, as a fluffy book for good moods and unicorns shitting rainbows.

There is honestly no heartbreak in the series, and yeah the characters were (if not unrealistic) super cute. Their interactions (albeit too nice in my opinion) and relationships gave you smiles all over. But still, decent writing and happy (but weird) story coupled with cute characters make an overall enjoyable book for people who aren’t looking for a committed relationship with a story.

I’m so glad I’m done with this series.

Rating: 3.5/5
