Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: Opposition
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series: Lux
Publisher: EntangledTeen
Release: August 5, 2014
Review: Five Stars

Characters: Katy, Daemon, Beth, Dawson, Luc, Archer, Dee

I love these characters! I relate to Katy so well. Book bloggers for the win! Daemon is so swoon-worthy, I can't even. Beth and Dawson are fairly minor characters, but their predicaments still affect the plot. Also, ADORABLE BABY! I have endless swoons for Archer too. As you might have seen in my review for the previous book. Luc is pretty cool too. He knows so many secrets that the reader finds out bit by bit. I haven't liked Dee after about book three. She finally comes around a bit in this book, and her character is solid by the end. That said, as far as Katy and Daemon go, there was WAY too much sex. I don't mind some, but it gets to a point where enough is enough.

First Impressions: 5/5

I really love Jennifer L. Armentrout. The book starts crazy weird. I won't say why due to spoilers, but crazy weird. People are dying, things are exploding (EXPLOSIONS), etc. Everything a reader loves.

Writing: 4/5 Though Jennifer L. Armentrout's writing has definitely improved, it still leaves some to be desired, which I'm sure will all improve in time.
Plot: 4/5 The plot feels a little disjointed, since the major problem was introduced at the end of the previous book. She dealt with it well though, and managed to get everything done in the minimum amount of time, while still adding humor and romance.
World Building: 4/5 The author didn't have to do too much world building. Most of it was done in the previous four books. I would have liked to know a little more about the background of the bad guys though.
Characters: 4/5 The character development was good, and the only thing really to be desired was the amount of sex.

Overall, this was a really solid conclusion to a wonderful series. I can't wait to read more of Jennifer's books!

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.
