Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.

After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.

All Katy can do is survive.

Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?

Together, they can face anything.

But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on?

And will they even be together?



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Things went from bad to craptastic in a matter of seconds.



I am on a Lux high after reading this installment. From the very first page this book took off at the speed of Daemon in his natural form. 

The story line glowed as bright as the Luxen in their alien form.

I didn’t want this book to end.

It was told from both Katy and Daemon’s pov’s and I LIKED IT! I loved being in Daemon’s head.


The pages turned.


The sub characters were brilliant.

The smexi scenes... well, let’s just say, Jennifer turned up the heat.

My gaze fell to the box and then went back to him. “Confident, aren’t you?”

“I’d like to call it being prepared for any occasion.”


Rawrrrrr!!!

I laughed.


Why in the world did humans think aliens looked like a whacked-out Gumby?

I felt sad.

In my review for Opal I said how Daemon wouldn’t have sat back like Dawson was made to in Opal. Patience is a virtue and all that rubbish.

I was right!

Daemon was not going to let ANYTHING stand in his way of getting to Katy.

NO SIR!

He has laid his cards on the table and he is all in.

Jennifer throws everything at Daemon and Katy.  Daedalus like to experiment. Some visuals in my head were a bit naassty.

As much as it pains me to say, I was personally left feeling a bit neutral , with Opal # 3, in parts. Yeah, I know a lot of readers gushed, but I thought it was a little less exciting than the other books in the series. But, Origin swooped in and rectified that for me.

It was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

Just everything about it blew me away.

Daemon was back, he was all loved up bringing a bag full of smart ass comments and he brought his A Game with his love for Katy.


Hunter made a deep noise. “Our little mutual white flag of friendship is going to come to a halt if you tell me to shut up again.”

I spared him a brief glance. “Shut. Up.”




I caught the tear with a kiss. “And I’m not going to let you do this by yourself. You’re my - you’re my everything, Kat.” At the sound of her soft inhale, I smiled again. “Come on, Kitten, did you really expect anything less from me? I love you.”



“Well, aren’t you just a special snowflake,” Daemon murmured.

“That I am.”




Baby, I’m so far up the ladder there aren’t any pegs under me to be knocked down.”



Luc, is such a fave character of mine because he is quirky. He really has his own stand out voice in this book. He has some great lines. He is holding his cards close to his chest.

Luc moved to the center of the floor. “I don’t have all day, guys. I have things to do. A nap I want to take this afternoon. There’s a new movie out on Netflix I want to watch, and a goddamn coupon for a free Whopper Jr. that’s calling my name.”



“Blake is... well, he’s Blake. But before you cast judgment, ask yourself how many people you’d crucify to get Katy back?”



“You’re not the only aliens out there who are butt sore. There are bigger problems than what you guys have. Yeah, I know, hard to believe.”

I glanced over at Hunter, who shrugged again and said, “Someone didn’t get his warm milk this morning.”




“How did you get out, Luc?”

He tilted his head to the side. “You don’t want to know what I did. And you won’t do what I did.”

A cold shiver crawled over my skin. I believed the kid.




“Me and Katy look adorkable in extraterrestrial highway shirts. You would just look stupid.”


Archer, I just love the guy. I keep singing in my head the Martin Gaye song, ‘Let’s get it on,’ when I think of him and another character. Not sure why, lol! Here’s hoping. Me thinks it will happen.

I already know I haven’t truly lived a single day, Katy. All of us know that.

This really was a brilliant installment in the Lux series. The shiz really hit the fan many times and Daemon is just so swoon worthy with his one woman love for Katy.


“I love you, Kitten.” Another deep , scorching kiss lit up my insides. “And I’m going to show you just how much I love you.”



I chuckled. “Good to know, because I’m planning on going everywhere - and taking the scenic route.”



“I want to spend every second, every minute, every hour with you.”Part of me couldn’t believe something that cheesy had come out of my mouth, but it was also so beautifully true. “I want a year’s worth of second’s and minutes from you. I want a decade’s worth of hours, so many that I can’t add them up.”


Daemon will not let ANYTHING stand in his way. He will make decisions that will come with their own bag of shiz but , it had to be done.

I really am still on a high from reading this book. I want Opposition so badly. The ending can be interpreted several ways.

I still have my thoughts on something, I believe Jennifer will drop it on us in Opposition...or not and I am on the wrong sniffer trail.

A can of worms has been opened up and holy mac and cheese, I can’t even begin to see how Jennifer is going to bring this holy mother of pearl series to a conclusion in two books.

“There’s a special place in hell for you people.”


The shiz has well and truly hit the fan.

There really were no words that fit how far Kat’s life had been derailed.


Obsidian, Onyx and Opal were nothing in the shiz stakes compared to what is going down from now on.

Lordy!

This installment turned into a block buster movie with Michael Bay at the helm.

Crap, I have to wait 9 months until Opposition. Now that is gonna hurt.

* face plant *

It will be like waiting for paint to dry.

Queue the elevator music as I wait... and wait...and wait.

Seriously you can’t do this to me Jennifer, it’s not healthy for my heart.


Death-by-waiting-for-a-book-to-be-released, that is what my grave stone will say.
