Review- Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Opal (Lux, #3)

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.

Oh Jennifer.... Oh Jennifer. This review is so overdue because of you!!!! YOU!!! You did this to me. She put me in a writing ... funk!!! I think that is a word, I heard it on a Disney show, so it might not be one...

But seriously after I finished this book, way way back in December, I really climbed back into bed and cried myself to sleep. And I'm NOT lying. It was the worst kind of most amazing and awesome book ever. Did that make sense. It was so good and yet so bad. And it is really paradoxical.

The book is so romantic and sweet and 1000 times better in the romance department that Onyx, simply because Daemon and Katy are GOING OUT and not hating each other for their intense physical attraction. But for those of you who are hoping that there will be no more of their snarky fights and comments, well.... you are in for a disappointment because there are loads and I mean loads. I mean, why would you hope that, hello spontaneous combustion is what makes this book so awesome!!!!

Unless you all are living under a rock, I'm pretty sure you know that Opal has the biggest cliffhanger ever!!! I mean take Obsidian and Onyx (their endings) and then multiply it into 10 and then 3 and then INFINITY!!!!! Seriously it is horrible and I'm so glad that I have recovered after what seems like months and am finally able to write a review for a book. ( I might have been a bit lazy as well).

The weird part about this book was that, when I was reading, I really did get a sort of ominous feeling throughout the book. I mean some parts were so sweet and cute and although you expect something horrible to happen, in true JLA style, it doesn't and towards the end, in this one scene with Daemon you start chanting in your head. "No, don't do this, NO don't do this" I mean I had no idea what 'this' was, but I guess my inner subconscious did. And then in the end your just like .... what just happened. I mean, I don't swear, but if I did, let's just say that there would be F-bombs pouring out of my mouth.

Daemon and Katy grew up as a couple. They handled their serious fights maturely and some fights ended in ... well you know what. But it was cute to see Daemon give in sometimes.
But Daemon is NOT CUTE.
He is so..... *swoon* Awesome, sexy.... awesome..... insanely sexy!!!!
I mean if Daemon came out of the book and told me to sell him my soul, in exchange for some Daemon time, I would do it, without even thinking. I loved Daemon in Obsidian, in Onyx I thought my love for him reached galaxies and all that and in Opal, if there was something more that love I have that x a bazillion!!!!

 For those of you who haven't read Onyx yet, I won't give out any spoilers. But Katy is different. And with that difference comes a few consequences. She is paying for what happened in Onyx. And she doesn't have the support of a few people, who mean a lot to her. So it was heartbreaking to see that.

But all cliffhangers and sad stories aside. This book blew my mind! It was amazing and awesome and everything in between. I loved it. It was the best Lux book till date. And the wait for Origin is making me fat because every time I think about Opal I rush for the ice-cream. I was lying I'm a depression starver, as in I don't eat when I'm sad. Hence the protrusion of my ribs!!! :( :(
If you haven't read it yet, what the hell are you waiting for?!!! GO AND BUY IT!!!! AND SIT DOWN AND READ IT!!!!

Rating: 5 stars
