Buddy Read with Guest Review: Opal (Lux #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout (@JLArmentrout)

Hello everyone!

My buddy reading with Jamsu is continuing with the third book in the Lux series, Opal! This is my favorite of the series so far!!

Instead of posting our reviews for the book on our blogs, we thought that it would be nice to exchange reviews and post each other’s review, so the review you’ ll find below is Jamsu’s and mine is posted on her blog!




Title: Opal

Series: Lux #3

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Publisher: Entangled Teen

Genres: Paranormal Romance, Aliens

Release Date: 3 December 2012



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.

4.5 Stars

I was so happy that Luc finally made an appearance! I can’t wait until The Darkest Star gets published in the end of October and I get to start reading his book series. And he better get more than one book instead of only one book like Hunter did.

I absolutely loved every single scene between Daemon and Katy. They just want to keep each other safe. I just wish Katy stopped keeping things from him. I love it that Katy knows him so well that she can read from his face what he’s thinking.

I agreed with Lesa when she said: “I need a Daemon.”  Where can I get one, please?

This one was so close to being a five-star book. I just was so annoyed at Dee. I mean come on– I understood why Andrew acted the way he did with Katy but Dee was her best friend. I don’t understand in fiction why best friends always say something like “I were your best friend so you should’ve told me everything’.

Just because you’re best friends with someone doesn’t mean that you need to tell them everything. Besides Dee is one to talk about keeping secrets. Thankfully Dee at least realized what a bitch she was towards Clarissa. She was mad and blamed Katy but why did she abandon her other friends? I’m glad that she had Andrew and Ash, though.

This series is so good and I don’t understand why it gets hate sometimes. I really recommend this if you want to give young adult alien book a chance.
