Opposition: "Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came. She can't believe Daemon stood by as his kind threaten to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred. Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything to ensure that survival of their friends--and mankind".--Shadows: "The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. To him, human girls are--well fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane. Dangerous. Bethany can't deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren't a complication she wants, whenever they lock eyes, she's drawn in. Captivated. Dawson can't stop risking everything for one human girl. Or stop a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself."--… (més)

3.5/5 Stars

(Although Shadows is included in the books, I want to rate & review them as the two different books that they are)

As a fair warning, if you have not read Opposition yet, you may not want to read my review...It may get a little Spoiler-ish....

Let me start off with the positive, the book was good, and I think some of my issue is that I marathon'd the series and I was kind of burned out when it came to reading because I have been reading so much lately. It had it's normal drama, funny & I love them times. It was a wonderful ending to a great series. JLA ended it the way it should have been ended.

Now, on to what I didn't like and this may get a bit lengthy, may make a few people upset and get a bit spoiler-ish so I would stop reading now if you continued reading past the first warning and have not read the book yet.

Although I still loved Daemon throughout this book, his possessiveness, jealousy & controlling ways really got under my damn skin throughout the first half of this book. There were so many times I wanted to throw the book because Daemon was just taking it too overboard. Many situations that should have been checked by Katy, wasn't..maybe it's because she's young and she doesn't see how his behavior is negative and so not cute at all. He is a possessive, jealous, insecure & controlling person over his sister as well, but it seemed worse with Katy. The good thing about Dee is though, she will get him told and where to take his mess if he took it too far with her. Even Dawson would get to the point he would go toe to toe with him if he needed to.

Much of the book was kind of predictable in many ways. I can't even remember half the places I saw things coming before they came. I think I read and finished this book because I had gotten so far in the series and didn't want to give up on it, but I knew if I had put the book down, it may have been months or even a year before I picked it up again because I had a negative thought process started when it came to the book. Again, like I said, it was a good book, well written..blah blah blah...I just wasn't feeling it/liking it the way I wish I could have.

For those of you who loved it and don't agree with my review, well, I would say I'm sorry we don't agree but, um, I guess I'm not really..for the simple fact that we are all going to think differently about books...

This is not a stab at JLA's writing..because the series as a whole for me is a strong 4.5/5 stars (Seeing that I haven't read Shadows yet, I will just count the 5 books without the Novella). So, Ms. Armentrout or to any of her publishers that may come across this particular review, just know, I love the series...And I am not intending to put your writing style down..It's just to say that in this one case, I wanted to beat the hell out of Daemon throughout much of this book! lol...Maybe that was the point?!?!

Well, this one came in hot and heavy.
I'm going to do my usual series disclaimer, now, and beg you to stop reading this review if you haven't read up to the fourth book.
Bye-bye, babes.
I'll wait.

Ok, we're about to get into this (seriously, you've been warned).
At the end of Origin, all hell broke loose. In an attempt to outsmart the Department of Defense, the known Luxen and some of the Origins (oh, yeah, and the Hybrids) had combined forces to stage this Vegas Strip worthy distraction to bust a road block out of the city.
It didn't really go as planned (does anything ever in this series?).
So, now, the rest of the Luxen have arrived on Earth and they are not happy.
Nor are they like our sweet, sexy bands of triplets everyone has come to know and love over the course of the series.

Most of the newer, invading Luxen are these empathy-less glowworms, hell bent on doing the usual alien things: body snatching, pod people, and the like.
As is the apparent requirement for sci-fi adventure books, the central crew tasked with saving the world is made up of members of all competing parties. So, we've got humans, hybrids, D.O.D. members, Luxen, Origins, and a few Arum, banding together against every respective party, praying the world doesn't go to crap.

The ending, well, I'll let you find that out for yourself. Let me just say that I have been eyeball deep in aliens and this sorry for weeks with all of the twists and turns and even I didn't see the end coming. I basically finished and wanted to go sprinting back to the beginning. ( )

2.5 stars.
It was a bit meh. A lot of overprotecting and not being able to keep their hands to themselves as soon as they were left alone together. Katy was going to go badass and save the situation once but it ended up with someone being overprotecting.
I think the series overall gets 3 stars. I really liked the first two books, couldn't put them down. I liked the humour in those books, the humour kind of disappeared after that. Too bad. ( )

Though I didn't enjoy the conclusion of the Lux series as much as the others, it was still a great ending. I was surprised, actually, by how much I enjoyed the prequel novella at the end of the book. I think I may have actually liked it more than Opposition. Individually, I'd rate Opposition 4 stars and Shadows 5 stars. Overall, I give the book 4.5 stars! ( )
