Opposition by Jennifer L Armentrout book review







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.



This book followed the dramatic ending of Origin, where the Luxen came down to earth and Daemon, Dawson and Dee all turned into their true selves and followed their Luxen family.

Katy, Archer, Beth and Luc are in hiding, but Katy hasn’t given up on Daemon. Despite what Archer is telling her. Then she finds out that Beth is pregnant and she’s really not doing well so her and Archer decide to go to the store to get some vitimins for her…

And that’s where it all goes wrong.

Luxen swarm the store and Katy watches as they destroy humankind. But just as she’s leaving, Katy senses Daemon and runs back to find him. She’s blasted by power and ends up back in the Luxen compound…

Meanwhile Daemon is trying his hardest to not think about Katy, won’t even say her name because he knows they’ll pick up on his weakness; His undying love for her.

But then she’s in the compound and its Dawson who blasted her so he goes to see her, to heal her and to just geuinely be in her company. But he knows that when she wakes up he’ll have to act like the others and in the process he could end up breaking Katy’s heart.

He has another bigger problem aswell; his sister Dee. She is well and truely under the Luxen’s thumb, believing in their ideals and basically out to destroy humankind. Unlike Dawson and Daemon who’ve realised that their love for their hybrid counterparts run deeper than there loyalty to the Luxen so they cannot be controlled.

When Katy wakes up, its Dee she sees first and she’s totally shocked by the change in her. Gone is her best friend. Dee threatens to kill Katy a couple of times, before leading her down to the Luxen leader.

Where Daemon is.

And a girl…

Whose all over him and they are flirting.

But when another Luxen touches Katy, Daemon loses it and smashes him through a wall. Dameon then convinces the others that he only wants to keep Katy alive because she’s good in bed.

The female luxen all over Daemon takes Katy away to another room and when Daemon gets there he finds the room a mess and the pair of them about to fight… again.

Daemon gets rid of the female Luxen, leaving him alone with Katy where he finally breaks down and relishes in her.

Katy soon realises that Daemon was pretending and that their love is still strong. They have to get out of here however but Daemon is reluctant to leave his sister.

They do leave, ending up with Nancy Husher back in Area 51 again and they start to plan what to do next.

Daemon and Katy find out something about themselves, they end up making a pact with the arum to end the Luxen who are down here on earth, Katy manages to get through to Dee and breaks the hold and they end up back in Katy’s house, where she finds out her mother has been taken over by a Luxen…

Then comes the fight and GOD ITS BRILLIANT haha.

I won’t give away all of it but lets just say its the perfect ending to the Lux Series.

Despite the fact I nearly had a mental breakdown several times during this book I seriosuly couldn’t have loved it more. The scenes between Daemon and Katy were perfect, the love they had for each other seemed to grow stronger and stronger and I loved how well they worked as a team, how they got each other through the hard parts of the ordeal.

When Katy’s mom had been taken over and Daemon had to kill her… Katy’s heartbreak killed me. It was so raw and real and I was going through all the motions with her.

And Daemon.

Seriously is it possible to love him more?!

Lets just get a few Daemon quotes…

“Kat.” He uttered my name like it was some kind of prayer, and then he pressed a kiss against the skin behind my ear. “I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I … burned down an entire city to keep you safe. I’ve killed for you. Did you think I’d forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world— in any world— would be stronger than my love for you?”

“I wanted Kat out. Every cell of my being demanded that I protect her, even though I knew she was hella capable of doing so herself, but I wanted her far away from here. Hell, I’d keep her in Bubble Wrap if it weren’t so damn creepy and also inconvenient, considering I had a terrible habit of obsessively popping the damn things until not a single bubble was left.”



In all seriosuness I loved this book. I wanted to marry it that’s how much I loved it.

Katy and Daemon are one of my favourite book couples and shows us nerd girls that we can get a super hot guy to love us. hehe

Katy grew into an amazing woman in this book. She had alot of stuff to go through despite being young and she handled it as best as she could. Even if she did nearly bring the house down. Her revealtions about things were an eye opener and I loved seeing Daemon through her eyes.

Ultimately I loved seeing Katy through Daemon’s eyes. The guy grew up alot in this too and he knew, that whatever happened, his love for Katy would never change. It was a fixed point in his life.

And I loved the duel POV’s and how they coped with certain things and how they saw things.

And of course the kinky side of Daemon was still their 😉


I can’t express enough how much I LOVE this series and how much I love these characters. I have taken each of them into my heart and its a series that I will pick up whenever I want to.

I can wholeheartedly say that I have loved every single second I’ve spend with Daemon, Katy and the rest of the cast of characters. It’s always bittersweet to say goodbye to a much loved series, especially one that will forever hold a piece of my heart.

Jennifer is an amazing author and I love how much she makes these characters of hers human, like they are sat in the room with you. They’ve become my friends and even though it was hard to let go I did.

The epilogue in the book was perfect and Dawson and Beth’s baby was soooooooo cute!

Everyone of them got an ending they deserved.
