Book Review: Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Lux #5)



Summary (from Goodreads)

Title: Opposition 

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Publication Date: 5 August 2014 

Publisher: Entangled Teen 







Summary:


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.



My Thoughts:


Hi, everyone! How has it been going? I know I haven’t been posting for a long time, and here's a review that should have gone live at least 2 years ago. But well, I only read the book in January 2016, so here you have it now. I remember I got the book once it was released, bit some stuff happened and I was postponing reading it every time.

Now let’s see. Just a small question, you’ve been reading this series right? If not, then you better start, it’s pretty great. To say the truth I was a bit tired as to how long it was taking for the story to end. Don’t get me wrong, I like the book, but it was too much. Lately I’m too lazy to even read trilogies, and this one has 5 books. Though I’ve read 4 previous ones about 2 years ago. It is essential that once you finish the book you are left with something. Here, I believed I would feel something, but well the ending disappointed me a bit. Even in the Sentinel, though I didn’t like the ending all that much, it was still better.

I was reading the book purely to know how Katy’s & Daemon’s story would end. In this book we get a really big incentive on the couple’s love life, I didn’t remember Daemon as sex maniac. It was as if the author didn’t know what to write about, so she just added those scenes. And the last thing that I will cover today, I love a good villain in the story. I believe a good written villain brings out the hero the best. Here the Luxen as villains were just pathetic. Their reason for world domination was … wait, was there a cohere reason for all that destruction? Believe me, I couldn’t really find it.

Nevertheless, it’s a nice conclusion to the Lux series and if you are just starting it, enjoy it and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!

XOXO

Katie
