Review: Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: Opposition
Series: Lux, #5
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Category: Paranormal/ Romance/ Sci-Fi
Genre: Young Adult (mature)
Rating: 5 BILLIONS stars out of 5
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 Review: 

I can't really believe that this is the last book in the Lux Series. And of course I don't want it to be. But it really was the perfect ending to this wonderful series. Katy and Daemon got the ending they so deserve. I can’t think of a better conclusion for this wonderful series, either. Jennifer wrapped everything up so, so nicely and I feel that Katy and Daemon, along with the rest of the characters, got a wonderful and well deserved ending. I have absolutely no complaints or think the book couldn't have been better, because it was magnificent!
 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.
Katy and Daemon have grown so much since their first encounter, at Daemon’s front door. Both really have been tested in so many ways, but they faced those challenges head on. And I loved that they have never backed down. Katy found such a powerful inner strength and Daemon found a love like no other. Both have grown together and have had amazing inner growth as well. I adore them each so much! They really have become one of my absolute favorite characters and couple, not only because of their deep love, but because of their character growth and inner strength.

The love between Daemon and Katy is just so powerful and I really think that Jennifer made that come through remarkably well.  I love that they always stood together no matter what, no matter the obstacles. I just find them perfect, so perfect for each other, and I know I will always love them.

I also have to mention Dee, Dawson, and Beth, along with the other characters – that includes Hunter and Serena! Yes, they made quite a few appearances in Opposition and I just loved that!  I felt they too got the ending they deserved. I can’t mention a lot about what Dee went through in the book, but I can say I am very satisfied with her growth and how she was at the end of the book as well.  Jennifer created an amazing cast of characters, each one unique and quite interesting.

The book progressed at such a good pace and the ending felt very well-rounded. Each character had such good dynamic, and their growth was really noticeable. The storyline was deep and very original. Jennifer did a brilliant job at making aliens sexy and so very interesting. She created an intricate world filled with such diversity.
“I'm game for anything with you, Daemon Black.” 
Opposition was action-packed, brimming with intense moments that had me on the edge of my seat. It had gripping moments I couldn't believe were happening and moments that just broke my heart. There were also moments that filled me with bubbly happiness and glee. This was a wonderful, wonderful conclusion to a series that will forever be close to my heart.

I know I will always love this series, always love Katy and Daemon, and I know I will be re-reading their story multiple times. Over and over. And each time, I know, I will fall even more in love with them, their story, and their love. I highly encourage other to at least give this series a try! 


  1. I am so sad this series is over (and btw I cannot believe we have no discussed this yet lol prepare for twitter bombardement) but I agree that this was a great conclusion to the series and I really could not have asked for more. Wonderful review my dear friend!

  4. Okay, so I just only read your rating and not your review because I'm reading Opposition right now. I will come back in a few days and read the whole review then, hope you don't mind.

    But your rating says it all :)

    I'm only at the beginning (page 57) but things are already pretty intense.

    And I wanted to thank you again for encouraging me to give this series a second chance, because, as you might remember, I wasn't too fond of the first book. But you said that the other books are so much better, and I listened to you and you were so freaking right. I just love this series and thanks to you, I've discovered Jennifer L. Armentrout and her other amazing books. So thank you so much, Magen!!!

    1. AW! You just made my day! Sending you so many hugs right now!! And I'm so glad you did pick the series back up and ended up falling in love with it!! :D

    2. Sending you many hugs back:) I finished Opposition yesterday and I am sooooo happy. Loved how it ended and it was the perfect ending. Like you, I love this couple and I think that Daemon and Katy are perfect for each other, and like you said, they went through a lot, faced so many obstacles and grew so much as a couple and as individuals as well. AWESOME review, my dear!

  5. Ahhhh!!! Magnificent!! That's what I want to hear!! Now I know I need to get to it and finish this series!! But I am kind of hooked on the Covenant series right now.... I have Deity, waiting for me on my book case!
