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.


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’vekilled 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 am incapable of words. This is my worst nightmare come to life. I’m heart-broken and giddy and INCAPABLE of speech. And it’s only been 10 hours since I finished reading this book. So here it goes, the first ever of it’s kind on Rhea’s Neon Journal:

Opposition – A Review In Gifs

In the very beginning of the book, I was all

And then I realized what was happening (it took two re-readings of the first two chapters) and then I was pissed with Daemon.

Because he was a big ass douche, ya know? Then I realized what the entire thing was about. My kind-of Eureka moment. And so did Katy. And we were all

The Luxen that landed on Earth at the end of Origin? Yeah, so not the cute and cuddly types. They were all, “We’re going to take over the Earth because we can, mofos.” But our favorite Luxens had a plan. In hindsight, it wasn’t the smartest one, but when I read it:

Obviously, because it’s Daemon and his Kitten there’s gotta be this:

and this:

and this:

and this:

Shit got real. Lives were lost and more stuff happened than any other Lux novel. Katy legit lost her shit. Daemon almost lost Katy. Archer and Dee went through some tough shit and I couldn’t even believe the entire Nancy-Luc-Nadia angle. So much of loss and death and sadness, all because of the want of world denomination by one species.

Or is it?

The writing was amazing. Opposition did not disappoint when it came to Miss Armentrout’s ability to wrap things up. Sure it wasn’t all ribbons and bows and unicorns but a certain degree of closure that I need as a reader? I got that. I also got what no Lux book had before: An Epilogue.

As for my mental state? I don’t know when I’m going to be able to read a book again. Opposition is already giving me the mother of all book hangovers and wow. I need help. But hello? I finished reading the Lux series by J L Armentrout in a week and I can go around flaunting my Daemon and Kat knowledge now. No matter the fact that after that epilogue, my swoons have killed me.
