Book Review: Opal, Origin and Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Synopsis on GoodReads:

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different… And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger… and they know it.

My Review:

Honestly, it took me for freaking ever to finish this book. I loved Obsidian and Onyx, but this one in the series; well it just seemed like a bridging type of book. The one that connects the series.
It was the slowest to read and I didn’t enjoy it as much as the last two. I’m just hoping that Origin is better.

My Rating:

**** 4/5 stars (Not much of a review because it wasn’t the best of books to read)


Synopsis on GoodReads:

Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.

After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.

All Katy can do is survive.

Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?

Together, they can face anything.

But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on?

And will they even be together?

My Review:

Oh lord, oh shit balls!
It’s all hit the fan, or as Luc would say “ET so phoned home, kids!”

My Rating:

***** 5/5 (Once again, a  super short two sentences review due to so much going on! But it really is summed up in those sentences!)


Synopsis on GoodReads:

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:

Honestly I really enjoyed this book as an ending to a series, it was nice to see how everything came to an end.
At the beginning I’m not going to lie I want to beat ten bags of flour our of Daemon and Dee, but I’m glad that Daemon beat it. Then eventually Dee did, she didn’t deserve having that hold over her, none of them did.
It was horrible to find out that Kat’s family had gone, and to see how she dealt with that. Though in spite of all the bad I’m glad she built and found a family in those close to her.
It’s nice that they finally got what they wanted in the end, and the world slowly crept back to normal. Or some state of it. It’d of been nice to have seen the actual wedding and them starting college though.
Beth and Dawson’s little one broke me, it was nice to see that they’d named her after Ash. Not to mention how smitten everyone is with her. The special little origin.

My Rating:

***** 5/5 stars
