Opal Review

382 pages
No one is like Daemon Black. When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on. But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love. 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.

This is the third book in the Lux series and while the story gets more complicated as it continues, it does not become any less exciting. There are so many unanswered questions and things that just don't go right. Katy has become stronger with her newfound transformation, but she still doesn't think things through before she does them. I actually think Katy became more reckless in this novel than previous ones. Daemon shows more of a softer side now that he's with Katy, that you can't help but love. Due to all of the tragedy in the previous novel, there is a lot of broken friendships and loss of trust that make life a bit more difficult for Katy and everyone involved. We see a few familiar faces reappear and just generally make life harder for everyone. There is a lot more to learn about the aliens and the changes they make to humans and exactly what the government's deal with their enemies is. The ending is absolutely explosive and leaves off on a cliffhanger that will leave you yearning to read more. I definitely recommend reading this novel if you like novels about aliens but first pick up Obsidian and Onyx.
