SYNOPSIS via Amazon: 

The Lux series continues with the third installment of this riveting paranormal YA series.

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. 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.

RATING: 6/10
GOOD READ

I am late on the train with the Lux Series, but after finishing book three, Opal, there is no stopping until the end. Each book is better than the last and the plot is finally thickening! 

The first of the two in the series, Obsedian and Onyx, moved at a rather slow pace for my taste. The humor and the romance between Katy and Daemon are what really kept me invested in the series. Opal opened a larger door to a world of unknowns and flooded my mind with a league of questions. Setting it up to be a stepping stone to, I believe, a much larger story that will unfold in the fourth installment, Origin.

Romantically speaking, this book is a hit. Daemon’s and Katy’s relationship picks up heat and the two finally are able to accept their feelings for one another. This of course leads to a few steam-y scenes that sucks you in and leaves you wishing you had one (or two) Daemon Blacks in your life. 

All of you Twilight and The Hunger Games fans, this next series is for you!
