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.

At A Glance

An amazing ending to the series.

The Good

I have no idea why it took me so long to read Opposition. Stupidity on my part. I was blown away with every aspect.

Opposition starts right where Origin ended, which was good. The triplets are gone. The rest are left to wonder what the hell is happening! Aliens have invaded, and they are vicious! People are dying. Friends are now enemies. The world is never going to be the same. But we all know Katy and Daemon will find each other eventually, no matter the obstacles.

For some reason I didn’t think things were going to get that bad. But they did. The aliens raining down on the earth aren’t quite like Daemon and Dee. They are murdering assholes in mega proportions. It’s up to the Katy, Daemon, and the rest of the gang to help the humans defeat the alien basterds. Yeah, not so simple.

This book is action packed. Each character has their own crap going on, but they always come together somehow. Katy is still fragile in some ways, but she is strong as anyone can expect her to be. She fights for her friends and her family at every step of the way. I was so proud of her, for her drive and compassion, especially in the new world where compassion is dangerous.

Daemon is still arrogant, passionate and wicked. He never loses his sense of humor or love for Katy. If at all possible, he falls in love with her even more. I loved his POV in this book. He has such strong feelings about everything, it can make you dizzy sometimes.

I can’t say much about what happens because it would give too much away. But the fight never ends until the very end. Daemon, Katy, and Archer go on many journeys to solidify the human races survival. Archer was as awesome as ever. He’s one of my fav characters. Dee has some issues in the book that are heartbreaking to watch. And the rest were there to make the experience that much more entertaining and intense. Then it all ended in a good way, even if there is some lingering sadness for what they all lost. But their is hope, lots of hope.

The Bad

Nothing huge was wrong with the book, I just didn’t feel it was quite a 5 star read.

The Snuggly

Katy and Daemon are so in love it hurts. Their love runs so deep it makes me want to cry. I just love them together. We get some sex, as much as a YA book can give us sex (they push the boundaries), and it was hot!

Final Thoughts

Amazing series and amazing conclusion. There is not much I would change. Opposition focuses a lot on Katy and Daemon, which I liked. The action was spot on and the ending left me satisfied. Highly recommended.

Quotes

“Kat.” He uttered my name like it was some kind of prayer, and then he pressed a kiss against the skin behind my ear. “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’ve killed 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?”  

 

“It’s not like I’m going to run up and hug him.”
His expression turned bland. “I’d sure hope not. I might get jealous.”
“You’d get jealous if she hugged a tree,” Archer tossed out.
“Maybe.” Daemon coasted to a stop in a parking space behind the car. “I’m needy like that.”  

 

“I forced myself to stop thinking about Daemon, about anything I didn’t want to share with Archer, which was pretty much everything right now. So I thought about belly dancing foxes wearing grass skirts. Archer snorted. “You’re weird.”

    Do not get me started on how I haven’t started this series yet. Book one is still waiting to be read on my Kindle. Glad you are enjoying this series!

  2. Suzi Q, The Book Dame

    It’s good to know that this series stayed strong through the end. I read the first two books then dropped out for no reason at all. I was enjoying it, but it just got lost in the shuffle. Thank you for reviewing it and reminding me to finish up.

    Everyone has major love for this series and i LOVE that i still haven’t read one negative review for it. i’m debating binge reading it over the summer and meeting the swoon worthy Daemon. He seems like a keeper.

      Yeah, it’s hard to not love this series. It’s not perfect, but it’s still amazing.

  4. Christy

    I’ve always flirted with reading this series. We flirted, but never went all the way. I suppose I should give in already.

    • Jennifer Bielman

      Lift up your skirts and let this series have its dirty way with you!

    I really need to try all of her last books, I keep hearing amazing things about them. I have one but not in this series. Definitely need to try it!

    YAY! I’m so glad you loved this one. It was unbelievable to me how intense the series got. I loved Daemon’s POV as well and Archer was also one of my fav’s. Excellent review!!

    • Jennifer Bielman

      Did Archer ever get his own book? I need to read all the side books to this series.

  7. Benish

    I’m still reading the first book so I skimmed your review a bit 🙂 the romance sounds amazing so far.

    It’s always great when you are happy with the ending to a series. I have only read book one, but it was okay. I think this promises that the series gets better! I am glad you were able to enjoy all of these.
