Opposition was an addictive read with a hell lot of non-stop action, sexiness, heartbreak and fun times and it sure did exceed my expectations.
Everything's basically gone to hell in Opposition and I'm talking alien-invasion, world dominion and the apocalypse.
The action scenes were so crazy and Daemon and Kat find themselves in such crazy situations that I was scared of turning the pages to find out what happens. Crazy s*** goes down in this book and the story was perfectly paced.
The epilogue however had me smiling till my cheeks hurt. It all wrapped up so well and I couldn't be more happier or proud of these characters. And lastly I need to know what was in that note Daemon had written to Kat in Onxy which makes an appearance here.

Genre: Science Fiction, Fantasy Fiction, Alien Mojo
Narration: Dual POV
Primary Characters: Daemon Black, Katy Swartz
It’s an awesome series. I’m in love with this series. I have loved watching Katy's and Daemon's characters grow and mature over the course of the books. However, conclusion was slightly disappointing to me as I was expecting big war action scenes, yet an amazing end to series.
Book starts exactly where Origin ended. DOD’s biggest fear has come true with Luxen’s invading earth. It’s time to choose sides and fight in this survival war. Nothing is same and it becomes impossible to tell friend from foe. If they have to survive this invasion they have to team with unlikely enemy. Prepare yourself for good amount of actions and battles. Everything came together in the end and made for a very satisfying conclusion to this long series
We meet several new characters in this. Characters were the best part of this series. I loved meeting Hunter and his brothers. This turn of events of meeting up with Hunter, Serena and Lore was grand and I was more than happy to catch up with them for a bit. I would like to know more about Arum.
Luc and Archer are gems. Luc is weird, but good-weird. I hope I will get to know more about him in some other books. Archer is Fabulous. Dee is ok ok, I didn’t like her, in the mean while I didn’t even hate her. Dawson and Beth’s moments were touching. I was hoping to see them more in action, which didn’t happen but I understand the turn of events it took. Katy and Daemon were at their best. They were perfect together.
Narration is good. However, the final war action scenes weren’t as per my expectation which made me give slightly less rating. I did like the banter, the friendship and the love - it's been an awesome journey.
So here we are, at the end of astounding series. This is unputdownable, swoon-worthy and action-packed alien mojo series. it’s glorious. If you haven’t started this series yet, the pick it up and enjoy this beautiful roller coaster ride.

I’m not going to talk about how wonderful Armentrout’s writing is because, if you’re on book 5 of this series, you already know it and love it as much as I do. It’s MASTERFUL. However, I will talk about how this book has much more action than its predecessors but without feeling forced or contrived. It was slotted in throughout the narrative which added gravity to the decisions characters made.
I could go on for ages about how much I love Katy and Daemon’s development from the start of this series to the end, but this book manages to condense everything I love about their growth into it. We have snarky and arrogant Daemon but also protective and sensitive Daemon. We have introverted and nervous Kat and then we have total-bad-ass Kat who will make damn sure that people listen to her. I love them separately and I love them together and they had some classic one liners that had me laughing out loud.
All in all, Opposition wrapped up everything I wanted it to and I think it was fitting for all the characters. I’m looking forward to reading the spin off series and Shadows/ Oblivion which I’m sure will make me love the characters even more than I already do.
Katy and Daemon have been put through the mill on numerous occasions, but their love for each other is breathtaking. All the characters bring something special to this wonderful tale, even the baddies.
I have really enjoyed reading this series, even when it had me on the edge of my seat and holding my breath. The plot, the pace, the romance, and all the actions are nicely balanced. A smashing series.
When I started the Lux series, I wasn't sold on it. I'm not a huge fan of YA novels at the best of times. Daemon amused me enough to keep me interested, though, so I slogged through the first and second books and hit the third... and that's when it captured me. Something clicked and the story became more than just a "yeah, it's not bad," to "holy shit, gimme more!"
Opposition has its issues. There are a couple of things I think could have been done better, but overall, a fantastic book which ties up the series nicely.
... and I've been informed today (and pre-ordered) that Luc is getting his own book in October this year (2018) so there's that!
I have been a fan of the Lux series from the very beginning, it is one of my favourite book series of all time so while i'm a little sad to see the end I am so happy as to how it ended. Everything that needed to happen, happened and there were still so many things that I didn't see coming. I love how everything tied up and rounded together so you were never left thinking that this could of been better or it should of happened this way because you see the genius of why they ended that way, even if you didn't particularly like that it had to happen like that.
All in all, opposition is a stunning conclusion to a brilliant series. It has everything you would ever need in a book, amazing romance, fantastic action and funny one liners throughout the entire story. It was brilliant and I am sad to see it end but really happy on how everything ended. I would recommend this series to every young adult fan because it mixes and brings together so many genres that you can't help but caught up with it and fall in love with it from the very beginning. So if your looking for a funny, fast and action packed read that features gorgeous aliens and thrilling romance then pick up this series and by the time you get to this book you will be head over heels in love with Daemon Black.
Opposition is the final book in the Lux series and picks up where Origin left off. A bunch of Luxen appeared on Earth and Daemon, Dawson and Dee disappeared off with them. These new Luxen are hostile and are hell bent on taking over the world and killing every human, hybrid and any other weird combination of the two.
Opposition is the most action packed book of the series. Right from the get go the action starts. Katy is out buying supplies with Archer for Beth when the psycho Luxen descend on the store. Katy spots Daemon and then suddenly Dawson appears and cracks her over the head. Katy wakes up in a house full of hostile Luxen and has no idea what's going on. Dee is acting like she wants to kill her and Daemon is as cold as ice towards her. But Daemon is only pretending to help Katy and himself until there's an opening for him to escape with Dawson and Dee. But when the opportunity appears, Dee decides to stay with the hostile Luxen because she's in pain and doesn't want to feel.
So Dawson, Daemon and Katy are rescued by the last person on Earth they'd ever trust - Nancy Husher. But working with the Government is the only way they're going to be able to stop the Luxen.
Katy and Daemon are still my ultimate OTP. Those two would go to hell and back for each other. In fact, they have been. They're so completely and utterly in love and I just adore reading about them.
Beth and Dawson are adorable as well and they're even more adorable due to something that I don't want to mention but it makes them even cuter.
I adored seeing more of Luc and Archer. Luc is one of my favourite characters everyone. He know everyone and he has a lot of secrets. He's hilarious and such an intriguing character. Archer reminded me a bit of Daemon, but he's less intense. He's caring, protective and hilarious.
There was a lot more fighting in this one due to the invading Luxen, but it made the book even more exciting. But it also made me slightly apprehensive because I wasn't sure whether Armentrout was going to kill any more of my beloved character. There was a lot on the line in Opposition and the gang had to team up with their most hated enemy to help deal with the Luxen because it was the only way they could get rid of them.
Opposition was an emotional ending to such a fantastic series. I could honestly read about Daemon and Katy and the rest of the character forever. I just adored them and this world so much and I was extremely sad to say goodbye to them. But, on the bright side, there's a new book in the series coming out in Daemon's POV! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for some new scenes and not just a rehash of the series in his POV. I need some of him and Katy after Opposition!
