Opposition (Lux #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Opposition (Lux #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
This is a young adult paranormal romance novel (Rated R)
(Four and a half Lux Hearts)
Book Summary
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
The End. I hate those words at the end of a book I totally enjoyed. I hate it worse when it’s the end of a series. It sucks eggs to say goodbye to a series you love.
The last book had EPIC moments and a cliffy that spelled EPIC for the end of this series. While I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I think my expectations were way too high. The Covenant series ended EPICally, so I expected the same.
It wasn’t as EPIC as I hoped. The ending felt a bit rushed and everything wrapped up way to easy. Without giving away spoilers, my question is with the help that was received, wouldn’t that help take advantage once they had the advantage? If you’ve read, maybe you understand my cryptic words.
I still have questions and maybe there is a spin off in the future. And Dawson. Many of you know I prefer Dawson over Daemon. Call me weird. I pick my book boyfriends for many reasons. But I will say, I grew to love the ass the Daemon was and appreciate who he either came to be or revealed himself to be.
In the end, this series is a must read for YA paranormal lovers. It has it all, love, romance, angst, and hotness.
Audio Review
Justine Eyre and Rob Shapiro almost destroyed the enjoyment of this book because they couldn’t pronounce Daemon. I mean logically Dae (two vowels the first one has the long sound Kindergarten reading). They pronounce Daemon -> Demon, completely ignoring the A. And Justine Eyre also makes a story sound so damn depressing. I still haven’t finished Archangel’s Storm or moved forward with Nalini Singh’s series simply because of Justine Eyre (and maybe the writing too).
