Book Review: Opal by Jennifer L Armentrout (Lux Series #3)


Opal (Lux, #3)

Goodreads Synopsis: 

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.

My Thoughts

Third book into the Lux Series and I’m actually liking it. But with every book there’s always something negative to say about it unless it’s Harry Potter, hehehe ;). So as you can see, I’m sort of rearranging my layout of my reviews now. I wanted to amp it up a bit more and make it look better than before. 

Reading my previous Review posts, I mainly just talked about my emotions and how I felt while reading the book. I still want to continue doing that, but more organized in a way where I’ll specifically talk about characters, story line, writing style etc. Anyways, back to the review:

Ok. Hmmmm… the storyline reminded me of Twilight (book I hate the most). The whole high school scene where the boyfriend (Daemon) is overprotective over his stubborn and annoying girlfriend (Kat). On top of that Daemon and his family are “surprisingly” the most gorgeous people in the “small” town  with mysterious powers and Kat is “coincidentally” the ONLY child in her family living with her single parent. But lucky in this case I can’t quite picture Kat being an emotionless girlfriend, I actually imagine her being kick-ass :), apart from being slightly annoying.

But regardless of all that, I’m still intrigued. Is it the action behind it all? Is it that fear of what could happen? Is it the unexpectations? Oh yes it is all that. You don’t know how many times I told myself to go sleep before the beginning of a new chapter. Its ridiculous! One night I went to sleep and woke up at 3am to go to the bathroom. Came back to my room, thinking of going back to sleep, but you know what happened? I finished off reading this. It was like I didn’t want to go sleep anymore. So I finished off reading this around 5.30ish went for an hour sleep then back on the normal routine of getting ready for school. So yeah, sorry for going off track. Just wanted to emphasize on the impact this book had on me. 🙂

There were so many unexpected things that happened which really either made me angry or sad. There were times where I really wanted to cry but couldn’t. There was a time where I freaked out just like how Kat freaked out about this certain person/situation. And when I mean freaked out, I mean creeped out like someone stalking you creepy feeling. Eeepppp!!! But then I kinda questioned myself on where was Daemon at this time? I mean I got the feeling that Daemon could feel Kat right. So if what happened to Kat, couldn’t she feel that tingly feeling behind her neck if it was Daemon? Its like there’s no logic there because it had already being stated throughout the book that Daemon and Kat are connected literally.

The character I disliked the most in this book was Bart… oh I mean Barf. Oh wait, what’s his name? … that’s right Billy! I disliked him so so so so so MUCH!!. There are MANY reasons why I hate this guy. And what annoys me the most is that he STILL thinks everything is gonna go back to normal. AND HOW DARE HE thinks that saying sorry will do something. HOW THE FREAK can you have that sort of thinking when you’ve just literally killed someone in that family?!! A loved one? A boy who could’ve had a family with Dee? A young man who still had a future ahead of him? A harmless young man? AARRRGGHHHH!!!

I can keep going but I want to stop before I spoil anything. But before I go I want to let you know that end of the book is a CLIFFHANGER!! A MAJJOORRRRR CLIFFHANGER!!! REALLY hope that makes you pick up this series 🙂
