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.
This was one of my most highly anticipated read of 2014 and I felt so relieved to share that this book not only met but exceeded my expectations!
Katy and Daemon continued to amaze me with their wits, charms and oh-so-sarcastic remarks. It was really fun to see them in action and I liked the way they bantered. There were a few romantic scenes that were steamy and sweet and I liked that this pair never ceased to love one another despite the awful circumstances that they were in.
I also liked how things were unfolded in this installment. The pacing was fast and there were a few wacky, unexpected surprises. I liked that the theme of true loyalty was explored. I knew the Luxen, human and Origin had their own agenda, but it still shocked me to see how cruelty, selfishness and vengeance could be played out in such monstrosity in the story. It was sad to see all the hardship that Katy had to deal with, and I was just happy that in the epilogue she had plenty of the bookish stuff that she loved, including a brand new shiny red MacBook!
If you adored Daemon, you wouldn’t want to miss what he came up with to stop his race from destroying Earth. And you surely wouldn’t want to miss what he did to make sure that Katy could stay safe and sound in the end. Read Opposition, and you’ll see why this series has reached #4 on the New York Times YA series list in August 2014.
