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

If you haven't read the first book of this series, please go here to check my review. This review will spoil the rest of the books for you. If you have read all the books up til Onyx, you can go ahead and continue reading this review.


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. 

I put off writing this review and I jumped right into Origin, and I have finished it. So, I'm quite forgetful of some parts, it isn't as fresh in my mind. I will try my best nonetheless.

Let's jump tight into the SPOILERS. If you haven't read this book, do not view the following:

Katy was so annoying at the beginning of this, she decided in a whim that she'll dish to both Carissa and Lesa about Dawson and it got on my nerves. The thing about these books it that they are incredibly hilarious, I love it when Daemon kept calling Blake "Biff" and what's with him getting into bed with Katy!? That was super creepy!!

The ending was kind of predictable for me, I knew deep inside that Daedalus let Dawson escape so he'd come back for Beth with more Luxen, I didn't expect that Katy was the one they'd wanted to lure Daemon in with. It's either they capture them all or none, this is so upsetting! I didn't even think that this was worth getting Beth back for, Beth escaped a lot and it shouldn't be Katy's turn, they could've waited for Beth to escape instead of going in to get her. Blake wasn't the trustworthy kind, I knew that he was drawing them in so they can help him take Chris and leave. 

The whole Carissa thing still is a mystery to me, who on Earth mutated her? As soon as I knew she was sick, I knew that she was being mutated. Even if, why would she go after Kat? It was a Daedalus move, but why did Carissa attack her best friend? Why would Kat put the Opal on her chest?! She was going into Mount Weather, It's filled with Daedalus people who are the owners of the Opal she's wearing. Of course something wrong was bound to happen, she basically was giving them the Opal on a silver platter.

The covers are seriously annoying, not only that they're ugly, but the whole time I was reading Opal, I had this thing inside of me that suspected that Katy was going to die. My reasons are, 1- She kept talking about her future with Daemon and that is a always a sign of dying. 2- Origin's cover is only Daemon. Katy isn't with him and I should've thought this through, because if Katy died, Daemon would've died too. 

Now on the good side of things, prom was amazing! It was my favorite part of the whole entire book. I'm glad Daemon and Katy got to be intimate before she was taken away from him!! I was happy with where their relationship was going and it was growing everyday.. I teared up at the ending, when Daemon finally admitted that he loved Katy! This is extremely unfair. Blake is an asshole, though. He literally deserves to die. 

Those were my thoughts on Opal, if you have read the Lux series tell me down below which book was your favorite! 

Check out what I've thought of the other books:


Have a great day everyone x

  1. Blake is seriously the most annoying character! What made it worse was the fact that Katy seemed to still trust him! It made me feel bad for Daemon, even though he handled it pretty badly :P
    I also think that these covers are the ugliest things... They're so embarrassing - I don't even want to take these books out in public because of them!
    Great review!

    1. I KNOW! Katy can make the stupidest of decisions sometimes, but everything Daemon does just makes me drool.. He's my favorite male protagonist.
      HAHA I totally agree, I (shamefully) pick out books by their covers and I would have never picked these out.. If they change the covers, I'd be really happy! and thank youu <3


You comments make my day! So thank youuu :) <3
