No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

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.

Katy has been freed from DOD and with her they have freed Dawson who’s been missing for a year but they didn’t get his girlfriend Beth. Dawson may have been gone a year but it’s been a long year and he can’t stop thinking about going and getting Beth. Katy’s friendship with Dee has been destroyed with the secrets and the death of Adam she can’t forgive Katy for her involvement. When Blake returns to town he wants Katy and Daemon to help him get Chris his friend back from the DOD and Dawson wants to get Beth. Blake even has a plan it should be easy for them to get their friends and get out with the help of a stranger who only wants a favor.

With a plan in place they set out to the DOD compound intent on getting their friends but things go painfully wrong that they have to scrub the mission. Together they will have to figure out a new plan to save their friends before Dawson goes at it alone. With the new knowledge about the Onyx they set out to come up with a new plan. Katy’s life outside of training isn’t easy she is attacked in her home and she still knows the secrets about her mom’s missing boyfriend. When the time comes will they be able to save Beth and Chris? Can they really trust Blake? Who’s Luc?

I love Katy and Daemon they are my favorite paranormal couple the chemistry between the two is on awesome. My heart goes out to Dee after losing Adam after only just finding him and I hope there is potential for someone in the future for her. I really liked Dawson in the novella and I’m thrilled to get to know the brooding alien more.

Opal is the third installment in the Lux series which tells the story of Katy and Daemon. Adam is gone but Dawson is back but things will never be the same for our aliens and Katy but they can’t just give up yet. Another captivating installment in the Lux series it was hard to put down I just can’t seem to get enough of Katy my favorite book blogging character and her sexy alien. The concept for Opal fits perfectly in the series telling an intricate story that’s filled with twists and turns at every corner that kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to know what will happen next only to finish in a cliffhanger. It’s a good thing I have the next one sitting on my shelf reading or I would be at a lost. Opal is beautifully written the author has created an amazing story that captures the heart as well as the imagination. I really love her writing style it just flows so smoothly. I can’t wait to start the next one.
5 out of 5 stars
