Book Three of the bestselling Lux series

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.

REVIEW BY ALEXA

Kalau awalnya kupikir series ini tidak bakalan bisa lebih keren lagi karena Daemon n Katy sudah jadian, mungkin aku musti minta maap kepada Miss Jen. Karena dia berhasil mengolah hubungan mereka menjadi tetap fresh, panas, mengemaskan dan pastinya jauh dari membosankan.

Dibuku Opal alurnya cenderung lebih lambat dari Onyx. Menurutku lebih fokus ke perkembangan relasi Daemon n Katy dan status baru mereka, hubungan mereka dengan ibu Katy dan pasangannya, juga keluarga Luxen Daemon. Membaca Opal membuatku lebih rileks dan sentimental. Porsi action dan berantem bisa dibilang agak minim tapi tetap.dipenuhi percakapan cerdas dan lucu dari ego Daemon. Yah hampir setara dengan Obsidian.

“You haven’t been smiling much. I missed it, so I decided to reward you for doing it.”
“Reward me?” I laughed.
“God, only you would think kissing someone is a reward.”
“You know it is. My lips change lives, baby.”

Ada beberapa scene seksi yang membuatku meringis gemes sambil gigit-gigit bakiak. Ada juga momen galau akut antara pingin peluk Daemon ato gampar dia pake kulkas. Belum lagi scene romantis yang membuatku leleh bak lilin yang dipanaskan perlahan, terus menerus..

Problem utama dari Opal adl kembaran Daemon yang cenderung mengambil banyak.resiko dan kemunculan musuh yang tak terduga yang menawarkan kesempatan langka namun berbahaya bagi mereka. Endingnya yang mengagetkan cukup berani dan berbeda dari 2 buku sebelumnya dan sudah pasti membuat aku tersentuh, kuatir dan penasaran di saat yang bersamaan.  Walau rollercoaster dan twist di Opal lebih sedikit tapi tetap menggoda iman untuk membuatku melirik buku lanjutannya.. ORIGIN, here I come..
