Opposition – Review

OPPOSITION-500pxNote: Long review due to mostly fangirling.

OMG! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!
I just can’t believe it!
This series is OVER!
I don’t know what…. I hate when amazing series like this ends.
But I’m thankful the ending was just right; it was perfect.
There was nothing wrong, it ended beautifully, and it was just RIGHT!
It’s like with TV series endings… Producers just give us really weird and crappy endings, leaving viewers with this sense of, what I’d like to call nothing. You just sit there and wonder “What am I supposed to feel right now? I don’t know…”
Well, you’ll be glad to know that Opposition IS FREAKING AMAZING! and everyone needs to read this series, because it’s so good! and it’s really one of my favourite YA series. Maybe even next to Harry Potter.

There have always been Luxen on Earth.
But now they’re invading; now the world is going to change.
When the Luxen from outter space come to invade Earth they are an organized threat to society.
Now, Katy and Daemon are on the run from his kind, the Luxen, and will do no matter what it takes to stop them.
Friends become enenies, enemies become friends. They’ll all have to work together to keep the peace.
One thing’s for sure, the world will never be the same again.

My body, was totally not prepared for this series to be over. I’d so many good things, but just didn’t want it to be over. Just like how I didn’t want Harry Potter to be over.
THIS FREAKING SERIES NEEDS TO BE MOVIES!
Just nuff said. There’s so much content and so much to love about the characters and the storyline, it just feels right. They keep trying to turn YA books into movies like The Hunger Games, Divergent, The Maze Runner, etc etc, WHAT HAPPENED TO ALIENS!? Good old fashioned mother freaking aliens! If they were anything like the Luxen, Arum and Origins, I would be SO DOWN to see it in theaters. You know, provided Hollywood did a good job.

I seriously, don’t even have anything bad about this series.
It’s just amazing. The main characters are amazing, the side characters are amazing, the bad guys are amazing, even the characters you think are bad guys but are good guys but are somewhere in the middle and you don’t really know what side they’re on….ARE AMAZING. Seriously, even the bad guys are amazing and convincing. I mean that from the previous book Origin and into Opposition.

It’s very rare that I find books where I like side characters/reoccuring characters just as much as mains.
And seriously.
I’m pretty sure I said this in my Origin review but…TEAM LUC ALL THE WAY! OMG I HEART THIS KID SO MUCH! Can he be my little brother? Like seriously, I would just eat this kid up! I would probably hate how much smarter he is, and he’d probably get on my nerve, but he’s amazing! Archer grew on me, and Dee is just…amazing. (Dawson and Beth got their own book, and I love them but we’re talking about reoccuring characters now). And seriously, even the ‘villains’ in this book are amazing.

There is just something about Katy and Daemon. All this bs is happening, all around them, and they still manage to have time to be teenagers (or at least Jennifer L Armentrout writes them that way). We have to remember that these two are only seventeen/eighteen, and they have the weight of the world on their shoulders. Talk about pressure. But Daemon never loses his playful side and Katy never loses her spunk. I like that in novels, I like to remember how old characters are because characters need to act their age.

“Got it.” Snagging up my jeans, I pulled out one of the foil wrappers. Oddly enough, though, as I glanced over at her, seeing her on the bed, waiting for me, only me, I almost forgot how to put one on.
That would’ve been awkward.
“Oh my God,” she said, laying her head back against the bed. Amused exasperation colored her tone, but she looked like a damn goddess positioned like that. “It’s like you have a special skill when it comes to finding condoms. Serious. They must just fall out of the sky whenever you’re around.”

But there are times when….they just surpass their years and love each other so much. And really, it’s the kind of love that I want – that every girl deserves.

“Kat.” He uttered my name like it was some kind of prayer, and then he pressed a kiss against the skin behind my ear. “I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I married you and burned down an entire city to keep you safe. I’ve killed for you. Did you think I’d forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world – in any world – would be stronger than my love for you?”

I absolutely, love, love how Jennifer L Armentrout can write two dialogues of two different characters and I’m never questioning who’s perspective it is. I mean, it does help that she mentions it at the start of the chapter, but even if she didn’t, I think it would be fairly easy to differentiate between Katy’s POV and Daemon’s POV. Some authors I find have difficulty giving two different voices to their characters when writing a book with multiple POVs. Armentrout does this FLAWLESSLY, and I absolutely enjoy being in Katy’s head as well as Daemon’s.

Amazing beginning; amazing ending. I, like many others I know, wish for novellas or something, which would be nice, but I’m sure Armentrout would like to move on from the series. It still ended beautifully and is definitely one of my FAVOURITE YA SERIES of all time. After Harry Potter of course.

  1. YASSS!! SOMEONE UNDERSTANDS! Lol I had a love/hate relationship with the end too. Because for some reason I expected it to go on even though I knew it had to end. After I finished Opposition I was just laying down thinking “what was I doing with my life before Lux and what am I going to do now??” but yess! dI’m glad someone likes it as much as I do

    1. Thank you for your comment, luvleyyazzy~
      I knew people would understand my love for this series. I really want it to be a movie or TV show like…so badly…. I’m not into too much YA but this was just right 😀
