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.

The ending killed me! -my reaction right after reading the book. And now, obviously that was just an exaggeration of my expression because One, I’m still alive. And Two, yeah, the first one is explanation enough. Lol. Enough with my antics and onto my review.

I’m not even sure how to write my reaction over the book. I’m not even going to pretend that this review is for the benefit of everyone, because if I made it for that reason, then I will need to find that urge to explain the story to you. So if you’re expecting that now then you can stop reading this because I really won’t be retelling the summary of what happened but all i would type here are my reactions and a whole lot onslaughts. Just kidding.

Okay, I’m gonna say that the book was not all happy unicorns and candies, because its not. It’s also not made up of action scene after action adventure just like in the Lorien legacies (another alien YA scifi story that i love. Those books were made of steel and action.) But even if Opal was not that, it was still made of awesome. As usual, and not to be shocked of, Jennifer Armentrout’s writing is remarkable and just plain funny and entertaining with the kind that still holds water. She’s and amazing and one talented writer. And that fact could be backed up by her New York Times best seller of books. Seriously. Entangled is lucky to have her. And also Spencer Hill Press. I know those publishing houses made lots of money from her books. And oh! The first of the lux series is going to be a movieeee!!!! 🙂
Moving on. Katy and Daemon are a couple now. I thought I was going to be disappointed that they won’t have that catfight arguments while having deep buried emotions swirling beneath those pretend jabbing against each other. Okay, not really pretend because its true Daemon pissed Katy off a lot. It maybe has something to do with his cocky attitude. But no, I was surprised to still find them entertaining because they still argued a lot…but also made put a lot. Lol. It was certainly different from the last two books Obsidian and Onyx.

I was just confused with where their conspicuous hiding will lead them now that Dawson is here and the horrible feeling that things were just brewing and not even started. Everything was calm all the time and it brought a sense of urgency to me and lots of panic of why there wasn’t anything happening??!

Of course things still happened and there were new characters and new revelations which were all mysterious and I didn’t trust those things if my life depended on it.

The whole point of it all is that this book is somewhat a filler, but a great one at that! And I just want to read Origin already. Because I doubted all the things I trusted that I may be standing on the wrong team.

5 Stars
