Book Review: Opposition (Lux #5)

Opposition

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can’t believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

Now you can see them all together.

We last left Katy and Daemon as they just escaped from the research center in Arizona and after they revealed to the world that they are aliens in Las Vegas. Now, they are on the run and looking to not get caught and taken in.

Reading a series’ finale is bittersweet. Especially if it’s something you love. Especially if the book is about Daemon Black. Sigh. I’ve waited for this for a year, I believe, and I’ve read it for I think three days more or less. I really took my time. I don’t want to say goodbye to the series. Just yet. Sniff. Anyway, I was quite surprised how the story turned out. When I’ve finished Origin, I was thinking how Jennifer would pull off the finale. I’m scared for her actually. In most cases, alien invasion is not something that you could easily throw in without thinking on how you can come back to that. Surprisingly, Jennifer did a great job! This is one epic series! I can’t think of any other way this series could have ended. This is just so perfect. In everything. The writing. The twists. The resolution. The romance. The friendship. The villains. The epilogue. Oh the epilogue. Did I already mention THE Romance? Ha! Ha! This never failed to surprise me all the freaking time.

I’m not pretty sure how to begin with this as I’m so overwhelmed about the idea of having a book review about City of Heavenly Fire. That familiar mixed emotions again. Sure, I’m so familiar with it, but still, heartbreaking. Heartbreaking that this would be the last book. Though I know there would be another series that Clare is doing and it’s like an extension of this; I can’t help to be woeful. On the other hand, I’m so happy that I’ve got to read the last installment of this series. Finally. As in, at last. I’m being bipolar again, I guess. Yeah. I know. Can’t help it.

I love how the book is written. It is not written as I expected for it is more fascinating. It feels like that you’ve been taken away to a dimension that’s so real. So real I forgot that it’s from a book. I love the Shadowhunter world. Every little details of it; that I want to have runes tattooed on me too. This series will always be an obsession to me. A favorite. I adore how Clare have written everything because the series is beyond amazing. Yeah, I have my own share of disappointments from the previous books, but this book have rubbed them out.

Book Review: CRESS (The Lunar Chronicles #3)

I have finished reading the book, I think two weeks ago. Since I’ve started reading White Hot Kiss by Jennifer Armentrout, I’ve set aside doing the review, but I can’t just skip it or my life would not be completed. Exaggerated. Hah! I might include some spoilers on this if I can’t contain my enthusiasm about the book so there, if you haven’t read the book.. you’ve been warned.

Cress

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker – unfortunately, she’s being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she’s just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is splintered. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price than she’d ever expected. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai, especially the cyborg mechanic. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.
