The Lux series continues with the third installment of this riveting paranormal YA series.
No one is like Daemon Black. When he set out to prove his feelings for Katy, he wasn't fooling around. Doubting him isn't something she'll do again and now that they'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 loved. With help coming from the most unlikely source and Adam's death still lingering with those who loved him, friends will become the deadliest of enemies and the villains will no longer be clear. When each step they take in discovering the truth puts them in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more Katy realizes there is no end to what she's capable of. They won't turn back, even if the outcome will shatter their worlds forever.

Ok, yes, I confess. I'm another paranormal geek.
Parents, be warned!! This book series constantly involves kids going behind parents backs and participate in sex, drinking and even skipping classes. There is a fair amount of sex (talk AND participation), some drinking and skipping school. I realize it's "normal" in the high school era to be tempted by things like this, but these books do not hold back, which is why I am surprised they are YA (even if they are based in high school). Not only that, but the parents of these teenagers in this book are still barely involved in the kids lives, and the parents who are (Matthew, in this case) are comfortable with these kinds of decisions made by those he considers his own children. It's dangerous territory for young adults, in my opinion.
All that said...
I still enjoyed this series quite a bit, when I thought of it outside of the high school realm. The characters are built well, and I think they react in a "real" way when faced with tragedy, heartache and loss (real for high schoolers, especially... over reacting, high emotions and miscommunications). There is a lot of self discovery in this book; I appreciated how much Dee, Andrew and Ashley grew up.
I agree with another review I read about the ending. I was expecting this book to wrap up the series as well, and was quite surprised when it didn't! What a cliffhanger ending!! I am anxiously awaiting the next book, which I know will be a while.
This series starts out like other popular YA books, almost makes the reader feel like only the names have been changed. However, as the series progresses the plot gets better and takes on a life of it's own (instead of a borrowing from Twilight). The ending of Opal really makes the book worth the read.
The story is amazing.
The entire series, of course. The story, or saga, is not finished. The books feed on one another to build the story.
The last scene between Kat and Daemon. I won't go into detail since its a huge spoiler. I have no choice now to continue the series because that's no way to end a book. I'm frustrated, but that won't stop me from coming back for more. It's my favorite and least favorite scene. The writing was fantastic!
Seeing Daemon' s vulnerability with Kitten is especially moving.
Highly recommend the series in order starting with the prequel.
I have to say that this was a great book, but for some reason I thought it was the end of the series. I listened for the sweet wrap up to all the lose ends, but no, cliff hanger. More books to come later? when!?! How many more O minerals are there? This Series is interesting and could make a great movie some day. I do suggest it as a credit worthy read.
