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.

"Armentrout keeps the momentum rolling with her third Lux entry. [Fans] will be enthralled from beginning to end. Katy and Dameon's heat sparks as the intrigue increases, too. Friends and enemies take sides, and the ending will leave [fans] yelling." (RT Book Reviews)
I've read the whole series and LOVE it, so I was so excited when I found this on audible. I decided to start with Opal, and am I the only one surprised that his name is pronounced Demon??!! I always assumed that since it's spelled Daemon, that it was pronounced Damon. I don't like that his name is Demon!!! That has bad connotations! Not like the hero at all! I absolutely hate that his name is Demon on audio! I won't listen to the rest of them because to me he's NOT a Demon!!! Just ruined it for me. What a horrible name for such a charming, funny, all around great guy. I will stick to the books.
I love to multi-task with Audible!
This book kept me on the edge of my seat, it's full of intense intrigue. The tension builds and at times I found myself holding my breath! The ending was such a cliffhanger, I went right into the next book of the series!
I think they are dragging out the story a bit. I don't think this needed to be separated.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a very good addition to the series. I was pleased with both Daemon and Katy. Katy has gotten past her TSTL issues in the previous book and I'm liking her better again. Daemon has continued to improve and is a great hero now. Together, they do pretty well at their relationship even if they keep getting interrupted when they're trying to get more intimate.
The action plot is interesting and fast moving. It seems there's always something going on and there's a lot of suspense because it's hard to know who to trust and what motivations are making people act the way they do. The big push in this story is Dawson (who ended up being alive in the previous book) being desperate to save Bethany from the DoD. Because of Dawson and some other influences, the Luxen and Katy are forced to move against the DoD. They have some success but the story ends in a big cliffhanger (with Katy in terrible danger) so we'll have to wait to see how things work out.
I enjoyed this story very much. I was pleased with Katy and Daemon and how their relationship is progressing. I know this is a YA book but I'm glad that both Daemon and Katy have gained some maturity (although I've seen grown MCs acting just as bad in other books so I guess I can't complain too much). The story was well written with a plot that was interesting, suspenseful and kept me engaged through to the end. I'd recommend this story and I'm looking forward to seeing how it continues in the next book.
Finally Daemon and Katie get together. Their problems with DOD and Blake have only started. The ending is brutal no many times you read or hear it.
I love Daemon & Katy. Lots of action going down in this book! Something is constantly going on & you can't hardly put it down. I didn't think I'd be into this but clearly.....on to book 4!
I knew there would be a cliffhanger, but since the series is out, I also knew I didn't have to wait for the next one.
I would be happier if I didn't feel like the narrator was trying to speak to me in hushed tones all the time
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
This series just keeps getting better and better with every book. And the cliffhanger ending – WOW! I both love and hate Jennifer Armentrout for her incredible endings. This book was definitely more intense than the first two as emotions run high with the return of Dawson and the hunt for Beth. I don’t want to give away any spoilers – so I’ll just say this is another amazing story by a very talent author.
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.
