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.
[Really sorry it’s late! Meant to schedule it yesterday, but we went to the beach. Because it’s SUMMER! And that’s actually what you’re SUPPOSED to do! lol]
The ending was just…WOW. Yeah. Well, this review has started off good, right?
Everyone has such different opinions of this book. Some didn’t like it that much, they thought that Katy was annoying, that Daemon was ridiculously protective. And then other people think that Katy was EXELLENT and a much better character than in ONYX. And that Daemon was swoon worthy.
I’m defiantly in the second group!
In Onyx, Katy was clingy and messed both Daemon and Blake about, but in Opal she matured and although she had moment where she doubted herself, (Hey! It happens!), I noticed a great improvement in her.
The romance side also got SERIOUS! As in, bow- chica- wow- wow. Some people mentioned that Katy and Daemon didn’t really have any hot romance scenes, I think the reason was because the Arum and DOD where getting closer. You can’t be worried about GETTING KILLED and then just start to make out. Although, I’ve heard it can be a great stress-reliever.
Let’s talk about the ending, because it was quite possibly the best ending in the history of endings.
I thought one of the characters DIED. They got left in a room with Arum and DOD agents…and then it ended. Just STOPPED in the middle of a heart stopping moment. Even worse, I thought that Opal was the LAST book. Pause to think of my poor heart. But it’s alright! There are going to be another TWO books! And the cover for Origin came out last week too! So…overall, I was happy.
Not really sure about the new cover though. It doesn’t really fit in with the other green covers. But it DOES have Daemon on it soo…YEAH!

I just love these books so much. Obviously.*sighs* Of course I’ll be preordering this one. *Paws computer screen.* It’s out in August, c’mon…it’s not too far away! *sobs*
All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true.
Well, mostly. When she’s not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write.
