About 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.
EXCERPT: Katy I still stared at Daemon, completely aware that everyone else except him was watching me. Closely. But why wouldn’t he look at me? A razor-sharp panic clawed at my insides. No. Thiscouldn’t be happening. No way. My body was moving before I even knew what I was doing. From the corner of my eye, I saw Dee shake her head and one of the Luxen males step forward, but I was propelled by an inherent need to prove that my worst fears were not coming true. After all, he’d healed me, but then I thought of what Dee had said, of how Dee had behaved with me. What if Daemon was like her? Turned into something so foreign and cold? He would’ve healed me just to make sure he was okay. I still didn’t stop. Please, I thought over and over again. Please. Please. Please. On shaky legs, I crossed the long room, and even thoughDaemon hadn’t seemed to even acknowledge my existence, I walked right up to him, my hands trembling as I placed them on his chest. “Daemon?” I whispered, voice thick. His head whipped around, and he was suddenly staring down at me. Our gazes collided once more, and for a second I saw something so raw, so painful in those beautiful eyes. And then his large hands wrapped around my upper arms. The contact seared through the shirt I wore, branding my skin, and I thought—I expected—that he would pull me against him, that he would embrace me, and even though nothing would be all right, it would be better. Daemon’s hands spasmed around my arms, and I sucked in an unsteady breath. His eyes flashed an intense green as he physically lifted me away from him, setting me back down a good foot back. I stared at him, something deep in my chest cracking. “Daemon?” He said nothing as he let go, one finger at a time, it seemed, and his hands slid off my arms. He stepped back, returning his attention to the man behind the desk. “So . . . awkward,” murmured the redhead, smirking. I was rooted to the spot in which I stood, the sting of rejection burning through my skin, shredding my insides like I was nothing more than papier-mâché. “I think someone was expecting more of a reunion,” the Luxen male behind the desk said, his voice ringing with amusement. “What do you think, Daemon?” One shoulder rose in a negligent shrug. “I don’t think anything.” My mouth opened, but there were no words. His voice, his tone, wasn’t like his sister’s, but like it had been when we first met. He used to speak to me with barely leashed annoyance, where a thin veil of tolerance dripped from every word.The rift in my chest deepened. For the hundredth time since the Luxen arrived, SergeantDasher’s warning came back to me. What side would Daemon and his family stand on? A shudder worked its way down my spine. I wrapped my arms around myself, unable to truly process what had just happened. “And you?” the man asked. When no one answered, he tried again. “Katy?” I was forced to look at him, and I wanted to shrink back from his stare. “What?” I was beyond caring that my voice broke on that one word. The man smiled as he walked around the desk. My gaze flickered over to Daemon as he shifted, drawing the attention of the beautiful redhead. “Were you expecting a more personal greeting?” he asked. “Perhaps something more intimate?” I had no idea how to answer. I felt like I’d fallen into the rabbit hole, and warnings were firing off left and right. Something primal inside me recognized that I was surrounded by predators. Don't miss the books that started it all...
Seeing Double In Neverland's Review:
4 out of 5 stars
Great conclusion to an amazing series. Jennifer's writing never disappoints! This was our favorite book series ever and we thought that this was a really good conclusion!
This book starts off shortly after Origin left off. The Luxen are being drawn to each other like a hive. Daemon, Dawson and Dee have left to join their kind. Katy, Bethany, Luc and Archer are left to wonder if they will return. Katy goes to comfort Bethany and finds out she is pregnant and not doing well without Dawson. Katy and Archer realize that she needs supplies so they decide to go and get what she needs, that is when the action begins.
While at the store the Luxen start to arrive and humans are being overtaken. Of course Archer wants Katy to listen to him and stay hidden but she doesn't listen. She is determined to save a small child at the store. She feels Daemon's presence and tries to go to him. She then sees Dawson and he knocks her out.
Katy then ends up in a world that is dangerous and that Daemon never wanted her involved in. Dee is mean to Katy and Katy wonders if it is an act. Daemon is cold and she wonders if it is for her protection. She wonders has he stopped loving her because he has left her. A new girl, beautiful and perfect has Katy in a tizzy. Katy gets claws!
We loved the banter between Daemon and Archer. Always humorous! The steamy-romantic scenes between Daemon and Katy were good. We wish there was more though. Happy to have Hunters return. We love Hunter!!! We get a new sexy Arum too! We loved the world of the Arum that Jennifer created. So dark and intriguingly beautiful.
We love Luc and we felt that he was an integral part of the series and we wish he was in the final book more! Sadi was such a big role in the beginning and so important as a female Origin and it was vague what happened to her. We wished the fighting scene at the end was more detailed. We did get emotions at the end and we got some retribution.
We liked how Katy started this series being a book blogger and loved reading. She had such a normal life but so much happens to her along the way. Katy's life becomes anything but normal. Among all that is happened we love that she makes sure to tie that back in the final book! Katy gets a little bit of a normal back in her life.
This book had a great conclusion and fans will be really happy! Our favorite book is still Origin, we loved the romance and action in that book!!! This book delivers, but we are still hoping for a spin-off someday! This book made us laugh, cry, smirk and frown. We loved every minute of it and are just sad it is done. We will cherish this series forever though.
