Opposition (Lux #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
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.

I have been wanting to read Opposition because the Lux series has a special place in my heart. Jennifer is one of my favorite authors. I really connect with her main female characters and swoon over the guys. Their is usually banter, sarcasm, and humor right up my street. Though I will say I was nervous going into this one, because it is a series ender and I always feel like that. I know that I will have to say goodbye to characters that I adore.
Opposition started out with a bang and right where Origin left off. Except when she runs into Luxen they are violent, and have no regard for humans. And even Daemon and Dee were acting so much differently, and I couldn't tell if they were acting or if something about them changed when they were in their true form around the new Luxen.
This one was full of suspense, hotness, sarcasm, funny line, and plot twists. A few things I expected and others maybe I should have with the spinoff book (that I always loved). There were unexpected allies and some surprising enemies.
The way that the "bad" luxens took over and changed themselves was so sad and disturbing and set up for a death that I wished didn't happen, but understand why. The amount of power and the cities that were taken over and taken down was mind blowing, and the human and good luxen responses were so critical.
We also find out things about hybrid bonds, the Origins, and how it all works together. We see the return of some pretty awesome and pretty annoying and want to go all stabby on them.
Most of all, we have Daemon and his sweet and romantic lines to Katy, mixed in with his normal stick foot in mouth, being arrogant and not always thinking through what he is going to stay. In other words, just how we fell in love with him. Then there is Katy, loyal, stubborn, strong now thanks to the source and being. I adore seeing them together, they have some really hot and steamy moments that made me almost wish this was a NA book and we could read a little more. Also the moments when they share their strength, their joy, and their sorrow and sadness are enough to make me melt on the spot.
They have both grown so much over the series. By being loved romantically, to Kat accepting and learning about her powers to be able to kick some major butt. They've changed how they think about other "species" and they have stuck together through some of the hardest time.
Katy always will hold a place in my heart because she is a book blogger. She totally fits the character of a hard core blogger... She writes posts, she comments, she loves books. Now I know that things got crazy, but when they calmed down, she returned to what she loved.
I love every second of this story and wish that there was more in this world. The plot lines were all tied up well, I am just not ready to let D and K go.
My question to you, my lovely readers:
Could you team up with an enemy to defeat a bigger threat>
