Goodreads Description
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.

My Thoughts

The third book in the Lux series picks up right after the end of the last one, so if you haven't read the first two books I would strongly suggest you not to read this review until you catch up. I will be spoiling a lot since I wanted to talk about this the first time I read this and I didn't have anyone to talk about it with. So much happened in this book so I will try to only talk about a few things.

At the end of Onyx Dawson comes home but as can be expected he isn't the same as he used to be. His family and friends are having a hard time accepting that. Katy is the only one who follows the moment whenever she encounters him and tries to get everyone else, especially Daemon to see things from his point of view. Although a lot didn't seem to happen, I really enjoyed the relationship between Dawson and Katy. They were very supportive of each other when it was needed and Katy help Dawson open up so he could reconnect with his family.

I didn't like how Dee didn't want to be friends with Katy. Katy did make some bad choices but everything that happened wasn't completely her fault. Even though Katy wasn't the one that decided not to tell Dee about her new powers in Onyx and Katy didn't kill Adam Dee still blamed her for everything. Dee used to be one of my favorite characters but after this I was really irritated with her.

Oh yeah, and Blake is back.

Not only does he come back after everything that happened in Onyx. He blackmails Daemon and Katy into helping him get his Luxen. Then he tells Dawson so they really have no choice if they don't want Dawson to go running off and get captured again. I never did like Blake and how he acted during this book didn't help his case at all, especially when he was sneaking into her room and sleeping with her at night. I didn't even feel sorry for him when she did. I never believed Blake was on their side and I was right.

I think Luc is one of my new favorite characters. When he was introduced I thought he was creepy and there was more to his story than he was telling. Since I'm rereading the series I already know what it is and I'm not talking about it until it comes up. If you haven't read this series you should be giving him this look.

The last thing I want to talk about is Daemon. So much has changed in Daemon and Katy's relationship by this book. Daemon becomes that almost perfect boyfriend that every girl wishes for. He isn't perfect because to be honest that would be boring. Daemon makes it very clear that Katy is the only one he wants. There arguments over little stuff was frustrating but that was because I felt like I was the one arguing with Daemon over those things. Everything that happened between them made the relationship seem real. My heart broke for Daemon at the end Opal!

I'm always looking for people to discuss with, so if you have already read this book/series or you are currently reading it feel free to leave me a comment and we can talk! I'm also thinking about starting one of Jennifer's other series so if anyone has any recommendations for me, leave those in the comments as well!

I was trying something new with the gifs, trying to break up the paragraphs. Do you like it it or is it too much?
