Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout | Book Review #35



‘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, be we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger…and they know it.

First off, you should know; if you don’t know already, that Opal is the third book in a five-part series.

Holy shit! So much happened in this book. I don’t think I will ever recover.

Like all the books before Opal (Obsidian [#1], Onyx [#2]) this book lived up to it’s hype, and then some. So much happened in this novel. I can’t even begin to describe  accurately what I want say. Lets start with how much hurt these characters have had in their life time. In this third book though? Doesn’t even live up to that. A lot of people get hurt in this book, some unintentionally. And you really can’t trust some of the characters, either.

I don’t know how Armentrout does it, but she manages to put like, 5 stories into one novel. Thats how I feel about these books. ..That’s what I mean by how much happens in these books! Armentrout manages to put so much action into one book, and it somehow works! Rarely are there ever hiccups in these books. I cant say how much (unless you’ve read them, then you know) for fear of spoiling the story.

Okay, so, Katy… man, she has it so rough! She sticks up for herself though. Katy is one tough cookie! She won’t back down in a fight if she knows she can help. She wont stay at home while the others fight out there. She believes that she can do just as much as the others can. Above all though, no matter what all of the characters have been through, no one has had it as bad as Katy. It’s like all the odds are working against Katy’s favour.

Katy’s relationship with Daemon gets steamy in this addition to the series. She and Daemon start to get really serious about each other, but with everything that happens, alone time between them are sparse and few between. They make the most of things though, and that’s what’s important.

That ending, though. Reading that last scene was so freaking heart-breaking! I’m confident though that things will work out. They have too!!

If you’d like to check out this book, you can find Opal on GoodReads!

Thanks for reading. Until next time,
