Something was missing with this book. I liked it, but I didn’t love it. It couldn’t hold a flame to Onyx and barely to Obsidian. Maybe it was the fact that the sexually frustrated banter between Daemon and Katy was blatantly absent. Maybe because the action factor was majorly lacking, Dee was annoying, and you-know-who was so hard-headed and kept wanting to do stupid, irrational stuff (though he had a perfectly good reason to act this way).
IDK. I just wasn’t feeling it.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m hooked like a trout on the Lux series. Nothing could make me stop reading it. I just wanted so much more from this book and didn’t get it. Katy was cool as usual, though her little jealous rants were annoying. Daemon had done nothing to betray her trust, so I was like, WTF Katy? She had always been pretty confident (to me), but in Opal she was a much more unsure Katy. Maybe this was supposed to reflect the circumstances and how everything was so up in the air. Again, IDK, but I didn’t like it. Daemon was sweet and that was a nice change though I missed snarky, flippant Daemon like crazy. He didn’t make nearly enough conceited and/or blush-worthy comments to me. And the kissing. They never stopped making out! Every chance they got. Lips. Attached. I rolled my eyes a few times.
Wow. I feel like I haven’t said anything good about this book. It was good, just not what I expected. I almost feel like nothing happened really, not until the end. The ending was...shocking. I can only imagine the things that are going to happen in Origin. Let’s just say Daemon is about to act a straight-up fool and I can’t wait.
