Opal was another crazy ride. This time you felt a something-bad-is-going-to-happen-isn’t-it vibe throughout the whole book! I was just waiting for it!
So in Opal there are some characters that are back. Some we are happy about, others not so much. There’s a lot of working-with-the-enemy schemes going on, which doesn’t help the awful foreboding feeling that we get. I did like that there were a lot of scenes with everyone together. Even if we don’t like everyone, it’s still a cool, fun dynamic.
I again didn’t hate Daemon in this one. Even Katie didn’t frustrate me all that much! And I certainly loved seeing them alone together. I can’t deny they have lots of sparks. There’s even an intimate moment between the two that left me saying “WOWZERS!” I was glad I was reading this book along with Ginger so I could straight up ask her “Did Daemon just…?” Sometimes a girl needs to make sure she’s not making stuff up in her head. Haha.
The ending though. OH MY GAAAWD, that ending! All I could say was NOOOOOOO!! And then my heart broke when Daemon utters what we’ve all been waiting to hear. TEARS!! With that said, I’ll be very anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.

No one is like Daemon Black.
When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well… There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.
But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.
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.
