Blog Tour: Opposition by Jennifer L Armentrout

The much-anticipated conclusion to the national, bestselling Lux series, OPPOSITION by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Entangled;8/5/14), will hit bookstores this summer and readers will finally learn the fate of Katy, Daemon and the world  as we know it in this Dawson’s Creek-meets-Roswell-romantic-thrill ride.

For anyone who has yet to embark on the out-of-this-world series, it’s about an alien colony (all of whom are spectacularly hot) finding refuge on Earth only to find out that their rival planet's residents are as well—and the existence of both is being kept under wraps by the US government. What follows is a battle between good and evil for galaxy domination with a few humans getting folded into the mix, one of whom just may be taking on some out-of-this world powers after helping rescue her alien friends from their foes. And yes, there's an alien-human sexy love dynamic as well.

With more than 1 million copies in print and the movie rights to Obsidian (book 1) sold to a major studio, aliens are certainly looking to become the new vampires, and Daemon, the new black.

The print edition of Opposition includes a bonus novella, Shadows, a series prequel.

ABOUT OPPOSITIONKaty 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.

Excerpt:
{ Daemon }

Wrath tasted like a pool of blood in the back of my mouth, and I was unable to see or think past it. There were a lot of things I could deal with, that I could force myself to tolerate and I could wait on. But him touchingher like that not only crossed the line, it blew a freaking hole in it.
Shifting into my true form, I felt the immediate bombard- ment from others of my kind, their needs and wants, rising in a vicious cyclone, but my rage overwhelmed them. Catching Quincy the second before he could shift, I flung him into the far wall, but this time with a hell of a lot more effort than when I found him in her room.
Body say hello to wall.
He crashed into it without changing. Plaster cracked and gave way under the impact. White dust flew into the air. Quincy started to slide down the wall. That was the funny thing about the Luxen. They hadn’t realized yet just how weak they were in their human forms.
I was on him before he hit the floor.
Slamming my fist into his chin, I reveled in the cracking sound of his head knocking backward. Nowhere near done, I hauled him up and then practically put him through the wall, all the way to the supporting beams.
Then I let go.
Quincy went down, crumpled on the floor, flickering in and out like a squashed lightning bug. Shimmery blue liquid seeped out from behind his head, and as I stared down at him, debating on whether or not I wanted to throw him like a foot- ball through a nearby window, I realized just how quiet the room was.
Leaving Quincy, or whatever was left of him, I shifted out of my true form as I turned around. I might have maybe gone too far with that, but there was nothing I could do about it now.
Rolland arched a brow. “Well, then . . . ”
Chest rising and falling sharply, I spared him a quick glance
before turning to where she stood. Her hands were gripping the back of a chair as she stared at me, her gray eyes so big and so wide on her pale face.
Our gazes locked, and I could tell by the stricken look on her face that she wasn’t sure what to make of any of this. There was confusion and raw hurt and fury pouring from her, choking the air, choking me.
It took several moments to slow my roll. I got my breathing in check as I forced myself back to Rolland, meeting his curious stare. “I told him not to touch her before and that if he did, I would kill him. I’m not a liar.”
Sadi’s gaze flicked to where Quincy lay. “He’s not dead.” “Yet,” I promised.
A look of anticipation, of pure eagerness, swept over Sadi’s
face as she wet her bottom lip. “Why would you care if he touched her or not?”
There were a thousand endless reasons. “She belongs to me.” I could practically feel the daggers she was driving into my back, but I didn’t look at her. “No one else. It’s as simple as that.”
Rolland eyed me intently, and then he pushed off the desk. Straightening, he clapped his hands. “Everyone. Listen up.”
I stiffened, knowing this could be real bad.
“You.” He motioned to another Luxen. “Get Quincy out of here. Let me know if he wakes up.”
Part of me hoped he did so I could beat the shit out of him again.
To Sadi, Rolland pinned her with a sharp look. “Take this young . . . lady over here and make sure she gets cleaned up and that’s she comfortable.”
Oh hell no. I opened my mouth, but Sadi snapped forward, her eyes glittering with malicious pleasure. “Of course,” she said, casting a half smile in my direction as she all but bounced past me. I stepped forward to intercept and make good use of the window.
“You,” Rolland directed at me, “will stay right here.” Then to Dee, he smiled. “It’s late. I find that being in this form makes me incredibly hungry. Would you get something for me to eat?”
Dee hesitated, but then nodded. Turning, she shot me a worried look as she hurried out of the room to do Rolland’s bidding.

  1. *Gasp* Is Daemon faking being completely douchy to Katy? I hope that's what's going on here.

  2. Ladies, I guess this is the moment we've been waiting for -- an excerpt in Daemon's POV.
