WARNING: There are spoilers from the previous books and a lot of fangirling in this review.



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. 

(This synopsis is from Goodreads.)



The more I read, the more I’m falling in love with this series!

So much goes on in this book. You thought the second book had a lot of turmoil? Well guess what, there’s more!

A lot of important discoveries happen in this book. Some good, some bad, depending on how you look at it.

All the characters went to senior prom together and it was the cutest thing ever. I wanted to squeal so loudly when I read that part because I couldn’t contain my inner fangirl.

Daemon and Katy’s relationship gets more serious in this book (and it’s cute as heck). Sorry guys. I just… GAH! I love them so much I can’t even explain it in words!

What I’ve noticed throughout the Lux series is that the title of the book is something new that the character(s) discovers. Whether that is emotions, information, or physical objects (mainly physical objects), so far all the books are named after the main thing that Katy discovers in that book.

This book was no exception.

There were a lot more death than I expected. To be completely honest, I didn’t expect anyone to die.

At least Daemon and Katy still have each other.



Daemon Black

Still his usual, cocky self.

Katy “Kat” Swartz

Still her badass self. Funny thing is, I don’t tend to like a lot of female protagonists in YA books, but I actually genuinely like Katy. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this in previous reviews, but I would love to have Katy as a friend.

Dee Black

She avoids Katy and blames her for everything that happens. Katy tries to make things up with her, but Dee won’t hear any bit of it.

Dawson Black

I don’t blame him for how he acts in this book. He’s been through a super tough time.

Blake Saunders



Not sure if I like him or not. He’s the type of person to help others when it benefits them, even though it looks like he’s doing it because he “cares” about the person. I don’t know. He’s hard to figure out.



I give this book 4.5 / 5 BBC Sherlock heads. I love this series so much and Daemon + Katy are my OTP.



Until next time….

    To be honest, I was not really looking forward to reading Lux. I always thought it was something like Twilight with aliens instead of vampires. However, your review, and a few other review make me want to pick it up.

      It’s so much better than the Twilight series! The covers may look a bit cheesy, but the story is amazing. 😀
