BLOG TOUR EXCERPT: OPPOSITION by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I am very honored to join some amazing bloggers on the OPPOSITION excerpt blog tour. The LUX series was my introduction to Jennifer L. Armentrout's writing and I have been a fan ever since. I cannot wait until next month when the final novel OPPOSITION will finally make it into my waiting hands but in the mean time we can all revel in the lovely excerpts that are meant to tease and tantilize.

 
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.

So, without further delay here is your OPPOSITION excerpt. Enjoy!!!


“I don’t know what to . . . to think.” There was a horrifying burn of tears crawling up my throat.
“This is all overwhelming for you, I imagine. The whole world as you know it is on the brink of great change, and you’re here and don’t even know my name.” The man smiled so broadly, I wondered if it hurt. “You can call me Rolland.”
Then he extended a hand.
My gaze dropped to it and I made no attempt to take it. Rolland chuckled as he turned and strolled back to the desk.
“So, you’re a hybrid? Mutated and linked to him on such an intense level that if one of you dies, so does the other?”
His question caught me off guard, but I kept quiet.
He sat on the edge of the desk. “You’re actually the first hybrid I’ve seen.”
 “She really isn’t anything special.” The redhead sneered. “Frankly, she’s rather filthy, like an unclean animal.”
As stupid as it was, my cheeks heated, because I was filthy, and Daemon had just physically removed me from him. My pride—my everything—was officially wounded.
Rolland chuckled. “She’s had a rough day, Sadi.”
At her name, every muscle in my body locked up, and my gaze swung back to her. That was Sadi? The one Dee said was trying to molest Daemon—my Daemon? Anger punched through the confusion and hurt. Of course it would have to be a freaking walking and talking model and not a hag.
“Rough day or not, I can’t imagine she cleans up well.” Sadi looked at Daemon as she placed a hand on his chest. “I’m kind of disappointed.”
“Are you?” Daemon replied.
Every hair on my body rose as my arms unfolded.
“Yes,” she purred. “I really think you can do better. Lots better.” As she spoke, she trailed a red-painted fingers down the center of his chest, over his abdomen, heading straight for the button on his jeans.
And oh, hell to the no. “Get your hands off him.”
Sadi’s head snapped in my direction. “Excuse me?”
“I don’t think I stuttered.” I took a step forward. “But it looks like you need me to repeat it. Get your freaking hands off him.” One side of her plump red lips curled up. “You want to make me?”
In the back of my head, I was aware that Sadi didn’t move or speak like the other Luxen. Her mannerisms were too human, but then that thought was quickly chased away when Daemon reached down and pulled her hand away.
“Stop it,” he murmured, voice dropped low in that teasing way of his.
I saw red.
The pictures on the wall rattled and the papers on the desk started to lift up. Static charged over my skin. I was about to pull a Beth right here, seconds away from floating to the ceil- ing and ripping out every strand of red—
“And you stop it,” Daemon said, but the teasing quality was gone from his words. There was a warning in them that took the wind right out of my pissed-off sails.
The pictures settled as I gaped at him. Being slapped in the face would’ve been better.

ARRRRRG!!! It just can't end there. The absolute torture. Want to read more? Then head on over to ONCE UPON A TWILIGHT blog tomorrow for the next excerpt




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.

  3. I just have to say that I do NOT like the way this is going... it makes me angry and scared that something terrible will happen at the end of this book. I will be having NONE of that. Why do authors like to make us hurt?
