Control Update

Hey to all you Zeuorian fans,

Control is written and done. I had a couple of beta readers look over it and like what they read with exception of a few issues they pointed out.

Anyway, you’re going to enjoy the new story twists in regards with Tyler , which will lead into the next book Hunted. For you die hard romantics who didn’t feel I spent enough time on Lexi’s and Everett’s romance, this book is truly the beginning of their relationship. You’ll get to see Lexi’s feelings grow stronger toward Everett and get to know Everett even better.

Book 1 Awakening, was never intended to be a typical romance per se where boy meets girl and they fall for each other, but something keeps them apart until the end. Rather it was Lexi’s journey from being closed off and reluctant to even talk to anyone other than Angie to opening up, making friends and finally accepting to date someone. Although, I found some of the Goodreads reviews about her falling for every guy and kissing them quite interesting, especially since I didn’t write the story that way.

Separate news, I’m working on Her Watcher (the extended version of Awakening) where you get to see Scott’s POV of Awakening. Definitely a more romantic suspense compared to Awakening, which is a thriller. In the story you get to see what really happened behind Lexi’s back. As well as the other side of Tyler, The Community, Everett and his past with Lexi.

Well that’s all for now.

Opposition Book Review

Opposition: A Lux Novel BOOK 5

by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Opposition Cover

Overview

The world changed the night the Luxen came, and now Daemon will do anything to save Katy…even if that means betrayal. For Katy, the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy them all. As it becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world crumbles 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.

My Review

I started to read the series, because a reviewer claimed my book The Zeuorian Awakening was a ripoff of Obsidian and I was curious to see if in fact the author plagiarized my book, which they didn’t. Then I decided to read book 2 and 3. I was going to give up on the series, but I’m a sucker for serials with cliffhangers. So I bought book 4 and 5 to see what happened to Katy.

I really had a hard time getting into this book. The whole alien invasion I had a difficult time with. As well as Daemon and Dawson are the only ones not controlled by the Luxen leader like Dee. Not once did they try to get word to Katy or Bethany of the situation.

Of course Katy does something stupid and gets caught. Her typical. Daemon must risk being considered a traitor and killed to save her, again. Then while surrounded by aliens who want her dead, they have sex. Ah, please. Talk about a filler.

Dawson, Daemon and Katy escape with DOD and Luc’s help. Dee stayed behind. She doesn’t want to feel anymore and likes being a drone. Okay.

Now they are staying with the DOD and helping to fight the aliens. All the while having sex. That was the point I skipped to the end. I had enough.

***spoiler alert***

Just as I suspected everyone survived and the bad aliens were taken care of by the Arum. Daemon and Katy now live together and go to college in Colorado. They are getting married soon. Dee has a beau and Dawson has a kid with Bethany. All is great in the world and they are also free of the DOD.

Only bad that came out of everything is that Katy’s mom died, which was no big deal to Katy or to me. Her character sort of disappeared after book 2 and any feelings for her disappeared as well.

Review Rating: 1 Stars out of 5

My Review

I started to read the series, because a reviewer claimed my book The Zeuorian Awakening was a ripoff of Obsidian and I was curious to see if in fact the author plagiarized my book, which they didn’t. Then I decided to read book 2 and 3. I was going to give up on the series, but I’m a sucker for serials with cliffhangers. So I bought this book to see what happened to Katy.

The book was interesting, but I still had a hard time believing the DOD or Dadelus, would kidnap and torture previously human now alien-hybrids. Like I said in my review of Opal, I have my conspiracy theories like many people do, but I also don’t think a secret government group would be stupid and kidnap a person and then ask them to join their cause. They would ask them first so the person doesn’t immediately think they are bad and refuse to help.

I also had an issue with Katy fighting the secret group. It was a little stupid. She knows there is no escaping. They are going to spray her with stuff that makes her suffer if she refuses to cooperate. But she does it when a doctor tries to exam her and take blood.

I was surprised Dee pretty much wrote Katy off. She no longer cared about her. And Dawson after Daemon and Katy risked everything to help him get Bethany free, tried to stop him from saving Katy.

***spoiler alert***

After Luc sprung Daemon and Katy out of area 51, Dee, Dawson, Mathew, Ash and the gang show. They finally decided to try and save them. Of course this is after they graduated high school 4 months later, which they rub into Katy’s and Daemon’s faces. Daemon gets a warm welcome and Katy a so so one. Still the outcast, but Dee finally forgives her for Adams death. Please. It never was her fault in the first place.

Like the other books just when they thought everything was safe another friend turns on them–Mathew. He was the one who sold out Dawson and Bethany. They run for their lives and make a public speculation on TV to keep from getting capture. It still amazes me why that hadn’t happened earlier with so many hybrids escaping the DOD.

The book ends with an alien invasion and Daemon, Dee and Dawson joining them while leaving Katy, Bethany and origins behind.

Yet again I skipped reading half the book to bypass the boring parts and find out what happened at the end.
