07/29/14 Excerpt #7 Opposition's Blog Tour




Below is the excerpt for the Opposition excerpt tour. 

“Physically?” 
Jaw aching fiercely, I forced my chin up and down.
“Do you want more than that?”
I chose my words carefully. “What I want is a home where my family is safe, and only we can provide that. We come first.”
Rolland’s head tilted to the side, his gaze never leaving my face. “We do. And soon you will have that safe home for your family. It is already well under way.”
I wanted to ask exactly how it was well under way, because all I had seen from them so far was a lot of nasty killing. Tension-filled silence stretched out between us, and then he flicked his hand at the door. “Go do what you need to do, but please do not throw Sadi at anything. She has her uses that I might want to partake in later.”
Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I spun around and started for the door.
“Oh. And Daemon?”
Shit. I stopped, turning to him.
The damn smile was on his face, the same smile he’d worn when he addressed the public earlier in the day over the local news. When he’d told the city, or whatever was left of it, that everything would be fine, that mankind would prevail and a whole load more crap he’d actually made sound believable.
“Don’t make me regret not snuffing out your life in the clearing, because if you are a trataaie,” he said, slipping into our native tongue, “it will not be me you will fear, but the seni- traaie. You will not only lose your family, but that little girl up there will suffer a very slow and very painful death, and her horror will be the last thing you see. Inteliaaie?”
Back stiff, I nodded again. “I am not a traitor and I only answer to our leader. I understand.”
“Good,” he said, raising his hand. A remote flew from the desk into it. “Remember. No throwing Sadi.”
Dismissed with the bite-in-the-ass kind of warning, I left the office and nearly plowed right into my sister as I exited the atrium.
She gripped my arm, her fingers digging into my skin. “What in the hell were you thinking?”
“Aren’t you supposed to be getting him a late-night snack?”
Her eyes flashed. “You could’ve gotten yourself killed in there protecting her.”
I stared at her for a moment, searching for something, anything in her, and came up with nothing. I gently removed her hand. “I don’t have time for this.”
“Daemon.”
Ignoring her, I headed through a sitting area and then took the steps two at a time. When I reached the second landing, I could already hear the shouting coming from the third floor.
 

_____________________END EXCERPT SEVEN-------------------------------------
 

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.
