Welcome to The Cover Contessa's stop on the Opposition excerpt tour!
Katy 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.

So, are you ready for this? Here it is!!!
There was a good chance I was going to punch someone else as I watched Sadi force her out of the room. The back of my neck tingled and my skin crawled as the door shut behind them, leaving me with Rolland and some dude whose name I refused to learn.
Rolland strolled around the desk and sat down. “Quincy was quite unhappy with you earlier. Said you . . . went after him because he was in the room with that . . . that girl.” Lean- ing back in the chair, he hooked one leg over the other. He gestured at the damaged wall. “Not that his anger seems to be a problem right now.”
I shrugged. “I’m sure he’s not the only one. And I don’t trust Sadi with her.”
His brows rose. “You don’t?” “No.” Folding his hands, he studied me. “I want you to answer a question for me, Daemon Black, and I want an honest answer.” My jaw ached from how hard I was grinding my molars. I didn’t need to be in this room. I needed to be wherever Sadi was at the moment, but I nodded. “Like I said, you’re a hard one to read. Not your brother or sister, but you’re different.”
“People do say I’m special.”
He laughed under his breath. “What does that girl mean to you, Daemon? And I do want an honest answer.”
My hands curled into fists. Time was ticking. “She belongs to me.”
“You’ve said that.”
I forced air into my lungs with a deep breath. “She’s mine and she’s a part of me. So, yeah, she means a lot, but what I feel for her doesn’t change anything here, with you.” I met his stare with my own unflinching one. “I support what you are doing.”
“Me?” He chuckled. “It’s not me you must support. I’m just a . . . busy bee, like you.”
“Do you still love her?” he asked, flipping the subject. “Do you still want her?”
What he was asking was if I had any human emotions left over since their arrival, or was I just as tuned in to the hive as the rest of them. “I want her.”
SQUEE!!! I cannot wait for this book!

Jennifer Armentrout, The #1 NY Times and USA Today bestselling author, lives in Martinsburg, West Virginia with her husband and Jack Russell Terrier Loki. When she’s not hard at work writing, she spends her time reading, working out, watching really bad zombie movies, pretending to write, and hanging out with her husband and dog.
Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class, where she spent most of her time writing short stories, which explains her dismal grades in math. Jennifer writes young adult paranormal, science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary romance. Obsidian, book one in the Lux series, has been optioned for a major motion picture and her Covenant Series (Spencer Hill Press) has been optioned for TV.
