Book Review--Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout
So I finally got some time to read this! Yay!
Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…
Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.
Something worse than the Arum has come to town…
The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.
But then everything changes…
I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?
No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…
I wonder if I'm ever going to think one of Jennifer Armentrout books are just so so? Not likely!
Armentrout is just amazing in both her story-telling ability and her character interaction. Onyx is the second book in her Lux Series, and I've been waiting half a year to find out what the heck happened to Katy at the end of Obsidian.
Well, let's just say I was right about a few things and wrong about others. In this installment we get a lot of answers that were raised in Obsidian...like what exactly happened to Katy and what happened to Dawson and Bethany. Onyx was completely satisfying yet left me wanting more, as usual.
Daemon was in rare form throughout the book. He was still his jerk self, but we got to see a softer side to him. When Daemon loves, it's all the way, and I love that about his character.
I actually got a little bit annoyed with Katy in this book, but it wasn't much. The chemistry between Daemon and Katy continues to sizzle, but they are also developing into a heartwarming couple, which I'm happy about.
Once again, I couldn't get enough of Daemon and Katy and am looking forward to the next book. Ms. Armentrout is thankfully a writing machine, so I shouldn't have to wait too long. Onyx is well worth the read and if you are anything like me will leave you breathless.
