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…


My Review:
Amazingness again!!!! Jennifer L. Armentrout has totally blown me away with Onyx! I didn't think anything would top Obsidian, but Onyx took me on an amazing ride that I couldn't put down.

Where to begin? I absolutely love the main character, Katy (otherwise known as Kitten by Daemon). She definitely has grown up so much from the first book and has become so much more independent then the first time we meet Katy in book one. As the story progresses I felt that she becomes a much more stronger female lead and figures out who she really is. The plot of Onyx was so awesome! Definitely more action packed then the first book which I loved! Some really awesome surprises are revealed that I didn't see coming..which I loved. The fight scenes were really fun to read about..especially since Katy gets more involved in the action. The new characters we meet in this book are really great..and add some great twists to the story! The end of this book AH. Such a cliffhanger!!!! I really don't want to give anything away but you will all be blown away by the ending!

The romance in this book is AWESOME. In Onyx we get to see a totally different side to Daemon..a much more softer side then the first book which was interesting to see. Of course, he always has the best lines, and is soso irresistible! From poking Katy in the back, to crashing in on her date, Daemon is just amazing. He is so swoon worthy, and gorgeous of course! What I love the most about him is that sometimes he can be a bad boy, but deep down he is a softie at heart and cares about his family and Katy so much. He will do anything to protect Katy which is so sweet. I really liked the scenes were he kind of bared his soul to Katy, and especially the times where Katy also bares her soul to him.

Overall, I LOVED Onyx and I can't wait for the next book I am already a huge Jennifer L. Armentrout fan so this book makes me love her work even more. If you haven't read Obsidian...go read it! won't regret it :)
