Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout | Book Review #29


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 out 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 Arun 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….

First off, you should know; if you don’t know already, that Onyx is the second book in a five-part series.

I am devouring these books so quickly, holy crap. I don’t think there will be much to this review because the story just progresses so quickly! 

In this fast paced, heart wrenching addition to the Lux series, we meet new people and see sides to characters that we only got a glimpse of in Obsidian. The story in Onyx moves pretty quickly. I have a feeling that all of these books are one-sitting read. I just can’t get enough of these characters!!

With this sequel we be introduced to more characters. These characters will be very problematic, and very annoying. I wanted to punch Blake in the face. Holy crap.

While we did meet new characters in Onyx, we also see new sides to the characters we already know. With Daemon, we see a side of him that we only got glimpses of in Obsidian. And with Katy, I mean, she goes through so much in this book. She learns new things about herself, but she’s also more distant with her mom as well.

It turns out, that I don’t really know what to think of Onyx. So freaking much has happened in this book; I literally couldn’t put it down. I just know that we’re going to see more of characters we don’t want to in the next books…. — Before I started reading Onyx, I actually wrote down a few suspicions that I had. And it turns out, this book turned out to be pretty predictable. Now, I’ll save my predictions for myself, so you can read the book with your own thoughts and feelings.

Onyx is a great addition to the Lux series and I am really excited to read the next book, Opal!
