Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarre connection. I’ve sworn him off even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But against all common sense, I’m falling for him. Hard.

Our relationship issues aren’t out biggest problem…

The Department of Defense is here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And when a new boy shows up a school with a secret of his own, things get complicated fast. I need to choose between my own instincts and Daemon’s.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. Daemon’s never going to stop searching until 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.


Can we just take a moment to take in the hotness of the guy on the cover? ... Okay I'm done.. for now! Seriously though, I didn't think it was possible to be that hot, until now. *Swoons*

Anyways, I not one of those people who are super fans of Jennifer L.Armentrout, she's an alright author I just don't see everyones obsession. The Lux series is by far the best series I have read by her so far. I really enjoyed Obsidian and was quite looking forward to Onyx to see where Katy and Daemon's relationship went.

I was a bit let down in that department, I really want Daemon and Katy to get together and stop preventing the inevitable, them gettin together and actually dating. I was frustrated with them and many of the other characters for other reasons during the book. Like Dee, Blake, Ash, Katy's mom and the list goes on.

I like and dislike that Katy is a book blogger, for me and I'm sure others reading this you could connect with her on that level. But other who are just reading and don't know much about book bloggers and the blogesphere would probably be missing out on portions of the book.

Now on to the things I enjoyed about the book, I loved Daemon's looks not so much on his personality, I wouldn't want to date him if I had the chance. I loved the aliens that Jennifer has created, they are very different and unique. The climax points in the plot are very well done, and action packed. Which will in no doubt keep readers interested and glued to the pages. I liked the addition of the new character, Blake, maybe even a bit more the Daemon as a love interest. But as the story progressed I sort of lost interest in him, you'll see when you read the book.

Onyx is a great addition to the Lux series, readers should expect hot and steamy moments mixed in with action and nail biting suspense. Onyx is the perfect summer read that should not be missed. Daemon is always looking to recruit some more girls who will swoon over him, in fact he encourages it, so read the book! And oh man what a cliffhanger you are left with...

  1. I haven't read this series yet- but it does sound good. I think it is interesting that one of the main characters is a book blogger. I like how you descibed it as the perfect summer read. Thanks for sharing- great, honest review.
