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…
Onyx...what can I say about this book. Well I kinda shouted at Jennifer L Armentrout on Twitter that she was insane because of what she did to me. Her reply to me was the classic O_O. Even Wendy Higgins, author of Sweet Evil, took time out of her busy day to give me a Twitter tissue! It’s not a cliff-hanger per se, it was more of an REALLY??? After all that you put me through in this book you end the story like that? Apparently out of all of my Starbooks friends I had the worst reaction! Except for Kim she reacted the same way!
Other than the ending the entire story was better than I could hope for! Those of you who did not like Daemon in Obsidian (I know they do exist! I was so shocked), do not fear! You will see a completely different side to this sexy, chocolate-melting-in-mouth, delicious, dangerous, and awesome alien. I decided to stop there because there are just SO many words to describe the perfectness that is Daemon! He turns out to be more swoon-worthy in Onyx and I didn’t even think it was possible.
Daemon tries throughout most of the book to prove to Katy that what he feels for her is real and not due to the connection they now have. And Katy, being her normal stubborn self, refuses to believe that it’s true because of how he treated her before. I get where she is coming from but because of the fact that it is Daemon, I just wanted to smack her upside the head and shake her at the same time whilst screaming in her face: “JUST ADMIT YOU LOVE HIM”. Except for my frustration with her, I realised how deeply I have missed this girl. She is one of the MOST awesome female leads ever. She makes me laugh every second when reading.
Now on to the mysterious guy Blake, that comes in rather unexpectedly. He automatically takes a liking to Katy and like Daemon, I then take an immediate disliking to this dude. I mean honestly just go away, no one likes you! And then Katy starts hanging out with him to ‘prove’ to herself that she does not really love Daemon, sigh.
Even throughout all the romancy angst there is also the problems of the alien variety and that was just so amazing! JLA shocked me so much during this book that I lost sense of direction. I never expected anything except only ONE thing and I was glad that it turned out to be true.
All in all this is honestly JLA’s best book ever! She has really outdone herself and if you do not read this book within the next 24hours you will regret it!
