Onyx By: Jennifer Armentrout

Five Stars: Perfect

Goodreads Summary:

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…

If Obsidian was great, Onyx was breath-taking. It was more intense, more brutal, and more surprising.

Onyx was funny. There's witty banter between Katy and Daemon. And it's better that Obsidian's.

Katy is witty and feisty. She lives up to the nick-name, Kitten. She's fierce and protective. Sadly, not everyone can be perfect. This was one my favorite aspects of this novel. If you don't give someone flaws, you can't relate to them. Therefore, you dislike them. She made some big mistakes, but doesn't ignore them. They shape her into a better person. Katy was always strong, but she's a fighter, now.

We've all seen Daemon's protective and charming side. But now, Jennifer shows a new part of him. It's a sweet, sweet side of him that not a lot of people have seen before.

Blake Saunders is the new guy. He's mysterious with secrets. Lots of them. I didn't like him at all. Well, at first, I sort of liked him. But then, when the secrets got out, I hated him. I can't say anything without spoilers.

The plot was well developed. It placed everything perfectly. We don't get a filler novel, like so many books.

And the ending. Talk about a cliffhanger!

The wait for Opal will kill me. If its even half of Onyx, I'll love it.

  1. Although these are not my type of books, if they were, after reading such articulate reviews, I would. I believe your blog will catch on and you'll have scores of books to critique.
