My review of Onyx

Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Release Date: August 14, 2012
Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon | The Book Depository

Onyx (Lux, #2)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.

- Read Obsidian before you read Onyx! - 

Onyx is the second book in the much-loved Lux series. Action, mystery, romance and a whole load of aliens. Be prepared for another dose of Jennifer L. Armentrout's awesomeness!

In Obsidian, Katy met Dee and Daemon, brother and sister with a dangerous secret. Now, in Onyx, Katy's relationship with the two siblings is stronger than ever, especially her all-too-hot relationship with Daemon. But Katy and Daemon are connected, due to a deadly battle against the arum, and Daemon is determined to prove that what he feels for Katy has nothing to do with the unearthly tie.

To make matters worse, the Department of Defense is snooping, and if then find out that Katy and Daemon are linked...then she's a goner. 

If you thought Obsidian was hot, Onyx will melt you into one big gooey puddle. 

In this engrossing sequel, we see that Katy has grown into a stronger person. She is ready to take risks and make her own decisions, even if it means ignoring Daemon's warnings. Katy and Daemon made me laugh so much! The two are just the cutest couple. It was interesting to watch Katy deny her attraction to gorgeous Daemon Black, because she always failed miserably at lying to his face.

I think you will be shocked to here that Daemon is so much hotter in this book. Yes, yes, I thought it wasn't possible either! We see the more loving and caring side to him that we've all been waiting for. He even makes an appearance in one of Katy's In My Mailbox posts that, unsurprisingly, gets quite a few hits. 

I love Jennifer's writing so much and for those of you who haven't read any of her books then you should get them ASAP! She creates the hottest guys with the most entertaining of personalities. If your looking for a set of amazing books to read this summer then check out all of Jennifer's books.

Overall, Onyx is a very worthy sequel that will definitely satisfy fans of the first book and will keep readers captivated until the very end. The third book, Opal? I want you now.

- A big thanks to Doris for sending me her personal copy!
