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.

Oh. My. Freaking. God.

I'm flitting between a state of shock and tears, it's so hard to put my emotions into words right now.
I honestly went into Onyx just hoping to get my Daemon fix but I am not kidding when I say that it just blew my face off. Onyx was so much more than just Daemon-hotness. Action-packed doesn't even begin to cut it as it was pure jaw-dropping amazingness!

For those of you who've read Obsidian, you're all probably dying to read Onyx (just like I was until yesterday) so you can get more Daemon-love and the sexy flirting/banter between Kat and him. Not unlike you, I went in looking for exactly that and all I can say is, I got all that and more. We get to see a completely different, deeper side of Daemon who finally, after years of looking after others, is going after something that he wants just for himself - Katy.
I have to say that after reading this book, I'm not just in lust with Daemon but utterly, head-over-heels in love with him too.

Like I've said a million times before, I love Jennifer's writing. She's witty, funny, entertaining and excellent at character development. Jen's worked her magic again in Onyx!
The whole time I was reading it, I could actually see Katy and Daemon change and grow into who they're meant to be, overcoming their flaws and learning from their mistakes. They've been through so much and Katy is definitely not just the simple, shy girl she was when she first came to Ketterman, nor is Daemon just the obnoxious alien next door who's in desperate need of anger-management . It's astounding how much they've affected each other's lives.
Onyx has just the perfect amount romance! There were moments that seriously left me breathless. This is love. It's not easy but they stick together through it all.

This time around, Jen has definitely proved that not only is she a natural at creating fantastic characters but also extremely talented at building an interesting, exciting world just like she did with her Covenant series. So many questions about the Luxens were answered while simultaneously exploring the consequences of what happened between Daemon and Kat at the end of Obsidian.

Onyx has literally left me craving for more Daemon, action and all things Lux. Intense and electrifying, Onyx is one heck of a sequel and I loved every moment of it.
