Synopsis: 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…
Okay, after I finished Obsidian I immediately started to read Onyx. I tried to take my time reading because at this point I only had the first three books. I ordered the next ones off of Amazon but it obviously takes a while for them to come. I didn't want to finish the third book (Opal) and not have the next one (even though that ended up happening anyways). So, I tried to read as slowly as I could which didn't really go as planned. I finished Onyx faster than I'd finished Obsidian. I tried to take breaks while reading in attempt to read slower but I ended up not being able to put the book down.
It was frustrating to see Katy think Daemon's attraction for her was only from the connection they shared after he healed her. In this book we learned more about the connection between Daemon and Katy and what it meant for both of them. We are also introduced to a new character, Blake. He starts to train Katy in an effort to help her gain control over her new power. Daemon is automatically suspicious of Blake. Not to mention that Katy goes places with Blake to try to make herself feel normal. She later finds out that Blake is a hybrid, like her, and not human like she thought he was.
It was refreshing to see Katy not perfect. I think there are so many characters in books made to be perfect so people can look up to them. In Onyx we see Katy having trouble making decisions, trouble remaining honest, and trusting people too much.
Another great book from Jennifer L Armentrout!
