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…
Ever had that feeling that you were going to an amusement park you’ve never been to before and you don’t know the rides but you want to ride them all? And then you get into this super huge and long rollercoaster ride that hypes you on adrenaline at the beginning?
Well.. reading Onyx is like that only you’re already going forward in the rollercoaster.
Okay, the covers haven’t improved much and yes it’s still about aliens but don’t let it fool you. You’re missing out on A LOT if you’re still not reading this. Besides, if you haven’t read Obsidian yet and you’re reading this review, it might be wise to turn back. This will contain minor spoilers :p
In Onyx the story continues from where Obsidian left off. Daemon and Katy are connected somehow after he pulled her back from death and healed her to perfection. Suddenly, they can hear each other’s voices in their hands and communicate via their minds as well as vocally.
Also, Katy begins to change. Things explode at random around her or go wrong when she’s thinking of doing something. But she doesn’t want to trouble Daemon with it, so she turns to the new kid who seems to have it all figured out. Blake helps her train her newfound abilities and prepares her for whatever the DOD, the government controlled company that keeps a close eye on the lux, has planned for Daemon and his friends/family.
But everything blows up in her face. By not trusting Daemon, Katy makes a fatal mistake. One she cannot undo.
And to make things even more complicated, Katy meets an unexpected person whom the world believed to be dead. And that could mean Daemon’s dead brother might not be so dead after all.
The hits in this book will literally not stop until you finish the ride.
It’ll take you up real slow only to drop you down fast, shooting you forward into another spin/loop etc. until you’re at the last page and still feel the rush of adrenaline and the thrill of the ride. And I wanted to go again. So I picked up part three immediately after and I recommend everyone to do the same.
