Read my review of Obsidian HERE.
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...
When I read Obsidian, I really liked the story and something about the way this alien race was introduced, it just got me hooked. And while in Obsidian, I wasn´t a total fan of Daemon because of his nature, his big ego and the way he treated poor Katy, but now in Onyx, he finally convinced me, because he lowers his defenses around her and reveals other side of him to Katy, but without ceasing to be sarcastic and have a huge ego. But it's official, now I'm definitely TEAM DAEMON!
But now is Katy with the one I have a problem and this is because thanks to an event occurred in the previous book, she now has a mysterious connection with Daemon which neither of them can explain. And now that Daemon is romantically interested in her, Katy is not so sure of it, because thanks to the damn connection, she isn´t sure if his feelings are true or not, so she doesn´t accept him but Daemon is determined to prove that what he feels for her is real. But she´s so stubborn that she doesn´t relent and she´s making bad decisions and ends up hurting people that she cares about.
Onyx also introduces new characters, Blake the new boy at school, that tries to woo Katy, he plays a major key role in the plot and he is also part of the love triangle, but he has his dark secrets. there are also the DOD agents who come to cause problems and complicate their life.
Another important part of the story is that Katy discovers that someone they thought was dead, is not, and she knows that she has to tell Daemon about it, but she knows that everything is about to change for better or worse.
Onyx is an addictive book that made me want to have all the books in the series (which are five, but only three have been published) to read them one after another, there is a particular part in the book that I thought that the "storm" was over and all would be okay, and the BOOM, a twist that I did not expect (at least not in this book) and I'm very paranoid and sometimes I think that all of them are the "bad guy", but I didn´t see it coming...wow. And besides there is the end of the book that although it was not a mayor cliffhanger, it left me intrigued and I want to know what will happen next. I LOVED Onyx! and I can´t wait to read Opal.
"Kitten," he said again, voice strained. "You don´t get to do that and then stop. That´s not how it works."
“What are we going to do, Kitten?”
My toes curled at the deep octave of his voice. “I don’t know.”
“I have a few ideas.”
I cracked a grin. “I’m sure you do.”
"Wanna hear about them? Although, I’m much better at the show part rather than the tell.”
“Somehow, I believe you.”
“If you didn’t, I could always give you a teaser.” He paused, and I could hear the smile on his voice. “You bookish people love teasers, don’t you?”
"That I´m lucky, because the person I can´t get out of my head, the person who means more to me that I can stand, is still alive. She´s still there. And that´s you."
