Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: Lux #2
Published on: August 14th 2012

Goodreads Summary: 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….

My Rating: 5/5 stars

My Review: This book was absolutely perfect! From sexy Daemon scenes, to betrayal, action, romance, and a huge surprise! I could not put this book down!

Daemon and Katy are linked. As awesome as it sounds to be linked to someone so hot and sexy, its a huge danger. Daemon and Katy are hiding their powers from the DOD who could definitely hurt them if they found out. But when Katy starts getting sick, and mysterious new guy shows up at school, strange things start happening. 

I love this book so much more than the first one! I loved Katy from the beginning, mostly because of her love for books. How could I not love a fellow book lover? But in the fist book I thought it was going to play out just like Twilight where shes just the little human girl, and the all powerful Alien comes to her rescue all the time. But I was completely wrong, Katy can definitely kick some ass! Feeling new powers and going through training, Katy learns to defend herself and kick some Arum butt, if she ever needs to. 
Now lets talk about Daemon. OH MY GOD! There are so many ways to describe him.. but I think I'll go with Perfect. He is just the perfect mixture of my other book boyfriends (Adrian Ivashkov and Will Herondale) Not only is he like the mysterious kind of guy who can sometimes act like a complete ass hole! But then turn around and bring you flowers and act all mushy! And the things he says, totally remind me of Adrian's witty comments. Ugh I just love him so much! Why can't these boys be real?
Okay enough about mushing over Daemon. This book was filled with all kinds of action that will knock you off your chair. But it also has the ability to make you cry because of all the super cute things and love scenes between Daemon and Katy. I honestly cant say anything bad about this book. I mean there is obviously characters that I don't like, and some events that happened that I wish didn't, but I honestly wouldn't change a thing, it just made everything fit together so well. I definitely recommend this to all of you who read the first book. No like seriously go read this right now, but make sure you've read the first book.

Happy Reading :)

Onyx (Lux, #2)


  1. Great review for a great book. :-) You'll love the next one, though you're going to want to read Origin immediately after finishing it.

    1. Thank you so much! And I can imagine, I wanted to read Opal right after this, but I have to restrain myself haha :)
