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…
As soon as I turned the last page of Obsidian, I picked up the second book in the series, Onyx. Well, after reading the short story about Daemon’s brother Dawson, Shadows (which I recommend reading before this book). Anyways, it was just that good that I wanted to stay immersed in the world and never leave, and thankfully Onyx didn’t let me down either.
Onyx picks up right where Obsidian left off and if I thought I fell hard for Daemon in Obsidian, I pretty much keeled over for him in Onyx. Things have changed in big ways and now Daemon is determined to win over Katy. Katy isn’t quite so sure, after the stunts he’s pulled luring her in only to leave her feeling a little bit too vulnerable she’s not quick to trust him. But c’mon, he’s Daemon and he can be ridiculously charming when he wants to be.
But Katy and Daemon’s love life isn’t her biggest concern at the moment. The DOD (Department of Defense) have been lurking around town a lot lately and after Daemon healed Katy at the end of Obsidian she’s been experiencing some very strange changes in herself. So both her and Daemon are scared the DOD might catch on and make her (or both of them) disappear. Kind of like what happened with Daemon’s brother Dawson and his girlfriend Beth. On top of that a seemingly normal new guy named Blake has his sights set on Katy and she’s liking feeling a little normal for a change — until things get even more strange.
This is seriously one of the most engaging series’ I’ve read in a long time. Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of great books out there. But I am normally able to bounce around between book series’ in order to spread out the love. But every so often a series comes around that I just cannot get enough of and simply need to read the books back-to-back because I don’t want it to end — and this is one of those times.
Filled with action, suspense, an engaging storyline and of course there’s the sexpot that is Daemon, you just can’t go wrong with these books and it really goes to show you how amazing of a writer Jennifer L. Armentrout is. She’s created a solid and addictive page-turner of a series that I simply never want to end!
