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...

Jennifer L. Armentrout lives in West Virginia. All the rumors you've heard about her state aren't true. Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write. She shares her home with her husband, his K-9 partner named Diesel, and her hyper Jack Russell Loki. Armentrout writes Adult and Young Adult Urban Fantasy and Romance. She can be found 'brainstorming' on Twitter or stalking Goodreads while fighting her never-ending addiction to caffeine.

Favourite Quote: "Words are the most powerful tool and so often underestimated. They could heal. They could destroy."
After how good the first book (Obsidian) was I was worried Onyx wouldn't live up to its standards but I was so wrong onyx was AMAZING!
Let's start with Damien who has changed quite a bit since the first book, he's not as mean to Katy and he's more kind and caring but of course it's Damien and he is still bad-ass and sarcastic most of the time but I still love him because seriously you can't not love him! Then there's Katy who's character development is seriously brilliant throughout this book she became kick-ass and dependant and brave. And these two together. Sexy and Awesome. Only way to describe it.
Other characters, Dee I was heart broken for at the end (read to find out why) she is just so innocent I cant believe the author did this to her but I'll excited to see if anything changes in Dee like if she becomes darker or meaner. The new character Blake I didn't like from the beginning because I knew he was involved in the plot in a bad way and plus he was intruding on Damien and Katy's relationship and that made me dislike him even more.
Onto the plot which was very well thought out and developed but I did guessed most of the twists, one of which I knew was going to happen way back in the first book but this didn't make me any less excited to see how Jennifer L.Armentrout laid them out and she didn't disappoint! Along with these plot twists there were numerous action scenes that were great and the ending leaving on a complete cliff-hanger, seriously cannot wait until Opal is out.
Overall I'd HIGHLY recommend this series, there's nothing but good things to say about it, it's that good.

Following the "AMAZINGNESS" of Obsidian, I wasn't sure if Ms. Armentrout could possibly outdo herself. I mean, Obsidian was one of those books that is LIFE-CHANGING!!! Seriously, she did it. She, unbelievably, miraculously, did IT!!
Onyx picks up right where Obsidian left off. With a newly connected Daemon and Kat. Daemon, being his extrememly tantalizing self, is stuck trying to convince his "Kitten" that they are meant to be. But, Kat is just not having it. Convinced that their attraction is a by-product of their Halloween connection, she refuses to give in to Daemon's, very alluring, wiles...Well, MOST of the time she does.
Kat doesn't just have Daemon's persistence to contend with...There's also the DOD--the branch of the government that monitors the Luxen and their activities. Kat starts to worry about the DOD finding out about their connection, among other new "occurances".
My FAVORITE aspect to Onyx is that we get a Daemon that we didn't really get in Obsidian. He's sweet and not just the jerk that Kat's used to. This makes their attraction all the more intense.
If you haven't read this series so far, I honestly don't know what is stopping you. The story has kept me hooked the entire time and I'm absolutely ANXIOUS for more!

Well, here I am again trying to figure out what I can say about this book that hasn't already been said. Hands down, it is as amazing as all the reviews have claimed it is. Daemon Black.....just his name makes be swoon. He has to be one of the hottest characters EVER written in a book series. I am dying to see this series made into a movie, but OMG, who in the world could play him and do him justice? Onyx picks up where Obsidian left off. If you have not read Obsidian and Shadows, you definitely need to read both of these books before Onyx. The Lux series is like tasting fine wine, a completely sensory experience. You have to hold it up to the light, swirl it around in the glass, smell it, taste it, and savor it. I am a total Jennifer L. Armentrout fangirl, so forgive me if I gush, but I know there are a ton of fellow fangirls gushing with me. Daemon has become like a drug to us, our own personal brand of heroin - okay, cheesy, cheesy, slap me, but I couldn't resist.....sorry Edward.
If you thought the laptop scene in Obsidian was hot, the sexual tension and chemistry gets even hotter in Onyx. For real. You will not be disappointed. Bless her heart, even though Katy tries to tell herself that the attraction they feel is only because of the connection, her attempts are futile. Try as she may, even she doesn't believe it. Daemon and Katy both have it, and they have it bad. There is also a lot of action and suspense in this series. It's actually really exciting in a nail biting kind of way. We are introduced to some new characters in this book, i.e., "the new boy" in the synopsis above, and frankly, I didn't trust him or like him either, and you can believe Daemon doesn't. We also see a lot more interaction with the DOD, and the story and the characters really take on a new level of depth and intrigue in this book, which I really loved. There are twists and turns around every corner and your interest is piqued from beginning to end. I can't say too much more than that without spoiling it, but believe me, it is GOOD.
We definitely do get to see another side of Daemon in Onyx. Though still fiercely loyal, protective, and cocky, with an ego the size of Jupiter, we get to see past the surface into the deep waters of Daemon in this book. He is quite the romantic, at least when it comes to Katy. Ah, Katy, you can't help but love her. She is such an awesome heroine herself, and like Daemon, she to is fiercely loyal and protective, minus the ego. Katy and Daemon's relationship sucks you right into the middle of the book with them. Jennifer has such a talent for enabling the reader to actually become part of the story. Her characters are so real, and the interaction between the characters, the pacing of the book, and the story line itself is beyond excellent. Several of the reviews I read talked about a cliffhanger at the end, and there is somewhat, but personally, I was really pleased with the ending. It left me satisfied, yet longing for more, like only an Oreo Blizzard can do. Therefore I dub thee, Jennifer L. Armentrout, Princess of the Pages. She knows how to put the R in Romance, the S in sizzle, and H in HAWT. Trust me when I say, that Onyx and the entire Lux Series is something that you do not want to miss, you know, kind of like you don't want to miss breathing.
On a happy note, I am so excited that we don't have to wait that long for Opal. I'm dying to see where the story goes from here.

I truly feel as if I can't say anything in my review that you haven't heard from everyone who has read Onyx. YES! Onyx is as awesome as Obsidian. YES! Daemon is infuriating, awesome, and gorgeous as ever. YES! Onyx lives up to the enormous hype.
I feel as if I can't say a lot without giving precious details. If you loved Obsidian, you will be blown away by Onyx. Here's why: Daemon. But it's not what you think. Yes, Daemon is impossibly aggravating, in a ridiculously sexy way. In Onyx, though, a different side of Daemon emerges. I wouldn't say he's softer, exactly, but it is a welcome change to see him not actively trying to push Kat away. Of course, the chemistry between the two is fantastic. Daemon and Kat are continuously drawn to one another, with Kat fighting it as much as possible. But who are we kidding? We all know there isn't a snowball's chance in H-E-L-L that she can resist Daemon for long. But...there's a new guy in town, one who takes a noticeable interest in Kat. Could Daemon have serious competition?
As for the plot, there's not a moment's rest in Onyx. The DOD is a continual threat, especially since Daemon and Katy's connection is stronger than ever. The Arum are circling. And it turns out that there may be more to Lux /human bond than ever imagined. Kat learns that no one can be trusted. No one. But is it already too late? Onyx deals one exciting bombshell after another.
It's no secret that Armentrout is a fantastic writer. I read Obsidian last fall, but her story and the strong impression she made enabled me to slide easily back into the world. I didn't have to jog my memory for details. I didn't have to do a quick re-read, though that would be fun. There's a reason the Lux series is such a big deal. It's that good and worth every bit of the hype.

Holy chocolate chip cookies. This book was hot and I could not put it down. Jennifer did not disappoint in this sequel to Obsidian. It is just as action packed loaded with humor, sarcasm, plot twists and our favorite book blogging heroine Katy.
It is pretty much leave me alone, I'm reading, or Oh is it seriously 3am? kinda book where the world seems to fall away and I get to experience what Katy is feeling and almost feel like I am a part of this world of smoking hot aliens, dept of defense peeps around every corner, and trying to figure out certain boys who shall not be named.
It is so hard to review this without talking about what happened, but let me try. There are so many conflicts going on, I just want for the characters I love to be happy, but I guess what kind of series would it be then? There is conflict with Dee, not only with Adam and what their relationship should be, but also between Dee and Katy. Katy makes some bad decisions, and I just want to smack some sense into her (and so does Daemon for that matter), but I totally understand her motivations behind each of those decisions. And that makes her still a strong and determined main character that I admire. But anyways, one of her bad decisions eats up pretty much all of her time, and leaves some feelings between her and Dee.
There is also the DOD peeps, and several other new characters that I had absolutely no idea what to think of. They can seem so harmless and good intentions one second, and then the next I am questioning them and wondering if I am paranoid.
The drama between Katy and Daemon is so thick you can cut it with a knife. And I love every second of it. Their bickering, his pen pokes, the sexy moments and the whispered endearments and declarations. I ate it up. It kept me turning the pages just looking for another scene between them, and then left at the very end yearning, wishing the next book was in my hands.
And mother of all cliffhangers, really? December can't come fast enough so I know what happens, if revenge is sought, and what exactly they meant about everything changing with mystery character rescued that shall not be named.
Jennifer is an amazing author, and I love this series, as well as the Covenant series, and just like I know I will probably love everything she writes.
