Reviews for Onyx
Like with all of Armentrout's other books, the characters came alive in Onyx. At the end of the novel, the readers will become attached with each of the characters that they will empathize with them. The characters went through a lot in this installment. They were battered, bruised, and abused. Emotions and hormones (both human and aliens, if they even have hormones) were flowing out of the pages. Things like trust, betrayal, and sacrifice characterized the story beautifully. Evoking emotions from one's readers is a talent very few writers possess, and Armentrout definitely possesses this talent without a doubt.
Two. The story itself.
With respect to Armentrout's storytelling prowess, she is able to prove once again that she is a master. The readers will get into the story immediately. Her writing is clear, modern, concise, and direct to the point. None of those unnecessary details that would just make the story confusing. And the plot is so cleverly twisted. Who's who? Who's what? Who? What? When? Where? Why? The suspense in Onyx is deadly. It kills.
Still laugh out loud funny. Witty humor pops out when you least expect it. Just when you are getting so engrossed with the suspense, Daemon or Katy says something that will just crack you up.
Four. Daemon. That sweet, sweet Daemon and his big romantic gestures. Who knew? Girls will faint reading about how Daemon woos Katy. THIS is romance.
Whereas in obsidian, the chemistry between Katy and Daemon is just below the boiling point, it was scorching in Onyx. Despite that, the two are still figuring out what they are to each other. Add into the mix some sort of "competition." Suffice it to say that Daemon is jealous. Can you imagine just how he reacts? Spicy.
The ended with a cliff-hanger. It's not the worst cliffhanger ever, but it still a cliff-hanger.
Daemon is in love! I can already hear the ooohs, aaahs, and other feminine sounds. Daemon is so sweet he actually made me teary-eyed at one point in the story. Beneath that tough, arrogant, and oh so sexy exterior, there is a knight in shining armor, a charming prince that will sweep every girl reader off her feet. Now on to the hot scenes. Fan yourselves girls. Fan yourselves. The hot scenes between Katy and Daemon made me feel nervous... among other things.
Onyx will have girls swooning, sighing, and blushing. But there is more to it than that. There is actually a very good suspenseful story behind the passionate romance between a human and an alien. The suspense in this book will have your heart racing. The drama would make your heart bleed. The unexpected twists will have you screaming profanities. If you thought Obsidian was great, then you will be stunned by Onyx. Jennifer Armentrout outdid herself with this one. I was simply blown away! Onyx is on a completely different level - fabulously, unforgettably intoxicating... by JoAnne Claudio
