Onyx

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…

REVIEW

So after reading the greatness that is Obsidian, I immediately picked up Onyx.
Was I disappointed? Yes
Did I still enjoy it? YES

My biggest problem with this book was the pacing. It seemed like a roller coaster at times. There would be times where it would be so exhilarating that I didn’t want to put it down, and at other times it was just so slow and pointless. Therefore, I wasn’t pushed to pick this book up most of the time.

The reason why I’m giving this a 4 star rating is because when I was engrossed in this story, I.was.addicted. I would just read for a hour and time would fly past like it had only been an hour.

MINOR SPOILER AHEAD! ONLY READ IF YOU HAVE READ ONYX

The thing I absolutely loved about Onyx was the development of Katy’s powers. This is definitely one of my favorite parts of this series and I’m super excited to see how her abilities develop more in the future installments in this series.

Starred Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
