Onyx (Lux Novel)

Onyx - Jennifer L. Armentrout

In Onyx, Daemon has taken it upon himself to prove to Katy that what they feel for each other is more than just a result of their strange alien connection. Or as Katy likes to call them, her "alien cooties".


I thought I had torn through Obsidian, but I literally devoured Onyx. This series has caught me completely off guard, because I honestly didn't expect to love it as much as I do. Onyx absolutely sealed the deal for me, I'm in love with the Lux series.

 

In Onyx, we see a much different side to Daemon, and even to Katy. We're introduced to Blake - another new kid in town with a secret, and he quickly throws Katy's world into absolute tumult and gives Daemon reason to be jealous. Daemon had a long road ahead in this book, but he never gave up on Katy, even when she was bound and determined to give up on him.

 

 

 

In Obsidian, my only grief was that the plot was pretty basic. Onyx takes this to an entirely different level. In Onyx, the DOD has arrived - and no one has been telling the truth. There are tons of revelations about the DOD, who is an enemy and who is a friend, and even about the bond that Daemon and Katy share. On top of that, someone shows up in town that everyone assumed was dead, and it turns everything the Luxen thought they knew upside down. The world as they've seen and understood it has been a lie, and the truth is terrifying.


This is a book that will linger in the back of your mind, and I guarantee you'll find yourself reaching for it even though it's already 2am and you've gotta go to sleep. It's just that worth it.

 

That's all. Yes, this is a short review. That's partially because Onyx left me speechless, and partially because I'm already itching to go get book three in the series and start right now. This one is a must read!
