Goodreads 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…

My Rating of this Book – 5 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

All I can really say is OMG! Although Onyx was a little slower to develop than Obsidian, the action was phenomenal! The twists and turns simply thrilling, keeping me glued to my seat until the end of the book!

Katy and Daemon were amazing as usual. I still can slip into Katy’s skin easily, feeling practically everything she is feeling. Joy, sadness, pain – it’s almost like I am her while I read the Lux Series. And Daemon – Oh, Daemon – there is a reason I have such a book-crush on you! Though still the usual jerk I love, he has also grown in leaps and bounds. I truly enjoyed how their relationship grew throughout this novel. And the tests they are put through, like Katy’s transformation and the situation with the Department of Defense (or DOD). It just shows how strong they are together.

Additionally, I loved the conspiracy that linked to the DOD to the disappearance of Daemon’s twin brother. It fascinated and surprised me how deep the plot penetrated. And what was worse was how far some individuals were willing to go to get exactly what they wanted in the end. But I don’t want to give too much away. You’ll have to buy the book to really discover what I’m talking about. 😉

To sum up, I CAN’T WAIT for Opal to be released this December!! I have to know what happens and where things go from here!
