Onyx (Lux #2) Review

ONYX (Lux #2) By Jennifer L Armentrout

Onyx (Lux, #2)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…

Onyx Book Trailer

This review is so long overdue, and I apologizes sometimes the review for a book doesn't come to me as quickly or smoothly as I wished. But I'm determine that this review will be worth the wait, so enjoy and I'll be reading Opal (in time) and purchasing Origin (Lux #4) when it's released.
The sequel to Obsidian brings new challenges, edge-driven danger, and Revelations

After Katy been healed by Daemon, the danger lessen but Daemon isn't going to stop looking out for his sister and the other Luxs in small town of West Virgina. But when the Department Of Defense made it apparent to visit this small town, everyone is on high alert.
Both Katy and Daemon are still at it with each other, Katy really does wonder if Daemon's feelings are genuine or is it the alien connection when Daemon had healed her.
Katy begins to experience Alien traits but what can she do? What can Daemon do? Somehow the new kid Blake from California knows the answers but just how far will he push it?
Can Katy and Daemon figure out what the DOD has plans and what are Blake's real intentions but is there someone who even more dangerous because they are right under your nose?
Plus can Daemon prove to Katy that he does have true feeling for her?

I give this a 4.5 Cat's Tails Up, there was a lot of things happening in this book (maybe a little too much?) but anyways. Bringing in new people and reuniting with old people created the chaos for Katy, Daemon and the rest of the Lux crew.

Onyx was filled with great twists and turns, I love how Katy finally accepted that Daemon truly does care about her in his own way and they may just become a couple. But hey a reader can only hope right?

Under Radar: With the Blacks being already under radar they were even more so due to the increase of DOD people after a satellite suddenly loses its signal . . . destroyed they now are focusing on the small town and are watching the Blacks as well the Thompson.
While DOD were focusing on the Blacks, they were also focusing on Katy because they believed that she has possessed Alien abilities which would consider a new experiment for them. Something they been working on since the beginning.

Jealous Daemon: Wow just Wow, who knew Daemon had a jealous side of him and who can blame him? With Katy potentially dating the new guy Blake what guy wouldn't? Katy want to try and live a normal life, thus meaning normal dates and normal guys but when Katy begins to show abilities that couldn't stay hidden for long for Daemon or for Blake.
The Californian Blake guy had notice Katy's ability but he wanted to know who it would've been that healed her . . . he figured out eventually. Blake begin to pitch the idea of Katy be in training learning to harness the alien ability she got or it would get out of control and possibly death? Daemon does all he can to avoid the training but he knows that Katy is being hurt during training although she denies it every time.

Unsuspected: Remember that guy Katy's mom is dating? Yeah turns out he's working for the DOD and he want to get what Katy and Blake has . . . Alien Ability. Really Man? Really?
Both Katy and Daemon works to together to figure out what is the DOD purpose and why are they possibly working with Atrum but when Katy see someone that is from Daemon's past. Katy believes that Dawson could be alive as well Bethany but Daemon for awhile pushed it off until after Daemon and Katy return to the house after facing Katy's mom ex-boyfriend (now)  and Katy being torture and near death.  Will the guy get what he wants or will Daemon be forced to watch Katy get tortured and possibly get killed right in front of him.

The ending: Just before Katy been kidnapped by her mom's ex, she and Blake fights and Dee and Adam steps in to help but Blake killed Adam with his ability. Daemon becomes furious because Katy lied to him in the first place about the injuries she's gotten while training with Blake and Adam's death was partly Katy's fault. Will Daemon forgive? After Daemon rescued Katy, coming home turns out to be a one heck of reunion for the blacks.

So yes a lot happen in this book, I just wonder what Opal will bring when someone you believe was dead is very much alive?
