Book Description

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…

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Sequel! August 3, 2012
Reviewed on 7/27/12:

Jennifer has done it again, folks.

Jennifer has a way of pulling readers in from the very first word, leaving them completely lost in her words until the very final page. The character development alone in ONYX is utterly fantastic, and the romance isn't too shabby either. ;)

ONYX is everything that a sequel should be. In fact, for me, ONYX is even better than OBSIDIAN.

I adore Armentrout's Covenant series, I do, but the LUX series may just be my favorite out of the two. Alex is a kickass heroine, yes, but Katy? She's tough in OBSIDIAN, but Katy in ONYX? Everything that she goes through in this novel forces her to fight for the things that she cares about, and boy, does she fight.

Since I could go on all day about this one, I'm going to highlight what I think needs to be discussed:

Let's start by going back to SHADOWS, shall we? I know that some readers prefer to skip over novellas that are released in between the next series installment, and I can understand why. Some of the novellas can be filler material (when I say some, I do mean some - most of them do actually move a series along). But if you're planning on skipping SHADOWS and jumping right into ONYX? I'm going to have to suggest you reconsider. Yes, we hear about Bethany and Dawson in OBSIDIAN, but when I say that it is vital that you read SHADOWS, I do mean it is vital.

Now that we've got that covered:

Daemon Black: In ONYX, we see an entirely different side to Daemon, and I do mean an entirely different side. Yes, he's still sarcastic, and at times, he can be a jerk. But in ONYX, we get to meet the softer side of Daemon, the side that discusses feelings, and actually makes it a point to showcase his emotions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it so hard August 9, 2012
Holy chocolate chip cookies. This book was hot and I could not put it down. Jennifer did not disappoint in this sequel to Obsidian. It is just as action packed loaded with humor, sarcasm, plot twists and our favorite book blogging heroine Katy.
It is pretty much leave me alone, I'm reading, or Oh is it seriously 3am? kinda book where the world seems to fall away and I get to experience what Katy is feeling and almost feel like I am a part of this world of smoking hot aliens, dept of defense peeps around every corner, and trying to figure out certain boys who shall not be named.
It is so hard to review this without talking about what happened, but let me try. There are so many conflicts going on, I just want for the characters I love to be happy, but I guess what kind of series would it be then? There is conflict with Dee, not only with Adam and what their relationship should be, but also between Dee and Katy. Katy makes some bad decisions, and I just want to smack some sense into her (and so does Daemon for that matter), but I totally understand her motivations behind each of those decisions. And that makes her still a strong and determined main character that I admire. But anyways, one of her bad decisions eats up pretty much all of her time, and leaves some feelings between her and Dee.
There is also the DOD peeps, and several other new characters that I had absolutely no idea what to think of. They can seem so harmless and good intentions one second, and then the next I am questioning them and wondering if I am paranoid.
The drama between Katy and Daemon is so thick you can cut it with a knife. And I love every second of it. Their bickering, his pen pokes, the sexy moments and the whispered endearments and declarations. I ate it up.

2.0 out of 5 stars KATY: The HOW TO on INFURIATING a Reader December 12, 2012
By elle b.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all I would like to say that I am a big fan of Jennifer A. I loved Obsidian and read it multiple times.

That being said, Onyx, the second book in the Lux Series was overwhelmingly painful to read. P-A-I-N-F-U-L! The number one reason, Katy.

Katy did nothing but blunder through one bad decision after another. At times she would acknowledge that she was in fact doing something dumb yet she continued to do those stupid things anyway. What happened to the seemingly intelligent girl from book one? Gone. Katy acted completely stupid throughout the book, trusting all the wrong people and not trusting all the right ones. Katy would ignore her own instincts and repeatedly put herself (and on occasion others) in dangerous situations. You would think that after suffering painful consequences from blindly trusting the wrong person Katy would learn from it and question the trustworthiness of the those around her. Nope. Yet again she ignored her initial instincts and trusted the wrong person, so of course more bad things happened.
One of my biggest pet peeves is a heroine that repeated makes stupid decisions and doesn't learn from mistakes. Sadly, this is the embodiment of Katy in this book. She was completely infuriating.

I wanted to love this book like I loved the first book but that definitely didn't happen. A slightly redeeming quality of the book was Daemon and a few of the Daemon scenes.

------------------------------------------Spoiler Alert--------------------------------------------------------------
I was really looking forward to this book after having read "Obsidian" and "Shadows". I really thought it was going to be EPIC. Turned out I was right!!! It was and EPIC FAIL!!!
First of all... Who is this girl that Katy has become? Katy transformed from a smart, witty heroin into a blubbering idiot with just terrible decision making abilities! I was looking forward to J.A building on the whole alien thing, but she only built on how "hot" Daemon looked with every page turn. J. Armentrout created a nightmare Katy. She was indecisive and stupid. She just would not let go of the past, which I found childish. She kept saying the same thing over and over again and having the same argument with Daemon. And she suddenly reminded me of Bella from Twilight.
Second, the plot was great, but the character Katy had become and the decisions she was making, combined with J.A focusing primarily (in fact just too much) on Katy's and Daemon's hot-cold relation really took a lot away from the building of the plot. Katy's thoughts of loving Daemon and wanting to protect him completely overshadowed the actual "battle scene" at Katy's house (Blake and the DOD vs. the Luxen). I could hardly follow the battle. And then when Katy was taken... it was just as ridiculous! On Katy's and Daemon's way to get Dawson, I just didn't feel that sense of urgency! It was like the ride there was just so relaxing!! They were holding hands, and wasting too much time talking when they were already running out of time. They argued about Katy accompanying Daemon, and when they got there, they argued about Katy going inside. And then they just literally walked in and then walked out.
