Onyx (Lux #2)

Review From User :

HANDS DOWN, feet down, face down, ass down the best book Jennnifer L. Armentrout has ever written (yes, the extra "n" in Jennifer was originally a typo, but I decided to leave it in because that's just how awesome she is). I've said before that I'm riding the Jennifer L. Armentrout train going full speed ahead, but now I own the frickin railroad! GREAT ALIEN BALLS OF FIRE!

I must warn you, Onyx drips with sexual tension. Just when I thought the witty banter between Daemon and Kat couldn't get any better, I was bitch-slapped with betterness! How can you not love a book with words like "dickdom" and "craptastic" or a phrase like, "my boobs just might come out and say hello tonight." When I wasn't having a total bookgasm for Daemon, I was laughing out loud!!

The pace of the story is perfection. Often times, a book starts off great and climaxes great (insert immature giggle here), but suffers from "saggy middle syndrome". There is nothing saggy about Daemon Onyx. We don't get jipped with a "filler" sequel thats only purpose is to transition into book three. We get a sequel that blows away the first! Jennifer takes everything that was good about Obsidian and does it ten times better!

So ladies...send the kids to grandma's, lock up the husbands, break up with the boyfriends because you're spending the night with Daemon. In fact, I actually think I may be impregnated with a tiny alien baby just by reading Onyx.

Jennifer L. Armentrout has proven herself to be the pimp of all teasers; be prepared to be left wanting more! SO *gasp* MUCH *gasp* MORE *pant*

Just a little something to get you to August...

"You know, I was worried about you," he admitted, moving forward, easing my legs apart.

"My heart cracked. Daemon never begged."

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…
