Synopsis from Goodreads:
Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…Goodreads
Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarre connection. I’ve sworn him off even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But against all common sense, I’m falling for him. Hard.
Our relationship issues aren’t out biggest problem…
The Department of Defense is here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And when a new boy shows up a school with a secret of his own, things get complicated fast. I need to choose between my own instincts and Daemon’s.
But then everything changes…
I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. Daemon’s never going to stop searching until 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.
Series: Lux #2
Expected publication: August 14th 2012 by Entangled Teen (Thank you!)
Are you ready for more breathtaking ride?
Oh, holly alien babies everywhere...
Move aside you sexy charming vampire, make way for the hot infuriating, boy-next-door alien.
I think I loved this book more than the first one. So anxious when I started reading Onyx because some of the sequels I've read lately are just a let-down compare to their predecessors. But this book was pretty darn good. Not only there are more new characters added but also we will be seeing a different side of Daemon that we don't see often or rather we never saw in Obsidian and as always, he CRACKS me up. I loved it when he calls Blake wrong names like Flake, or Boris or Baff just to annoy Katy, or was it because he was jealous? Oh! I hear you ask, is there a love triangle? Hah! I will never tell.
A storyline that is both intriguing and bursting with humours. There are more surprises in store for fans of this amazing series. I bet you couldn't wait to know what those are? I was reading this book in an ungodly hours, the story just flowed along well and just couldn't put it down. The sizzling romance and revelations are just simply irresistible. The main characters got stronger and has more depths than ever. Katy is such a very enjoyable narrator/heroine/protag. She definitely grown more mature since the first book and I loved loved loved reading her thoughts, she felt so real and sensible and a kickass. I was emotionally connected with her. Now lets talk about Daemon, hmm yummy sexy Daemon. Dont you just loved it when this bad-arrogant-douche-face-guy shows his other-side of pure angelic sweetness?
*curls up in bed and dies*
The chemistry between them was steamy, fascinating and hilarious at the same time, they still bicker and insult each other. Their relationship is charged with so much tension that you will be squealing inside.
Once again, Jennifer has yet proved that her talent is pure epicness, this book is simply amazing, left me astounded and frustrated at the same time(in a great way). The ending was.. the ending was.. it was a WTF-moment for me! I can hardly wait for the third book. I hate this nailbiting-season and shit.
Overall, loved this book, glad I stuck with this series, and I have a good feeling that the third book will be freaking good as this one. I have a big fat guess on what is going to happen next but it's only a guess, and If I am right, its going to be insane! *zips mouth*
"Memories, even bittersweet ones, are better than nothing, you know?"
I closed my eyes. That kind of love shoul've been able to beat sickness. That kind of love should've conquered anything.
