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 Mini Review
I like this series but I was so frustrated with Katy!! But Daemon was swoon worthy and kept me wanting more. It had been a while since I read the first book but once I started Onyx it all came back to me. I like how the story picks up right where we left off. Katy and Daemon’s chemistry is so intense but her doubt in him and her feelings dragged the story. Their relationship goes from arguing one moment to sexy flirtation the next moment so I wanted Katy to just fess up to her feelings. But this drama added with new suspicious characters did make this an enjoyable read. My rating would have been higher if Katy didn’t irritate me so much. I can’t wait to read the next book.
This was my first time listening to Justine Eyre as a narrator and I liked her performance for everyone but Katy. I was getting frustrated with Katy’s behavior and I think her performance made it worse. Her voice was quiet and nasally so it made me hard to concentrate on the story. I see that she’s the narrator for the next book so I plan to read this instead.
