Review of Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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 review:  
5 of 5 stars false

Ok, that was intense. Like super duper intense. I actually had to take several deep breaths when I finished Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Didn't even realize I had been holding my breath, especially at the end. Honestly, Jennifer really outdid herself in this book. I never thought she would be able to write something more awesome than Obsidian, but boy was I wrong.

This book was just soooo freaking amazing. Seriously, the action and the suspence, and believe there was a lot of that, kept me sitting at the edge of my bed. And the romance, man the romance, such scolding hot love but sweet nonetheless. Loved the new side we got to see of Daemon on this book other than his smart-ass side, not that I don't want to jump every little bit of it ;) And also loved how Katy developped in this book too, and how she wasn't the damsel in distress all the time, well at least not as much as Obsidian. But of course no complaints from me, that way we get to see Daemon go all chivalerous. Furthermore, the appearance of certain previously-mentioned characters in Onyx was quite the coolest addition that added up to the heat of this book. But there was this moment where I reaaaally wanted to kill Jennifer, because honestly did she REALLY have to kill off that character???!!! I seriously hate it when authors go around killing characters like it's nothing, I mean come on it wasn't THAT neccesary!! But eitherway, it was a super great book and I loved every single word of it. 

Now, to TRY to bear the wait for Opal especially after that horrid cliffhanger. That woman (meaning Jennifer :P) just wants to kill me, I'm sure of it. But at least I have those scenes in Daemon's POV to read ;)
