Wow, Onyx is good. I officially love the Lux series. It has everything a series good need: action, romance, and plenty of mystery. There are plot turns and flips at every corner. Let's just say, the ending, totally unexpected! The author had me riding along with every word, right from page one. I gobbled the book up in one sitting. The book is about aliens, and let me tell you, I've never seen hotter aliens in my life! I swear, every one of them makes me melt!
If you look at my previous review, you see that the main character is named Katie. She is an amazing heroin. Definitely someone to look up to. She fights for what she believes in, what is right. But even she makes mistakes, which proves that she's human...or as close as she can be anyway. There's the male protagonist, Daemon. I love him just as much as Katie does, but I don't think he completely gets her. It seems like he's always chiding her for risking her life. But she's risking her life for good things that she believes is right. They're both stubborn, which makes for a great/horrible match, and the funniest love/hate relationship EVER! Often in books, it's portrayed that the guy is super sweet and 'gets the girl better than she gets herself'. That is not the case. He gets her just as much as any other guy would, which gives the book a more real feeling.
The book is officially AMAZING! I believe the writing could have been better though. And I wouldn't have minded if Daemon was bit less snooty to Katie. But hopefully, it will work out in the end. This is the second book in the series, and I can't decide if it's just as good or better than the first. They're both SO amazing! Anyway, I give the book a solid five.
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…
