I will confess that I was NOT a fan of Daemon after Obsidian. I know, I know…I’m pretty much one of the very few who could not get past his meanness toward Katy. But…he was REALLY mean, you guys!! He made me cry for her in that cafeteria scene! Anyway, my point is that I went into Onyx reluctantly. And only on the assurance from friends that he got better…
Hi. My name is Jess, and I am now a fan of Daemon.
I know! How did this happen?! Well, mostly it was his obvious regret for the way he treated Katy in the previous book. Second, it was how much he obviously cared about her and wanted to be with her. Third, he showed us his nice, caring side A LOT more. He redeemed himself in my eyes!!! And in Katy’s, for that matter, but Katy is one stubborn girl.
Katy was terrified to trust him, to even be close to him, because of the way he had treated her. She was trying to be careful and not fall for him. So she spends a lot of the time pushing him away or keeping him at arm’s length (which isn’t always easy for her). But let me tell you…those moments where she gives in are explosive and steamy and totally awesome. And Daemon isn’t the only one who changes. In fact, Katy goes through crazy changes in this book. All of which were fascinating.
In Onyx we also get to learn a lot more about the Luxen’s time in DOD custody. Everyone discovers so many things no one knew before. So many secrets are uncovered, to the point where you don’t know who to trust by the end. The whole ride is completely exciting and certainly nail-biting.
The end of this book was such a rollercoaster of emotions! I was devastated, I was elated, I was in disbelief, I was happy. It was a lot! But I wouldn’t change a thing. Well, maybe one thing. :’(
I am very much looking forward to reading Opal. I have a feeling is going to be even crazier than Onyx and I can’t wait!

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.
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…
