Audiobook Review: Onyx (Lux, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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…


Cross between Twilight and Roswell!

The heroine: Katy – High school student that is friends with and lives next door to two Luxen teenagers (alien). Katy had a crush on Daemon but he humiliated her in front of everyone in the cafeteria. Since then he has saved her and healed her. She knows what they are and that the Arum are a race of aliens that are after the Luxen.

The Hero(es): Daemon – Daemon has fought his attraction to Katy. Especially because his brother fell in love with a human and died because of it. Though since he healed Katy they have a connection that he can’t deny.

The Story: Katy has had a crush on Daemon but she can’t forgive him for humiliating her and doesn’t really believe that he now cares about her now when he didn’t before. A new guy named Blake moves to town and shows an interest in Katy.

Katy and blake become friends and of course Daemon acts like a jealous boyfriend. Though Katy won’t stand for it. I liked the interactions between Katy and Daemon. This book was very similar to the first but new things happen and more information is revealed. Katy and Daemon find out that when he healed her it had an effect on her even more so than the connection they feel.

The narration was good but I like it better when there is dual POV and a male and female narrator. That being said, the narration didn’t bother me and the voice was a good one. Sometimes when it is a voice that annoys you it will ruin the entire experience.

The story was good and interesting. I wish there were a bit more chemistry between Daemon and Katy and more steam in the book. Though I do like where the story went in this one and it seems to be leading to a place where the main characters are in too deep. I can’t wait to move on to the next book and see where it leads.
