Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout-Book Review


Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Summary:
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 ARUM HAS COME TO TOWN 

The Department of Defense is 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:
Wow, I liked this 2nd book a lot! The storyline was more mature and had a lot more action. Mysteries in the story about "lost" people dominated the plot. I really liked the relationship between the two main characters Katie and Daemon. This was a happy surprise to have the second book in a series be so much better than the first. It still had some normal teenage angst but I felt the characters grew up in Lux#2. I've already started listening to the third book in the series. It's been fun listening while getting ready in the morning, before school starts, and before I go to bed. Now I know I'll finish the series because I'm just that hooked to want to find out more about this world.
