Goodreads Synopsis:

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:

I thought Obsidian was amazing, but after reading Onyx I have changed my mind. Onyx is pure perfection! I loved this roller coaster ride and I didn't want to get off it!

            After being almost killed by a truck, then being saved by her annoying neighbor, and finding out that he is in fact an alien who just marked her up like a Vegas strip club can take a huge toll on a person. It isn't easy being glued to an egotistical cocky ding dong like Daemon. He made a huge mistake in saving Katy and marking her up, but if he hadn't, then she would have died. Daemon couldn't let that happen and now he has to live with the consequences of his actions.  Now Daemon and Katy must stay attached at the hip until the alien mojo wears off. If they can't be civilized and learn to get along the Arum will come after them and kill them all.

            To make matters worse, the Department of Defense is snooping around, and if they find out that Katy and Daemon are linked...then she's a goner. Not to mention this alien mojo did something to Katy. She's starting to show alien powers, which is extremely rare in humans who have been saved by aliens because it means Daemon and Katy are permanently linked. They can read each others thoughts, feelings, presences, and worries.      

            In this gripping sequel, we see that Katy's character has grown stronger. She is ready to take risks, own up to her mistakes, and make her own decisions, even if it means ignoring the cocky aliens warnings. Daemon and Katy are just the cutest couple. They constantly fight, argue, insult, and hate each other. But at the end of the day they seem to figure everything out and just be comfortable with each other. In Obsidian, we saw Daemon's rude and cocky attitude. However, in Onyx, we get to see his sweet and caring side, which I tend to like so much better than his arrogant one. He promises Katy that his attraction towards her isn't just because of the link, but in fact it is because he truly cares for her. Daemon then goes on to prove to her that he likes her regardless of the link. I found this to be so cute! He was willing to prove his love to her, which just shows he really does have a sweet layer under all that tude!
