Title: Onyx
Series: Lux, #2
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Rating: 3 Shooting 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.

Onyx starts out with Daemon and Katy being connected ever since he healed her. Now they always know when the other is near, and Katy seems to have some strange things happening to her side effects of the alien mojo! 

During this book Daemon is constantly trying to let Katy know how he feels about her. He wants to try to have a relationship with her now. And Katy is pushing him away because she doesn't believe he really wants it. She just believes that it is apart of the connection they now have. 

Lots of things happen in this book. Katy makes a new friend, that Daemon doesn't trust. And lots of mistakes are made, and lots of people hurt. 

The problem I had with this book was Katy. I understand some of how she felt about Daemon. I mean he was really mean to her, then just all of a sudden he wanted to be with her. I totally get how she thought his feelings weren't real. But what bugged me the most was it felt like she was a really smart girl in the first book. Like she knew that there were weird things going on with Dee, and Daemon, but she may not have really made a huge deal out of it she still knew something was up and kept her guard up. And she also never treated them like the weren't "normal" but in this book she makes a comment about how she just wants to be normal for a change. Her attitude just bothered me throughout the whole book. And the fact that she just seemed to trust Blake so much, I really thought she was super dumb. It was like she just changed all of a sudden. 

Anyways I won't harp on that much longer just wanted to get my point across. Over all the book was okay. It wasn't as good as the first one, but it was still good, and I can't wait for the next one. The best part of the book was the ending. Now I'm super excited about the next one.
