So, it had been awhile since I’ve read book 1, but I remember it very clearly! Click here to read the review.
We pick up with school starting and Daemon is determined to prove to Katy what he feels for her is real. I don’t understand the hesitation, gurl! Enter the new kid, Blake, and I immediately don’t trust him, Do. Not. Like. Him! Granted, Daemon does have moments of hot and cold, but he is being protective of his sister, Dee. You can’t really fault him for that…
Daemon does warn Katy not to get too close to Blake, but she doesn’t listen. Things go to shit… pretty quickly. Blake is definitely not who you think he is, but ( PLOT-TWIST ) the bad guy isn’t exactly who you thought it would be either. While dealing with all this, Katy has to figure out if Daemon’s feelings for her are genuine (swoon What’s a girl to do?!)
I didn’t think anything could get better than Obsidian, but boy was I wrong! Onyx is witty, mysterious, plot-twist after plot-twist, revelations (and some of them are doozies!), and some really sweet and tender moments. Jennifer Armentrout’s writing is great. She has you guessing at every turn and hanging on every word. The character development from the first book is astounding. Katy is a strong heroine… although she does have some not so smart moments. She’s human… well…
There were moments when I seriously laughed out loud, yelled “WTF?!” and almost cried. This book will put you through trials and tribulation and anyone who couldn’t love Daemon after the Christmas tree scene is out of their mind!
