Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout [Audio Review]

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…

5 Just say it Stars

I read this series three years ago. I started to read YA before I started to read NA. I’m still a major fan of YA and there’s something about listening to YA books that I really love. I love that these books are pure romance and the steamy stuff is kind of on the back-burner. I also love paranormal reads, so this is a win-win for me.

If you haven’t started this series or if you already read them, you should do the audio version. I feel like I re-experience everything for the first time.

Onyx picks up where Obsidian leaves off.  Daemon and Kat are growing closer in their relationship and another person is thrown in to the mix… Blake.

I wouldn’t call this a love-triangle book, but I love Blake’s character. I felt he added great tension and I loved seeing Daemon jealous.  Blake is the new kid in town and he’s showing interest towards Kat. He’s willing to take whatever relationship he can get from her, friendship, or something more. Kat still has feelings for Daemon, but with Daemon’s hot and cold personality, she wants to focus on someone else.

Blake is a great distraction and even though she makes it clear to Blake that she only wants a friendship, it still ruffles Daemon… just a tad bit and I love it.

The thing I really love about this series is the pure romance of it and oh the innocence of Daemon and Kat’s relationship. I love how much Daemon cares for Kat. He does turn around a bit and tries to pursue her, but Kat only thinks Daemon likes her because of the connection.

Can I just say that I love the connection?! Anything that links two people together gets me all squishy inside. Shelly Crane did that in the Significance series and I thought it was fantastic. I love that Kat isn’t throwing herself at Daemon. I love that she is slightly guarded and she’s trying to prevent herself from getting hurt. I love strong Heroines in paranormal books. I think you kind of have to have them if they are willing to face off villains and bad guys.

This book was jam pack of fun and it kept me interested from start to finish. I loved it and I love this series.


What made the experience of listening to Onyx the most enjoyable?
The two main characters made the listening experience the most enjoyable. I love Kat and Daemon’s dynamics. I love the tension, I love the banter and I love everything about them.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Onyx?
The most memorable moments of Onyx was probably the main shift towards the end. I loved that all of the tension and build up finally exploded. It was what I was waiting for when I started the book and it exceeded my expectations.

What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
This is my second time to listening to Justine Eyre and I have to say I like her more and more with each book I listen to. She isn’t overly girly, so her voice matches Kat completely. It’s a bit mature, yet she really knows how to express emotions, especially when Kat starts crying. I enjoy Justine voice very much.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes I can listen to this book in all in one sitting. There’s so much action, tension, drama and dialogue that keeps me going and going. It’s a fantastic series.

I was so lucky to meet Jennifer at a book signing in Houston, Texas. I was really lucky that during the lunch break, she sat at the same table as me!!!! I totally fan-girled and I was a big mess. Jennifer is like the queen of the YA book world. I asked her how she liked Texas, she said it was very "different". I laughed. More photos HERE

All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true. 

Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write.
