Publisher's Summary

Daemon's determined to prove what he feels for Katy is more than a product of their bizarro connection. So she's sworn him off, even though he's running more hot than cold these days. But they've got bigger problems.The Department of Defense is here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that Katy and Daemon are linked, Katy's 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 Katy and he can help, but to do so, Katy has to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, Katy's falling for Daemon. Hard.

Katy's seen someone who shouldn't be alive. And she has to tell Daemon, even though he'll never stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them - from her?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies....

    Story
    "An excellent turn into suspense and thrill"

    At the beginning of the series, you might be lured into thinking this is a YA teen romance. Well it is and it is very much not. In the second novel, much more Divergent esq., Armentrout does a fabulous job broadening the focus of the novel with surprising turns. Daemon and Kat are back and they stop the petty fighting and unite on a common goal -- can they overcome the DoD, who can the trust?

    Okay, Eyre does a great job narrating. If you are are a fan of hunger games, divergent, steelheart, etc. You will love the series and book 2. Give it a read.

    Story
    "Onyx is pure gold"

    This book is simply A-MAZING! I thought Obsidian was good, but then I listened to Onyx and was blown away. Daemon and Katy are back and better than ever! There were so many twists and turns and OMG moments that this one actually took my breath away. And that ending….whoa! This is such a well written and intense story that many times I forgot this was a YA book. Jennifer Armentrout is an extremely talented writer and this series is a must listen for anyone that enjoys YA PNR.

    5 Stars!!

    I like any books that hook you within the first chapter. If a love story is involved even better.

    Story
    "Loved it, again!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to a friend as long as they were into the same type of books I am into.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Daemon! At first you hate him then you love him. I like those kind of guys.


    What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does a great job with the expressing the emotion of Katy, but when she does Daemon's and the other men's voice it can be hard to tell a difference.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved it all!


    Any additional comments?

    Just listen and get hooked!

    Story
    "I don't know wether to slap myself or Armentrout"
    What would have made Onyx better?

    I like better fleshed out characters and good story development. The story was jerky. For what seems like chapters unpon chapters nothing would happen except for Katy and Deamon's drama and then something would happen that would finally move the story forward. I don't mind reading about highschool teens and their crap but these happen to be ALIENS and the government is involved and there are a lot of shenanigans so it had the potential to be an incredible story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jennifer L. Armentrout again?

    Yeah. And that speaks poorly of me.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Well, Justine Eyre the narrator is pretty good, I don't like the male voice she uses for Daemon but the rest of the characters are more or less well portrayed. Also one of Katy's cafeteria friend's sounds like a smoker, Lesa or Carissa or something like that. Overall a good job.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I like ALIENS. They're a nice change from vampires, demons, fallen angels, werewolves and the more common PARANORMAL stories out there.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is pathetic. Mostly is about Katy not being over Daemon being a douche in book one and thus throughout this book she makes many stupid decisions and assumptions that lead down slippery slopes. Katy is one of my least favorite heroines.

    Like I said before I like ALIENS so I will more than likely finish out the series but only because even though the story is developed poorly it is a good story.

    "NOT YA, but good story"

    Parents, be warned!! This book encourages kids to go behind parents backs and participate in sex, drinking and even skipping classes. There is a lot of talk about sex (talk AND frequent participation), drinking and skipping school. I realize it's "normal" in the high school era to be tempted by things like this, which is why I am surprised this book did not hold back for being YA. Not only that, but the parents of these teenagers in this book are still barely involved in the kids lives, and they act as though their hormone strung teenager is capable of "just sleeping side by side". Yes, that is what really happened in the story, but I don't know any parent who would react the way the mom did in this book when she found her daughter sleeping in just a tshirt next to her boyfriend. It's dangerous territory for young adults, in my opinion.

    All that said...

    I still enjoyed this series quite a bit, when I thought of it outside of the high school realm. I thought this book definitely took it's own course, away from the Twilight similarities, and I found myself pulled into it. The characters are built well, they stay true to who they are, and a lot of self discovery is made in some of the characters as well. I enjoyed the steady paced story line and I actually thought Justine Eyre's narration was much, much better this time around, too. No whispering or different tone's. It was comfortable.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Onyx to be better than the print version?

    No. Never is to me though, but it was good.

    I don't know, Daemon Black, Kitten, Dee....


    What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Not really


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Poor Adam.

    "Five Stars Worth of Entertainment!"

    Fast paced, witty, exciting, hAwt and steamy (yet very tastefull) romance and that is just to start. The characters have depth and their relationships develop in a manner that leaves you sitting on the edge to see what happens next. I have listened to all five of these books on audiable and I have bought the kindle versions so I can enjoy it again. I would love to see this series go on and on and I would also be first in line for the movie.

    The narrorator made the characters come alive and enriched the story for me.

    "Great series but you have to get past the VOICE!"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Justine Eyre’s performances?

    HELL NO, NOT IF I CAN HELP IT!!!!! Sorry but to me it was really that BAD!!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    This series is great but you may have to do some fooling around with the EQ just to stand the narrators voice! It would have been so much better if they chose someone else, I even think the story would have been better!
    This is not the first time I bought an audiobook with Justine Eyre as narrator and couldn't listen to more then a chapter or two but I really liked the characters and story line so that's what kept me going!
    Like I said I had to do a lot to the EQ just to listen to her voice that's how bad it really is!!!!!

    "Better, but aggravations"

    Lux, Book 2, which has more action and twists than book 1, is more enjoyable than Obsidian. However, some of the language used in the book gets too repetitive. True, it is about teens and in general teens can demonstrate a limited vocabulary and/or catchy sayings but too much. Although this is a better story, more and more I dislike all the female characters in this book. My confession is these books aren't bad enough to scream and if you need to indulge your secret, YA-fantasy, guilty pleasure these aren't terrible.

    Any additional comments?

    Just finished Onyx and stayed up most of the night reading. Much more action and the plot thickens here. We moved out of Twilight realm and we have also moved out of YA as far as I am concerned. Yes, main characters are in High-School but the content is a bit deeper and the PG-13 rating is teetering closer to R in my opinion. All that being said, I really enjoyed the entire book but may take a break before the next one. This got heavy towards the end with deception, death and a lot of other drama.
