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....

"The second in Armentrout's Lux series is enchanting, as she carefully amps up the romance and danger. [Fans] will stay glued as the story unfolds and eagerly await the next installment." (RT Book Reviews)
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
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.
I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
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.
This is a great continuation from book 1... and like the 1st book, I lost sleep to keep listening. The plot thickens and I found myself rewinding at times just to get everything straight. I'd read the reviews and saw a few disparaging the narrator. I thought she read too slow but still brought out the characters quite nicely. I adjusted the speed and that solved the problem.
man talk about a nail biter wholly cow iv stayed up till 3 am to finish because I couldn't put it down although I'd still like to have a male voice instead of a female trying to sound masculine she did a wonderful job and I applaud her. I have fallen in love!!!!
Going into this I thought this was going to be twilight part 2. there were still a lot of similarities but I really liked this book....enough that #3 is downloading as I type. It's taken some interesting twists and really kept me engaged. I love the characters!
I like any books that hook you within the first chapter. If a love story is involved even better.
I would recommend this to a friend as long as they were into the same type of books I am into.
I love Daemon! At first you hate him then you love him. I like those kind of guys.
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.
I loved it all!
Just listen and get hooked!
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.
Yeah. And that speaks poorly of me.
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.
I like ALIENS. They're a nice change from vampires, demons, fallen angels, werewolves and the more common PARANORMAL stories out there.
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.
