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.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

This was a great continuation of Daemon & Katy story. I loved learning so much about this "world" the author has created. This book was exciting and suspenseful and has so much sexual tension (teenage tension of course)! Katy is probably one of the best YA female leads in Paranormal I've ever read, she is a total bada$$. She is tough, strong and full of courage. Can't wait to read what happens next.

The narration was good, she is a little too old sounding for this story but after 2 books I've grown used to her and it doesn't bother me at all.

Please change the narrator!

The storyline is great. The narrator is TERRIBLE though. She pronounces Daemon’s name wrong, not to mention other words. She also sounds entirely too old to be in high school. Plus she cannot voice a male character. She sounds too nasally and like she is in pain the whole time. I love JLA though, and this entire series!

Decent story but weird narrator

I really didn’t like how the narrator did the male voices. I assume the main man’s voice was supposed to sound sexy but really just sounded pained and growly, as if she were going to start barking at any second. I’ll continue the series but probably not via audio.

Martyr want to be

The leading female character came across extremely whiny. Constantly making mistakes with the idea she was doing what was right. Very annoying, even her voice was annoying.

Good Book. Awful Narrator

What did you like best about Onyx? What did you like least?

I feel the story was lacking in some way. Can't really pin point what it was, however it was entertaining and I will be listening to the next book to see what happens in the series!

How could the performance have been better?

I really dislike the narrator. She has a nasally quiet voice. Her inflections make me cringe at times. I think I would enjoy the book more if I read it or there was another narrator.

Interesting story...

Though it feels like it's being dragged out. I'm undecided as to whether it works or not. It's kept me entertained, anyway.

Narrator:

Justine Eyre: 2stars- It seems like she has a lot of mispronounced words. Her voices for other characters is mostly cringeworthy. Her male voices sound about 90years old. Her regular voice is too raspy, especially for a teen girl. Overall, I'm not a fan. I've only kept listening because it was in the romance package. It's definitely not worth a credit for audio.

The blame game

I had a lot of issues with this book, perhaps less then with the first one however, but the blame game at the end just really ruined it for me. In addition, the reluctant main charecter never follows her instincts - for two book now she falls into traps , never learning - not very endearing.

Great Story, but I can't take the Narrator

She just can't pull off Daemon with her weak nasally voice. I can't do it anymore.

Better than the first book

so I didn't love the first book but I still needed to know what would happen with Daemon and Katy. This book has more action and more of a story line but it was still frustrating at times. How many times is Daemon going to put his hands on either side of Katy and lean in and almost kiss her. About 50 times in this book. Come one already! Talk about dragging the story out. And Katy is just an idiot in this book. I wanted to slap her so many times. I'm not even sure if I care what happens with her and Daemon anymore. But I'll probably read the next book anyway because I'm an idiot too. The narrator kills me though. Her Daemon voice is hysterical. I can't even hear what he's saying because it's so ridiculous.

Young adult sci fi

Book 2 in series. Must be read in order. Cliffhanger.

Genre is Young Adult. Plot is in the style of Twilight. Alien teen falls for human teen. Evil organizations threaten them and the alien race.

Even though YA is not my thing, I still enjoyed the characters and story. It does drag at times.

The narration is good.

Basically PG rated - some make out sessions but no sexy times really.

**SPOILERS**
I know it's dramatic and all, but I really hate it when a favourite character is killed off.
