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....

✫✫ 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.

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.

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!!

5 Onyx Stars

I love book 2’s in almost any series and here is why.
1. We already know and love the characters.
2. We don’t have to have a lot of backstories to catch up.
3. Because we get more from the characters we fell in love with.

SO it is not surprising that Onyx is fantastic and a perfect continuation of this series.
I love how Daemon is exactly who he was from book one and so is Kat. They are still witty and snarky to each other but there is also that underlying connection we are all rooting for.

We meet some new characters and we learn more about the Lux and something we didn’t think could happen and boy howdy you do not want to miss the fight scenes just saying you will be surprised who can kick some serious booty.

That ending makes me scream because I need to jump to book 3 like NOW!

I like the narration but I think sometimes her tone just doesn’t match with teenagers.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

This series is soo fluffing good!

This series is so fluffing good! I loved the characters bore that i can explain. They are so well developed. Jennifer has this way of extracting all the emotion from you that she can so that you feel wholly invested in the book. I . Loved . It. I have read the whole series and can tell you it is one of my faves. Keep going!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Better than the first, and the first was awesome!

I came to these books late, but I'm so glad I finally did! This book was particularly funny and endearing. I really, really enjoyed it and the narration is fabulous!
