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…
If the first book was the beginning of an epic adventure,the second one showed us a little bit about how the Luxen's life can be,but at the same time it brings something more special and unknown into picture:the hybrids.If you thought only Luxen and Arum exist,then you better read this book ASAP.Because what happened in this book was amazing!
I really liked the first book and i hoped that the second one will be better,but i never expected to be full of crazyiness and more.The thing is,when everything involves Daemon Black nothing can be easy or simple.This book was full of surprises.
When i started reading Onyx i never expected to feel so happy (i'm not sure how to explain this right now,but it did feel like something huge happened.Don't ask why!)everytime i've read about how Daemon tried to show Katy that he was serious,but what left me speechless staring at the book is what happened with Katy.Yes,i thought it was weird what she did in Obsidian,but now i'm totally shocked.Good god!In the end i couldn't put the book down,so i almost finished it in one day,but i had to stop myself or else i wouldn't have done anything else besides reading..But how can i?This books are addictive and when Daemon is involved,try to ignore that.I couldn't.
Katy?Almost like in the first book,too stubborn for her own good,but different at the same time.Her character changed step by step.Somehow,despite all the mistakes she's done,Katy started to change more.She was a little naive,especially when it came to Blake and how he could have helped her,but i do have to admit that somehow her intentions were good,coming from a good place.And the fact that she started to have powers?It was mind-blowing and at the same time hilarious.Why?Because i couldn't stop myself from laughing out loud every time she did something,when she was losing control.Yeah,it was hilarious.There were moments when i wanted to strangle Katy for being so stubborn,but i know now that she's trying to be carefull.
Most people think that Obsidian and Onyx are just two books about a girl and an alien.Well,let me tell you something:this books are freaking incredible.This book wasn't just about aliens and how they were fighting to survive.Not ,it was more than that.It was about true love and true friendships between two people who had to do anything in order for them and those who they love to survive.
Daemon?Charming and handsome,exactly like in the first book,but a little annoying,his character evolved and now i have to say that i see him clearly.His pain.His wish to keep the Luxen safe,especially Dee.His way of acting around Katy,loving her but never wanting to risk her life,something that changes in this book(Something that i like very much!)
Dee?Same sweet,adorable,but alien,Dee i met in the first book.I liked the fact that she had free reign whenever she was close to Katy and she didn't have to control her powers.It was a little funny.
Blake?I never liked him.Why,oh,why Katy didn't listened to Daemon?Well,because she's stubborn!From the beginning i knew something was off about him,even if he didn't act strange .He was too bold and too easy.And when he started to train Katy?It was a little crazy,especially the way he was acting like a lunatic.
Despite Katy's stubborness,everything was amazing,but...there is always a but.The way things happened with Blake(i never liked him anyway) reminded me that even if everything that happened complicated everything between Katy and Daemon,they always end up together.But that's the beauty in this book.They fight and try to kill each other,but they can't get enough of each other.
This book was the perfect beginning of something amazing and beautiful.
I mean we learn a lot more about DOD and what they do,about Dawson and Bethany,and of course about the connection between Daemon and Katy.A lot more then that,but you have to read the book to find more!
It was a pleasure to read this book and i'm sure i will do iti again and again until Opal will be published.
I love how everything was written.How some scenes were described and how the characters evolved .But what i loved the most was what happened between Katy and Daemon.
It's funny how they react,so why not talk about it ,right?The hybrid and the alien..It couldn't be better.But the truth is they are two people who are trying to survive and they stopped running from what they want.
