Book Description:

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…

My Review:

Words can’t express how much I LOVE this series. That’s LOVE with a capital L. I read Obsidian a few months ago and (because I’m constantly broke) reserved the next two books at my local library. Typically the third one, Opal came through first and I was SO SO SO tempted to read it before Onyx, but I’m glad I didn’t 🙂

Daemon and Kate still fight all the time, but it’s being to turn into something else. Kate thinks it’s because of the connection that the two have. After all, Daemon did heal Kate and now at the end of the last book, she blasted an Arum. So…obviously there’s something up with Kate.

Enter Blake!

Blake has also been healed by a LUX and starts to train with Kate to control her powers. Daemon hates this idea, (with good reason.) and tries to convince Kate that she doesn’t need him. She doesn’t listen.

There where several points during this book that Kate really annoying. She basically played with Daemons emotions.

“I love YOU!”

*five minutes later*

“No! I love HIM!”

Okay, maybe I exaggerated a little a lot. I had heard that Kate was indecisive in the second book from other bloggers AND Kate is just made of awesome, so I wasn’t too put off by it.

Can’t wait to read Opal and then I have two other books by Jennifer on my kindle! Lucky me! How many books does that woman write a year? 10? 20? All the better for us!

Random thoughts from me (that aren’t funny.) (Don’t say I didn’t warn you.):

Behind every blog, there lives a blogger who may or may not be in a relationship with an alien.

Does being in a relationship with a HOT alien come with the book reviewing job, or is mine just lost in the post?
