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 o

She's supposed to be more curvy with round hips and bigger bust. Her hair is supposed to be much lighter, light brown not black and Katy never wears make up. She is more of a nerdy chick and the model here is certainly not. It's a bad model choice for this series.(less)

Tough Critic Book Reviews
HANDS DOWN, feet down, face down, ass down the best book Jennnifer L. Armentrout has ever written (yes, the extra "n" in Jennifer was originally a typo, but I decided to leave it in because that's just how awesome she is). I've said before that I'm riding the Jennifer L. Armentrout train going full speed ahead, but now I own the frickin railroad! GREAT ALIEN BALLS OF FIRE!

I must warn you, Onyx drips with sexual tension. Just when I thought the witty banter between Daemon and Kat couldn't get any

Where to start, where to start? Well, how about HOW FREAKING AMAZING JLA IS!!!
Onyx is PERFECTION! Pure Genius!!! I thought Obsidian was amazing but Onyx is breath taking. It's a non-stop rollercoaster ride that tears at your emotions. But did I ever want to get off this ride?? NO! 
I absolutely loved Katy! She became such a strong and admirable character! She is flawed and I love it!! Who wants a perfect heroine

I didn't think Jennifer Armentrout's wittiness, cleverness and ingenuity could step beyond the already above-average line, but with Onyx, she somehow managed to! Now I always say this about Miss Armentrout's books, I don't know how she does it, but she manages to write a bestselling novel in a span of a few weeks/months

By New Year's Day,you'll have admitted that you're madly,deeply,irrevocably,and irresistibly in love with me.

It's only fitting that I go back to my roots and kick this review off Obsidian Style

Up First : Bad Cop

1. The first half of this book sucked hard. Go on, try to convince me that it didn't. I won't be moved. Not one interesting thing happened in the first 40 or so percent. Sexual tension? If sexual tension means Katy saying the same thing over and over and pushing Daemon away, even when he was being nice to her, that's some of the worst sexual tension I've ever seen. Where did book 1 Katy go? I mi

Horny women with prurient interests but too prudish for erotica, rejoice! It’s the second coming of Twilight! Everyone else, stay FAR FAR away.

Reviewer’s Note: I’ve decided against doing a full review of Onyx. I’m simply not a fan of Jennifer Armentrout, and I don’t know why I keep getting tricked and/or guilted into giving her books chance after chance expecting to finally like one. Obviously, there’s a lot I could talk about, like say, the complete lack of a plot in the first eighteen chapters

Wow. Favorite new Paranormal Romance series, thy name is Lux. I've said before that from the moment I first started seeing the Lux books floating around, I avoided them. But the thing that finally convinced me to check it out was Julie's review over at All Things Urban Fantasy, where she said, "As much as I enjoyed OBSIDIAN, ONYX was even better." Confession time: Sometimes I start a book series just to get to a certain book in that series. The best example would have to be Jul

My feelings for Daemon right now:







My thoughts for those who do not ship Daemon and Katy when I read all the cute scenes of them together:



TOO ADORABLE - I CAN'T TAKE ANYMORE OF DAEMON'S WICKED-HOT-BAD BOY-AND-DOWNRIGHT-GORGEOUS ACT!!

This was such a cute short story - I was so depressed when it got to the end!! I wanted more!!! Can't wait until the next book - Jennifer's writing is addictive!

Onyx is the second book in the much-loved Lux series. Action, mystery, romance and a whole load of aliens. Be prepared for another dose of Jennifer L. Armentrout's awesomeness!

In Obsidian, Katy met Dee and Daemon, brother and sister with a dangerous secret. Now, in Onyx, Katy's relationship with the two siblings is stronger than ever, especially her all-too-hot relationship with Daemon. But Katy and Daemon are connected, due to a deadly battle against the arum, and Daemon is determined to prove

❝That I'm lucky, because the person I can't get out of my head, the person who means more to me than I can, is still alive. She's still there. And that's you.❞


Oh boy oh boy! Let me just start off by saying that this book definitely had its improvements including character development, much more shocking and intense moments, more Katy and Daemon moments, and a less jerk-face known as Daemon Black. By that, I mean he isn't the same asshole he was in Obsidian. Even though this book had many more

"People who didn't heart books didn't understand".

I would have to agree with Kat on this one, for anyone who isn't an avid reader will never understand the power of a single book and how it can be treasured among the finest jewels on earth. They are created from the guts, dreams and drive of an author. Printed and bound for our entertainment, for our pleasure and for our escape.

Increíblemente entretenido, con mucha fluidez y una historia rápida de leer. Siento que este libro mejoró con respecto al anterior, la protagonista definitivamente ha evolucionado, la historia tiene nuevos matices y el lector no solo conoce mas de la historia de los personajes, sino que también entiendes mas la dimensión del mundo creado por la autora y hasta que punto están implicados tanto el gobierno como los luxen.

Espero leer pronto el tercer libro de la saga!

"By New Year's Day, you'll have admitted that you're madly, deeply, irrevocably, and irresistibly in love with me."

This is the book that we will have a game-changing by Daemon, while Katy suffers by alien flu or something like that.

In other words, Daemon will start pursuing Kate and Kate (after she had almost died in the previous book) will discover that she has some strange powers that she was not supposed to have and she cannot control.

Yes, Daemon will still be a jerk most of the times. That

•4.5 αστεράκια•
Λάτρεψα αυτή τη σειρά από τα πρώτα κιόλας κεφάλαια του οψιδιανού, αλλά το δεύτερο της μέρος ξεπέρασε κάθε προσδοκία μου! Ακόμα περισσότερη δράση, πολλές αποκαλύψεις και γερή δόση έρωτα.
Η μόνη μου ένσταση είναι στο χαρακτήρα της Κατ, η οποία έκανε τη μια βλακεία πίσω από την άλλη. Σε αντίθεση με τον Ντέιμον, που ήταν τρυφερός, γλυκός και ταυτόχρονα καυστικός και με πολύ χιούμορ.

Oh, holy alien babies everywhere......this book is AMAZING!

I'm running out of ways to tell you how amazing this author’s work really is because Onyx really does not disappoint. It’s thrilling, heart-pounding and just as explosive as Obsidian - if not even better and it will leave you wanting more and more!

Onyx starts pretty much where Obsidian finishes. Katy is trying to move on with her life but it’s hard when she has Daemon Black trying to win her over at every turn. Katy is convinced that D

This book was very good but much sadder and action packed than the first one. I had some time in between so there is going to be a full long review. I'd had to say that there were much more action. It might have been because I understood the human better than the bad aliens that they were fighting in the first book. Katy is determined to not love Daemon despite their connection. Daemon feels the same way. Katy then meets a new boy at school who understands Katy's condition and problem. Blake sta ...more

DNF at 60%. I think I'm done with this series. The plot with the DOD and aliens is creative and I still like a lot of elements (like Katy's friendship with Dee) but I just cannot stand Daemon.

The guy is a complete asshole and does not improve. I'm glad he's not explicitly abusive or as big of a jerk as some other YA guys, but not being the worst thing ever doesn't really redeem him. Katy goes on a date with another guy, so Daemon shows up to sabotage it and dump noodles on the guy. And guys be

I apologise in advance to my co-blogger Kara (who has already banished me from her life forever for this) for bashing on her favourite series and her book boyfriend, but I have to call it quits here.

I probably would've gobbled up this story when I was 16 years old and new to the YA world, but enough is enough. I've had it with overbearing, overprotective, controlling boyfriends. I tried, but I absolutely cannot stand Daemon Black. He is such a whingeing child. Everything has to go his way
