This thread is open to discuss Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout.



Synopsis
eing 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…

Teri | 678 comments I read the first...3? some years back, but it's one of those that I always said I would reread and then finish!!! Super excited!!


Teri | 678 comments I started the first few pages because work tomorrow is going to be long. I had forgotten so much but it's coming back to me. I like Katy.


Teri | 678 comments Chapter 4-how’s it going for you so far?


Jammin Jenny (jamminjenny) | 4149 comments I'll be starting tomorrow - I got too far behind on other books!

Sounds great-i'll get through chapter 12 then, I won't be able to read tomorrow til I get off work, though, so maybe I will go a bit further this evening. I find myself wishing I had reread Obsidian first, I have forgotten a lot..

That's exactly what I think about Blake too!! I guess we'll see. I read through Chapter 12 today. If I get done my two books I need to read again for challenges, I'll pick it up again. It's so hard to put down once you start reading.

Great!!


message 36: by Ora (new) - rated it 4 stars

Ora (oeamis) I'm listening to this. I have read this series a couple of times. I didn't have very pleasant thoughts about Blake after finding out who/what he is. The second time I read it, I kind of felt sorry for him because he was backed in the corner with the DOD and was forced to do. It shows that he at least can put someone's safety above himself, however I really hate what he did and not ask for help so everyone would get what they wanted.
