More Daemon? Oh yes please! My Review of Onxy (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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…
I'm a Jennifer Armentrout fan through and through. The love runs deep for this author's books. I read Obsidian in a day, devoured every page, and grew an obsession of fan girl proportions. There was no doubt in my mind, I was gonna love part 2! Oh heck yeah, I loved part 2! Who wouldn't want a little more Daemon in their life? ;)

I'll be honest, it took me a while to write this review. How do you some up all the "awesome" that I felt while reading this book into a few paragraphs. The praise could go on and on. This isn't the first time I've called a JLA book AMAZING! I totally enjoyed returning to the world of the Lux. Onxy was a great edition to the series. 

I absolutely LOVED Daemon's determination as far as his relationship with Katy. Even more so, I loved Katy's determination to avoid that relationship. Lots of laughs along the way, and frustrated grumbles as well.. Just say you love him already Katy!! Sheesh! Throw in all the tension that Blake brought into the mix, the pages just kept turning!!!! 

Everything led up to an ending that had me wiping away tears of sadness, tears of joy, shock shock shock! That ending was AWESOME!!! Thank you JLA for writing an ending that left me aching for the next book! I NEED the next book! Who knows whats gonna happen next! All I know is, it's gonna be EPIC!


  1. Great review! :) :) I felt the same about Katy, I was all like "Come ON, admit it that you like him already" and that stupid connection thing - she was somehow annoying. But I loved the book so so much <3

  2. Great review! I loved this book, but I felt the same way. Katy needed to just give in already haha.

  4. I can't believe I haven't read this one yet. I think I want to buy a print copy. I've been trying to win a copy, but alas, no luck. But I'm super glad you loved it, Amanda! I can't wait to read Onyx for myself!

  5. I'm reading Onyx right now and I'm pretty much yelling at Katy to hook up with Daemon already... Not to mention hating Blake with passion. It is quite unbelievable to me that you consider this funny!! I am taking this so seriously, it's really ridiculous...
