Onyx

I had a very, very hard time reading Clockwork Prince, I knew I have to read another book or else I’ll be stuck forever and suffer another reading slump. I decided to read Onyx because it’s part of my 2014 Challenge and crossing out one from my list is a big consolation from the annoyance CP gave me.

Read from February 18 to 20, 2014

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 should have picked this up first because it was waaaay better than CP. I didn’t expect that much because most often than not, sequels either turns out as meh or it totally sucked. But Onyx is one of the rare sequels I’ve read that is better than its prequel. I didn’t think it’s going to be a quick read but it was so entertaining, reading it was such a breeze.

Armentrout started Onyx where Obsidian left off, she reminds the readers of what happened in the first book in snippets. It wasn’t difficult to get on with the story even though I’ve read the first book years ago. Unlike the first book, Onyx focused more on Katy and Daemon’s relationship. Katy was a little annoying at first because she’s such a denial queen. She did turn out well as the story goes by. The real star of the novel is actually Daemon. Homaygad. This guy is so lovable. We see a different Daemon Black from the Daemon we met in Obsidian. I fell in love with him in this book! Aside from being sexy, this overprotective extraterrestrial being knows how to be romantic. He is just so manly. Fangirling much? Hahaha!

Amazing: I’m mesmerized.

Amazing: I’m mesmerized.

There are plot holes in the story but overall the novel is enchanting enough I’m willing to let them slide.  If you haven’t started this series yet, you should. It’s a fun, light read.

P.S. Today is my blog’s 3rd birthday! I would have created a separate post but I have to run in a few minutes. Anyway, Daemon is a nice (and hot) way to celebrate my blogversary, right? Here’s to another year of rave and rants!

Happy 3rd Blogversary Off the Wall!
