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 thoughts:

Well, in the second installment of the Lux series, Kitten a.k.a. Katy is trying to fool herself thinking he can actually manage to stay away from Daemon. I'm not buying it!

It's been quite a while since I've finished this book, so I'd be lying if I said I remember all the details. But there's Daemon, the dimwitted type of man and alien kind. It doesn't matter whether he's being sweet or annoying or trying to be annoying or purpose, he makes you wanna go, "stop it and let's make out!"

In the previous book, Obsidian, Katy had come face-to-face with death, and there's the "bizarro connection" between her and Daemon since he saved her life. She thinks his attraction to her is due to this connection only. There's also a new boy in town, Blake, and Daemon's jealousy outbursts become more often than before. Of course, even this doesn't help Katy understand that he's so fallen for her. Sometimes I wanna yell in her face, "you're the main female character, he's the main male character; who else is he supposed to fall in love with?!"


I really like that the action apart from the lovey-dovey stuff is good in this series as well. Otherwise, it's total falling-in-love overload and doesn't sit well with me. In Onyx, a change kicks off in Katy. Her fear of being discovered increases, and they dig more into what might have happened to Daemon's brother, Dawson. 

Of course, in the end you'll find yourself like this:
