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…

This Book Contains: Violence, Sexual Situations, Colorful Language, Romance and Death.

My Thoughts:

Just when I thought this series couldn’t get better, boy was I wrong!   I want Daemon to call me Kitten instead.
Daemon is even more incredibly sexy and still extremely cocky.  Although, now we get to see the nice side of Daemon.  He is now determined to show Katy how he feels which, had me giggling like a little girl.   He decides to pursue Katy which made for some of the steamier scenes in the book.

There is also somewhat of love triangle in this book which, just amps up the sexual tension in this book.  There are a lot of twist that you don’t see coming and some that you do.  The action is more intense than the first and the danger even feels more immediate. The characters really grow as individual but also as a group.  They are even more determined to protect each other from the dangers that are coming.
The writing just seems to be getting even better and more intense.   I picked up Onyx and couldn’t put it down until I was done reading!  This series will have you addicted and screaming for more.  It will have you wanting to check out everything that Jennifer L. Armentrout writes to see if  it’s as good.   I for one have to say that all the thing I have read that she write is fantastic.


This series is fantastic and not just because of the romance.  This book will appeal to a lot of different reader.  It is extremely action packed with major kick but action.  It has science fiction aspects with government cover ups and lots of plot twist which will keep you on your toes.  So, I highly recommend this book to just about everyone who likes a great read.  I don’t think anyone will be disappointed.
