Holy shiitake mushrooms! I'm still fangirling over this book. I'm trying to pull myself together to write a coherent review. So here's to hoping this makes sense to anyone other than myself!
First of all, after reading Obsidian I was desperate to get back into Katy's world, but I was a little hesitant at the same time. I feel like this a lot when it comes to series because even though there are so many fantastic series, there are also a lot that only the first book is worth anything. I'm happy to say that Onyx is just as good as Obsidian!!
All of the things I loved about Obsidian are still present in Onyx. Katy is still an adorable (and easy to relate to LOL) book-obsessed blogger. Daemon is still a fiery/jerk/hot/protective alien and the romance between him and Katy is still scorching hot!!! I still say the Lux series is like Twilight with aliens, but with way better writing. I can't get enough of this series!
What I enjoyed most about Onyx is that we get way more information about the Luxen, Arum, and the DOD. Let me just say things are pretty crazy and there are some great twists in this one. I literally read this one in under 24 hours. I devoured this one just like I did Obsidian. Arementrout's writing is very addictive and even though their styles are different, it reminds me of how addicting Colleen Hoover's writing is. I know when I pick up one of their books I will be hooked from page one!
The only thing I was a little sad about was that Dee wasn't in this Onyx more. I really love her character (and I would LOVE to have a bestie like her), but she was pretty absent in this one. I'm pretty sure there was just too much else going on in the story line, but I hope she is in Opal a bit more than she was in this book. After the ending of this one I definitely think that is a possibility. Speaking of endings...
Wow. The ending to this one really left me wanting (needing) more of the Lux series. I'm going to wrap this up now so I can get to reading Opal!
Overall I loved Onyx and this series is fast becoming a new favorite. If you haven't started it yet then do yourself a favor and pick it up!! I recommend it for everyone.
