Hey everyone ! Here is what I felt when I read onyx
Author : 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 usually go for a formal review and rate at the end of the post but this book makes me break my routine ! So here it goes –
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
Plot – 5/5
Romance – 5/5
Character depth –5/5
If you have been so kind in following my posts lately you would have figured how much I loved the first installment of the series (just in case you haven’t here is the link ). I read Onyx in one single stretch . It had me captivated right from the beginning . And YES !! Damon and Katy are officially in love ! until…
Around the middle of the book there starts something like a love triangle/ confusion. I was like “ Nooooo ! This cant be happening ! Katy please ! you cant be falling for Blake ! His character has shades.I bet he will definitely break your heart if you trust him! You have Damon for heaven’s sake! ” And Damon turned into all romantic bringing flowers to school, tiny gifts *heart flips* . Though Katy had her reasons for hanging out with Blake I still detest it *ugh*. Raged filled when Katy showed a blind eye to not once but twice over what Blake did !And when he did show his true self, my inner self quoted, “I knew it! YOU traitor !”. At the same time a tear trickled down over the loss that had come as a consequence .
In the beginning of this series I told myself we had only one enemy to worry about .Damn I was wrong and the Arums are little to worry about. The ending was so not I expected ! I mean I did the usual parts but the bang ? uh-huh never even imagined so ! I felt tricked , lied , deceived, fobbed and hurt . When everything subsided there was yet another twist and I could take no longer . I took a few minutes off from reading to get my heart beat down. Jennifer sure knows how to make us live the story .
And its official . Though I have not yet completed the LUX goes into my favourite series of all time hands down with no second thought!
Thanks for reading down till here.
Until next time,
When a killer strikes from the shadows young prince Colmeron is torn from the comfort of his father’s castle and sent into hiding with the man he’s sure is the traitor. Secluded in a distant refuge, Col comes to know the power of his ancestors, the Earthkings: men with the power to shape and control the land. But will that be enough to save the kingdom when an ancient enemy returns to free their long captive master?
First I would like to thank StoryCartel( https://storycartel.com/ ) for providing me with this copy. I am not going to lie ! In the beginning I was in a little dilemma whether to read it now or put it up in my tbr list for the holidays as I have my end semester exams going on . And as you can say from this post the former won the battle of my minds . And am happy that i chose to read because such a book should not sit in the shelves .
This book like any other young adult novel is filled with mystery,magic ,power ,giants and of course the Blackbirds . But what makes it to stand apart is that …(wait for it …) Its a bedtime story ! Yes you got me right . The writing is so intricate and drifts to several fables along with the story line . I think i am going to compile all of the short tales together for a reread . Yes i am going to do that some time soon . It felt so satisfying to imagine and bring life to the words .
The lead character(Colmeron /Colby/Col) is finely scripted .Emotions are very relate-able ,starting off as a care free prince who loves to prank his brother slowly moves on to become devastated when disaster strikes the door .This gets him clueless ,lost and to be filled with rage only to learn he is going to be the NePrince . The death of characters who I thought were leads got me off guard every time and from then on the confusion on whom to trust and whom not to made me turn the pages .In addition the story takes you across the boundary through the winter storm , the waving seas , lone islands ,shadowy forests and dusty roads . Surely the traveller in me had masterful journey .
Did i love reading it ? Yes but I expected a bit more of action-clashing of the Good and the Bad . We only get glimpses in the short fables for more than half way through the story . Therefore in my opinion it makes it more like a mystery novel??!
Get it from a girl who read this book in a day with her exams scheduled the next morning -It is a good read with wonderful writing and characters . I would rate it 4 on 5 and definitely recommend to get yourself consumed in the tale before drifting off to dreams .
Thanks for reading down till the end .
