After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different… And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger… and they know it.

I am struggling to write this review majorly because I have so many emotions whirling around I don’t know where to start. Before I continue with my review let’s just take a second to appreciate the cover ( the guy especially 😛 )

The book starts right where Onyx left. For the first few pages it was slow but really loved the way love bloomed between Daemon and Katy. His protective nature had not budged but he learnt to give her the space. Points for that Daemon. The pain Dawson goes through is understandable and Daemon is doing everything under his alien power to keep him sane. But the credits go to Katy for coming up with ideas that shall actually work. From 40 page or so plot caught on like wildfire.

I had FOUR BIG SHOCKERS in this book .shock

 

  1. BLAKE. Seriously? Him again? I thought he was a good riddance but then he turns up to school as if nothing had happened. Daemon and I did not take this likely. “Daemon curtailed from stabbing and gave the chance to escape. To have a life ! But you BLAKE screw not just yourself but my mind too by making a re-entry. I was better off without your presence in the book”, were my exact thoughts.
  2. WILL. The mutation didn’t hold as expected and therefore wants his revenge by taking on Katy.
  3. CARISSA. I never expected this to happen and it still remains a mystery to me.
  4. The Ending. I was preparing for something similar to second book. Taking on DOD was not a good idea but have to try for Dawson. For Beth. I agree without a casualty there wouldn’t be any teeth clinging moment but …but… does it have to be Katy? Why can’t it be Blake. He moreover deceived them again. At that second I didn’t have to be a Luxen to shoot my rage at him.

Reading this book tapped on my every emotion

  1. I smiled
  2. I got angry
  3. I cried
  4. I giggled
  5. I shouted
  6. I felt happy
  7. I felt sad
  8. I felt pity
  9. I fell for Daemon again
  10. I freaking loved!

But i did find some loop holes in the story line and unanswered questions. If Dawson had been captured and tortured with Onyx for a year why hasn’t he developed any tolerance ? How did the underworld mafia kid Luc have the power to tamper the DOD’s security ? Did Blake have any feelings for Katy or he just faked it all the while? Who mutated Carissa and why ? ugh.. so many .

I have to admit this book had a huge impact on me and I didn’t want to continue for 3 days not because the story is bad but because it is too good for me to take in.

My rating

BOOK REVIEW – ONYX(LUX #2)

Hey everyone ! Here is what I felt when I read onyx

ONYXAuthor : 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…

 REVIEW

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

Aliens –5/5

Twists –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,

Percy Reads,

Obsidian- The LUX #1

OBSIDIANStarting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Review

Hello everyone! I am super hyper to type this review ! Reason ? I went head over heels for Daemon, the plot got me go twisted up there and I actually finished the second book before I typed this because it was freakishly good that I never wanted it to stop . Its been in a while that I got so attached . Trust me – this is one hell of a read .

And Its official I am having a new book boyfriend !!

Plot

Though many feel this book is similar to twilight I believe otherwise . More of story, more of depth in the characters, more of twists , more of everything ! It is totally a new take on aliens. The story revolves around Luxen – The aliens who now take shelter on earth as their planet lux got destroyed . The first few pages are a bang ! We have our Katty shifted to new town and becomes the neighbor to the Blacks. And whoa do I have to tell her first encounter with Daemon? They get on the wrong side of each other right away but at the same time the need to be together is hunting them down. Form time and again Daemon happens to be the dark knight (or in this case should I say “light” knight) who saves the damsel in distress. And there are the Arums – the bad aliens who kill for power . The revelation of who Daemon really is comes with a price to Katty and whether or not they survive the dangers at bay and what consequence it brings forms the rest . I got to tell the climax was like watching a movie. I could visualize myself in there ,with my heart pounding on what would happen next. Every time i settled on ” ok i got this , this is gonna happen next .” It went puff  the plot laughed at me like “got ya! “

Characters

Katty – Firstly she is a book blogger (yay ! I could totally relate myself to her ) Secondly she is one inquisitive, bold ,head strong girl . Who would go running down the aisle right into the gates of death? But she did to save the friends she loved.She so earned my respects.

Daemon Black is all a girl could ask for. A protective brother,a super hot alien  and of course a douche bag which is kind of drawing in a manner I never expected ! And the irresistible pokes he made to sway Katty . Personally if someone did so to me I would get pissed but it was DAEMON. Every move he made , every word he uttered made me go tingly. I am so damn crushing over him. All the bad boy ,top notch sexy , alien super powers are way to overboard for my little heart to take in (*taking a min off to Cool myself down*).

Dee Black is a bubbly, always happy ,take it easy kind of girl. Her attempts to befriend Katty, her little tricks to make Daemon earn “bonus points” were so admirable. If Dee hadn’t been there then I think this book would have lost its charm

Stars

Do I have to put it in so many words ? On a scale of 1-5 definitely a 6 !

6stars

Thanks for reading down till the end .

Until next time ,

  1. CRYSTALLUM( PRIMORDIAL PRINCIPLES-1)

27705018AUTHOR: LANEY McMANN

Kadence Sparrow wasn’t born a devil’s child-she was turned into one. Now, she’s hiding from the truth, and running for her life.

For years, Kade’s true nature has lurked behind an illusion, so when her dad gets another job transfer, she knows the drill: no close friends, no boyfriends, and most importantly: don’t expose what she is. Ever. Keeping secrets is easy. Lies are second nature. So is the loneliness-and the fear, but when the Shadows attack, and Kade meets Cole Spires, she could expose everything she’s trying to hide.

As one of the Celestial Children, Cole lives by an oath: defend the Ward, protect the Primordial race, guard the gateways, and stick to his own. Everything else is a distraction, and besides, he’s lost enough. Cole’s job is clear, and no one his age does it better. So, when he meets Kade in a club downtown, he assumes she just wants his attention. Most girls do, but Cole soon realizes … Kade isn’t like most girls.

The children of heaven and hell are living among us, fighting an age-old war. And falling for someone from the opposition is not an option. But a chance encounter between Kade and Cole will blur the rules, as Kade’s journey to keep her truth hidden catapults them together and into a web of lies, forcing her to not only face the demon inside her, but to answer the hardest question of all.

Which is thicker-blood or water?
