Publisher's Summary

Daemon's determined to prove what he feels for Katy is more than a product of their bizarro connection. So she's sworn him off, even though he's running more hot than cold these days. But they've got bigger problems.The Department of Defense is here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that Katy and Daemon are linked, Katy's 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 Katy and he can help, but to do so, Katy has to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, Katy's falling for Daemon. Hard.

Katy's seen someone who shouldn't be alive. And she has to tell Daemon, even though he'll never stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them - from her?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies....

Onyx is pure gold

This book is simply A-MAZING! I thought Obsidian was good, but then I listened to Onyx and was blown away. Daemon and Katy are back and better than ever! There were so many twists and turns and OMG moments that this one actually took my breath away. And that ending….whoa! This is such a well written and intense story that many times I forgot this was a YA book. Jennifer Armentrout is an extremely talented writer and this series is a must listen for anyone that enjoys YA PNR.

5 Stars!!

Please change the narrator!

The storyline is great. The narrator is TERRIBLE though. She pronounces Daemon’s name wrong, not to mention other words. She also sounds entirely too old to be in high school. Plus she cannot voice a male character. She sounds too nasally and like she is in pain the whole time. I love JLA though, and this entire series!

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

This was a great continuation of Daemon & Katy story. I loved learning so much about this "world" the author has created. This book was exciting and suspenseful and has so much sexual tension (teenage tension of course)! Katy is probably one of the best YA female leads in Paranormal I've ever read, she is a total bada$$. She is tough, strong and full of courage. Can't wait to read what happens next.

The narration was good, she is a little too old sounding for this story but after 2 books I've grown used to her and it doesn't bother me at all.

Decent story but weird narrator

I really didn’t like how the narrator did the male voices. I assume the main man’s voice was supposed to sound sexy but really just sounded pained and growly, as if she were going to start barking at any second. I’ll continue the series but probably not via audio.

Good Book. Awful Narrator

What did you like best about Onyx? What did you like least?

I feel the story was lacking in some way. Can't really pin point what it was, however it was entertaining and I will be listening to the next book to see what happens in the series!

How could the performance have been better?

I really dislike the narrator. She has a nasally quiet voice. Her inflections make me cringe at times. I think I would enjoy the book more if I read it or there was another narrator.

An excellent turn into suspense and thrill

At the beginning of the series, you might be lured into thinking this is a YA teen romance. Well it is and it is very much not. In the second novel, much more Divergent esq., Armentrout does a fabulous job broadening the focus of the novel with surprising turns. Daemon and Kat are back and they stop the petty fighting and unite on a common goal -- can they overcome the DoD, who can the trust?

Okay, Eyre does a great job narrating. If you are are a fan of hunger games, divergent, steelheart, etc. You will love the series and book 2. Give it a read.

Martyr want to be

The leading female character came across extremely whiny. Constantly making mistakes with the idea she was doing what was right. Very annoying, even her voice was annoying.

Interesting story...

Though it feels like it's being dragged out. I'm undecided as to whether it works or not. It's kept me entertained, anyway.

Narrator:

Justine Eyre: 2stars- It seems like she has a lot of mispronounced words. Her voices for other characters is mostly cringeworthy. Her male voices sound about 90years old. Her regular voice is too raspy, especially for a teen girl. Overall, I'm not a fan. I've only kept listening because it was in the romance package. It's definitely not worth a credit for audio.

Love the book, narrator can go

Why does this narrator insist on reading every book in the genre I like??

Anyway, the actual story is addicting and fun.

The blame game

I had a lot of issues with this book, perhaps less then with the first one however, but the blame game at the end just really ruined it for me. In addition, the reluctant main charecter never follows her instincts - for two book now she falls into traps , never learning - not very endearing.
