"Everything is about to change."

I didn't think it was possible to love Daemon Black any more but I was wrong. *SWOON*

I was beyond excited when I received this ARC and I couldn't wait to see what was in store for Katy and everyone's favorite glow-worm, Daemon Black. 

Just like any other JLA book, I read this in one sitting because I couldn't put it down! I was laughing, crying and clutching my chest by the time I was done.  Seriously, CLUTCHING MY CHEST at the end! *cries* 

Onyx picks up where Obsidian left off with the DOD sniffing around and the tension between Katy and Daemon is just as hot and feisty as ever. *fans face* He's dead set on proving to her that his feelings are legit while she's convinced he's only doing it as a result of their weird connection.  He can't really have feelings for her can he?  This IS Daemon we're talking about...  (If Katy isn't into Daemon's affections, I'll make like Katniss, and step up, "I VOLUNTEER! I VOLUNTEER!!")  

The saucy Luxen is just as snarky as ever and even funnier that he was in Obsidian. We get to see a lighter side of him (no pun intended) and jealous Daemon is laugh-out-loud, snort-liquid-through-your-nose hilarious!  One of my FAVORITE scenes is when Daemon "helps" Katy with her blog. (My stomach hurt from laughing so hard it counted as my ab workout for the day.) And the scene at the Thai restaurant was a true "Daemon Invasion". *giggles*  

So much has changed for Katy in a short amount of time and she's struggling to make sense of it all and just "deal", really.  Add to that, her feelings for Daemon which run hot and cold, her Mom's love life, and the new guy at school whose not only hotsauce but showing serious interest in her and you can't blame a girl for wanting a slice of normal pie. (Especially if it's served up surfer dude a la mode. *wink*)

The problem is that everyone seems to be hiding something and the new guy, Blake is no exception.  When Daemon voices his "concerns" about Blake, Katy will have to choose between trusting herself or trusting Daemon and her choice could end up costing more than just her own broken heart. That would be the least of Katy's concerns if who she saw really is still alive and Daemon finds out because it'll mean the DOD will be on them faster than a fly on a cow pie.  She knows he'll stop at nothing until he gets the truth but what will the truth cost them?

In this action packed and often *face fanning* sequel, Katy and Daemon will discover that the DOD may not be their biggest threat after all.  Secrets are revealed, love declared, and friendship put to the ultimate test, forcing them to make choices that could have devastating results for them as well as those they love.  The only thing they know for sure is that everything is about to change...CLUTCHES.CHEST!

  1. I see this popping up everywhere! It sounds really fun! I love books that can make me physically react while reading (even when I'm reading in public and become incredibly embarassed).

  2. The series is really enjoyable. Obsidian is first, Shadows is the novella but takes place BEFORE Obsidian so you could read it first. :)
