Tina Reviews: Onyx and Opal (Lux #2 & 3)

By Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genres: Science Fiction, Aliens, Paranormal, Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult
Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Review by: Tina



The lovely Gennifer Eccles convinced me to continue with the series. And I have to admit I was a bit curious how the story will proceed.

Onyx continues to remind me of the tv show Roswell. In Obsidian, Daemon heals Katy and now she's showing similar alien abilities (how similar is that to one of the storylines in Roswell?). A new love interest is introduced. He explains to Katy about her new abilities and helps her develop her "hybrid mutated" powers. While Katy is busy training every day with Blake, sparing no time for her friends or mother, Dee is growing closer in her relationship with Adam, and Daemon finds out Beth and Dawson are still alive. 8 months time go by and we're seeing Katy stronger in her Lux abilities. Alas, all good things come to an end. The discovery of implants and hidden motives end the book on a big cliffhanger.

Opal -
So the last book left us with Daemon trying to rescue Dawson and this book Dawson rescues his girlfriend Bethany. The plan behind the rescue is not bad. It just took them a long prep time; another 8 months time. With Blake back in the picture, you sense some kind of betrayal will happen. I'm liking the strong romantic side of Daemon which makes reading this book worthwhile. The big shocker is realizing none of Katy's classmates are safe. One by one, they disappear or fall ill. And I think we will slowly find out what happens to them later in the story.


  1. It's such a great feeling when I convince people to read something! It makes me feel accomplish, haha! :D Thank you so much for the shout-out. I didn't realize that connection to Rosewell! I watched the series after reading the books, so I never realized. The romantic side of Daemon is full force from the third book and on! So did you like the second and third books more than the first?

    1. Yes! Thank you!! I felt the story progressed further and flowed better. But they were enjoyable and fast reads :D I clearly miss the significance of the "8 months" reference, I'm not sure how this time frame is relevant; seems like the author couldn't push the kids into college fast enough haha.
