Interesting & Entertaining!

The premises of this book is very interesting and unique. It's more sci-fi, rather than a paranormal, basically superheroes vs supervillains. The storyline is fast-paced, action-packed, and suspenseful. Due to the faster pace of the story, some of the scene transitions weren't very smooth.

The narration by Rodney Falcon is fabulous. He is a very talented narrator with the ability to manipulate his tone to best suit the characters and their emotions.

Wonderful book!!!!

Onyx by Nikki Landis is a wonderful, wonderful story….but, I’m not sure I cared for the Audiobook. The narrator was somewhat dry in his delivery. It was difficult to get interested in the story because he was a little monotone. But, the story itself was MAGNIFICENT!!!!!!

I am volunteering to leave a review for an Advance Copy of this Audio book.

Chemistry

This book was just okay for me. I don’t feel connected with the heroine or their chemistry together. Rodney Falcon did an excellent job at narrating.

Great narrator

4.5 stars!
This book is the first in the series but I still felt like I was missing out a little bit on some of the characters. I like the premise of the book and the main character (Derek/Onyx) was very interesting. The narrator did a fantastic job with the characters and I’d be interested in listening to more books in this series.

***ONYX***

Wow, this story was not what I expected and different in a good way. It had an Xmen meets Super hero/Villians meets Alpha Romance vibe which is a first for me. The story kept you interested and excited to find out what was happening and going to happen. The side characters were great also and it makes me what to find out what is going to happen with them also.
Rodney Falcon did an amazing job and I truly felt the love the H had for the h. He definitely has an amazing voice and it came across very enjoyable even while the girls parts were being read. This was not my first to hear him nor will it be the last!

Unique

Derek gets supernatural powers the day he turns 25. He finds this out when he is attacked. His skin turns black & starts swirling. His new name is Onyx. He's taken to meet with Chaos, the leader of a group trying to defeat Viktor Blackstone, the son of Silas Blackstone who experimented on children at a school he ran. Derek has 2 friends, Devon & his sister Harleigh, that went to this school with him & Devon is about to turn 25. Derek has it bad for Harleigh & he knows that she will turn 25 in a few years & will go thru the same thing. There are several "showdowns" with Viktor & his group. Viktor wants Harleigh, but Derek refuses to let him have her.

This is an extremely unique storyline. The characters are well developed & each one has their own personalities. You get sucked in to the world & I didn't want to put this one down. There is a HEA, but there's also a cliffhanger with one of the other characters. There are spinoff series for this one that I can't wait to pick up.

Hot Action

Great start and interesting take on superhuman altered abilities. Onyx’s story was full of action, love and suspense. Looking forward to reading more from Landis. Falcon’s Narration was excellent.
