Starting over sucks.
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.
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.
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.
was such an interesting take on humans & aliens! I liked it a lot.
This is only my second Jennifer L. Armentrout book, but I am simply
adoring this woman! The way that she develops her characters is unlike a
lot of authors I read.
The main characters in this story, Katy
& Daemon, are the perfect duo. They play off of each other so well
and I just how their stories intertwine throughout the book. Originally,
Katy got on my nerves, just a little bit. She was constantly making
"unsmart" decisions and I couldn't quite understand why. But then again,
I actually could. It was just frustrating at times. But as the book
went on, she turned into this kick ass woman/girl. With such ambitious
and fight in her. I definitely appreciated her character, especially her
fierce loyalty and love for Dee (and the other aliens). She is
definitely a character I love.
Moving on to Daemon -- it is very
apparent that Jennifer likes her bad boys. Very apparent, indeed. Daemon
is deemed a bad boy from page one. He is snarky, sarcastic,
flirtatious. But he's also fiercely protective and loyal to those that
he cares about, especially his sister, Dee. I enjoyed him from the
second I was introduced to his character. And the cool part about him is
that he developed quite well throughout the book, but not to the point
where you barely recognized him from the beginning. He's still a jerk,
which I love.
His interactions with Katy, Dee, or anyone were so
much fun to read about. Didn't matter who you were, he was going to be
himself. And I love that.
Obsidian is the perfect introduction to
the Lux series, I honestly couldn't put this book down. I read it in
about 5 hours. Definitely a five-star book for me!
MY RATING: 5 out of 5 stars!
