Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Starting over sucks.
When 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.
Daemon 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.
You 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.
I came across Obsidian through twitter recommendations, if I'm given a recommendation that I know comes from a reliable source I tend not to read the synopsis of a book. This way I'm kept in suspense of the story and have no idea of what to expect.
With Obsidian I went in totally blind and quickly began to love the protagonist Katy, as she herself is an avid reader and blogger. But most of all she’s and independent girl who doesn’t rely on anyone and I love how she continuously holds her own! Dee is also very lovable, though very pretty she’s totally innocent and desperate for some love. Unlike his sister Daemon is harder to like as he does tend to push people away but I just found him funny from the start, you could tell there was a reason to why he was so protective on his way of life.
The plot of Obsidian was like a breath of fresh air… I haven’t read many books on aliens and so I thoroughly enjoyed it as the story line was different especially with the two main characters Katy and Daemon arguing as much as they do providing a lot of entertainment.
I can’t wait to start book 2- Onyx now as I have heard it’s even better than the first in the Lux series. If you haven’t read this book yet I thoroughly recommend it, Jennifer Armentrout certainly doesn’t disappoint!
