Starting over sucks.MY THOUGHTS:
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.
(summary taken from Goodreads)
I am now president of the Jennifer L. Armentrout fan club! This book was SO good!
After reading and loving her first novel, Half-Blood, I was ecstatic to find out that she was starting a new series — about aliens and book bloggers too! Obsidian has everything an awesome book should have: a great cast, a twisting plot, and a supernatural element that was honestly unlike anything I've ever read before.
It's probably the biggest understatement ever when I say I adored Katy. She was hilarious, smart, strong, and a book blogger (which I'm sure a lot of us can relate to!). But she was also such a real character that it made it impossible not to connect with her.
And Daemon — well, he's definitely my newest book boy crush! He was infuriating and arrogant and snarky and holy-hot, but he also had those sweet moments that would steal your breath away. I loved his bubbly and sweet sister Dee, and everything about the aliens (or Luxen, as they call them) was so fascinating that I kept wanting more!
Hilarious, witty, and one-hundred percent entertaining, Obsidian was an fast-paced book that left me breathless and craving for more! If you haven't added this one to your To Be Read pile yet, I wholeheartedly recommend that you do because this is one original novel you don't want to miss!
BUY or BORROW?: Definitely a book you want to have on your shelf! Buy it for sure! :)
