Book Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal/Fantasy Romance/Science Fiction)
Date Published: May 8, 2012
Publisher: Entangled Teen

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. 

Obsidian is the first book in the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. This book reminded me so much of Twilight, it's crazy. You have the clumsy heroine, the hot/cold love interest, the quirky sister/best friend, the almost fatal auto incident... lots of similarities. But, with that being said, I completely enjoyed it anyway. There was enough different that I didn't feel like I was totally reading the same book. I love how Katy doesn't take Daemon's crap. I'm so glad this isn't an insta love situation. Insta attraction? Heck yeah! But, she's not just rolling over after he's acted like a complete jerk. She calls him out on it. As much as i love Twilight, and you know I do.. I think Bella let Edward off too easy most of the time. Katy doesn't. She's really trying hard not to like him too. It's entertaining. Also, their bantering is fun to read. I adore Daemon's sister. She is definitely an Alice. Obsidan has been on my pile for years now. I don't know why it took so long for me to finally pick it up, because it's always piqued my interest. I'm glad I finally did.

Eyes still on me, he tipped his desk forward even further. "Guess what?"


"I checked out your blog."

Oh. Dear. Baby. Jesus. How did he find it? Wait. More importantly was the fact that he had found it. Was my blog now googleable? That was awesome sauce with an extra heaping of sauce. "Stalking me again, I see. Do I need to get a restraining order?"

"In your dreams, kitten." He smirked. "Oh wait, I'm already starring in those, aren't I?"

I rolled my eyes. "Nightmares, Daemon. Nightmares."
