Oblivion by Jennifer L Armentrout1 December 2015
Summary from Goodreads
Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…
I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.
And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.
But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.
Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...
I really didn't think it was possible that I could love this series more. JLA has done it again. . .and again.
I never expect to like the retelling from another POV as much the original but this was so good. Usually I will just skip over parts because I've read them before but this had me hooked from beginning to end. And I have read Obsidian enough to have it memorised. There were so many other parts to the story realised from Daemon's perspective. It's as if it was all planned before, that his story would be told.
I had worried that I would like Daemon less once I saw his side but nope, not even a little. In Origin we get to see into his mind so this was nothing new. JLA really did a great job with dual perspectives and that is something that not all authors can do well.
As with all my JLA reviews, this one is short and sweet because she is just an amazing author and there is nothing else to say other than: PLEASE read this series. :)
