Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout

Title: Obsidian
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Date of Publication: May 8th 2012
Genre: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Romance


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've been waiting so long to read a YA book like this where there's no gushy-gushy moments and no declarations of love after a day of knowing each other. The storyline was gripping. I wasn't able to put it down and had it finished in a day.
The only problem I had was that i have to wait to read the next one. :)


I would recommend this book to anyone, those who enjoy paranormal and those who don't. It's not too soppy but for those who like that, don't worry, it's not without it's moments.

  1. Obsidian by Jennifer L.Armentrout is the first book of the Lux series. Daemon is totally stab worthy just like the summary says. He does everything he can to annoy Kat. Daemon is a jerk to everyone but he is always nice to his sister Dee, which is weird right? Daemon is strange like that, guys would normally be nice to the hot girl next door and mean to their sisters but not Daemon. A lot of times in YA, heroines in a story can be whiney and annoying, but not Kat. She was pretty cool. Definitely a strong female character who knows how to handle an arrogant jerk like Daemon.


We love hearing what you guys have to say so why not leave us a comment :) Thanks for stopping by!
