Review: Obsidian


Obsidian (Lux #1)
 Blurb:
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.
Release Date: December 6,2011

My Thoughts: 

This book can be described in one word......

HOT!

That's the first thing that came to my mind when I finished this book .

By no means is this as good as the awesomeness that is Half Blood but it comes pretty close. After reading this book I realized why I had  pledged lifelong allegiance to this author. All the things  that  Armentrout has written so far has been sooooo  good! 
So even though I'm rating this 4 stars it might have something to do with the fact that I had SKY-HIGH expectations.

I loved the hot chemistry between the protagonists! I loved it when they were fighting!The chemistry and the fights made this book steamy hot! (without even crossing that moral line )

Daemon Black is a welcome addition to the crush list.The best part about him is the fact that he's not EXACTLY a bad boy.After all a guy who goes to huge lengths to keep his sister safe cannot be classified as a bad boy,Can he? Also,he wasn't the "OMG,girl I'm in love with you but you're too good for me" types.I really liked that! His reactions and comebacks to Katy's sarcastic comments were great.

I also loved the fact that Katy loved books and the fact that she found them to be a welcome escape from her day to day activities as I could relate to that.I didn't think the fact that Katy was a blogger was a necessary/essential to this book .It was nice but  if the blogging thing is not mentioned in the next book I wouldn't miss it.There were some parts when for some reason I wasn't very happy with Katy but I forgot my irritation when she said something sarcastic (I love my sarcastic girls!)

One thing I didn't exactly understand is why Katy was so determined to be Dee's friend.It's not that I don't like Dee but I just couldn't understand why she wanted  to be Dee's friend,so badly.I think the reason the author gave for her fascination or determination wasn't convincing enough for me.

Another thing....
NO Love triangle guys(I Think.Was there a love triangle?I didn't think so but that could be because I was too lost in their hot chemistry)  

also NO cliffhanger (per say) but you'll still want to get your hands on the sequel badly!

Overall,a fun hot read with an interesting story.Fans of Jennifer Armentrout and hot guys should definitely pick this one up !

My Rating:                                                    4/5

HOT!


I must say Entangled Publishing is a publisher to keep your eyes on! Their book Touch ,is my pick of the month and I can't wait to get my hands on the sequels of this one and Touch :)
