Obsidian (Lux #1) ★★★★★

5 stars

I didn’t think I was going to love this book as much as I did. I have been waiting to read this book since I ordered it from Book Outlet, and I’m so happy I finally got to. I’m so so so in love with everything about this book. I’m currently reading the fourth book (its the 21st and I started the first book on the 19th oops) and I couldn’t be more in love.

Goodreads Summary: 

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.

Review: 

I’m going to start off by saying that I absolutely love Daemon Black. I love Katy as well but I just wanted to start this review with how much I love Daemon. This book pulled me out of my reading slump and I’m so happy it did. I can’t explain how much I love this book but I’m going to try to. (I’m probably just going to talk about all the positive things about this book so if that’s not your thing, sorry).

Daemon is completely swoon-worthy, even though he is a complete ass in the beginning. As you get into the book you understand why he is the way he is and for me, there was always a small part that loved him anyway. He doesn’t have to light Katy up like the sun [I’m trying to keep as many spoilers out as possible], but he does (not in an evil mean way mind you). Daemon ends up becoming this caring, lovable character and I defiantly enjoyed the way the author portrayed Katy and his relationship.

Katy is one of the characters I loved reading about from the moment I started Obsidian. She loves to read, blog and garden and to me, all these normal things about her make her more real. I mean real as in, she isn’t a bland 2-dimensional character. Throughout the first book (and the rest of the series), I never  doubted what Katy was doing, and I loved her character the entire time. Katy cares for her mom so much and that stood out to me (I’m not sure why because I’ve read other books where the characters love their moms) and it made her seem like the kind of girl I’d be friends with.

I’d give each character the paragraph they deserve but then this review would be incredibly long. I loved the writing in this book and I enjoyed all the descriptions of the different settings that Daemon and Katy visit.

I highly highly recommend this series to anyone who likes fantasy, paranormal, aliens and romance in their books. There are 5 books in the series as well as 4 small short stories that are really cute to read after the series is finished. I wish I had something that I could say that would make everyone read this series but I don’t, so if this sounds like something you might be interested in I really hope you give it a try.
