One of my most favourite reads. EVER.
Wow. This book
You know what made me so crazy about reading this book in the first place? It was the blurb. More specifically, ".....I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth." I'd heard many great things about Jennifer L. Armentrout and I just knew Obsidian would be good! Read it!
I loved the characters! They were fun! They were exciting! Katy, I found that I could really relate to her, like REALLY relate to her. She is a book blogger! A girl who is totally obsessed over books, like me! Katy is courageous and brave. She's always willing to risk her life for others. I don't think she realises how beautiful she really is, like many girls I know! But there's one thing I absolutely hate about her. She lives next door to a hottie. Damn, many girls would loose an arm and a leg to live where she does! Daemon Black. The untouchable boy with amazing green eyes and a tanned chest. *Drooool* Okay, so maybe Daemon isn't the nicest of guys, but he does try. He's not very good with words, his eyes and actions give his emotions away. When you read Obsidian, please read it slowly and savour every single scene with Daemon in it! Onyx, the sequel, isn't going to be out for another few months (August 2012, BOOOO).
Obsidian will leave you breathless and pratically BEGGING for more. The action and steamy romance will hook you in like no other. As pages turn and days past, you will slowly see friendships blossom and relationships begin. You see Katy slowly get over her father's death, eventhough he died 3 years earlier she still feels the loss and emptiness. The fact that her mother works most hours a day does not make those feelings dissappear. I really felt for Katy, she's had a tough life and I don't think she deserved to be treated like the plague when she moved!
Having the whole paranormal twist made it so much more interesting. I don't want to give away toooo much information! But let's just say that Daemon is one fit alien and damn, he lights up my world. <3 Cheesy? Yes, I know.
Overall, Obsidian is a brilliant book and a great start to the Lux series. It has an ending that will have you wondering what will happen next, it will also leave you in a state of desperation. I can not wait until Onyx is released. There has been so many teasers! It's so....teasing! I NEED ONYX! And so will all of you when you get this book! Don't borrow this from the library. You need to buy it, I promise you won't regret it. This book is nothing like Twilight, in case your worried. If you borrow this from the library you will not want to give it back.
