synopsis from goodreads
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 believe you know how it is: You finish one awesome book from an author, then you have this strong feeling of withdrawal which leads to you investigating all her or his other books to get back this awesome feeling while reading her/his books.
Yes, it happened to all of us and this is how I ended up reading Obsidian, although I couldn’t care less about Aliens at first. But I did care so much for Mrs Armentrout who enchanted me with her writing! Yesterday, I told you how much I loved her first book Half-Blood and now I’m going to tell you how much I loved Obsidian!
Sweet Katy – who is not afraid to talk back..
Katy is a Book Blogger which I found super cute! She always threw in references like Oh its Wednesday, I have to put together a quick WoW. It was cute and sweet and of course for me easy to connect with her. But that’s not it, Katy also is very strong although she wouldn’t let herself say it out loud – but she is strong and I loved her instantly. Besides, she managed to not kill Daemon for what she deserves respect!
Daemon! You never met a character like him before..
He’s an ass, a jerk – he’s outrageous but.. underneath all this bad attitude and bad-assery (I’m beginning to love this work) he’s also super hot – swoon worthy hot! At the same time there is something about his attitude that makes you want to stick to him and figure out why the heck he’s such an ass. Seeing him interact with his twin sister Dee (who’s a sweetie!) and seeing him so super protective makes you wish to look into him deeper and discover what he has hidden.
Truly. He was an incredible character and blame the awesome talent that is Jennifer L. Armentrout
who managed to create a jerk that you sill want to get to know deeper.
Aliens, Love, Friendship and secret societies.
Yep, I believe we have everything here what we’d need for a good story and damn it – it was such a page turner! In the beginning the only thing we want to know is Daemon’s secret and why he’s such an ass. Then, the more and more we learn about him, his sister and the others we want to learn more. The story was very fast-moving with lot’s of scenes that were thrilling, romantic and mesmerizing! The story and the plot managed to grab me and soon after a few pages there was no way I would be able to put it down until I knew the end.
Plus…there was hot ass Daemon in the story …
This was an epic tale of YA SciFi Alien story with epic characters and a thrilling intense plot! Katy was sweetness and easy to love and Daemon was like no other character before, bad attitude – outrageous but I still managed to fall deep in love with him! Like really deep….
So, I tell you all have to meet Daemon because you don’t want to miss figuring him out. I fall head over heals in love with Jennifer L. Armentrou
first when reading Half-Blood but it ended up in a full-blown love after Obsidian! She’s an awesome storyteller and I can’t freaking wait for more!
is a Novella (she said a long novella ) which is set before the happenings of Obsidian is out and available since yesterday!!. But I strongly recommend reading it after you read Obsidian! I believe it would spoil a lot of fun and discoveries for you. Onyx
, Book 2 comes out in August – which seems horribly far away… but I saw on Twitter that Jennifer L. Armentrou
will be at BEA in June – I’m sooo excited to meet her and I try to act mature and not like a fangirl!
