Obsidian, By Jennifer Armentrout

Obsidian, By Jennifer Armentrout

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.

My Thoughts:
This book intrigued me but at the same time, since it is about aliens, I was weary. It stayed on my TBR list for a long time before I decided to clear out some of the older ones. Thank goodness the whole series was out once I finally read it. “Obsession,” could have been another name for it. I read it then read the rest of the series. Who knew I liked alien books!?

I think my favorite part of this book and the series as a whole is the fact that the two main characters argue, a lot. I love arguing with people just for the sake of it and it is hard to find other people that don’t get bent out of shape about it. Katy also has a book blog and it was perhaps what started my thinking about having one. I loved reading about someone else who loved books just as much as I did. She is a strong and stubborn girl who is determined to hold her own. Daemon’s sister Dee, is also a great character who stands up to her friends and family for the right to be friends with whomever she chooses.

The description reminds me of the TV show “Roswell” but there were no hand prints and if you do not know what I am talking about then ignore that age telling tidbit. This series is my stand by when I need to pass time at a doctor’s office or while I am bored at lunch. I strongly recommend this book and the whole series.

Warnings:
Sex… eventually in the series… bad language… some… violence… eventually in the series
