Obsidian (Lux #1)

Title: Obsidian (Lux #1)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Entangled Teen

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.

Wow. Just wow. This book was totally unexpected cause I didn't figure it was this good. I have never read a book which had to with aliens and once I found out it was about aliens, I started to question whether or not I should read this book. (As you can see, I don't really  have a thing for aliens). However, this book changed my perspective of aliens, making them actually seem hot (Weird, I know right!). Obsidian is a wondeful book with humour and thrills which are sure to please you. The connection between Daemon and Katy feels strong even though they pretty much argue all the time and refuse to admit that they like each other. Although much of this book seems to revolve around their feelings and Daemon's hidden secrets, it doesn't overtake the plot and you have just enough of everything to satisfy your hunger. I truly enjoyed this book and can't wait to get my hands on the next.
