obsidian book review

I can’t believe this day happend - but yesterday I’ve finally finished reading the Lux-Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

With one eye smiling and one crying eye I can look back at 5 wonderful books, that kept my attention for nearly two years. I remember starting the series at the end of 2014 and you could say that it was love at first sight. I loved Obisidian from the very first second, I fell in love with the characters and mostly with Daemons hilarious sarcasm.

Obsidian was the first book that I have ever read from Jennifer L. Armentrout and I loved her writing so much, that I knew: she would be my new queen. Her books are never a failure. Actually she has a talent for ripping my heart out. But good for her that she also knows how to put it back where it belongs and wrap it in cotton.

I’m kind of happy that I have ended the series, because sometimes the story became so crazy that I was like “wtf J., what are you doing (with your characters)?!”, but she always got my attention back and now I have to admit: I already miss Daemons and Kats playful fights (they are my new otp).

If you want to read something different from the usual fantasy books (you know, like vampires and werwolves) and that’s funny and exciting at the same time, I promise you: that’s the one you’re looking for! It’s a must read! 

(You can only love it)

Title: Obsidian
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Pages: 335
Rating:  ★★★★★ (5/5)

Synopsis:

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.

Thoughts:

I’m lying in the afterglow (see what I did there haha) that is Obsidian. I’m just rolling around in left over feels at this point. To be honest I’m slightly annoyed at myself because it’s taken me almost three years to read this book and I really wish I had read it sooner. But sweet mother of pearl I loved this book so much. This series looks like it has the potential to ruin my life in the best possible way.

My thoughts are still scattered all over the place and it’s difficult to sit here and type an educated and detailed review when all I want to do is this: 

Obsidian was pure enjoyment. I was loving it so much that I debated if I should cancel my plans with a friend just to stay in and read. I was utterly addicted to this book. I really adored the writing and I thought the characters were well rounded, different (in terms that they didn’t read the same), and very funny. Katy is sassy, Daemon is a complete jerk, and together I can’t help but love them even though all they are is fire. Their relationship and romance is extremely slow placed and goes from one extreme to another. One minute they absolutely hate each other, a minute after that they are bonding, and then after that they are back at each other’s others throat. Obviously in real life their relationship would be extremely toxic but this isn’t real life, we are talking about aliens here, so I found their banter to be enjoyable. The chemistry between them is just so sexy; it’s hard to not want them together. The plot and pacing were equally fantastic and as you can tell, I thought this book was just perfect. At least for me it was. I can’t wait to dive into the other books! 

Edit: I forgot to add that Katy is one of us! She runs a book blog and gets all giddy when books arrive at her front door! It made me love her character even more!
