Obsidian: A Lux Novel, Book 1

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Year: 2011
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Pages: 268

Katy and her mother move to West Virginia for a fresh start after her father's death. Shortly after moving in Katy meets the super gorgeous boy next door, Daemon. Unfortunately, he's also a jerk who dislikes Katy for no apparent reason. Daemon's twin sister, Dee, is his complete opposite. She welcomes Katy and immediately accepts her as a friend. But Katy soon notices that something isn't quite right about Daemon and Dee. Turns out they're aliens.

So I've heard a ton about these books on all the blogs and was really psyched when I saw a copy at my library last week. I wasted no time in getting down to reading it. And I'm a little divided on it. Part of it might be due to all the hype and high praises I've read on it everywhere so there's a good chance I expected way too much from the book. Don't misunderstand me, I enjoyed the book a lot. As a matter of fact, I read the entire thing in one sitting and couldn't bring myself to put it down. It just wasn't as great as I had thought it would be. 

I really liked Katy. She's probably one of my favorite heroines. Not because she's kickass but because she's a lot like me. She seems like one of the most normal heroines I've come across. And I can see how Daemon's going to come around to being a really great hero even though he spent most of this book being a jerk. And all the hotness in the world can't make up for a bad or mean attitude. But I think Daemon was projecting that jerky attitude and his real self is going to be a whole lot more likable. 

Now as the second book isn't available at my library and I am totally strapped for cash, it might be a while before I get to read the second book and find out!


  1. I just bought this one I haven't read it yet though I ant wait to see what it's like!
