“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.”
Where do I start with this book! I loved, loved, loved Obsidian! The plot of aliens had me a little hesitant at first, but Armentrout really captured my attention with how she presented the idea. I appreciated how the characters developed throughout the story, especially Katy. She was a shy girl who usually kept to herself but as the story progressed, she grew more bold and it was amazing to see her stand up for herself. And lets not even get started with the intense romance! Sizzling chemistry that you can actually feel, it was that good! Katy and Daemon had a playful attraction, in which it was a game to see who would break first. I liked how Daemon was closed-off to Katy in order to keep her safe; there was a reason behind his cold character. I also love how Daemon calls Katy “Kitten”, it’s just so cute!
The only thing I didn’t like was how the concept of aliens was a little confusing in some places. I didn’t understand some scenes even when I reread it. But overall, I adored the concept and I thought it was well written. It had me hooked and I was itching to finish as fast as possible. I totally recommend to people who are in store for the romance and the other worldly concept. Can’t wait for the next book in the series!
