Review: Obsidian

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.

I really enjoyed this book! It was interesting throughout the whole book. Sure, there were points that were a little slow, but I wanted to keep reading!

The cover is gorgeous!! I love the models on the front! Their stares are so intense and captivating, that this is what orginally drawn me to the book! The green in the title and background really offset the darkness/tanness of the models! 

The plot was a little slow, and more could've happened, but it was all focused to the story. Every word in the story had a meaning. The writing style really came through like it was being told from a teenagers perspective, which I really enjoyed!

Let's begin with Katy! First she is a book blogger! A YA BOOK BLOGGER!!!! I LOVE HER! :) Whenever her blog was mentioned I did a little happy dance and was like: "I have one of those! We have SOO much in common!" Okay freak out done. :) Katy is strong and she doesn't back down from what she wants. Even when Daemon is standing there, staring at her with those intense big green eyes... Swoon! Plus she stays and fights something that is wayy out of her league!

Then there is Daemon. Daemon, with the perfect build and snarky attitude. The sexy alien next door. Yes, that's right. I said alien! He is very protective of his sister, Dee, and will do anything to protect her. Even if it means taking away her happiness, which thankfully she fights for! Daemon is very rude to Katy, who he calls Kitten, and if I were her I'd get over that rudeness and just fall in love with the guy... :)

I adored this book! It's a definite must read for anyone looking for a different paranormal story! 51 out of 51 tacos! Go buy it and read it ASAP! :)

  1. Glad you liked it! I definitely enjoyed this one, but how Daemon treated Katy really made me mad. Very interesting plot, though, and I'll probably read the next book just to see what happens... plus I'm hoping Daemon can get over himself and we'll have some more sizzling chemistry between him and Katy. ;)

  2. I know! How Daemon treated her was horrible!! I hated that the most!
