[Review] Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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! I don't know what to say...I am speechless! I love the characters. Katy is a book blogger! Come on! That is fantastic! I had an instant! DING! Best friend moment! I can totally imagine us fangirling over books :3. She is basically perfect! She is smart, brave, kind...basically every good characteristics. I mean she definitely deserves the best dude ever...and Daemon Black is totally that! Tanned skinned, green eyed...BRB, let me thrash on my bed! He totally reminds me of Superboy in the cartoon Young Justice. Superboy had anger management problem and is not the most approachable, but you know he tries. This was really like Daemon. Yeah, common denominator...alien boys. Dee, Daemon's twin sister is super adorable. (Now this kind of reminds me of Galen and Rayna from Of Poseidon but the roles are reversed.) I am just relating this book to more epicness! 

The plot is simply amazing. I mean the concept of alien in YA is not touched on a lot. When I read the book it felt like I was sucked into a black hole with twisting mystery and suspense but also the feeling of adrenaline and happiness. One more good thing about this book is that we got to know Daemon's past in detail. A lot of books with paranormal characters, the background story lacks. And I find background stories the most interesting. So great job Jen for writing it in! WOOT! Jen also made the book humorous and intense....very Of Poseidon! LOVE!

Oh how can I forget the love? It was steamy, romantic, heart-warming...(insert more descriptive words). The romance bloom in a pace that is not fast, but not fast at the same time. I don't know how to describe it...darn it brain!

Guess what I am going to rate this book?

    1. WHOA! We must be twins! :D We even started the review with "wow", ahaha! Thank you for stopping by! I love your blog!

  5. The stories Jennifer L. Armentrout writes are definitely addicting. Every time I pick up one of her books I find myself unable to put it down and getting totally engrossed in the story. I just end up having this undeniable need to know what happens next and it was no different with Obsidian. It definitely didn't take too long for me to basically fall in love with this story. My only issue with it was that it took a while for the action to start happening. But once it did, it didn't really stop. And while the ending wasn't a cliffhanger, it definitely left me wanting more.

  6. I am a huge JLA fan and this is my favorite of her series'. Onyx is even better.
