OBSIDIAN by Jennifer L Armentrout

Obsidian (Lux, #1)Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


So so so good. I don't usually turn into a crazed fan girl during reviews but I don't think I can help myself. Daemon *sigh* is very swoon worthy and Katy *fist pumps* just rocks. So for me this book was all about the fantastic writing and realistic character development. Just flawless. Also the dialog between Daemon and Katy sizzled. There was not a single wasted word and the plot moved at a breakneck speed.

Katy was a wonderful heroine. Well rounded and totally believable. Her reactions to the extreme situations she finds herself in are funny and spot on. She does not whine, ring her hands or want to be saved. She is not the doormat or damsel in distress that seems to be so popular in YA right now.

Daemon is a smart, sexy hero. He is also a jack ass to the heroine in an attempt to protect his family secrets. While this would normally annoy me, the fact that Katy the heroine calls him on it works for me. This leads to some of the funniest and at times sexiest dialog I have read in ages and makes the book fun.

Sexy alien hero + book nerd heroine = a snarky, smart, fun, thrilling read that I devoured and had me running for book 2.

A well deserved 5 out of 5 stars.
