“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.”
Why is it that guys who act like jerks make me want them so much? Huh? Why?
Let me talk about Daemon. I have never wanted to kiss a guy so much that I want to slap. Does that even makes sense? Daemon is such a jerk from the minute he is introduce. Fiercely blunt holding nothing back, Daemon says and does anything to push everyone away. He loves deeply but it’s so hard to even gets past his guard. As the plot goes deeper into what Daemon really is, I was hooked. Nothing could tear my eyes away from the pages of Obsidian.
The love interest is just sooo darn good. Two completely different people both in personalities as well as well you’ll find out once you read it, but yes I totally loved this pair. She is just the right girl for Daemon to soften him up. She isn’t afraid to challenge him in what Daemon says or does. They both complete each other more than they know.
There are several plot twists that keep me intrigued and into the book. I’m pleasantly surprised of how well this book kept me glued. I love every moment of it and can not wait to dive back into the next book.
Obsidian is an rock solid book that blew my mind. An excellent, engaging story, Obsidian is never boring but grossly entertaining story that will stick in your mind even after reading it.
I give it 5 BITES!
