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 CAN NOT stress how much I loved this book. Yeah it's not all that new but I just joined the lovely community of book lovers online and I heard something amazing about Obsidian from every other person I follow or am friends with so I figured I'd check it out. I am so glad I did, this book is fantastic. First off, it has the perfect amount of action, well rounded characters that are very likable, and the writing is great.
The fact that Katy is a blogger made me love her, I mean Jennifer even added little details like Katy doing 'Waiting on Wednesday' and 'In My Mailbox' memes. Is that not the cutest thing ever? I really like how she's so feisty when it comes to Daemon and how she tries to hate him but really can't. Relationships like that are hard not to love. Then there is our lovely Dee, the poor girl has an outrageously over protective brother and just wants to have one 'normal' friend. I really felt bad for her when she was afraid Katy was going to stop being her best friend. Dee reminds me of a cute, bouncy, curly haired girl. She's just got that kind of happy attitude, when she isn't yelling at Daemon ofcourse. Speaking of the jerk, I think Daemon has become one of my favorite characters. He's a total jerk face but it's hard not to love him, I hate how he puts on this huge douche facade when we all know he isn't really that way. He was such an interesting character, he's really back and forth with his emotions. I feel for Katy because if Daemon did that to me I'd go insane, literally.
I bought this book yesterday and obviously devoured every bit of it. I can't wait to read Onyx, I'm kind of glad I read it after the second came out because it would really suck having to wait for more of Daemon, Katy, and Dee.
