Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…
I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.
And trouble's the last thing I need, since I'm not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there's one thing I know, it’s that humans can't be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. 'Cuz they are.
But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I'm the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.
Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that's one thing I'll never let happen...
I absolutely loved reading this book! I mean, I loved the whole series and I love Jennifer L. Armentrout's writing so yeah, I knew that I would love this book, but I didn't expect how much because her books just keep getting better!
Ive read this series more than once. And even the synopsis gives away that Daemon was Luxen. Bu still I didn't think of what that would mean to the story when Katy didn't know that, to consider his POV. So like the stolen car keys thing, I didn't consider at the very least that he didn't need a car to get around, or that Dee hadn't taken them in the first place. It was things like that that made me need to read more!
Watching Daemon fall in love, hat was really sweet. We knew his reasons why he acted like he did, but that was t seeing his thoughts in real time. So yeah, that was just incredible to read and I just absolutely loved it!
I really enjoyed that last scene in this book, because it meant that we got more of this world! Which is always a good thing! But oh, that Luc had known that they all wouldn't get out of Mount Weather but that it was part of his plan so they could bring him the new serum for Nadine. Oh, that revelation hurt!
Loved reading this book, it was absolutely great, I enjoyed it so much and I can't wait to read more Jennifer L. Armentrout books!
