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
Forget ET, I want a LUXAN to crash land in my backyard.
What a fantastic beginning to a new series, and with a new paranormal edge. I don't believe I have read a book quiet like it.
The characters were great, Katy was realistic and I loved how she wasn't a simpering miss, crying because the hot guy gave her crap. She totally gave it back to him,then went home to cry into her pillow.( I mean come on who doesn't?)
Daemon, was a total jerk, but as the book went on it was great to see how torn he was in trying to keep away from Katy but still ending up on her doorstep. Love it!
On top of that, the story of the Luxan's, their powers, how they came to be on earth, the fact that there actually seems to be some sort of or real Men in Black, (DOD)and then the evil Arum. I didn't want this book to end.
It is a really great, different Young Adult Novel. Obsidian is a highly entertaining, really well written, easy to read story with likable characters and a good plotline. I will be continuing on with this series.
