Publisher Description

Discover the New York Times bestselling series from Jennifer L. Armentrout.

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.

Read the entire bestselling series!

Loved

Less than 1 star actually

Absolutely disgusting, I wish white authors would stop basing their lore around indigenous culture.
Also it is literally just twilight but with aliens and less personality. The “feminist” writing felt AI generated. Like an alien who came down to earth and learned about feminism from watching how dogs acted in a dog park. 10/10

An Enjoyable 4/5

This story starts out with Katy. She’s a teenager, a book blogger, and has just moved to a small secluded town. There, she comes across her neighbors, Dee and her twin brother Daemon. Dee and Katy become fast friends, but Daemon has some animosity towards Katy that she doesn’t quite understand. She hasn’t done anything to deserve his immediate contempt, but he’s still rude to her every time they talk. However, Katy doesn’t know everything about the next door twins, and the secret she uncovers about them might lead to immense danger, and also a possible romance with her new best friend’s jerk of a brother, Daemon (oooooh ahhhhhh).

So. If you're fond of YA literature, you must've read Twilight. Or at least seen the movies (though how can you compare the books and the movies, COME ON !?) If you have, this book is going to be a trip down memory lane for sure. The amount of Twilight nostalgia I felt while reading this book was unpredictable. Of course I'd heard about the similarities between this book series and Twilight before reading it, but the amount of connections that exist are wild. That being said, there is absolutely nothing wrong with these similarities. In fact, I enjoyed this book a ton because of them. Obsidian was fast paced and gripping, and each chapter ended in a way where I wanted to keep on reading. And there was a sarcastic protagonist, something Twilight lacks with Bella, and a complex (AND HOT) love interest, who maintains Edward’s charm without blowing everything out of proportion. Unlike Twilight’s main couple who are dependent on each other instantly, the possible relationship here is a lot more natural feeling, which I appreciated a lot. Just, if you're going to read this, don't be surprised that the events and characters follow a similar structure as Twilight does, though they are also very different in terms of the world and specific events that transpire - and it's actually a good thing. Jennifer L. Armentrout has created an amazing world with great characters. Yes some may say that the similarities to Twilight make this book lesser, I’d counter that it makes the book even more enjoyable to read. Especially in a period after you’ve just read another book series and need a filler before your next endeavor. It’s perfect for that.

Now, I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll just leave it by saying that I loved this book for the same reason I loved Twilight: it transports you to a different world. And I read for the escapism, so I loved the reading experience immensely. Overall, I'd give it a 4/5. Is it the best thing I've read ever? No. But was it entertaining as hell? Yes. And I loved the direction went in at the end. Maybe I'll invest in the rest of the series, I'm not sure yet. But I say go ahead and buy the first book, you won't be disappointed.

Happy Reading.
