Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Holy-Crap!! Really!!! This is what I was missing???
This book ignited into flames, and is still smoldering my kindle!!
Thank You Jennifer, for writing a book that actually had my heart skip a few beats....
Never, in my wildest dreams would I imagine that I would love to read a book about Aliens.
Little green men do nothing for me, but boy, oh boy, Daemon can sure curl my toes...
Katy just moved into a new town with her mom and next door to a hot guy, Daemon and his friendly sister, Dee.
Dee and Katy become fast friends but Daemon and Katy's relationship is like oil and water.
Daemon comes across as a snarky, arrogant ass, but his reasons behind his attitude toward Katy is warranted, as he only wants to protect his sister, and others like him. Secrets about these two slowly unravel as we learn who and what they are, you'll feel totally different about aliens and you just might fall for this story, and a certain alien!
Of course, there is alot more going on with this story than these two, as we learn about Daemon and his enemies, who are constantly after his kind and are ready to destroy them.
This book is full of secrets, and Daemon's coldness toward Kat at first throws you off, but slowly we learn why.
The tension from these two feels like a combustion about to explode.
He saves Katy on many occasions, but, Katy is definitely not a character who just sits around waiting to be saved. She is strong, loyal, brave, and she does her own saving of lives and kicks butt toward the end!
This book was a great YA read. Loved it.
Read it, it will not disappoint!
Twilight fans will adore this.
“Daemon: I checked out your blog.
Katy: Stalking me again, I see. Do I need to get a restraining order?
Daemon: In your dreams, Kitten. Oh wait, I'm already starring in those, aren't I?
Katy: Nightmares, Daemon. Nightmares.”
“Remind me," he paused, drawing in a stuttered gasp, "to never piss you off again. Christ, are you secretly a ninja?”
“And this is why you don’t want me to be friends with Dee, because you were afraid that I’d find out the truth?”
“That, and you’re a human. Humans are weak. They bring us nothing but trouble.”
My eyes narrowed. “We aren’t weak. And you’re on our planet. How about a little respect, buddy.”
Amusement flickered in his emerald eyes. “Point taken.”
“You look like you're twelve. No. Maybe thirteen, but my sister has this doll that kinda reminds me of you. All big-eyed and vacant
Swimming was the last thing I wanted to do. Drowning him? Maybe.”
Aliens—if they exist—are little green men with big eyes and spindly arms or…or giant insects or something like a lumpy
Daemon let out a loud laugh. “ET?”
“Yes! Like ET, asshole. I’m so glad you find this funny.”
“Because this absolutely insane - the craziest thing I'd ever done. Worse than giving a one-star review, scarier than asking for an interview with an author I'd give my firstborn to eat lunch with, more stupid than kissing Daemon.”
