“Welcome to West Virginia, the land of lost models.”
There was something off with this little Virginia town Katy was forced to move in. Strange things happened, people were supposed to light up like Christmas trees and there was gossip about Men in Black lurking in the streets. And things got even weirder when Katy spent time with her extremely beautiful neighbors, Dee and Daemon. Dee wanted desperately to become friends with Katy, while her brother seemed to consider her a stone in his shoe, something unpleasant and annoying. The truth behind this hatred? The Black twins were aliens, hiding from some not so friendly aliens, and Katy found herself involved in a world of secrets, super powers, obsidian knifes and a battle between light and darkness. And a seriously bipolar Daemon.
“I was always able to lose myself in reading. Books were a necessary escape I always gladly jumped into headfirst.”
I LOVE Obsidian so so much. Mystery and paranormal romance combined with sassy characters and humorous dialogues, a healthy dose of tension and agony and sexual frustration and fast paced writing made this book such an enjoyable read! It's my first Jennifer L. Armentrout book and I am pleasantly surprised, I can say for sure she gained a new fan! She managed to make aliens fascinating without following the cliches, and her heroes are easily relatable! Kat was an amazing heroine, stubborn and feisty and sarcastic and caring and funny, it's impossible not to love her!
“Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys.”
Totally swoonworthy. An arrogant, hot, overconfident ,sex-on-a-stick asshole who gave you heart attacks and took your breath away at once.
There were times I wanted to bang his pretty head in a wall and times I wanted him to bang kiss me hard against a wall. He was mostly a rude jerk, but his love towards his sister was touching and the moments he was vulnerable were enough to balance his assholiness.
And the scenes between Daemon and Kat?
Holy Hawt Chemisty, Batman!
If you're looking for a good Young Adult novel from a very talented author, then Obsidian is the book for you. After you finish it, you will wish you were kidnapped by aliens (the hot ones who don't look like Chewbacca anyway).
