Daring You to Read… Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

For my first DYTR post, I’m daring you to read Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
If you haven’t gotten your hands on this one yet, then you’re way behind.
Just kidding!
But, really. You need to read it.
Obsidian is the first book in the Lux series – a dramatic and somehow addicting series about a race of aliens called the Luxen and their interactions with the humans around them. As well as the troubles they face with the human government.
I honestly didn’t expect to enjoy Obsidian as much as I did – it was one of those books that I’ve seen floating around, but never really grabbed my attention very much. But after reading so many glowing reviews, I had to give it a shot.

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.

Don’t let the synopsis fool you – though it may not sound like a heart-pounding ride of twists and turns, the characters in this one will definitely enchant you. The interactions between Daemon and Katy are addictive. The way they fight and bicker with each other is not only hilarious, but totally authentic too. By the end, you’ll have a total mental picture of these two – and I guarantee, you’ll be rooting for them.

Here’s a great quote that more or less sums up the first 50% of Daemon and Katy’s relationship:

“My palms itched to have a close encounter of the bitch-slap kind with his face.” – Katy

Obsidian is a fantastic opening book to what has become one of my favorite series! With plenty of humor and a cast of characters that will come to feel like family, I dare you to give Obsidian a try!
