Review: Obsidian

From Goodreads:

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.

Oh gee! I loved this book so much! I started it yesterday evening, thinking I’d reading a few chapters, get a good feel of the book, then finish it up the next day I had a chance. Well that didn’t exactly happen. From page one I couldn’t put Obsidian down. I stayed up the entire night until it was finished and ran on fumes for the rest of the day. SO worth it!

I have one and only complaint and that is towards the end, maybe it was just me, but it felt like the writing changed. I will definitely be re-reading Obsidian over the summer before Onyx gets here, so I will have to see if I have the same feeling about the writing the second time.

This is not a complaint, just a wish, a wish for a little perspective from Dee. I’m interested to see her opinion during all of this. As readers we know where she stands, but I would like to see inside her head.

If you have not read Obsidian, do so. You won’t regret it.
