Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout

Title: Obsidian
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Publish Date: December 6th 2011

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.

Obsidian by Jennifer L.Armentrout is the first book of the Lux series. Daemon is totally stab worthy just like the summary says. He does everything he can to annoy Kat. Daemon is a jerk to everyone but he is always nice to his sister Dee, which is weird right? Daemon is strange like that, guys would normally be nice to the hot girl next door and mean to their sisters but not Daemon. A lot of times in YA, heroines in a story can be whiney and annoying, but not Kat. She was pretty cool. Definitely a strong female character who knows how to handle an arrogant jerk like Daemon.

This is just one of those books that sticks with you. I caught myself thinking about it for weeks after I finished reading it. I think it’s the way Daemon treats Kat. He is a jerk ALL of the time. I can count on one hand how many times he was nice to Kat. But somehow you (and Kat!) just can't help but love him for it! In most books the bad boy starts to be nice to the girl after a little while. Daemon is a jerk right up until the last page.

I recommend Obsidian to you if you are a fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s other book Half-Blood. Obsidian is nearly impossible to find boring because Kat spends most of her time with Daemon, which means fighting, which equals plenty of laugh out loud moments for you! If you haven't read it yet, go on! Get your copy of Obsidian now!


  1. I agree with you I definitely thought about this book and the character's long after I finished reading it.
    I laughed out loud so many times as I was reading it, and I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out. I have to know what happens with Kat and Daemon.

  2. I really really loved Daemon. Adored him, in fact. He's a creep most times but it's those little moments when you see how much heart he has that drew me in. I am SO psyched, like y'all for ONYX and to see more of Daemon and Katy! Great review, and glad to see Jennifer has a fan in you!
