Peek Inside Obsidian

There’s an alien next door. And with his looming height and eerie green eyes, he’s hot…until he opens his mouth. He’s infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, he lights me up with a big fat bull’s-eye...

Discover the New York Times bestselling Lux series, which RT Book Reviews called “A thrilling ride from start to finish," from the very beginning…

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.

Read the entire series!

"The beginning of Armentrout’s new Lux series is a thrilling ride from start to finish. A cross between Roswell and Dawson’s Creek, this series is guaranteed to hold your attention and have you begging for more." --RT Book Reviews

“Daemon and Katy are combustible…Obsidian is an action packed ride that will leave you breathless and begging for more.” --Jus Accardo, author of Touch

"Loved this book, read it in 2012 but decided to come back and write a review for it. This is actually the book that made me start book blogging!" --Sasha Alsberg, Goodreads

"This book was such a quick, fun read! I haven't read an alien book before, and I found these aliens to be so interesting. Katy was a great main character and I LOVED that she had a book blog." --Zoe, Goodreads

"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)." ---Katerina, Goodreads

“I have a strange idea that I should test this out.”
“Test what?” My eyes dropped to his lips. I felt myself sway.
“I think you would like to know.” He moved closer, his hand sliding up my arm and resting carefully at the nape of my neck.

Alien. I fell in love with a freaking alien. Not one of those greeny three-eyed creatures but still he is extraterrestrial life. As if book boyfriends from this galaxy weren't enough.

Wow. I did not expect to enjoy Obsidian as much as I did. For some reason, I've just been avoiding it, but it was always there in my Twitter and GoodReads feeds. Daemon was frickin' invading my life. Finally, after ...more

I can't believe that I haven't reviewed this, because I remember really liking this book.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Obsidian, and I didn't think I was going to because when I read books about Aliens, I always picture the alien from the film Alien...and that's not a sexy image.

“So the dickhead had a name. Daemon—seemed fitting.”

What do you get when you combine a shy girl from Florida and a sexy, arrogant next door neighbor?

“Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys.”
