The first book in the New York Times best-selling Lux Series...
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!
#1-3: Oblivion (from Daemon's point of view) CAN BE READ FIRST OR AFTER KATY'S POV!
#1: Obsidian (from Katy's point of view)
#2: Onyx (from Katy's point of view)
#3: Opal (from Katy's point of view)
Prequel: Shadows (Dawson's story)
Aliens, hot aliens? DAEMON BLACK???? YES PLEASE!
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! ...more
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. It was a little repetitive at times and the constant bickering between Katy and Daemon, although funny an... ...more
“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.
Well, now I know why this series is so popular :)
It took me... ...more
Actual rating: 3.5 (I think? Geez, I don't know! I just know I liked it a lot, okay?)
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, aft... ...more
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.
“Welcome to West Virginia, the land of lost models.”
There was something off with this little Virginia town Kat... ...more

Sweet. Baby. Jesus.
Picked this book up at 1 AM and read it straight through until 6 AM. A funny, entertaining, and very addicting read. (I'm totally exhausted after staying up late to finish this, but I ain't even mad.)
I loved the take on aliens, and the characters are so feisty and fun! It's one... ...more
Don't mind me doing my happy dance...
This Valentines Day I fell in Love with Jennifer L. Armentrout. I had been hearing through the grapevine about JLA an one particular grape has been rather loud about her work. So with all the faith that Kay @ K-books knows what she is talking about I pi... ...more
"If she was mine, I'd cherish every inch of her. And I wanted to. Now."
“So the dickhead had a name. Daemon—seemed fitting.”
It took me a while to read this book I was a bit busy with personal issues at the time!!!
AND HAD SO MUCH WORK LOAD IN JAN USUALLY TAKES ME 4 Hours to complete e-book!
According to me a Prologue or the 1st Chapter of a book is THE reflection - SO it must capture my attention from page 1 I will co... ...more
Ok, I have to gather my thoughts now, because this book has blown my mind! I absolutely loved it! This is my first book by Jennifer, but it definitely won't be my last. I will now stalk all of her work - beware! There is no wonder she has been getting rave reviews so far.

MY SAD OLD REVIEW.

Maravilloso, espléndido, increíble. Me encantó este libro, ame las historia y los personajes. Tiene un ritmo perfecto, la fluidez de las escenas es maravillosa. Estoy completamente enamorada de Damon y del concepto de Lux. Espero leer muy pronto el siguiente libro.

It's like Twilight but better.
The writing was so good that it saved this story from blending into the countless other YA books about inhuman teenage guys who look like models but are assholes to the main character in order to protect their attractive family's identity. The plot was a bit predicta... ...more
PURE YA GOLD!!!
I’ll be honest here, I didn’t think I was going to love a book about aliens. That’s why I put off starting this book for so long. Its not that I had anything against them, I just wasn’t sure if they were my ‘thing’, you know?? I was wrong. Horribly wrong. They are SO m... ...more
So after reading Obsidian, Jennifer was nice enough to write an extra with Daemon's point of view of a couple of awesome chapters that was at the end in my nook. I gotta say, this was more exciting than reading Obsidian. I have always been in favor of stories being in the guys' POV, I feel we get... ...more
BEST PARANORMAL LOVE STORY EVEEEEEEER!!!
I took a break from my romance//contemporary romance books and gave The Lux Series a chance. I wasn't remotely disappointed.
The story to begin with is very simple: Katy moves in West Virginia with her mom after her father died of cancer, seeking a new begi... ...more
Good Cop, Bad Cop revision - March 2012
1. I only consider spoilers to be major plot reveals - some examples would be : a character death, who a girl chooses in a love triangle, or how a book ends. Random plot points do not count as spoilers to me, so please expect some in the review ahead.
2. Norm... ...more
