Sigh....

If I were to say exactly how I felt about this book...All there were be is a bunch of curse words because that's what the book left me with...Just no words...Just...Shit This book was damn amazing! Ugh...From page 1..It had me..and kept me! Any slow moments didn't last long...

It's rare that I give into over-hyped books and love them...Well...this is one of them...(The others were the Summer I Turned Pretty Trilogy just to name one)

Now, what I am about to say, may get me into a little trouble with some people, but I mean this with the highest of compliments because I loved the series when I read it..And remember, this is my personal opinion...

But some parts, were a tiny bit reminiscent of Twilight, but only a little...Just with the family of "supernatural" family, in this case, Aliens. I cracked up when Katy asked Daemon if they sparkled..That was hilarious!! lolAnother part that reminded me of the other series was the fact that a couple in the family/friends didn't like Kat very much.....But Dee's personality was as bubbly & as sweet as Alice...But of course, those were the only things that really reminded me of Twilight...There were naturally many other differences...Katy was No where near as whiny or stalkerish..and she fought back, hard! She didn't bow down to Daemon's jerk...asshat (hey, that's her word, not mine! lol)ways...

But, oh Daemon, sexy Jerk-y Daemon! Even when he was being a jerk...You just couldn't resist him! The further you got along in the book, the more you began to understand why he was the way he was...And by the end of the book...his swoon-worthyness was so...sigh...I have no real words for it..except that you almost felt as light headed as she did...I think I finally found myself a fictional boyfriend, well, if he was above age 21 that is! lol...(Hey, I'm what many teens consider to be an old woman! lol)...But Daemon, dammit, I love you! Ugh...Without the jerk mode...If I could find one of him closer to my age, I swear my wanting to get married would change!

I have tried to read one of J.L Armentrouts N.A. books, but couldn't get into it..I happened to see Obsidian and Onyx at the library and said I would at least give it a try...Well, let's just say, I am so glad I did! I may go right into Onyx just to see what happened next! Daemon has me hooked! And yes, I love Kat and all her claws too! lol ( )

I'm still trying to wrap my mind around why I love this book so much. If somebody had described it to me in detail before I'd read it, I'd have thought that it sounded exactly like Twilight, but with aliens instead of vampires. Girl with single parent moves to new town, meets hot guy, said hot guy is super rude to her. He's even complete with his sketchy extended family, including an Alice-like sister and a girl whose extreme dislike of our MC is just like that of Rosalie. Hot guy saves girl from vehicle, revealing his powers, and the proverbial beans are spilled. Sound like another Twilight wannabe? No. Wrong. Obsidian is so much better than Twilight. Katy actually has a personality, and stands up for herself when people treat her badly. She understands her own self-worth, and doesn't base it on whether others like her or not. She's strong-willed, which I so admire especially in a YA main character. And Daemon....I'm still left trying to figure him out, even after I've finished the book. ( )

I read the prequel first so I knew most of the characters at least a little already. I loved getting know them more and meeting the new ones. I loved how the ending wasn’t really an ending. I’m looking forward to the next installment. ( )

Book description
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.
Haiku summary
