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. ( )

Ok, so usually I won't like these sort of books - the whole, guy has a secret identity, turns out to be non-human and falls for a human girl against his better judgement book. However, I was drawn to this because it doesn't have a love triangle, it didn't seem to have insta-love and the heroine didn't seem to neeeeeeeed the hero. For those alone, I enjoyed it. ( )

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
