I did not expect to enjoy Obsidian, so it took me by surprise that I was able to read it in one day. Although there was not anything new story wise (new girl, hot alien neighbor, the big bad, the girl saves the day), it is written in a very contemporary style and language, it is witty, humorous and sarcastic all in one package, plus, the plot develops in a perfect pace, and it does not allow to put the book down. I really liked Kat, mostly because her love of books and her geekism, as well as her down-to-earth attitude and her ability to give a witty comeback in any situation. She did not seem seventeen, more like in her twenties. Hot and cold Daemon was most of all entertaining. Cannot stop enjoying his sarcasm and irony, and I loved that he was not in love with the girl next door the moment he laid eyes on her. ( )

So you read Katy's POV and it's

Then you just read two chapters in Daemon POV

Review to come. All I could think of throughout the book was of Twilight. Better written and with Aliens, but all the same. So that kind of detracted from the book for me. ( )

This book is SO BAD. And seriously? Daemon? That HAS to be the LAMEST name I have EVER HEARD. And also, I object to that cover. I don't think I would ever in a million years be caught doing THAT on a boy, thank you very much. And when he stays underwater for 2 MINUTES, and when he can move VERY FAST--ALMOST SUPERNATURALLY FAST, and when FRIGGIN' STORM CLOUDS CORRESPOND with his moods, and when ... what's her name ... Bella Katy writes a friggin' BOOK BLOG and loves friggin' PARANORMAL FICTION, you would've thought she'd catch on a bit earlier. I mean, when that guy says "You have their trace" and she's all like "who's trace?" I'm like "YOU'VE ONLY BEEN SOCIALIZING WITH SOME PEOPLE AND THEY'VE BEEN ACTING PRETTY WEIRD LATELY, DON'T YOU THINK?! SO WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK HE'S TALKING ABOUT?!" *end rant*

P.S. I only own a copy 'cause it's free. Don't judge. ( )

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
