Book Review: Obsidian (Lux, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Jan 12, 2013

Jennifer L. Armentrout delivers an addicting, romantically charged novel that unites a human and an alien in a love/hate power struggle. Kidzworld has the book review of Obsidian, book 1 in the Lux series.

The Boy Next Door

When Katy and her mom move from Florida to West Virigina for her senior year, life seems to take a turn for the boring. That is, until she meets her twin next door neighbors, Dee and Daemon. The beautiful Dee wants nothing more than to be friends with Katy, but her brother Daemon - strikingly handsome and frustratingly arrogant - wants to avoid Katy at all cost.

Hot and Cold

With Daemon’s swift rejection and hot and cold attitude toward her, he and Katy quickly develop a bickering, bantering, anti-friendship that only two fiery people who are attracted to each other can have. Daemon will be the first to admit that he doesn’t like Katy. Yet he’s always staring at her, and he did save her life…twice. There’s something different about Daemon. About Dee too, and all of their weird reclusive friends.

Beings of Light

Then by necessity, Katy discovers the truth about them. They’re aliens - beings of light called Luxen - and extremely powerful. But they’re not invincible. There is another race of aliens called Arum who will stop at nothing to steal their light. And now that Katy is glowing like a beacon from the effects of Daemon’s powers, the Arum are on their trail. Katy has become a liability, and most of the Luxen want her as far away from them as possible. But despite his supposed lack of feelings for Katy, Daemon insists on protecting her, even when his life is on the line.

The Bottom Line

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout is book 1 in the Lux series. It has its weak points, particularly at the beginning. But if you push through, you’ll be rewarded with an addicting, electric love/hate relationship that could compete with many of the teen paranormal romance books out there. We definitely give Obsidian two thumbs up!
