Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads

I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.

Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...

Let’s get this out of the way: I’m not avoiding spoilers in this review. This is Obsidian, but from Daemons’ perspective so it’s not like anything is a surprise.

This was a great book and it was exactly what I thought it would be. I really liked seeing what was going on his head during things like the Snowbird and lake scenes. It also made me more accepting of his hot and cold personality with Katy.

But I do miss sweet Daemon. I love his chapters in later books, because he’s so passionate about Katy. It makes sense why he didn’t show up, but I still miss him.

I finally get the end. I’ve read Obsidian a few times, but I’ve always been confused about how the Arum was defeated. I think it’s because Kathy didn’t really know what happened, but Daemon knows more. So, now I get it.

You shouldn’t read this if you don’t like the Lux series and Jennifer L. Armentrout. But if you love the series like me you will probably enjoy this book and more Daemon.

Thanks for reading!
