I’ve been grinning as several of you who’ve already entered the Reader’s Choice giveaway this week said you wanted Jennifer Armentrout’s Obisidian because…well, here it is again! So if you want this one, you have two chances to win it this week!
THE OFFICIAL BLURB: 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
MY THOUGHTS: Okay, I almost didn’t run that official blurb because one of the cool things about this book for me was that I read it when it was in manuscript form, and had no clue what it was about. So the whole alien thing kind of blew the top of my head off (in a good way). But since the publisher chose to spring that surprise before the horse left the gate (how many metaphors can I mix in one sentence….a lot!), I figure you know it already.
What I most loved about this fast-paced, sexy YA from Jennifer Armentrout is the voice of Katy, who is a book blogger dragged to a new town by her widowed mom. She’s sharp and a little snarky and laugh-out-loud funny…and the twins next door, sexy-arrogant-jerk Daemon and his sister, drive her nuts. Armentrout also manages to both tie up the storyline but leave enough hanging so that I, for one, can’t wait for the second in the Lux series to come out.
