I am now president of the Jennifer L. Armentrout fan club! This book was SO good!

After reading and loving her first novel, Half-Blood, I was ecstatic to find out that she was starting a new series — about aliens and book bloggers too! Obsidian has everything an awesome book should have: a great cast, a twisting plot, and a supernatural element that was honestly unlike anything I've ever read before.

It's probably the biggest understatement ever when I say I adored Katy. She was hilarious, smart, strong, and a book blogger (which I'm sure a lot of us can relate to!). But she was also such a real character that it made it impossible not to connect with her.

And Daemon — well, he's definitely my newest book boy crush! He was infuriating and arrogant and snarky and holy-hot, but he also had those sweet moments that would steal your breath away. I loved his bubbly and sweet sister Dee, and everything about the aliens (or Luxen, as they call them) was so fascinating that I kept wanting more!

Hilarious, witty, and one-hundred percent entertaining, Obsidian was an fast-paced book that left me breathless and craving for more! If you haven't added this one to your To Be Read pile yet, I wholeheartedly recommend that you do because this is one original novel you don't want to miss!

BUY or BORROW?: Definitely a book you want to have on your shelf! Buy it for sure! :)
