Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…

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 hu

But no, we see true insight to not only what he is thinking and feeling but things he does that really don't add or mean anything except that it is almost as though she could have started the series out this way from the beginning, which I feel is how a rewrite should be every time anyway.(less)

A book lover always wants to read one of their favorite books for the first time again....Oblivion is a way to do that with Obsidian <3

Daemon Black is back!!!! and I'm over here like...

You're probably thinking "wow, Angela isn't this a little over kill??"... NO. NO ITS NOT!
I've been waiting for this! I asked for this the second I finished Opposition. I love Aliens. I love hot guys. And I more than love when the two are combined. I usually hate when authors re-release books from another POV. Feel like it's a waste of time. This was not a problem with Oblivion. I was more than happy using my evening reliving events with one o

Side note, is anyone else getting a lumberjack vibe off of this cover?! Or is it just me??

Before Reading:
I have to admit that I hate when authors write their most popular book with a different POV and make money out of that. I just think they are getting advantage of people who would do anything to read more about their favourite characters.


I'm ridiculously in love with Daemon Black AND I HAVE TO READ anything that involves him.

Also Daemon and Kat warm my cold, dead heart.


After Reading:

Obsidian: 2.5
Onyx: 3
Opal: 3.5

The first book of the lux series nearly destroyed my life with how horrifically awesome it was, but the first book in Daemon's pov? I literally feel like my life was wrecked, the minute I finished the book. This is by far my favorite book in this series. There was several moments where I felt the need to drop kick Daemon in a volcano and throw lighter fluid right after him, for being such a connard to Katy, but he got a brain in the end :) So, all in all, awesome read and highly recommended!

Daemon’s POV and in a way he will make you fall in love with him all over again.

You will laugh with his first impression of Kate:

I sized her up as I drifted silently through the trees. She appeared of average height. Actually, everything about her seemed average....
..... My head cocked to the side at the sound of her voice, which was also…average.

You will roll your eyes with his description about himself:

My green eyes were a family trait and my hair tended to curl a bit on the ends whether I

This happened....

What can I say about this? It is as good I as I had hoped it would be. It's totally Daemon Black. I loved it.

Here's the thing with retelling for me, there needs to be something more. Simply retelling a story from a different characters POV doesn't hold my interest. I know what's going to happen. I need more. This one was more.

Yes there are scenes that Katy wasn't part of that we see in this book. Thankfully, not every scene we had before is redone with Daemon's POV. Some are sum
I usually hate it when authors write their already published books in a different POV but IT'S DAEMON BLACK WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HERE SO OF COURSE I'M FREAKIN EXCITED :D

But December 2015? :( :(

Oblivion is a companion novel (#1.5) in Jennifer L. Armentrout's young-adult paranormal series titled Lux. It's been a long while since I read the first book Obsidian so I knew I would need to re-read it before continuing the series. But look what came just in time...

Think Obsidian from Daemon's point of view. There were some new scenes but the majority of the content is the story you know but flipped perspectives. For me having read Obsidian so long ago, this was perfect. My memory got caught u

JLA... I love you. And the series... This changes nothing. I just couldn't really love this book, it's not you, it's me. I hate different POV books, it just seems to me it was purely a retold book in Daemons perspective. Nothing new was brought to the story for me... And if anything, I began to doubt my love for the original books. Now, I couldn't have that! So, with my long awaited release of Oblivion, I close the book. In my eyes, the Lux series will forever live on in the eyes of Katy.

Oblivion - the Kindle version - is essentially the first three books of the Lux series told from the perspective of our favorite alien, Daemon Black... meaning, for me, resistance is futile. For those that don't already know, Daemon and Katy are, like, top 10 OTP for me. That's really solidified in the last three books of the series, but it was fun reading their beginning all over again. Especially the way Daemon tells it. That sneaky, cocky bastard. He will always be one of my favorite book boy ...more

This series owned me the first time I read it and there is nothing better than having Daemon Black's POV. Being in his head and heart..priceless! His arrogance...his fears...his emotions...everything upped the ante and made the story so much more! FABULOUS ☆☆☆☆☆

Daemon Black is back!

“Huh. Perhaps I was a bit too much of a dick the first two times I talked to her. Good thing she didn’t know I briefly considered burning her house down.”

I think the entire Lux fandom may just explode from the excitement of having not just 1, but 3 books told from Daemon’s POV. Oblivion is truly magnificent, it’s allows you to relive all of your favorite moments from the series but also brings new information to the table and shed new light on Daemon’s infamous split perso

3.5 STARS for the e-book version
(Obsidian, Onyx and Opal in Daemon’s POV)

No panic. 3.5 stars is a good rating. It means that overall I did enjoy this book. However, writing-wise, Oblivion is no masterpiece. I could live without all those repetitive phrases that author used. If I read about Daemon talking about „how long Kat’s legs look for someone so short” ever again, I will probably break something. And if I read once more about Daemon looking at “certain assets of her”, I will burn something.
5 freaking stars!!!<3

That girl was trouble wrapped up in a tiny package
complete with a freaking bow.And worse yet,
she was just the kind of trouble I liked!

I can't describe how I felt when I discover this words... just feelings....

I never wanted someone as much as I wanted Kat

I had a HUGE ASS grinning the whole time I was reading Daemon's thoughts about Katy...
When I read the "Lux" series I wanted sooo badly to know what Daemon was thinking or feeling from the first time he saw

It really is delightful being in Daemon's head and seeing his side of the story.

We've gotten little teases of his POV while the series was being published and this definitely didn't disappoint. I absolutely loved seeing how Daemon reacted to meeting Katy for the first time, how he connected with Dee, and pretty much every other character in the story.

My favorite was seeing how his feelings for Katy changed as they interacted more, especially when he was antagonizing her for a reaction. Yes, he

(Note: I am going to read the paperback copy, then, at some point, read the ebook version; it is Daemon, and experiencing Obsidian, Onyx, and Opal is a must.)

I finished the paperback version (with only Obsidian from Daemon's point view), and as soon as I can read the digital copy (with Onyx and Opal from his point of view included), then I won't hesitate to start it.

OBSIDIAN from Daemon's point of view

I don't know why I love Daemon so much -- he is a jerk a lot of the time -- but I guess it's

This book is the first three books from the Lux series from Daemon's POV, well at least the e-book is. If you got the actual book it's just Obsidian instead. We get to see his thoughts and the reasoning behind all his actions. My favorite of the three novels is the retelling of Obsidian, I mean they are all great but there is just something about the first one that is my favorite. That is because well the action is mainly all from Katy's POV and it shows, to me this drags a little at some points ...more

Prior to picking this book up, I didn't realize that it was "Obsidian" (Book 1 in the series) from Daemon's perspective. As "Obsidian" was probably my favourite novel in the series, it was not a disappointment.

I really enjoyed this read but I can understand if others think it was unnecessary. Typically, I don't read many books where it's a repeated story told from a different character perspective. I know they are out there (examples being: the Fifty Shades of Grey series told from Christian's
"Lesen ist aber nicht wirklich etwas zu tun haben, Kätzchen."
Entrüstet öffnete sie ihren hübschen Mund. "Das hast du jetzt nicht wirklich gesagt."

Ich bin keine der Leserinnen, die total in Daemon verschossen ist. Ich mag ihn nicht. Schwer zu erraten, dass dieses Buch das nicht geändert hat. Auch wenn ich ihn vielleicht ein wenig besser verstehe. Allerdings ist dieses Buch tatsächlich nur eine Erzählung des ersten Bandes aus Daemons Perspektive. Viel Neues gibt es nicht. Gut geschrieben ist es
