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. Plu

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)

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.

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.

(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.

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

It was fun reading Daemon's POV when he first met Katy. His POV of everything that happened in Obsidian felt "new" to me and not like a simple "copy paste job" as my friend Ami said. Or it might be because I read that one a looong time ago so it felt that way. But I really enjoyed it a lot! Oh and Daemon seems to be a bigger douche than I initially thought. :))

I have to say though that his POVs of Onyx and Opal aren't necessarily a must read. I felt like they were pretty much the same a

I know that some people hate when authors write their popular book with a different POV... but not me. I FUCKING LOVE MALES POV and guys we are talking about DAEMON FUCKING BLACK, THIS IS A MUST READ!!!! HE IS THE BESTTTTTTT.

I'm ridiculously in love with Daemon so please if you do not like the idea of this book that is ok DO NOT READ IT but stop talking shit.

That being said..GOOD BYE WORLD. I'M READING.

Ok, before I start this review, I just want to say that this might be a horrible review. I know my timing is really bad because I have two exams tomorrow. Although I studied since the beginning of the semester, I am scared. I feel really pressured and have been studying for hours. So I decided to take a break and that break includes writing a review. :) I'm sorry I just couldn't help myself. I finished this book two days ago but everything is so crazy and I really wanted to write a review.

Oblivion was gripping, emotional and I loved every minute of it! So when I started reading that very first page I found myself crying. I was so happy to be back in a world with characters that I absolutely loved with my whole heart. Four years later and the Lux Series is still my favorite series and Daemon Black still holds the number one spot as my favorite book boyfriend ever. So the fact that we got to hear the first three Lux books in Daemon Black's voice?! It was priceless. Oblivion was co ...more

I finished the Lux series last year and I just couldn't get over the series and how its my favorite series... EVER . I've been trying to find a series or just even a book to replace it but I can't! So, you can imagine my freak out session I had when I found out she released Oblivion and.... (give it a minute)... IT WAS IN DAMEON'S POV!!

V. A Court of Wings and Ruin is NEW ADULT/EROTICA but Goodreads editors won't tell you to include it in the choice awards
I laughed a lot, I enjoyed it a lot.

Is this the best lux book?No it's not, but it's still Daemon, it's still one of my favorite series and although I'll be the first to admit that my expectations were high it didn't dissapoint me. I wanted a little bit more of something that I can't pinpoint. I don't know perhaps more romance. I'll never get enough of Daemon and Kitten.

Did you read the Lux series and fall madly, deeply,and irrevocably in love with Daemon Black?

“Want to throw another adverb in there?”

Well, yes. I’ll tell you something else: if your answer to my question is YES, then you absolutely and immediately need to read Oblivion.

If I remember correctly, it was during Christmas last year that I read – or more like devoured – the Lux series. This was during my pre-bibliotheque reader’s life, so I never put together a review for it. To be honest, I don’t t

There's nothing much to this but I loved every moment that Daemon became irresistible and lovable. You won't be disappointed.

This is an awesome addition to the series! If you loved the Lux series, or even just liked it, definitely pick up this book. Even though it was the same book, it never got old or repetitive. Oblivion gives an interesting and new take on events, and adds extra Daemon/Katy scenes you don't see in the original. It makes me love Daemon even more, and lets you get to know the Thompson's and Matthew on a deeper level. Any Lux fan definitely needs to pick this up!

Just FYI, I bought this book both print

Like honestly if anyone is surprised I gave this book 5 stars when it's basically Obsidian but this time in my favorite's character POV, then you must not be aware of my insane obsession with the Lux series.

This book brought back home all of the feelings I felt when I first read Obsidian and nothing can compare to that; the exhilaration, the angst, the pain, the love, THE FEELINGS. Everything was how I hoped it would be and even more, I mean... c'mon! It's DAEMON BLACK, the holy trinity of bad

4.5* It was so great to get to visit the characters again in Oblivion! I did take a little off the rating, though, because I felt like there wasn't really a flow to the book.

Note: I read in paperback so I didn't read the other two books... maybe later if I buy in e-book format

LOVED IT! I cherished those 1000pages. I don't think I've ever missed a fictional character so much such as Jen's, Daemon. Enjoyed being in his head, rereading their (love)story.

Those characters, this series will always be one of my top favorite!!

This was a lot of fun to read, especially since it's not a straight retelling of Obsidian. We get all our favorite scenes and then some. The best part was seeing first hand Daemon's growth as a character.

Fans of the Lux series will not be disappointed!

WOW!!!! I can’t fangirl enough over Jennifer Armentrout. She is my favorite PNR writer. Her world building is phenomenal. Oblivion is a POV novel. I normally have a hard time with these novels. But of course I read it because there is no book boy that I love more than Daemon Black *sigh*. This book was written perfectly. Yes, we knew what was going to happen eventually, but Daemon’s POV was so fresh and different from Kat’s that I felt like I was reading a whole new series at times. It was an am ...more
