En el preciso momento en que Katy Swartz se instaló en la casa de al lado, supe que iba a traerme problemas. Muchos problemas.
Y problemas es lo último que necesito, sobre todo teniendo en cuenta que no soy exactamente de por aquí. Mi gente llegó a la Tierra desde Lux, un planeta a millones de años luz. Si algo he aprendido en este tiempo, es que no se puede confi ar en lo

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.

That being said, I AM TOTALLY BUYING THIS BOOK.



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.

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.

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

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. ...more

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.

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

3.5 Stars

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

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.

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

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

You know what I forgot?? There's a few pages at the end of this book where Luc and Paris talk. First time I read this, I didn't think anything of it. Now, the name Evelyn Dasher means so much more that The Darkest Star is out!! Jen, you're so sneaky. You've had this idea in your head for years, didn't you?!?

Anyway, Daemon will always be one of the best book boyfriends and reading the first 3 books from his point of view is a lovely addition to this series, especially as I'm rereading t

WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR THIS OUR WHOLE LIVES. OBSIDIAN FROM DAEMON'S POV. IS THERE ANY REASON TO LIVE ANY MORE??

This brilliant re-write of Obsidian from Daemon's POV was one of the best things that I've read, and one that I intend to re-read, and re-read, and re-read, and you get the idea. It was full of romance, snark, humour and jealousy, anyone who loved Obsidian should have loved it from our most crush-worthy person's POV. Thanks JLA!

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

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.

That was a fun and light read. I've always been interested to see what was Daemon thinking during the first book. Overall I liked it, it as if I was reading Obsidian again. Even though that there weren't any changes and it was pretty much the same, I like the small things that she added. Like when it was reviled that Dee didn't actually steal his keys. That was such a great scene;D
I had only one problem with this book. It might not sound like a such a big deal, but it bugged me a lot. During the
