Loved this book! Loved IT!!! Some of my first thoughts about Obsidian: so far my favorite book of 2012, writing is fast paced, and will keep you turning the pages with lightning speed. To be honest I was so caught up in the story that I didn't pay that much attention to the technical aspects of the writing so we are just going to assume that it was excellent.

Katy our main character is fabulous in so many ways. First off she is a book blogger which as a book blogger, and the mom of two book bloggers was fun for me. She's vulnerable but not in the kind of way that allows her to put up with anyone's crap. Plus she is adorably snarky, witty and just plain hilarious.

Daemon's character is SO confusing, and I can't imagine having to put up with his array of crap on a daily basis. However, Daemon is hot, not just hot but HOT!!! Not that looks are everything and sometimes I find the "but he's so dreamy" thing to be a bit overdone but Jennifer pulled it off perfectly! Plus, he has reasons for the way he acts. The chapter after the book is over is written strictly in Daemon's voice and trust me it will have you falling in love with him if you haven't by the time you finish the book, trust me on this.

The chemistry between Daemon and Katy is the best of any YA book that I have read so far. By this I mean that there are a few scenes that remain fairly innocent but will have you fanning your blushing face. Oh yeah, it's that good.

The only complaint I have is that the fight scene at the end was a little confusing. I had to read it a few times because it seemed a tad bit jumpy. I was unable to figure out exactly what had happened during this scene.

I am really excited for Onyx the next book in the series and I haven't been able to stop telling people about this book. The story line is original (at least to me it is) and the writing flows wonderfully. Jenifer Armentrout just became one of my favorite authors. I will be buying up everything I can find by her.
