Publisher's Summary

When 17-year-old Katy Swartz moved to West Virginia right before her senior year, she'd pretty much resigned herself to thick accents, dodgy Internet access, and a whole lot of boring, but then she spotted her hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up...until he opened his mouth.
Daemon Black is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. It's hate at first sight, but when a stranger attacks her and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens. The hot guy next door? Well, he's an alien.
Turns out that Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities and Katy is caught in the crosshairs. Daemon's touch has lit her up like the Vegas Strip and the only way she's getting out of this alive is by sticking close to him until her alien mojo fades. That is, if she doesn't kill him first.


What the Critics Say

"The beginning of Armentrout's new Lux series is a thrilling ride from start to finish. A cross between Roswell and Dawson's Creek, this series is guaranteed to hold your attention and have you begging for more." (Romantic Times)

Great Story! Didn't like narrator.

What made the experience of listening to Obsidian the most enjoyable?

The story. I loved the story that Jennifer L Armentrout wrote.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She had a very nasally voice. In this story, it is difficult to enjoy, especially when she performs a male voice. She also pronounces the male lead character's name wrong. The author has said the name is pronounced Day-mon not Demon. It should really be rectified.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I love Katy and Daemon's first kiss.

Any additional comments?

Narrators should check name pronunciation before they start the story because now you have six books with an incredibly annoying mispronunciation where if they would have emailed the author, it could have been corrected immediately.

Holy Alien Hotness

This book has been described as "Twilight with aliens", which didn't sound appealing to me at all. However, based on all the 5 star reviews and hype for this book I went ahead and gave it a try. WOW did this book surprise me. It's witty, fast-paced, full of action and mystery and some very swoon-worthy scenes. I am a huge fan of YA romance books and this one is quickly rising to the top of my favorites list. This series is so addictive and fun that I've already downloaded books 2, 3 and 4. I'm going to be in listener heaven now.

5 stars!!
