5 stars "I love Daemon--but then, who wouldn't love the hot alien next door? ?Margo Bond Collins, New York Times bestselling author of Under Her Skin
5 stars: "The dialogue, romantic tension & action were great. Loved all the characters. Love the focus on Katy & Dee's relationship, and of course, the guy--Daemon Black. Smokin hot & obnoxious as hell. Sigh." ―Cindi Madsen, USA Today bestselling author of Falling for Her Fiance
5 stars: "I teen-girly giggled my way through this one in record time. Yeah, it was pathetic.

5 stars: "I loved the take on aliens, and the characters are so feisty and fun! It's one of those "new girl moves to town and falls in with a group of non-humans lead by a gorgeous yet douchey guy" kind of stories, but Katy is a really refreshing main character. She's snarky and can stand up for herself and despite her attraction to Daemon, she's not afraid to call him a dickhead when he's being one." ―Kat O'Keefe, Katytastic Booktube

It was so awesome going back and experiencing Obsidian again from Daemon’s point of view. I always knew I loved Daemon, but I really enjoyed his perspective. I’m not going to go into the characters because we all know I love Daemon and Katy at this point. What made this point of view great was that we were finally able to truly understand why Daemon pulled the crap he did. He wasn’t just trying to protect his family, he was trying to protect Kat as well and because we know Daemon has crappy people skills it didn’t always come across the best way. So it was nice to finally understand what was going on inside that head of his. He really struggles with his feelings for Kat and his lingering guilt over Dawson. One of the biggest perks for me was getting to see a lot more Dee and Daemon interaction. Those two have great banter and it was so nice to see their relationship from Daemon’s perspective. Daemon is protective of her but they are also just a normal brother and sister at the end of the day. I’ve always loved Dee, but seeing the story from Daemon’s perspective really let you get to know her better and I loved that. I also adored seeing bookish Katy again. I love how her character progressed over the course of the series, but I missed this Katy. Before everything went crazy in her life, Kat was a bookish blogger and I loved that. She was so fun at this stage and while she always kept her love of books I did love when that was a bit more prominent. Also, the scene where Daemon goes book shopping with Katy is the best. Long story short, this was the perfect way to revisit one of my favorite reads.
Being in Daemon’s head for Onyx was super frustrating because GAHH KATY. I adore Katy, she is one of my all-time favorite heroines, but here she makes you crazy. See when you read Onyx from Katy’s point of view, her reluctance to Daemon makes sense. But when you are in Daemon’s head you KNOW how serious he is and you just want them to get it together. But aside from that I did love seeing Onyx from Daemon’s point of view and I loved watching his character grow. He grows so much from Obsidian to Onyx and getting to see that first hand is so awesome. Also, I simply enjoy being in his snarky and sarcastic head.
Well that twist was absolutely bananas. This book definitely delivered something readers NEVER knew before and that was kinda awesome. I love it when a new perspective gives you new info and that is exactly what happened here. Opal was great from Daemon’s perspective and it was so heartwarming to see how much he came to love Kat. We always knew he was devoted to her but it’s hard to fully grasp until you see it through his eyes and watching him fall for her was ridiculously swoony. This was the perfect way to cure my Daemon fix. And that ending? It was hard from Kat’s point of view, but from Daemon’s it was devastating. It broke me and I had to remind myself that it all turns out okay.
All in all, Oblivion is a really great read and a great addition for fans of the Lux series. JLA once again does not disappoint.
The Lux series is perfect in my eyes, and I would have lived a happy existence, without Daemon’s pov, but now that I’ve had the opportunity to read his thoughts I have a new appreciation, and admiration for him. I’ve always known there was more to him then a pretty face. I adore him when he gets all cocky, but for the love of sweet baby aliens everywhere the man has a heart filled with love and compassion. Katy I love her and maybe I should hate her for snagging the man of my dreams, but she’s perfect for him, and the story.
With the alternate pov it’s not an exact retelling; it’s impossible for each character to remain stuck together for the entire story. What we get is several scenes that we haven’t seen, my favorites are the ones with Dee, and also some other characters that he put in their place. I discovered his love for Katy started slowly, and evolved into this super galactic love. He protected Katy without any reservations, and she did the same. Each side of this story has captivated me for so many different reasons.
Daemon Black has taught me everything I need to know about true love. You certainly don’t choose who you fall in love with, sometimes it chooses you, and takes you to places you never imagined. Some choices aren’t easy, and many are as simple as breathing. Life is full of surprises that turn your world upside down, and it’s all ok, because everyone has different paths to follow.
“I’ve always found that the most beautiful people, beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly una ware of their effect. The ones who throw their beauty around, waste what they have? Their beauty is only passing. It’s just a shell hiding nothing but shadows and emptiness.”
This is clearly my favorite series ever. I’ve read these books more times than I can count. Oblivion is a special book. It should be cherished, and read with a carton of rocky road ice cream. It is a must-read for fans of the series, as well as newbies. Everything you would come to expect from the arrogant alien and then some. Jennifer L. Armentrout is my hero. I’m so happy that she gave us this pov. If I could I’d give her a gigantic hug. She gave us everything we could have hoped for from this series, and so much more.
