I am so in love with these two + Dee + a few other characters. This story is rife with love + betrayal + so many difficult stories. Also, I love that she's a blogger! I totally connect with her character. <3 She's so real and complex, but all the characters are multi-dimensional through the story. How else would you be drawn so far into this world of aliens and alternate universes? I also believe that if the bad guys aren't complex, they're not realistic at all. So when I find myself truly wishing a character ill, I feel it's an amazing story.
On of my favorite scenes in this first book is when Katy goes to the neighbor's house since the kids living there are around her age. She's simply going to ask directions, but the ulterior motive is to try to become friends with one or both teens. And man, there is some serious chemistry from the first interaction! I'm rooting for them from the beginning.
Armentrout has seriously made me an alien fan with this series, which is really saying something because any time I've experienced alien fantasy, I'm bored. This...well, I think aliens are pretty fantastic now! You're gonna want to at least try the sample, but you'll be sucked in within the first chapter if you're anything like me!
That being said this book is such a stereotype of the Young Adult genre - there is the unearthly beautiful boy, who is a jerk; there is the beautiful but doesn't realize it girl (luckily here she is also a book-blogger - scoring bonus points in my book); and there is the paranormal elements and the romantic story. BUT with all those stereotypes it was still a great read. I am a sucker for the jerk/hot guy in YA books and their love/hate thing is intoxicating.
The story follows a girl in a new town with mysterious neighbors, they have a secret and she is getting weird vibes from the whole town. She is introduced and then weirder things start to happen. The rest of the book is about Daemon pushing away while his sister, Dee, wants to be her best friend.
I really enjoyed this book and flew through it in a few sittings, I already have the 2nd book on my shelf so that one will be picked up very soon... but I kind of want to spread them out a bit.
Obsidian is definitely one of those books that I enjoyed far more the second time around than I did when I first read it. Not that I DIDN'T enjoy it the first time... I just connected with it more, and rated it higher, this time. Obsidian was my first alien book way back when I read it, and now that I think about it, I haven't read another alien book since! With her trademark humor, kickass heroine and super sexy men, Jennifer set the bar high and no other alien book has caught my interest.
I freaking love the dynamic between Katy and Daemon. Their banter was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them grow from neighbors who had no desire to be around each other to friends... and finally more. Sure it was a bumpy road with lots of secrets and twists and turns, but I was hopelessly hooked, even the second time around. I remembered the big parts of the story, but I was a little fuzzy on the small details so it was like discovering the story for the first time. With a strong female lead, swoony book boyfriend, kissy scenes, tension, secrets, mystery and action, Obsidian had a little something for everyone.
One of the other things I thoroughly enjoyed about the book this time around was Katy's life as a blogger and her obsession with books. The references were a bit lost on me the first time I read this book, in my pre-blogging days. I didn't even follow blogs back then, even though I was an avid reader. But this time, I had a bit of a chuckle or a head nod every time she mentioned it.
I did read this in audiobook format and I have to mention how much I enjoyed Justine Eyre's narration. I think she did Katy's voice and inner dialogue perfectly. When I read Katy the first time, I read a lot of her inner dialogue as sarcastic. Justine sounded *exactly* like I imagined Katy. Plus I loved the way she did Daemon's voice... especially when he was saying "Kitten." Yes, please! Pacing and inflection is important in an audiobook and I think Justine absolutely nailed it.
Books like Obsidian make my daily commute – and sometimes household chores – so, so much more enjoyable. I can't wait to finish the first four books and then see what happens in Opposition!
