Obsidian (Lux Novel)

Obsidian - Jennifer L. Armentrout For one reason only (well, maybe not only..) did I pick up this book: I heard that the male lead character was H O T. Well, guys. Meet Daemon. (Who is, quite alike the role that Ian Somerhalder plays in TVD. Cocky, sexy.. you name it!) I'll talk more about Daemon later, but..Alright. The cover. The only thing pleasant about that cover is Daemon's face. Or at least, the cover model's face. Well, I'll tell you why I think that. My grandmother walked into the room as I was reading this and asked why there were two people hugging on the cover and she started lecturing me about reading 'these types of books.' And plus, it's not cute. My mom would have freaked if she saw me reading something with a cover like this. And also, let me just take note of the covers for Onyx and Opal:S E X U A L. They do hint at erotica. Which isn't cute. In my opinion, the covers should have more relation with the Luxen and Arum concepts, instead of Katy portrayed as, being all over Daemon. Which she sort of is. But that's beyond the point..Now, Katy. She was one of those cliche.. annoying.. stubborn, i-can't-believe-this-is-forreal and no-i-won't-believe-in-supernormal-things type of character. She was insufferable, mostly, throughout the book, but since she was a book blogger, and she shared my passion for books, I kind of softened toward her, just a little bit. But still. She was just so.. stupid in some parts.. But she proved herself to be a good character.Well, this book actually just STARTED getting interesting when the Luxen and Arum concept got introduced, and that was just a little sad because it was way in the middle of the book. Nonetheless, it seemed like this whole alien mojo thing was sort of difficult to explain! But Jennifer totes nailed it!There was a part at the end of the book with some chapters in Daemon's point of view. It's in the paperback copy, not sure if it's in hardcover. Anyways, I just found the whole thing a bit awkward. I mean, I like discovering things about a character who's mysterious, but I kind of regret reading the Daemon part. Because it made him seem.. different. Not sure if I like that or not. I have to agree, though. He was pretty hot..Overall, this was a pretty good book that I just drowned in. As some people would say, it was 'un-put-down-able!' With the engaging plot, Jennifer Armentrout will pull you in.
