Oblivion (Lux, #1.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
First of, I want to apologize for not posting for a long time. I had a rough time at school but it’s okay now because I’m on winter break, yayus! Also, I wish all of you who celebrate it, merry Christmas! I celebrate both Catholic and Orthodox Christmas (7th of January) so this is a pretty fun time for me lol. Sorry for bothering you, here’s the book review:
3.5 / 5 stars
Goodreads description: Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…
I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.
And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.
But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can’t stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.
Falling for Katy—a human—won’t just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen…
Well, This was interesting.
I liked this book series soo freaking much back when I’ve read it and I mostly liked it for one thing: Daemon Black.
Daemon is a hot lad who gives new meaning to things such as aliens and teenage boys. I loved him and I still do and that’s why I had to read this book written in his point of view.
In the same time I started reading this, school happened, mostly the worst part of the school year – week before the end of semester. It was pretty stressful for me so I had almost no time to read. I only finished this book today and I must say it’s a pretty easy read.
I kind of don’t like Katy because she’s kind of fake to me. I’m not sure if I liked her back when I was reading it for the first time, but, right now, she’s not my favorite person in the world.
Daemon Black is.
Holy alien babies, this was hot and breathtaking. It’s a good YA romance book but nothing else than that. It’s surely not my favorite book and I found it a bit juvenile in some parts. It seems I liked this more when I read it the first time than I do now. Still, I give it three and a half stars because it was fun and it wasn’t that bad.
I will not be re-reading the rest of the series because there are better series out there that I still need to get my hands on. Still, a quick and light way to spend your time 😉
