In this special eBook version, experience OBSIDIAN, ONYX, and OPAL as told by 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…
Oblivion turned out to be a far more entertaining read than the original series from Kat’s POV because, DAEMON.
Okay, to be honest, I have not read the second or third book from Kat’s POV, but since I jumped into this sexy alien’s POV right after reading Obsidian, liking A LOT his amusing thoughts and take on the story, I opted to keep reading Onyx (second book) and Opal (third book) through Daemon’s eyes. I have no regrets.
I think it took me 5 days to read Oblivion. THREE books in five days. FIVE days of Daemon Black. I was in literary heaven. I swooned, I laughed, I groaned, and was constantly kept on my toes trying to keep up with Daemon. His thoughts were freaking hilarious and his ego couldn’t have been any bigger if he tried. While Kat’s POV in Obsidian gives you the thrill of falling in love with Daemon Black (and I love falling in love like this), I appreciated knowing exactly how Daemon started liking and falling in love with Kat. It rocked!
And as a first-time reader of Onyx and Opal, I am quite glad I got to read it through Daemon’s thoughts because I would have strangled Kat if I had read her POV. This girl makes so many mistakes that I can’t believe she calls herself a YA book blogger. How could she NOT realize there was something fishy about the whole Blake dude thing (in Onyx)? How could she not trust Daemon? Gah. *takes a deep breath*
Anyway, Jennifer L. Armentrout did a great job with Oblivion. I liked that she not only included favorite scenes in Obsidian (and I bet Onyx and Opal as well) that we were dying to see through Daemon’s POV, but also gave us a full backstage pass to Daemon’s life. Totally loved that!
