Obsidian (Lux, #1)

Obsidian (Lux, #1) - Jennifer L. Armentrout Reading this series for the first time with Sara and Jo!5 EPIC STARS! I have found another series to add to my favorites!*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*After her father passed away from cancer, Katy and her mother decide to relocate from Florida to West Virginia in hopes of finding a fresh start in life. Katy then meets her twin neighbors, Dee and Daemon Black. While Dee has a bubbly personality and is super friendly to Katy; Daemon is constantly brooding, rude, and tries his best to keep Katy away from him and his family. Katy's thoughts about Daemon: Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys."Since Katy and Dee become very good friends, Daemon is forced to accept Katy into his life and, to his dismay, a friendship of sorts is formed. See, Daemon and his family have a secret; they are aliens from the planet Lux and they are trying to hide their identity from Katy and the rest of the human population. Being close to humans like Katy not only puts the Luxen in danger, but also any human who knows about their existence. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*Katy is becoming one of my new favorite heroines. She is brave, strong willed, loyal, stands up for herself, and is a total book addict (just like me) =D Daemon is one of those bad boy heroes that you just can't help but love."He was the kind of boy that broke hearts and left a long line of them shattered behind him. He was trouble. Maybe the fun kind of trouble, but he was also a jerk. And I didn't do jerks. Not that I did anyone." One of the characteristics that I loved about Daemon the most is his loyalty to his family. He would do anything within his power to protect his sister Dee, even if that meant being an ass to a girl he is attracted to and is developing feelings for. One of my favorite elements of this story was Katy and Daemon's banter back and forth. It was hilarious! "In your dreams, Kitten." He smirked. "Oh wait, I'm already starring in those, aren't I?"I rolled my eyes. "Nightmares, Daemon. Nightmares."Overall, I am in LOVE with this series so far! I generally don't read YA books and I tend to avoid books/movies with alien themes, so I definitely did not go into this series expecting to love it. If you are like me in that respect, I encourage you to give the Lux series a try. I think you will be pleasantly surprised!Memorable Quotes:*"I think my sister finds you very special. I'm starting to wonder if she's onto something."*"I've always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unsure 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.
