Obsidian is about a girl named Katy, who moves to a small town in West Virginia right before her senior year. Katy is less than enthusiastic about leaving behind her home in Florida, but tries to make the best of it. Looking for the nearest grocery store, she meets her neighbor, Daemon Black, who is smoking hot, until he opens his mouth. Daemon is arrogent and rude, and drives Katy insane. But she soon discovers, Daemon and his sister, Dee, aren’t your average neighbors…
I would have to give Obsidian a 5 out of 5 stars rating, based on the hilarious and relatable characters, action, romance, and drama. I absolutely love Katy’s character and find her completely relatable, not only because she is a book blogger (hehe), but because she doesn’t blindly accept everything she’s told. When something doesn’t seem right, she questions it, and doesn’t wait around for someone to tell her what’s okay. Daemon and Katy’s Banter throughout the book was hilarious and kept the book going without getting boring. There wasn’t a lot of action until the end, there is some parts scattered throughout the book, but most of it occurs in the final scene. Speaking of which, the end battle, was fast-paced and I couldn’t put it down. Poo really hit the fan at the end… The romance between Katy and Daemon, was done prefectly because the whole idea behind their relationship was how they both seem to hate each other, or at least want to, but the reader knows better, which is really fin to read because you know more than the characters and can put two and two together, connecting the events and finding the true meaning behind their words.
I would recommend this book to fans of Paranormal Romance. If you are into more fast-paced books, this series probably isn’t for you, because though the plot is perfectly paced, in takes a while to get into the real trouble they are facing, so it won’t catch your attention as quickly. It may take a while to get into the story, but once you do, you are going to lose a lot of sleep over it.
P.S.: I just found out that Obsidian has been optioned for a movie by Sierra Pictures!! I hope they can do justice for this amazing book and can’t wait for more news on the movie!!
