Synopsis (From Goodreads):
Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don’t kill him first, that is.
Obsidian Lux #1 (Audiobook) Review:
I’m going to be honest, I think the only reason I made it through this entire book was based on the nostalgia connect my pre-teen-self had in relation to the aliens in high school concept. Growing up, I was in love with TV Roswell, which was a three seasoned show on the WB about these three teen-aged Aliens living in Roswell New Mexico. Sent to Earth in these pods and biologically reborn into human form after the destruction or political overtaking (can’t really remember) of their home planet, Max, Isabel and Michael found themselves amongst us.
Where, Max, the once and future Alien king falls in love with the human, Liz Parker and after saving her life one day in her father’s restaurant after she is shot, none of their lives are normal anymore.
