Synopsis

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...

Mary’s 5 Star Review

I searched all my life for the perfect book boyfriend. The one who made my toes curl, and set my heart a flutter. A lot have come close, but there was that one that I couldn’t get out of my head. He was everything I dreamed of and more. Daemon Black fit that bill, and since I was introduced to him, there was none that could compare. I may sound crazy referring to him as my perfect man, but the truth is I’ve loved him from the moment. He opened that door shirtless, and acted like a jerk towards Katy, and now after reading Oblivion, I’m even more head over heals in love with him.

The Lux series is perfect in my eyes, and I would have lived a happy existence, without Daemon’s pov, but now that I’ve had the opportunity to read his thoughts I have a new appreciation, and admiration for him. I’ve always known there was more to him then a pretty face. I adore him when he gets all cocky, but for the love of sweet baby aliens everywhere the man has a heart filled with love and compassion. Katy I love her and maybe I should hate her for snagging the man of my dreams, but she’s perfect for him, and the story.

With the alternate pov it’s not an exact retelling; it’s impossible for each character to remain stuck together for the entire story. What we get is several scenes that we haven’t seen, my favorites are the ones with Dee, and also some other characters that he put in their place. I discovered his love for Katy started slowly, and evolved into this super galactic love. He protected Katy without any reservations, and she did the same. Each side of this story has captivated me for so many different reasons.

Daemon Black has taught me everything I need to know about true love. You certainly don’t choose who you fall in love with, sometimes it chooses you, and takes you to places you never imagined. Some choices aren’t easy, and many are as simple as breathing. Life is full of surprises that turn your world upside down, and it’s all ok, because everyone has different paths to follow.

“I’ve always found that the most beautiful people, beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly una ware 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.”

This is clearly my favorite series ever. I’ve read these books more times than I can count. Oblivion is a special book. It should be cherished, and read with a carton of rocky road ice cream. It is a must-read for fans of the series, as well as newbies. Everything you would come to expect from the arrogant alien and then some. Jennifer L. Armentrout is my hero. I’m so happy that she gave us this pov. If I could I’d give her a gigantic hug. She gave us everything we could have hoped for from this series, and so much more.

Interview With Daemon

Is there anywhere on Earth that you would like to visit with Kat that you haven’t been to before?

Italy would be nice.

If there was one moment in time you could change, what would it be? 

The last thing I said to Dawson.

After having to deal with so much, is there anything you are afraid of?

Losing Kat and my family. That will always terrify me.
