About the book: (Taken from

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.
Book Review:

Obsidian is the most addictive book I've ever read! I absolutely 100% positively couldn't put it down! Once I started reading I just had to carry on and stayed up the whole night and the rest of the day reading it! Quite literally!

Daemon is.. obnoxious, flirty, demanding! Daemon is PERFECT! I've never liked aliens related things before but if they look, sound and act like him then... I'm a goner!

I love reading about Daemon and Katy together and I can't wait to keep reading about them! Katy is one of the most interesting and fun characters I've read about in a long time. I also love Dee! She's so full of life and joy I wish she really existed and that I knew her!

I can't wait to read more about Ash, Andrew, Adam and Matthew and their involvement.. and I have a feeling there is defo more to Dawson! Read this book if you want something gripping and that you can bite your teeth into! Plus for the hot sexy alien too ofcourse!

(Added Bonus: Katy is a book blogger! Woohoo and Daemon finds her love of books cute! I needa find me an alien!)

(At the time this review was written I hadn't read the other books in the series)
