Review: Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series: Lux (book 1.5 / 2.5 / 3.5)
*ebook edition features first three books in Daemon's POV. Paperback only contains Obsidian*
Publication Date: 1st December 2015
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...
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
I loved the Lux series when it first released and I was excited to read this book but I have to say while I liked it, I didn't love it. It was enjoyable but there was nothing all that exciting or overly surprising, despite there being many new scenes featuring the Luxen, and after a while I had to take a break from reading as Daemon's 'voice' started getting on my nerves... Reading breaks aside, I laughed, I swooned, I enjoyed. Plus, I can't deny that it was excellent value for money; 3 books (ebook edition) for the price of 1!
Definitely worth a read for fans of the series!
