Obsidian is book one of the Lux Series. This was the first book of hers that I read and I wasn’t disappointed. Great book with wonderful characters and overall just fun to read.
From the back cover:
This is the type of storyline you’ve seen before but that doesn’t stop it from pulling you in and not letting you put the book down. Its a quick read that engages you from start to finish and even has a few surprises thrown in. Great start to a very promising series…ok, I’m reading book three as I write this so I know it just keeps getting better.
My favorite part of any book are the characters. I can read any storyline if I love the people involved. Jennifer doesn’t disappoint. Her heroine is fun and like-able and rarely do I want to thump her and say, “what are you doing!?” My favorite male leads are snarky and egotistical. No clue why I’m drawn to that but I am. Daemon is one of my favorites (he’s up there with Cassandra Clare’s Jace).
I first read this on my iPad so I didn’t pay much attention to the cover but recently I purchased my own paperback (I wish it was available in hard copy!) and have fallen in love with the cover. Might have something to do with the fact that I got to meet Pepe Toth who is Daemon on the cover (more about that in a later post).
If you want a fast moving, fun book with great characters and some teen appropriate romance then this book is for you. There is a prequel called Shadows that I highly recommend. You don’t have to read it to understand the story but it sure does add a ton of back story and character development. I had read Obsidian and Onyx before I read it but think it would be best to read either first or right after Obsidian.
