You guys all know I’m pretty obsessed with Jennifer L. Armentrout. I love everything she’s ever written and this book is a companion to her Lux world which is where many of us started our love affair with her writing. She was the first author I read when, exhausted with a baby / toddler who never slept, I finally relented and downloaded the kindle app to my tablet. Obsidian was being offered for free, so I gave it a shot and the rest is history. It was extra fun for me that the publishing house was located in Ft. Collins, CO, a city I know quite well as I attended college there and lived in the area most of my life.
Returning to the world of the Luxen and Origins and aliens among us was actually kind of a relief. That sounds odd, but really I felt like I had been holding my breath and waiting for a continuation of the adventures there. We finally get more about Luc in TDS – the great and powerful Origin we met along the way in Kat and Daemon’s stories. There’s a splash of our old favorites as well, a pinch of Archer, a dash of Daemon, but really this is Evie’s story and so we have to step away from them to fall into her reality. But Luc is there, so it’s mostly okay.
Secrets and lies are common threads that can’t be avoided in the Luxen world. Evie finds herself completely submerged in both very quickly after simply going to a club with a friend. I don’t love spoilers, so I can’t say much except nothing is really as it seems (ain’t that always the way?) and what you think you know you probably don’t. This cast is fantastic, and I’m excited for the next one. I’ll ALWAYS be excited for the next one. Always. Jennifer gives me all the feels every time I read her stuff and I find her entirely re-readable which just adds to the appeal,
You want to read this one. If you haven’t read the Lux series, no worries – you can jump right into this and won’t be lost at all. I will highly recommend that if you read this first you then go back and pick up Lux. Naturally. Start with Obsidian. You won’t regret it!
