~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…

Note: The eBook edition of “Oblivion” contains “Obsidian,” “Onyx,” and “Opal” from Daemon’s POV, while the paperback edition only contains Daemon’s POV of “Obsidian.”

~Review~

“Oblivion” was an AMAZING book from Daemon’s POV, and I absolutely loved it from start to finish! It was by far the best book solely from the hero’s POV that I have ever read, and I honestly couldn’t have asked for anything better. Jennifer L. Armentrout is definitely one of my top favorite authors, and she did a phenomenal job with “Oblivion.” Daemon and Katy were amazing characters, and I absolutely loved and adored their personalities and chemistry together. Their relationship got off to a pretty rocky start, but I loved how it progressed for the better more and more throughout each book. I loved getting to read and discover Daemon’s inner thoughts and feelings about everyone and everything, especially Katy. It blew me away and made me extremely happy how much Daemon truly loved and adored Katy with his entire being, and would do absolutely anything to protect her. I also loved how he called Katy – Kat or Kitten. It was incredibly funny and endearing at the same time. I loved Daemon and Katy’s banter with each other; it was hilarious and highly entertaining, and never once ceased to make me smile. Many of the secondary characters were awesome as well, and I loved the close and tight-knit relationship everyone seemed to have with one another. I am so far and beyond in love with the Lux series, and I was so thrilled that Jennifer decided to write the first three books solely from Daemon’s POV. “Oblivion” took  me on an adventure I will never soon forget, and I will be forever grateful for the existence of books and Jennifer L. Armentrout! Thank you, Jen! <3
