Obsidian – Lux #1 – Jennifer Armentrout

I didn’t expect to like this book so much because I tend to set my expectations pretty low when I start a new author and series. Plus, it’s geared toward young adults which sometimes can get all high schooly and mean girlish. But this book mostly stayed away from that sort of immature drama. It surprised me.

Katy moves from Florida to a small town in West Virginia with her mom. She meets the neighbors and loves the sister but the brother is a total jerk.

She starts noticing weird things and thinks it’s all in her head but soon her life gets some unwelcome excitement.

The plot was interesting but I think the tension between Damaen and Katy went on way too long. There comes a point when I just tire of things being dragged out. Also, if a guy continues to be a jerk, it becomes a dysfunctional relationship…maybe even abusive.

I went ahead and downloaded the next book in the series.
