Book Review - Obsidian (Lux #1)

Book Review


Bookshelves: Series, Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal, Aliens, Teen Romance

Rating: 3 of 5 stars (It was ok)

Recommended Age: 17+ 
     This book is full of language and sexual tension.  There's not much actual romance but the lust for it is intense and on almost every page.

This book was good.  Aliens are a new one to the ya romance scene, at least for me.  This book was written well and kept me going but it's not something I'd want my daughters reading until they were much older.  There is a lot of language, but that wasn't my biggest reason, the lust and sexual tension just jumps off almost every page.  Dameon is a complete jerk but he's hot, so our fair heroine is constantly thinking of him and his rippled abs.  I'm not a fan of romances where the male is a complete jerk, thinks it sends a bad message to those young girls reading, but I know many will argue he has a background that "makes him" act like that.  No one ever has to be a jerk, no matter the circumstances and the authors that can write a character who has a reason to but DOESN'T is what really sells me.  But even though I didn't find Dameon's doucheness attractive, I still really liked the story.  I liked how our heroine is real and not perfect and screws up and risks her life for her friends and sense of duty.  She doesn't sit around and mope that he's a total tool 99.9% of the time, that, I like in a heroine.  I'm curious with the ending and it makes me want to continue to the next.  

Happy Reading!
