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...
If you liked the Lux series as much as me, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THIS BOOK. Trust me, you will savor every sentence of this book. This is one thing I LOVE about more indie-style authors. They don't mind hugely expanding their series, especially when it comes to extra materials and novellas. Oblivion provided literally the entire Lux series in Daemon's perspective, and even if it wasn't completely, JLA made sure to include the specific scenes we definitely would want (when Daemon first met Katy, whenever he saved her life, etc). It's also such a bliss to see how their relationship prospered through Damon's eyes, and his constant mental battles of "No, you don't want her. Stop it" is absolutely hilarious. I STRONGLY recommend this book to all of JLA's Lux readers, these bonus materials are definitely re-read worthy. Get it now! It's worth every cent.
