Mini Review: Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: Lux #1.5
Publication Date: December 1st 2015
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Amazon ~ Goodreads ~ B&N

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...

My Rating
4/5 stars

My Review
“And I also know that although she wasn’t mine now, she would be one day.”

Oblivion is a must read to anyone who wants to re-read the Obsidian, or wants a step inside Daemons head.

Oblivion is essentially the first book in the Lux series, but told from Daemon's point of view rather than Kat's. You get to see what exactly Daemon was doing when Kat wasn't looking, and everything that was going through his mind.

I absolutely loved Obsidian and Daemon so my love for this book is evident. Even though you knew exactly what was going to happen (if you read the first book that is), it still felt like a brand new book where you have no clue what the main character has up their sleeves. Daemon never disappoints and always keeps you on your toes.

I gave Obsidian a 5/5 star rating, but I only gave this one a 4/5 because no matter how much I loved Daemon and his point of view, it just wasn't the same as seeing things from Kat's eyes.

If you love this series, definitely give this book a try. You will not regret it.

Happy Reading,
