Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsidian: ( Obsidian Lux #1 )
Published By: Entangled Publishing
By: Jennifer L. Armentrout 

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is. 
Usually I'm not a fan of reading about Aliens but once i heard about how amazingly good this book was i had to read it, and let me tell you this has been the best decision i ever made. After reading the first chapter of Obsidian i couldn't let go of the book it was amazing literally i absolutely loved it! Each and every page of Obsidian was filled with goodness. Jennifer L. Armentrout has weaved such a beautiful story together combining romance, excitement, and humor making this book so thrilling to read. Shes taken Aliens to a whole new level! After reading Half-Blood i fell in love with Jennifer's books instantly she's full of surprises, i cant wait to read all her books!

All of the characters Jennifer created are all so amazing that you would fall for them instantly.

I loved everything about Katy starting with how controlled she is when Daemons near and how she doesn't fall for him so easily. I admit i was pretty impressed on how strong Katy was after all the bad news she had come across, i mean having to move to West Virginia right after she figured out her father had died is pretty tough. Katy would be a perfect row model.

To tell you the truth i loved Daemon in this book. Yea he can be a total jerk sometime but hes actually a really sweet guy if you got to know him better. Its actually pretty funny how he can be the worlds biggest ass at one moment but then the next he could be extremely caring and sweet.

Dee is just so fun she gets along with everybody. Shes always looking on the bright side of things and is always so enthusiastic. What made me laugh was how she tried to get Daemon to get along with Katy i must say those were my favorite parts.

This was my first book i ever read about Aliens and let me tell you it was spectacular! I cant wait to read Onyx! Trust me you would fall for this book instantly!

I rated this book 5 out of 5 stars!

Reveiw: Clockwork Prince By: Cassandra Clare

Clockwork Prince: ( Clockwork Prince #1 )
By: Cassandra Clare

In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa's powers for his own dark ends. With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister's war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will; the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?
As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

Okay first of all Clockwork Prince was amazing i absolutely loved it! I was immersed into its pages through the beginning to the ending devouring each and every word.The book kept me up for hours i couldn't sleep, it was my addiction. I must say Cassandra Clare is one of the most amazing fantasy authors I ever known. Her writing is beautiful , mysterious, and breathtaking it leaves you wanting more.

Tessa is brave, funny, and smart. No wonder Jem and Will would fall for her, shes everything a man could wish for. Tessa still doesn't know what she is but is slowly discovering bits of information on her own and through her brother Nate. Instead of being a proper good little girl like she always is Tessa changes it up.

Will on the other hand is beautiful, hot and sexy. He plays a jerk in most of the novel but hes actually a pretty sweet guy the way he treats Jem is admirable. With the help of Magnus Bane Will discovers the truth about his curse and how it isn't the way it seems.

Jem is sweet and caring to everyone. Hes always there for Tessa during the painful times always comforting her, and constantly smiling at her. In this novel Jem has become a braver and stronger young man, protecting Tessa through their journeys together.

New characters have been introduced in Clockwork Prince and there are still many mysteries to solve. This book is dripping with excitement! If you haven't read this book yet I suggest you get on it now.

I rated it 5 out of 5 stars!
