A friend gave me Obsidian for Christmas and told me that I had to read it and that I would absolutely love it. Unfortunately, all the hype turned me off from it until I was packing to move and it was one of the books I hadn't packed so I decided to take it on vacation with me. I'm happy to report that I loved it! It is a different take on aliens and the character development was awesome! Katy, our lead heroine, is a character I can relate to. Hello! Book lover/blogger and gardener. Interesting combination but it reflects real life interests. And let me tell you about the hero. You'll want to love and slap Daemon all in the same minute. But his sister, Dee, is loveable if not ADD from the get go. This book is awesome! Go read it! I can't wait for book 2!
