It's no wonder author Jennifer Armentrout has become one of the top authors in almost every YA reader and blogger.
With over 40 books, and more coming, in her career, talented in both YA nad NA genres and a lover for anything "Supernatural" and "The Walking Dead" series, Jennifer Armentrout has created a faithful reading audience and has connected the meaning of a cookie with kittens.
Dean agrees too!
So, today's post is one of those in which I'd like to introduce you to the world of the LUX. This series was one of those which popped up every time I checked on GoodReads (back on 2013). So after the reviews I saw, I decided to give it a try.
Boy, I mean alien-boy, did I regret not starting sooner!
The story follows Katy who moves into the middle of nowhere somewhere in West Virginia, with her mother after her father's death. She likes books, has a blog and gets to meet the hot-as-hell but want-to-stab-till-death Daemon and his sister Dee.
The first chapters explore their meetings and the mysteries behind the twins.
What's more interesting is that Jennifer has revealed on her site a different version of the first chapter of "Obsidian". It did remind me a little of a thriller but I am glad that one didn't pass. One more important part about this series is that the books will become a movie! We are all still waiting for more news about casting but you know how long these things can take.
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.
Below are the covers of the first editions for the four books
And these are the bundles of all the books above with the fifth and final book too!
On December 1st, "Oblivion" is going to be released. The Kindle version includes Daemon's POV from all three books, while the print version will include only "Obsidian". We all know how we like our glowing boy but I am sure you'd love to have more of this particular character!
OBLIVION 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...
