Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Book blogger extraordinary Kat is a recent transplant to this odd small town so different from her Floridian roots. But things in the seemingly boring town are about to get interesting when she meets the neighbors. They’re not human and Katy is about to turn the page from sci-fi reader to sci-fi reality star. But the biggest comic joke is on her when she finds that her survival is dependent on the most infuriating jerk in all the universe.
Obsidian was a complete indulgence in love/hate relationships. Kat and Daemon’s banter was cute and funny building this edge of your seat romantic tension which wraps you up while waiting for it to boil over and explode. I liked the characters and how they interacted with one another. There was some great action sequences as well.
I found the framework for the story and characters to be based on Twilight. The whole snarky bookish new girl, friendly perky, plucky sister, and the handsome brooding mean guy who really just wants to protect his family and fellow aliens. The setting, living in that area because it masks what they are, and a lot of the threads like Kat going to get a book and is attacked are alike, but Obsidian isn’t as blatantly similar to Twilight as Pure was to Vampire Academy, plus the storyline does differ quite a bit so it was entertaining in it’s own right.
So I think if your looking for something fun to read Obsidian is a great choice for action, and romance.
