Oblivion (Lux Series 1.5) - Mini Review

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...

Mini Book Breakdown

This book is the first three books from the Lux series from Daemon's POV, well at least the e-book is. If you got the actual book it's just Obsidian instead. We get to see his thoughts and the reasoning behind all his actions. My favorite of the three novels is the retelling of Obsidian, I mean they are all great but there is just something about the first one that is my favorite. That is because well the action is mainly all from Katy's POV and it shows, to me this drags a little at some points well as in the original ones there was lots of actions.

But it's so great to get more of Daemon as he's my favorite book boyfriend to date. I adore him! I mean he's caring, romantic, understanding, protective, sexy, powerful, sweet, strong, funny, and thoughtful. Why would you ever need more?! You wouldn't, ever. He's perfect.

So lastly, if you love Daemon or the Lux series at all, then you will love this, I recommend getting and reading this if you haven't already. It's well worth it to get a Daemon Black fix!
