Book Review: Obsidian 5/5 Stars


Overview: Normal girl, Katy, moves from Florida to West Virgina for a new start. Her new town is small and weird, everyone in town seems to hate her just for moving in. That is except for her bubbly next door neighbor Dee. The two strike up a friendship against her twin brother, Daemon’s, wishes. Then weird things start happening; Daemon starts being nice to her, they get attacked by a bear and she gets attacked by crazy guy. In both cases there is a bright blinding light out of know where quickly followed by an electrical storm. In a last ditch effort to get Katy to stay away from Dee, Daemon takes her out to a special spot in the woods and acts like the biggest jerk. Holding back tears, she runs through the woods to go home. She puts one step on the road, and feet from her is a truck barreling forward. With no time for him to stop or her to move, she knows she is going to be pancaked. Then she isn’t. Time seemed to stand still as she looked around, the truck and driver weren’t moving but the engine was still roaring from his foot on the gas pedal. Daemon was at the edge of the woods glowing like a fireball. Life has changed forever.

Opinion: HOLY COW! First aliens normally are not my thing and admittedly, I get a lot of books based on name and cover (I know I shouldn’t but I do). So I didn’t realize this book was about aliens…but I am so glad I picked it up! The story line is amazing and it is well written. It is first in a series, and I am so glad because it is amazing! So much tension and danger everywhere, I was on my toes all night unable to put it down. It reminds me of a TV series from the 90’s called Roswell. If you haven’t checked out either this book or the TV series, do so. Even if you are not into aliens normally you will love them!

Recommendation: YES!

I'm an author with an associate's in psychology. Interested in a lot of different things, and love controversy. The more controversial the better, but that's not all I'm interested in. Can be a bit confusing at times, but that's normal!
