So I would rate it a 9/10 stars
This series was fantastic
Though I did keep flashing back to Lorien Legacies, like I could see this as from Sarah's point of view, except, Katy's much more awesome.
So here's the summary
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
THERE YOU GO the summary to Obsidian. As soon as I met the character of Daemon I was hooked (and we met him in like the first chapter like seriously)
WARNING SPOILERS BELOW FOR OBSIDIAN AND ONYX
Daemon is so freaking hot! I love how protective he is over the ones he loves and like Dee and Katy. It was so funny when he reached in between Simon and Katy. 'Oh sorry just getting something to drink.' Then when he and Katy woke up tangled together. Too good. I also read the scene from Daemon's POV, he thought it was a dream tehe. I love the line when Katy says something like 'Someday I will hunt down and kill that pen of his' or something like that. You know, since he's always poking her in the back?! We could all tell that Simon (Tehe any TMI fans reading this?) was going to like try to rape Katy or something, at least I could. When Daemon says something is off, it's off. Like FREAKING BLAKE HE KILLED ADAM AND ALMOST KILLED DEE. Like when I thought Dee was dead I was seriously like NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO and when Adam died my brain kinda malfunctioned. I didn't even know him that well, just that, you know, he wasn't a total arse like his siblings (that includes Ash). Though I did genuinely feel bad for Ash and Andrew. What's up with their names? Ash Adam and Andrew
Then there's Dee Daemon and Dawson. Like really?
I bet Matthew's siblings were Mason and Melissa or something like that. Then Chris was like Chandelier and Cheyenne. I never believed Dawnson was dead, did you? Though Beth is a bit of a whack job.
I didn't trust Blake the slightest after the whole Arum incident. I should have listened to Daemon's gut feeling like I should have originally listened to Jace's. OKAY UNIVERSE I'VE LEARNED MY LESSON! I'm not exactly crazy about the cover look, but you know, I'll get by from the amazingness of these books.
This series is defiantly going on my to buy list. I'd prefer hardcover but I heard only like the fourth book comes in hardcover. If you're wondering what I'm talking about then I'll tell you. I buy most of my books on my kindle fire or my kindle instead of in real book form. Then if I really like them I'll buy them in real life (which I'm kinda behind on) mostly in hardcover but if I can't do that than I GUESS paperback will do. Raziel, I'm so glad I didn't ask for the Maze Runner box set for my brithday. I HATED That series, I'm still too lazy to post a review about it though, lol.
I seriously skipped the TVD and Reign Season finales to read and that's saying something. Please no spoilers though, I still haven't watched them I've been so caught up in reading. Like seriously I've hardly eaten today I've been reading so much. AND I still read them after my eye appointment. If you didn't know, those eye drops make it extremely hard to read, but I just couldn't physically possible put the book down. I cannot wait to get a new one.
Opal and Origin
I would rate these books a 9/10 stars. AMAZING. I loved these so much. I literally couldn't even tear my eyes away from the book. If you saw a girl walking around Ikea today with her nose in a book, that would be me. READ THIS SERIES you will not regret it.
So Warning spoilers below
Okay so I've started taking notes so that I can review this better with you guys ;)
lets start with Opal shall we?
So Dawson is back. I feel so bad for him. OMG he just went through so much pain and suffering. I just.. I feel so much epathy for hurting characters, don't you? He's such a sweetheart, though him being in Katy's room was a little creepy. I was kinda scared that it might be a love triangle between Daemon and Dawson and Katy. IDK I'm crazy. When Dawson threw that guy through the window though, I was like HOLY DAIMON BABIES. (Covenant Series?)
AND THEN BLAKE HAD THE NERVE TO COME BACK THAT BASTARD!! THEN HOW DARE HE SLEEP WITH KATY (CREEP) AND BETRAY THEM I WANT TO JUST RIP- Okay breatheeee. THEN WILL COMING BACK NO THIS IS NOT HAPPENING.
Then Dawson he's sooooooooooo cuteeeee.. I love him. <3 But seriously Dee needed to stop being a twit to Katy it was not her fault Adam died. Like seriously even Ash is nicer after Adam's death. Did any of you notice, but I think Andrew liked Dee. And DANG IT JUST TAKE THE FRIENDSHIP BACK DEE!!! And Seriously Blake? Taking them to a strip club to meet a 14 year boy? (Though Luc is AWESOME) UGH Blake you get on my nerves. I feel so bad for Dawson he was really hurting for Bethany.
Seriously Katy needs to get over this whole jealous of Ash thing, don't you think? It's pretty obvious Daemon loves her. So just get over it Katy. I literally had to drop my kindle from embarrassment quite a few times.
Then they said Okay? Okay. BWAHAHAHA I had been waiting for that for a while now. YEs. All you TFIOS fans they said it!!! (They as in Daemon and Katy)
I had so many mixed feelings about trusting Blake. Part of me felt bad for him. The other part wanted Dee to rip his head off for killing Adam. He had some nerve betraying them. That arse hat!
I keep forgetting Dee is the same age as Dawson and Daemon like I keep thinking she's younger.
'Everything will go as planned' like heck it will
Onyx Spray, how did you guys feel about that? I thought it was brilliantly evil
I really am starting to like Andrew not really sure about Ash though.
WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO CARISSA?!!! WHAT?! That just made me sad.
By the Angel when Dee walks over on Daemon and Katy making out passionately, that was priceless.
I was actually scared that Katy might explode when she realized that in actuality that Blake had been sleeping with her
GET THE HECK AWAY FROM THEM, WILL HOW DARE YOU SHOW UP AND TRY TO KILL KATY DAEMON AND KATY'S MOTHER.
THAT WAS A CLOSE ONE! Thank Raziel Dee came.
The Prom dinner on the beach?! My feels were exploding!!!!!
I knew from the start that the Mountain raid would go wrong, did you?
THEY SAID ALWAYS TOO What are they just going to steal everything from TFIOS? lol
I thought Matthew was going to die.
WHAT?! SIMON'?! That was a nice plot twist there.
BLAKE YOU SON OF A SEBASTIAN!!!
Okay GO DAEMON BEAT UP THOSE LUXENS!!!!!! but seriously he should have accepted the help from his family. Don't turn against them Daemon don't. But seriously? Dee had the worst timing of deciding that she liked Katy again.
Daemon what have you gotten yourself into?
I seriously thought that Dawson should have tried harder to stop his brother.
Here's a literal note I wrote--------- Wait- Blake is dead? I'm having mixed feelings about this. You all are probably like what? why? You said you hated him from Opal. I just feel so bad for him. But I hate him. You see what I mean? No? Okay then.
The Reunion, if that didn't touch your heart, then you need to see a doctor people.
Here's another literal note I wrote MAKING BABIES?! WHAT?!!!!
I was very suspicious of Archer not sure whose side he was on.
Christ, that back injury sounds so gross and PAINFUL
Here's another literal note I wrote 'I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT ARCHER AND LUC ARE BUDS THEY'RE OUT THANK RAZIEL
LOL I got very high in the feels reading these days.
Nacy was so messed up did you notice? SHE LIKE HAS A CRUSH ON DAEMON he's Katy's, back off
I was really afraid something had happened to Archer when he decided to hold off the soldiers.
I WAS SO HAPPY WHEN DAEMON'S FAMILY ARRIVED. I missed Dee, even if she had been a butt face lately. The moment Archer looked at Dee I KNEW I KNEW There would be a Dee x Archer thing. Haha when Dee realized he could read minds and she was imagining him naked....
I was so happy when Katy decided to let go off the jealousy thing on Ash, who I'm actually starting to like. I am also really happy Dee pulled her head from her ass and forgave Katy to her face.
It was really funny Daemon being over protective of Dee. I loved the Archer and Dee thing while Daemon like was flipping out inside.
Daemons propasal and then the wedding #THEFEELS #ICANTEVEN
Then Archer's reaction to them being married. That was too good.
I remember in the second book when I found out someone had turned in Dawson and Beth in I thought MATTHEW but then dismissed the idea.... But it looks like I was right. Matthew You You You, I can't even describe how I feel about that. I mean I know he was doing it to protect his family.. but......
I LOVE Andrew he's so awesome. Like doing the jig dance OMG I was crying of laughter.
Then here are my literal notes from here on
PLEASE JENNIFER TOO MANY HAVE DIED ALREADY!!!!!
FREAK! THE ARUM SHOWED UP! GO TO HELL ARUM!!!
ASH BETTER NOT LOOSE ANOTHER SIBLING!!!! THE BLACKS ARE OFF DEATH LIMITS AND SAME WITH EVERYONE ELSE ON THAT TEAM.
NONONONONO ANDREW DID NOT JUST DIE.
Are you kidding me? Ash is dead too?!!! The two were just starting to grow on me! JEN! What to you have against the thompsons?!
They said Okay Okay again tehe
The Most annoying make you want to read more ending I've ever read.
As you can tell I was really distraught over Ash and Andrew's death. Paris, I wasn't really upset about that, we didn't know him that well, and I just was more upset over Ash and Andrew. I just..... Then Beth is prego... Wow plot twist. They are going to have an Origin. I hope Beth makes it, she's been through hell and back, so have Dawson, Daemon and Katy. Then the ending, how the Luxen left to go to the others..... WTF WAS THAT?!
It was that type of ending you don't mind and then you think about it later.... and totally freak out.
