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...
Daemon Black is back!
“Huh. Perhaps I was a bit too much of a dick the first two times I talked to her. Good thing she didn’t know I briefly considered burning her house down.”
I think the entire Lux fandom may just explode from the excitement of having not just 1, but 3 books told from Daemon’s POV. Oblivion is truly magnificent, it’s allows you to relive all of your favorite moments from the series but also brings new information to the table and shed new light on Daemon’s infamous split personality.
Obsidian – So I’m pretty sure you all think you know how Katy met her next-door neighbor but you are wrong! There are still a few scenes that JLA has been keeping up her sleeves all these years and they do not disappoint. I absolutely loved Daemon’s POV and seeing everything form his perspective and the reasons behind some of his douche-y actions.
“And I also know that although she wasn’t mine now, she would be one day.”
Onyx – Daemon’s ego knows no bounds but when Kat finally gets under his skin and walks away, he’s only too eager to win her over… after all he loves a challenge! I was just as frustrated with Onyx, if not more because of a certain character that won’t be named
knowing what happened next did not lessen any heartbreak.
“I knew right then I would burn down the whole universe for her if I had to. I would do anything to keep her safe. Kill. Heal. Die. Anything. Because she was my everything.”
Opal – Devastation, tears and more tears. That is all.
My chest ripped right open and I said what I should’ve said days ago, weeks and months ago. “I love you, Katy. Always have. Always will. I will come back for you. I will—”
The doors sealed shut.
She was gone.
Fellow Daemon and Kitten lovers had better be prepared to relive the agony that is the Lux series but to also realize what made you love these books in the first place. My only problem with Oblivion is that is wasn’t enough; I would have loved his POV from Origin and Opposition but alas Oblivion was no less epic, enjoy ladies!
***Just a little note for those of you thinking of reading this, only the ebook version of Oblivion includes Daemon's POV of Obsidian, Onyx and Opal. Physical copies only provide Obsidian.***
