The most beautiful people, ones whose beauty is only rivaled by what is inside of them, are the ones who are quietly unaware of it. -Daemon
LUX is about aliens. Not the kind your thinking of though- no big, green head with huge eyes bugging out. Oh no, definitely not. Daemon Black and his two siblings are gorgeous, everything you would want. And they have great personalities, too! Not that whole taking over the world bit, so that’s a plus. But trust me, he’s not perfect, he can be a bit of a jerk, a pain in the butt, a little infuriating at times, and yeah you’ll probably want to jump in the book and kick him somewhere not so nice. But that’s just Daemon so push past it, you’ll learn to love him! His sister Dee is a complete sweetheart and did I mention drop-dead beautiful? Like seriously, model material. She’s loyal and the very bestest friend you could ever dream of. Dawson, well you’ll hear about him…..
Anyway though, Katy is your main character and she’s a human, easy to relate to, sounds pretty but she doesn’t realize it, and she hates Daemon. Though I don’t think you’ll blame her much. You’ll see! But she loves books, blogging, and her friends. All she wants is to fit in. Daemon takes an interest in her though and the whole normal/fitting in thing goes right out the window, flying on the back of a pterodactyl. Not literally, this is an alien book not dinosaur but you get what I’m saying. They have to face evil, love, hatred, and many other challenging things together while still making time for themselves. They go on rescue missions, save the world missions, and best of all a secret mission you won’t find out about until the end of the fourth book, Origin. I’m not telling you anymore because I refuse to give things away, but trust me when I say you won’t want to put the book down.
He would burn the world for her if he had to. He’d do anything to keep her safe. This suspenseful 5 book series is more than I bargained for. I was absolutely not prepared for how much I would fall in love with these novels and not want them to end. I actually miss Daemon teasing Katy and her blushing; oh and of course him poking her with his pen….. This is a definite Grab it and Read. There are technically six books including Shadows which is a prequel that I did not and am not going to read. The five books (Obsidian, Onyx, Opal, Origin, and Opposition) stand on their own and are amazing enough by themselves. If you do however decide to read Shadows I suggest doing so BEFORE you start the series otherwise it is kind of irrelevant information that you already know. One thing I loved about this book was that at the end of just about every chapter SOMETHING happened. I actually looked forward to it because I knew a major occurrence was just around the corner, or should I say page…. There is romance, drama, lots and lots of action, twists, mysteries, pain, joy, and it’ll give you goosebumps. Trust me, you’ll be oo-ing and ah-ing out loud without even realizing it.
I love you, Katy. Always have. Always will. I will come back for you. I will…. -Daemon
