Synopsis: Goodreads

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…

My Review:

Where do I begin with Oblivion? I didn’t enjoy this as much as I had hoped to! I thought I was going to be thrown back into the Lux world and really find out what happened during the first book from Daemon’s point of view… And although we got that, I felt like  I was basically reading Obsidian simply from his view, there was nothing really that made it worth it. Nothing we didn’t already know, or suspect.

It was cute, rereading the relationship I had come to love so much. It started out like two kids bickering, and yet there was some steamy tension between them and I just loved it. On the same note, the family relationship between Daemon and Dee was, again, wonderful. I did enjoy finding out some of the conversations those two had as they make me laugh! I love them.

It just didn’t add anything to the series.

Overall,

I enjoyed it because I love the characters and the universe. But it’s definitely not an integral part to the story, the series could have been left alone and it wouldn’t matter all that much.

“I don’t know how to make you better. I wish I did, but please stay with me. I need you, and I can’t lose you. Not now. Not ever.” – Daemon
