Obsidian - Jennifer L. Armentrout
Obsidian is the first novel in the Lux series. This book is free for the kindle. This story is a whole new take on strange next door neighbors. Katy and her Mom just moved from Gainesville Florida to Ketterman West Virginia. Ketterman is so small they don't even have mail delivery. Katy is just starting her senior year in high school and this move is a major change, but Katy understands her Mom's need to start over. Katy's next door neighbors have a girl and a boy her age. Twins actually. The girl Dee is nice. The boy Daemon is just mean. The trouble is he looks so good. As Katy spends the summer getting comfortable in her new home, with her new friends, Daemon becomes even more annoying. What's up with these neighbors? It turns out Dee and Daemon are not your normal people next door. They bring a whole new meaning to illegal alien. By the time Katy figures out what's going on, she's not just amazed, her life is in more danger than she ever imagined. This is a great book. The author is self-aware enough to joke about the angst in young adult supernatural novels. Very highly recommended.
