"An unmissable series!" -Samantha Young, New York Times bestselling author of On Dublin Street

"This is the stuff swoons are made of." Wendy Higgins, New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Evil

Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black...

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...

5 stars: "This series owned me the first time I read it and there is nothing better than having Daemon Black's POV."Kelli C Jack Sawyer's Heart, Goodreads.com

5 stars "The personality and wit of the main character, Katy, had me laughing out loud on several occasions. This book offers the perfect amount of teasing, flirting, and sexual tension that I think we can all appreciate. --Tabatha Vargo, New York Times bestselling author of Little Black Book

5 stars "I love Daemon--but then, who wouldn't love the hot alien next door? ?Margo Bond Collins, New York Times bestselling author of Under Her Skin

5 stars: "The dialogue, romantic tension & action were great. Loved all the characters. Love the focus on Katy & Dee's relationship, and of course, the guy--Daemon Black. Smokin hot & obnoxious as hell. Sigh." --Cindi Madsen, USA Today bestselling author of Falling for Her Fiance

5 stars: "I teen-girly giggled my way through this one in record time. Yeah, it was pathetic. I sat here on the couch giggling at the witty banter and sexual tension like I was fifteen years old again. Good times. (I'm a nerd, what can I say?) Well written, creative plot, very likable characters and over all fun. --Kelly Oram, bestselling author of Cinder & Ella and If I Were a Movie

5 stars: "[Jennifer L. Armentrout] really understands the key ingredients to a fantastic YA romance swoon-worthy guys, realistic heroines, wistful romance, action, and humor." --Rachael Wade, author of Preservation

5 stars: "I loved the take on aliens, and the characters are so feisty and fun! It's one of those "new girl moves to town and falls in with a group of non-humans lead by a gorgeous yet douchey guy" kind of stories, but Katy is a really refreshing main character. She's snarky and can stand up for herself and despite her attraction to Daemon, she's not afraid to call him a dickhead when he's being one." --Kat O'Keefe, Katytastic Booktube
