Obsidian Book Review
Obsidian - Jennifer L. Armentrout

This is a re-read because I believe there is a new one coming in this series? 

 

Obsidian is honestly my least favorite of the entire Lux series. And I LOVE this series but I don't really like this book? Its too much like twilight at first and Daemon is too obnoxious. Even the second time around. Still a fun read. And, I'd say if you felt like you didn't like this one then stick through it to see how you like the rest of the series, I think its worth it.

REVIEW TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - In My Skin (The Obsidian Files #3) by Shannon McKenna
In My Skin (The Obsidian Files #3) - Shannon McKenna
In My Skin is the third book in The Obsidian Files series, and we catch up with Luke who was kidnapped in book one. He managed to escape by himself, but is so very alone, as he can't remember who he is, or who he needs to contact. This was done deliberately to ensure that the 'bad guys' couldn't get any information from him, but it's left him in a bit of a bind. He has a plan to put it right though, which lands him firmly by Dani's side.
 
The majority of the book is dedicated to Luke and Dani, with the others only appearing briefly. However, they are all together at the ending. Luke is a wonderful combination of being literal, being naive, and being strong alpha-male. Dani is, for the most part, a strong and sassy heroine with her own issues, but I also found her annoying at times. There were times when they SHOULD have talked about things, but instead, they had sex. Lots of sex (although I don't think as much as Noah and Caro did, so that was one bonus).
 
The story was well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I enjoyed the pacing, and the transitions from one scene to the next were smooth. Not everyone gets a happy ending, although I am hoping for a miracle! Hopefully I will find out in a later book.
 
If you want a contemporary, science-fiction romance, then I can definitely recommend this.

Release Day Review! Dangerous Dreams (Obsidian Flame #1) J.C. McKenzie
Dangerous Dreams (Obsidian Flame Book 1) - J. C. McKenzie

 

 

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED IN THE MOON, MIST & MAGIC ANTHOLOGY 

As a dragon shifter in hiding, Lara Stone wants nothing to do with others of her kind or finding a mate. No way, no how. She's perfectly content to work for a security company, masquerading as a simple mage. When the leader of all the dragon clans personally requests her as a bodyguard, Lara fears her secret is blown, or worse. What danger could possibly make Rafael Dragoi, the powerful Astarot, seek protection?

 

 

Dangerous Dreams is a fantastic start to J.C. McKenzie’s new urban fantasy series Obsidian Flame.

 

The characters are fascinating and full of life and the chemistry between Lara and Rafael is electrifying and there are plenty of sparks flying in every direction from every page of this story. Suspense builds throughout as Lara hides her secret while trying to handle being a bodyguard for the hot Rafael which she finds quite difficult.

 

I loved J.C. McKenzie’s Carus series so I was looking forward to starting this new series and I have to say that so far the only thing I find disappointing is that it was too short. This new world promises to be an adventurous one full of snark, passion, thrills, romance, danger and wonderful characters and I can’t wait to read the next one.

 

 

Dangerous Dreams is the 1st book in the Obsidian Flame series.

 

The story will continue in Dangerous Liaisons will be released in a box set on May 22, 2018.

 

Dangerous Dreams is available in ebook at:

Amazon

Heart of Obsidian (Psy-Changeling, #12)
Heart of Obsidian (Psy-Changeling, #12) - Nalini Singh,Angela Dawes Loved Kaleb and Sahara. Complex and dynamic, these two are the pinnacle of second chance romance! And, the pure psy plot arc comes to a head, you get some insight into some characters that have been in the background, and you finally learn some of the secrets that have been plaguing me for the entire series! Overall, a great edition. I can't wait to see where this goes. What will happen to Ming? What will happen to the psy net?

Harbinger of the Storm by Aliette de Bodard
Harbinger of the Storm (Obsidian and Blood Book 2) - Aliette de Bodard

Series: Obsidian and Blood #2

 

The Revered Speaker has died and the council must agree on his successor before the Fifth World succumbs to the star demons (this is a fantasy set in the Aztec Empire in the late 15th century). Acatl (the high priest for the dead) investigates when a star demon appears to have been summoned within the palace to murder someone. They believe the stars are demons that can fall from the sky and rip a man apart (sun worshippers, remember). Basically, Acatl becomes afraid that if the council takes too long to choose a new Revered Speaker, they won't have sufficient protection and the stars will fall from the sky and bring about the end of the world. The end of their world, anyhow.

 

Unfortunately, the middle part of the book with the investigation seemed to go on too long and it feels like I took forever to read it. It was a lot slower (reading time wise) than the first book, anyway. I'll still go on to read the third one but I really hope it picks up.

 

I read this for the "Monsters" square for the Halloween Bingo. It qualifies due to the star demons and the ahuizotls (water creatures). There may have been other creatures mentioned but I don't remember them specifically. This book would also work for the "Murder Most Foul", "Supernatural", "Demons", and "Terrifying Women" squares.
