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...

There's never a shortage of snark, or swoon when it comes to Daemon Black.  Daemon's point of view definitely does not disappoint. It has all the swoon, snark, and laugh out loud moments I had excepted it to have. It also made me love Kat all the more for dishing it right back to Daemon when he purposely pushes her buttons.

While that infuriating side of him may make him enduring, and charming, I also loved the protective side of Daemon. The warrior side of him that would do anything to protect Dee, and those he cares about, including Kat. I really liked seeing him fall for Kat, through his point of view. It definitely took the swoon up a few levels. I also couldn't help but laugh while reading his inner monologue during a few scenes. 

Sometimes you just need a little Daemon Black to get through the day. If you're a fan of the Lux series, and haven't yet picked up this book, don't do what I did, and wait almost a year after it's release to read it. Pick it up and read it now. It's a fun, quick, entertaining read. Be prepared to fall in love with Daemon Black all over again! 

TDA Fanart / Mundane Monday #293 #TDA #Shadowhunters

Happy Mundane Monday Shadowhunters! Check out the newest TDA fanart Cassandra Jean created, which Cassie shared here:

“Okay,” Kit said. “But I would just say that it isn’t always about people knowing what’s best for you, or thinking they do. Sometimes they would just miss you.”
“Livvy would miss me —”
“Your whole family would miss you,” said Kit, “and I would miss you.”
I can not wait for more of the TDA series. May seems so far away. Just in case you missed it, check out the cover reveal for Lord of Shadows, here
