Does this sound fimiliar to anyone?
While reading Obsidian I couldn’t help but notice the parallels between it, and Twilight; however I feel like Obsidian is what Twilight could have been, if more thought had been put into the characters. While I wouldn’t say that Obsidian is an action-packed novel, it certianly does have quite a bit of action in it, and the battering between our two main love interests are more than enough to keep readers entertained inbetween action scenes. ‘
Like a stated above a lot of the characters in Obsidian have parallel’s to the twilight characters
Katy = Bella
Daemon = Edward
Dee = Alice, etc.
However these character are certainly mored developed, and definitely more interesting. Katy is a book loving nerd (Just like me ^.^), who isn’t a complete wall flower, but isn’t the most popular girl in school. Daemon has the body of a god, but the mouth of a snake. He is a complete jerk who loves nothing more than pushing Katy’s buttons and watching her squirm. The interaction between these character had me rolling on the ground laughing as some points and scream that others. Some other really notable characters who have to be Daemon’s sister Dee, who is super cute and adorable and just seems like an overall fun person to hang out with.
Now we don’t actually know much about this town, other than it is super small but at the same time I think for Obsidian that is okay. The world didn’t play so much into the plot, as it was more of just a back drop for the rest of the story, and therefore too many details could have bogged down the story.
As you can probably guess I certianly gave this book and five out of Five stars for its witty characters and overall fun plot line. I certainly look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series soon, and I would definitely suggest that you do that same if you haven’t already.
