Beginnings (Obsidian & Onyx) Review
There's an alien next door. And with his looming height and eerie green eyes, he's hot...until he opens his mouth. He's infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, he marks me. Turns out he has a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal his abilities and he only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to him until my alien mojo fades. If I don't kill him first that is.
Daemon's determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I've sworn him off, even though he's running more hot than cold these days. But we've got bigger problems. I've seen someone who shouldn't be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he's never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them-from me?
Okay, so these books were extremely romance driven. I am definitely surprised that I actually got to the end since if you know me, I extremely dislike romance. And now that I spent some time away from the third book, I am certainly going to have a hard time getting back into the story and the romance.
I found the main character really gullible and annoyingly straight-forward. She was always making her own assumptions, and wouldn't accept every one's assumptions, even when they made more sense, logically and physically. She also acted without thinking about the consequences that will come from her actions.
I wish that she didn't make such a big deal over Daemon liking her and trying to protect her from the dangerous that come from what is going on in there lives. She really needs to get her mind together and not push the people who clearly care about away.
Obsidian: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Onyx: 4 out of 5 stars
