I read Obsidian a few months ago but never gotten around to reviewing. The truth is, Obsidian isn’t meant to be reviewed. It’s too good for such an everyday treatment. Instead, I decided to do a cover comparison for this awesome book.
Obsidian is the story of Katy, a book blogger who just moved to the middle of nowhere. She falls in love with her neighbor Daemon, who just may be an alien…
Read our review for Obsidian here at OBS.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don’t kill him first, that is.
Although Katy looks gorgeous, the cover for Obsidian itself is not. While normally I’d go for covers like these, I think having a random girl on a cover doesn’t suit Obsidian. The American cover is much better, as it actually shows Daemon. However, in the end I guess it’s okay.
For a different book, this German cover would be absolutely breathtaking. The thing that changes my opinion is the fact that, contrary to German belief, Obsidian is not contemporary romance! It’s a book with aliens! Come on, at least stick in a little green.
They’re both wearing close to nothing. Whatever.
So which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
