I LOVE THIS series!!! It’s YA but doesn’t read like one, and I’m absolutely addicted! Check out my reviews: Obsidian & Onyx.
As per my Facebook girls, Michele and Sandra:
Michele: To the Girls who recommended “Obsidian” I AM 74% & LOVING IT!! Such a good book! I have LMBO a lot reading this. Really hoping this is a series, hate to see it end. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Really good YA book. 😀

Sandra: … Okay is it squee worthy? Be honest, I so thought it was! I can’t wait till Maryse reads it. Ahhhh…Daemon!
Michele: I totally think it is squeee worthy! I can’t wait til she reads it either!!! I think everyone should read it. Tee hee. I liked “Existence” a lot too. 🙂
Maryse’s Book Blog: I wanna SQUEE!!!! Really?? Ya’all squee’d a bit? I’m on it!
So here is the series, in order (thanks for the info guys!!):
- Obsidian (A Lux Novel) (A Lux Novel book #1)
- Shadows (A Lux Novella) (Lux 0.5) –> prequel (Dawson and Bethany’s story) – released 2nd in the series
- Onyx (A Lux Novel)
- Opal (A Lux Novel #3)
- Obsession <— can be read as a standalone as it is sort of a “spin off” — see below for the author’s description
- Origin (Lux Series #4)
- Lux: Beginnings (Obsidian & Onyx)
- Opposition (Lux)
- Oblivion (A Lux Novel)
As per Jennifer L. Armentrout:
Obsession does take place in the same world that Katy and Daemon inhabit, Obsession is more mature, definitely targeted toward the older crowd. It’s an adult romance, so you know what that means. Obsession will change what you think you know about the Luxens and Arums.
There will be some crossover with certain characters from the Lux Series. Obsession takes place in-between Opal and the 4th Lux novel, which is called Origin…
Hunter is a true alpha male and is one of my favorite characters I’ve ever written. He’s like Daemon and Seth rolled into one. Totally no holds bars. Hunter is… well, he’s Hunter. You don’t have to read the Lux Series to read Obsession And if you enjoyed Obsidian and Daemon, well, I think you’re going to enjoy Obsession.

OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!! I read this YESTERDAY and loved it!!!!
AND the heroine has a book blog!! Hehehehehe…there was also a couple of nods to Twilight and a nod to Touch (Jus Accardo), I love it when they do that!
I read this book a few days ago and absolutely love it. (I don’t really read/like YA, but this one was so funny^^)
Im can not wait till the next book.
Ok …omg this was awesome !! I read it today & spent the whole time yelling out loud at my kindle lol I couldn’t make up my mind if I wanted to stab daemon in the eye with a fork or pash him 🙂 grrrr . Had some douts about this book because it YA but it hooked me within the 1st 10% & just couldn’t put it down ! Freakin fantastic read 😉 thanks 4 the recommend girls 😉 xoxo
You should check out Incarnate by Jodi Meadows. It is YA as well, but I really enjoyed the book. It is quite a bit different than anything I’ve YA book I’ve read and I really think it gives something new to its genre. It’s about a society that has existed for over 5,000 years with the same souls being reincarnated into new bodies with all their memories intact. When Ana is born they are expecting Ciana’s soul, but when they place her hand on the soul-scanner there is no match. Ana is the first new soul in 5,000 years. Her father abandons her mother shortly after her birth. She is raised (if you can call it that) by her mother who loathes her very existence. On her 18th birthday she leaves to head to Heart to find out why she exists. If you liked Obsidian I think you will really like this book as well.
I just finished this book today, all in one sitting. I enjoyed it, obviously, but admit I was disappointed at the many similarities to Twilight. However, I was pleased that it ended how I prefer sequels to end, with the *spoiler*..leaves me impatiently looking forward to book #2.
I‘ve just finished this and i loved it! i was so sad when i realised i‘d actually finished it, i didn’t want it to end so soon! Such a fantastic book!
Thank goodness you knew how to surf the internet and find this vauable piece of info I so desperately needed! I couldn’t even find out if there was another book in the series; I seriously about lost control. So thanks! You might’ve just saved my life 🙂
love it need the 3rd book to come out now
Loving this series Ihave such suspicions about everyone lil!!! Great books!!!
I saw these books in the shop just wanting something to read on the plane! That was yesterday and I bought the 2 books I could not put it down and I finished both of them in 1 and a half days. I loved it and can’t wait for the next one to come
Love it! Love it! Can’t wait for Opal to come out! Daemon is To.Die.For! Totally hot! So blatantly sexy! Brazenly arrogant and confident in a cool way! I can raphsodize all night!
Good to know that others liked this series as much as I did!! I SOOOO can’t wait for the next one.
OMG im so excited i finished opal and was so mad at the end and now im happy cuz there’s a fourth !!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Btw u saved my life cuz i was about to die after opal
who is seth?
obviously i know who is Daemon , but not who is seth and i want to know who is he
Just finished Opal and the end makes me feel like I’m covered in onyx. Holy moly.
OMG, just finished reading Opal, and like other readers I felt like dieing, so much better after seening there is a fourth book. thank you thank you
Read #1 within 24 hours…LOVED it and am reading ONYX now…will read the prequel next…..
LOVE your suggestions from your 2012 BEST list Maryse!
Argh…ive just spent 2 days straight reading from book 1 to 4! I think my heart broke 🙁 and although therr is the comfort of another book in this saga I’m worried Kat is a goner. Must say I’m a total Dawson fan too since reading his and Beths story he used to be such a happy carefree guy <3 the DOD sucks.
Looking forward to this Hunter fellow, but please let Kat be alive 😀 😀
Wow I read all four books in 2 days I couldn’t put it down, now I’ve seen there’s a fourth book I’m hoping it lets us know about kat and doesn’t go onto a new family of Luxen, I have recommended this book to everyone. 🙂
I love Obsidian! I think I might possibly like Obsidian more than Onyx or Opal. I can’t wait for Origin, though I don’t know when it comes out, do you? This series has to be one of my late favorites though the story line and characters remind me a lot of the Twilight Saga. Even the setup, I won’t spoil it (though I love spoilers) but I find the characters oddly similar. Ash and Rosalie, Dee and Alice, Matthew and Carlisle…I don’t know what to make out of it but I still love the books. I’m not sure how Origin will be without Daemon though. 🙁 He’s my favorite!
Oh my god I love this series thank you Jennifer L. Armentrout
I loved it until I read origin, I hate when things start having gray areas, I prefer things black and white, luxen good, daedulus bad, but in origin there were moments when I had to side with the views of the DOD cause it only make sense that they were trying to prepare the human race for an inevitable fall out with the luxen’s. I just got so torn up about who was right and who was wrong, it gave me a sucky feeling. but I enjoyed the first 3 books.
I just downloaded the first 3 books just have to put then on thee readers hopefully will start the first one soon. Since I read in order which should I do first you have obsidian and I saw on authors site or someplace else shadows.
