When I checked the charts this week, I half expected the same box set from last week to still be at the top of the charts and wondered what on earth I’d do if it was. Do a feature on the #2 spot? Doesn’t have quite the same ring. Luckily, there is a brand new book at the top of the Teen & Young Adult Paranormal & Urban Fantasy chart this week.
So what IS #1?
This one took me by surprise because it’s actually a science-fiction book. Whaaaa? But yeah, it makes sense because science-fiction does fall under the urban fantasy umbrella even if it isn’t always what we think of when we think of urban fantasy.
Obsidian is book one in a five book series so we can start right from the beginning to check out this series.
“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.”
Where can I get it?
As with most books that are hitting the top of the charts, Obsidian has a good variety of formats. At the moment it’s available on Amazon in e-book, paperback and audio CD format. The e-book and paperback look like really good value but the audio CD is going for something like $40 and I’m super confused as to why. Probably best to go traditional with this one.
Thanks for reading!
