Saturday Showcase (August 3, 2013)

Saturday Showcase is a weekly event hosted at The In-Between Place which features books that you wish more people had read (or, at least, heard about).

My pick for this week is the Lux series by Jennifer Armentrout.

Obsidian (Lux, #1)

Onyx (Lux, #2)

Opal (Lux, #3)

 

 

 

 

The Lux series is a YA paranormal series about aliens, called Luxen. Katy is a human teenager that befriends Luxen siblings Dee and Daemon. Throughout the series Katy and Daemon’s love/hate relationship grows as she becomes more immersed in the Luxen’s dangerous world.

I read a lot of YA, probably more than an-almost-30-year-old should, and this is one of my favorites series. The characters are likable and the stories are well paced – mixing romance with action and suspense. I’ve never met anyone else that’s read the series, but I expect that will change in the future as the first book, Obsidian, has been optioned for a movie.

The next book in the series, Origin, comes out later this month.

Origin (Lux, #4)
