I first want to say, if you have not read the Lux series, you need to. I kept hearing about the storres and seeing tons of Daemon memes and wondering, who the heck?! Then I kept seeing these big books saying "LUX" on them and wondering, "What is that?" because I'm attracted to large books. So I finally purchased the audiobooks and took listen and asked myself, "What the heck took me so long to jump on the bandwagon?!" I purchased the books and added them to my bookshelf. I had too- the story was excellent! I was obsessed with the storyline. Jennifer L. Armentrout really put her foot in it! (Except with Obsession).
So when Oblivion came out, I purchased both versions, as always. I'd previously read Obsession and wasn't very happy, so I was praying this story wasn't damaged in any way!
The story is about Daemon and Katy- just like the LUX series. It's funny to hear his POV, but it's not really making much of a difference from the original read. He sorta made his thoughts and intentions obvious in the original telling. His flirtatious pen pokes, his getting all up in her personal space and stuff- all ready understood. It's what made the books so good to begin with. It wasn't just Katy who felt the electricity, no pun intended.
Hearing Daemon's thoughts when he's kicking himself in the butt over his mistakes is also very humorous, but nowhere near as funny as when he has to rescue Katy (or himself) from Simon! Those moments are the funniest when it comes to a guy's point of view. Very realistic and did add to the original telling.
But honestly, was this book really necessary? Nah; it was a good way to make some extra money by repeating a story we already knew. Wasn't much different, just a rehash from a diff POV. But I enjoyed it nonetheless. Bravo, Ms. Armentrout on gaining a bit more money from me! Yeah, I paid for it in audio and physical form while she's laughing, all the way to the bank. LOL On to the next book.📚
