Obsidian by Kayla Curry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you're looking for something different, Obsidian is definitely the book for you. The idea behind this book is unique from any other book I've read. There are so many fun and interesting characters introduced. Ava is lively and easy to like. Up until the point where we are introduced to her, she has lived a pretty ordinary life. She carries that view of herself through the story, which makes her feelings and emotions throughout the story more realistic. Tom is pretty complex. At any given point in the story you're really not sure how you're supposed to be feeling about him…love him, hate him? You can decide for yourself. Jesse is another complex guy. I would like to learn more about him.
The story telling is great. I love that the author was able to incorporate so much of the Hawaiian setting and folklore into the story, including the language. It was a really fun way to tie the characters into the story.
The dynamics of the vampire world is pretty complex in this book, and we don't really get to learn a whole lot about them, which is okay, since we're learning as Ava learns. The way the book ended leaves no doubt in my mind that there will be another, and I'm looking forward to learning more about Ava, Jesse, their friends, and the vampires.
