The Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout is the story of young Katy who moves to a small town in west Virginia. And although she predicted it to be infuriatingly boring. She didn’t expect to be moving in next to an extremely hot, arrogant and sarcastic, alien. Yes, you heard me right, alien. Now if you’ve ever seen the Lux series on the shelves, then you would know that the covers are definitely not the best. But as they say, don’t judge a book by its cover. So is this book series on the same level as the covers, or is it worth the money?
The Lux series consists of 5 books and a new book that was just released from Daemon’s point of view. They follow the now chaotic life of Katy as she discovers a new life filled with unbelievable events and dealing with the consequences that come with discovering all these new things around her. And of course dealing with Daemon and the fact that she may or may not be in love with an alien.
So will you enjoy the Lux series? If you’re a big fan of twilight, then you will probably jump up and down with excitement while reading it. But to all those people who aren’t fans of twilight, DO NOT GO ANYWHERE! The Lux series especially obsidian, the first book, does have a lot of similarities with twilight but it is its own book and not liking twilight won’t guarantee you won’t like this series. This series is a very light, fun, easy and an enjoyable read, you can devour them in a couple days and still want more. The setting and story are mostly simple and won’t give you a headache. If you’re looking for something stress-free that you can love and laugh at, these books are defiantly for you.
Sick of vampires but still want an awesomely hot guy that you can fantasise about??? The Lux series will give you exactly that. Daemon is a hot alien who you can make you laugh, get you frustrated but still make you love him in the end. If you’re a sucker for a bad boy/actually a good guy romance, then this is the perfect series for you. Katy is also an interesting, relatable character. Especially considering she loves books. She’s a little awkward but also strong. She goes through a lot during the series, but doesn’t give up and continues to always be stubborn and keep Daemon on his toes.
If you’re looking for something with more of a complex story, less romance, and a little bit less cliché this series isn’t for you. But if you want something you can power through, that will make you laugh and make you feel all fuzzy and warm inside then the Lux series is perfect! If you’re not sure then go pick up Obsidian and check it out. And after you finish, you will probably find yourself running to the bookstore for more.
