When she discovers that a corporation headed by vampires with a sinister motive is to blame, her world is turned upside-down.

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.

Set in Hawaii, this short novel, Obsidian, by Kayla Curry deals with a vampire takeover of the island, when they organize to bring down technology and push Hawaii into chaos! Ava Tanner, the MC in Obsidian, thinks she finds love, but is fortunate enough to learn her mistake, before she becomes too deeply involved. The elements in this story are pleasantly surprising, and although somewhat farfetched add to the storyline. Kayla has put together a reasonable vampire story. Although, my thoughts would be that the book needs a little more editing, to make it a better read, I would not hold it against Kayla's capabilities, with this being her first book.

In “Obsidian,” the first installment of Kayla Curry’s Mystic Stones Series, readers are introduced to a future world that doesn’t look and feel all that different from the present. And just as this familiarity lulls the reader into a false sense of security, Curry unleashes of a series of plot twists and surprises that continue until the end of the novel. Ava, the main character, has her world turned upside down on so many occasions that it’s a wonder she remains upright. And while I thought she fell in love a bit too easily, I had to remind myself that she’s at an age where love often comes easily. I’m still not convinced we’ve got the whole story on Tom. Or Jesse, for that matter … although that may be because he stays erect all night without the benefit of Viagra or Cialis. ;o Joking aside—Curry delivers a tale that is original and innovative. “Obsidian” is more than a vampire story. There’s magic, mystery, and mythology woven throughout (sorry, no spoilers here), in ways that are unexpected, imaginative, and masterfully executed. For those tempted by its appealing cover or the presence of vampires, let me assure you: “Obsidian” is no siren song. Check it out and you won’t be disappointed. I highly recommend “Obsidian” to fans of YA, NA, PNR, and vampires.
