Jennifer Armentrout’s OBSIDIAN Optioned For Film

Sci-fi romance OBSIDIAN poised for a big screen debut!

Jennifer Armentrout’s Obsidian, the first book in the Lux series, is getting a movie adaptation!

Sierra Pictures and Mr. Mudd will finance and produce the film, respectively. Ava Dellaira, who previously adapted her own novel, Love Letters To The Dead, will also pen this script.

The story follows Katy Swartz, a bookish teen who moves out to West “By God” Virginia (as she refers to it) with her mother to start over. She soon makes a good friend in her neighbor, Dee, and an unexpected enemy in Dee’s standoffish brother, Daemon. It turns out Dee and Daemon have a dangerous secret and with one accidental touch, Daemon makes Katy a massive target in an intergalactic war than means to destroy his family and his entire alien race. They’ll reluctantly have to stick together until Katy stops radiating the effects of Daemon’s powers, but trouble is already at their doorstep.

Obsidian is the first on a five book series by the author, who has several other YA and adult novels under her belt.

Armentrout shared her joy on Twitter:


Official Synopsis:

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.
