Book Review #29 [ICED by Karen Marie Moning]

The year is 1 AWC—After the Wall Crash. The Fae are free and hunting us. It’s a war zone out there, and no two days are alike. I’m Dani O’Malley, the chaos-filled streets of Dublin are my home, and there’s no place I’d rather be.

Dani “Mega” O’Malley plays by her own set of rules—and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive. Possessing rare talents and the all-powerful Sword of Light, Dani is more than equipped for the task. In fact, she’s one of the rare humans who can defend themselves against the Unseelie. But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.

Dani’s ex–best friend, MacKayla Lane, wants her dead, the terrifying Unseelie princes have put a price on her head, and Inspector Jayne, the head of the police force, is after her sword and will stop at nothing to get it. What’s more, people are being mysteriously frozen to death all over the city, encased on the spot in sub-zero, icy tableaux.

When Dublin’s most seductive nightclub gets blanketed in hoarfrost, Dani finds herself at the mercy of Ryodan, the club’s ruthless, immortal owner. He needs her quick wit and exceptional skill to figure out what’s freezing Fae and humans dead in their tracks—and Ryodan will do anything to ensure her compliance.

Dodging bullets, fangs, and fists, Dani must strike treacherous bargains and make desperate alliances to save her beloved Dublin—before everything and everyone in it gets iced.



How do I words everyone? How do I words? I am all over this book. Set in the same world and timeline as the Fever series, this new triology brought by Ms. Karen Marie Moning is bringing us a new story surrounding two VERY familar characters from Mac and Barrons world (the main protagonists from the Fever series in case you didn't know..)

In ICED we follow smart mouth, energetic Dani O'Malley  as she protects her messed up city of Dublin alongside mystery club owner Ryodan. Now, guys I'm just gonna start out by saying I like Dani and Ryodan wayyy more than Mac and Barrons.

I guess mostly because Dani grew up in this world so she knows her stuff, she knows how to protect and to fight for herself. And Ryodan (unlike Barrons) is much more -- easy to like. I'm not saying Ryodan is some saint because he is not. He's a robot like figure. Calculating and cold. Not to mention his business Club Chester isn't exactly for the weak-hearted. There's this quote that describes him well:

"She think he's not an animal like Barrons. That's he more civilized. She's right, he is more polished. But, it only makes him more dangerous. With Barrons you expect to get fucked up royally. With Ryodan? You don't see it coming...Barrons breaks heads. Ryodan turns them inside out. Barrons fucks you up. Ryodan makes you fuck yourself up."

But, he has his light moments that made me smile or chuckle mostly when he's with Dani and with Barron I didn't really have that.

Other than these two we also have the return of Christian. He's newly-transformed and slowly but surely becoming an Unseelie Prince. Christian has a bit of a creepy infatuation with Dani in here but not so much were you'd be gagging in your mouth ; more like giving him the eye. We're also introduced to Dani's best bud Dancer. Now, at first Dancer seems like the only normal person in the story. DING DING!! Normal? That's a red flag right there if you've read the Fever series. There's something about Dancer I know there is. I mean he even had the balls to stand up and call out Ryodan and Christian TO THEIR FACES. And, walked away without a scratch!

Suspicious much? Hopefully, we'll learn about Dancer in the coming books.

The surrounding issue everyone has with ICED is the relationship or could be relationship between Ryodan and Dani. Guys, GUYS!  Listen up. I'm all for Dani and Ryodan if Moning solves the age thing. I'm also for Dani not ending up with anything. But, let's be real there was no indication of Ryodan having feelings for Dani in this book. On occasion and straight-out he's mentioned that she will become one hell of a woman in her years (with which I agree). But, it was nothing more than that. I mean Dani and Ryodan was more like....well Batman and Robin. I think we gotta awhile before it goes any further. That's all I gotta say.

Either way, go check out this new series because you'll be in for a wild ride!

You need a little ICE for that FEVER?

ICED by Karen Marie Moning
Released Date: October 30, 2012

The year is 1 AWC—After the Wall Crash. The Fae are free and hunting us. It’s a war zone out there, and no two days are alike. I’m Dani O’Malley, the chaos-filled streets of Dublin are my home, and there’s no place I’d rather be.

Dani “Mega” O’Malley plays by her own set of rules—and in a world overrun by Dark Fae, her biggest rule is: Do what it takes to survive.

But now, amid the pandemonium, her greatest gifts have turned into serious liabilities.

Dani’s ex–best friend, MacKayla Lane, wants her dead, the terrifying Unseelie princes have put a price on her head, and Inspector Jayne, the head of the police force, is after her sword and will stop at nothing to get it. What’s more, people are being mysteriously frozen to death all over the city, encased on the spot in sub-zero, icy tableaux.

When Dublin’s most seductive nightclub gets blanketed in hoarfrost, Dani finds herself at the mercy of Ryodan, the club’s ruthless, immortal owner.

Dodging bullets, fangs, and fists, Dani must strike treacherous bargains and make desperate alliances to save her beloved Dublin—before everything and everyone in it gets iced.


I read all of the Fever books with Mac and Barron, and I am ready for Dani's story.

I'll be honest I know how everyone (and I too am a bit of a victim) went head over heels for Barron and his well...Barron-like ways.

But, I am so glad Moning is not continuing with him and Mac, I mean their alright but I think I may like Dani and Ryodan even more. Now, speaking of those two....have you guys seen the teasers between them? WHATTTT!

I know Dani is like 14 in the beginning so hopefully no funny business will be happening up in there but still I'm hoping she doesn't stay that way. Anyway, I'm excited for it all!

Here's a teaser. ENJOY!


“You’re not responsible for the world just because you’re more capable.”

“Course I am.  That’s what more capable folks do.”

“You could ask me to teach you.”

“Huh?” This night is getting weird in a hurry. “Teach me like you’re teaching a class or something? What are you going to call it: You-too-can-be-a sociopath-101?”

“It would be more like a graduate level class.”

I start to snicker. His sense of humor sneaks up on you. Then I remember who’s talking and bite it off.

“You want to be faster, stronger, smarter. Ask me to teach you.”

“I ain’t asking you for nothing. And you might be faster and stronger. For now. No way you’re smarter.”

“Your choice. But turn around because you’re not leaving. It’s night, and you know what that means.”

“Like, it’s dark?”

“You’re with me until dawn.”

“Why dawn? You a vamp or a zombie or something that can’t stand the light?”

He freeze-frames away, moves in on the scene. “I like sex for breakfast, kid. I eat early and often.”

Book Review #28 [Heist Society by Ally Carter]

When Katarina Bishop was three, her parents took her on a trip to the Louvre…to case it. For her seventh birthday, Katarina and her Uncle Eddie traveled to Austria…to steal the crown jewels. When Kat turned fifteen, she planned a con of her own—scamming her way into the best boarding school in the country, determined to leave the family business behind. Unfortunately, leaving “the life” for a normal life proves harder than she’d expected.

Soon, Kat's friend and former co-conspirator, Hale, appears out of nowhere to bring Kat back into the world she tried so hard to escape. But he has a good reason: a powerful mobster has been robbed of his priceless art collection and wants to retrieve it. Only a master thief could have pulled this job, and Kat's father isn't just on the suspect list, he is the list. Caught between Interpol and a far more deadly enemy, Kat’s dad needs her help.

For Kat, there is only one solution: track down the paintings and steal them back. So what if it's a spectacularly impossible job? She's got two weeks, a teenage crew, and hopefully just enough talent to pull off the biggest heist in her family's history--and, with any luck, steal her life back along the way.


And, I'm back. Hello, hello yes.

I'm starting the new season reviews with a book from a favorite author of mine - Heist Society by Ally Carter.

Now, Carter's other series is more of the spy/assassin persuasion. This one? Well, here we dive into the world of professional thieves and con-artists!

We follow Katarina Bishop and her skillful family. Along with her best bud W.W Hale, her cousin Gabrielle, the twins Angus and Hamish, and the our resident tech Simon. Kat and the gang set out to con not just anybody but a legendary thief among their world. I really loved this story it was almost like Ocean Eleven except with teenagers.

Everyone has an air of mystery around them in this book. Kat's not your typical girl besides being a thief she's also very calm and level-minded; the brains and leader of the operation. Quite a contrast, to her cousin who's all smiles and seduction and her best friend who tends to ooze charm and money.

We also meet some heavy hitters within the Bishop family; Kat's father and Uncle Eddie. Now, Kat's dad I totally love he seems pretty cool. I was a bit miffed we didn't get to see much of him but from everything that happened I can understand. Now, Uncle Eddie? Nope. Nuh uh. This is someone you DO NOT mess with. You know that one family member that's pretty quiet and to the side? Everyone has a measure of respect for him/her, you look in their eyes and you KNOW they've been through some shit? And, that when THEY give you advice, you best take it? Yeah, that's Uncle Eddie in a nutshell.

There's more to the series I can't wait for the third book to come out. I already read the second - Uncommon Criminals. I'll review it.....someday. (lol)

Book Review #27 [Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley]

Lauren Grahame has spent her whole life thinking something special was going to happen. She didn’t know what it was, she just knew it would one day be hers. But she learned the hard way that special wasn’t on offer.

So, after divorcing her cheating husband, Lauren searched for nothing special and she thought she found it when she landed a job as a waitress in a biker bar in Carnal. It was perfect: a nothing job in a nowhere bar in Nowheresville.

Then Tatum Jackson walked in. Part-owner of the bar, he took one look at high-class Lauren and wanted nothing to do with her. And he made this known, loudly.

Tate’s angry insults seared in her brain, Lauren decides the feeling is mutual and she doesn’t want anything to do with the gloriously handsome Tate Jackson. The clash of the bartender and barmaid begins but, even though Tate makes his change of mind clear (in biker-speak, a language Lauren is not fluent in), Lauren is intent on going her own way.

Until a serial killer hits Carnal and Lauren finds out Tate isn’t a bartender, he’s a bounty hunter. He stakes his claim for Lauren before he goes on the hunt for a killer but Laurie doesn’t speak biker nor does she understand bounty hunters and Tate comes back from the hunt to find his old lady has moved on.

Life throws curveball after curveball at Laurie and Tate. As secrets are revealed, women are brutally murdered, and Lauren tries to find her inner biker babe.


*Disclaimer: I just want to point some things out about Kristen Ashley's male leads and books. These guys are unapologetic bad-asses. Not one- NOT ONE- is perfect, or even exhibits "perfection-like" attributes. A quote from one of Kristen's interviews: 

"....They are who they are, they do what they do, there’s a reason why they do it and they understand it isn’t socially acceptable and they don’t give a crap. This is not to say I agree with their takes on the world."

Now about the books, Kristen is a self-published author, she's not apart of a company or whatever. So, the editing or the writing is not perfect. If that's a peeve for you, then she may not be for you. But, if you can get past that, enjoy her AMAZING books then YAY! And, also there is good amount of foul language in the Colorado Man books and the Dream Man series. So, if THAT is a peeve for you, you might not want to read those books. (lol)

Say what? I'm doing another Kristen Ashley book? Damn right I am. I'm on a K.A trip (!) right now. She's officially on my favorite authors list. I mean, honestly guys she's THE COOLEST.

Anyway, this is the first review of another K.A series - Colorado Man. In this book, we follow Lauren Grahame and Tatum Jackson. You can pretty much get the jist of the story from the summary above so I'll get straight to the core.

Lauren, our female lead, is a woman looking for a place for where she belongs. She's trying to figure out what it is she wants and where she wants to go. After leaving her no good husband, Lauren finds herself in Carnal, Colorado eventually getting a job as a waitress in the local biker bar. Lauren in the beginning is lost which is understood considering the situation she just came out of. By the end of the book, Lauren finds her inner "biker babe" and becomes a strong woman who know what she wants....

And, she finds that with the help of our alpha male/local bounty hunter - Tatum Jackson. Ugh TATUM JACKSON. I...*BREATHES* I will tell you right here in the beginning of this book and part of the middle Tate is AN ASS. He is, he really is. Tate has a foul mouth, a short fuse, protective, aggressive, straight-talker, hardworking, loyal, and devoted. Negative to the positive. When your reading this at first you don't like Tate, esp when it comes to the VERY FIRST thing that came out of his mouth about Lauren was a totally jackass-like comment. But, give it time because I can guarantee if you continue reading you will LOVE Tate by the end. Most of you will probably will WANT a Tatum Jackson of your own.

Besides the romance which by the way is hottttt. *whew* We also have a very serious problem down in Carnal. Someone is kidnapping and murdering young women. And, it's up to Tate and the DPD to figure out who. What we don't realize along with everyone else, is that this case hits closer to home than anyone realizes.

The side characters of Sweet Dreams are well....full of character. Not so much humorous as Tex or Shirleen from the Rock Chick series. But, still enjoyable. My favorite is Jonas. Tate's 10 yrs. old son. HE IS SO ADORABLE. Literally, a mini-Tate. And, I love when he first met Lauren and automatically called her MILF. (lmao)

(side note: We see two familiar faces show up in this book, Hank Nightingale and Eddie Chavez from the Rock Chick series!! *squealsss*)

Sweet Dreams is my favorite out of the Colorado Man series, always worth a re-read.

Rating: 5/5

Quote:  (Jonas and Lauren)

"I'm not goin' on dates. I'm playin' the field." 
Dad burst out laughing but I glared and snapped. "Jonas!"

Jonas looked at Dad. "I gotta keep my options open, make sure I get a good one." I looked at the celing. "Lord, deliver me," I implored and looked back at Jonas when he poked me in the ribs.

"Laurie, I'm ten." He used my words against me then grinned cheekily again. "Like I said, gotta keep my options open."

LOL Oh Jonas....

Book Review #26 [Rock Chick Renegade by Kristen Ashley]

Jules has got a score to settle against the drug dealers of Denver. Vance has made it his mission that Jules won’t get dead while dishing out vigilante justice. Jules doesn’t have time for romance, she’s too busy saving the world and she enlists Zip (the gunstore owner), Heavy (an ex-PI) and Frank (a mysterious recluse) to help.

The Rock Chicks of Fortnum’s Bookstore get involved to provide romantic advice and guidance, none of which Jules accepts at first. The Hot Bunch of Nightingale Investigations adopt Jules as one of their own. Even though Jules tries to hang on to her inner Head Crackin’ Mamma Jamma, the Rock Chicks; Hot Bunch; Jules’s long-suffering Uncle Nick; Jules’s friend the rotund, African-American, Jackie-O wannabe, May; and especially Vance will stop at nothing to wear her down.

But Jules makes some bad guys pretty angry and one is dedicated to taking her out. Vance and the Hot Bunch have to pull out all the stops to keep her alive. At the same time, Jules and Vance learn the true meaning of home but once they find this precious entity they’ve been searching for all their lives, will Jules’s enemies tear it away?


And, were back with another Rock Chick adventure in Rock Chick Renegade. In this story, we follow Jules Lawson aka "The Law" and her quest to clean up the streets of Denver. As a social worker, Jules is very much attached to the kids she takes care of. So, when one of them ends up dead because of taking drugs; she starts a personal vendetta against the dealers. Now, I say this with love but Jules is - well to me - the only Rock Chick that is capable of defending herself. For obvious, reasons of course. She knows how to handle a gun and she can kick some serious ass. I, direct your attention to the club scene when she was with the other girls and one of Vance's old hook-ups show up. HOT DAMN JULES WAS ON FIREEE~~. She laid down the Law. hehe

Now, one night during her patrol she comes across resident Hot Bunch Guy- Vance Crowe. *SWOONS*  Do you hear the angels singing? Because I do every time this hot piece of  I DON'T EVEN KNOW walks on to the scene. All Native American with his long black hair, brown eyes, not to mention his mischievous shit-eating grin.....whoooo someone hold me. Vance is third in command at Nightingale Investigations right after Luke Stark (who you will meet later on :D). He's the best tracker there is, but has a criminal record as well. Arrested for grand theft auto, he changes when he meets Lee. Like every other alpha male in existence and similar to his fellow Hot Bunch brothers, Vance is very protective of the people he cares for and Jules is no exception. So, when she gets in trouble he's on the case!

Despite the sighs, rolling of the eyes, and the "REALLY?!" moments I had while reading this, I enjoyed this. Laughter was expected because I knew the same old antics and secondary characters would make an apperance again. There was some rocky road between the two when another Hot Bunch boy comes for some time, but it all worked out in the end.

But, there was a scene where I was shocked. Something happens to Jules towards the end, and it gives me feelings. Like, I don't know whether I should beat the crap out of her or hug her and never let go. I mean damn.

Is this the end? Uh NOPE. There are more Rock Chick adventures coming your way!

Rating: 4.2/5

Quote: (when Jules first meets one of Vance's old hook-up. LOL. warning: kind of long BUT READING IT TRUST ME YOU'LL LOVE IT. :D)

"Have you slept with Vance?' I asked, even though I knew.

She learned forward with a catty smile. "It was the best night of my goddamned life."

"It's good you'll have that memory." I stated calmly as if I was truly happy for her.

"You bitch!" she screamed. Then she came at me, hand out probably to grab my hair.

I was getting that opening a lot these days. I planned my feet, caught her wrist and flipped her on her back on the floor without barely moving.

Vance did move. He has his wallet out and threw some money on the table. Everyone was staring now most of them had turned to us enjoying the show.

I took a step toward her so I was looking down at her. "Stay away from Vance." I warned.

She was struggling to get up. "Fuck you!"

"That's Vance's job," I retorted.

Vance had me around the waist and was pulling me toward the door as Jackie made it to her feet. "I won't forget this!" she yelled.

"I hope not!" I yelled back at her, fighting against Vance's arm. "That way, next time you'll keep your fucking mouth shut or you won't find it so easy to get up!"

The moment I fell for Jules. LMAO

Waiting on Wednesday: Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger

Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
Published Release: February 13, 2013

It's one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to finishing school.

Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette at tea--and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

But little do Sophronia or her mother know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn to finish, all right--but it's a different kind of finishing. Mademoiselle Geraldine's certainly trains young ladies in the finer arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but also in the other kinds of finishing: the fine arts of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and the modern weaponries. Sophronia and her friends are going to have a rousing first year at school.

Ugh, but I hate that I have to wait until next year. But, I'll do it anyway. This is Gail's first ever YA series, and it's based 25 years into the past before her hit UNF series Parasol Protectorate.

Spark by Brigid Kemmerer on Netgalley!

Gabriel Merrick plays with fire. Literally.

Sometimes he can even control it. And sometimes he can’t. Like the fire that killed his parents.

Gabriel has always had his brothers to rely on, especially his twin, Nick. But when an arsonist starts wreaking havoc on their town, all the signs point to Gabriel. Only he’s not doing it.

More than Gabriel’s pride is at stake -- this could cost him his family, maybe his life. And no one seems to hear him. Except a shy sophomore named Layne, a brainiac who dresses in turtlenecks and jeans and keeps him totally off balance. Layne understands family problems, and she understands secrets. She has a few of her own.

Gabriel can’t let her guess about his brothers, about his abilities, about the danger that’s right at his heels. But there are some risks he can’t help taking.

The fuse is lit…


I just went on Netgalley and saw that Brigid Kemmerer's next book in the Elemental Series - Spark! is up for request. So go go go~

Book Review #25 [Rock Chick Reckoning by Kristen Ashley]

Stella’s the lead singer and lead guitarist of the Blue Moon Gypsies and Stella used to be Mace’s girl. Mace broke up with her though and the loss of him rocked her world. But Stella gets a call, late at night (again) from one of the members of her crazy band. She has to go play clean up (again) and runs into Mace (and a shed load of police) and ends up getting shot.

Mace finds he doesn’t like it much that his ex-girlfriend got shot, right in front of him but it’s worse. A very bad man has thrown down the gauntlet and ALL the Rock Chicks are in the firing line. Stella doesn’t want Mace to be the one to keep her alive but she has no choice… mainly because Mace isn’t giving her one.

So, I decided to start putting up reviews for other books I read that are far very far from YA world more often. And, I'm starting with this - Rock Chick Reckoning by Kristen Ashley. Let me start by saying this is the SIXTH book in the series not the first. Weird, I know. But, I decided to take my time to read this series and not in order. It's told from multiple POVS, but don't worry you never get confused. At least, I didn't.

[The low down? The Rock Chick series consists of sassy, fiery, STUBBORN women (Rock Chicks)  and their uber SEXY ,annoying, bossy alpha males (Hot Bunch) who get themselves involved in whirlwind adventures with guns, kidnappings, etc..]

Reckoning is Stella and Mace's story. Stella is the leader of a rock band in their hometown. While Mace is one of the private investigators in Nightingale Investigations. Stella is fiery, she's stubborn (-________-) and I gotta say somewhat wishy-washy. There were moments (and I mean MOMENTS!) were I was like "REALLY, STELLA PLEASE PROCEED TO GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOU ASS AND OPEN YOUR EYES!"...and then there were moments where I was like "Oh, okay okay. You alright." Because of her, I didn't enjoy this story and I had hoped but there was a light...

You get me? (sidebar: If you read, Kristen Ashley books before, you know where that phrase comes from. XD).
Mace, on the other hand, talk about sexyyyyyy *faints* Whew~ I loved Mace but he wasn't without his faults of course. Mace showed signs of seriously losing his temper a lot, but the reasons are explained. And, I gotta say what he had to go through. Damn. I'm surprised dude can continue living sanely. 

Let's talking about Stella and Mace's relationship. Both are broken, both are frustrating, both are stubborn, both needs a good slap but they fit well like a puzzle and healed one another. I'll be honest not a huge fan of this couple especially Stella she was too stupid sometimes that I just wanted...SFDNVJDVLSDHNGIOHEGN! 

*breathes* But, still I won't make rash judgement and choose them as my fav couple because there's at least 5 more to go. Besides, these two we get a whole barn full of wacked out characters. My favorites so far are: Tex, Luke, Lee, Jet, Vance. And, I'm serious when I say this cast IS FREAKING CRAZY! AND I LOVE IT! Man, if I ever had a chance to hang out with them...esp the boys. *wink wink*

I know this series is filled with TSTL main ladies. (too stupid too live) getting into situations where you find yourself sighing SO MUCH. But, I'll hold back the impatience & ride this wave 'till the end. Until, the next Rock Chick book...

Rock On!

Rating: 3/5

"Tex! Stop saying 'fuck' so loud!" screamed Indy

"Fuck" screamed Tex. "Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck!"

Waiting on Wednesday: The Friday Society by Adrienne Kress

The Friday Society by Adrienne Kress
Publication Release: December 6, 2012

Be your own hero . . .

An action-packed tale of gowns, guys, guns—and the heroines who use them all.

Set in Edwardian London, The Friday Society follows the stories of three very intelligent and talented young women, all of whom are assistants to powerful men: Cora, lab assistant; Michiko, Japanese fight assistant; and Nellie, magician’s assistant. The three young women’s lives become inexorably intertwined after a chance meeting at a ball that ends with the discovery of a murdered mystery man.

It’s up to these three, in their own charming but bold way, to solve the murder—and the crimes they believe may be connected to it—without calling too much attention to themselves.

Tell me, that doesn't interesting? I can't wait for this to come out; trying not to have too much of a high expectation for this...but sometimes it's hard you know? XD

Book Review #24 [Insurgent by Veronica Roth]

One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.

 *spoilers from Divergent included; strong felt curse words too* : )

Today we'll be discussing the second book in the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. 

you guys. YOU GUYS. THIS BOOK. 

Talk about an emotional ride. We return back with Tris and Four after the disastrous turn-out between Erudite and Dauntless members. After both of Tris' parents died and the death of Will, Tris is dealing with the overwhelming guilt that is gnawing at her. She's facing the cruel fact of how her world is turning out right before her eyes. She's loss. But even so, Tris continues to fight and fight; she continues to search for answers and never give up. Brave and strong but selfless and thoughtful. Dauntless and Abnegation. And, I have to say I absolutely LOVED HER because of that.

Four - in this book - is dealing with being reunited with his estrange father, and we all (those who read Divergent) know how difficult that must be for him. Oh man, we see so many sides to Four, it's amazing. I mean there was this one part with his dad in the cafeteria in front of everyone. HOLY SHIT GUYS I TEARED UP. It was so...sad. ;~~~;  and NOT in a good way. Both Tris and Four kept holding back from one another. Ugh, I just wanted to scream at them to just talk! They had a good amount of arguments in here, that yet again I wanted to scream. Frustrating in a way that I don't want to throw a few punches. It's a good feeling...

The relationship between the two is amazing. It felt so real, just the way they were with each other. They have this quiet magnetism to them. It's not about the physical, well not only. But, more on the emotional level. I have to admit in Divergent, it just felt like they were using each other as a crutch and nothing more. But, it definitely develops into something more in Insurgent. Not only that, but they have both grown (esp Tris) so much that they have officially taken a spot on my hero/heroine fav list. XD

Now, let's talk about the secondary characters. But, my favorite irriating one! PETER! Peter surprised me here, with the "certain" thing he did. I was like WHOA. I totally did not see that coming. Roth does such a good job with keeping you on your toes about these characters. I mean damn it, you don't even know who to trust and YES that includes Tris and Four! 

{Caleb. MOTHERF***ING CALEB. I-I CAN'T. I really can't....}

-_______________- Anyway...

At the very end, I gasped. Quite a shocker, I have to say. I can't wait to see how this information is used.

Insurgent is action-packed, emotional, and the suspense will kill you! If you can, take the time to give this series a chance, it's a joy to read.

Rating: 5/5

"In their enthusiasm for conflict resolution, the Amity have apparently forgotten that meddling creates more conflict," says Tobias (Four). "If we stay here much longer, I am going to punch someone, and it's not going to be pretty."
 Caleb and Susan both raise their eyebrows at him. A few of the Amity at the table next to ours stop talking to stare.
"You heard me," Tobias says to them. They all look away.

LOL I loved that part.

Waiting on Wednesday: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Gaas

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Published Release: August 7, 2012

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men—thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

I read the first two chapters of this, it totally got me hooked. I can't wait to read the entire thing, hopefully I can get it.

Waiting on Wednesday: Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

I know today's Thursday but I still wanted to do this. So, here's mine. :)

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
Publication Date: July 24, 2012

The years is 1876, and there’s something strange and deadly loose in Philadelphia…

Eleanor Fitt has a lot to worry about. Her brother has gone missing, her family has fallen on hard times, and her mother is determined to marry her off to any rich young man who walks by. But this is nothing compared to what she’s just read in the newspaper—

The Dead are rising in Philadelphia.

And then, in a frightening attack, a zombie delivers a letter to Eleanor…from her brother.

Whoever is controlling the Dead army has taken her brother as well. If Eleanor is going to find him, she’ll have to venture into the lab of the notorious Spirit-Hunters, who protect the city from supernatural forces. But as Eleanor spends more time with the Spirit-Hunters, including their maddeningly stubborn yet handsome inventor, Daniel, the situation becomes dire. And now, not only is her reputation on the line, but her very life may hang in the balance.

You know there's just something about Steampunk books that are just awesome, you know? I'm looking forward to this one.

Book Review #23 [The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen]

In a discontent kingdom, civil war is brewing. To unify the divided people, Conner, a nobleman of the court, devises a cunning plan to find an impersonator of the king's long-lost son and install him as a puppet prince. Four orphans are recruited to compete for the role, including a defiant boy named Sage. Sage knows that Conner's motives are more than questionable, yet his life balances on a sword's point -- he must be chosen to play the prince or he will certainly be killed. But Sage's rivals have their own agendas as well.

As Sage moves from a rundown orphanage to Conner's sumptuous palace, layer upon layer of treachery and deceit unfold, until finally, a truth is revealed that, in the end, may very well prove more dangerous than all of the lies taken together.

An extraordinary adventure filled with danger and action, lies and deadly truths that will have readers clinging to the edge of their seats.


The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen is a wonderful start to a trilogy.

Most of the books I read typical is from a female POV; at times I read books from a male's POV. Sage has officially come on my list as one of my favorite male heroes. Our main character Sage is witty, clever, the typical underdog and a bit of a rebel. Along with 3 other boys Sage is taken from his orphanage by a cunning man named Connor. Connor devices a plan to make one of the 3 impersonate the falling prince (Prince Jaron) of their land. Now, this alone caught my attention, it's pretty obvious how dangerous that plan is.

It's a battle between Sage and the other candidates to win and convince Connor to choose them as the prince, as the ones who are not picked are killed. There's a lot of lies, backstabbing, and mind games amongst everyone in this book but not so much that it's hard to understand.

The story was smooth and easy to follow. I, absolutely loved Sage's voice. Nielsen did a wonderful job in crafting this character, it was hard not to fall for Sage and root for him. He had a tendency to be a step ahead of everyone sometimes without even trying.

The twist in the end was really good, I honestly didn't see it coming until around the actual reveal. I'm glad this is a trilogy and I can't wait to see what Sage will do next.

Rating: 5/5


“Master Graves was incensed and said, as punishment for my disruption, I would have to write my letters an extra ten times that day.
"Ten times the better I'll know them, then." I said. "How strange that you should punish me by ensuring I come out more educated than Roden, who has tried to obey you.”

Book Review #22 [Spell bound by Rachel Hawkins]

Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident.

Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?


The final book of the Hex Hall series, I give to you. I'm kind of sad this is ending, I had no idea this was the last book.

Spell bound begins where Demonglass left off. Sophie finds herself in an unknown world all by herself. In this book along with Sophie we learn much much more about her mother's side of the family. It's shocking to say the least and a bit funny concerning what Sophie and her dad are.

Sophie faces a huge responsibility in this book. The war is coming and it's all up to her. But, what makes it even harder is that Sophie has to decide should I stop them? Or should I join them? Anyone would agree when I say when faced with the possibility of gaining power, it's a tempting offer.

All of our characters from Hex Hall and Demonglass make their return, along with a few new ones. We reunite with Archer, Jenna, Cal, Elodie and others as they help Sophie prepare for the war. As a bonus we even get to see a bit more into Archer's past and who he is. I wish it went a bit more. Maybe they'll be a short novella about Archer because I'd love that. I want to know what goes on inside of his head, and how he came to be apart of the Eye.

Now, addressing the MAJOR moment towards the end. I have to say one thing: Was that necessary?
No, I don't think it was. And, it's probably the one thing in the entire book, or the entire series that REALLY bugged me.

Overall, besides that blip on my happy meter; it was a decent ending to a decent series.

Waiting on Wednesday: Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep

Dark Frost by Jennifer Estep
Publication Release: May 29, 2012

I’ve seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I’m supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I’m just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me—again.

Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects—and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school. But I’m also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way. The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom. So why do they have it in for me?

It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can’t use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me—and I’m in for the fight of my life.

I've read the first two, I'm totally invested into this series; can't wait for this to come out. Things start getting much more serious for Gwen and her friends. And, the fight with the Reapers are coming closer....

This Friday's Question:

Reading Blues: We all get them from time to time. What helps you overcome those reading slumps when nothing seems to grab your attention?
Well, when this happens to me that's when I take a bit of a break. I find that if I distance myself from searching and scrounging for a new book; one will appear on it's own. Like for example, after I read Pure from Jennifer L. Armentrout I mainly focused on writing a review for it. I did have the urge to go look for a new book but I stopped myself. After a week or so a comedy mystery series caught my eye. You may have heard it it's the Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz. I actually bought two books from the series and currently reading them. Check it out if your intrested!

Book Review #21 [Storm by Brigid Kemmerer]

Earth, Fire, Air, Water – they have more power than you dream.

Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn't want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death.

And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca.

Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all.

Today I will review Brigid Kemmerer's debut YA novel "Storm"!




In Storm, we are introduced to the Merrick brothers. We have eldest Michael, the twins Nick and Gabriel and the youngest Chris. These brothers are nowhere near ordinary, they have the ability to manipulate the natural elements of the earth. (hence elementals..hehe). Now, each brother has their own element. Mike - earth ; Nick- air ; Gabe - fire ; and Chris is water. Storm is an introduction to the Elemental world, to the Merrick backgrounds and the boys themselves.

It is told from the youngest - Chris - point of view.One thing I loved about Chris's POV whenever he was around his brothers is that you get the sense of the indecisiveness the youngest of a group of siblings would feel if they were put into a tense situation. Say, like if they fight and argue. Now, I can't say what it feels like exactly because I'm not the youngest of my family; I'm more middle/eldest. But, Brigid wrote it so well, that you understood and felt what Chris was going through.

Like for instance the scene in the yard with the four brothers..(don't worry; no spoilers) and how Chris didn't know what to do or who to back up. He was confused and helpless. And, I LOVED it. It was so good; it's one of my favorite scenes. I have to give up for Brigid she wrote the voice of a teenage boy so well. And, not many people can do that.

Okay, okay. I'm going on and on about the boys. Which trust I can continue to do. But, I have yet to introduced the other lead. Becca Chandler. Becca has some tough times at school, she's a pretty tough girl. She held her own when the time came, and never back down. She refused to become the victim again. I won't say much about the "victim" comment because it will just give away too much. We also have Hunter, the mysterious new kid and also Chris' competition for Becca's attention.

I'll be honest. I found myself at time skimming through Becca's POV, and no not because she didn't interest me. It's because the boys interested me ALOT more. (lol). I just couldn't wait until the story went back to them.

Now, for the baddies. We have an organization called the Guides. And, their kind of the people who keeps the Elemental society in check. The boys and Becca go through some problems with them, that lead to a good handful of action packed moments.

The next book of the Elemental series is Spark. And, it's told from hot headed fire-starter Gabriel's POV.

AND I CAN'T WAIT. MY FAVORITE MERRICK BROTHER! And, with Gabe's POV that means we'll also get some Nick. And, I just love the twins. O-O

Rating: 5/5


"Inch by Inch, Hunter lowered the gun into Michael's palm, finally letting go.
Michael didn't move. "You all right?"
Hunter nodded.
"Good." Michael wrapped his hand around the hilt.
Then he lifted it, cocked the hammer, and put the barrel against Hunter's forehead. "Now, where the fuck are my brothers?""

I did a combination of aww-oh shit go Mikey-hell yeah fist pump moment at this scene. LOL

Waiting on Wednesday: Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews

Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews
Publication Release: July 31, 2012

Some people have everything figured out — Andrea Nash is not one of those people. After being kicked out of the Order of Knights of Merciful Aid, Andrea's whole existence is in shambles. All she can do is try to put herself back together, something made easier by working for Cutting Edge, a small investigative firm owned by her best friend, Kate Daniels.

When several shapeshifters working for Raphael Medrano — the male alpha of Clan Bouda and Andrea's former lover — die unexpectedly at a dig site, Andrea is assigned to investigate ... and must work with Raphael. As her search for the killer leads her into the secret underbelly of supernatural Atlanta, Andrea knows that dealing with her feelings for Raphael might have to take a backseat to saving the world ...

Oooooh! I can't wait for this to be released. I'm a HUGE fan of the Kate Daniels series. Ilona and Gordon are one of my favorite authors. This story is mainly based on Kate's best friend - Andrea (the gun wielding marks-woman) and Raphael her hot on again off again lover....hopefully soon to be officially mate. It takes place around the same time of Kate and Curran's story in the short e-book - Magic Gifts. Ilona and Gordon are hosting ARCs giveaways on their blog (click here), they only a few so go sign up if you want one!

Book Review #20 [Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout]

There is need. And then there is Fate...

Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her.

When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon... and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude... or killing her.

When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

 (reviewing this book because it made me way emotional)

I bring you the second book in the Covenant series - Pure. Following the first book of the series Half Blood (I will be very emotional with this review, excuse me.)

We have Alex our hot-head heroine - Aiden, the loyal warrior - Seth our arrogant, playful second lead.
Pretty much starting off where the last one started, things get very tense between the Pures and the Half-Bloods. And, Alex gets caught in the middle of it.

She's still pretty much the same hot-headed and reckless chick she was in Half-Blood. A surprise was that we got ALOT of Seth in this book. When he was first introduced in the first book he came off as very stoic and cold. But, I loved that in this new one we see different sides to him. (and just so you know I'm totally Team Seth. >.>)

Aiden. *sigh* Aiden. What can I say? Dude, you were so wishy-washy here that I was just a bit turned off. I mean it's either this or that. I MEAN MAKE UP YOUR MIND!  See, Pures and Half Bloods together is a big no-no. Aiden is a pure; Alex is a H.B. I understood the consequences (if they were to really get together) as it was shown in a certain scene. But, even so Aiden you can not do what you constantly did to Alex all up and down this book. Push and pull, push and pull.....I mean, EITHER MAN UP OR SHUT UP.

*deep breath* 

*warning Seth-induced fangirling beginning*

I LOVE SETH. THE POOL SCENE. AND THE CUDDLE BUNNY SCENES. /faints  Seth was absolutely perfect in this book, I don't care what anyone says. Hmph.

I'll be honest I'd love it if Alex and Seth end up together. But, let's be real, hmm? Since when do the main girls EVER end up with the second lead guy -- who by the way is usually the one always there for her, but noooo yet she picks stoic oh-I-can't-be-with-you-but-I-love-you-so-I'll-confuse-you-here-and-there guy....LOL

Anyway, the next book is Deity and we will see the consequences following closer to the reveal of everyone's destiny/secrets. Now, as a certified Seth-lover I feel like I'm setting myself up for pain and heartbreak when this ride is over. And, I fucking hate it.

Book Review #19 [Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula (Cassidy Jones Adventures, #1) by Elise Stokes]

Fourteen-year-old Cassidy Jones wakes up the morning after a minor accident in the laboratory of a world-renowned geneticist to discover that her body has undergone some bizarre physical changes. Her senses, strength, and speed have been radically enhanced.

After exploring her newfound abilities, Cassidy learns that the geneticist, Professor Serena Phillips, is missing and that foul play is suspected. Terrified that her physical changes and Professor Phillips' disappearance are somehow connected, Cassidy decides to keep her strange transformation a secret. That is, until she meets the professor's brilliant and mysterious fifteen-year-old son, Emery. An unlikely duo, they set out to find Emery's mother, who is key in explaining Cassidy's newly acquired superpowers.

Their lives are put at risk when they find themselves embroiled in a dangerous, action-packed adventure. Soon they are forced to confront a maniacal villain willing to do anything - including murder — to reach his own ambitious goals.


 Besides Percy Jackson and another book series that I can't remember right now, Cassidy Jones Adventures is another middle-grade series that I really enjoy. It's a nice fluffy read when you want a break from the YA books drowning in a vampire/werewolf/witch, etc pool.

We join Cassidy Jones and Emery Phillips on a mission to save Emery's mother and to discover the secrets of Cass's newfound powers. Cass and Emery go through a lot together from breaking and entering to engaging in crazy fights with ninjas! I love the dynamic to Cass and Emery as their friendship starts to grow. Cass, even without her ablities, is sort of a person who runs on her emotions without exactly thinking first; which is exactly where Emery steps in. He helps Cass ride through this change talking her step by step on how to control it in her everyday life. And, of course how to have some fun with it.

There is a slight romantic interest in the story but nothing too important, which is something else I appreciated. Stokes focused more on Cass and Emery's friendship and adventures, than Cass using her new abilities to take advantage of her social life in school. Even so, there are some adorable moments between Cassidy and Emery as they learn about each other.

Besides, are two main leads we also get introduced to Cassidy's family. Her mother, television star dad, family friend Ben, her twin brother Nate and the adorable Chazz (her baby brother). Besides Casmery (lol my couple name for Cassidy and Emery. Lame, I know.) Chazz is my favorite. He's sooo adorable. He's completely immersed in the comic book/superhero world. One day's he's the Hulk, the next he comes downstairs dressed in black as a ninja. I can not wait until he finds out his own big sister is one of them.

The next book is Cassidy Jones and Vulcan's Gift. I will be reading that and I will be doing a review Look out for that!

To Get or Not to Get? THAT is the Question.

There are so many books that I've told myself, written down on some flimsy piece of paper that I would get. I mean you know how when you read a book, and it's just so good! Or even an e-book and you want it physically, you want the physical hardcover book? I get this feeling on so many occasions, you wouldn't believe.

But, there are reasons why I've kept myself from getting the SEQUELS to those books. Of course besides the whole "money problem". (college students are just meant to broke, you know?) Anyway, two main reasons:

1. If it's a sequel, it's mostly because I'm afraid to read it. If I've read non-spoiler reviews on said book and something about one of my favorite characters was mentioned..something bad. Then, I don't want to read it but then again I do. I have a tendency to become attached to some characters, you guys know what I mean right? And, if something tragic or whatever happens to him/her then I don't want to read that. I refuse to get my heart broken. (lol)

2. The second reason is more mainly towards the "second book curse". When the sequel becomes overridden by unnecessary additions to the plot, that it compares to the first one. This mostly applies to YA books.

So here are a list of  sequel books I'm on the fence of getting:

  • Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. (Sequel to Clockwork Angel)
  • Vanish by Sophie Jordan (Sequel to Firelight)
  • Crossed by Ally Condie (Sequel to Matched)
  • Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver (Sequel to Delirium)
  • Hallowed by Cynthia Hand (Sequel to Unearthly)

And, well you get the idea. I'm more worried about Clockwork Prince; someone told me I'd shed tears for a certain person in this one. ;~~~~;

What do you think of this? Are there any sequels you are/were worried about reading?

Friday, April 6, 2012

This Friday's Question:
Book Series Finales: Which book, from any series has been your favorite ending? What about your least favorite ending?


The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan is my favorite ending from a series. Riordan cleaned everything up so well. The characters  developed a lot. Especially Percy. Seeing how this was the moment of the war between The Gods/Demi-Gods and the Titans, it was really good. I also liked the twist of the prophecy in the end, I was completely sure that Percy was the hero it kept talking about but he wasn't. And, I won't spoil it say who it really was. However, it was a really good pick and made a lot of sense.

A close second would be Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows  by J.K Rowling.

My least favorite ending is definitely Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. That book was just all over the place..and yeah.

Book Review #18 [Out Of Sight Out Of Time by Ally Carter]

The last thing Cammie Morgan remembers is leaving the Gallagher Academy to protect her friends and family from the Circle of Cavan--an ancient terrorist organization that has been hunting her for over a year. But when Cammie wakes up in an alpine convent and discovers months have passed, she must face the fact that her memory is now a black hole. The only traces left of Cammie’s summer vacation are the bruises on her body and the dirt under her nails, and all she wants is to go home.

Once she returns to school, however, Cammie realizes that even the Gallagher Academy now holds more questions than answers. Cammie, her friends, and mysterious spy-guy Zach must face their most difficult challenge yet as they travel to the other side of the world, hoping to piece together the clues that Cammie left behind. It’s a race against time. The Circle is hot on their trail and willing stop at nothing to prevent Cammie from remembering what she did last summer.


I bring you the recent adventures of Cammie Morgan in Ally Carter's -- Out Of Sight Out Of Time.

Similar from my Goodreads review -- You know, I was a bit worried about how Carter was going to pull off this one, seeing how Cammie upped and left in the last book but she did it and IT WAS FANTASTIC.
Cammie grew up immensely in this book. I mean to think about how she was in the first book to now?!

Cammie went through a lot in this book, fighting to regain her lost memories. These books are just in first person so we always know what's going on with Cammie and her thoughts. But, this time Cammie was in the dark and so were we. You had no idea what she'd remember or what she do. Cammie most of the time in this book worked on auto-pilot; so it wasn't until someone had to scream her name that she realized she was holding a gun...

There was a moment in the book dealing with Bex that had me VERY WORRIED. I had to stop reading for a moment and I said to myself  "Let's not go there, Ms. Carter. PLEASE?" Thankfully she didn't. Loved Zach, weird how he was the sane person in this book, because usually he's "mister brooding in the corner let me be mysterious over here" guy. (lol) We got to see a different more vulnerable side to Zach and Carter did it so well that it wasn't too mushy or didn't deviate from the type person Zach is. 

A little short on Cammie and Zach's relationship. PERFECT. You know how in some YA books the guy and the girl are in danger and they decide to make-out or something in the middle of that? UGH! Doesn't that make you mad? It does for me. Zach and Cam? These two knew that there's a time and a place. And, that's what makes me love them so much. While everyone else, even her friends, questioned Cammie's sanity. Zach never did. He went along with her.

Towards the end we found out a lot of answers, and it tied up a lot of loose ends. There's only one book left in the series. ;~~~; I'm not ready for this to end. I'm not. But, it will be the final battle between Gallagher/Blackthorne v.s The Circle.

Sneak Peek : [Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout]

Being connected to Daemon Black sucks… 
Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarre connection. I’ve sworn him off even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But against all common sense, I’m falling for him. Hard. 
Our relationship issues aren’t out biggest problem… 
The Department of Defense is here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And when a new boy shows up a school with a secret of his own, things get complicated fast. I need to choose between my own instincts and Daemon’s. 
But then everything changes… 
I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. Daemon’s never going to stop searching until gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me? 
No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies

Onyx is the second book in Armentrout's Lux series. Now, I know I've never done a review of Obsidian (the first book) or the prequel Shadows but I sure can tell you it was awesome! I just wanted to share this snippet; Chapter 1 of Onyx (courtesy of Ms. Armentrout's blog)- just to give you probably the top reason why I can't for it:

Ten seconds passed between when Daemon Black took his seat and when he poked me under my shoulder blade with his trusty pen. Ten whole seconds. Twisting around in my seat, I inhaled the unique outdoorsy scent that was all him.  
            Daemon pulled his hand back and tapped the blue cap of his pen on the corner of his lips. Lips I was well familiar with. “Good morning, Kitten.”
            I forced my gaze to his eyes. Bright green, like the stem of a freshly cut rose. “Good morning, Daemon.”
            Unruly dark hair fell over his forehead as he tilted his head. “Don’t forget we have plans tonight.”
            “Yeah, I know. Looking forward to it,” I said dryly.
            As Daemon leaned toward me, his dark sweater stretched over broad shoulders. He tipped his desk down. I heard the soft inhales from my friends Carissa and Lesa, felt the eyes of everyone in class watching us. One corner of his lips curved higher, as if he were secretly laughing.
            The stretch of silence became too heavy. “What?”
            “We need to work off your trace,” he said, low enough that only I could hear. Thank God. Trying to explain what a trace was to the general populace was not something I wanted to get into. Oh, you know, just alien residue that rubs off on humans and lights them up like a Christmas tree and becomes a homing signal to an evil alien race. Want some?
            Uh huh.
            I picked up my pen and considered poking him with it. “Yeah, I figured as much.”
            “And I have this really fun idea of how we can do it.”
            I knew what his “fun idea” was. Me. Him. Making out. I smiled, and the green of his eyes heated.  
            “Liking the idea?” he murmured, and his gaze dropped to my lips.
            An unhealthy amount of excitement had my entire body humming, and I reminded myself that his sudden turnaround had more to do with the effect of his bizarre alien mojo on me than it did me as a person. Ever since Daemon healed me after the battle with the Arum, we were connected, and while that seemed to be enough for him to jump into a relationship, it wasn’t for me.
            It wasn’t real.
            I wanted what my parents had. Undying love. Powerful. True. A whacked-out alien bond couldn’t do that for me.
            “Not in this lifetime, buddy,” I said finally.
            “Resistance is futile, Kitten.”
            “So is your charm.”
            “We’ll see.”
            Rolling my eyes, I faced the front of the classroom. Daemon was a total babe, but he was stab-worthy, which, at times, zeroed out the babe part. Not always, though.
            Our ancient trig teacher shuffled in, clutching a thick wad of papers while he waited for the tardy bell.
            Daemon poked me with his pen. Again.
            Squeezing my hands into fists, I debated ignoring him. I knew better. He’d just keep poking me. Turning around, I glared at him. “What, Daemon?”
            He moved as fast as a cobra striking. With a grin that did funny things to my stomach, he glided his fingers along my cheek, plucking a tiny bit of fuzz out of my hair.
            I stared at him.
            “After school…”
            I started to get all kinds of crazy ideas as his grin turned wicked, but I wasn’t playing his game anymore. I rolled my eyes and whipped back around. I would resist my hormones…and the way he got to me like no one else.
            A slight tic of pain throbbed behind my left eye the rest of the morning, which I totally blamed on Daemon.
            By lunch, I felt like someone had sucker punched me in the head. The steady noise of the cafeteria and the mix of disinfectant and burned food made me want to run from the room. 
            “You going to eat that?” Dee Black gestured at my untouched cottage cheese and pineapple.
            Shaking my head, I pushed my tray over, and my stomach roiled as she dug in.
            “You could eat the football team under the table.” Lesa watched Dee with obvious envy sparkling in her dark eyes. I couldn’t blame her. I’d once seen Dee eat an entire package of Oreos in one sitting. “How do you do it?”
            Dee shrugged dainty shoulders. “I guess I have a fast metabolism.”
            “What did you guys do this weekend?” Carissa asked, frowning as she wiped her glasses with the sleeve of her shirt. “I was filling out college applications.”
            “I was making out with Chad all weekend.” Lesa grinned.
            Both girls looked at Dee and me, waiting for us to share. I guessed the whole killing-a-psycho-alien-and-almost-dying thing probably wasn’t something to throw out there.
            “We hung out and watched stupid movies,” Dee answered, giving me a slight smile as she tucked a shiny black curl behind her ear. “It was kind of boring.”
            Lesa snorted. “You guys are always boring.”
            I started to smile, but a warm tingle skated across the nape of my neck. The conversation around me faded and a few seconds later, Daemon dropped into the seat to my left. A plastic cup full of strawberry smoothie—my favorite—was set in front of me. I was more than a little shocked to be receiving any present from Daemon, much less one of my favorite treats. My fingers brushed his as I took the drink, and a jolt of electricity danced along my skin. 
            I yanked my hand back and took a small sip. Delish. Maybe it would make my tummy feel better. And maybe I could get used to this new gift-giving Daemon. Much better than the other douchebag version of him. “Thank you.”
            He smiled in response.
            “Where’re ours?” Lesa quipped.
            Daemon laughed. “I’m only at the service of one person in particular.”
            My cheeks flamed as I scooted my chair over. “You are not servicing me in any way.”
            He leaned in, closing my newly gained distance. “Not yet.”
            “Oh, come on, Daemon. I’m right here.” Dee frowned. “You’re about to make me lose my appetite.”
            “Like that will ever happen,” Lesa retorted with an eye roll.
            Daemon pulled a sub out of his bag. Only he could skip fourth period early to get lunch and not end up in detention. He was just so…special. Every girl at the table, besides his sister, was staring at him. Some of the guys were, too. 
            He offered his sister an oatmeal cookie.
            “Don’t we have plans to make?” Carissa asked, two bright spots coloring her cheeks.
            “Yep,” Dee said, grinning at Lesa. “Big plans.”
            I wiped a hand over my damp, clammy forehead. “What plans?”
            “Dee and I were talking in English about throwing a party the week after next,” Carissa jumped in. “Something—”
            “Huge,” Lesa said.
            “Small,” Carissa corrected, eyes narrowing on her friend. “Just something with a few people.”
            Dee nodded, and her bright green eyes glimmered with excitement. “Our parents are going to be out of town Friday, so it works out perfectly.”
            I glanced at Daemon. He winked. My stupid heart skipped a beat.
            “That’s so cool that your parents are letting you have a party at your house,” Carissa said. “Mine would stroke out if I even suggested something like that.”
            Dee shrugged one shoulder and looked away. “Our parents are pretty cool.”
            I forced my expression blank as a pang hit me in the chest. I truly believed Dee wanted her parents alive more than she wanted anything else in this world. And maybe even Daemon, too. Then he wouldn’t bear the weight of being responsible for his family.
During the time we’d spent together, I’d figured out most of his bad attitude was because of all the stress. And there was his twin brother’s death…
            The party became the topic of discussion at the table for the rest of the lunch period. Which was kind of cool scheduling, since my birthday was the following Saturday. But by Friday, the party would be all over the school. In a town where drinking in a cornfield was the height of excitement on a Friday night, no way was this going to stay a “small” party. Did Dee realize that?
            “You okay with all of this?” I whispered to Daemon.
            He shrugged. “Not like I can stop her.”
            I knew he could if he wanted, which meant he didn’t have a problem with it.
            “Cookie?” he offered, holding a cookie full of chocolate chips.
            Upset tummy or not, there was no way I could refuse that. “Sure.”
            His lips tipped up one side and he leaned toward me, his mouth inches from mine. “Come and get it.”
            Come and get…? Daemon placed half the cookie between those full, totally kissable lips.
            Oh, holy alien babies everywhere…
            My mouth dropped open. Several of the girls at the table made sounds that had me wondering if they were turning into puddles under the table, but I couldn’t bring myself to check out what they really were doing.
            That cookie—those lips—were right there.
            Heat swept over my cheeks. I could feel the eyes of everyone else, and Daemon…dear God, Daemon arched his brows, daring me.
            Dee gagged. “I think I’m going to hurl.”
            Mortified, I wanted to crawl in a hole. What did he think I was going to do? Take the cookie from his mouth like something straight out of an R-rated version of Lady and the Tramp? Heck, I kind of wanted to, and I wasn’t sure what that said about me.
            Daemon reached up and took the cookie. There was a gleam to his eyes, as if he’d just won some battle. “Time’s up, Kitten.”
            I stared at him.
            Breaking the cookie in two, he handed me the larger piece. I snatched it away, half tempted to throw it back in his face, but it was…it was chocolate chip. So I ate it and loved it.
            Taking another sip of my smoothie, I felt unease skitter along my spine like I was being watched. Glancing around the cafeteria, I expected to find Daemon’s alien ex-girlfriend giving me her trademark bitch look, but Ash Thompson was chatting with another boy. Huh. Was he a Luxen? There weren’t many their age, but I doubted Ash in all her supremeness would be smiling at a human boy. My gaze moved away from their table, scanning the rest of the cafeteria.
            Mr. Garrison stood by the double doors to the library, but he was staring at a table full of jocks who were making some intricate designs with their mashed potatoes. No one else even remotely looked in our direction.
            I shook my head, feeling foolish for being weirded out over nothing. It wasn’t like an Arum was going to bum-rush the high school cafeteria. Maybe I was coming down with something. My hands shook a little as I reached for the chain around my neck. The obsidian was cool against my skin, comforting—a herald of safety. So I needed to stop freaking out. Maybe that was why I was lightheaded and dizzy.
            It surely had nothing to do with the boy sitting beside me.
There were several packages waiting for me at the post office and I only barely squealed. They were advanced reader copies from other bloggers passing them along for review. And I was, like, whatever. Sure evidence I was coming down with mad cow disease.
            The trip home was torturous. My hands felt weak. My thoughts were scattered. Gathering my mail close to my chest, I ignored the way the skin on the back of my neck tingled as I climbed the porch steps. And I also ignored six feet and then some of boy leaning against the railing.
            “You didn’t come straight home after school.” Annoyance colored his tone. Like he was my own screwed-up, super-hot version of the Secret Service and I’d managed to evade him.
            I dug out my keys with my free hand. “Obviously I had to go to the post office.” I pushed open the door and dropped the pile on the table inside the foyer. Of course, he was right behind me, not waiting for an invite.
            “Your mail could’ve waited.” Daemon followed me into the kitchen. “What is it? Just books?”
            Grabbing the OJ from the fridge, I sighed. People who didn’t heart books didn’t understand. “Yeah, it was just books.”
            “I know there probably aren’t any Arum around right now, but you can never be too careful, and you have a trace on you that will lead them right to our doorsteps. Right now, that’s more important than your books.”
            Nah, books were more important than the Arum. I poured myself a glass, too tired to get into it with Daemon. We hadn’t mastered the art of polite conversation yet. “Drink?”
            He sighed. “Sure. Milk?”
            I gestured at the fridge. “Help yourself.”
            “You offered. You’re not going to get it for me?”
            “I offered orange juice,” I replied, taking my glass to the table. “You picked milk. And keep it down. My mom’s asleep.”
            Muttering under his breath, he grabbed a glass of milk. As he sat beside me, I realized he was wearing black sweats, which reminded me of the last time he’d been in my house dressed like that. We’d gotten into it. Our argument had turned into a steamy make-out session straight from one of those cheesy romance novels I read. The encounter still kept me up late at night. Not that I’d ever admit it.
            It was so hot, Daemon’s alien mojo had blown most of the lightbulbs in the house and had fried my laptop.  I really missed my laptop and my blog. Mom promised me a new computer for my birthday. Two more weeks…
            I fiddled with my glass, not looking up. “Can I ask you a question?”
            “Depends,” he replied smoothly.
            “Do you…feel anything around me?”
            “Other than what I felt this morning when I saw how good you looked in those jeans?”
            “Daemon.” I sighed, trying to disregard the girl in me that screamed, HE NOTICED ME! “I’m being serious.”
            His long fingers idly traced circles on the wooden table. “The back of my neck gets all warm and tingly. Is that what you’re talking about?”
            I peeked up. A half smile played across his lips. “Yeah, you feel it, too?”
            “Whenever we’re near.”
            “It doesn’t bother you?”
            “Does it bother you?”
            I wasn’t sure what to say. The tingling wasn’t painful or anything, just weird. But what it symbolized did bother me—the damn connection we knew nothing about. Even our hearts were beating the same.
            “It could be a…side effect of the healing.” Daemon watched me over the rim of his glass. I bet he’d look hot with a milk mustache. “Are you feeling well?” he asked.
            Not really. “Why?”
            “You look like crap.”
            Any other time his comment would’ve started a war in this house, but I just set my half-empty glass on the table. “I think I’m coming down with something.”
            His brows furrowed. The concept of being sick was foreign to Daemon. The Luxen didn’t get sick. Like, ever. “What’s wrong with you?”
            “I don’t know. I probably got alien cooties.”
            Daemon snorted. “Doubtful. I can’t afford for you to be sick. We need to get you outside and try to work your trace off. Until then, you’re a—”
            “If you say I’m a weakness, I will hurt you.” Anger pushed down the nausea in my stomach. “I think I proved that I’m not, especially when I led Baruck away from your house and I killed him.” I struggled to keep my voice low. “Just because I’m human doesn’t mean I’m weak.”
            He sat back, brows inching up his forehead. “I was going to say that until then, you’re at risk.”
            “Oh.” My cheeks flushed. Whoops. “Well, then, I’m still not weak.”
            One second Daemon was sitting at the table and the next he was beside me, kneeling down. He had to look up slightly to see my face. “I know you’re not weak. You’ve proven yourself. And what you did this weekend, tapping into our powers? I still can’t figure out how that happened, but you’re not weak. Ever.”
            Whoa. It was hard to stick to my resolve of not caving to the ridiculous notion of us being together when he was actually…nice, and when he stared at me like I was the last piece of chocolate in the whole world.
            Which made me think of that damn chocolate chip cookie in his mouth.
            The side of his lips twitched as if he knew what I was thinking and was fighting a smile. Not that little smirk of his, but a real smile. And suddenly he was standing, towering over me. “Now I need you to prove you’re not weak. Get off your butt and let’s work off some of that trace.”
            I groaned. “Daemon, I’m really not feeling well.”
            “And I’m not saying that to be difficult. I feel like hurling.”
            He folded his muscular arms, stretching his Under Armour shirt across his chest. “It’s not safe for you to be running around when you look like a damn lighthouse. As long as you carry the trace, you can’t do anything. Go anywhere.”
            I pushed up from the table, ignoring the rolling in my stomach. “I’ll get changed.”
            Surprise widened his eyes as he stepped back. “Caving in so easily?”
            “Caving in?” I laughed without feeling. “I just want you out of my face.”
            Daemon chuckled deeply. “Keep telling yourself that, Kitten.”
            “Keep using your ego steroids.”
In a blink of an eye, he was in front of me, blocking my exit. Then he prowled forward, head lowered and eyes full of intent. I backed up until my hands found the edge of the kitchen table.
“What?” I demanded.
Placing his hands on either side of my hips, he bent forward. His breath was warm against my cheek and our eyes locked. He moved a fraction of an inch closer, and his lips brushed my chin. A strangled gasp escaped the back of my throat, and I swayed toward him.
A heartbeat later, Daemon pulled back, chuckling smugly. “Yeah…not my ego, Kitten. Go get ready.”
            Giving him the finger, I left the kitchen and went upstairs. My skin still felt clammy and gross and it had nothing to do with what happened, but I changed into a pair of sweats and a thermal. Running was the last thing I wanted to do. Not like I expected Daemon to care I wasn’t feeling well.
            He only cared about himself and his sister.
            That’s not true, whispered an insidious, annoying voice in my head. But maybe that voice was correct. He had healed me when he could’ve left me to die and I had heard his thoughts, heard him begging me not to leave him.
            Either way, I had to swallow the urge to puke and go for a fun jog. Some sixth sense knew this wasn’t going to end well.

I. AM. DROWNING. IN. MY. TEARS. Now, tell me if that happen to you could you resist. Kah~!
I need this book now! Go pick Shadows and Obsidian before you read Onyx! You won't regret it.
