Pure (Covenant #2),Deity (Covenant #3),Apollyon (Covenant #4),Sentinel (Covenant #5)by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The covenant

BOOKS: Pure (Covenant #2),Deity (Covenant #3),Apollyon (Covenant #4),Sentinel (Covenant #5)

 MY RATING FOR IT: 4 1/stars ( especially the last one )

SYNOPSIS

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals–well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1: Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she’s crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn’t her biggest problem–staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

 MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

I’m going to talk about the first book and ramble a little  for the rest cause in this story i dont want to give to much away and if i go book to book il never finish my ohh’s and Ahhhhh’s  cause this books are Y.A. gems.

This one was the logic continuation of the first book, it strait just where the other one finished and just like that one, it was a magnificent read, I mean it just gets better and better.

“Ever since I’ve met you, I’ve wanted to break every rule.” Aiden turned away, the muscles in his neck tensing. He sighed. “You’ll become the centre of someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth.”

Alex is full on training, and her relationship with Aiden even as it develops it does take some sort of a stall , cause He’s convinced that they are doing something too dangerous and he just won’t put Alex in peril.

Aw, did you just fall?”
“No.” I rolled onto my back, wincing. “I attacked the floor.

“I know what’s happened,” Apollo said after a few seconds. My brows furrowed. “What are you talking about?” He nodded at the board. My gaze dropped to the game and I nearly passed out. He’d spelled SEX and AIDEN with those stupid little squares.”

Seth is his usual self (beautiful and full of himself) but in this book he made ma really like him, I mean, like really like him!

Alex has to go thru some very difficult stuff and Seth is there to pick up the pieces when Aiden is not, which is weird but understandable in a way…

Everything start to unravel more and more about the mysteries of what Alex is and what she’ll become eventually and things get better and better.

“Gods were like possums.

You could go your whole life without seeing one, but once you found one of them, you found the whole freaky family.”

Aidan is not sooooo present in this book, I mean he is but this is more around the development of Seth and Alex’s bond

There’s a big change in scenery and some very unsavory character’s get introduced, but don’t fret cause there are some really great ones too, and a lot of surprises and plot twists (typical of JL’s writing style)

The rest I’m not going to spoil for you because this is a very fun book to read and you need to explore it and get involved in it without spoiler or too many inside info.

But I just need to say that these books just keep getting better and better as the story unfolds.

This book have a lot more action on them that the previous ones and a lot more romance too , so you see that it’s really a great read !!!

the next book are just as amazing and the characters keep developing , there are some twist that left me running for the next book and you need to be aware that there are some free novels too!!! so this is a very complete story…

“We had no idea what waited ahead of us, other than the big, fat unknown, and most likely a big, fat kick in the face. The gravity of that was killing me-killing us

I really don’t want to give mayor spoiler so I WON’T!!!  But you must now that this gets so much better and the twist and turns are great!!!

“What is it with the St. Delphi brothers and their attraction to halfs?”

“He was my strength when I needed him to be, my friend when I needed someone to talk me down, my equal in a world where by law I would always be less than him, and honest to gods, he was the love of my life.”

Please just do yourself a favor and if you like Y.A. and amazing romantic full of action stories, you must read this series ….

I’m still finishing the spin off  book to (yes there’s a spin of !!!!!)  I’m off to read that  one …..

This books are soooooo good , read it …. READ TI NOW !!

Daimon (Covenant 0.5)- Half-Blood (Covenant #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

108603999680718

BOOK:  Daimon (Covenant 0.5)– Half-Blood (Covenant #1)

MY RATING FOR IT: 4 stars

SYNOPSIS

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals–well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1: Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she’s crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn’t her biggest problem–staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

Like a good little reader that I am , I started with the prequel of the first of the Covenant books , cause I have heard that it was a good introduction for everything related to the Covenant world and Alexandria’s world too.

It was a good choice cause it gave me better understanding to where Alex was coming from and what she went through before the start of the first book.

Alex is not a normal girl, she’s not even a human girl, she is a HALF BLOOD (half human half Hematoi) and she feels completely alienated from the human world she now lives in. her mother took her from the covenant 3 year ago and nothing has been the same since. She doesn’t know who or what are they running from and her mom, though a loving mother is very secretive about the reasons why they had to leave the only place they ever knew as home, the place that Alex loved and where she was doing her training.

They live around mortal now and she tries to live like any normal 17 years old  teenage, but after sneaking out one night with her friends and yet another disappointing night ,her world changes completely and she finds herself alone and  on the run from Daimons, the very thing she is supposed to be trained to hunt.

After that first sneak peek, we get to know right away that Alex will be a strong character cause under a lot of difficult circumstances she keeps being resilient, but the Diamons are too much for an alone and untrained girl, BUUUUUUT here comes the loooovley swoon worthy Aiden!!!!

He was Alex’s first crush when she was a teenage girl living at the covenant, he’s a pure though and pure does don’t mingle with Half’s, that’s a big NO NO!!!

“ALEX: “How come you smile when you knock me down?”

AIDEN: “It’s the little things that make me happy.”

I keep forgetting how much i like Jennifer L. Armentrout’s writing, I mean it’s not Obsidian which is one of my Y.A. all-time fav, but the characters where just as engaging as if it was (maybe a little bit less banter)

WELL THERES WAS SOME BANTER !!

Was your mom a gardener?’ I asked innocently.
‘What?’ Ren’s mouth hung open slightly.
‘Because a face like yours belongs planted on the ground.”

“Whatever! Go save a dolphin or something!”

He whirled around. “It’s a whale, Alex, a whale! That’s what I’m interested in saving.”

I threw up my arms. “What’s wrong with saving dolphins?”

I’m super in love with Aiden and Alex sometimes made feel like I wanted to hit he, but just sometimes
I CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT IS GOING TO GO DOWN WITH SETH , THAT LOOKS COMPLETLY PROMISISNG !!!

“I don’t want to know about love.’

‘But you should, my child. You need to know about love. The things people will do for love. All truths come down to love, do they not? One way or another, they do. See, there is a difference between love and need. Sometimes, what you feel is immediate and without rhyme or reason.’ She sat up a little straighter. ‘Two people see each across a room or their skin brushes. Their souls recognize the person as their own. It doesn’t need time to figure it. The soul always knows… whether it’s right or wrong.”

ohhhh and the best friend was a sweetheart !!

I just loved this series , I’m defo going to keep at it cause I’m a bit OCD and can’t stand not to finish a series once I started it …
another great book by a great author …

Opal- Origin and Opposition (Lux #3-4-5)by Jennifer L. Armentrout

lux 3,4 y5

BOOK: Opposition (Lux #5)by Jennifer L. Armentrout

MY RATING: 4 1/2 Stars

SYNOPSIS

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can’t believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

I decide to do one review for book 3-4 and 5 , because it would get to repetitive to do one for each.

In book 3 we had Katy who is in an actual relationship with Daemons, they are very quite together , an d the witty banter is going strong , so is the steam factor , wich is still pretty mild but it’s getting warmer by the minute.

A slow, wry smile teased Daemon’s lips. “Simmer down, Kitten, before I have to get you a ball of yarn to play with.
Annoyance flared deep inside me. “Don’t start with me, jerk-face.

There are very sweet scenes in this book, because Daemon in wooing Katy…

He…he kisses like he’s dying of thirst, and I’m water.” I smacked my hands over my hot face. “I can’t believe I just said that out loud.” Lesa giggled. “Sounds like one of those romance books you read.” “It does.” I started giggling. “But, oh Lordie Lord, it’s true. I’m like a puddle of mush when he kisses me. It’s embarrassing. I’m so, like, ‘Thank you, can I have another?’ Sad.”

Dee is not the same anymore , but she is trying to get better ,and Katy is struggling with this issue.

Dawson is home but he’s very distant , he wants to get Bethany back , but Daemon knows that Daedalus is gunning for him and Katy’s powers.

In this  book there’s Blake again he appears and tries to convince everyone to help him get his Luxen friend, and all hell breaks loose…..

In the 4th Book “ORIGIN”, Katy got Taken by Daedalus  in Mount after Blake betrayed them,. She is in a new world alone and very scared, the things that they made her do are wrong in so many levels.

Daemon is going Crazy trying to get to Katy , he doesn’t care about anything but getting to where she is , and he will not rest untill he is with her and can see that she’s is safe again.

“Did you think you could stop me? I’ll burn the world down to save her.”

There’s only one thing I want.”

“And that is?”
“I want to see Kat.”
Nancy’s smile didn’t fade. “And what are you willing to do to accomplish that?”
“Anything,” I said without hesitation, and I meant it. “I will do anything, but I want to see Kat first and I want to see her now.”

He sacrifices his freedom to be with her, they get together under very stern circumstances , but the sarcasm is present as ever!!

I’ve been waiting a long time to run tests on someone like you, ” he said to Daemon, voice high-pitched.
Daemon arched a brow. “Another fanboy. I have them everywhere.”
I muttered, “Only you would see that as a good thing.”

“He hasn’t even eaten at Olive Garden, so I doubt he’s a connoisseur of hotels.” – Kat
“No Olive Garden? Man, we’ve got to get that boy some endless breadsticks and salad. Travesty.” – Daemon”

“Hey kitten, I could always give you a teaser. You bookish people love teasers, don’t you?”

They actually make a plan to scape , but many things happen , Blake dies by Katy’s hand ( wich kinds of screwed with her mind) and many character are introduced ..especially Archer one of the Origins tha Daedalus creted !! He was a great character to meet , and hell’ be very important in this book so is luc…

lux

There’s a lot more action , and City of Las Vegas is very important in the story…..

Then we Jump to book 5 “OPOSSITION” the last book of the Saga , wich starts where Origins ends, with the arrival of the Luxen’s.

“Apparently, there was even a meme created already. The incredibly photogenic glowing-alien meme.”

After the Luxen arrived on earth the war for survival begins, Andrew is dead, Ash is dead , Mathew betrayed them and after the Vegas disaster they need to stay low.

Everything is very messed up , but the only thing that is certain is the love that Daemon has for Katy and vice versa, their love is stronger than anything , is it not?

But something Happens and Daemon , Dee and Dawson go to the Luxen leaving the other wondering about their loyalty.
eventually they get reunited but Damon is very strange towards Katy so she thinks they got to him , but their love is what keep them away from his head.

“Get out of my head.” “I can’t help it,” Archer replied from where he sat on the couch. “You’re broadcasting your thoughts so damn loudly I feel like I need to go sit in the corner and start rocking, whispering Daemon’s name over and over again.”

There are Origins ans Luxen working together, and there’s this bitchy character that wants in to Daemon’s pant’s

“Yes,” she purred. “I really think you can do better. Lots better.” As she spoke, she trailed a red-painted finger down the center of his chest, over his abdomen, heading straight for the button on his jeans. And oh, hell to the no. “Get your hands off him.” Sadi’s head snapped in my direction. “Excuse me?” “I don’t think I stuttered.”

But eventually Daemond makes Katy understand the delicate situations there in…

“ Kat.” He uttered my name like it was some kind of prayer, and then he pressed a kiss against the skin behind my ear. “I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I … burned down an entire city to keep you safe. I’ve killed for you. Did you think I’d forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world— in any world— would be stronger than my love for you?”

“Daemon was okay. He was himself, and dammit, together we could face anything. We would because we had to.” 

After everything that happens they must convince an old enemy to help them with the Luxen situation, wich is very difficult to do.Ireally dont want to say anymore , because i have said too much of the plot already and people should enjoy it without spoilers.

This book did not disappoint , it was full of action , drama , and so much swoon and the steamyness  that im having a hard time letting go. I laugh so much with this series, Katy was so hilarious, and Daemons so charming and conceded,

im really going to miss them, if you havent read this one you should do it !!! it’s amazingly god, they are unforgettable.

Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

BOOK: Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

MY RATING4 OUT 5 STARS

SYNOPSIS.

Book Two of the bestselling Lux series Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…
Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

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 there’s this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that’s possible. Against all common sense, I’m falling for Daemon. Hard.
But then everything changes…
I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he 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…

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT 

I can honestly say that I kind of love this series… it’s getting better by the chapter and I’m reading so fast that my fingers are sore from the movement….

Oh …Daemon!! He is so much better in this book , the sarcasm it’s still there, but he is very sweet this time around , super protective of Katy and very funny at times.

“I always liked you. From the moment you first flipped me off.”

In this book Katy is fearful that the feelings that Daemon is professing are nothing more than the connection that they shared after he healed her, sooooo,  Daemons has to convincer her that the feelings are real, and there is where things get interesting

Humping my leg like a dog in heat every time I’m around you doesn’t prove you like me Daemon.”
“Actually, that’s exactly how I show people I like them.”

Katy is rocking my world!!! I am loving her funny thoughts and her love for Daemon

and Katy is hilarious and snarky as always

“Holy monkey balls that did not just happen.”

“What are you doing? Hands off, mofo.”

But there’s a lot of tender moment and the hotness level is slowly rising…yay!

And there’s this new boy Blake in town who is interested in Katy..

I’m really loving this Lux series and I can’t wait to start the third one because is bound to get so much better yet , and I bet the romance will get steamier , the hotness it’s pretty mild in these one but still it starting to get good.
all and all ,such a good book !!

Why did it took me so long? … “OBSIDIAN” by Jennifer L. Armentrout ( Lux #1)

Book: “OBSIDIAN” by Jennifer L. Armentrout ( Lux #1)

My Rating: 4 of 5  great stars!!

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

My Thoughts about it 

After loosing her father ,Katy a girl from Florida moves with her mother to a small town in West Virginia. Her mother pushes her to try to make some new friends , so she goes to the neighbours to ask for directions to the nearest store

there she meet the lovely  Dee and the not so lovely but very swoon worthy, tall , dark , and very very handsome Daemon Black, who is very keen on keeping  Katy away from his sister.

After a conversation gone wrong she realizes he’s as beautiful as he is arrogant and full of himself

“He was probably the hottest guy I’d ever seen in real life, and he was a total douche. Go figure.”

After Katy suffers a terrible attack and Daemon comes to her rescue , she will find out what is the reason for his attitude and nothing will ever be the same for her.

I  must say that I really like this one , even do it´s a lot more wholesome than my usual reads.

it was very fun , it got me hooked right away and the characters where entertaining to read … I love love love Daemon     (he was kind of a douche at first and in that horrible the cafeteria scene I feel so bad for Katy) I JUST WANTED TO PUNCH HIM … but it gets better.

He is super mega HOT… if i had a neighbour like that, i would totally stalk him… like really…
anyway, Kat is pretty great, she is very funny , sarcastic and witty . She likes Daemon A LOT but she does not let him walk all over her wich was what made me love her … the story is very entertaining , it was super fun for me to read, the time just flew by and I cant wait to start on the second book

At first I thought these would be  like an alien version of Twilight , wich kind of put me of it for a while , but it’s not .

I very much recommend it it´s an easy fun read and it will make time fly by.

At least it did for me …
