For seventeen-year-old Aurora Lahey, survival is a lifestyle.

DEMONIC DESTINY
Aurora has the crappiest superpower on the planet. And it’s just unleashed a hit squad from hell. Demons are on the hunt, salivating to carve her carcass into confetti.

CHARISMATIC KILLERS
The Hex Boys–mysterious, hunky, and notorious for their trails of destruction–have the answers Aurora needs to survive. But their overload of deadly secrets and suspicious motives makes trusting them a potentially fatal move.

LETHAL ALLIES
The battle to save her family, herself, and stop demonic domination may cost Aurora everything worth living for, and force her to reveal her own dark secrets. But no worries. She needs the Hex Boys to pull this off, and, chances are, teaming up with these guys will get her killed anyway.

 

 

My Review

I was really excited to read Demons at Deadnight! How nice is the book cover? It’s been a while since I’ve read a YA book and the story was pretty unique so I had high hopes. I wasn’t disappointed. The story follows Aurora, a girl that can see demons and makes friends with 6 delicious demon hunters: Ayden, Blake, Jayden, Logan, Matthias and Tristan… Or also known as, The Hex Boys.

Review: Fighting Destiny by Amelia Hutchins

Fighting DestinyRating: 4stars

Series: The Fae Chronicles Book 1

Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae – beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?

Welcome to my world.

What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike.

Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae…every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment.

My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface – not even me.

This is the first ‘adult fiction’ book (and faerie for that matter) I’ve ever read so I was pretty excited to start it and didn’t really know what to expect, especially since it’s fantasy erotica. It has a lot – and I mean a lot – of sexual content, so it isn’t for younger readers. ^^’ I found the book on Goodreads after looking for more adult fantasy (I’ve really gotten bored of YA) and came across this. It has really high ratings and the comments/reviews were full of praise, so I decided to give it a go! And I’m glad I did! 😀 Alright, it maybe wasn’t always the best writing and some descriptions were repetitive, and the story didn’t always flow smoothly… But I really enjoyed it! After I hit that half-way point I couldn’t stop. I finished it in a few hours and have already started on the second book!

She’s captured the hearts of Heaven and Hell…

Betrayed by her true love, Olivia cannot let go of the angel her mind doesn’t remember, and her heart refuses to forget. In an attempt to reclaim her broken life, she is determined to unearth her past, but some secrets are better left buried.

To save her life, he sacrificed everything. Universal Law was broken when Liam violated Olivia’s free will. His guardianship has been revoked, and the pain of letting her go is nothing compared to the torture of enduring their shattered bond. He can no longer sense her, no longer feel her, and the enemy he risked it all to save her from, now has free reign to claim her for his own. To get her back, Liam must turn away from all he is, all he was, for the one thing he may have already lost forever—Olivia’s love.

Haden will stop at nothing to possess Immanuel’s Stone, and locked away in Olivia’s memories is the key he needs to find it. But in his quest for vengeance, he never expected to lose his heart to the enchanting green-eyed beauty. Forced to choose between love and revenge, Haden becomes captivated by a woman who will never be his…or will she?

I’ve been so busy over the last couple of weeks with uni that I haven’t had any time to write or respond to any comments! I’ve finally got a bit of free time to write something, get back to people and catch up on some reading, but not as much as I’d like to! 🙂

I’m *so* happy that I continued to read the Redemption series and I can’t wait for the fourth and final instalment to come out later this year! I also wrote a review for Book 1 in the series “Until Darkness Comes” a few weeks ago that you can check out. In the second and third books, the story flows way smoother and is generally is strung much better than the first book – such an improvement! This review contains spoilers…

Review: Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Image

Rating: 4.5stars
Type: Science Fiction
Series: Lux #1
Author | Amazon | Goodreads

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.

I know what you’re thinking… Aliens? Seriously? Well yes, seriously. I finished reading this book the same night that I started it – I honestly could not put it down. It’s totally different from all the other paranormal books that I’ve read lately, and Jennifer tells her story at the kind of pace that I love. Normally, I find myself getting bored if there’s too much unnecessary description, droning on endlessly (the lake is beautiful – we get it), but I always found myself getting all the information I needed without having to read a never-ending amount of pages to figure out what happened in a short 5 minute scene. Don’t get me wrong, I love a beautiful description as much as the next girl, but you can’t keep all the juicy details away for that long!
