When I first heard that there was going to be a thirty day tour that was all about Daemon I could not stop grinning. I mean, it’s Daemon Black. And thirty days of him. What could be more awesome?
Well, the fact that there would be multiple stops each day. Yep. That’s definitely more awesome. I think it blew my mind. And I’m not too sure I’ve recovered….
And the fact that I got to interview Daemon? Well… it was a dream come true. Didn’t help much in that whole recovering from the blown mind situation. But, at least I was left with just enough brain cells to post the interview. Anyway….
For those of you who haven’t read Obsidian, I thought I’d give you a chance to check out the description before hearing what Daemon has to say in his interview. And if you haven’t heard about the amazing author of this series, Jennifer L. Armentrout, there’s just a little bit about her too.
But I’m pretty sure you already know about JLA. It’s why you’re here reading all about Daemon.
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.
Jennifer lives in Martinsburg, West Virginia. All the rumors you’ve heard about her state aren’t true. When she’s not hard at work writing. she spends her time reading, working out, watching really bad zombie movies, pretending to write, and hanging out with her husband and her Jack Russel Loki.
Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class, where she spent most of her time writing short stories….which explains her dismal grades in math. Jennifer writes young adult paranormal, science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary romance. She also writes adult romance under the name J. Lynn.
Hi Daemon, thank you so much for stopping by the blog today to answer just a few questions.
Not to boost your ego, but you have quite a few fans who are desperate to know everything you are willing to share about yourself – your likes, dislikes, hopes, dreams, just what kind of workout regimen you have to make yourself look as good as you do shirtless….
Anyway… before I begin bombarding you with questions, would you be so kind as to tell readers of the blog who may not have met you already just a little bit about yourself, in ten words or less?
I can sum it up in four words: I’m pretty damn awesome.
Fiktshun: Ego much? Yes. But it’s most definitely true. You’re so freaking awesome.
From the moment you met Katy it seemed like there was a feeling of hatred and disgust toward her. Was this specific to her or was it your overall dislike for humans? Or did you really feel something else and were only feigning your disinterest?
I was never disgusted by her. I just didn’t want her or any human living so close to us and buddying up with my sister. I’m kind of an equal opportunity hater when it comes to most humans. Of course, Kat has a way of wiggling past that.
Fiktshun: Yes she does. She is quite determined when she wants to be, isn’t she?
And from the moment we met you it seemed as if you were often shirtless. Did you do this on purpose to keep Katy off balance or do you just really enjoy being shirtless?
Clothing can be so restrictive.
You didn’t want to have anything to do with Katy and yet it was almost as if you couldn’t stay away. Why did you keep getting involved in her life? Was it just to annoy Katy or was there some other reason?
I really don’t think I had a choice. Okay. Well, part of my involvement was to annoy Kat. I like it when she gets all feisty, but after a few incidents, we no longer had a choice. She was stuck with me.
Fiktshun: Yes you are stuck together. And I’ll just bet she loves and hates it in equal parts. *GRIN.*
Every chance you get it appears as if you are trying to get under Katy’s skin. You call her names like Kittycat and Kitten, which bother her to no end. Do you enjoy antagonizing Katy? Do you plan to keep doing it?
I enjoy doing a lot of things that involve Kat, not limited to making up annoying nicknames or teasing her.
Fiktshun: So I’ve read. *BIG GRIN.*
Some would say the two of you have great chemistry. Others might say the two of you together are toxic. What do you think?
Depends on the day.
Fiktshun: That’s true, though I’m thinking it’s even more frequent than that!
Katy was very hyper aware of every time you touched her. Did you know this? Did you do this on purpose? And did you feel the same way when she touched you?
I’m pretty sure anyone would be hyper aware of me touching them, don’t you think?
Fiktshun: …. …. Okay, that was me just mentally striking my initial response before this interview takes a totally different turn for this interviewer. 🙂 Let’s just say my answer involved having you put that theory to the test.
If you had to describe Katy to someone who’d never met her, how would you describe her?
Kitten. That would be all I would say.
Fiktshun: Somehow I don’t think she’d like that very much, Daemon. Not very much at all.
If Katy were to decide that she’s had enough of your games and your species and decided to date someone more like her, what would you do?
Like she would decide to date something other than me.
Fiktshun: Ahem, she just might. Even if it were just to get back at you. There are a couple more stories – at least – in which Kat (or Jennifer) might think some competition would fun.
And now for a few “Favorites” and “This or That” questions….
Favorite movie? Same as Dawson’s: Cocoon.
Favorite thing to eat? I pretty much just like food in general.
Favorite time of year? Summer.
Favorite thing about Earth? Neighbors?
Favorite thing about not being human? Everything?
Favorite moment with Katy? The lake.
Favorite nickname you have for Katy? Kitten.
Shirts on or shirtless? Shirtless.
Tormenting Katy or kissing Katy? That’s a given.
Vain or humble? Me? Humble as pie. Ha.
Fiktshun: Neighbors, huh. Maybe one neighbor in particular, Daemon? And the lake was my favorite moment of yours with Katy, too. Although… the laptop scene was pretty H.O.T. And yes, Daemon, you are absolutely humble as pie….
This has been so much fun. For me. As you can imagine. Being so humble and all…. Anyway, thank you so much for stopping by.
Thank you for having me.
I wish you could stay a lot longer…. *SIGH.* But I know you have another stop on the tour today and quite a few ahead of you. I wouldn’t want to be greedy and keep you all to myself. (Yes, I would.)
You are always welcome to stop back, shirts are definitely optional, to talk some more about you, about Kat or just what your plans are for the not so distant future.

Other Books in the Series
The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane.
Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.
Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in.
Captivated. Lured. Loved.
Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence…and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.
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.
