    Trailer Reveal: Opal (Lux #3)

    I am so excited that I was in the right place at the right time so that I could be a part of the amazing trailer reveal for Jennifer L. Armentrout’s OPAL, the third book in her LUX series.

    This awesome trailer was created by VLC Photo Productions and I’m so happy to be able to share it here on the blog tonight.

    I could go on and on… I’m a huge fan of book trailers… but I’ll just let the trailer speak for itself.

    The OPAL Book Trailer


    Awesome, right? It makes me that much more anxious to get my copy of OPAL next month. Which is a long, long, long, long, long ways away. I think I’m going through some major Daemon Black withdrawal right about now.

    Anyway…

    If you haven’t heard about this series, or the upcoming release for OPAL, check out the description below. And if for some reason you haven’t yet “met” the author, Jennifer Armentrout, there’s a pic and a few places where you can find her online.

    Official Opal Book Trailer

    No one is like Daemon Black.

    When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well… There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

    But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

    After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different… And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

    Together we’re stronger… and they know it.

    Cover Reveal: Opal

    Opal (Lux #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

    Coming December 11, 2012

    ***

    I am such a huge fan of this series, the author and Daemon Black. So when I was invited by Entangled Publishing to be a part of this cover reveal I had to drop everything to get this post ready. Because there was no way that I was going to miss being able to share this cover on the blog.

    ***

    My Thoughts

    I love how well this cover fits in with the rest of the series yet is just a bit different, not only with the clarity of the image, but the placement of the book title. I also love that it doesn’t contain all the additional text on its face, allowing the image to take center stage.

    This tagline has me the most intrigued of them all. It begs the question – What exactly is it that they are going to have to risk?

    And I absolutely love the color. And I love the tone. It’s still dark like the covers for OBSIDIAN and ONYX, but there is a brightness to it that I like, similar to the cover for SHADOWS, which brings a nice balance to the series when you look at all four covers together.

    I also like that on this cover Katy has a sweet, almost vulnerable look to her, versus the previous cover where she had a harder edge. Of course I wish Daemon Black was facing forward so I could see both of his eyes, but he looks pretty amazing, so I’m not going to complain too much.

    Onyx Blog Tour: Daemon Black Character Interview + Giveaway

    I was so unbelievably excited when I was invited to be a part of the ONYX Blog Tour. I am such a huge fan of author Jennifer L. Armentrout. Her writing is so very addictive. And her Lux series is no exception. And I don’t think there is a character who is quite as wickedly charming, but not wicked, as Daemon Black. Well, maybe he’s just a little bit wicked….

    If for some reason you haven’t yet “met” Jennifer on Twitter or on her blog, she is super nice and super awesome. And here’s just a little bit about her and a few places where you can find her.

    About the Book

    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.

    For my stop on the tour I not only got to post my review, but I got a chance to interview Daemon Black. And the publisher offered up a paperback set of  OBSIDIAN and ONYX for giveaway (US), though I added in a couple print copies of ONYX because I just had to share. It’s that awesome.

    And for those of you who hadn’t stopped by earlier in the year for the 30 Days of Daemon Tour, I had the great pleasure of having Daemon Black on the blog for that event. My interview is HERE and the post includes information about OBSIDIAN and the novella about Daemon’s brother Dawson, SHADOWS.

    Anyway… I’m sure you’re wondering what Daemon has to stay this time….

    Hi Daemon! Welcome back to the blog. It’s been a few months but I couldn’t resist having you stop back for a visit. Especially now that I’ve read ONYX and am just a little bit more curious/infatuated/obsessed with you. And because I know even more about you than I did when I first got the chance to ask you just a few questions.

    “Of course you’re curious/infatuated/obsessed with me. It’s okay. I’m used to it.”

    [Fiktshun: Hmmm… that ego is still firmly in place….]

    The last time you visited you said that you were, and I quote, “pretty damn awesome.” Since your last visit, after everything that’s happened between you and Katy and everything you had to go through in ONYX would you say that you’re a bit more humble? Or are you just as confident as you were before? Are you, in fact, the same Daemon Black we’ve gotten to know and love or are you a changed Luxen?

    “I stand by my initial statement: I am still pretty damn awesome. And I’m the same guy. You just see more sides of me.”

    [Fiktshun: I did happen to enjoy those other sides. A LOT….]

    You and Katy made a connection, one that is seemingly unbreakable. How do you feel being bonded to Katy? Especially when she doesn’t seem to be quite so enthusiastic about it. And what kinds of things have you been doing to change her mind?

    “Bonded is such a strange word, but it’s not bad. Kat isn’t a big fan of it, but then again, she’s human, so these kinds of things freak her out. And I have some things I’m doing to help change her mind.”

    [Fiktshun: Well, you definitely have a connection and I like the idea of you and Katy having this bond. And yes, Daemon, you have been doing some things to change her mind. :)]

    Katy believes that what she feels for you isn’t real, that it’s a product of your connection. Do you feel the same way? Would you like her even if you weren’t connected?

    “I think I’ve told her a billion times how I really feel. It’s up to her to believe it.”

    [Fiktshun: Maybe with a little bit more of the showing versus telling and she’ll be convinced.]

    What is it with you, Katy and technology? You blew up a laptop, and there may have been another instance where a computer got overheated…. If your chemistry sizzles, literally, why not stay far, far away from costly electronic devices?

    “The chemistry between us is just that damn good. And it’s kind of hard to stay away from electronic devices. They are everywhere.”

    [Fiktshun: They’re not everywhere. Not by the lake…. If they were you might have destroyed hundreds of laptops.]

    What do you think about Katy’s book boyfriends? I believe she mentioned a certain Reaper named Tod she was quite fond of, and she also hinted at a reincarnated soul named Alden. How do you like the fact that Katy gets lost in these worlds with these other boys?

    “Well, see… the only guys that can compete with me are fictional, so I’m okay with that.”

    [Fiktshun: Ah, but you did have just a little bit of competition if I do recall correctly. And not from any book Katy was reading….]

    Speaking of other boys, there’s a new boy in town. One who seems to want to spend quite a bit of time with Katy. And one that Katy seems to want to spend a bit of time with. One whose name you just can’t seem to get quite right. Is this a jealous Daemon we’re seeing? What do you think about all the time Katy is spending with him? And what exactly is it you want to do to him when you seem them together?

    “I have no idea who you’re talking about.  Me jealous of Bob? Wait. What is his name? Biff? Bart? Bobo Baggins? Whatever.”

    [Fiktshun: Selective memory Daemon? And hahaha “Bobo Baggins” hahaha! Oh you always make me smile Daemon Black.]

    Whether you or she wants to admit it or not, you and Katy seem to be getting closer. If it came down to a choice between your family or her, who would you choose to protect? Okay, that may be an unfair question. So, how about, who would you choose to protect first and why?

    “That is an unfair question. But I will never have to choose between them. I’d never let that situation happen.”

    [Fiktshun: I really hope that’s true. I rely on you to keep that girl safe. And after what happened… well… let’s just say I really hope that’s true.]

    Katy is a book blogger. But you know this. As you’ve admitted to stalking her blog on occasion. How often do you visit her blog? And what’s your favorite post, feature or review you’ve read (or watched) on her blog?

    “I like to keep up on her posts, which by the way she’s been slacking on. I like her IMM.”

    [Fiktshun: And the fact that she’s slacking in no way has to do with you? I somehow think it might. Just a little. And yes, I know just how much you like her IMM. And I think she’ll get a lot more site traffic on those IMMs going forward.]

    If you had it all to do over again, would you still be as mean to Katy as you were when you first met? And what about later? The cafeteria incident affected her pretty deeply. Would you change what you said and did if you had the chance?

    “No. Yeah, call me a jerk or whatever, but I never wanted her to be a part of any of this. She almost died because of being too close to us. So no, I wouldn’t change a damn thing. Okay. Well, maybe I would’ve softened it a bit.”

    [Fiktshun: I wouldn’t call you a jerk exactly for that, but it was pretty harsh. You successfully, for a very short time, pushed her away. As you can see that didn’t work out so well. But I’m glad to hear you’d have done things just a little bit differently.]

    Katy is fierce and determined. Stubborn even. Much like you in that respect. Why, then, do you feel the need to be so protective of her? Do you not think she’s capable of taking care of herself?

    “She is very strong and brave, but being strong and brave isn’t always going to keep you alive. There are things in my world that would eat her as a snack. I can’t let that happen.”

    [Fiktshun: Things like you? Sometimes you look like you might want to have Katy for a snack. Just sayin’.]

    I don’t want to reveal too much, but there may have been a certain situation that got Katy in trouble with her mom. Was it purely accidental or did you do what you did on purpose?

    A sly look creeps onto his face. “What do you think?”

    [Fiktshun: Oh I definitely have my opinions on that one. And you are rather naughty aren’t you?]

    What is your very favorite thing about Katy? And don’t say her sock mittens. By the way, what is your fascination with those things anyway?

    “It’s not like I’m fascinated. I just don’t get them. They’re mittens for the feet! Who needs mittens for your feet?” He shakes his head. “Anyway, I love how she isn’t easy—she’s a challenge. And she’s strong.”

    [Fiktshun: When its cold, mittens for the feet are a good thing. Not everyone can withstand the cold quite like you. Yes, Katy is definitely strong. One of her great qualities. And for the record I’m so glad you didn’t call Katy easy.]

    What is your very most favorite moment that you spent with Katy? Were there any favorite Katy moments that didn’t involve the destruction of poor, defenseless computers?

    “My favorite moment was spending her birthday with her.” He nods. “Yeah, that was really a good time.  Second best moment was Thanksgiving.”

    [Fiktshun: Oh, both those moments were pretty amazing. Much like yourself. I couldn’t agree more. Loved those moments.]

    What do you do, exactly, when you’re not pestering Katy at school, at her home or watching her from afar?

    “I do not watch her from afar. I watch her from up close and personal.”  He pauses. “I like watching ghost hunting shows, but when I’m not with Kat or Dee, I’m out patrolling.”

    [Fiktshun: Ah but you do tend to keep an eye on her from a distance. When you’re up close and personal it always seems that there’s more than just your “eye” that is on her….]

    Just one more question… What’s with the poking? I know you like to get under Katy’s skin – again literally – but why poking? There are so many ways you can irk her, why decide to poke?

    “You know, my very first response to this was completely inappropriate. It had to do with poking. Just thought I’d share that.” He grins. “I don’t know. It annoys Kat. And she’s cute when she’s annoyed.”

    [Fiktshun: Hey, I’m a grown girl, I’d love to know what your very first response to this question was. *Pouts.* And oooh, I get a Daemon Black grin! *Blushes.*]

    Q. If you had to list your three best features or attributes what would they be and why?

    Only three? Seriously? Every part of me is my best attribute.

    Q. If you could be human for a day, would you?

    Uh, no. Humans can be way too fragile. They break easily.

    Q. If you could read minds, would you read Katy’s or would you allow her thoughts to be hers alone?

    I don’t need to read her mind to know what she’s thinking. She’s like an open book. Get it? Book? Kitten? Ah, I make myself laugh.

    Q. If you could use your powers to impersonate someone for a day, who would it be and why?

    I don’t have a need to impersonate anyone for a second let alone a day.

    Q. Are you able to look at a bowl of spaghetti without thinking of the cafeteria incident?

    Actually, when I see a bowl of spaghetti now, I have to smile.

    [Fiktshun: As far as attributes I’ll have to take you on your word. We haven’t had the opportunity to see all of your… attributes… just yet. And I’m so glad that you wouldn’t try to read Katy’s mind. She is an open book, but there may have been certain things you didn’t know until much, much later. Things about Bobo…. And haha, glad to see you can make yourself laugh, Daemon. And really, you’ve never had to impersonate someone before? Never? I’ll never look at spaghetti the same again either. To take a name from an old album, I now refer to it as “The Spaghetti Incident.”]

    Once again, thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy, busy schedule – patrolling, keeping everyone you care about safe, poking Kitten – to answer all my questions. I’m so glad your visit to the blog here today was just a bit longer than your last one.

    You are always welcome to stop by. Though I’m sure you’d much rather be a guest on Katy’s blog rather than having to do the interview circuit on everyone else’s. Though I’m sure she would ask those tougher questions.

    Now I just have to get a certain author to stop by, someone who knows you way better than anyone else….

    Title: OBSIDIAN

    Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

    Publisher: Entangled Teen

    Pages: 335 (2nd edition)

    Release date: May 8, 2012

    Goodreads description:

    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.

    Obsidian was a quick and sexy read. Fast-paced and with a fresh new twist: Aliens. Who knew aliens could be so frustrating and sexy, even friendly if they want to be?

    One of the things I really liked about this book was the writing. I was hooked to every page and when I had to put it down I couldn’t stop thinking about it and the feeling that I wanted to go back and read some more. Pretty entertaining, that is very hard to find in my opinion.

    I enjoyed all the action scenes, especially because they weren’t too close to one other so I was really surprised with each one of them. The author did a great job with the background and details, without losing the tension and edgy feeling.

    Of course we can’t forget about infuriating Daemon Black. He is one sexy alien, let me tell you, and I couldn’t help but fall for him even with his hot and cold attitude. I only wish his reasons for been such a jerk were justified sooner in the book; that would have helped me understand him better and have more empathy for him. But despite that, I found myself enjoying Katy and Daemon and their whole dynamic, laughing at his teasing and her snarky responses. Katy doesn’t put up with Daemon’s attitude and I totally applaud that, especially how everything ends with them.

    I love the glimpses of the nice, friendly and caring Daemon. I hope we get to see more of that in book two.

    The sexual tension between them was overpowering, in a good way, because it was enjoyable and very seductive. You can totally tell they want each other but there are other circumstances that keep them apart, besides their mutual dislike. They are drawn to each other and their chemistry is undeniable. But all that waiting and tension is rewarded with this one hot scene, trust me the wait is worth it.

    The secondary characters are one of my favorite parts of this book. They are not just filler; they play an important part in each and every different scene. But Dee was my favorite character, she is a ball of sunshine, so cute and lovable and her relationship with Katy was so balanced. I love that!

    I love the challenge at the end of the book, I was grinning, imagining all the possibilities that it can lead to. I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next with Katy and Daemon. Dying to know the new developments in the most anticipated sequel, Onyx.

    30 Days of Daemon Tour: Character Interview Daemon Black

    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.

    Find her: TWITTER, FACEBOOKWEBSITE, BLOG, GOODREADS

    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.

    Fiktshun: Oooooooooooh.

    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

    About Shadows

    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.

    About Onyx

    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.
