[VS Battle Saturday] Daemon Black VS Aiden St. Delphi

saturday's vs battle icon

So, I was discussing about these two amazing gentlemen with Raven [Dreamy Addictions]. Raven’s favorite is Deamon and mine is Aiden. So, I thought ‘hey, let’s see what other bloggers think about them’, even though I already know who’s your favorite! It’s obvious^^ . I am sure you all know both of them and if you don’t then you have to know about them. Let’s see…

Daemon Black – Lux by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I think we all know Pepe Toth, who’s featuring in every Lux cover (and a lot more book covers but that’s not our point here.) Pepe is linked to Daemon in my mind. When I was reading the book, all I could imagine as Daemon was Pepe. Am I the only one?

Species: Alien

Age: 18

Eye Color: Green

Hair Color: Black

Height:  Around 6ft. 3

Physical Description

Daemon physically is described to be beautiful or handsome and to have dark hair and emerald green eyes with dark eyelashes that complimented his naturally tanned skin. It is mentioned in Obsidian that he walks around without a shirt on most of the time, even in the winter, showing off a well muscled and defined chest.

Personality

When you first meet Daemon, he came off as arrogant. But as the story progressed, the arrogance turns out to be a mask, hiding his true thoughts, reactions and personality. He is often kind, thoughtful and incredibly sweet and he always wants to please his sister even if it means doing something he doesn’t want to. His outer demeanor usually consists of him making snarky and sarcastic comments, especially towards those he has no interest in being acquainted with. Daemon is protective and possessive; especially towards his family. He would do anything and everything to protect those he loves. Though he wouldn’t normally do it, he would even beg if it meant saving a loved one’s life (as seen in Opposition when he begged for Katy’s life). As for his possessiveness, he is possessive over Katy.

Quotes

“I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I married you and 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 to Katy, Opposition

VS

Aiden St. Delphi – Covenant by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Beautiful grey eyes, dark hair and kissable lips. Yup, that’s how Aiden is supposed to look like.

Species: Pure Blood Hematoi

Occupancy: Sentinel

Age: 21

Eye Color: Grey

Hair Color: Dark Brown

Height: 6ft. 5

Physical Description

Aiden has dark wavy hair that always falls in his face and quicksilver grey eyes, and is believed to be around 6″5. It is also stated that he is very attractive.

Personality

Aiden is very overptrotective and gets jealous often (when he sees Alexandria Andros with Seth ) but he keeps his feelings hidden most of the time. He is very caring and romantic and great in combat. He loves his family and he is willing to protect his brother Deacon and Alexandria no matter what. He is a Sentinel, and goes out to see the world often, but mortals still confuse him. Aiden is very proper and a big rule-follower, he is respectful and knows his place. Aiden is strong and opinionated, rational and well educated. He knows ancient Greek, and lots of other things. He is very intelligent. His brother Deacon says that he grew up to fast and is to up tight for his own good.

Quotes

“I swore to you that I wouldn’t let that happen, and I know I’ve failed you, but I’m not going to just give up, Alex. I’ll never give up on you.” – Aiden to Alex, Elixir

These are not enough in order to have a full opinion but they’re enough. If you’ve read the books then you already know who you like the most. So leave your comments and let me know! I can’t wait to discuss with you about these two perfect beings!

[Thursday’s book recommendation] Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

thursday's book recommendation icon

So I am actually in the middle of reading the fourth book of the series, Apollyon. I find myself unable to write a proper review for the books because I am unusually excited. I don’t get excited very often because I am strict and bitch enough and I don’t allow myself to enjoy a book when there are plot holes or bad writing style. Well, thank god Jennifer is amazing and her books are close to flawless.

There are five books, already published.

aboutthebook icon

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.

[Monday’s Top 5] Favorite male characters and how they look like in my mind

monday's top 5 icon

 Well, deciding my favorite male characters was actually really hard for me. I don’t easily favor a character and to find 5 of them was like a challenge to me.

   I also had the need to show to the world how I believe they look like which is also pretty hard, right? When you read a book, you imagine the looks of a character based on what you read but I am sure that everyone has a different image in their mind.

   So here is my list of favorite characters, the reason why I love them and how they look like inside my head.

no5

Ristan – The Fae Chronicles by Amelia Hutchins

This is actually how the author, Amelia Hutchins, imagined Ristan and I am so so so satisfied with the picture.

Why I love Ristan?

Besides his obviously incredible looks, since the very beginning Ristan showed us signs of his good heart and his intelligence. He appeared to be loyal, loving and caring towards his friends and siblings and that’s something I truly appreciate. Sadly, he was not a main character and we didn’t have the chance to know more about his love life and how he treats his women but from what I gathered from the books, he respects women even if they betray him or wrong him. His humour is unbelievable and he knows how to use it in order to cheer up someone. He is always ready to fight for his beliefs and he doesn’t give up easily. His heart and body are both strong, precious and deserve to be loved by anyone.

no4

Gabriel Merrick – Elemental (series) by Brigid Kemmerer.

As far as I remember Gabriel has dark hair and perfect blue eyes. In general stunning and strong looks. The pic I found closer to the one I had in my mind was this one.

Why I love Gabriel?

Among five brothers he is the most damaged one and even if he did some wrong and bad things, the support from his family helped him realize what brotherly love really is and that made him a better person. It’s really important to me, to be able to admit your mistakes and to understand how important family is. Gabriel used to be the player of the school but that wasn’t what he really wanted. After meeting his current girlfriend, he realized how superior he really was and that he deserved better than being just another jerk. He learnt how to love deeply and be a good friend. He learnt how to fight for a better life and not just give up. Who doesn’t love a guy who learns through love and trust? Who doesn’t love a guy who was ready to give his life for weaker people? Plus, his life ambition is to become a firefighter. If that’s not perfection, the what is?Read More »
