Title: Obsidian
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout 
Publish Date: Published May 8th 2012 by Entangled Teen

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 love love LOVE ALIENS!!

 Katy and her mom are trying to start over and make a new life for themselves. New state, new town, new everything. Katy has decided not to be her shy self anymore when her mom incouraged her to go next door and meet the teenagers . Katy phsyched herself up, and went over there to meet the most arrogant, loathing teenage boy she has ever met, Daemon. HAWT! Even though Daemon tries to discourage her, Daemon’s sister Dee and Katy become fast friends.

 After Katy is almost in a tragic accident, saved by Daemon, she discovers the truth about Dee and Daemon, and the evil that is out to destroy them. She finally understands the strange stares by everyone in town. Daemon is forced to babysit Katy until her light fades, so they aren’t discovered.

 Obsidian has everthing I devour in a book. Great, exciting storyline, awesome characters, love, friendships, and complete WOW! The bickering and bantering between Katy and Daemon is quite hilarious, and begs for them to just get with it and admit their attraction to each other. Kitten, means something totally different to me now! Obsidian takes the idea of Aliens to an insanely incredible level of alien conspiracy…yeah, I’m going to be looking into the night sky for my Daemon!

The Blurb

Torn between the past she can't remember and a future she isn’t ready for, Claudia feels at a loss. With unanswered questions, she is certain there is more to her past than just being a venator. Finding the missing pieces in her life won’t be easy because duty calls. When mysterious dark shadows get released, an apocalypse sets in motion. The venators and the alkins must work together once again. Knowing Claudia would be the key to destroying the demons that were released, a familiar stranger appears to protect her. Drawn to the beautiful angel, Claudia finds she must unravel the mysteries of her past in order to help save the world. Who is the angel assisting her and why does she feel a strong connection to him? Time is running out. Will she discover all the secrets before it’s too late?

A Teaser

“Don’t move. I’m here to save you,” his tone was low, sounding nervous. During the last encounter, she was unaware of him, but this time the situation was different. Michael’s heart was pounding out of his chest, matching the rhythmic pattern of Claudia’s. He fought back the urge to hold all of her tenderly in his arms. This was the second time he came to her rescue. It was just as difficult, if not even more and heart breaking to touch her. Her proximity was overwhelming. His heart felt light with happiness, yet the pain of leaving her and her not knowing him was tormenting, ripping through his heart.
“Then why are you holding me hostage?” Her tone was tolerant, though she should be angered at the person holding her. There was something about the sound of his voice that gave her comfort. She heard his voice before, but when and where?
“I’m not holding you hostage.”
“Hmmm…let’s see. You have your arms around me and won’t let me move…so I guess you have another definition of what a hostage is then?” she answered back with a sassy tone.
Michael smiled and laughed inwardly. He loved her spunky side. “I guess you’re right.”
“Let me go. I can take care of myself.”
“Just stay still. It’s dark. You never know what can appear.”
                “Hmmm…so I’m your shield? What kind of hero are you?”
Michael lit a grin, trying not to laugh. “No. You are not my shield. And you’re right. I’m no hero.” But I used to be. Open up your heart, let me in and remember me. I want to be your hero again.

Book will be Released September 12, 2012

You have NO idea how excited I am to be a part of this Cover and Teaser reveal...I'm beyond words...and I get to write a blurb for it, which makes me SPEECHLESS...I have no doubt in my mind that Mary will take us on an insanely incredible adventure and emotional roller coaster ride!!

The Witness Tour and Review

Title: Witness
Author: Jamie Magee
Publish Date: Published July 2012

Forgetting who you are is hard, but not as hard as remembering. Remembering that you have no idea how to face your demons, how to save the lost. Charlie is at a sacred threshold. The ‘glass box’, as she calls it, is slowly falling. Her childhood has ended. The moment she has yearned for, the moment where she can go and do anything, anything at all without seeking permission is now. She’d dreamed of this time, all of her friends had, but now that it’s here, she doesn't know which way to run, or if she should even run at all. Charlie knew that running would be a goodbye forever, and she didn’t want that, she wanted to freeze the time she was in, to stay in the calm before the storm, the illusion that she could out wit the ones who seek her, hold the one she loves, and play the music that gives her passion. She’ll soon discover no one can hide from their fate, that time does not stop in place, and that whether she chooses to perceive it or not, the darkness has come. What Charlie feared most, losing him, is a threat now more than ever. A realm, a dark and twisted dream world has called him, and now she must fight to save him, and others like him. Standing in her way is a soul from another life, a boy that promises that he will destroy her world, to save her life. With this threat in hand, with the dark path that her friends are on, Charlie must fight to find a way to leave, to trust that beyond her dimension there are souls that can help her, help all of them. The only question is, will she find them before it's to late, and if she can't, how is she going to use her gift, the gifts they all share to save them.
Witness takes the See series to a whole new level.

Charlie is learning to See again. Her memories are gradually coming back, and the sense to See is returning although she really has to work at it. She used to be the expert in this and helped her friends, but now the rolls are turned. Charlie discovers Britian and Bianca are still around and it makes her furious. She keeps texting Britian to monitor him, and pretend that she still has memory loss.

The Whispers have faded away, and this makes Charlie nervous. She soon discovers that there is lightness and darkness, and the darkness is taking those lost souls away. She wants to make everything right, and protect those that she loves the most.

ARGH! Sometimes I am very lousey at writing a short review of the story. I am so worried about giving away to much information or spoilers! However, Witness takes you on an incredible roller coaster of a ride. The Unexpected will keep you so intrigued; you will not be able to put this book down. The characters personalities keep getting better, and new characters are introduced. For me, a few that I just love to hate. You learn more about the power to See, and how powerful and in depth it can get. The power of Love, friendships, and the will to keep fighting are twisted into this story with such creativity, I look forward to how this story progresses with excited enthusiasm.

See by Jamie Magee Review

Title: See
Author: Jamie Magee
Publish Date: Published May 5th 2012

Forgetting who you are, your ambitions, your passions is crippling….but remembering – embracing your purpose with a new sense of determination is more than empowering….it's life altering. Charlie Myers is on a life altering path that will cause the dammed to humble in silence. One night…just a few friends, how could it go so wrong? That was the question seventeen year old Charlie Myers was asking when she found herself in the ER. Outwardly nothing was wrong with Charlie, she was a vision of perfect heath, internally she was battling a raging headache…one the doctor told her she would overcome shortly, but Charlie knew something else was wrong …very wrong. Part of her had been stolen…she was missing memories. Those memories were sacred. They held the key to her sanity. They told her that the sinister whispers, the shadows that came to life before her were not as ominous as she felt they were. They held the bond with her late father, a famed musician. They caused her to forget the one talent that allowed her to face the darkness that haunted her every waking hour. They also masked a much deeper bond, the face of the one that had stolen her heart, long before the age of seventeen. Sitting in the ER with her angry mother she couldn’t figure out what she was missing, or even how. Her thoughts told her that she needed to protect Britain, a friend of hers, but that didn’t make any sense – Britain didn’t need to be protected from anyone, he was strong, young, and absurdly wealthy. Charlie also knew that even though her friend Bianca called Charlie her best friend, she didn’t trust her …she was almost sure she despised her, but she couldn’t figure out why, or understand how random thoughts were telling her that she adored both Britain and Bianca – that they were her saviors – that they brought silence to the unstoppable whispers, but the silence scared Charlie. In her mind anyone or anything that could bring silence to something that dark could not be good. Charlie wanted to stay in NY, figure out what she was missing, why, and who was behind it all, but her mother had other plans. Against her will, Charlie was sent to Salem to live with her sister, within that small town Charlie found her memories and so much more. Her story begins now.
I can’t give much more information about See than the synopsis provided from Goodreads. However, I can tell you how much I LOVED this story and the characters!

As Charlie is trying to regain her memories, she becomes frustrated. She knows her friends and family know much more than they are telling her. They promise her that she needs to remember on her own so that she can See more clearly. Little did she know what that actual word See would mean to her.

See is an Insanely incredible story about Charlie trying to regain her memories. The story unfolds right before your eyes as Charlie goes with her heart about who her true friends are and who her true love is. It was so much fun to learn right along with Charlie.  It proves that love always prevails.  The characters are easy to fall in love with and the plot Mind blowing.  Such incredible imagination is required to write a story like this.
