Here’s the very quick and may or may not be used blurb for Undone: 
Told from dual points of view, Undone is the upcoming finale for New York Times bestseller, Wendy Higgins’s, apocalyptic romance trilogy.

Best friends Remy Haines and Amber Tate are separated with no way to contact one another—no way to know if the other still lives. Remy and Jacob (Tater) Tate are taken as prisoners to the alien camp in Nevada, while Amber escapes to another hidden military bunker in Alaska with her crew of military friends.

Does Rylen make it to Alaska after his fighter jet is caught in the sight of two enemy jets?

Will Remy and Tater be able to fool the aliens into believing they’re allies, and possibly earn their trust enough to infiltrate? And how will Remy handle her feelings for Tater, especially when she earns the attention of a very important man at the camp?

Will humanity be saved?

Oblivion A Lux Novel by Jennifer L Armemtrout

Standard

 

Blurb:

Experience the epic love story of Obsidian as told by its hero, Daemon Black…

I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, its that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honsetly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can’t stop myself from wanting her – or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl… She can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy – the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.

Falling for Katy – a human – won’t just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen…

One thing you should know about me. I don’t tend to read books from the other characters POV. Like I’ll get them so I have them in my collection but not read them. But this one I NEEDED to read!

I’ve Ben waiting a long time for Daemon’s POV, especially as the Lux books went on and he was introduced with his own POV I was like I need more of him!

I don’t have kindle so I won’t be able to read Onyx and Opal in his POV (and I know I could read it on my new tablet and get a reading app but… I don’t like reading on a screen. I still have to read in book form! Sorry e-reader lovers… I just can’t get on with them!)

But yeah anyway!

So Oblivion is the first book Obsidian in Daemon’s POV. A lot of what happens in the Obsidian from Katy’s perspective happens in Oblivion but I don’t know it just seemed better in Daemon’s perspective. I loved the Lux books, they are one of my favourite series, but I just loved seeing how he was slowly falling in love with her and how much the feelings he had was tearing him apart and GAH it was just everything! 

If you’ve read the Lux books, you know what happens; Katy moves in next door to Daemon, she becomes friends with his sister Dee, despite him trying to get them to stop. Daemon is a dick to Katy but he wants her. There’s a few ups and downs, Daemon reveals who he is to her, she gets involved in there lives, then there’s some kissy kissy scenes, life gets a bit complicated and then Katy helps distract an Arum from going after Dee and there’s a big big fight and Daemon saves Katy’s life again and then its the whole will they won’t they get together in the next book.

Okay so that was a quick summary but I do have a review of Obsidian on my blog.

But basically it was so much better from Daemon’s POV. Everyone whose read the books LOVE Emon Black and this is the book for us lovers out there. 

Daemon is sarcastic and cocky and hot and everything! And I just loved seeing how much he was falling in love wit her and how hard he found it not being around her and GAH!

I could just repeat myself over and over and over again but I won’t otherwise its just going to be a very odd review (well it’s odd anyway but it’ll become odder!) Anyway if you have read The Lux books I strongly suggest reading this book. If I haven’t then you really need to read them!

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey book review

Standard

16131484

OH MY GOD THIS BOOK!!!!

Blurb:

How do you rid the Earth of seven billion humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.

Surviving the first four waves was nearly impossible. Now Cassie Sullivan finds herself in a new world, a world in which the fundamental trust that binds us together is gone. As the 5th Wave rolls across the landscape, Cassie, Ben, and Ringer are forced to confront the Others’ ultimate goal: the extermination of the human race.

Cassie and her friends haven’t seen the depths to which the Others will sink, nor have the Others seen the heights to which humanity will rise, in the ultimate battle between life and death, hope and despair, love and hate.

Just one word.

Evan.

Evan

EVAN

EVAN!

Oh my god this book was just… There are no words and no air!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Seriously this book was just perfectly flawless. Everything about it. I can’t even fault it!

The Infinite Sea picks up not long after The 5th Wave’s jaw dropping finale. Cassie and the group (minus Evan) have made it to their rendezvous point in an old abandoned hotel. Supplies are low, Zombie is injured, Cassie wants to wait as long as she can for Evan because he promised her he would always find her and Ringer has just about had enough of Cassie waiting on him.

Ringer decides to go it alone and she is followed by Teacup (who she mistakenly shoots, thinking she’s a Silencer) The pair are captured by Vosch and Ringer is forced to comply to his rules.

They mutate her, make her a super powered human and there she falls hard and fast for her guard Razor. But is he all he seems to be?

Back in the hotel, Zombie is getting worse, his wound isn’t healing as much as the others would like and he’s weak. Worse yet, Evan still hasn’t arrived and the others want to move on.

Then there’s Evan himself; Where is he? Is he alive? (dur of course he is haha) and more importantly is he on his way to Cassie? Well he was. Until he’s found by another Alien, Grace (who is MENTAL!) And she tries, unsuccessfully, to get him to sleep with her like the last time they were together. With a bit of violence from Evan he manages to escape and ends up at the rendezvous point where he finds Cassie and the others.

But he’s injured too and in no fit state to move anywhere until he’s healed.

Then there’s an unwelcome guest at the hotel, well two unwelcome guests and the group has to fight to stay alive.

Oh and the newest weapon in the Aliens midst?

Innocent children with a bomb.

The bomb is in their mouth and is activated by CO2 (breath basically)

What better way than to get rid of humans than to use bombed up children?

Then of course there’s another huge finale and I swear Rick Yancey ends his books and does things that make us bite our nails in anticipation.

I DO NOT WANT TO WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!

A whole freaking year!

This book was so similar in its style to The 5th Wave, started off a bit slow, tensed up in the middle and went epic at the end, that I thought it was a brilliant sequel in the trilogy.

I loved the duel POV’s, although it does you leave you guessing as to who it is sometimes.

Where the first book centred around Main Character Cassie, in this book she took a back seat and became a supporting character to Ringer.

Ringer.

Damn that girl.

She is so awesome and kickass and strong.

She falls hard and fast for her guard Razor and I really really really liked him and WHY RICK YANCEY WHY DID YOU DO THAT?!

But Evan.

Evan will always be in my heart,

He’s created a such a brilliant dystopian world. This book is hard to categorises as it falls into a lot of them. Although its YA it could just as easily be in the Sci Fi adult section in bookstores.

Everything Rick Yancey writes is visually perfect and I cannot wait for The 5th Wave to hit movie screens. I want it to live up to my visual.

I want the third book now but alas I have to wait until next year!

Seriously read these books. You will not be disappointed when you do.
