Daemon vrs Aiden VOTE & Giveaway reminder

To celebrate the release of Obsidian this week, I have a little competition for ya!  I've done a little competition between two of Jennifer L. Armentrout's leading guys.  And there's a VOTE involved.

First up is Daemon Black from Obsidian

Personality – Daemon comes off a bit moody at first…ok a lot moody until you get through his walls protecting his family. Here’s some moodiness:

“Both eyebrows were raised to his hairline now as if he were questioning how I could be so dumb, and that’s when I realized what I saw sparkling in his eyes. He was laughing at me with a healthy dose of condescension.” Page 7

From his sister – “He was having a bad day. He’s worse than a girl, trust me. He doesn’t hate you. We’re twins. Even I want to kill him on days that end with a Y. Anyway, Daemon’s kind of rough around the edges. He doesn’t get along with…people.” Page 11

“He smirked as he watched me. ‘I don’t like that you’re friends with my sister.’” Page 29

“’I’m only going to tell you this once. If anything happens to my sister, so help me—‘ He stopped taking a deep breath as his gaze dropped to my parted lips. My breath caught. Something flickered in his eyes, but they narrowed again, hiding whatever had been there.” Page 30

Quite the charmer, isn’t he?

Looks – “…I was staring at a very broad, tan, well-muscled chest. A naked chest… Jeans hung low on his hips, revealing a thin line of dark hair that formed below his navel and disappeared under the band of the jeans. His stomach was ripped. Perfect. Totally touchable. …traveling north…thick sooty lashes fanning the tips of his high cheeks and hiding the color of his eyes….Full kissable lips…His lashes lifted, revealing eyes so green and brilliant they couldn’t be real. They were an intense emerald color that stood out in vibrant contrast against his tan skin…the boy lifted an arm, brushing back a wavy lock of hair on his forehead.” Page 11-12

Yeah, I think that about says it all.

Talents – Hmmm. Pretty much this is classified with that if I told ya, I’d have to kill you rule. But they are varied and totally cool. He does a great job of protecting his family and as it turns out Katy.

What makes him better than Aiden- Passion! Daemon is very passionate about his family, about Katy. He also breaks a few rules to protect them. Such a bad boy he is.

Check out my interview with Daemon’s.

Next up, Aiden St. Delphi from Half-Blood.

Personality- Aiden’s kind of the dark quiet type, very responsible, very honorable, very badass. Here are a few peeks at his personality.

“Aiden’s lips twitched as if he wished to smile. ‘You’re still a kid.’” Page 42

“For a moment, the hardness in his expression softened. When he looked at me like that, I truly believed he understood my reaction.” Page 43

“But he did have one thing in common with my old Instructors. The moment I walked into the gym, he was all business.” Page 45

“My gaze met Aiden’s. He watched the whole thing with helpless anger etched into his face. I could tell there was a part of him that wanted to step in, but he knew he couldn’t.” page 63
“He actually laughed louder then. It was deep and rich. Nice. I glanced up quickly, hoping ot see his dimples.” Page 78


“In front of me, he walked through the flames, looking every bit like a daimon hunter should. The fire did not singe his pants nor dirty his shirt. Not a single dark hair was touched by the blaze. Those cool, storm-cloud-colored eyes fixed on me.” Page 4

“He wore all black – the uniform Sentinels wore.” Page 6

“There wasn’t an inch of space between us.  I could feel the hard ripple of his abdominal muscles pressing against my stomach, could feel his lips only inches from mine.  Suddenly I entertained a wild idea.  I wondered if his lips felt as good as they looked… because they looked awesome.” Page 8

“All six and half feet of him came to an abrupt stop the moment he saw me.” Page 17

“Aiden’s dark brown waves continually fell over his forehead, brushing against equally dark brows. The lines of his face were nearly perfect, the curve of his jaw strong, and he had the most expressive lips I’d ever seen. But it was those thundercloud eyes I found beautiful. No one had those eyes." Page 18

"The grin increased to  a full smile. And...oh, man.  He had dimples." Page 82

Talents and characteristics-

Able to use compulsions
Controls the fire element
Pure blood – the offspring of Gods (Hematoi)
Sentinel – daimon hunter

What makes him better than Daemon?

The fact that he’s not Daemon should be enough! But Aiden is sexy hot in a very different way. Badass yet kind makes him the better choice.

  1. Gosh. that was hard!

  2. How can anyone choose between these two ?? :O
    That is mean ! :P

    Great blog you have here :D

  3. I haven't read either book yet and even I found it difficult to choose.

  4. Ahh omg both are awesome and HOT.
    I voted for Aiden though because Daemon can be a bit frustrating at times. lol BUT Daemon is definitely the unique and funny one. :)

  5. That was really almost an impossible choice, but I had to go with Daemon. I have read all of the extra scenes in his PoV and I can't help but absolutely love him. I love Aiden too, but I just had to choose Daemon. Behind his attitude is a lot of passion for sure.

  6. Go Daemon! I LOVED him in Obsidian so I had to go with him. :) This is so fun!

  7. Daemon all the wayy! Mostly because I don't know who Aiden is, but...LOVE!

  8. OMG it was so hard to choose between them. I love them both just from reading the post. I need this book so bad! In the end, I choose Daemon! :]

  9. That was a hard choice! But I ended up voting for Daemon :-)

  10. I haven't read either book yet but I definitely will. From the descriptions I have to go with Daemon. Yes he is moody and can be mean but the protective and passionate sides to him sound much stronger. Plus the cover pictures of him are just wow.

  11. I haven't read Obsidian yet, and I'm currently reading Half-Blood, so I had to go with Aiden! I hope to read Obsidian very soon, then I will be able to make an informed decision:)

  12. They both sound so dreamy i love these bad boys!!

  13. That was a tough choice! I just read Obsidian and loved it!! I had to close my eyes to vote cuz I couldn't decide :D

  14. I haven't read any of her books but I'm dying because everyone love them!! :)

  15. I haven't read Half-Blood or Obsidian yet, but they both sound hot!

  16. This is so hard!! But from what I've read, Aiden get my vote.

  17. Tough choice. I kept going back & forth. It's really a win-win. Or should I say hot-hot

  18. They're both amazing... but I vote Aiden all the way. Gotta love tall, dark and brooding :)

  19. Thanks for the giveaway! (=
