New Trailers: Half - Blood (Jennifer L. Armentrout) and Wither (Lauren DeStefano)

Hey everyone!
 
I'm always excited about new covers, teasers and book trailers, so I wanted to share with you two teaser trailers I stumbled upon today. ;)
 
Jennifer L. Armentrout released the first teaser trailer for her upcoming novel, Half-Blood! She also hosts a giveaway on her blog, so check it out!
 
 
Half-Blood (Covenant #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout 
Pub.: September 15th 2011 by Spencer Hill Press
 
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 pure-blooded 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.

Wow, there are a lot of new concepts and names in this book, I'm really intrigued about it. And I like the trailer too, it's kind of cute. :)

And then there's the trailer for Wither by Lauren DeStefano:
 
  
Wither (Chemical Garden #1) by Lauren DeStefano
Pub. March 22nd 2011 by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
 
 What if you knew exactly when you would die?
Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.
When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home. 
But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left.
I've read mixed reviews about this book (bad idea!), but I'm still excited about it. (I wrote a Waiting on Wednesday post about it a few weeks ago). I LOVE the cover - and the trailer - and the whole idea of the book seems amazing. :D I can't wait to read it and get my own opinion!
 
So what do you guys think about the trailers?:D
Happy reading!

P.S. It's one of those days when I have no idea what to read next. I can't decide on a single book from my TBR pile. LOL

  2. The love interest is not only forbidden but so wonderful good! I liked that Ms. Armentrout created a relationship that is modifiable to the world she created. So many rules and regulations make this relationship so much more wanted! Just the thought of it being forbidden, made every stolen moment that they took made it so much more addicting!!!
