Week 50 Reviews: The Demon's Covenant, The Demon's Surrender

From Goodreads:
Mae Crawford's always thought of herself as in control, but in the last few weeks her life has changed. Her younger brother, Jamie, suddenly has magical powers, and she's even more unsettled when she realizes that Gerald, the new leader of the Obsidian Circle, is trying to persuade Jamie to join the magicians. Even worse? Jamie hasn't told Mae a thing about any of it. Mae turns to brothers Nick and Alan to help her rescue Jamie, but they are in danger from Gerald themselves because he wants to steal Nick's powers. Will Mae be able to find a way to save everyone she cares about from the power-hungry magician's carefully laid trap?

From Goodreads:
The Goblin Market has always been the center of Sin’s world. But now the Market is at war with the magicians, and Sin’s place is in danger. Thrown out of the Market she loves, Sin is thrown together with brothers Nick and Alan—whom she's always despised.

Alan has been marked by a magician and is being tortured so that the magicians can get to Nick. As Sin watches Alan struggle to protect the demon brother he loves, she begins to see him in a new light—but she and Mae are locked in a fierce rivalry over who will inherit the leadership of the Goblin Market, and a decisive battle with the Aventurine Circle is looming. Mae's brother, Jamie, is holed up with the magicians, his loyalties in question. And Nick—well, who knows what a demon might do to save his brother? How far will Nick go to save Alan—and what will it cost them all?

My Review:
Loved these books!!! And the made up word of Jamie's, "enterpainable" so cute!! And funny, considering, while he was drunk, I believe it was, yeah, these were 2 really awesome books! I loved reading them so much!

I did miss being in Nick's head, especially since he has some pretty important things in these books, but it was also really great to be in Mae's, and then Sin's heads, because they were part of the world, so we got to see so much more!

I do wish that there'd been more of Alan, and his schemes, they were a lot of these two books, but I wanted more of that! He was really clever, and that was really amazing to read about, to wonder what he was planning!

Such great books, I enjoyed so them freaking much, and loved them even more, and I need to find myself some more Sarah Rees Brennan books to read, like, stat!
