Kayleigh, Aiden's awesome Advocate,  will have an awesome post up on why you should vote for the silver-eyed pure-blood. Keep an eye out on this PAGE to read it. I have to say I agree with her.

Teaser from Daemon's POV in Onyx
Inbetween the kisses that unraveled me and then pieced me back together, I spoke things I never told anyone.

Update  3:12pm
Teaser from Deity

“That’s enough,” Aiden said, shoving Seth as he let go. “Back off.”
“You really want to get involved in this?” Seth asked. “Right now?”
“More than you would ever know.”
Akasha fizzled out and Seth pushed Aiden. “Oh, I think I do. And
you know what, it’s something I think about… every time. You get what I’m saying?”
“That’s the best you got, Seth?” Aiden went toe-to-toe with the
Apollyon. And suddenly, I knew this wasn’t just about what had just
happened. This was more. “Because I think you and I both know the truth about that.”
Oh, dear gods, this was turning into a boy fight.
Seth moved so fast it was hard to see him. An arm cocked back,
aiming right for Aiden’s jaw. Reacting just as fast, Aiden caught Seth’s arm and threw him back again.
“Try it again, and I won’t stop,” Aiden warned.

A second later they were crashing into each other.
