Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Fantasy
Published by: Spencer Hill Press
Summery from Goodreads:
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 totally hot pure-blood 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.
Alex is a half-blood which means she is the daughter of a Hematoi(a descendant of the greek gods)and a mortal. There is only two ways of life for half-bloods be a mindless servant for the Pure bloods(off spring of two Hematoi)or guard them and hunt down the Daimons[pure bloods who have went all dark side after getting a taste of Aether(life force running throw the blood of pure and half bloods)and will do anything for a fix].
Alex is one of the lucky ones. Training to be Sentinel(the half bloods who hunt down daimons)in the Covenant. I loved this book. I am late to the Jennifer L Armentrout fan club but I have become a card carrying member. The opening had my heart racing and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. This book sucks you in and doesn’t let you go even after you have reached the end. It has it all action,romance,special powers,forbidden love,and great main characters.Alex is a feisty,strong,and sarcastic heroine who has you rooting for her from page one. Aiden and Seth are two very hot swoon worthy heroes. I love how Aiden understands Alex and treats her as an equal. Aiden’s caring and understanding nature would sweep any girl off her feet. And here is were the forbidden love comes in.Alex is a half blood and Aiden is a pure and one of the rules is halfs and pures can’t date.Seth’s wit and bluntness where my favorite things about his character. I saw some things coming but just as many things I didn’t see coming. I loved the heat between the main characters Alex and Aiden. I swear the pages were hot to the touch. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book. This book is not to be missed for all young adult paranormal fantasy fans.
