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.

I enjoyed the story, loved/hated the characters with exuberance. I was intrigued by the mythology around the edges. I wanted to kiss the ground and scream "thanks book gods for finally doing it right" but I didn't I would have probably gotten smacked by a falling book for that. I love the feeling of...
UPDATEDI cannot begin to tell you just how much I detest authors who plagiarize. From the pages of Half Blood you can actually see the regret Armentrout had by not coming up with Vampire Academy herself. Although I told myself never to read this POS, I finally gave in to one of my oldest friends. Sh...
I found most of this book somewhat boring. It took me a while to get into the plot-line and the characters, but once I did it was quite an enjoyable read. But, not my favorite of Armentrout's book. Much like the Lux series, I think I'll enjoy it more and more as I get further in. Alex is a half-bl...
This was really good, and not what I expected it to be upon reading it, I'll admit I was a bit skeptical about diving into this after listening to the prequel on audio. But I wasn't disappointed I really was drawn to the character Alexandria. So if you like something with some kind of mythology the...
