I read this book months ago and remembered really loving it. I recently started reading it again and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed it just as much, if not more, the second time around!
It feels as if this is one of those books that readers absolutely love or just plain hate. A common complaint is that Half-Blood is is similar to another popular paranormal romance series called Vampire Academy. While there are similarities, I feel as if it’s not an exact replica which many tend to believe. This series is undeniably addictive and if I have to be honest, I enjoyed it much more than Vampire Academy. The characters were beautifully developed. As the story progresses, the characters get more kick ass and you’ll find yourself becoming so enraptured that the hours just start to fly by. I love all of Jennifer Armentrouts series. She knows exactly how to keep her readers enthralled.
I really only have good things to say about the Covenant series. It’s probably my favorite of its genre and I’d recommend it a thousand times over.
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.
