AVERAGE RATING: 4.23
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.
Holy effing WOWSERS! I knew the Jennifer L. Armentrout had blown me away before with her Lux series, but wow she has done it again with this series as well. This woman knows how to create a world, with fantastic characters, and amazing plot line, and hope beyond hope of things as well. However parts of it seemed almost to some point that I was reading Vampire Academy again, with the Trainer falling for the trainee and vice versa, the whole trainer goes out to seek the trainee, and an unbreakble bond formed right at the beginning. But you know what!? I don't care because I loved it in those books, and I'm loving it again in this one. Jennifer L. Armentrout has officially been made one of my most favorite authors.
