Half-Blood (Covenant #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout


∴ Half-Blood (Covenant #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout


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.


“Then I should be relieved to know what I was told an hour ago is false. It wasn’t you who yanked a girl–by her hair–out of chair in the common lounge area.”

I really enjoyed this book. I’ve read Jennifer’s Lux series and I really enjoyed it too. I wondered if this series would be as good because they are obviously about two totally different things and the plots were drastically different. This book sold me on Jennifer’s writing and I now know that I will probably read anything she writes. She is really talented and her books are definitely worth reading. The only thing about this book that I found as a negative was that it severely reminded me of Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. The plots are very similar and, because of that, it was kind of easy to guess the plot twists and guess what were supposed to be shocking moments. I’m glad I read it and would definitely recommend it.
