Summary from Goodreads:“Could you kill the one you love?”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 sucks.
This book was recommended to me by my friend (Angela of Reading Angel) and since I trust trust trust her opinions about books, I became so excited to read it. Fortunately (have I told I am so lucky lucky?) I won the book in one of her giveaway. Told you I’m lucky! =)
I first read Daimon (Prequel Novella to Half-Blood) which I downloaded HERE for free (and you should get it too). I loved the book and finished it in one sitting! You can read my review, just click HERE.
Alex and Rose are very much alike in so many ways. They’re both kick-ass, stubborn, snarky, and cannot be contained. They act before they think, and that usually get them into trouble. They will do anything and everything to protect the one they love. Aiden St. Delphi is like Dimitri Belikov. Both are drop-dead gorgeous, hot and drooling… and they’re the girls’ mentors too. Rose has Mason, Alex has Caleb, and nemesis are ever present: Lea and Mia–both are bitches. When I think about the Pure, Half-Blood and Daimon, I remember the Moroi, Dhampir and Strigoi.
You might think that those similarities might lessen your enjoyment, but it wasn’t the case for me. There are so much more in the story which you’ll be excited to read about. It’s so entertaining and very hard to put down. I enjoyed every minute of it, from the beginning up to the last page. There is no dull moment, only exciting ones. There is no cliff-hanger ending but it ended in such a way that you’ll want and need the next book. With nothing to hate but so much to love and enjoy, you’ll definitely don’t want to miss it. It’s one of the best book out there that I won’t ever hesitate to recommend. You must read it!
The grin increased to a full smile. And… oh, man. He had dimples. The air in my lungs died. – Alex
I glanced down at the dumbbell and pictured it flying across the room—at his face. But it was such a nice face, and I’d hate to ruin it. – Alex
Who wouldn’t want Aiden St. Delphi? You tell me.
And my favorite:
“I knew you were going to do something incredibly stupid. That’s why I couldn’t sleep at all. I sat by my damn window and waited. Low and behold, I see your crazy ass sneaking across the quad!” – Caleb
I so love Caleb. Bestfriends rocks 😉
