About Book:

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.

My Thoughts:

Why oh why Jennifer do you always leave me swooning over the guys in your books. This book was no exception it was a total package with a swoon worthy guys and a wonderful storyline. I love the characters in this story I found myself slowly falling in love with the guys and wishing that I could be Alex. Alex is such a kick butt girl she’s determined and full of a spark that made me feel almost envious of her. I love her determination to save herself and get to where she knows she will be safe in the beginning. Alex has so much spunk and it’s amazing. THen There is Aiden who is sexy and left me swooning constantly. I love that he and Leon both stood up for A;ex. I love that he even gave up his own time to help her. The way this story unfolds is perfect I loved that it picked up right where Daimon left off. This is a story that keeps you interested from the beginning to  the end. I honestly loved that there are so many twist and unexpected turns. The characters are awesome. Alex is a stubborn girl who knows she has a greater purpose and strives to get there. Aiden is strong but gentle who does his best by people. Caleb is loyal and sticks by Alex no matter what how crazy she gets. Marcus is stoic but you know he cares about Alex and wants what is best for her. Seth is an as that you love. He very slowly grows on you. Then Deacon is like that person you want to say is annoying but you can’t because he just grows on you. He shows that he is just as wonderful as his brother. 

This book is amazing. Once again I have been drawn into a series that I can’t bear to put down. Jennifer L. Armentrout has once again made a wonderful book that is just wow. I think I have said that already. If you are a fan of her work or not it is a great read for anyone. (if you have yet to)

quotation-marks

“It was just a hug, but gods, it meant so much. It meant everything.” 

“It’s just words and words mean nothing. Only action does.”

“You need to know about love. The things people will do for love. All truths come down to love, do they not? One way or another, they do. See, there is a difference between love and need. Sometimes, what you feel is immediate and without rhyme or reason.” She sat up a little straighter. “Two people see each across a room or their skin brushes. Their souls recognize the person as their own. It doesn’t need time to figure it. The soul always knows… whether it’s right or wrong.”

“People do the damndest things when they’re in love.”

“Okay. I’m ready to move onto something else, like practicing with knives or defense against the dark arts. Cool things.”
“Did you just quote Harry Potter?”

happy reading
