Review: Half-Blood 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.

I warn you now...this series is highly addictive. This is probably one of my favorite books...ever. Hands down, it's worth five stars. Just about any book Jennifer L. Armentrout writes, I fall in love with. The characters are amazing. Alex is strong, witty and sarcastic, and doesn't let anybody stand in her way of what she wants. Caleb, her best friend is loyal to a fault. Aiden is her patient instructor who stands up for her...and did I mention he's super hot? Seth is the Apollyon who's sexy and powerful, and though he would never admit it, he cares about Alex. Between the two of them, it's possibly the hardest choice ever. There were so many plot twists in the book, it always kept me on the edge of my seat, and the banter between characters always made me giggle at the book like a psychopath. Honestly, it's books like these that make me disappointed with life! Why can't I have two hot guys fighting over me while having superpowers?! Haha, I kid. But I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

Book Nerd and Proud,
