The writing is just like all of Armentrout’s other books…addictive, amazing and fun. The world building is great. I like how intricate it is already and it is only book one! I normally don’t find myself gravitating towards books that have Greek mythology, but it really added a great element to the story. I also liked that there were so many twists and turns I never seen coming and I found myself staying up late to finish reading.
The character development in this book was great. I really liked Alex, but she did seem like the somewhat stereotypical heroine in these types of books. She is sassy, strong, bottles up her emotions and makes rash decisions that end up putting her and the people she loves in danger. Some of her decisions in this book did annoy me, but she had other redeeming personality traits that made her slowly grow on me. I hope that in future books, she will not make as many rash decisions just to drive the plot forward.
Aiden, the main romantic interest, was also somewhat stereotypical. He was the quiet, brooding, protective type. However, that is good for me since I really enjoy those characters. However, I am really interested in Seth (the other romantic interest, maybe?). I am excited to learn more about him in the next book and delve deeper into getting to know his history.
One thing I really LOVED about this book was the growing relationships. I felt the friendship between Caleb and Alex was really sincere and heart-warming. They were there for each other and their relationship never felt forced. I also like the relationship between Aiden and Alex. There was just so much angst, which I love! I cannot wait to see how their relationship progresses. They might even beat out my OTP of Katy and Daemon (which will be really hard to do!).
This book does get compared to Vampire Academy…a lot! When looking over the book reviews to this book, all I see is readers comparing the two books. I did read Vampire Academy about a year ago and I did not like it. I never continued on with the series (yet) even though I have all the books. I liked this book WAY better than Vampire Academy. I can see the similarities, but there are tons of books that have similarities that I like both or one of the series. I don’t think that the similarities should affect reader’s opinions on whether they pick this series up or not. The writing is different and from what I hear, after book one, the series move in different directions.
Overall, I think that anyone and everyone would love this book. If you have read Armentrout in the past, you will love it. If you have not read Armentrout yet, you will love it. I am really excited to keep reading this story and see where it goes. I am also really excited to be able to read the spin-off series that Armentrout is currently writing that revolves around Seth and is NA!
"Half-Blood" was an amazingly awesome first installment in the Covenant Series by the ever so talented, Jennifer L. Armentrout. I loved everything about it: the storyline, characters, everything. Truly, I did. I never wanted it to end and the conclusion left me craving for more, as all of Ms. Armentrout's books tend to do.
The storyline was incredibly unique and intriguing, and I couldn't get enough of it. Honestly, it was amazing. I had never read a book based on Greek mythology before, and I have to say, I absolutely loved it. It kept me extremely entertained throughout, and everything that happened - and there was a lot - never once left me bored. I continuously wanted to keep reading and was on the edge of my seat the entire time, seriously not knowing what to expect next.
The characters, oh my, don't even get me started on them. They. Were. AMAZING! Honestly, they completely made the book for me. The main characters, Alex and Aiden, were phenomenal and I instantly fell in love with them. Alex was so freaking hilarious and entertaining; there was definitely never a dull moment when she was around. Aiden was sinfully sexy and her complete opposite in almost every way. They balanced each other out extremely well, though, and I loved the chemistry between the two of them. I loved getting to see them interact with each other, and thank the gods there wasn't any shortage of that. Many of the secondary characters were wonderful and extremely entertaining as well, especially Caleb and Seth. Caleb was Alex's best friend and partner-in-crime, and her male counterpart in almost every way possible. You never knew what the two of them would do, but it usually ended up with them getting into trouble - namely Alex. Seth and Alex were also very similar, almost eerily so, but they were certainly entertaining and fun to read about.
I loved, loved, LOVED this first installment in the Covenant Series, and I cannot wait to read the rest! Holy Daimon Babies, I'm thoroughly hooked!
