This book is a little hard to explain the little details about these people, so it’d probably be best to read the synopsis given by Goodreads. :) Alexandria- or Alex- and her mother moved away from the Covenant three years ago. Doing so ruined any chances of Alex being a Sentinel which is the highest ranking for a half-blood. But, one night Alex stumbles upon her mother being murdered by daimons (pronounced demons). With nothing left, Aiden finds her and brings her back to the islands. She has to redeem herself in order to stay in the academy and finish out school, if she can’t do that, then life of slavery. Pures and halfs are not supposed to mix with each other, meaning no relationships between the two. Only pures with pures, and halfs with halfs. If they are caught, the pures get a slap on the wrist and halfs are sentenced to death. No questions or buts. Aiden is a pure, Alex is a half. Aiden is training Alex everyday to bring her back up to where everyone else is in the program.
Seriously, words cannot describe my love for JLA. She has a way of making a lot of her main characters very sarcastic and just fun to be around, which is something I really like about her books. She makes it almost effortless to fall for the characters and easily relate with them. She makes the main male leads extremely sexy and swoon-worthy, it’s unbelievable.
Aiden is most definitely swoon-worthy. Dear lord, he’s just perfection in a bottle. I may start gushing here in a bit because I can’t contain how much I loved this book! I’ll try my best. I loved Alex and her best friend, Caleb’s relationship as well. I loved that her best friend was a guy and not a girl. I don’t know how to feel about Seth- who will make this a love triangle. However, I trust JLA, and I know this will be a love triangle (if it comes to that) that works and one that isn’t annoying. Maybe because I already have my heart set on Aiden, it may get annoying. But I honestly think it will work and it won’t be annoying.
I’m beyond excited to see what happens in Pure and continue on with this amazing series!!!
"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!
Alex is one of the lucky ones. Training to be Sentinel(the half bloods who hunt down daimons)in the Covenant. I loved this book. I am late to the Jennifer L Armentrout fan club but I have become a card carrying member. The opening had my heart racing and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. This book sucks you in and doesn't let you go even after you have reached the end. It has it all action,romance,special powers,forbidden love,and great main characters.Alex is a feisty,strong,and sarcastic heroine who has you rooting for her from page one. Aiden and Seth are two very hot swoon worthy heroes. I love how Aiden understands Alex and treats her as an equal. Aiden's caring and understanding nature would sweep any girl off her feet. And here is were the forbidden love comes in.Alex is a half blood and Aiden is a pure and one of the rules is halfs and pures can't date.Seth's wit and bluntness where my favorite things about his character. I saw some things coming but just as many things I didn't see coming. I loved the heat between the main characters Alex and Aiden. I swear the pages were hot to the touch. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. This book is not to be missed for all young adult paranormal fantasy fans.
