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 give this book a five out of five. I absolutely loved it. I loved the story, the characters and the relationships between those characters. The main character Alex is a strong lead female character that knows what she wants in her life and is doing everything she can to achieve her goals. She doesn’t let anything get in her way and that is really refreshing to see in books. She also has great friends that she would do anything for and do anything to protect them. This book has the right amount of balance between action, adventure and love. The reader has a girl that is having to start over and starts to find out new things about herself that is going to change her life and send her down a whole new path that will have its ups and down, twists and turns and it is not easy.
