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. - 
 Overall I really enjoyed this book, my only issue with it was that I found it very similar to Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. I wish I would have read this one first, because I really love Jennifer L. Armentrout's writing style! 

I actually enjoyed the characters of this story more than I did th characters from Vampire Academy. I always love when there is a bad ass, independent woman in the lead role, which is exactly what Alexandria was!

I'm not 100% on whether or not I will continue with the series, still a little on the fence!

While reading this book i could help but thinking... this sounds familiar!

  1. Just wanted to pop in and say I loved this series of hers way more than the Lux series. Which is saying something because I really liked that series as well.
