Book Review: Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Book: Half-Blood (covenant#1)
Plot: 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.
Rating: 5 / 5 stars
Half way there to an epic series
I owe this book to my book buddy swati who recommended this to me. The series is undoubtedly worthy of being in your shelf as it has every exciting elements in it to keep you happy. Hot guy, hot blooded heroine and forbidden love angle, an exciting and exhilarating love triangle ..and above all “a good proclamation and anticipation of war coming”. So in all everything you would want from a paranormal romance. Plus it’s the queen herself Jennifer. L. Armentrout that has written this book. so I don’t think anything else Is required to explain. Why this book.
The story may head to every known alleys of paranormal romance that you may have read before but the treatment makes it all worth at the end. There are whole lot of twists and turns happy to make you reader soul happy and satisfied
The language as akin to the author’s writing style is devoid of complexities and is simple, lucid and perfectly enjoyable adding to the beauty of the book. Make sure you have the sequel ready because you may not want to be left stranded with cliff hangers and the thirst and pain of waiting
