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.

My Take:

Could you kill the ones you love? This was a question that was on my mind throughout reading this and the answer blew me away. Alex just went through the one thing no one is supposed to go through she lost someone she loves. Surviving was the only thing running through her mind, before the end happens. Alex wasn't told the reason her mom took her and left the safety of the covenant, and even though its been three years since she has seen the one place she called home, she knew to get back their for her survival. She never forgot the rules and of those was to never fall for a pure but when she has to practice training with the hottest pure at the covenant, Adien she has 2 choices follow her heart and be happy or follow the rules. This was so enchanting because Alex proved herself plus she is one of my favorite MC's ever. I not going to lie Adien is HOT with a capital H, and I can see why Alex fell for him all that time ago who can turn away from someone that is so willing to help you out. Yup he is a keeper. What lies ahead is the ultimate question for Alex as she goes through her days at school knowing that life gives you certain things whether its fate for fortune its up to Alex grab it or let it go. BTW Caleb is the best friend every girl deserves an of course the one guy who can give Alex the complete truth.

5/5 stars
