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.
"Sexy, sizzling, touching, and fun." (Leigh Fallon, author of Carrier of the Mask)

Story as good as narrator is bad!
Good Book, Terrible Reader
The reader. I really enjoyed the story, but I will have to get the rest of them as books to read myself, because as an audio book, it just annoyed me.
When Alex went to the infirmary to visit Cain, and he turned out to be a half-blood demon! Very scary and while I wasn't really surprised, it wasn't pleasant in a good plot twist kind of way.
Anyone who doesn't sound like they are working on a bowel movement while reading! I can think of any number of readers that would be better. I do like when there are male and female readers in particular. Love the Phil and Natalie paring of the fever series by KMM.
I can't wait to read what happens next with Alex and her men. First we have to find out what all this stuff about her being the second Apollyon and Seth and her attraction to Aiden and the changing laws regarding Pures and half-bloods dating. Lots of loose ends!
Please, for the love of all that is holy stop letting Justine Eyre read books. She is not good at it. When my friend told me it sounded like she was on the toilet, I was amazed at how right he was. I am not usually a mean person, and hate to say this, but if this is the only way to keep her from ruining more books, then it has to be said. Maybe, she needs to find another line of work at which she can excel, because this ain't it.
