Publisher's Summary

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.

Problem with Narrator!

I had a huge problem with the narrator. She has a gravelly irritating tone that was like listening to nails on a chalk board. Even getting past that, she didn't differentiate the voices of the characters much.

The story might have been interesting if I hadn't already read Vampire Academy. There was so many similarities that it really distracted me. It was an OK story but not engaging and I'm not very interested in what will happen in the rest of the series.

Worst Narrator Ever!

What disappointed you about Half-Blood?

Regardless of the plot, I could not get into the story because of the narrator. She has such a low voice and her performance as some of the main guys in the story was awful! It was comical at times because of how "valley girl" she sounded. very disappointing


What could Jennifer L. Armentrout have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

picked a different narrator


What didn’t you like about Justine Eyre’s performance?

awful...worst I've ever heard.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It had potential but Justine's voice made it impossible to get into it.
