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.

If you like Richelle Mead!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you liked any of Richelle Mead's books (Vampire Academy or Game board of the gods), there's no reason why you wouldn't like this series. Everyone says it reminds them of Vampire Academy series like it's a negative thing and if they stopped at just the first book I can see why they would think that, but I am on book 3 and I definitely think this series stands apart. Similar, not the same. It is certainly worth listening to!
P.s. The main characters ages range around 17-24.... so it has more "adult" scenes than the Vampire Academy series.


What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I had a little trouble with some of the narration in the first book, but she gets better during the 2nd book.
