"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."

Half- Blood is told by 17 year old Alexandria, how left the safety of the only world she ever knew. All because her mother wanted to leave for reasons she wouldn't even tell her daughter. They live among the mortal for 3 years until something happens that changes Alex's life forever. She is back at the Covenant. Trying to put the things of the past beyond her and catch up with everything she's missed. While training with Aiden her crush deepens.
I loved Alex, she is a mix of a strong willed female character who isn't afraid to kick some butt. Also isn't afraid to let those she trusts with how she is feeling. I am so happy to have read this book. Jennifer's writing is amazing.
Cannot wait to read the rest of the series. 5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
