“Okay. I’m ready to move onto something else, like practicing with knives or defense against the dark arts. Cool things.”
“Did you just quote Harry Potter?”
? Jennifer L. Armentrout, Half-Blood

Half-Blood does not disappoint. Alex is a strong, independent heroine. She feels everything so strongly, especially her feelings for her Pure-Blooded trainer Aiden. If ever there were star-crossed lovers, Alex and Aidan take first prize. Forbidden to love by the gods themselves, they must fight their feelings for one another. When Alex learns that she is fated for Seth, she denies the connection, but in the end she could not. Torn between the two, Alex is lost at a crossroads without a map. With the help of her friends, Alex tries to adjust to the life that she has chosen—be Sentinel or a slave to the Pures—really there was no other choice for her life. Now Seth say’s there is. She can have her freedom, but at what cost?

Jennifer L. Armentrout is a master storyteller that captivates readers with her characters and their worlds. The Covenant series is no exception. Each character, good and bad, appeals to the reader on many levels. You will find yourself laughing, crying, yelling, sighing, and scheming with Alex Aiden, Caleb, and Seth. Half-Blood is just the beginning of this fast paced new series. Grab your copy today and immerse yourself in the Hematoi world.
