Kristina Snyder Let me know how this set is!!! I have been debating on whether to order it.

message 2: by Mateja (new)

Mateja So far I love it, but it is very similar to the Vampire Academy series. A girl on the run from her school gets caught by the Sentinels that were send to find her and then she has private lessons with an instructor to catch up on what she missed. She then falls for the instructor even though it is forbidden. The half blood have only two choices in life, either protect the pures or work for them as servants. Relationships between the pures and halfs are a taboo....Ring any bells? It reads like the synopsis for the first vampire academy book. Though nothing's wrong with that since I loved the Vampire academy.

Kristina Snyder I love Vampire Academy!!!! That is one of my favorite series, and that does sound very familiar. I know books are always going to be something like the others, but that is too much something. That sounds exactly like Vampire Academy. Is it worth buying?

Mateja Yes. Even though it a lot like VA it's still very good. The similarity between books, any books, don't bother me as long as the book is still good. While you're reading it you get the same feeling like you did during the VA. But i'm only a third way through. But people on Twitter are absolutely gushing about it. So I'd say it's worth the money and time.

Tanja (Tanychy) St. Delphi Yes it's similar to VA, but still i love this book. You'll enjoy it, i have no doubts! :)

Mateja it never bothers me if two books are very alike, as long as the book is good, i'm happy. i'm not a picky reader.

Tanja (Tanychy) St. Delphi yeah, i don't mind either as long as they're good.

Mateja i take it as a good sign when people compare new releases to old ones. that's why i bought starcrossed, even though in the end i didn't see much similarity between it and twilight. if people say sth is like twilight or VA i say bring it on. those are my favorite series. it won't put me off reading just because it's not unique. i'll be even more excited, to get back that feeling i had when i first read my fave series.

Tanja (Tanychy) St. Delphi I totally agree with you! :)

message 10: by Kristina (new)

Kristina Snyder I agree with you all. It gets tiring how everyone compares every book to Twilight. One book I read, someone left a comment on how it was like Twilight because the girl and guy were partners in science. I was like, oh come on!! I am not a picky reader too. As long as it is good, I'll read it. How many books are in this set so far? I'll have to order it.VA is one of my favorites.

Mateja you mean in the Covenant series? half-blood is the first and only one out so far, the second one comes out in April. no waiting a year for the sequel (which pisses me off).

message 12: by Kristina (new)

Kristina Snyder Your tellin me!!! I just ordered it!!! Can't wait.

BlebeTanja vau. tvoj opis zgodbe je res čisto VA. Je vredno brat? ;)

message 14: by Mateja (new)

Mateja ja. sej samo začetek je enak VA, potem se pa stvari zakomplicirajo na čisto svoj način. in knjiga je brez dvoma dobra, čeprav prva tretjina močno spominja na VA.

message 15: by BlebeTanja (new)

Monika Hehe, jaz sem tudi hotla prvo Lolo, ampak sem pol raje vzela Half-Blood v roke. :P

message 23: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Great review Mateja! It sounds like there's a love triangle in this with Seth & Aiden?

message 24: by Mateja (new)

Mateja Thank you :)

No love triangle yet. But I think there will be. She's not in love with both (yet), only with one of them. We'll see how long that lasts :)

message 25: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Did you read the prequel to this story?

message 26: by Mateja (new)

Mateja No, I rarely read prequels or short stories.
