Wow. Everything about Half-Blood tickled and entertained the reader in me. I dreaded turning the last page and found myself not wanting the story to end.... somehow hoping more pages would magically appear. Hey, I deserve to have a delusional moment or two from time to time.

Storyline, foundation, characters, the whole nine yards held up to my expectations. Reading the synopsis some months ago I was riveted and knew I was going to read Half-Blood. Luckily, I was given an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review. Well, I'm in love with Aiden St. Delphi and I have a feeling Seth is going to be a close runner up.... How is that for honesty? Yes, I can be a bit fickle when it comes to my book crushes but I know I'm not the only one.

Alex, short for Alexandria "Defender of Man," is a character I immensely love. She's so much fun to read. Aiden is the guy I know will win hearts in a millisecond. He has a background that has me grasping for more and a calm-quiet exterior that made me want to see what will get him going. Seth is quite the character as well. He's more then meets the eye and the promise of more to come has me squirming in my computer chair. Caleb is the world bestest friend and quite the man himself. Not a love interest mind you but Alex has enough on her plate. Alex and Caleb and their bff relationship is sweet to the core and they mesh so well together. I enjoy the female-male attitudes playing off one another. It helps to deepen the plot.

The only thing that strikes me and I must say this because I know it'll be on the minds of every avid reader. Half-Blood is reminiscent of the Vampire Academy series. In fact, after I read the synopsis months ago I immediately thought of Rose. However, as I read on I came to the conclusion that Half-Blood holds its own in every shape and form. The characters are alive and well in my mind and they can be no one else and no one else can be them.

All in all, Where is book two, Pure? I want to read it now, lol. *^_^* Very entertaining to the very core of me.
