Imagine being avulsed from life as you know it, then witnessing your only surviving kin die before your eyes, being chased by blood-sucking fiends, being pulled back to your previous life but are going to be forced into a lifetime of servitude, then falling for the one guy that when people finds out, will sign your death slip, then finding out your kin is actually not dead and has turned into a monster and she is currently out for your blood, and then told you're actually not only who you actually thought you were, you're actually something else too?

Sucks, right? But that's basically the everyday life of Alexandria "Alex" Andros, the tragic heroine Armentrout saw fit to torture... LOL, nah, kidding. Even tho her life sucked balls big time, Alex was a tough-assed, witty-tongued, snarky-sassy attitude heroine who dealt with everything head-on. She was definitely a pleasure to read.

I thought that the story was super fast-paced, Alex was always either up to some mischief, or trouble comes stalking and biting her in the ass. So much action and suspense, and the steamy hot romance between her and Aiden! Something's always happening, be it a good hot making out session, fending off daimons for their lives, daimons infiltrating the Covenant, those L.O.L witty banters and arguments between Alex and the world, there's just no time to do anything than to flip those crazy pages.

Now on to that endearing male heroine of ours, shall we? Aiden St. Delphi. Storm grey eyes that can turn silver when experiencing any strong emotions, which most of the time has Alex in the picture. Intense gaze. Fights like a god. Moves like those Twilight vamps. Reclusive and brooding. The triple P's - passionate, protective and possessive when it comes to Alex. And what does that scream? PERFECT HERO MATERIAL!


The side characters were very supportive. Caleb, being the brother that she never had, was very protective and understanding of Alex, always there to lend a hand or a shoulder or an ear when she can no longer bottle everything up in her heart; Lea, the typical archnemesis, was absolutely drop-dead gorgeous and very bitchy; Marcus, Alex's uncle, and Daecon actually grew on me as the story progressed; Seth...This one's dangerous (even the pures are terrified of him, that kind of dangerous) and a potential love interest..Hehe, can't wait to read more on that in the next book, PURE!

All in all, you do not want to miss this book.
