Thank you, Uma! <3 If you loved Vampire Academy, you're going to love this one as well! Strong Dimitri vibes when it comes to Aiden! ;)

♛ Garima ♛ I wanted to read this but then I checked reviews and people complained about it is complete rip-off of VA so I didn't bother with it. How did you like it? Wasn't is like re-reading VA? Your review confirms the same...

Michelle OMG I thought I was the only who saw a LOT of VA here! I had a hard time reading it because of it but then you just get used to it lol.

Lol that's exactly what happens, you eventually get used to it and simply enjoy the ride! And Aiden. And Seth. And Caleb. So many hot guys! :P :D

I thoroughly enjoyed it! Well at first it felt like a VA copy, regarding the world-building and the characters as well, but the greek mythology made things better, and judging by the next books' premises the story will follow a different path! My biggest problem was Alex, Rose is tame compared to her! :P

Amanda Great review! I didn't read VA so I loved this one without any of that baggage. Aiden. I love Aiden. And he only gets better and better. Sigh.

Isn't it weird how the name Aiden reminds you of Adrian? :P


message 9: by Dia (new)

Dia Dimitri YESS <3 I love VA series and the half covenant is similar to that :)
Great review,Kat :D

♛ Garima ♛ Oh my God, and here I was frustrated with Rose!


message 11: by Marguerite (M) (new)

Marguerite (M) Despite the obvious similarities with VA, I want to try this one. But I don't know if I can suffer an anwful main character, I like them awesome and smart !


Laurie –A Court of Books– Yes, we agree on the VA similarities ^^ But the series gets its own path from the second book forward :)

And please count me in for Vice president, Alex is a brat.

I confess, I ended this series crying like heartbroken teenager :'(


message 13: by anjuli (new)

anjuli As usual good review :). I had similar issues. I'd read VA series and really enjoyed it. Then, I read this and I was kinda bummed cuz of the way too strong similarities but, not enough oomf. I did like Aiden though. The LT you're referring to is not in a traditional sense. I was vary as well cuz I do not like them in general. You'll see as the series progresses. I still have to finish the last book in this series. I just grew tired of it. I still liked Dmitri and Rose dynamics a whole lot better.

Have you read her Lux series??? Oooh that one is delicious :D.

Victoria ❦ THIS IS ONE OF MY FAV SERIES IN THE ENTIRE WORLD

Thank you, Anjuli! <3 Yes I've read Lux, it's one of my all-time favorite series!! I'm truly relieved, I hate love triangles with a loathing passion! Rose and Dimitri are relationship goals! <3

I am so glad you love it this much, Victoria! :)

Good to know that, I don't mind the similarities but JLA has the potential for great, original things! :D Welcome to the club!

I certainly hope Alex will grow up throughout the series, annoying main characters can ruin a great story! I do suggest you give it a try, though! ;) <3

If you were frustrated with Rose, you'll want to murder Alex! :P

Thank you, Angel! <3 Dimitri set the standards very high, I have loved him for years but he still makes me melt!

Jilly Great review, sweetheart! I'm not a fan of the VA series because I hated Rose, but JA does write some great stories. :)

Thank you, dear Jilly! <3 Rose could be really immature, especially during the first books, but Alex is way worse! JA's Lux series is amazing! <3


message 18: by Jilly (new)

Jilly Yeah, I'm a big fan of the Lux series. I would cougar it up for Damon.

Tamara Your reviews are always so convincing. I haven't read Vampire Academy so I may not suffer from knowing the plot. But I shall read this!

You're so sweet, Tamara! <3 Thank you! If you haven't read VA, you're definitely going to enjoy it! ;)


Elise ✘ a.k.a Ryder's Pet ✘ Terrific review, Katerina :) I gave up on this series as soon as I realized that there would be a love triangle and my team would loose :O


Kate (beautifulbookland) Oh Aiden *dreamy sigh*

Thank you, love! <3 Lol being on the losing side of a love triangle really sucks!


littleliterarybird I found the similarities so annoying haha. Only because I love the VA series, but I have heard that the Covenant series does pick up its own ideas further down in the series :)

I certainly hope it does, it was a little unsettling this feeling of deja-vu!

Rbooks Wonderful review sweetie<3 I hope I can read the series soon. All the books so little time.*sighs* Plus I've currently been obsessed with anime... OMG IT'S SO CUTE AND ADORABLE I LOVE IT SO MUCH, AND I FOUND JAPANESE HUSBANDS*laughs like the psychopath I am*


message 38: by Yasmeen (new)

Yasmeen (semi-hiatus) AIDEN IS SO AMAZING I CANT.

at first, i didn't really like half blood because of the similarities between it and VA but when i read on, it turned out to be completely different. Alex was so annoying but she really grows throughout the story, specially in the fourth book. You'll find the other books more addictive, i couldn't put it down (not sure if that's a good thing though since i finished the first three books during finals). All in all, this series is amazing (how could it not be, it's JLA)

You're so right Yasmeen, JLA is a freaking queen! I know she won't disappoint me in the next installments! I can't wait to see where this series is going, and I need more Aiden! <3 (well I also have the bad habit of reading during exams :D)

He's a sweetheart! <3 There are many similarities, but you probably enjoyed it most since you haven't read VA! ;)
