Andy | 14623 comments Starting with Book 1!

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals--well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.

Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is.

If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

haha yeah sometimes it bugs me a little but it definitely helps out if I can't get the audio, physical, or ebook.

Half-blood
Chapters 1-4: it's been awhile since I've read these but I remember enjoying them. I definitely love the spin off series lol. This was my first Jennifer Armentrout book and now she's one of my favorite authors. (view spoiler)

Andy | 14623 comments Alaina (hope you see this on here lol)- what do think if we read the first two of the power series (spin off to this series) and then we can pause and pick up with the third when we both find it? I might be able to get a copy when I go home for the holidays or from my bf's library.

How could you forget Seth?? lol. He was my absolute favorite in the Covenant series and, in my opinion, his series is just so much more than its predecessor. Cannot wait to hear what you think of it!
