“Okay. I’m ready to move onto something else, like practicing with knives or defense against the dark arts. Cool things.”
“Did you just quote Harry Potter?” 

Summary

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.

Personal Experiences 

Dystopia worlds intrigue me beyond anything else ever does. I really love how the author puts people in a situation that could happen and makes them survive. It makes people believe we are immortal. Although you are only immortal until somebody forgets you.

Half-Blood was an extraordinary novel similar to Dan Well’s Partials. It had a sci-fi element called daimons (pronounced demons) that had me questioning why I was reading this book because I’m not a fan of sci-fi. But overall it was magnificent. I loved the training element and the mixed romance. And it was realistic in a way because the main character was having identity issue.

Quotes

“So? What are you going to do about it? Throw your mashed potatoes at me? I’m consumed by terror.” 


“I was gonna be super pissed in the afterlife if I died a virgin in this crap hole.”


“How come you smile when you knock me down?”
“It’s the little things that make me happy.” 


“You better have had a baby, killed someone, or slept with a pure. Those are your three options. Anything less is unsuitable.”
