The Hematoi descend from the union 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 becomes servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she might 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.
Yet another awesome school-based book only featuring a new type of half-blood when it comes to gods and mortals. I'm all for books that involve unique supernatural beings, and Alexandria sounds like a girl who will kick some serious butt! I'd like to get my hands on the prequel, Daimon, if possible! If anyone has read Daimon, please tell me your thoughts. ^_^
