Thank you to Hodder / Bookbridgr for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review
Okay a certain Mr Black holds a special place in my heart for his stunning gorgeous broodiness but he is gonna have to budge up and let the delectable kick ass Aiden St Delphi in.
Half-Blood is the first book the Covenant series, set in a world where the Hematoi, descendants of Gods and Mortals live in secret amongst the normal mortals, they are the pure bloods, and the child of a mortal and pure blood is called a half blood, with me so far?
Alex is a half blood, and half bloods are way down the pecking order, they have two options in life, become servants of the pures or train to become Sentinel's who hunt and kill daimons. Alex was training at the Covenant but three years ago she left with her mother but following an unfortunate incident with daimons where her mother is killed she finds herself back at the Covenant where her uncle is now in charge and not keen to have her there, she must train hard to catch up on what she has missed but things don't go exactly to plan.
Training with Aiden in close quarters, Alex becomes aware of their attraction but it is forbidden for them to be together. Alex has to hide her feelings and concentrate on learning her new skills otherwise she will end up at the bottom of the pile or worse she will be on the radar of the daimons who will hunt her till the ends of the earth.
Half-Blood is a great fast moving young adult novel, it is the perfect blend of sass, action, romance and the characters are well written and all serve a purpose, Aiden is especially delightful, Jennifer is totally the mistress of conjuring hot guys!
I'm looking forward to reading Pure the next book in the series and I'm happy to see there are lots of books in this series.
