For Alexandria, being a Half-Blood is tough. After witnessing the murder of her mother by Daimons - what one might compare to a blood-sucking vampire - she is touted back to a prestigious school known as The Covenant. As the child of a mortal and a Greek Pure-Blood, she must work hard to catch up with the other students at the school. A school that trains its kids to fight, and kill, Daimons. When Alexandria begins one-on-one training with swoon-worthy Aiden, a Pure-Blood, it becomes apparent that kicking Daimon butt is no picnic. That, plus the threat of Daimon attacks and startling revelations about Alexandria's destiny, serves up a satisfying literary slice of hot romance, delightful drama and awesome adventure.
I originally bought this book over Christmas to read on my Kindle. (You can purchase it on both Kindle and Nook, by the way) It was a really fun book to read, and there is a prequel available, Daimon. If you enjoyed The Vampire Academy Series, by Rachelle Mead, you will definitely love Half-Blood, by the very talented Jennifer L. Armentrout.
