Half-Blood (Covenant #1)
by Jennifer L. Armentrout


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.

Aiden St. Delphi

I would always remember reading Half-Blood because this was the day I met. Such a dashing Sentinel. I've always been a fan of JLA's works. I love Daemon Black in the Lux Series, I love Cam in Wait for You and of course, I found myself in love with Aiden St. Delphi.

When I try to remember why I liked him, I always don't remember the specifics about why I liked him. So I decided to read a few snippets from the past books, and I finally remembered why I loved him from Half-Blood up to Apollyon.

I remembered how I loved him in Half-Blood. He was just so mysterious and stoic. I'm weak with mysterious kind of guys so it was a bit easy to really fall for him at first. But it wasn't just falling in love with him in the moment kind. Aiden was more than just the usual main love interest out there. He completely took my attention in the first book. Then in the next books, he took my breath away. He was more than just a character. I loved that he was constantly changing for the better. He was mysterious at first, then sweet the next, then caring, then selfless then... ohmygahhhddd :3 I think its hard to describe just how much I like Aiden. So I'm just going to leave you to read it and see for yourself.

MY REVIEW: 

Very adorable love story, awesome set of characters, a heroine that's so admirable, two guys that will sure to make you torn. And awesomeness at its fineness. Jennifer, I bow to your awesome superpower writing. (Half-Blood) -- Jules Bookshelf

SHORT INTERVIEW:

For JLA – Half-Blood was your first published book. Does it hold a special place for you or do you wish you could have a chance to re-write it?  

Half-Blood definitely holds a special place for me, and I wouldn’t want to re-write it. I’m happy with the book.

For Leon – You defended Alex and advocated for her to stay and be trained. If you’d know she was gonna be such a pain in your ass, would have do that again. Why?

Oh yeah, Alex needed to be trained, but I would have advocated for an attitude adjustment along with the training.

For Aiden – That day that Alex meets Seth for the first time, did you notice anything then that could have warned you of what was to come?

Everything about him warned me.

For Seth - Did you know that Alex was not impressed with your name when she met you? She thought you should have a more Greek name like Apollo or something. Turn around is fair play. Your thoughts on her name?

She’s named after a boy.
