Half-Bloods aren't so bad


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


I don't get what the flower reference in the cover is about. I might've missed something. It's been awhile a few days since I finished this book but I will try to remember it.

Alex Andros is quite the kickass fighter with special powers because she is a half-blood.

There is a god who she has a big crush on, Aiden, and he's a pure blood. Hematoi's descend from the unions of gods and mortals. It is forbidden for them to be together as a rule, because the gods said so, but we don't see or hear them. As is usual they always get a bad rap lol

Lexie aka Alex expected to be reprimanded for her 3 year absence but is allowed back into the Covenant. Her stepfather Lucian is now a high political figure but she has no feelings for him.

Her mother, Rachelle, had taken Lexie and left everything behind because of something the oracle said about her daughter being the Apollyon when she turns 17. I don't know why that would be a bad thing either.

Aiden offers to train her in defensive combat against the Daimons. When Lexie finds out through a series of events that her mother is alive and is a Daimon, she has to stop her mother from killing others so she makes it her job to kill her. It's pretty sad and brave and unheard of to have to kill your own mother and she fails the first time. Rachelle kidnaps her and takes her back to Miami instead.

My rating: 

This review is a JLA reading challenge submission

  1. Oh my gosh, I loved this book. This series get better with every book. Alex is the best kick ass heroin I've ever read, and I thought her name was Alexandra not Lexie. Anyway, I don't think there is any reference in the book for the cover, they are just some abstract patterns. I can't wait to see what you think about Pure.
