Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It hosts our most anticipated books that haven't been released yet but are so very worthy of being pre-ordered. This week I'm waiting on....
Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Covenant #1)
Release Date: October 18, 2011
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.
First off we start out with a simple but beautiful cover. Beautiful isn't it? *wiggles eyebrows* If you have read Daimon, which is the short story prequel, then you were probably as breathless and aching to get your hands on Miss Armentrout's debut novel too.
This book adds a whole new meaning to the word "half-blood". I read the Percy Jackson series and really liked it but this....this (even with the Greek Mythology as its background) is nothing like it. It has a mixture of daimons, purebloods, forbidden love and a kick but character who has already been through Hell and back. I am soooo excited for this release!! :D
