Daimon (Covenant 0.5)- Half-Blood (Covenant #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

108603999680718

BOOK:  Daimon (Covenant 0.5)– Half-Blood (Covenant #1)

MY RATING FOR IT: 4 stars

SYNOPSIS

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.

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

Like a good little reader that I am , I started with the prequel of the first of the Covenant books , cause I have heard that it was a good introduction for everything related to the Covenant world and Alexandria’s world too.

It was a good choice cause it gave me better understanding to where Alex was coming from and what she went through before the start of the first book.

Alex is not a normal girl, she’s not even a human girl, she is a HALF BLOOD (half human half Hematoi) and she feels completely alienated from the human world she now lives in. her mother took her from the covenant 3 year ago and nothing has been the same since. She doesn’t know who or what are they running from and her mom, though a loving mother is very secretive about the reasons why they had to leave the only place they ever knew as home, the place that Alex loved and where she was doing her training.

They live around mortal now and she tries to live like any normal 17 years old  teenage, but after sneaking out one night with her friends and yet another disappointing night ,her world changes completely and she finds herself alone and  on the run from Daimons, the very thing she is supposed to be trained to hunt.

After that first sneak peek, we get to know right away that Alex will be a strong character cause under a lot of difficult circumstances she keeps being resilient, but the Diamons are too much for an alone and untrained girl, BUUUUUUT here comes the loooovley swoon worthy Aiden!!!!

He was Alex’s first crush when she was a teenage girl living at the covenant, he’s a pure though and pure does don’t mingle with Half’s, that’s a big NO NO!!!

“ALEX: “How come you smile when you knock me down?”

AIDEN: “It’s the little things that make me happy.”

I keep forgetting how much i like Jennifer L. Armentrout’s writing, I mean it’s not Obsidian which is one of my Y.A. all-time fav, but the characters where just as engaging as if it was (maybe a little bit less banter)

WELL THERES WAS SOME BANTER !!

Was your mom a gardener?’ I asked innocently.
‘What?’ Ren’s mouth hung open slightly.
‘Because a face like yours belongs planted on the ground.”

“Whatever! Go save a dolphin or something!”

He whirled around. “It’s a whale, Alex, a whale! That’s what I’m interested in saving.”

I threw up my arms. “What’s wrong with saving dolphins?”

I’m super in love with Aiden and Alex sometimes made feel like I wanted to hit he, but just sometimes
I CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT IS GOING TO GO DOWN WITH SETH , THAT LOOKS COMPLETLY PROMISISNG !!!

“I don’t want to know about love.’

‘But you should, my child. You need to know about love. The things people will do for love. All truths come down to love, do they not? One way or another, they do. See, there is a difference between love and need. Sometimes, what you feel is immediate and without rhyme or reason.’ She sat up a little straighter. ‘Two people see each across a room or their skin brushes. Their souls recognize the person as their own. It doesn’t need time to figure it. The soul always knows… whether it’s right or wrong.”

ohhhh and the best friend was a sweetheart !!

I just loved this series , I’m defo going to keep at it cause I’m a bit OCD and can’t stand not to finish a series once I started it …
another great book by a great author …

Vain – Part One-Two and Three by Deborah Bladon

VAIN

BOOK: Vain Series – Part One-Two and Three by Deborah Bladon

MY RATING  FOR IT: 4 STARS

SYNOPSIS

Sex.

That’s all Noah Foster wanted when Alexa Jackson showed up at his apartment.

After returning from a semester in Paris, Alexa is back in her hometown of Boston and looking for anything but the drama that surrounds Noah. He’s intense, gifted, famous and a bastard through and through.

Alexa doesn’t take life too seriously. Noah doesn’t do calm and easygoing.

Their unexpected meeting sets them both on a course towards an unlikely connection. As Noah embarks on a journey to teach school teacher Alexa the ways of his dark and mysterious world, she’s fighting her own demons and the memory of a stranger in Paris.

When Alexa’s past suddenly becomes her present, she’s forced to face the reality of whether the passionate moments she’s spent in Noah’s arms, in his bed, and in his life mean anything to him, or has it all been in vain?

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT 

First I have to tell you that this are novellas (3 of them )  , so you have to buy them all or you get with a monster cliffhanger.

I’m very surprised because I didn’t have much faith in them but I really like them .. like a lot , the start of the story was kind of in your face!  but it got my attention immediately, I mean when you start  a book with  a line like ….

“you are staring at my Dick…

…I am . I Can’t even deny it.”

Theres nothing to do but to pay attention and enjoy the ride…

The story is about Alexa and Noah, she is a teacher who has  just come back from a semester in Paris , and is escaping a bad relationship.

NOAH AND ALEXA

she is helping a friend with a delivery , and when they open the door Noah,the naked man shows up.

Noah is a majorly Known photographer (he likes to shoot naked  women body’s ,while he is in the buff… part of his process)

They meet and he is  beautiful as he is an  asshole , but he sees something in her that makes him want to hire her to take her pictures, and that’s where the real fun begins.

The story is very hot and very sweet at times, I didn’t like the secondary characters that much do…

But the Alexa and Noah couple was amazing…. every book ends in a big Cliffy so make shure to buy all 3 of them.

I don’t want to give much of the plot away , so as my finishing words I’ll  just Say that these books ( Vain, Ruin, Expossed, Obsessed etc. ) have a reading order wich a clearly did not take in to consideration when I started this one , but I don’t think that it was a big deal , besides some side character everything was about the main couple so nothing was lost.

All in all I found it to be  great read and I’m definitely buying the other books from this author .
