I think I just found my new FAVORITE book! My Review of Half Blood 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.
I went into this book knowing I was gonna love it. People have been gushing about it like crazy! And heck yeah, they were right! So right! I actually read Obsidian (another book by this AMAZING author) first and really really liked it. So I had no question in my mind that I wasn't gonna like this book as well. In fact, I might actually like this book a bit more! My review of Obsidian had one major point... I was totally head over heals for Daemon. Well.. hate to say it Daemon.. But Aiden St. Delphi might give ya a bit of competition! At least in my book he does! ;) I'm a total Aiden fan now! Sign me up for the Half Blood Legion! My only regret is that I waited so long to check out this author and these great books. They've become absolute favorites of mine that I plan to read over and over! 5 stars for this one for sure!!!
