Summary

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.

great story, annoying narrator

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great story and characters but the narrators voice was very irratating. love the story line and will listen to the other books. Shame about the narrator, when she did male voices it was very croaky for all charachters and irratating. Sounds like a frog

Surprisingly great 👍

Pleasantly surprised by the plot, although there were too many shifts of demons for me.

Great story line and characters. I am loving this author, I have read lots of them

I’ve been listening to a lot of book from this author and the person reading makes such a difference but again I cannot fault it

Fun read

This book is a good example for the new trend of YA literature. A strong young woman- a teenager- coming to grips with her powers and the traditions she grew up with and fights to find her place in the world.
Good female characters, interesting plot, fun read.

Thrilling

I am a huge fan of sagas as Hunger games, vampire academy and so on, but I also like Greek mythology. The composition of ancient history and modern times, gives you a good saga to binge on. I’m going straight to the next book

Nice gem

I don’t know what I was expecting but when I started I couldn’t put it down. I am a fan! It was really engaging and gripped my attention. There were no slow areas the pace was excellent. Looking forward to part two.

A decent start to a series

I enjoyed listening to this book. The plot was engaging and there was a bit of depth to most of the characters. The romance simmered along nicely without being overly graphic/ inappropriately detailed for a YA audience. The narrator was excellent. Overall, it was a decent start to a series. (Unfortunately, the last book of the series was a huge disappointment and I'm not sure I can actually recommend the series on that basis).
