Waiting on Wednesday

                      I hate waiting...
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog post by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights releases we're eagerly awaiting.

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 sooooo can't wait for this one! It sounds totally amazing! Bummed the release date was pushed back! Still have the prequel to read on my Kindle that I might save for closer to this release!

  1. Cool! I picked this for my WoW post a few weeks ago too, I'm sooo excited about it! It sounds amazing and I've heard so many good things about it from fellow bloggers who read the ARC! I'll read the prequel closer to the release date of Half-Blood as well, otherwise the waiting for the book will be even more unbearable! I can't wait to meet Aiden, he seems so swoon-worthy!

    Great choice!

  2. Great choice! I had not heard of this before but it sounds great!
