"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My selection for this week is:
Half-Blood (Covenant,#1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publication Date: October 18th 2011
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads:
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.
What I think:It's the first time I do a WoW about a book I have already read for quite some time now (thanks to the amazing people over at Spencer Hill Press) but I just couldn't resist to say how much I eagerly expect to get a finished copy of Half-Blood in my hands!It's one of the best books I read this year that noone should miss and a series that will become favorite to many.Believe me!
