[Thursday’s book recommendation] Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

thursday's book recommendation icon

So I am actually in the middle of reading the fourth book of the series, Apollyon. I find myself unable to write a proper review for the books because I am unusually excited. I don’t get excited very often because I am strict and bitch enough and I don’t allow myself to enjoy a book when there are plot holes or bad writing style. Well, thank god Jennifer is amazing and her books are close to flawless.

There are five books, already published.

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.


Along with two extra novels.

Reasons why you have to read this book.

1) It’s written by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Do I really have to say more? She is obviously the Queen of paranormal romance and her name should be the only reason someone has to read the series.

2) Great use of greek mythology. If you’re a fan of Greece and the twelve gods, then you will probably adore the book.

3) Aiden and Seth are both book boyfriends material and they’re not kidding. And yes, Alex is a very very decent female lead.

4) Original, interesting story.

5) Remarkable humour and enjoyable scenes.

6) Unbelievable plot twists and cliffhungers! Thank god, all books are published.

Do you really need more?
