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.

This book surprised me a little. I wasn't altogether sure that I was enjoying it at first and a lot of it seemed awfully familiar. But by the time I reached the end I was ready for the next one.
As predictable as a lot of the story was, there were twists and turns and I kept reading. And I want to keep reading.
I wasn't sure about the main character, but she definitely grew on me. I loved the fact that she felt pain. I loved that when she returned she couldn't just slip back in with no problems and that she hurt all over. It made it a much more believable storyline.
