Teaser Tuesday (5): Half-Blood (Covenant #1)


Teaser Tuesday: Half-Blood (Covenant #1)
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do as following: 
·Grab your current read 
·
Open to a random page 
·
Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page 
·
Be careful not to include any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others.


Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publication Date: 2011
Pages: 304
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Book Description 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.






Teaser: 
     "Okay. I'm ready to move onto something else, like practicing with knives or defense against the dark arts. Cool things."
    "Did you just quote Harry Potter?
    " I grinned. "Maybe I did."" (Location 1617, Kindle Edition)


I love Jennifer Armentrout for the Lux Series, and while I'm waiting for Onyx I figured I'd dive into the Covenant Series! Plus, I feel like I've been on a mythology reading binge lately and I might as well keep the roller coaster going. 


What's your guy's teaser this week? Leave a link in the comments and I'll be sure to stop by!
