Audiobook Review: Half-Blood

Title: Half-Blood
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Release Date: October 18, 2011

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.

Weekly Snippet

I'm not sure how long I'm going to continue this series. We'll see. This week, I decided to just do a screenshot, since I apparently can't be bothered to check for typos when I'm copying things over by hand lol.

This is a tiny snippet from my project that's currently in revision, Spy Project. Let me know what you think in the comments. Should I continue with this feature?

Discussion: ACOTAR

I want to talk about all the things ACOTAR. Because we all remember how much I loved ACOMAF, and with ACOWAR coming out later this year... well yea.

If you're not in the know, I am talking about A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J Maas. This will be a very spoilery discussion for both the first and second book. So beware. If you haven't read both, you might not want to continue.

So. Let me first link you to my original review for ACOTAR, here.

Weekly Snippet

Welcome to the Weekly Snippet, a new feature on my blog where I show you a small excerpt from one of my WIPs. This is the first time I have a feature on my blog that focuses fully on writing instead of reading, so we'll see how it goes haha.

This week, the snippet is from Iron Curse, which you can find online here.

Cara shivered when she thought back to her sister—bright and beautiful, powerful and protective—murdered by those half blood abominations. She choked back a tear. No, she hadn't cried over Talia in a century, and she wasn't about to start now just because of a missing petulant little girl.

The brat needed to be found, and she knew without a doubt that Jifanya pay for what Fildor and Vantaria had failed to do—stop the wizards from existing.

Let me know if you like this feature. I can share more of my WIPs in the future.
