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.
Am tot auzit despre cartea asta atatea opinii pozitive, asa ca am inceput-o ieri. Rezultatul? Nu am fost impresionat. Deloc. O copie dupa Academia Vampirilor, cu mici modificari… Povestea se centreaza in jurul Alexandriei, o tanara half-blood, care a fugit impreuna cu mama ei din siguranta academiei. Dupa ce acestea sunt atacate iar mama ei este atacata si omorata de catre niste daimoni… Aceasta este dusa inapoi la Covenant iar acolo poate fi ori dusa ca si servitoare, sau sa reia orele, desi cum a ramas in spate, Aiden se ocupa sa o puna la zi cu orele de antrenament. Intre cei doi se naste o legatura, iar ei se simt tot mai legati unul de celalt. In peisaj apare tatal vitreg al lui Alex, care vrea sa o ia sa stea cu el… dintr-un motiv. Oare care sa fie acesta? Dragostea interzisa intre Alex si Aiden deoarece el este un hematoi iar ea o half-blood, iar legaturile dintre aceste doua rase este interzisa.
Va reusi Alex sa intre inapoi la academie? Ce se va alege de relatia dintre Alex si Aiden? Care este secretul pentru care Lucian vrea sa o duca acasa pe fata lui vitrega?
ASEMANARI CU ACADEMIA VAMPIRILOR:
Aproapre tot, daca cautati originalitate, cartea aceasta o puteti exclude de pe lista voastra. In primul rand e tipurile de rase, care au aici un nume schimat.
HEMATOI/PURI = MOROI in AV. Poseda puterea celor patru elemente. Aer, Apa, Foc si Pamant.
HALF-BLOOD „CORCITURILE” = DHAPIRII in AV. Sunt luptatorii care apara aceasta lume. Deoarece nu pot fi transformati in Daimoni.
DAIMONI = STRIGOII in AV. Acestia sunt cei rai. Care ii vaneaza pe Hematoi si pe Corcituri, dar in special pe Hematoi datorita eterului. Acesti „strigoi” nu se alimenteaza cu sange ci cu eter. Spre diferenta de strigoii din AV acestia odata transformati tot mai au puterile celor 4 elemente.
RELATIA DINTRE ALEX SI AIDEN: La fel ca in AV relatia interzisa dintre profesor-elev o regasim si aici. Aici se mai aplica si regula in care Hematoii si Corciturile nu se pot impreuna.
LEA: Lea este versiunea lui Mia din AV. Tipa nesuferita care ii face viata un calvar lui Alex. Asemenea Miei, Lea isi pierde familia intr-un atac al daimonirlor.
“Hey,” I reached out and tapped the hand that rested next to my left leg. “you are–”
The hand that I tapped reached up and clasped mine. I froze as he threaded his finders through mine. “I’m what?”
Beautiful. Kind. Patient. Perfect. I said none of those things. Instead, I stared at his fingers, wondering if he knew he was holding my hand. “You’re always so….”
His thumb moved over the top of my hand. The balm made his fingers cool and smooth. “What?”
I looked up, and I was immediately snared. His stare, his soft touch along my hand was doing very strange things. I felt hot and dizzy, like I’d been out in the sun all day. All I could think about was how his hand felt on mine. Then, what his hand would feel like on other parts. I shouldn’t be thinking that at all.
Aiden was a pure.”
Povestea continua in: Pure
There is need. And then there is Fate…
Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn’t exactly awesome–especially when Alexandria’s „other half” is everywhere she goes. Seth’s in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom–so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do–and sacrifice–for her.
When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies–lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon… and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn’t blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude… or killing her.
When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.
