Am auzit multe despre aceasta serie si avand in vedere ca am primit minunatia aia de Kindle am zis de ce nu? Asa ca am inceput sa citesc Half-Blood si oricat de cliseic ar suna asta, nu am lasat-o din mana. Efectiv ma culcam la ora 1 si ma trezeam dimineata (la pranz :D) si o luam iarasi si citeam din ea. 
Am auzit ca este oarecum copiata dupa Academia Vampirilor si nici nu am vrut sa aud de ea la inceput, dar mi-am schimbat parerea. Unele personaje si intamplari se aseamana, insa povestea in sine este diferita si imi place atat de mult.
In vremurile de demult, zeii Olympului s-au imperecheat cu muritorii creeand asa numiti Pure-bloods. Cand un Pure si un muritor au un copil, acela e un Half-Blood. Asa ca eroina noastra, Alex Andros. Insa exista si asa numitii daimons. Creaturi malefice, odata pure-bloods care iti rapesc chiar esenta fiintei. Acesti daimons vaneaza pure-bloods... Unul dintre ei fiind mama lui Alex.
Deoarece mama ei a fugit de la Covenant impreuna cu ea, Alex incearca sa o protejeze, insa cand este omorata de un daimon, Alex il ucide si fuge, sperand sa supravietuiasca. Este gasita in final de o trupa de Santinele, printre care si tipul de care se indragstise cand avea 14 ani, Aiden. Insa lumea lor, sa te indragostesti de un pur este o crima si daca s-ar descoperi asta, Alex ar ajunge o sclava fara vointa proprie. Asa ca ajunsa iarasi la scoala, cu Aiden ca antrenor si cu barfele plutind in jurul ei, Alex trebuie sa se tina tare pe picioare, altfel va pierde ceea ce pretuiese ea cel mai mult. Controlul asupra propriei persoane.
Este mult de explicat si inteles, insa odata ce te-ai prins cum stau lucrurile, povestea te prinde, atitudinea vesela si rebela a lui Alex te face sa te indragostesti de ea si Aiden... cu ochii lui argintii si remarcile sarcastice.... Oh my :3
Cartea asta este absolut superba, amuzanta, intensa, misterioasa si nu mai putin de 3 ori am vrut sa dansez de fericire cand citeam. Daca nu aveti probleme cu engleza... o recomand din toata inima. It is worth it <3

Citate:

"Alex?" I turned around, figuring he'd changed his mind and was going to order me to see Marcus in the morning and fess up to my bad behaviour. "Yeah ?" He brushed a lock of dark hair off his forehead and flashed that lopsided smile. "I remember you" I scrunched up my face. "What?" The grin increased to a full smile. And... oh, man. He had dimples. The air in my lungs died. "I remember you, too" 

Alex: Okay. I’m ready to move onto something else, like practicing with knives or defense against the dark arts. Cool things.
Aiden: Did you just quote Harry Potter?

“Ales: “How come you smile when you knock me down?”
Aiden: “It’s the little things that make me happy.” 

“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.”
