I'm in LOVE with this book!

This book is AMAZING. There are no dull moments in here people. None. It's intense from the very beginning. I love Alex. Despite all the horrible things she's been through, she can still laugh and be snarky. She's strong and courageous. She doesn't back down from a fight (even when she should). She doesn't understand the decisions of those around her or what they're keeping from her. Alex has been away from the Covenant for 3 years. When she returns, Aiden (swoon!) is in charge of her training. Aiden is different from the other pures. He's kind, patient, and he doesn't look down on her like the others. Only problem is, he's forbidden. And who doesn't want what they can't have?! This world of pures, halfs, and daimons will suck you in and hold you.

This book is very similar to that of Rachelle Mead's Vampire Academy... Its similar concept-wise right from th begining (the whole pures/halfs/diamons versus Mead's moroi/dhampirs/strigoi, not to mention the elemental connections and super cool boarding schools where they are trained to kill). It gets just plain insulting though once you get to the part in the office... god you could almost literally substitue the words mentioned from the book with strigoi, rose and dimitri and you would have Vampire Academy. Its otherwise well written and interesting but it looses a ton of points in my book for being a stolen idea. I mean, come on. Thats just pathetic. If this book interests you, trust me, go buy Meads series, its much better written as well in my opinion.

If youre looking for a cheaper version and a stolen idea this is the book for you. Im wishing I wouldn't have bought this now if only out of loyalty.

    Just boring - lots of talk and no action

    Started slow and ended...worse. I had to force myself to read the first half because nothing happened. I thought I'd stick with it because it had to pick up at some point. Unfortunately, it didn't. There's a lot of talk about the danger of offending the pures, but that's about all we got to see, lots of talk and no action, and that applies to the entire book. At some point I found the heroine, Alexandria, childish, immature and downright unbelievable. The plot was weak and the book is very, very short. Not worth the price.

    To Maddie

    Don't post "There's a new camp" without saying WHAT it's the new camp FOR. You might want to add that it's Camp Half-Blood or whatever this is! ~Stan&#9786
