Teaser Tuesday (10): Half-Blood by Jennifer L Armentrout + Beat the Heat Day 15

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the 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 SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 

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. 

Description taken from Goodreads


"None of them expected me to run from them, but that's what I did."
-page 7

"'You show amazing strength,' he murmured, stirring the hair around my ear.
I forced my eyes open.  'Oh...I'm just saving all of this up for years of therapy later.'"
-page 161 

Beat the Heat Day 15! 
I'm slowing down, guys.  It's horrible, really.  I managed to finish Losing It and I started this book here, but I just didn't feel like reading:
 Hopefully, I'll get out of this slump soon.
