Warning: This review will be an excited rambling of a fangirl. 
You have been warned…

Could you kill the one you love?
The Hematoi descend from the union 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.

You will kill the ones you love.
Fate had been right about that...”
Once upon a time, the gods walked among humans.  They had children with humans, who came to call themselves the Hematoi.  The child of two Hematois are pure-bloods and have godly powers – and godly views of themselves. 
The offspring of a Hematoi and a human is a half-blood.  They have no powers and only two choices: to become servants for the pure-blood, with no free-will or thoughts... 
Or they can become Sentinels and hunt the Hematoi who have renounced the gods and taken to stealing aether, the godly essence.  Daimons. 
Alexandria Andros has just returned to the Covenant after her mother took her and ran.  Alex doesn't know why they left.  All she knows is the one she cares about most is gone and she has to return to her kind – to the Covenant, so she can train to kill the daimons that hunt her. 
Of course, her becoming a Sentinel depends on her catching up on the years she missed – and on the gorgeous pure-blood Aiden St Delphi. 
The main rule when you're a half-blood is this: Never fall for a pure-blood.  They're untouchable. 
Unfortunately, Aiden makes sticking to that rule damn near impossible...
Once again caught up in the power plays, politics and dangers of the Covenant, Alex must find out why her mother left before the secret destroys everything.  And that reason might not be the only shock that hits her, now that she's returned to her own world...
Have I mentioned how much I adore Jennifer Armentrout?  Only a million times?  Huh?  So few?  Well, I best sort that out, hadn't I?  I freaking love Jennifer Armentrout.  And I'm seriously peeved that I left reading Half-Blood for so long.  Why?  Because I freaking loved it.  It was so, so amazing.  It was funny, witty, so many layers of awesome, addictiveness and so very fast-paced.  I read the whole book in a single sitting, completely ignoring any company we may have had (rude, but when a book's this good you just don't care) and even the chocolate that was on the table.  And yes, it really was that good.  
I'm gonna start my crazy ramblings with Alex.  She was awesome – kickass, but also really untrained, strong as nails, but very vulnerable, funny and witty and just brilliant.  I loved her in Daimon and I loved her even more in Half-Blood.  I just loved all of her – how she isn't perfect, how she doesn't let the deaths destroy her but also doesn't just jump up and get over it right away.  She has to fight to carry on, but she does carry on, and I love her for that.  Almost as much as I love her for her snarky wit and sarcastic remarks!
And as for Aiden, our forbidden love...  Oh, yummy.  He is gorgeous.  I didn't think I could love anyone as much as I love Daemon Black, Jennifer's other hottie, but I love Aiden almost as much.  He's Daemon's complete opposite: more serious, less snarky; he has a really brilliant dry sense of humour, is all broody and worldly and protective and then there's the whole forbidden badboy thing.  C'mon, you gotta love that.  Plus, he's just Aiden, ok?  Those grey eyes...  Sigh.  I love him.
And the forbidden romance, fight training and exchanges of witty remarks...  Forgive me while I swoon.  I just love these two together – damn all the stupid rules!  They should be together!  Or, failing that, Aiden can be mine.  You know.  Worst Case Scenario (For Alex)...
Oh, and I must mention Aiden's brother Deacon, who is equally brilliant – he absolutely kills me!  He reminds me a tiny bit of Adrian Ivashkov – he's snarky, always drunk, funny and sweet.  I loved him and really really want to see more of him!
Then there's Seth, who I can't figure out but who intrigues me.  Caleb: who's so sweet and who I love.  Marcus: again undecided.  Lucian: I hate him (lying, smarmy, enterbadwordhere).  Rachelle: My heart breaks.  All of them are just so brilliant – and so awesome!
And the world...  I had this whole rant in my review of Daimon where I just ramble about how this world is like Vampire Academy's world and how completely, amazingly different it is too.  I mean, sure, VA has vampires and that's totally awesome.  But the Covenant series?  It has gods, people!  Freaking Greek Gods.  It's like Percy Jackson meets Vampire Academy meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Camp Half-Blood meets St Vlads.  It is totally freaking awesome!  I love the idea of daimons, of Hematoi, of half-bloods, of the Apollyon, all the legends and gods and myths.  They are so freaking awesome and I would so move to this world if I could, enter the Covenant and train to be a Sentinel – under Aiden St Delphi, of course! 
Ok now, I'm gonna admit this upfront: I did see some of the twists coming.  One thing in particular about Alex I guessed pretty early on.  But others?  Um, no.  And I adore Jennifer's habit of just killing people off.  Not enough books do that.  But if you kill my favourites (Alex, Aiden, Caleb, Deacon) I will cry.  A lot.  Just sayin'.  The point is, the plot was awesome, twisty, action-packed and so very addictive.  I rushed through it and instantly picked up Pure, which I'm a good way through even as I write this!  I loved the plot to pieces, and I loved Alex's voice just as much – it was just so Alex, you know? Funny, witty, sarcastic, kinda vulnerable at times.  I loved it!
Ok, sometimes this is similar to Vampire Academy – in all the best ways.  But that... that isn't why I love the Covenant series.  Because it's just so much more than 'similar-to-VA'.  It has its own characters, its own smouldering romances, its own kickass plots, its own I-wanna-move-in-right-now world, and it's very own addictiveness that runs through all Armentrout books.  It leaves me needing more – always more – and thanking the gods that I have the next couple of books.  Trust me, I’m already ordering the others!  
Half-Blood has left me craving Pure and the world of the Covenant series the way daimons crave aether – i.e., I have no control and will go on a killing spree if I don't get another hit right now.  Ok, I don't really think daimons kill when they don't have aether.  They probably die or something...  Point is: I'm stopping this crazy, rambling review right now so I can get back to Pure.
If that and freaking ignoring chocolate isn't a sign of how amazing Half-Blood is, I don't know what is.  I don't think I'll threaten you again.  I think I did that twice in my review of Daimon.  Wait 'til Pure.  I'm sure I'll be titanium-wielding and element controlling, ready to force everyone in the world to read Jennifer's books...
And on that note: Happy Reading!

Death Bringer by Derek Landy

Series: Skulduggery Pleasant, Book One
Publisher: HarperCollins
Format: Paperback
Published: 29th March 2012
Number of Pages: 604
Book: Bought
Genre: Paranormal, Fantasy, Comedy, Urban Fantasy, Thriller, Suspense, Horror, Action-Adventure, Mystery, Children's, YA, Children's-YA Crossover
Recommended Age: 9+
Contains: Violence, Death, Swearing, Very Mild (And Hilarious) Sexual Innuendos 
No Alcohol or Drug References
Skulduggery Pleasant Site: Skulduggery Pleasant


Meet Skulduggery Pleasant: detective, magician, warrior.
Oh yes, and dead.
The Death Bringer has risen.  Skulduggery and Valkyrie have seven days to uncover the Necromancers’ secret before it’s too late.
The clock is ticking.  Lord Vile is loose.  And after this one, nothing will ever be the same again.

"On Sunday the world changes."
"On Sunday the world is saved."
"Yes," Skulduggery said, "well, we’ll see about that..."
The Death Bringer has been chosen – but it's not Valkyrie Cain (for once)...  The Death Bringer, who is meant to bring about the mysterious 'Passage', which is meant to make the world better and solve death.  Too good to be true?  Almost certainly...
Lord Vile, the previous candidate for Death Bringer, has also returned.  He's also a notorious war criminal.  Not good.
And meanwhile the Sanctuary is going through massive changes, the Faceless Ones fanatics are stirring again, Tanith is missing, China's being blackmailed and Val is having some serious boyfriend troubles...
I'd forgotten about Death Bringer – forgotten, repressed, same difference...  All the  Skulduggery Pleasant books get progressively darker as the series goes on.  But this one... it just breaks my heart every time.  So very many things go so very wrong and... uh!  I can't read Death Bringer without getting this horrid spasm in my heart.  And yet even as these painful little twinges were happening, I was laughing my head off.  Because Derek Landy has a serious gift.  Hell, he has gifts plural; mad gifts. He's so gifted that his freaking gifts have gifts, and they too have gifts, and then they...  You get the picture, right?  My point is I adore Skulduggery Pleasant
Skulduggery... you understand so much more about him in this book – why he is who he is, why he's like he is.  And... to begin with it's a little disturbing but then... then your heart breaks in two.  Oh, Skulduggery!  I just want to give him a hug, even if it would be a little bit of a painful hug – you know, all the bones.  He is a skeleton, after all.  Ok, sorry: these jokes suck...  Moving on: he's so amazing, he's so funny and he's so damaged.  I love him.
As for Valkyrie: she annoyed me in this one.  She was just... selfish.  And also a little mean – poor Fletch!  However, she was also badass and funny and real and good at heart.  Come on: what teenager isn't a little self-involved?  And also the poor girl's had a hell of a lot to deal with, especially for a sixteen-year-old.  You just have to see her with Skulduggery or her uncle or her parents or her baby sister to see what a good person Val really is.  I really love this girl – flaws and all.
Speaking of Fletcher Renn – break my heart!  Poor poor Fletch...  I really felt for China in this one too: she's done some bad stuff but she's trying to make amends.  She has friends for the first time ever and she doesn't want to be alone anymore.  I want to give her a hug too.  And then there's Caelan...  Um, he creeped me out.  He was also unintentionally hilarious – with his cliché gothic proclamations of "eternal" and "burning passion".  Ha!  Seriously: so funny!  But my fave supporting character?  Val's dad: that man seriously kills me!  
Once again, and as always, Landy's writing is second to none.  It's not the most elegant, but it's adrenaline-fuelled, action-packed, hilarious and surprisingly emotional and deep for a MG fantasy book featuring a skeleton detective.  I love Landy's writing – so, so much.  And as for the plot for this one: Unpredictable.  Awesome.  A roller coaster.  Non-stop.  These are just a few of the words that pop to mind.  Awesome in particular, since Derek Landy is undeniably awesome.  Oh, totally twisty is another phrase – because damn!  Death Bringer is just full of twists!  Seriously: this book is as unpredictable as a rabid dingo on drugs!  Does it get any more unpredictable than that?
To sum it up, Death Bringer was the most awesome book out of the most awesome series.  I know I say that with each new book, but it's true.  Death Bringer was emotional, hilarious, addictive and a perfect escape.  I wish I could live in this world, with these people – even if I died or was just in the background.  Because I love them all that much.  Love Derek Landy and SP that much.  And I really, really want you all to read this series if you haven't yet.  I mean, you've been listening to me gush about this series for six books: when are you going to take my advice and read this amazing, amazing series?!
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and reread Kingdom of the Wicked.  Ciao!

Oh: P.S. This should be Derek Landy's catchphrase: "Be off with you.  I have a book to write, characters to kill, and a party to plan." That is literally the most Derek Landy thing ever, even if it came out of Gordon’s mouth.

Reality is only an illusion.
Except for those who can control it… 
Worst. Birthday. Ever. 

My first boyfriend dumped me—happy birthday, Josie!—my dad is who knows where, I have some weird virus that makes me want to hurl, and now my ex is licking another girl’s tonsils.  Oh, and I’m officially the same age as my brother was when he died.  Yeah, today is about as fun-filled as the swamps of Dagobah.  But then weird things start happening…

Like I make something materialize just by 
thinking about it.

When hottily-hot badass Reid Wentworth shows up on a motorcycle, everything changes.  Like, 
everything.  Who I am.  My family.  What really happened to my brother.  Existence.  I am Oculi, and I have the ability to change reality with my thoughts.  Now Reid, in all his hotness, is charged with guiding and protecting me as I begin learning how to bend reality.  And he’s the only thing standing between me and the secret organization that wants me dead…

Josie's seventeenth birthday sucks – latest in a line of suckiness.  Her dad's vanished.  Her boyfriend broke up with her.  An awesome interning job fell through.  Her mom's being super protective.  And she's now the age her brother was when he died.  All in all, a great day.  Not.
But also... things keep happening.  Things that don't make sense...
And then a total hottie rolls up to school on a motor bike, sporting a tattoo just like Josie's brother had...
The hottie is called Reid.  He's come to drop a huge bomb.
Josie has powers.  She's in danger.  Bad guys are gunning for her.  Her life has been a lie.  Oh, and he's got to train her quickly – as in, before it's too late and war starts.
No pressure there.  I mean, where are the Avengers when you need them...?
I saw Anomaly on NetGalley and instantly thought: gots to have it!  From the moment I began reading, I fell totally and utterly in love.  This book...  Holy Thor!  It was freaking amazing.  I was just instantly hooked!  Anomaly was hilarious, exciting, action-packed and full of brilliant nerdy references.  Many of its elements weren't stunningly original (nerdy lead girl, former crush, snarkiness, hotness, sci-fi stuff), but when put all together, along with a whole load of awesome, the result meant Anomaly was just stunning.  It was so much fun and I loved every single second of it.  I seriously cannot recommend Anomaly enough!
Now, when dealing with awesomeness, start with the awesome characters.  And Josie was awesome.  She was nerdy, funny, clever and, if you haven't gathered by this point, awesome.  Her Star Trek, Star Wars, Big Bang Theory and Marvel comics references killed me every time.   I also loved her "I was just wired to be weird" – the girl had some brilliant snark!  Her reaction to what she really was felt so utterly believable and realistic – I mean, who deals with 'you're not quite human' and 'your life's a lie' with a happy grin?  She was brilliant and so was her development!
Reid was amazing too – and totally crushworthy!  He, too, was snarky and funny – but he was serious and motivated too.  And badass – do not forget the badassness of Reid!  He was just amazing.
Oh, and Rosie (Jeid?) was perfect too!  They were so cute, so hot and so brilliant.  I loved seeing the two of them together and just loved them!
I loved Josie's best friend Hannah as well – she was the perfect counterpoint to Oculi craziness and was really sweet and funny.  And Santos killed me too!  Oh, and I loved that Josie's mom had to use a cane, but that she hated any help.  She didn't want to be treated like she was incapable, like all disabled people (well, unless the hill is really steep...)  Go Mrs H!  Well, not really.  Mrs H was also rather cold and rational.  I was very torn about Mom…
But the writing was perfect.  Split between Reid and Josie, the action was non-stop and also funny as hell!   I loved getting both sides of the story – loved Josie's nerdiness and Reid's badassness.  Together, it was like the perfect little mix for my bookish loves!  I mean, all those geeky/dorky references... it was like dying and ending up on the Enterprise (not really, since I'm not really into Star Trek, but the dorkiness of the statement seemed fitting).  Seriously, all I needed was the mention of D&D or Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizards, Spock and I literally would've been on geekdom cloud nine!
And damn this plot was good!  I mean, oh my Star Lord!  It was fast-paced, exciting, unpredictable, and awesome.  I read this book in one sitting – that good!  I was just so hooked and so desperate to know what would happen next!  I may have seen a few plot twists coming, but there were so very many twists and turns that I was always, always hooked and on the edge of my seat.  I cannot wait for the next book in the series!  I need it so badly!
As for this world...  Oh.  My.  Thor!  It was so cool!  The whole sci-fi edge to the paranormal aspects just blew me away.  Everything felt so real – I mean, there was all kinds of science-talk, as well as mentions of scientists – all of which made these unbelievable acts of projection seem, well, believable.  And man do I want to be Oculi!
Oh, how I hearted Anomaly!  It was the perfect book to just sit and read (preferably in a single sitting) and then gush about afterwards.  I’m recommending it to all sci-fi, paranormal and Marvel lovers out there – this is not one to miss!  It’s just the most amazing, nerd-a-licious, exciting, thrilling, fun book to read and I shall be desperately waiting for my second hit of the Schrodinger’s Consortium series!

Author's Blog:

Billi SanGreal is a Knight Templar and has thrown herself utterly into their brutal regime, shutting herself off from everyone and everything.
But when Billi finds herself at the heart of a savage werewolf attack, she knows their target – a young girl – must be rescued at all costs.
For this is no ordinary girl.  Vasilisa is an avatar with an uncontrollable force within – and it’s not just the werewolves who want her.  The Dark Goddess wants to sacrifice Vasilisa and use her powers to unleash unimaginable catastrophes and devastation.
Can Billi protect Vasilisa from the ancient goddess – and at the same time stop her from destroying the world?

When a book starts with a dead body, you know you're in for a freaking awesome and terrifying adrenaline ride.  I should've expected it anyway.  Those who have read Devil's Kiss will get how good Chadda is at writing horror, deaths, sadness, betrayal, and badass teenager Templar Knights.  Sarwat, you are officially one of my favourite people ever…
The one person Billi SanGreal cared about most is gone.  Her way of coping?  To throw herself into her duties as a member of the Knight Templar.  Fighting the Unholy, saving lives and getting all battered up is a pretty usual night for her.
And then everything goes south.  Because Billi gets caught up in a werewolf attack.  Something unlike anything she's seen before.  
The target?  A little girl named Vasilisa. 
The motive?  Who knows!  
Ok ok, I know.  So does Billi.  And the Knights Templar.  
The girl is... special.  Really special.  Special enough for a secret Unholy organisation with a deadly mission to spring up, intent on stealing her.  
Can Billi keep the girl safe, even when she's totally out of her depth and in a country she doesn't even know?  When she's up against enemies stronger than anything she's ever faced before?
When she's forced to ask a question that could either save or destroy the world...?
And when she starts to fall in love again?
This is Billi Sangreal and she is here to save the world.  Hopefully...
Sarwat Chadda, I officially love you.  Not only have you managed to bring Billi SanGreal back with a bang, but you've brought her back in a story that is somehow even better than Devil's Kiss, in a story that is fast-paced, action-packed, emotional, and at times slightly terrifying.  And how I love every single minute!  
Billi: oh, I love you too!  She's just so funny, so tough, so reluctantly caring, so stubborn and so totally kickass!  I also really love that she just feels so real.  She's flawed but in a totally believable way.  She's tough but also relatable.  She's mature but in a way that's completely truthful to her personality and lifestyle.  She's just the perfect heroine.    And I am just... I don't want to let her go.  I want more of her.  So please, please, please people at Penguin.  Publish the third Billi book!  I will buy a million copies if you'll just PUBLISH it so I can just READ it!!  And damn you, Sarwat, for giving me those first few chapters!  Now I’m even more desperate!
I'm sounding slightly crazy right now so I'll move onto Ivan.  Now, Ivan...  I may have started thinking you were a stuck up Tsarevich, but I love you now and see you for the broken, beautiful, caring, noble guy you are!  I didn't think I'd be able to love someone as much as Kay, but I loved Ivan just as much!  Maybe... maybe even more...  
The rest of the cast was brilliant – and all very varied.  And I'm pleased to say that Sarwat didn't let me down and killed off loads of them!  That sounds really twisted but c'mon!  They're freaking Templar Knights!  I'm sorry, but some of 'em are gonna die.  It's just the way life works, people.  You know, in books about demon hunters anyway...  But still, Sarwat!  Did you have to scare the hell out of me so many times?  I'm not sure how many more of these close shaves and horrible, terrifying fears my nerves and heart can take! 
Right now, in so, so many YA books, it's all about the romance.  Sure, there's like demons or ghosts or whatever, but much of the plot is about the romance.  Dark Goddess is such a refreshing change to that trend!  It's all about the world, the suspense, the horror, the action, the evil and the people.  The romance?  Just the sprinkling on the cake that is this killer of a book.  It doesn't overwhelm the hard, violent story but also adds a nice break – a sweet dash of sugar in this action-packed thriller.  And I loved that.  I really loved it.  And it means that this book, this wonderful wonderful book, is perfect for boys and girls.
I also loved the history of the Bogatyrs: like the Templars, only Russian and led by long-lost descendants of Tsar Nikolas.  Russian history is one of my favourites.  I love Tsarist Russia and absolutely adored all the elements of it in Dark Goddess.  Especially the one where there's a secret organisation led by a secret Romanov.  That's awesome.  And of Baba Yaga.  She is freaking terrifying...  But also just the tour of Russia as it is today.  Ever since Markus Sedgewick's Blood Red, Snow White and Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy, I've wanted to visit Moscow and St Petersburg.  And after reading Dark Goddess I want to go even more!  It all just felt so real – like I was actually there!
One of my favourite things about Sarwat's books is that nothing is sugar coated.  People die.  Like, a lot of people.  There are sacrifices, there are losses and it's not all happily-ever-afters either.  It just completely sets him and his books aside.  Well, that and the plot.  Have I mentioned the plot?  Not really?  Well, it was kickass.  Like seriously.  I never saw the twists coming, I never guessed what would happen next, I never knew who was – and who wasn't – going to die, I never even knew how the book would end – as in, with a fave character's death, more heartache, happy-ever-after or with no world left...  Yup.  That bad.  That good.  Man, I want another book...
Towards the end of the book, I found it really hard to read.  Not because it was a let-down or anticlimactic or anything.  Oh no.  Completely the opposite.  It was just so good I didn't want it to end!  Ever.  Which, if you ask me, is the sign of an amazing book.  And Dark Goddess really truly was an amazing book.  Even better than Devil's Kiss, something I didn't even think Sarwat would be able to manage.  I adored every single moment of this book and just could not put it down, even when I really didn't want it to end...  It didn't make sense to me, either.  But seriously.  If you haven't checked this series out, you absolutely have to.  I don't care if you're thirteen or one hundred, a boy or a girl: you will love this book and you will see it for the unique brilliance that it is.  Trust me.
Dark Goddess started with a dead body and ended with dead bodies – and one hell of a bang.  Now it's time for me to pray, hope and beg for the release of a Billi SanGreal Book Three.  Would it help if I put in a gif of someone begging?  No?  Oh well.  You're getting one anyways, people at Penguin.  This is how serious and desperate I am.  
Because when a series is this good, it should be illegal to stop it.  A death penalty offence.  Which is saying something, since I like in the UK where there is no death sentence, and when I'm against it anyway.  But now do you get how desperate I am?!  I need more Billi, more Ivan, more Templars and more of everything this book is about.  As soon as possible.  Please...
