“You will kill the ones you love. It is in your blood, in your fate. So the gods have spoken it and so the gods have come to foresee it.” 
Loved this book! We have so many different classes, the Pures, Half-bloods, Daimons, Apollyons. Our main character is Alex, a Half-blood. After her mom is killed, she ends up at the Covenant again. Half-bloods don't really have a lot of options. They can become Sentinels to hunt Daimons or lose their free will and become servants in the homes of Pures. As any reasonable person, Alex does not want to lose her free will. Aiden sees Alex's potential and convinces her uncle Marcus, the current Dean of the Covenant, to let him train her during the summer break. Our grieving Alex is still young and acts like a typical teenager. She has a hard time following orders, doesn't take things seriously, and overestimates her own ability. But as the story matures, so does she. 

We all know what it means to have different classes... forbidden romance! Of course Alex is attracted to Aiden, a Pure. But it gets more interesting when Seth, the Apollyon, gets introduced.
Another lovely character is Caleb. He is a very loyal friend to Alex. We all need a friend like him!
