In case you didn’t know, Half-Blood is by far of my favorite books this year, not only because of the kick-ass plot, but more so because of the kick-ass female lead, Alex. I love that girl!
She’s definitely not your typical damsel-in-distress, in fact, she’d probably kick the villain’s ass and save yours in the process! I love that she’s snarky, stubborn, and tough. She doesn’t take crap from anyone and isn’t quick to get all weak and emotional like some girls I’ve known. She most definitely doesn’t need a man, but also doesn’t mind having one around, and with Aiden to occupy her time, I don’t blame her.
She’s dealt with a lot of stuff in her life, yet she’s still able to remain sane and strong. She fights for what she believes in and doesn’t trust or love easily, but when she does, she does it whole-heartedly. I love how dedicated and determined she is, a true soldier and heroine if I ever saw one. Not to mention she’s funny as hell and witty to boot!
If you haven’t read Half-Blood yet, what are you waiting for?! Get on that! You will devour it and adore Alex just as much as I do. Trust me!
Be sure to VOTE for Alex in the YA Sisterhood Tournament of Heroines tomorrow so we can see Alex make it to the top!
Here’s some news from Jen Armentrout:
500 Votes: If Alex reaches 500 votes, I will give you a juicy scene from Pure. It involves a pool, but will be edited to avoid spoilers.
750 Votes: If Alex gets 750 votes, I will give you Chapter 16 from Half-Blood in Aiden’s POV. Yes, that chapter.
1000 Votes: If Alex get 1000 votes, I will give you Chapter 26 from Obsidian in Daemon’s POV.
Yes, that chapter.
Winning votes: If Alex wins against Rose, I will write a very lengthy scene/ basically a freaking novella from Aiden’s POV about a trip he and Leon took that involved searching down a certain daimon that got away at the end of Half-Blood. Now. If she wins, all of this will take me some time, of course.
Also, Momo from Books Over Boys, who is Alex’s advocate, will be giving away a copy of Daimon (the prequel), Half-Blood, and Pure (the sequel) on her blog in honor of the Tournament. Be sure to click on over and enter to win!
