If you liked any of Richelle Mead's books (Vampire Academy or Game board of the gods), there's no reason why you wouldn't like this series. Everyone s..Show More »ays it reminds them of Vampire Academy series like it's a negative thing and if they stopped at just the first book I can see why they would think that, but I am on book 3 and I definitely think this series stands apart. Similar, not the same. It is certainly worth listening to! P.s. The main characters ages range around 17-24.... so it has more "adult" scenes than the Vampire Academy series.
But once I did. I was enthralled. If you read & love the Lux series; and are listening to this one. Give the narrator time before saying "it sucks". I..Show More »t took me to get through book 1 & the majority of this one until I could fall into the story.

This series is about a hidden society of Greek Gods and their descendants ( I'm a huge fan of Greek mythology). Within the society there is a political cast system with pure blood descendants as the ruling class and the half-blood descendants as the lesser class of guards or servants for the pure bloods. It is law that there cannot be any relations between any pure bloods and half-bloods, any that are caught it is punishable by death. We have our 17 teen year old heroine Alexandria who is a half-blood in school training to be sentinel guard. Trying to catch up in school to graduate after being absent for 3 years while on the run with her mother, gorgeous pure-blood sentinel Aidan agrees to train her. The couple has to fight their forbidden attraction and Alex slowly finds out why her mother was trying to hide her from the covenant, Alex is slated to become the most powerful weapon in their world, but she isn't alone there is another that can harness the same power. Deity kept my attention and it ends in a cliffhanger and I already pre-ordered the next one.
