For three years, Alexandria has lived among mortals—pretending to be like them and trying to forget the duty she'd been trained to fulfill as a child of a mortal and a demigod. At seventeen, she's pretty much accepted that she's a freak by mortal standards... and that she'll never be prepared for that duty.
According to her mother, that’s a good thing.
But as every descendant of the gods knows, Fate has a way of rearing her ugly head. A horrifying attack forces Alex to flee Miami and try to find her way back to the very place her mother had warned her she should never return—the Covenant. Every step that brings her closer to safety is one more step toward death… because she's being hunted by the very creatures she'd once trained to kill.
The daimons have found her.
My Rating: 5.0 / 5
Once I was finished with Daimon, all I wanted to do was pick up a copy of Half-Blood to find out how Alex' story will continue. Within a few pages Jennifer L. Armentrout got me addicted to a series that I'm sure I will love.
I have heard so many amazing things about this series, but I never thought it was possible to fall in love with it simply by reading the quite short prequel. But Daimon is a great short story that makes me want to read its sequel immediately.
I had read that other people are reminded of the Vampire Academy series and I have to admit that I'm agreeing with them. While the story doesn't deal with vampires, the basic idea seems quite similar to me - but since I absolutely love Vampire Academy I have no problem with that and am looking forward to see how this world will develop.
Alex seems like a really intriguing character who does remind me a little bit of Rose as well, but, like I said above, it doesn't annoy me yet. I can't wait to see how she will deal with her situation and what will happen to her. All in all, Daimon is a really intriguing and well written short story and I will pick up a copy of Half-Blood as soon as possible.
