Where I Got It: Library
"Love in my world usually ended up with someone hearing 'I smite thee ' as she was cursed to be some lame flower for the rest of her life." 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.

What Did I Think?

So, I enjoyed reading this novella and all, but it wasn't my favourite. It isn't that I disliked it or don't recommend it, but I thought it was different. I read it before I read Half-Blood, so I wasn't putting it on a pedestal or anything, I just wanted a little more because I loved Jennifer's other novella, Shadows.

My Review

I read this book on March 21st, 2013.

I really like the author Jennifer L. Armentrout, so I decided to start this series. I read the prequel before I read the first book like I did with the Lux Series and I'm surprised at how it ended. I kinda wanted to know what happened, but I guess that's what authors have to do to get people to continue reading.
I expected just a little more from Daimon but I don't know why. I guess it was difficult for me to think of it in perspective, although I love Alex, she is rude. But I love Alex because she reminds me of me.
After reading Half-Blood
Now I understand why you would need that book in the series. It explains everything that you need to know for the next book. As said above, I enjoyed Alex's comments and remarks, but I especially love when she put that guys head in the sand! So funny.
Daimon is a good companion to Hal-Blood but it is not a MUST read to understand the first one but it does help you a lot more if you know what's going on.
Either way, I am going to read Half-Blood and I will read it happily.
I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Jennifer's writing.
