Daimon (Covenant, #0.5)Reviewed by Gina
Date Read: 20th December, 2011
Date Published: 6th May, 2011
Blurb: 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

Review: Daimon is the short prequel for Half Blood and it introduces us to the main character Alex. If you are thinking of starting this series then I would suggest Reading this book first as it gives some background information. I read Half-Blood first but this additional story is great.

Alex is a young girl who has been living with her mother in the normal world of humans for three years after fleeing their covenant. Alex is half human, half god which makes her a Half-Blood. But when her mother is suddenly killed by Daimons she has to run but her journey isn’t easy and even more problems await her.

This book is only 70-ish pages long but we learn a lot about the key characters. Alex is a fighter but losing her mother shook her up. You’ll love her and will be rooting for her. Half-Blood is even better and you will certainly enjoy this series. Jennifer Armentrout captivates you and leaves you pining for more. 4 stars!!
