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.
Okay so I know I finally read and reviewed one of Jennifer Armentrout’s books and I know that people were secretly judging me. It is okay I accept that. Judge me all you want, hit me with your best shot. But that is not why we are here, let me get back to the review.
So I read Daimon after reading Half-Blood because I am a noob and did not clearly see that this was a prequel to the series. So I kind of already knew what was going on but when starting this novella, it was not what I was thinking. It was literally the buildup to the first book. And maybe that is how it is supposed to read but I have read different novellas, each different, so that could be it. Anyways, it was refreshing to know what exactly happened to lead up to what would happen in the first book.
This was a fast read and I was done with it within an hour. It was packed full of action and emotion to make you want to continue on. I know there were times I was on my toes in excitement at what could possibly happen and then I turned the page and it was over. And all I could think about was…
Alex is going to be an interesting character and I am curious to see how she grows and where she goes. I want to say that there is something special about her but all I could do is keep reading to find out.
This is a short review but I recommend you to pick up this novella and read it before you start the series. That is if you are like me and have waiting four plus years to finally read a book by Jennifer Armentrout.
