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.
This story was incredible right from the beginning, the writing with leave you breathless, it is descriptive, witty and charming all at once. The way in which information is given to the reader is surely not an information dump it is given in such a way that all the terminology is able to be digested by the readers.
I have seen according to Leigh Fallon that there are some smoking hot scenes (did I really just say that?) and let me tell you that there are for sure in Daimon! The characters are very well rounded and Alex had me right from the beginning.
Armentrout writes in such a way that you are able to imagine the story vividly without try to create the images in your mind and the story flows effortlessly! The description is fantastic and I did not have one problem at all with this story!
The story has very interesting concepts and I think that it was a great way to promote Half-Blood by releasing this free prequel! This story was so addictive and I really cannot wait to read Half-Blood. By the way if you read Daimon I am positive that you will end up being really intrigued by the story as well as all of the books titles and how they are actually named after things that can be found in the books. I loved this and found it interesting. This was a great read overall and I am positive that many people will love it. Look out for Half-Blood!
