Daimon by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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 Thoughts:
This book is the prequel to the first book in the Covenant series, Half-Blood. Damion was a great short read, at only 62 pages plus a free sample of Half-Blood. I loved the main character, Alexandria, and her witty personality. She is a very strong character. A tragedy happens that would make any normal person want to give up, but she gathers her courage up, and continues on her journey. Alexandria is very tough and can hold her own in a fight, wheter she's fighting against humans or daimons. This ebook kind of reminded me of Vampire Academy. Daimon made me want to pick up Half-Blood and start reading just to find out what happens next. I would definitely recommend Daimon as a short fun read.

I give Daimon: 4/5.

hi/did get a new layout? like the bannr
review <3

Thank you. As for the new layout, I think we've had this for a month or two, but I'm not sure.

I love the mythology and world that was created in Daimon. In just a short prequel I was able to grasp the concept of the world without wordy explanations. I'm sure there will be more to learn in Half-Blood and I look forward to exploring it all, but I love that it's explained as the action happens instead of going through pages and pages of boring world building.

Daimon really reminded me of a mix between Percy Jackson and Vampire Academy! Fans of both are really going to love it. Move over Rose Hathaway, Alex is coming to town!!!!
