Review: Daimon: A Prequel to Half-Blood (Covenant #0.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: Daimon: A Prequel to Half-Blood (Covenant) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Published: May 10, 2011 (eBook) by Spencer Hill Press
Source: Bought for Kindle (.99 cents) 
Grade rate: B+

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 Review

This is a short novella that is a prequel to Half-Blood.  It gives an introduction to Alex's world and her past, but more than anything it wets the appetite and make me crave for more.  This is a short and fast paced story, thus it felt a little rushed to me.  I instantly liked Alex, her nonsense personality and her drive.

I will definitely read Half-Bloods when it come out in October.  Isn't the cover pretty?
