From Goodreads: 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: Daimon is an exciting and fast paced novella that got me extremely excited to dig into the Covenant series starting with Half-Blood.
In Daimon we have only just met Alex and already this is a heroine that I can tell I’m going to love. She is strong willed, but still down to earth enough to love her mother. She is brave, but realistic enough to get a little bit freaked out about what she is up against. She is half mortal and while we have yet to figure out all of the details of her powers, we do know that she was training to be a guard at the Covenant and thus has some pretty crazy survival skills.
I can’t wait to see where the story is going to go from here. I am really looking forward to reading more about the Covenant and what exactly goes on there. I also have so many questions about Half-Bloods and Pures and why exactly they can’t mix, how they can control the elements, and what is going on the with Daimons and how did this whole anther addiction come about. If Daimon is any indication of what Jennifer L. Armentrout has in store for her readers, in the first book of the Covenant series, Half-Blood is going to be fantastic!
