Daimon by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Daimon (Covenant #0.5)
by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Summary 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."

A very nice prequel!

It’s amazing how a few pages of thrilling scenes can affect one book-lover’s enthusiasm!

If you’re deciding on reading Half-Blood but want a glimpse of what’s to come first, then I definitely recommend that you read Daimon.

I haven’t read Half-Blood yet either and this book just made me eager to read it. Greek Mythology? Action? Fantasy? Sounds like my kind of book.

Daimon is a quick and easy read that makes any mythology fan want to grab Half-blood and see what happens to Alex. Daimon leaves readers to a promise of an experience that would be worth the trip and I really, really hope Half-Blood would deliver. I will be reading it soon!

  1. Prequel are usually a hint of whats to come, but this was pure torture. How am I suppose to wait patiently for Half-Blood after reading this? It ends on a cliffhanger and then I thought, luckily there is a sneak peak of Half-Blood. Which again, ends on a cliffhanger! This feeling I'm left with, must be what it's like to have an addiction.

    It's a great, fast-paced introduction to a new series that will leave you wanting more. In short - The best prequel I've ever read.

    I'd recommend this to fans of Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy.


I really appreciate your thoughts and I hope you take the time to drop me a line. Thanks! ^_^
