Daimon: A Half-Blood Prequel

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

You can download it for FREE.

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 Reflections:

Omg I gotta read this book series now!

After reading the prequel to Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout I want to read more! I love the concept of Alex being an immortal and the funny thing is she says "O gods" a lot.  She and her mother had left the Covenant and are in danger from the Daimons. Alexandria describes them as Death ; pure and simple. Only half-bloods can see their true form; ugly. They appear like any other normal human to others though. They feed on aether. Aether runs in immortal blood but they do not usually go after half bloods like Alex cuz there's not much in it .

When Alex sees her mother get the life sucked out of her , she ends up killing a daimon accidentally with a titanium garden spade. Titanium is like poison to them and it can kill them. Anyway running away was not something she was used to doing. The Covenant , taught her to fight with violence.

Now the Daimons are after her and she fights desperately to get back to the Covenant where she belongs but the problem is..... her mother is dead and all she has is a warning to never return to the Covenant, but she doesn't know why, and a few hundred dollars ...until Aiden shows up to bring her home... ahhhhh *her hero *sigh

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Skulls

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout lives in West Virginia. All the rumors you've heard about her state aren’t true. Well, mostly. When she’s not hard at work writing, she spends her time reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write. She shares her home with her husband, his K-9 partner named Diesel, and her hyper Jack Russell Loki. Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class, where she spent her time writing short stories...therefore explaining her dismal grades in math. Jennifer writes Adult and Young Adult Urban Fantasy and Romance.
