Daimon (Covenant 0.5)
Publication: 10th May 2011
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Age Appropriate: Young AdultFor 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.
Why I have never picked up a book by Armentrout before now is completely beyond me, I have heard so many good things about the author and everybody seems to absolutely love the books, since I got sent the third book for review it gave me a reason to finally pick this series up and start reading, and boy I wasn't disappointed and I can see why these books have such a big following!
Although this book is really short (out of the 75 pages only 62 is the story) I was completely absorbed and wanted to dive straight into the next book, which luckily I had on hand.
She smelled like mothballs and death.
And so begins the story of Alexandria 'Alex' who for three years has been on the run with her Mum from the Covenant a place for Pure's and Half-Blood's (descendants of the greek gods), Alex has a knack for getting herself into trouble and has had to move school's and town's quite often.
Actually, I was prone to random acts of stupidity. I considered it to be one of my talents.
While around mortals Alex has to watch herself and not let on that she is anything out of the ordinary, and so has to hide her true self. Alex and her Mum are also always on the lookout for Daimons (Pure's who have been turned into Daimons who only care about killing, and sucking the Aether out of mainly Pure's but Half-Blood's as well).
But what happens when Daimons find out where Alex and her Mum live?
I love this series already and I can already tell I'm going to be a big fan, now to read on and see what happens to Alex next!
I give this 5/5.
