Goodreads Summary: 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.Daimon is an awesome prequel to Half-Blood. We are quickly introduced to Alex, our main character and she is a snarky, spunky, kick-butt type of girl. I love her already. In such a short story, Armentrout does a great job of introducing us to her mythological world of demigods. She has also packed so much action into these 62 pages, I can only imagine how exciting Half-Blood will be. The mythology is cool, Alex’s crush is swoon-worthy and the ending leaves you dying for the next book. Make sure you download this for free from Spencer Hill Press and enjoy before Half-Blood comes out on Oct. 18.
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.
