Daimon by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Daimon: The Prequel to Half-Blood (Covenant)
By Jennifer L. Armentrout
Release Date: 05/06/11
86 pages
Description from goodreads:
"Love in my world usually ended up with someone hearing 'I smite thee ' as she was cursed to be some lame flower for the rest of her life." 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 take:
What a great kickoff to the series! I immediately fell in love with the story line and the characters.  The main character, Alex, is stubborn, full of wit, and edgy heroine - what's not to love!
I love Jennifer's writing style; how she can create a parallel universe with mythical daimons. She gives enough details to make the story realistic without too many details.

I was drawn into the story, by the edge of my seat, wanting MORE! I loved this book and cannot wait to read Half-Blood! MUST find out what happens next!
