Daimon by Jennifer L. Armentrout
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.
I give Daimon by Jennifer L. Armentrout 5/5 stars for being so awesome.
I really liked this short story. Alex is a very likable and extremely funny character.
I must also add that Daimon gave me MAJOR Vampire Academy deja vu. Alex's world is basically Rose's world. I can even argue that though the two supernatural elements, between the two series, appear to be different, there basically the same concept. Since I adore Vampire Academy, I'm not sure what to make of all the similarities. Should I be happy to read another, perhaps, great series like Vampire Academy or hate on it for being so similar? I'm not quite sure yet what my verdict will be.
Therefore, for now, I have to read and rate Daimon on how much I like it ONLY. I can say, Daimon was awesome (as I said before). Usually prequels can be read anytime during the series but for this one, I highly recommend reading it before Half- Blood . The end of this short story is the beginning of the first chapter of Half-Blood.
