"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. - via GoodReads
Daimon by Jennifer L. Armentrout is a prequel to Half-Blood. Half-Blood was a September COYER book club read. I didn’t quite finish Half-Blood before book club. I was a little over halfway into it and really struggling with Alex as a character. She seemed way to obnoxious and purposely stupid.
Book club mentioned some of their e-copies had the prequel Daimon and felt like it really helped with their tolerance for Alex in Half-Blood. I decided to read it before continuing with Half-Blood and they were right!
Half-Blood starts with a ton of action but doesn’t really go into a lot of detail of a huge life-defining moment for Alex. I really liked that Daimon showed Alex before her world was rocked. It made her more of a likable character. I would definitely suggest reading Daimon by Jennifer L. Armentrout before starting Half-Blood!
