"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 Review

This is a very short novella where we get to see what happened to Alex mother and how did she ended up on the covenant again.

is action packed and does the work like a charm, Daimon is so intriguing that it makes you go grab Half Blood so you can find out what everything was about.

Another great book from a great writer can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of this series

Half Blood and Pure Synopsis

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck

Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her.

When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon... and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude... or killing her.

When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

My Review

O k so, I’ve been thinking really really hard about the way to go with this review, It´s not that I don’t like it, quite the contrary; the book has a great flow and it´s peaks and valleys are magnificent.
I loved the characters and the whole Greek mythology going on.
So, what´s the problem then? Well I’m a huge fan of both J.L. Armentrout and Richelle Mead and Vampire Academy is one of my favorite series ever.
Why do I say this? Cause there are a lot of similarities between this books here is a short list of some of them.
1.       The girl gets captured and brought back to “school” by a sexy older guy that has her drooling from day one
2.       The sexy older guy ends up training her to make her catch up with the rest of her class
3.       There´s a lust charm type of scene.
4.       They can’t be together for several reasons, so he backs off
5.       Enters an Adrian type of character who falls for her bad even though he is a ladies’ man
6.       There´s a breach on campus security and her best friend gets killed in front of her
7.       The sexy older guy tells her he doesn’t/can´t love her even though we know he does and she starts developing feelings towards the ladies man.
8.       Etc.,Etc.,Etc…
That been said and I’m trying to be really honest here, if I had read this books before VA I think I would have liked this one more, J.L.A. sure knows how to tell a story.
The only difference for me is that on this series I really do want Seth/Adrian to get the girl at the end, and some super interesting plot changes LOL!!!!
I also want to say that even though I did find distracting the fact that the series are practically identical I read Daimon, Half Blood and Pure one after the other, that was how sucked up I was on this series; so this review is for both Half blood and Pure, also as the story progresses it developes into something incredible and new.
I fully intend to keep reading this series, my problem is I just don’t know how to rate it lol!!!!
So let’s say 3.99 starts just because I really like the way she writes and even though I knew most of what was going to happened I still couldn’t get my eyes of these books.
but cause i totally rock i´ll round it up to 4 starts :D
