About the book
"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
Cover: I love this cover and the way that the flower looks like it is on fire. I love the black and green contrast to the coloring of the cover.

Things that I liked: I really enjoyed reading this. It was only 62 pages but I love that it was just enough that it makes me what to read more of the series. With this being a prequel and a glimpse of what is to come further into the series. I look forward to reading it in the near future. I really liked the complexity of the main character and the villains (daimons) that she is up against throughout this piece. I love that she seems so normal but not normal enough to quite fit into a human world.

Things that I didn’t like: I wouldn’t have liked to see more into the covenant and why they did have to leave before this started, but I’m sure it will be shown to the readers as they read through the series.

Overall: I really enjoyed this and look forward to reading the rest of the series. I would recommend this to my friends and anyone looking to read something supernatural in a sense. I would rate this 5 out of 5 stars.

Until next time, Happy Reading!
