An awesome prequel to Half-Blood.
Alex is a half-blood, half mortal and half pure-blood. Pure-bloods are the children of gods and mortals with powers over the elements. Alex leaves with her mother in Miami after leaving the Convenant, a place to train half-bloods, three years ago. Her mision used to be killing Daimons, turned evil pure-bloods who drink the live force of everyone else, now her mision is to lay low and be normal. But after a surprise attack by two Daimons her whole world is turned upside down and she has to run away, to the only place where she belongs. Back to the Convenant.
Alex is a butt-kicking heroine, I loved her from the very first page. The book was sort but right to the point. It made me to desperately want to read Half-Blood. Luckyly, there was a small preview of Half-Blood!
