Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

Seriously?! 70 plus pages and Armentrout managed to write such an awesome prologue. She's showing off her mad writing skills and in the process, she's teasing us with this prologue to the her Covenant Series.

We meet our protagonist Alexandria at the beach party with her mortal boyfriend, Matt. The book was narrated fantastically, it was a combination of humor, wit and sarcasm which is perfect for a book like this. Alex is a kick-ass female protagonist, who's trained in the 'fighting ways' of the half-bloods. She reminded me a lot of Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy) but I'm not saying that in a bad way. The prologue's pace was incredibly fitting for how short it was and all the events that happened, made me believe I wasn't just reading the prologue.

Just like Rose, Alex is so going to be an interesting character to follow in the Covenant Series. I'm looking forward to reading the first book of the series and luckily for me. I already have it on my bookshelf. A fantastic introduction from a rising star!
