"Love in my world usually ended up with someone hearing "I smite thee!" as she was cured 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 diamons have found her. 


The book was rather short (I finished it in a couple hours), but it was a prequel so that really didn't bother me. The ending did bother me. It was definitely a cliffhanger ending, but it felt more like an abrupt stop rather than a natural conclusion. I was definitely rooting for the MC to make it out of the abandoned warehouse and get away from the Diamon, may even discover she has power of some kind that her mother never told her of. 

You should definitely read it, but have Half-Blood on hand for when you finish or you will be disappointed.
