2x1 :) I love Prequels!

Today I'm reviewing 2 amazing prequels! I couldn't help myself! I hope you keep an eye on these series because they are really worth the time! 

DAIMON (The Prequel to Half-Blood) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Genre: Paranormal Romance with a twist of Mythology ;)

Published: April 19th 2011 by Spencer Hill Press

Rating: 4.5 stars

"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. 


 This time I started reading the prequel before reading the first book. Which is the opposite of what I always do. 

But I'm a huge fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout since I read the "Lux Series" and wanted to see what this one was about. 
As the "Lux Series" set the bar so high I wasn't expecting much of this one. I mean, I though it couldn't be better. 

But all I can say is that this prequel is incredible, it kept my attention the whole time. 
The writing is flawless and it flows smoothly. No dull moments, so intriguing and AWESOME! (for lack of another word lol) 

Amazing start for a series that everyone should read! 

What to say about Alex? BAD ASS HEROINE! That sums it up!

 “Was your mom a gardener?” I asked innocently. 
 “What?” Ren’s mouth hung open slightly. 
“Because a face like yours belongs planted on the ground.”

Nothing else needed to show her personality!
Can't wait to read Half Blood!

BEFORE (The Prequel to Masquerade) by Cambria Hebert.

Genre: Paranormal Romance.

PublishedPublished November 18th 2011 by Otherworld Publications 

Rating:  5 stars

What if your life was charmed and everything in it was perfect…


This is the story of my past. Of what things were like for me when everything was normal. Of what every teenager’s life is like. Clothes. Parties. Boys and summer vacation. What’s so wrong with that? I liked it. I was happy. 

Until things changed. I changed.

I didn’t know that lies and secrets were about to take over my existence. I didn’t know there was someone out there, someone meant just for me. I didn’t know that I was about to go on a journey, a journey that would lead me to the girl I am today.
This is the beginning of the worst year of my life. Would I go back and change things? Erase everything that has happened to go back into these moments?

Not a chance.

This is a story of before.


Yup! Totally caught in this story. Lol. It's just a taste of what is coming. It has the perfect amount of mystery and tension. 
And guess what? It ends spectacularly! 

I think the way Sam follows her is kinda creepy, pretty much a stalker kind of thing but that also makes it interesting! 

I wanna know what he is and what happened after that last phrase! 

Purchasing "Masquerade" (Heven and Hell #1) NOW!

Great! As I didn't have any interesting series to read, I'm completely drawn by this one too!

My only critic: It was too short! XD , but that's the point of a prequel isn't it? Leaving you wanting MORE!  Mission accomplished by Cambria Hebert!
