Daimon is the prequel to Half-Blood the first full novel in the Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. While this novella is only sixty-nine pages in length, it offers the perfect introduction to the protagonist, the world she lives in and her purpose. From the first few pages, I knew I was going to love Armentrout and this series. Fans of mythology and urban fantasy are sure to find this series delightful.

I am ashamed to say that The Gathering is the first book I have ever read by author Kelly Armstrong. I am delighted to say it will not be my last. The Gathering is the first book in the trilogy entitled Darkness Rising. Armstrong’s urban fantasy brings us supernatural elements, Indian lore, romance and a town full of secrets. The tale grabbed me from page one, and while the pace wasn’t mind-boggling I enjoyed every minute of it.
Night Road by Kristen Hannah has been in my TBR pile forever, I was gifted it when I first received my Nook. This month, I participated in a challenge on Goodreads. I partnered up with a member and they selected a book from my TBR pile for me to read. Since I am also participating in the 2012 TBR pile challenge this worked out perfectly for me. I think this sat in my pile for so long, because I tend to avoid surreal storylines.
