I am a huge fan of Armentrout’s Lux series so I decided to give this one a shot since I’ve read all the great reviews. The main reason why I wasn’t all over this series was because many people compared it to Vampire Academy. As some of you may know, I adore the VA series so this could go either very well for me, or extremely bad. I decided to make the jump anyways.

While reading DAIMON, I didn’t feel like there were too many similarities. Yeah, Alex is a fighter and she is often seen as too impulsive like Rose, but I think I will have to wait until the next books to figure out how similar this series really is to Vampire Academy.

What I did notice was that there is an uncanny resemblance to Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series which deals with gods and their archenemies, the Daimon. Please tell me someone else noticed this as well. I mean, it seemed pretty obvious to me. DAIMON turned out to be a good mix of the two series. Blending two of my favorite series isn’t really such a bad thing I guess since I ended up enjoying much of this book. However, I think Armentrout does bring a lot of her own flavor to this book.

I never expected the amount of action that Armentrout was able to fit into his novella. It was very fast-paced and thrilling with a great amount of emotional depth. To be honest, I was surprised. I didn’t expect it to be that good! I guess I shouldn’t underestimate Armentrout anymore. She always seems to kick ass and snark while doing it. DAIMON was highly entertaining. I can’t wait to read more!

All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true.

Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write.

She is the author of the Covenant Series (Spencer Hill Press), the Lux Series (Entangled Teen), Don't Look Back (Disney/Hyperion) and a yet untitled novel (Disney/Hyperion), and new YA paranormal series with Harlequin Teen.

Jennifer also writes New Adult and Adult romance under the pen name J. Lynn. The Gamble Brothers Series (Tempting the Best Man/Tempting the Player) and Wait for You. Under her pen name, she is published with Entangled Brazen and HarperCollins.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

Good review! I haven’t read any books by Jennifer Armentrout though I did finally buy the first book in the Lux series because I’d been hearing so much about them. Now I just have to find the time to read it:)
