"History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time.”
Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday--to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she's a goner... and so is Aiden.
If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"--which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time--she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.
But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she's caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed... and destroyed.
Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate...
This book is so far the best of the series. I loved it so much.
Alex is dealing with everything going between her and Seth and her and Aiden all while everyone else seems to want her dead. She can’t trust many people anymore and is not sure who to trust anymore.
She makes some pretty surprising discoveries along the way.
Finally we learn more of Aiden and what he really is thinking. The same with Seth and what he is up to.
Some of the true Greek gods come into the picture and we get to learn more about all of them. Well most of them.
All together this is a great book with none stopping action and suspense. There were a few times I thought I'm going to have a heart attack or screaming my head off at the book .
I cannot wait to find out what the deal is between Deacon and Apollo.
The End was a killer and I’m just glad I have the next one already ready.
My favorite quotes:
“I'm afraid of never being allowed to feel what I do.”
“Don't look at me like I've kicked a baby Pegasus into the street.”
“Yeah, I'm great. Nothing like witnessing a death match between gods when I'm trying to get some Cheetos
“May I ask why you’re passing notes to Aiden?” He eyed the letter like it was a bomb.
“It’s a love note. I’m asking him to circle ‘yes’ or ‘no’ if he likes me.”
