Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.
Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.
The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn't the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.
Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.
Jennifer Armentrout has done it again. Another great book in the Covenant series.
I enjoyed this book a lot. The story makes a nice progress as well as the characters. We get to see a lot more of the gods and even get a look in the underworld which I enjoyed a lot.
Some old character come back to the story , some in a nice way and some in not such a nice way.
Just a few parts were a little slow in my opinion but it didn’t really affect the overall story.
But overall the book was packed with action, humor and romance. It was hard to put down. The end was just wonderful and very touching.
The characters have grown so much.
I’m happy to see that Alex has matured a lot since the last book and is less reckless. She is still has her snarky humor which I love.
Aiden…. Omg he is just great and I love that he is all open about his feelings now and pretty much tells everyone that he will do whatever it takes to safe Alex. He is even funny, which we didn’t get to see a in the other books.
Seth, he is in the story and not in the story. Mostly through the Apollyon bond. We don’t get to see a lot of him in this book and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen to him.
I really like Apollo and that he is more and more involved.
Overall, I give it 4 ½ stars and can’t wait to see how the series ends in the next book.
“We had no idea what waited ahead of us, other than the big, fat unknown, and most likely a big, fat kick in the face. The gravity of that was killing me-killing us I squared my shoulders. "Release the Kraken!" Several sets of eyes settled on me. "What?" I gave a lopsided shrug. "I've always wanted to yell that since I saw that movie. Seemed like the perfect moment.”
“Alex fainted—" "I didn't faint," I grumbled, feeling my cheeks flush. Aiden's lip curved up on one side. "Okay. She was suddenly not walking or talking anymore. During that time, she saw Seth. Apparently he used Hermes to pull her in." "Hermes?" Apollo hissed—actually hissed like an angry lion. "That little, punk-ass bitch."
“You two should really get a room," Apollo said from out of nowhere. "My poor eyes..." I groaned. Even in his true identity, he still had impeccable timing. "Gods," Aiden spat. He pulled back, casting Apollo a disgusted look over my head. "Do you get off on sneaking up on us?" "You probably don't want to know what I get off on.”
“Wait. Is this book about aliens?” She snatched it back from me. “Yes.” “Really?” “But they’re hot aliens.” She tapped on the guy’s face with one thin finger. “And he can be my ET any day.”
