From Goodreads: "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...
My Thoughts: SERIOUSLY Mrs. Armentrout?! HOW do you expect us fans to make it until April?! I'm dying over here!
Deity was by far the BEST JLA book out there, and that's saying something because we all know she's freaking epic. I don't even know what to say about this book, my brain is still in shock over all of its awesomeness. How do I go on? How can I even think about reading another book right now?! Yeah, it was that good. Luckily for us, Elixir (Covenant 3.5) is FREE and already out.
Ok, breathing now.
In Deity things get amped up pretty quickly. Everyone's relationships are moving fast and we're finding out who we can trust and who we can't. This book was seriously non stop, heart pounding action and plot twists with each page. I can't tell you how badly I wanted to call in sick for work just so I didn't have to stop to reading it. Part of what made this book so awesome is that we get a lot of questions answered, only to have new ones pop up. It was like a roller coaster ride that you didn't want to be over.
So, what are you waiting for?! Go read it!
