Deity (Covenant #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
November 6th 2012 by Spencer Hill Press
"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...
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Sometimes wanting to give someone the benefit of the doubt turns around and bites you in the arse. But what is Alex to do when secrets are kept and she doesn't not learn of the deceit until it is too late.
Honestly, I do not know how to review Deity without giving away spoilers but I will be sure not to. Deity is the third book in the series and it's definitely a DO NOT MISS read. If you are a uber fan like me there is nothing compared to reading the content of Deity for yourself. My emotions were on high alert as I read chapter after chapter. First book I was Team Aiden, Second book I was still Team Aiden but had a soft spot for Sam, and now book three I am fill force Team Aiden. Aiden is the epitome of a man. There is nothing he will not do for Alex.
As Deity reads on you will not be disappointed. There were no dull moments and no lulls in the plot. Perhaps, I am just too far enamored that I no longer notice any faults but I doubt that. Ultimately, every page was pure entertainment. My bottom line when reading a book is... Did I enjoy it? Answer is YES. I loved Deity to no end.
My review fudges over any details because the betrayal is gradual and does not fully manifest until the latter and I want readers to be on the end of their seats like I was. Heck, if I had to endure the... "What's going to happen?".... then so do you. Bwahahaha *evil laugh*
All in all, Deity, as is the series, is mind-blowing. The progression of the series is spot on and even though book one was reminiscent of the VA series, it has held its own and has broken away and is its own creation. Love it all!
