"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...
In this book Alex reaches the consequences of all the things she have made. Maybe she has been reckless in the past and straight forward when it’s about making choices but in this book everything falls apart. When Half Blood has been an introduction to this world and Pure the breaking point, this is the book of the ravage from everybody to Alex.
Or maybe it’s not that strong but I see it that way. What I’m completely sure is that this story becomes darker and darker with each book. And I’m very happy with that because it’s very mature and complex, it really makes you think hard about everything because it also feature underneath stuff that happen in real life.
What I really like the most is the fact that, at this point of the series, everything is based on the action and the intrigue of the world and not the romantic aspect of it. We have still a glimpse of the love between Alex and Aiden (which I love BTW) but mostly we have the emotional consequences of the war and all the things going on around the gang.
Overall, this has been one of the best series I have the opportunity to read so far. Each book is getting better and better in every aspect: story, characters, emotions, maturity, complexity, and everything. Definitely, JLA is a wonderful writer and I invite you to read this book (and series – you need to read the previous two, first).
Will I re-read it?

The heartbreaking 3rd installment of the #Covenant series, Deity by @JLArmentrtout will keep you at the edge with each page! Don't miss it!
# 1 New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout Lives in West Virginia. 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.
