There is need. And then there is Fate...
Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool.
Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her.
When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon... and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude... or killing her.
When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.
Check out my review of Half-Blood (Covenant #1)
“Seth threw me a mischievous grin. ‘I can’t have Marcus just walking in on us. What if I want to snuggle on these cold New York nights?’ My frown increased. ‘We don’t snuggle.’ He dropped his arm over my shoulder, and the scent of mint and something wild tickled my nose. ‘How about we cuddle?’ ‘We don’t do that either.’ ‘But you’re my cuddle bunny. My little Apollyon cuddle—’ I punched him in the side.”
“’Ever since I’ve met you, I’ve wanted to break every rule.’ Aiden turned away, the muscles in his neck tensing. He sighed. ‘You’ll become the center of someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth.'”
Favorite Character: Seth. Like in Half-Blood, his cocky and sarcastic persona reeled me in. I found myself wanting more of Seth, and less of everyone else.
“I stared at the ceiling of the gymnasium, little black splotches dancing in front of me.”
My Musings: This series just keeps getting better and better. This book was a very exciting read, and I didn’t want to put it down for even a minute.
In this novel, we follow Alex at the Council Session, where she learns that there is someone out there who wants to kill her or put her in servitude before she Awakens. The novel is full of twists and turns as Alex, Seth, and Aiden try to keep Alex out of servitude. Armentrout’s prose was unbelievable as always: the book was a hard core page turner, and there was never a dull moment.
