"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...
I was stalking the author for when this book came out. Then, when I read it, I was hooked. I thought I wrote a review for it, but it turns out I didn't post it online. Oops.
Anyway, Deity was my favorite book of the series so far. I flew through it and reread it right afterwards. Jennifer Armentrout's series just get better and better. There are no words to describe the pure awesomeness of this book.
There are new developments that I didn't see coming, but now I can reread the first two books and see all the foreshadowing.
I like Aiden a lot better in this book than the last. He's changed. About Seth, I just want to punch him.
Alex is still a great main character. She's still strong and sarcastic.
The secondary characters became important. Sorta enemies become sorta friends.
The story really flows and Jennifer just keeps on delivering shockers.
The ending was a cliffhanger that left me demanding Elixir, which came out the next day. But those hours waiting for the novella made me pretty much insane.
