"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 Take:

 Ever feel the world is waiting for time to pass by for the worst to come, for Alex time is slipping away and she has more questions that she needs answers. Of course being the Appolyon is something if not to get her out of trouble, but how far can Alex until what she does is too far. Seth of course is trying is hardest to get her to her potential, he wants her to Awaken even quicker than her birthday, that is so not happening right? Seth has another thing coming if he thinks he can bring the doom even more quickly. Of course the one person she always relied on isn't really talking to her and keeping his distance, Aiden. Who said men were not complicated didn't know that love comes with a price.

That price of course will never come to light, because Aiden will never touch her again and with his distance all she has is Seth. Yeah life is complicated and the gods hasn't seen much. With each passing day, and with just one touch from Seth it seems dooms day is approaching much more rapidly. Of course add in the fact that Seth isn't the only wacko, Lucian is calling the shots and he wants more than he can bargain for. Finding out you have a god in your midst is also a surprise no one saw coming. Yup life is tough so who needs enemies when clues couldn't be any more clearer.

The Covenant Series has never felt so awesome, In Half-Blood you saw that Alex is a key of sorts, in Pure, Alex was given a trial of sorts, passing it was not only a test but more than that. So getting into Deity was easy because even there is a clock, you also get that Alex has no control over her decisions and Seth is a idiot to think he can get one over on any of us. Alex is strong and with her friends she is stronger. This chapter in Alex's life was an amazing turn with so many twists, of course some questions where answered and a 100 more where asked. Jen captures the audience and throws them into a world that we all wish were apart of, because Aiden is out there he has to be. I loved this as much as the first too and am so looking forward to more of Alex's story because I am not ready to say goodbye just yet. With pure imagination we get a half-blood living on Deity island a chance to prove the gods her fate is yet unwritten. 

5/5 Stars - Aiden omg i loved him he is so swoon worthy

Don't forget to check out the rest of the tour and to stop by again on Nov. 7th for a surprise of sorts.
