Aiden St. Delphi will do anything to save Alex. Even if it means doing the one thing he will never forgive himself for. Even if it means making war against the gods.

My Take:

Since they all left Deity Island, Aiden has made sure to protect Alex even from herself. Who knew that a birthday can start a feud, the thing is though because of the first Alex blows it and so move again they must do. Time is something gained for Aiden and with each passing day the first can be that much closer. Lucian is raising an army and Seth wants Alex so he can bring forth the wrath on all of them. The one thing Alex told Aiden was that she didn't want to lose herself, the last thing she wanted was to be put into servitude. With the Elixir time is given back to them and with time the gods can come up with other ways to get to Seth. 

Everyone knows what the influence of the Elixir can do and if given too much that person stands a chance of not coming back. With time running out and the drug taking away Alex bit by bit, Aiden has but one choice to make. To win her heart back he must be willing to go against the gods themselves, who said love isn't a sacrifice. 

This was an amazing novella to read because it gave all the insight of how much Aiden feels about Alex and what he is willing to do to protect her. His choice was the hardest and even though it even broke me, I know the process broke him as well. Aiden is the guy who would end up sacrificing himself for Alex even with his own life. Of course you add in the fact the gods showing up you get a wide range that time really isn't on either side. The gods themselves are willing to sacrifice innocents to stop Lucian and Seth, and since Alex is the key to their demise why not prevent her with a means of escape. At times I saw the Aiden from the first book and also saw the new Aiden willing anything. He is in love and with her just sitting he is happy, that is pure love guys. Her presence alone makes him feel safe, I heart him even more now, so thank you jennifer for giving us this much needed gift through the eyes of a guy worth talking about.

5/5 Stars -- Swoon worthy
