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 apologise if this review isn't up to my usual standard. I have had reviewers block on this one for about two weeks)
Deity is the third book in The Covenant Series. And I was completely torn on the rating I wanted to give it. Overall I enjoyed it! It was exciting and fast paced and the last 100pages omg epic! However, most of the first half of the book is very predictable.
Now, predictable isn't always a bad thing, because the book was still pretty awesome. However, I was expecting a lot more because the ending of Pure (Book 2) was one amazing cliffhanger. So my expections were high. As I said it wasn't really so much a bad thing because it's still well written and fast paced I just knew exactly where the story was going UNTIL the last 100 pages and that's where Jennifer turned the book on it's head and BAM the real story kicks off. It was outstanding and so exciting. I loved the last 100 pages and not to spoil it, that ending?? Oh. My, Freaking, God. I know a lot of people hated the ending but for me it was so exciting and just the right cliffhanger!!
Alex in this one drove me insane. I can't pinpoint the reason, she just rubbed me wrong way for most of the book. Same with Aiden (don't kill me lol) but then again I don't really like Aiden anyway. I don't get the attraction. Seth on the other hand....well....I heart me some Seth. He is far from perfect, he is selfish and dangerous but so exciting and there is never a dull moment when Seth is around. But overall, the three main characters make the story intriguing.
Overall, Deity is a must read. There is a few twists and turns in second half of the book and as I said the ending was EPIC! If you haven't started the series yet go now! Half-Blood (book 1) isn't exactly perfect and you may feel like you have read it before but it is still really enjoyable. Pure (book 2) is where Jennifer really shines as an author. Her writing is almost flawless and she has a way with words that just pulls the reader into the series.
