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…
Just when I thought that Jennifer couldn’t shock me with anything else, she pulls the rug out from under me in DEITY. Poor Alex can’t seem to catch a break no matter what she does! Words cannot express how much I both love DEITY and want to throw it across the room (in a good way). Jennifer sure knows how to bring the heat and after the events in DEITY, I think we may need to bring a firefighter in to extinguish the flames she ignited!
Everyone seems to have it in for Alex, especially after all the trouble she has caused among the Hematoi world. Alex has a lot of damage control to do, along with trying to figure out what’s going on between her and the hunky Seth and brooding Aiden. As if that wasn’t enough, new revelations are spiraling all over the place and it takes a lot for her to reign in her emotions. Truly, all I want is a happy ending for this tortured girl. Just when she thinks the stakes can’t get higher, they of course do. It’s going to take all of Alex to figure it all out and fight for what is right and protect her heart from some serious damage in the end. Oh and did I mention the part of her Awakening coming up? DEITY has it all in for Alex.
Whether you’re a Seth fan or an Aiden fan, you’re going to love DEITY, even if some of the things that take place aren’t exactly ideal for certain fans. I myself love both of these boys with all my heart and wish nothing but the best for them. Both have their shining moments in this book and my heart went pitter-patter in certain scenes involving one or the other. Alex is one lucky girl on the guy front, that’s for sure!
Fans of the Covenant series should not hesitate to pick DEITY up. Just be prepared for one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride and one MAJOR cliffhanger ending. But in the end, it’s worth it to be able to delve into a world where there are hot boys aplenty and surprises galore!
