    Oh. My. Gods. There are no words to express how much I loved thi

    Oh. My. Gods. There are no words to express how much I loved this book. Deity was absolutely amazing. I had very high expectations for this book, and it lived up to all of them. Deity is definitely the best Covenant book so far, and one of the best books I've read this year. Apollyon is going to have to completely blow my mind to top this!

    Deity starts off at a fast pace. There's a huge OMG moment in the first chapter itself, and I don't even know how many there are in the whole book; every chapter will have you gasping in shock. Most of the events in Deity lead up to Alex's Awakening, and there are so many twists and turns that you'll be reeling by the end.

    Alex makes me laugh so much! She's feisty and witty and I don't know how anyone can possibly not love her. She's also incredibly self-sacrificing in this book, and I got to see a different side of her here - a more vulnerable side. Alex is afraid of Awakening, of becoming someone she's not. That fear leads her to do a lot of things, and it changes her. She's still as reckless as always, though.

    Aiden. *Sigh* Aiden was perfect in Deity. Absolutely perfect. After what he did for Alex in Pure, I knew it was only a matter of time before he breaks his amazingly strong self-control. Thank goodness it happened in Deity! I can't believe Alex had no idea how Aiden felt about her before; it was glaringly obvious to me. Aiden would never let anything happen to Alex. Simple as that.

    It's sweet how protective he is of Alex even though he knows she can take care of herself. Plus, he's so comforting with her. Alex can go to him for anything, and she has complete trust in him. They would gladly give up everything for each other, and I don't know whether that will help them or cause them pain in future books.

    Alright, now we come to Seth. Oh, Seth. Why? I don't want to give anything much away, but Seth changes so much in Deity. So much it's unbelievable. I really liked Seth in Half-Blood and Pure, and I still liked him in the first part of Deity. He's funny and witty, and he can make Alex laugh at any time.

    Alex and Seth have a lot of steamy moments at the beginning of the novel, but the tension between them grows as Alex nears her birthday, the day she Awakens. Seth is slowly changing for the worse, becoming blinded by power. Although, even after he changes, there are moments of hesitation, of vulnerability, which make me think that there is still hope for him. There has to be. I know a lot of people who've read Deity hate Seth now, but I can't bring myself to feel the same. There's still hope. We find out about Seth's childhood in this book, and it made me feel so sorry for him! I desperately want him to redeem himself in Apollyon.

    Another thing I loved about Deity - Some of the gods make an appearance! It was awesome to witness them in action, and to see their personalities. One of the gods we get to meet is the one and only Apollo! Yes, that's right. I absolutely loved him. And I loved how everyone else treats him with so much respect, but not Alex. Oh no, Alex just says and does whatever she feels like, as usual.

    Deity is breathtaking, and it completely blew me away. It stunned, amazed, and electrified me all at once. I don't think a lot of books can do that. Jennifer, I bow down to you. I really do. If you haven't read the Covenant series yet, what are you waiting for? Every second reading this series is a second well spent. Apollyon, I can't wait to get my hands on you!

    Absolutely Amazing

    Wow…talk about putting my heart and my head through the wringer. This book was an absolutely amazing and perfect third book for this series.

    There are so many things that happen in this book that you are afraid to give any of it away. You want everyone to experience it with fresh eyes like I did. I have to say though where I thought book two gave much for team Seth to lust after I feel like book three is definitely for team Aiden and oh yes I’m on team Aiden. I wasn’t sure he could get any yummier than he already is but he most certainly did. We see Aiden really come out of his shell in the book and I mean really. I just wanted to crawl into the pages and hug him.

    Oh Alex, so naive sometimes. There are things I wanted to scream at her, it’s kind of like watching a horror movie and you want to yell, “Don’t open the door!!” At least there were moments I felt that way. I can see her reasons for her actions but sometimes I just slapped my forehead and though you silly silly girl. Alex has evolved so much through this series and it amazes me how she is still growing and maturing. I think by the end of the series she will be a force to reckon with and it’s more than just being an Apollyon.

    I continue to be team Aiden all the way, but I never doubted I would be. I also continue to love the side characters; each one has their importance to the book that cannot be ignored. Which is good since Deacon will be my brother-in-law when Aiden marries me…… :o)

    Enter the Gods; you didn’t think they could stay out of this forever. I’m a big fan of mythology and sometimes books will reference them but not actually bring them in. Well they are a part of this series now in a big way and I love it. The part that they play in the grand scheme of things fits perfectly and is well done.
    Romance? Ya this book has it to the nines. I actually set the book down and walked away for a day because I wanted to savor the wonderful moment before Sh*t hit the fan. Hit the fan it did, this book had me on my toes like no other. I don’t want to give anything away because it’s one of those books that you want to experience every moment for the first time yourself.

    To sum it up, this book is absolutely Amazing!! I finished it, and then stared at it….maybe hugged it a little. Then went online to stare at the release date for Apollyon and then roamed around not being able to read another book since this one had me in knots. So I say run out and buy it!! Stand outside the store at midnight if you have to!!

    You know how sometimes a series can get a bit stale? Well, that is NOT the case with the Covenant Series. In my opinion, this series gets better and better as the series grows. 




    Deity gave me some answers I needed, yet kept my blood pumping for more. I got the action-packed story that I love, but Deity is also filled with some really spectacular romantic moments. I mean seriously...Aiden is a dream. 




    There really isn't much I can say about this book, because you really just need to read the series. The Covenant Series is truly a gem of a series. If you haven't started it yet, what are you waiting for?




    Quotes:
    ~In the silence of the early morning, I admitted that there was no getting over Aiden. No matter what happened from here on out, my heart would remain his.-Loc 2535




    ~Horror stole my breath. And it struck me then. That was the difference between Aiden and Seth. No matter how badly Aiden would want to strike back or how much he wanted something, he would never risk me.-Loc 4758




    ~"Are you ok?" Aiden asked Deacon.
    He nodded slowly. "Yeah, I'm great. Nothing like witnessing a death match between gods when I'm trying to get some Cheetos."-Loc 5191

    "Best Covenant Book Yet!" Like always when I finishe

    "Best Covenant Book Yet!"


    Like always when I finished a JLA book, I am speechless. I finished Deity yesterday and my emotions are still all over the place, while I struggle to find a way of EVER talking about what this book did to my heart, and what it means for the Covenant series. Deity brings us back into the world of our beloved characters Alex, Aiden, and Seth, and then turns everything you think you know on its head, ending in a breath-taking cliff-hanger that made me literally screech with frustration. Everything here is heightened - the characters, the relationships, the emotions, and the stakes. With Deity, Jennifer L Armentrout has set herself apart from any other YA author in the industry these days, with a book I will never forget, for what it did. It made me fall in love with the characters all over again, and it broke my heart.

    I feel like I read Deity by holding my breath, because something was always happening to put these characters that I adore in new peril. Not only is her 18th birthday looming over Alex - she also has her connection to Seth to deal with, not to mention a few key players in her world who have it out for her. And then there's always the mystery of her feelings for Seth, and for Aiden. JLA's feisty heroine takes it all in classic Alex stride, but the scenes where she gave in to her emotions and admitted her fears really broke my heart. We saw a new, vulnerable side of Alex in Deity, and I have to say: I want more. I admire JLA SO much for showing us that Alex isn't just all spirit and fire - she's also very, very human, loving, courageous, and at her core, a girl facing so much more than she's ready for.

    I connected emotionally with Deity on so many levels, because I've come to really care about Alex. But by far the most profound bond was with Alex and Aiden. There were times in Pure where I waivered and found myself liking Seth, but Deity changed ALL OF THAT. Aiden finally showed that he DOES care about Alex, and just...the two of them make my heart beat faster in EVERY scene. The wealth of affection, trust, and respect between them is so beautiful, and it doesn't even compare to the bond between Alex and Seth. And oh, Alex and Aiden had some gorgeous, steamy scenes but none of that ever felt anything other than genuine. I found myself falling in love with Aiden all over again, even as I felt that sense of impending danger, and knew the sanctuary Alex and Aiden found wouldn't last.

    The ending of Deity shocked me into silence, then an outraged "What?!," and then just a sense of being heart-broken beyond words. Prepare yourselves because this is a wild, no-holds-barred ride that will jolt your heart in the end. I have a few theories on what the next book will hold, but ultimately, I'm just going to end this review by begging you to read Deity. It's intense, it's crazy, it's perfect. You'll laugh, cry, and swoon. You'll shake your head in denial, all the while reading faster. You NEED this book in your life.

    I was always proud to be Greek and believe that speaking Greek

    I was always proud to be Greek and believe that speaking Greek is a privilege and now it's one of those moments. Reading words like agapi mou, my love, and zoi mou, my life, made me extremely happy. I don't even know why I have to go over the same procedure I do with all the books I read on Goodreads. It's pretty obvious. 5 stars and one of the best books published in 2012. I decided to start reading the Covenant series a while ago because of what other readers and bloggers wrote about Aiden. So, I gave it a shot. And what a shot that was! The characters, the plot, the twists and finally the cliffhanger were exceptional.

    Now back to the story. Alex is a step before becoming the Apollyon and the fact that Seth can't keep his hands off her doesn't help. Seth, or Cuddle Bunny, is still one of the hottest guys and he's also the only guy who's trying to win Alex's heart, even when it belongs to a special pure-blood. But he has his humor as his #1 weapon. His lines are delightful.

    “Seth?”
    “Yeah?”
    “You were in my dream.”
    “Please tell me we were naked.”

    “Our training was rather…exhausting. You know, there's a lot of moving, sweating, thrust—“
    “Seth,” I snapped

    I wanted to touch him.
    “I know what you're feeling right now. I totally approve of it.”

    Alex loves them and she tries to accept that she and Aiden don't have a future as a couple. But when Seth announces that he has to accompany Lucian back to the New York Covenant, she wants to go with him because her father is a servant there. There is no way Seth will let her follow him and that's when everything changes.

    Because the Order of Thanatos, Death in Greek, wants Alex dead. And you know what? The Order gets its wish. Alex dies and goes to the Underworld, where her best-friend, Caleb, awaits and for a dead guy he's pretty funny.

    “No. Persephone owed me one. We were playing Mario Kart Wii and I let her win. I crashed in my favor.”
    “You have the Wii down here?”
    “What? We get bored. Especially Persephone, when she's down here during these months. Usually Hades doesn't play, thank the gods. He freaking cheats.”

    But fate or maybe one god in particular brings her back to life and now she has to stay at Aiden’s house for her protection and that brings them close. Very close. And that's when the best moment in this book, make that the series, occurs. Aiden confesses his true feelings to Alex. He can't hide how deeply and madly in love he is with her and she returns the feeling. The outcome? A night full of love and adoration.

    “ I wanted a piece of you with me always. No matter, what.”
    I shuddered. “But I don't…I don't have anything of you.”
    “ Yes, you do. You'll have a piece of my heart forever. Even if your heart belongs to someone else.”

    After that, they're both ready to face everything this decision will bring as long as they're together. Although they have far more dangerous things to take care of. And these things are Lucian, who has gone crazy and he's thirsty for…power and SETH, Lucian's weapon and means of success. But the gods are not happy, not at all and three of them, starting with Poseidon who will do everything , even cause the deaths of innocent people. Then we have Hades, who wants Alexandra to follow him in the Underworld but then Artemis appears — she's pretty cool for a goddess —who saves Alex and reveals a secret about her family tree that takes her by surprise.

    “So I will say it one more time just in case Persephone has befuddled that brain of yours—stand down.”
    Artemis replaced the arrow back in her quiver and gave Aiden a sexy little grin. “ They just keep getting yummier.”

    So, when they finally get away from the crazy-version of Seth and the gods’ wrath, everyone is waiting for Alexandra to Awaken. And when she does…that's how Deity ends. So frustrating. I hate it when they do that. Cliffhanger,again!

    But still, it's one of the best books I've read and the wait for Apollyon, the fourth installment in the Covenant series, will be…frustrating! What else?

    So good!! No matter how hard headed Alex is, I find myself always rooting for the girl. And Seth! He's such a mystery but I'm sure we'll be figuring him out soon. I'm a huge fan of Greek mythology and I love how in this book (spoiler alert) some of the Gods make an appearance and we get to really see how their powers and their attitudes coincide with one another. Whenever the Gods would appear, I was greatly entertained and very amused!

    Deity is action-packed and full of romance, intrigue, and suspen

    Deity is action-packed and full of romance, intrigue, and suspense. I could not put this book down, and I was up until 3am reading it when I had to wake up at the crack of dawn the next day and drive 10 hours. Not a good combination. However, this book was definitely worth the sacrifice. Alex grows a ton as a character, the book has plenty of Aiden and Seth, so no matter which team you're on, you'll be happy. Also, there are some pretty amazing surprises. You will not be disappointed with this installment of the Covenant series, but you will be begging for the next book as soon as you finish this one. It's just that good.

    Alex's character growth was amazing to me. She started trying to think instead of just running head first into a bunch of stupid, and she also became more selfless. A lot of that was Aiden's influence. He kept an eye on her quite a bit, but she made some good decisions for herself. She spent a lot of this novel extremely terrified of her Awakening, and I can't blame her. She still tried to do what was best for everyone, though. 

    The relationships between Aiden and Alex and Seth and Alex got a lot more complicated in this novel. I have also switched from team Seth to team Aiden. I'm not going to tell you why, but Aiden really won me over this time. I also like Marcus better now that I got to see a little more of his personality. 

    The plot was amazingly captivating, and action and suspense were nonstop. I could not have put this book down, even if I'd wanted to! So many people are out to get Alex that it's impossible to tell who is on her side and who wants her dead. Many of the characters aren't who we thought they were, and there are a lot of surprises. There are also a lot of attempts on Alex's life. Additionally, the pacing was perfect. All of that makes for a quick and enthralling read. 

    My only complaint with this book is that it ends on a cliffhanger. I want the next installment now, haha. I'm not very patient, so the wait is already killing me. I'm in for a rough road before Apollyon is released. 

    Overall, I'd recommend this book (and series) to anyone. Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of my favorite authors, and Deity does not disappoint. I can't wait to see what happens next.

    I love this book! Seriously, it's amazing. Aiden is completely swoon-worthy, and Alex is a spunky individual who remains strong when all odds are stacked against her. She is a good role model, and very entertaining :) I definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes YA fantasy or romance

    After the crazy ending in Pure, I devoured Deity the moment I go

    After the crazy ending in Pure, I devoured Deity the moment I got my hands on it. Like the rest of Jennifer L. Arementrout's books, once you start, there is no stopping. I really enjoyed the new setting in the last book, but it was nice to get back to the familiarity of the Covenant in this book. 




    Alex and Seth seem to get closer in this book, and I love the friendship slash sometimes intimate relationship that they share. They are always making fun of one another, and although many people look down on Alex's recklessness, I like that it is what Seth admires in her. They kind of boarder the line of friendship into something more, but there is something about Seth that I don't trust despite the fact that he seems like a nice guy and in this book-we learn a lot about Seth, and let's just say that those who haven't read this book yet are in for a surprise.




    Then there's Aiden, who is a big enigma who is as frustrating as he is attractive. A wall also breaks inside of Aiden, and we learn that despite having as much self control as a nun, he is human and we get to see him at his most vulnerable state.




    The action and suspense in this book definitely is piking up, but it's not so much a blood bath as it was in Pure and as it probably will be in the next book. There is a lot of information being put on the table in this book, and it is a lot to take in trust me, but don't get overwhelmed because things are about to heat up even more.




    I think Deity has to be my favorite one so far-I enjoy all of the history in this book, and linking of lineage between the Gods and their offspring. We learn why things are the way that they are, and learn that a lot of "concrete truths" are actually nothing more than a load of lies. Now that the truth is finally breaking free, chaos and confusion is embedded in all of the characters and there is no going back to the old ways now.

    My favorite of the series so far! OhMygods...Jennifer L. Arment

    My favorite of the series so far!

    OhMygods...Jennifer L. Armentrout has done it again! I could not put this book down, even when it literally fell apart in my hands from the heat. (Seriously, the glue on the binding melted off and Chapter 25 fell out onto my lap.) My first thought was, "Wow, Aiden is too hot for the pages!" *winks*

    In this third installment in the Covenant Series, Deity brings all the things we love about JLA's writing to it's pages; blood pumping action, bittersweet romance, witty humor and heart-stopping suspense. And this ending is...*clutches chest*... intense! I went from laughing hysterically to having my heart handed to me on a titanium covered platter in a matter of sentences. This is truly one of the most creative and entertaining series' I've ever read.

    Deity picks up where Pure left off and we find Alex and Seth back on Deity Island where they're pretty much attached at the hip or rather, their marks of the Apollyon. Alex has had little time to deal with what happened in the Catskills and all it could mean for she and Aiden. Her internal battle between love and Fate continues and even though she is dead-set on graduating and becoming a Sentinel, her role as the second Apollyon may super-seed her wants. Her heart belongs Aiden but the akasha running through her body pulls her closer towards Seth whenever he's around. And he's always around. Seth amps ups their "training" and Alex suspects he does so in the hopes of her Awakening early. (Things she "does not want".) He continues to assure her that everything will be better and together, they'll be able to bring about change. But is it the kind of change Alex wants?

    Things become even more complicated when Aiden is assigned to guard Alex while Seth is away on a super seekrit Apollyon mission. The time they spend together allows them to explore their feelings for one another and in the process, they uncover an ugly truth about the past and a plot designed to take Alex out before her birthday. It seems history is set to repeat itself unless something or someone changes it. Alex also learns that trust doesn't mean the same to everyone and her reckless, knee-jerk reaction, which is only balanced out by her willingness to put others first, could have deadly consequences.

    As her birthday quickly approaches, so does the threat of losing everything she holds dear. And when the gods finally show up, all Hades will break loose leaving a path of death and destruction in their wake. Alex may not be able to stop her Awakening from happening but she and everyone around her can only hope that her natural strength will be enough to keep her from losing herself and her heart in the process. *fingers crossed*

    Jennifer writes her characters in such a way that I'm always left feeling ALL THE FEELS. We meet some new faces in Deity but we also get to see different sides of familiar characters - some that will make you laugh, swoon and fan your face and others that will leave you choking on your own tears. Good times.

    The character who surprised me the most was Aiden. I've been a proud member of "Team Aiden" since Daimon but Deity had me swooning, OhMyAiden! Seth left me torn between wanting to hug him or punch him in the face and Deacon, Luke and Leon had me in fits of laughter. I love Alex but she really frustrated me, especially when she would make decisions that were not going to end well. I actually found myself yelling at her, "Don't do it! Don't do it!". (I have similar reactions to scary movie MC's who go against the instinct that tells them to "RUN!" but instead they feel the need to "check out" the noises coming from the kitchen. *rolls eyes* Everyone knows the kitchen is the favorite hiding spot of ALL THE BAD THINGS.)

    Fans of The Covenant Series will NOT be disappointed and Deity's end is so intense, it had me wishing my last name was Piperi so I could get a glimpse of what's to come in Apollyon.
