5 stars - OMG what a perfect end to an incredible series that I adored! I will admit to being terrified to read this book. The ending of this incredible series that I have loved so much - would things work out? Would Alex and Aiden get a HEA? Would Ares get his butt kicked? Was there any way this brilliant author could make things work out? Oh, I can't tell you any of that but I will tell you that I stressed. I cried. I screamed. I gasped. I sputtered. WTH? Really? OMG! Did that just happen? Are you freaking kidding me? Yep, that just about sums it up. It's an emotional ending to a brilliant series. Alex is broken from her fight with Ares. She's not the same and something is really wrong with her. She's not sure she's the one to lead the army of awesomeness and she may be right. She steps out of character a lot but with good reason. One, she had been through a lot and two, something was definitely up. And that is the brilliance of this last book. Armentrout keeps us guessing and hopping throughout. It's not just leading up to one big bang near the end, no the unexpected is popping up everywhere - especially with Alex. Aiden. Hot damn, I didn't think I could love this boy more but I do. He stands by Alex. He sacrifices for Alex. He's totally jealous, which is super cute. He takes some serious licks in this book but that boys love knows no end. I was proud of him. I fell all over for him. I want to hug him and cuddle him and....yeah I know he's Alex's but I can dream can't I? I have to say something about Seth. I have never been a Seth fan. I saw through him from the first time I met him. Shallow and self-centered, I never thought he cared for Alex. I never saw the self-sacrifice that Aiden constantly showed. But Seth has redeemed himself. That is all I have to say about that. The story is fast paced and, oh, so good. I couldn't put it down. Really, this book kept surprising me. Every time I thought I had something figured out, things would turn and I was stunned. My beloved characters went through so much and I right along with them. This whole world evolved and I admit to liking the result. I freaking LOVED the ending. It's perfect. Just perfect. My fear about reading it was justified and unfounded. While I hate to see this series end, I love the way it does it. And as long as I can re-read and have more JLA books, I'm a happy reader. If you have been reading this series, then RUN and get this one NOW. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading the Covenant series, then start. It's great paranormal YA.

GREAT END TO THE SERIES! This was one of my most anticipated 2013 reads and despite having the ending spoiled for me just hours before release, I am HAPPY to say I was not disappointed! SENTINEL was fast-paced, action-packed, delivering an Olympus-sized kick in the feels. Overflowing with love, sacrifice, redemption and plenty of Aiden St. Delphi, SENTINEL was everything I hoped for and a fantastic way to the Covenant Series! Alex is still courageous, brave and full of badarsery! Aiden amps up the awesomeness and even Seth gets a chance to show what he's truly made of. There is a battle of EPIC PROPORTIONS leaving no one unscathed, the gods included, and the ultimate sacrifice is paid. HOWEVER, this ending makes sense, serves a purpose and most importantly - it will not leave you rocking back and forth in a corner. READ IT.LOVE IT.HAVE A CUPCAKE.

This one is definitely my favorite of the series! I felt a roller coaster of emotions throughout this book, especially at the end. I was not expecting everything to go the way it did, but I was happy with it. I love Alex and Aiden together, they are absolutely adorable! Love this series! =D

I'm such a fan on the Lux series, so upon seeing the Covenant series by JLA , I knew I had to read it. It sucked me in with In the 1st chapter on the first book. Amazing series

Oh my. Why did I wait so long to read this? I did forget some details on what happened but thankfully there were hints that helped me refresh my memory. I was glued to the pages. It was interesting to see how they planned on defeating that jerk of a God and how everything played out. Man those turn of events had me upset at first. I really didn't expect that to happen but it made me happy on the end. It worked itself out for the better. Yay. This book had it all for me. I laughed quite a bit, cried a few times, swooning over the relationship between Alex & Aiden, satisfaction over Seth's choices, and all around good feeling when I finished it. Good ending to the series.

Wonderful ending

This is the best ending to a series I have ever read! Like some people have said, its not a happily ever after. The ending is real but it doesn't gut you (looking at you Mockingjay!) I feel like with most series the last book is so rushed but this one was perfect. A great ending to one of my favorite series.

This is the kind of series they should turn into a tv series or better yet...a movie. I was so totally not expecting that type of ending but it was fitting. I laughed and shed a few tears here and there throughout but loved all the characters.....well except for lucian and ares. It probably didn't really need to be 5 books long but it was a great story!

Originally posted on my blog: Tangled Up In Books I honestly do not think that I will ever be able to think of this book and not have at least a few tears build up in my eyes. It was heart wrenching and really packed a punch in the feels. But it was also beautiful and amazing and I am just so full of emotions. I'm not ready to be back in the real world right now, where these characters and these places don't actually exist. I just want to crawl back into my mind and wrap myself up in everything Covenant and stay there for a while. I hate...hate saying goodbye to such an amazing series. But since I have to, all I can say is Sentinel was the most amazing and perfect sendoff there could have been. There isn't an ounce of disappointment in me. I have never truly been as happy with how a series ended. Ever. --The closest furie's smile was edged with unimaginable cruelty. 'The gods have heard Apollo's pleas and have responded.' The thing that will always have me turning to a JLA book without question or hesitation is the fact that she excels at both world building and character creation. When you're in the moment and you're reading one of her books everything feels so real. Like how it was reading this series for me, I felt like at any second Apollo could just pop up beside me and scare the ever loving crap out of me. I know, wishful thinking. But you know what I mean right? She has that thing... that spark, that really pulls you into her stories and allows you to feel and see everything. --'Do you know what I think about when it's quiet, Alex? I think about all the bad things I've done.' I was all over the place through this series when it came to my feelings on Seth. I started out on the first two books being 100% Team Seth. Sure, he was cocky. Like cocky to the point that you'd find yourself thinking, "if he opens his mouth one more time...I'm gonna hit him!" But still there was just something about him that I gravitated towards from the moment he first came around. By the time I finished Deity my feelings were reversed and found myself instead wishing horrible things would happen to him. In a lot of ways he broke my heart and I wasn't sure if it would be possible to like his character again. So imagine my surprise to find myself reading Sentinel and finding some redeemable qualities in him and feeling like maybe there is hope for Seth after all. He still did a lot of horrible things and he's not perfect, but he's also not the monster I was ready to brand him as either. I'm sorry but I cannot help but love Seth. --A throat cleared behind us, and then Apollo said, 'Seriously, you two? It's not like you're keeping a god waiting or anything.' Even though I got that loving feeling back for Seth, the guy has nothing on Aiden St. Delphi. It's like every time I moved on to the next book in this series I would be blown away by how amazing and sweet and just wonderful this guy is. If he didn't show kinks in his armor every now and again I would honestly think this guy was too good to be true. I love how Alex and Aiden balance each other out and can read each other so well. There were so many Aiden and Alex feels. So. Many. Forbidden romance is one of my favorite tropes to read about. I loved how when people would give them dirty looks and openly stare Aiden would just squeeze her hand or something in a reassuring way and Alex would do something crazy pants like she is and flip them off. Gods I love Alex! --'We are!' Deacon shouted from inside the Expedition. 'I've already got the first road game picked out, so freaking hurry!' There are so, so many amazing characters to this series though. So many. The one who comes closest to the way I feel for Aiden and Alex is Aiden's younger brother Deacon. His nonstop energy and enthusiasm along with his charm and how freaking hilarious he is are just so endearing. I swear there must be something in the St. Delphi gene pool because there's just something about those boys. They're totally opposite for the most part, Aiden is the serious and responsible type whereas Deacon is the goofy and life of the party type. Both perfect in their own ways. Like I said though, there were so many amazing characters. Too many to go on and on about each one and I both love and hate when that happens. Having that many lovable characters makes it hard to accept that, in books like these, not everyone is going to make it to the end. --'And now it's happening again. We are going to war for you¿for the gods. People will die. My friends and the people I love could die! I could die!' This book wasn't exactly an easy one to read either. There is so much going on. I mean we're dealing with gods and war. It is intense and I was so freaked out for most of this book. I would be reading and even when nothing was happening...yet, my stomach would be a huge bundle of knots. I was dreading the possible chaos and death and destruction that could be every time I turned a page. I couldn't have been more on the edge of my seat. And that's the thing about paranormal/urban fantasy type books by JLA. She will bring you to the brink where everything is going to hell and characters will have to go to the extreme to try to put everything back together again. Things that have the potential to make the already intense and scary things go from bad to incredibly worse. Call me crazy, but I love feeling like that. Like, how could there possibly be hope? Because it makes the end results just that much sweeter. --The lopsided smile on Apollo's face spread. 'Well, I would never kiss and tell.' The thing is though, it's not all fear and sadness and chaos. I'm always amazed by how much her books can make me laugh out loud. I'm not just talking some quiet little chuckle to myself. We're talking the kind that just bursts out of you. I love that just about every possible human emotion I could feel, I'm sure I felt when reading this series. There's this huge part of me that is kicking my own behind for taking so freaking long to put forth any effort to read it. I mean, I could have been feeling this bookish high a year ago! Oh well, at least I'm finally feeling it now. These feelings are something that aren't going to be going away any time soon.

I want to give this book more than five stars. Because I gave Apollyon five stars and this is even better. Because this is how you end a young adult series. Not a happily ever after, but it's satisfying and leaves us with hope instead of despair. Because it didn't ruin the entire series for me for a change. This final book in the series is almost non-stop action, but not to the point that it becomes exhausting. The author slows it down enough to allow us to catch our breath before ramping it back up again. I'm not someone who is easily moved to tears. Just ask my husband. He cries during movies before I do. But a few really moving, bittersweet, and heartwarming moments managed to wet my Sahara-dry eyes. Plot Sentinel is almost entire plot-driven, although there are still a few moments of character development that are like the most delicious cherry on top of the perfect sundae. With everything in the previous books leading to war, war has finally come and Alex and her friends must fight for everything they know, love, and believe in. And because it's war, people get hurt and people die, but there are no senseless deaths. Each death serves a purpose, to move the plot, to further the story. And as painful as it is to lose characters we love, when well-done, they make the story richer. World Building If possible, the world building is even more complete this time around. It was already incredibly well developed, but the more the world unfolds, the more there seems to be to still learn. Like the TARDIS, it's bigger on the inside. Characters The characters in Sentinel are still fascinating, still fully developed, but they had room to grow, and that's exactly what they do. Seth is the boy I always knew he would be and that was beautiful to see. Watching Alex accept her fate with grace and dignity was worth the wait. And Aiden...what can I say, he is the ultimate book boyfriend to the very end. Top Five Things I Love About  Sentinel 1. The action. There's a lot of it and it's all really well done. 2. Alex and Aiden. Still the cutest young adult couple in all of Greek mythology. 3. Seth. Seth is back and better than ever. 4. Apollo and Alex. There is a really bittersweet scene between the two of them that just really works. 5. The end. A completely satisfying conclusion to a fun series. Bottom Line The perfect example of how to wrap up a young adult series in a satisfying way.
