Now THAT, is how you end a book.
I have waited so, so long to finally read the last book in this series, and it surpassed my expectations like I never thought it could. I loved this book so much I can hardly put it into words.


Aiden and Alex were still the sweetest, most loving couple you can root for in this book which I really hoped would be the case. After what happened in the previous book you would think maybe Aiden would take a step back from Alex and le

While reading this book i come to this worthy notions about life:
- teen pregnancy is the bomb!
- man leather pants are having a comeback
- you are considered British if you end every sentence with the word LOVE
- sleeping with a boy in same bed always ends up in sex. Always (ergo)
- romance is dead
- if you don't PDA you are not considered "in love"
*(on the side note - the best place for PDA is an official war meeting)
- to be considered brilliant you just have to find a room full of morons.

"And because I love you, I am willing to die to save you from that. Don't you dare take that decision away from me."

Oh My Holy Gods! There are seriously no words to explain just how incredible this book is.

"I know," Apollo said, and his voice was surprisingly gentle. "I will do everything in my power to make sure that doesn't happen. I haven't let you down yet have I?"(...)

A generous two stars instead of one, because I'm just so happy the series has finally come to an end. All I need now is the last Lux installment to come out and then I won't ever have to read another JLA book again. I don't actually have that much of an issue with JLA's writing, it's just that her characters and plots are way too predictable and cheesy for my liking.

This book is a major heartbreak and the ending is a never-ending plot twist.

So much action. So many things happening in this book. Fights. Battles. Gods. This was mind-blowing. The best conclusion to this series that we could ever get.

All I wanted was for Alex and Aiden to be together because this kind of love deserves to keep on thriving on and on until the end of time. I'm grateful to Seth as much as I do not like him, I know he loves Alex and he, technically, does something awe-inspiring fo

My heart skipped a whole beat, and then sped up in recognition. Ah, I knew that voice. My heart and my soul knew that voice.

There was a time not all that long ago when I was grappling around trying to find something awesome to read…and I was out of inspiration. I had previously read the Lux series by this very author and had fallen in love, so I thought I’d take a chance and jump-jump into a story I had no clue what the blurb was talking about and give Armentrout another opportu

Why did I bother? After the shit-fest that was Apollyon, why did I continue with this series?

(Those are strictly rhetorical questions directed at myself. Truth be told, I don’t have the answer to them.)

The fifth and final book in the Covenant series cannot be considered a satisfying “conclusion”. It seemed more like a half-assed attempt, with only Alex and Aiden’s sex relationship given heed, and barely a fleeting glance given to anything else.

Why is this book so heavily reliant on roma

Five books filled with mythology and action; countless painful, almost heartbreaking moments; hundreds and hundreds of pages of deliciously hot romance… and now, we have finally reached the conclusion. The time has come to say goodbye to Alex, Aiden, Seth, Marcus and everyone else. Was this finale everything I’d hoped for? Well, no. But in the end, it made me feel peaceful and calm, happy with how we left the characters we’ve grown so attached to.

My Alex and Aiden:

I was sad, yet excited to start this final instalment. Once again, Jennifer L. Aremntrout managed to write exciting and thrilling story, full of Greek myths coming alive in our contemporary world. This may not be my favourite part of series, but I was still able to enjoy it a lot!

If you for whatever reason have not read this series yet, you should do so now. If not for action-packed, gut-wrenching storyline, than read it because of Aiden St. Deplhi. I am not sure if I have ever

This has been one of the most amazing journeys I've engaged in my life. This 5 covenant books have rocked my world. Once again JLA leaves me with my mouth hanging wide open!

For the last week this book did numerous things to me:
1. Happy

I love how quick Alex was to answer. I loved her stubbornness, I loved how hardheaded she was and how she didn't take shit from anyone. How all of her actions came from the heart and not from her head.

*sigh* I know I'm asking too much, but.. Can we have another book? Very last one? Please? No? Hmmm..

I am so not ready for this to end. I feel like there's more to tell especially after that ending. Don't get me wrong, but I'm very satisfied with it. I just want more Alex and Aiden. I don't care who the villain would be, I want more!!!

Maybe a novella? Jenn?

Sentinel is the fifth and final book of the Covenant series. Everything that has transpired in the past four books has been leading to this moment! Sentinel did not disappoint.

Alex has been battling her future as the Apollyon. She has battled with her love for Aiden and the knowledge that they are not supposed to be together. She has battled with the loss of her parents. It is in this book that she truly matures into a beautiful, strong, driven young woman. Alex trains in order to p

Okay. OKAY. Let's start with the beginning.
First, this is the first time that I rate a series with such different grades at each book. The quality of the writing and the story was so uneven.

From the first pages, this book has been awesome, action packed, badass. This is the book where I liked Alex and Aiden the most (wait I haven't say I loved them either). Alex was less whiny and Aiden more allowing and less stuck to her. I think that the fact Alex was a

This is the end, it is finished, done and over. I am thrilled to have finished up a series and saddened that a fun ride has come to an end. Apollo. Hades, Zeus, Ares, and all the other Gods will be missed. It was a long and bloody road, heartbreaking potholes and heartwarming pit stops all along the way. Wicked was not alway just evil and mean and good was not as pure and innocent as it seemed. It was a good ride that ended with a HEA to sooth the burns and bruises left in the wake of war.

That overwhelming feeling you get after finishing the series and you don't basically know what to say. I'm so speechless right now. I have mixed emotions while reading this. Sentinel is absolutely a great series-ender. It gave me goosebumps right at the first chapters up to the last-- well, especially the last remaining chapters.

In this book, everything was flawless. The plotline was good. There were climaxes in between. And the best thing of all was the scene by which Set
