Hey there, Aiden...
I never doubted Aiden's awesomeness but this novella takes him to a whole new level.
He's not perfect, he's not flawless, but he's wonderful and I love him so much!!!!!!!! And going on writing from Aiden's POV after Deity's ending? Just perfect, Jennifer, just PERFECT. Now I can breath when after the last book I thought I was going to die waiting for Apollyon, so THANK YOU because even if my heart hurts just by thinking about it, I'll try to survive until April.

And (view spoiler)

My review can also be found on my blog Collections.

Oh Aiden Aiden Aiden... I didn't need this novella to convince me that Aiden is amazing and badass and the one for Alex. Because I already knew all this the moment he stepped back into Alex's life in Half-Blood, the first novel in the series. But I did desperately need this novella for my much needed Aiden fix AND to calm my nerves after reading the epicness that was Deity, which by the way ended on a huge cliffhanger!

When I heard Elixir would be Aiden's novella

When I heard it was in his POV!

So holy crap! If I wasn't already in love with this series after reading Deity, this novella just took the cake then. Oh gods, my head is so full of emotions. Aiden. Oh Aiden you are truly the most remarkable character I've ever come to know. I really loved this little bit from our beloved Pure's POV. He really is pure....okay well in his own words...."Saint Delphi, my ass." Yes, you really are a saint in my eyes. Gods, the shit he had

Elixir is #3.5 in the Covenant series by Jennifer Armentrout. This novella is completely in Aiden’s point of view. But unlike novellas in other series, this one is completely part of the series, taking up immediately where Deity left off.

Alex has awakened, and immediately connected with Seth. Her biggest fear came true, she lost herself. Aiden will do anything to save her and is forced to make a decision he never thought he would face in order to.

MY GOD! This is me while reading the book:

I know. I look a little silly.

DO NOT read Elixir if you haven't read Deity! It will be a huuuuge spoiler!

Now that we've cleared that, let us get back to the book. One word to describe it: breathtaking. You can imagine a list of similar adjectives that will surely do justice to the book.

In Deity, we get a few glimpses from Aiden's POV, which as expected, leaves us all swooning and drooling, not a very ladylike behaviour as one might say, but WHO THE H

If you've read any of my reviews for previous installments of this series, you'll know where I stand and why I feel torn about even reading the series. In my last review, I opted out of saying much in favor of just shelving the book as read, but man, it's hard when I can't not compare. However, my curiosity to know how everything turns out won't allow me to quit reading.

Moving on. I'm a sucker for a male PoV, and this novella is in Aiden's PoV. It was sweet to see how he internalized his feelin

~happy sigh~ This was exactly what I needed! I haven't been reading much lately, but if anyone could get me excited about books again, it's JLA baby!

Aiden is absolutely freaken amazing and such a beautiful beautiful man inside and out. You could feel his desperation and pain right down to your very core. It broke my heart for what Aiden had to do and it broke my heart to see Alex the way she was.

This is the ultimate love story about faith, love and hope and I'm right there with Aiden when it co
*** If you have NOT read Deity, DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW.***

Seriously, it’ll spoil Deity for you. So unless you’re the kind of person who reads the last page first , you really don’t want to be here.

Still here? Ok, you’ve been sufficiently warned. Starting in 3… 2… 1…

After that jaw-dropper of a cliffhanger in Deity, I’ve been dying to find out what happens next. I’m pretty sure I could’ve survived (though just barely) not knowing what happens to Alex & Co. until Apollyon. I could’ve done it w

**Please note there are spoilers for Deity in this review

Oh. My. Gods! There are no words to describe just how excited I am to have read this novella. It is no surprise to anyone just how much of an enormous fan of Jennifer L Armentrout I am. She is without a doubt my favourite author of all time and there is nothing she can write that I will not completely obsess over. Add to that the fact that Covenant is my favourite series of all time and I am completely and utterly head-over-heels in love w
When I first found out that there would be Aiden's point of view novella, I thought it would be some kind of "thank you" or gift from author to her readers who love Aiden and Covenant series. But Elixir was so much more. Aiden's point of view was definitely needed for the sake of storyline development and to be in his head was incredible. He is exactly a person Alex always thought he was, if not better. I have always been Team Aiden girl all the way but now my love for him is even stronger.

Aaaaahhh, is there anything better than a novella to give us more insight into a favourite series? Oh yes! A novella from the hero’s POV. SQUEEEEEE!! Yes, that’s right, it’s Aiden time, baby!!!

This was a great little read that relieved me of my tension after the cliffhanger that ended Deity. I now kn

Oh my goodness! I can't wait to see what happens in Apollyon now!

I'd fight.

Alex. Seth. A whole slew of gods if necessary. No one was going to take Alex. No one was going to give up on her or hurt her--not even Alex.

Oh Aiden!!

Big thanks to Spencer Hill Press for letting us read this early!
When I heard there was a novella from Aiden's POV, I was so excited! But I wasn't expecting it to really move the storyline along, I thought it was going to be his POV of Deity or some other scenes from one of the other books. Once I started reading and realized that it picked up right where Deity left off I was beyond excited!!!

This novella was so heart wrenching - I felt so terrible for Aiden. He had to deal with the Alex, his heart and soul, being taken over by her connection to Seth. It was

This was Aiden's little novella. It may of been short but my golly it had loads squashed in and in a good way! This guy cant do no wrong in my eyes. I just love reading how much he loves Alex how determined he is to always fight for her and put so much of his life on stake. He is the most selfless hero I have ever read!

I honestly cant say anything really about this novella with out giving too much away but what I wil

"Love is the only thing more powerful than Fate."

Oh my gods! I can only sigh. This novella is so perfect! It has all the elements that totally have me gasp. I've always loved men's POV and seriously, getting to know more about Aiden's thoughts is just totally all-consuming, and heart-shattering!

Elixir covers wickedly emotional scenes and it focuses on Aiden's struggles to keep Alex safe as much as possible. This may be a heart-breaking part of the series but it's also sweet. I've always thou

“Saint Delphi my ass.”

Well, bookworms everywhere who haven't read The Covenant series by JLA yet... Have you ever read something hauntingly good? A series that plays with your feelings on a regular basis? A story with such intense twists and huge sacrifices that leaves you breathless? That makes your heart flutter, your eyes water and your whole body just go Rambo at some particular scenes? Let me just say -- you just think you did. Because you don't experience true sadness and kick-ass emoti

-Aiden's POV, set shortly after Deity.

-At the end of Deity, Alex turned 18, became the Apollyon, bonded fully with Seth, went evil and was ready to take down anyone who stood in her way. I was looking forward to seeing Alex fighting her friends and everyone reacting to her going evil. Unfortunately the showdown between evil Alex and her friends didn't even happen, there's only a brief mention of a fight and instead Alex is safely locked up and Aiden and the co are wondering what to do ne

I am not a fan of novellas, I HARDLY read them and if I do, I am usually left disappointed. Also, I don’t really write formal reviews on novellas. I had no intentions of reading Elixir, if I did, it would have been when I finished the series. HOWEVER, several people told me I needed to read Elixir and that it was the bridge between Deity and Apollyon. So, like a good little girl, I did AND…

His personality just grabbed my attention and
he's definitely kept it. In Halfblood, I wad just happy to read about him. Aiden didn't do it for me, I felt nothing for him and he honestly bored the crap out of me. In Pure, I saw a side of Seth that I just fell for. I started hoping then that Alex would give him a chance, that he'

They were about to get it."

“I feel it in here," she said, placing her hand against her chest and then against her stomach, "and here. It’s like there’s not enough air or room inside me. That I may… burst out of my skin or drown in it, and that wouldn’t be a bad thing. I don’t know why I feel this way, but I always have… and will."
