It was good -- Samantha Young's YA Paranormal always is -- but it wasn't as epic as the last couple books. It has a lot more character development and long breaks and things like that. I enjoyed it, though, and read through it really fast. I guess I was just expecting a more epic conclusion to the series. But she ties up a lot of loose ends, and we have a lot of good scenes....more
Oh, no, why did I finish this book? Now I have to wait forever for the next one :(

This was so good. I love this series. As the characters get deeper into this crazy situation, you grow to love them more and more. Aiden is always amazing. Alex is awesome and strong and brave and funny. I kind of miss Seth, as ambivalent as that little shit is. I hope it turns out okay for him.
This story is so unpredictable. I love the developments along the way, the powers revealed, the allegiances. I love the developing romance. They are so friggin cute!
I knew which god was supporting Lucian and Seth about halfway through. (view spoiler)[As soon as Persephone showed Alex Ares' war room, I was like, 'Oh, yeah, of course it's Ares. What a dick.' Hephaestus, seriously, Alex? You were IN HIS SPOILS ROOM, for Pete's sake, and yet you suspected Haphaestus?! But I did not see the twist with Romvi coming. Very nice. (hide spoiler)]
One funny thing: I read the first two Vampire Diaries books between this and Deity and I was seriously confusing characters up. I know the series go in completely different directions, but holy moly are there a lot of similarities in the first book!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more
Oh. my. god. I'll admit I took a little bit of a break between 90% of this book and the end. I don't know why, maybe because chapter sixty-two devastaOh. my. god. I'll admit I took a little bit of a break between 90% of this book and the end. I don't know why, maybe because chapter sixty-two devastated me. Maybe because I didn't want it to end. So as I write my review (which will be short because I seem to be incapable of writing long reviews anymore :P) I do so not remembering all of the book. But I remember a lot of it. Juliet's (Juliette's?) new life underground. Her and Adam's developing relationship and new revelations that threaten to tear them apart. Kenji and Castle and the twins and new powers. Lots of kissing. Warner. Warner, Warner, Warner. (Holy crap. Destroy Me was so good. omgggg)
I just love how this series is turning out. I don't want it to be a trilogy. I want it to keep going. I love Juliet's voice and for once I actually like this love triangle Please Warner, please please please. Okay. Okay. After deliberating for like an hour, I've decided that Adam is pretty awesome and he's a good guy and if I was in this situation, I wouldn't touch Warner with a fifty-foot-pole. But he's interesting and he has depth and their relationship is very multi-faceted. But really, I'll probably be happy if she chooses Adam or Warner. It'll just suck for the other guy because they're both so in love with her.
and the ending was like....holy crap. Kind of a cliffhanger in some respects, but definitely not in others. I'm just in love. Seriously. In loooove.
I just looked up the release date for the third book and wow I just forgot it was 2013 and I was starting to freak out that I had to wait two years. 2014. I can do that. Somehow....more
