History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time.

Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday--to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she's a goner... and so is Aiden.

If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "tra

i take back EVERYTHING i wrote in my review of ‘pure’ because holy smokes. this is the best book in the series so far. wow. this is everything i was dying for the story to be.

i finally feel like the story has a purpose. there are high stakes and compelling conflicts that now make the characters choices matter. i also love where the romance is and where its going - its what ive wanted from the beginning and im praying that it wont change. and the gods finally make an appearance! hallelujah! i lo

ALL MY FEELS! Seriously, there were many things that I expected, but SO many OTHER things that made me scream like crazy (LIKE THAT ENDING, GOOD LORD). That said, I NEED THE NEXT BOOK LIKE NOW. AND I WILL START ELIXIR RIGHT AWAY. I NEED IT. I WANT IT. LET ME HUG YOU AIDEN, AND ALEX, MY BABY, I LOVE YOU, I want to kill all those bad guys who don't want to leave you alone. I NEE

There were things that sucked daimon butt,
there were things that kicked daimon butt.
Everything I was dreading would happen,
happened but the romance aside,
Deity was awesome.
There's the same humor,
action, && sexiness in Deity
that we're accustomed to in all Jenn's books
Always entertaining && hard to put down.
Even when things are happening
that just rip you apart.

Wow! I think The Covenant series just keeps getting better and better! Deity is my favorite so far!

Alex is back home and training but repercussions from the events at the council are not going away. With the attack by the Daemons, the Furies showing up, and all the death and destruction that followed, their world is in upheaval. Plus, Alex is worried it will come out that she was responsible for the death of a Pure, and that Aiden covered it up. It won’t matter that is was in self-defense. Plus,

Ok so before reading this I hoped Alex would wake-up and choose to be with Seth.

Now I'm probably insane but that hasn't changed what so ever.

Now before all you Aiden fans attack me, I know Seth is a bit screwed up right now and has become an enraged murderer, a little toy for Lucian to take over the world with.

BUT IS THAT REALLY HIM? No. He's got a fucked up past and only wants to be loved. Lucian's manipulating him and it makes me sick. I'm not giving up on him when he needs Alex and everyon

Deity is book three in the Covenant series by Jennifer Armentrout. I have loved every book so far in this series but something happened to me about half way through this third book. That feeling hit, that obsessed feeling when you can’t think of anything else but what is going on in the book. That feeling when you just want to close yourself off in a room and read non-stop. This was by far my favorite of the series so far. So much was revealed in this book. Our characters are all growing and

Wow!! This book was unbelievable!! So shocking!!!! That ending blew my mind!!!

I'm so glad this series has finally found its own path and can now step out of Vampire Academy's shadow. Deity is fast-paced and full of plot twists that will blow your mind. I can honestly say this is the best book in the series so far. I absolutely loved it!!!

I love Alex!!! She is a strong determined woman who will do
Originally I was going to go all screaming-fan-girl on ya'll, but I decided that I wanted the readers to experience this book the way I did, so while there is some spoilers, I kept this as spoil-free as much as possible.

Undeniably Epic!

Jennifer L. Armentrout third installment in the Covenant series is nothing short of brilliance. It surpassed all of my wildest expectations and then some. This series is an unstoppable force, bringing something fresh and powerful to the world of mythology as well
Maja (The Nocturnal Library)
From now on, the year 2012 shall be known as The Year of Cliffhangers and Jennifer L. Armentrout as the person responsible. Two in a row is more than I can take. Why not just hand me a rope to hang myself with instead? Where are the Furies when you need them?

This will be a moderately short review because there really isn't much to write about. With Pure and Deity (and Opal), Armentrout restored my faith in her and and turned me into an addict. I have now grudgingly joined hordes of fans who eage

This  is my favorite book so far, I just loved it top to bottom and I've read it with amazing speed, because its THAT addictive. I loved every second of it and consider it the best in action and twist of events. 

"Deity" begins in a low pace, but after that, the action builds up and makes you gasp every step of the way. Alex is months away from Awakening and this means she has to be ready for the danger that may come. Her connection with Seth is stronger than ever and her confusion is getting the

Huh, Team Seth? Really? Seriously? *thinks about it, considers it even* Hmmm, I honestly can't see it. No offence to anyone btw. But I am so NOT down with the whole fate thing. Me just doesn't like Seth that much, there is just something about him that stirrs me the wrong way. I swear if Alex is going to end up with Seth in the very end (which I hope isn't very soon, I want this series to go on and on and on and, you get my point, right?), I'm going to scream and hate this series like I did with ...more

OMG! “Deity” is a beautifully crafted work of art; stunning, heart gripping page turner.
I am a big fan of Alex. She is reckless, irrational and stubborn as them come but that’s also what makes her strong. No matter how much pressure she’s under, she never condoned injustice or played God, she always gave people the benefit of a doubt. She is selfless and hope for the best in people.
I can’t believe there are two more books to go in the series. I am waiting to see how this all goes down with Seth,

I screamed in frustration when it ended.

I need to steady my breathing before I write my review.......

“Aiden had slipped under my skin, wrapped himself around my heart and embedded himself into my bones.”


Seriously JLA???? Leave us hanging??? HOW COULD YOU!!


This installment for me by far the best so far. So much did happen and it leaves you tearing your hair out.

I am an Aiden lover all the way. Always been "team" Aiden.

WOW, JLA you never cease to amaze me with your awesomeness. I am so completely drained from this book. I am sick to my stomach and seriously am scared shitless for what's to come in Apollyon. But holy hell....that was freakin badass!

I am too tired and exhausted to write this review since my brain has been shut off. So I will stop here and leave you with...

TEAM AIDEX ALWAYS!!!!! I don't care, something will happen and all will be perfect! It can't end badly.

Alex continues to be a really interesting character! Though I still dislike her rash decisions. I like how she does everything possible to see the good in most people. It's a tad bit naive (in my personal opinion) but I can respect it.

How in HOLY HADES am I suppose to wait for the next installment!?! My ass hurts from that cliffhanger fall. Feels like it was kicked by a daimon. GAH!

Oh and SETH!!!! WTH! Team Aiden is wracking up the points. Come on!

I can't wait to review this book in October because I have a LOT to say. But for now... Best yet by JLA. Loved it!!

Okay, so I made a promise that if I were to continue with this series that I would nix the pissy commentary and use my review space only for the purpose of tracking the books as read.

Before you ask...
I decided to keep reading because I honestly do want to know what happens next (and the books are entertaining). That's all I'm going to say about my decision. My feelings are still very conflicted.

Holy shit... that ending 😅 um how is this book not on my 'the cliffhanger' tag because seriously that is one hell of a cliffhanger! 😂 I remember the 4th book book being my favourite in the series but this was freaking AMAZING I just loved every second and all the alex & aiden moments ugh 😍 my heart ❤❤❤
