Book 3 in the Covenant Series
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 "training"--which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time--she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.
But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she's caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed... and destroyed.
Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate..

This series so far has been nothing but climatic. Especially Diety. There is literally no moment where I was bored. The story is constantly one upping itself, and keeps up it's wonderful originality within the genre ... while still keeping true to Jennifer L Armentrouts YA formula. I've read enough of her books to know that in every YA series, there is always a cafeteria scene, where someone is getting good dumped on them. Or thrown at them.
Alex is probably one of Jennifer's strongest female leads that I have come across in her books. At least top 3. She constantly shows her strength and bravery through her actions and words, yet has a vulnerable side to those she is closest to. She's intelligent, and begins to acknowledge that her choices have power. By going along with the normal way of things, she accepting the treatment of half-bloods, and the laws enslaving them. A
