Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.
Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.
The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.
Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.

“Apollyon” was certainly a mind-blowing fourth installment in the Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, and I absolutely loved it! Simply put, it was amazing; it truly was. I honestly didn’t think this series could get any better, but “Apollyon” definitely proved me wrong. And boy, am I ever glad to be proven wrong in this instance :)
Once again the storyline drew me right in and was so intricate and detailed. It was one crazy and amazing ride, and definitely one I won’t soon forget. I was literally on the edge of my seat the entire time, and it was almost impossible to guess what was going to happen next. There were many surprising and shocking revelations that were revealed that I believe will blow your mind, but hopefully in a good way. It left me craving for more (surprise, surprise), which every installment in the Covenant Series tends to do. Not that I’m complaining :)
All of the characters (the good ones) were amazing, and gods, I truly didn’t think it was possible to fall even more in love with them, but somehow I did. I loved them all to pieces, and they never ceased to amaze and entertain me. I loved that I was able to see more of Alex and Aiden’s relationship, and that they were able to actually be together without having to hide it from everyone else in their world. I honestly can’t get enough of them, as well as all of the other characters, and am so freaking excited to see what happens with everyone.
They all had to deal with so freaking much in this novel, and I am sincerely hoping and praying that nothing bad happens to them or comes their way in the final book. I know nothing in life, whether it’s real or fictional, usually tends to go the way we want it to, but I will be truly devastated if that is the case. I have faith, though, and that’s all that matters. I was a bit heartbroken by one or two instances in this novel regarding one or more of the characters, but I don’t want to spoil anything, so I won’t tell you what happened.
Jennifer L. Armentrout has an extraordinary ability to not only write incredibly addictive storylines and characters, but she also draws you right in from the beginning and keeps you thoroughly entertained until the very end. Seriously, I cannot sing enough praises for JLA and her books; they are both incredible, to say the least. I am itching to get started on the final installment, “Sentinel,” and cannot wait to see what it has in store for all of the characters and storyline I have come to love and crave with all of my heart!
