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…

   Betrayals, gods, and lunatics (yes, lunatics), DEITY is by far, the best installment in the Covenant series.

   Alexandria’s eighteenth birthday isn’t that long away. And she’s getting closer to becoming the second Apollyon. Which will also give Seth enough power to become the God Killer, something feared by all the Hematoi. And that’s not all, with a secret order out to destroy her, Alex finds out that nothing is as it seems. There’s Lucian, who seems way too nice. Seth, who’s definitely keeping something from her. And Aiden, the perfect pure-blood who has some dark secrets of his own.

   Is it just me or do these books just keep on getting better and better? DEITY was filled with surprises, big surprises, humongous surprises. And awesomeness on every page. Not only do we get to see more of Aiden, we get to find out some pretty interesting things about Leon – although that name no longer fits him.

   I’d could probably just keep repeating myself and that would get pretty annoying. But guys, DEITY is just so AWESOME. I found myself really liking, borderline loving, the characters that I kind of ignored before. DEITY has more action then the others, and we also get to see some of the Greek gods towards the end.

   Yipee for me, I don’t have to wait that long for the fourth book. I mean, how did you guys even wait for the others? I don’t even think I can wait the couple of days for APOLLYON.

    I totally agree, Asma! I think Deity was the best out of ALL of the Covenant books, and Apollyon is so worth it! I think there's a novella called Elixir that's on Spencer Hill's website for free that you can read in Aiden's POV :) It's really great, trust me!

    I'm glad you loved this one so much! It's great to see that your opinion of the characters changed from Meh to AHH LOVE!
