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.

    The fourth book in The Covenant series, Apollyon, is filled with action, deaths, and the appearance of the Greek gods.

   Alex never wanted to lose herself to the connections she shares with the First. But Aiden St. Delphi isn’t ready to give up and lose her.

  The gods are getting angry. And that’s not good. They’ve already killed many and won’t hesitate to slaughter more in trying to stop Seth from draining Alex’s power and becoming the powerful God Killer. And becoming the God Killer could mean the end of the gods. Of course, the gods aren’t happy with that. If Alex doesn’t act fast enough, those she love will soon be destroyed.

   Now that I’m done glaring at the back of the book and thinking about how it should have ended, I shall now proceed to give you my thoughts on APOLLYON. The characters are getting stronger and are beginning to leave impressions – more than they left in the previous books, and believe me, they left some strong impressions. But the ending ticked me off, Jennifer L. Armentrout didn’t tie up the story as great as she did in the previous installments of the Covenant series.

    Aside from the ending, this series just keeps on getting better and better. We’re learning some interesting things about the enemy and the plot is gaining more action. And we get to see a lot more of Aiden. As you all  should know by now, Aiden is my main reason for reading this series, all because of how awesome he is. Sure, I liked the other characters too, but none of them can live up to Aiden’s glory. Though Apollo is kind of catching up. (Yes, Apollo is pretty cool).

    And now for the long and tedious wait for SENTINEL. *sigh* I doubt I’ll be able to find another good book, for some time to come.
