Deity by Jennifer Armentrout Review & Giveaway

"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...

My Summary

We find our heroine Alex at a crossroads in her life.  The last installment of the series she had killed a pure and Aiden had used compulsion to cover the deed.  Even though she is back on Deity Island she is not safe.  Someone is plotting to get rid of her before she becomes and Apollyon.

Now that she had chosen Seth, everything has become a routine.  Training is the priority and Alex has shut off herself from everyone else in order to survive the death of her best friend. 

Aiden is still part of her life but he remains a Sentinel and somehow due to everything that has happened he is assigned to be her guard.  As the famous saying “while the cat is out the mice will play” or something like that.  Seth is gone to New York to investigate why the elixir is not working on the half bloods… Aiden and Alex become close and things happen.  I’m just going to leave it at that.

My Thoughts

This book was the best of the series by far.  Once I began my journey I could not put it down.  I needed to know what would happen to Alex.  I am Team Aiden the whole way but somehow Seth had grown a little space in my heart. 

I won’t spoil this story for you guys but oh so many surprises and turns I didn’t see coming and that is why I love Jennifer Armentrout writing style.   She keeps you guessing and unexpected bombs are thrown at you.

Let me tell you guys the only advice I will give you is to be ready for the ending.  It is such a cliffhanger that I was pacing back and forth in my room trying to swallow that I had to wait another year to read what will happen next.

This book was friggintastic and I give it five hearts.
