Deity (Covenant, #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Deity (Covenant, #3)
Good Reads Summary
Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout

"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 Thoughts
My rating: 2.25 of 5 stars

well, now… color me surprised. I didn’t… actually … hate this one; neither did I have those nagging feelings I’d experienced as I read book’s on and two, those of “I’ve read l this before.” but that second thing was more of a conscious decision on my part. i knew as i continued with this that i was to encounter rose and dmitri and adrian read-alikes; i knew too that i would encounter more of the same thing that pushed and pulled them.

but it is pleased i am, to say that things went elsewhere here… to an extent, even if the characters still have the same character flaws as those mentioned. Think reckless. Think self sacrificing. Then think douche nozzle. There’s one of each of those in this one as there was in VA. And you know what? I’ve come to accept these facts… because once done, reading this became less a chore with me not picking up on certain “parallels” (and I use the term loosely) and going “ooh, you went there again, did you?”

because the twists in this one?
there were many.

plus those twist?
they were outrageous!

it all sucked me in and had me entertained. my worries over things becoming repetitive (reckless rose alex and protective dimka aiden,) and my issues over the language being juvenile (just see all the names ro.. alex called seth!) were not entirely baseless… because all that (and more) is here, but  I was still entertained. i’m surprised that I enjoyed this as much as I did, given my feelings for the first two books… but, that ending.. was  hmm… ergh… that ending was… not badly done at all.
