Reviews: Deity and Apollyon by Jennifer L. Armentrout

By the titles above you can tell I am doing a dual review today! It's been a while since I last read Deity and I just recently finished Apollyon, so why not have two reviews in one! I swear, JLA is one of the most amazeball authors out there. Every time I read one of her books it's impossible for me to put it down. I literally got both books and read them each in one night. I fell in love with both books! Let's just say you you are in for an emotional roller coaster with the third and fourth books of the Covenant series!

Deity (Covenant, #3)

"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...

Apollyon (Covenant, #4)
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.


Holy mackerel! If you want to be amazed, shocked, heart broken, and all sorts of heart attack inducing emotions Deity is the book to read. Like usual JLA doesn't disappoint. Alex is definitely stuck in a terrifying position, does she follow her path as the Apollyon, or does she somehow fight to be on her own. On top of it all, her mother is gone and she has news about her half-blood father. This book will keep you on your toes as you follow Alex's journey of preventing Seth from being the God Killer. I have always been team Aiden, but I started to gain a soft spot for Seth, and well all of that died in Deity. LITERALLY ALL OF IT. I usually don't let go of book boyfriends, but with this one he was full out booted off the list. Aiden is swoon-worthy as ever, and Alex is even more bad ass than before. Let's just say Deity is not going to leave you happy once it's over...well it might if you are all demented of course. Overall I can say Deity will be the one book you will want to throw across the room because of how emotional you will feel (depends on how attached and invested you are in the book). As usual JLA did a fantastic job and made sure I wanted to more after reading Deity. Rate: 4.5/5


Thank god. For all that is good in the world I am so glad for all that happened in Apollyon. Deity's ending made me worry for my mental state if Alex stayed the way she did, and well till the middle of Apollyon I was beyond mad at what was happening. Alex is still not herself? That is all I can really say without spoiling it for people who have not read Deity. Seth was irritating as usual, but even as psychopath he is probably one of the funniest characters throughout the series. Well excluding Alex, and Apollo. In Apollyon, Alex and Aiden are the only hopes for taming Seth and basically saving the world. The cliffhanger! OH MAI LORDY! IT KILLED ME! It ended at such a point where after I finished the book, I looked up then back at the book then flipped through the pages hoping that there was more. I was a mess after it ended! It was a confused state of horror because I could not grasp the fact that the book was done. But on the bright side I am hyped up more than ever for Sentinel! Rate: 5/5
