I was all types of excited to see that Apollyon was released early; I could hardly contain my excitement!
Apollyon is the fourth book in the Covenant Series by my fav JLA (Jennifer L. Armentrout) and it picks up right where Elixir (a novella in between Deity and Apollyon) left off. If you have not read Elixir, than you may want to before starting Apollyon, just to get the back story.
The Covenant series is basically a Greek mythology series with a lot of action and the right amount of smart-assnes. If there was ever a book series that should be made into a movie it should be these. Alex is a half-blood (the offspring of half mortal/ half pure blood) and she lives in a world where half-bloods are given only two choices; fight or be a slave. In this world pure bloods (offspring of both pure-blood parents) kinda rule and have their freedom to do whatever they please. Her one mission in life is become a Sentinel (like a part of an army) that fights and protects the Pure’s. Because that other choice? Pssh, Alex is no one’s servant.
Alex has connected with the First (Seth) and has lost herself to him and everything he wants become what she wants, she is being held in a reinforced cage so that she can’t break out and go to him, because one touch from him and he will become the ultimate god-killer.
Aiden her one true love is not willing to give up on her so easily though and fights like hell to make her come back to him, when she does they have to find a way to make their happily ever after come true, right after they save the world from a war between the Gods (Zeus, Poseidon ect.) and the First who will stop at nothing to gain ultimate control and rule Olympus.(homeboy crazy)
Alex is presented with a choice, she now she has to kill the First but at what price to her? And will she make the right choice?
We see more about Seth and what kinda makes him tick and that maybe his feelings for Alex were not all fake and why Alex is having such a hard time decided if she can kill him or not. I loved this book, because I am a fan of Love and also team Aiden( go Aiden), they got to spend so much time together and be in the love bubble before the pooh hits the fan (in Sentinel). I missed Alex and all her snark
“They couldn’t kill me…..I was the Apollyon… My eyes locked with the Fury’s and I smiled. She hesitated and I snapped to my feet. “Bitch, please.”
And can’t wait until the fifth and final installment Sentinel comes out, they just get better and better with each one.
4 out of 5 stars.
