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…
To me, Alex is one of those characters that you just want to hide and shield from the world because they have already been through so much. Unfortunately, that isn’t how it works.
I love how the books in the Covenant series build off of one another. The plot in this series progresses in such a way that you are never bored. The plot is not repetitive. In fact, it is quite the opposite. This series will grab you in and won’t let go… even after you finish it (Trust me, I know).
Can we just talk about Aiden? He is willing to sacrifice everything for Alex. If that doesn’t make you love Aiden then I don’t know what will. He is so admirable and amazing but he has this aspect to him that makes him relatable and respectable.
