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.
In this book, we really get to see how strong Alex really is. And let me tell you, she is one of the strongest book characters ever. And I’m not just talking about being physically strong, I am talking about mental and emotional strength. It is amazing how strong she really is. Alex is such an empowered female character and it is awesome.
I’m not sure, but I think that the Lux series might’ve been mentioned in this book. It says,
“I dropped down on the cushion beside Lea and picked up the book she’d been reading. Turning the book over, my brows flew up as I got an eyeful of the hottie on the cover. “Wait. Is this book about aliens?”
She snatched it back from me. “Yes.”
“But they’re hot aliens.” She tapped on the guy’s face with one thin finger. “He can be my ET any day.”
Doesn’t that sound like Daemon from the Lux??
Anyways, I love the difference between the beginning and end of this book. The evolution in Alex’s character throughout Apollyon is so intense. It’s really hard to explain without spoiling the events of the previous books, so you will just have to read it for yourself to understand what I mean.
Trust me when I say this, you will not be disappointed with this series. It was so incredible, it brought me out of a reading slump. If you haven’t read the Covenant series, you are seriously missing out.
