"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...




Bring. On. Elixir and Apollyon.
Giddy Up!



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle: 


Agapi mou, zoi mou 

Gods! 

This. Was. Brilliant. 

Deity has everything. 

This was a Gods and mayhem TOUCHDOWN!!

Aiden St.Delphi is one of the most beautiful book boyfriends in YA. I absolutely adored him in Half-Blood and Gods he is even more beautiful and protective and loyal and smexi in Deity. 

“It’s not an insult,” he said softly. “It’s just who you are. You don’t stop to think of the danger, only what is right. But sometimes it’s not....right.” 



“I’m afraid of something.” 
“What?” I whispered. 
He drew in a deep , shuddering breath. “I’m afraid of never being allowed to feel what I do.” 

Patient Aiden is smokin’ hot in this book. 

The lad is fierce. 

He rocks the Sentinel outfit. 

He rocks the lurrrvvveee department. 

He just rocks.

Pure and simple.

Alex is growing up. I really saw growth in her character in this book. She still has that wonderful stubborn streak, it is because she cares and she still does some rash things because she is never thinking about herself. But now, she is thinking better. She will still be dangling outside a window, verbally abusing somebody but hell, she can be funny. 

My lips quirked. “I’ve really been trying , you know. Today was the first day I even did anything remotely stupid.” I left out the part where I’d been sequestered in my room with a nasty head cold. 


Lordy does she have things thrown at her by Jennifer. I actually gasped at one thing. I was like WT!!! What is going on??? Gahhhh! 

Quite a 3D experience was this book. 

Quite the ride. 

Jennifer let her hair down and waved her arms in the air as she took us on a rollercoaster of a ride with Alex, Seth and Aiden. Whahhhhh!! Throw in all the other stuff and high five to Jennifer. 

The Daimon’s are not the challenge or even the danger in this book. Oh, no we have all sorts of Hematoi World dangers lurking around the corner. 

Seth is brilliant in his role. He has you all getting cuddly like Alex. They have a bond. But holy mac and cheese ........................


“You were in my dream.” 
One amber-coloured eye opened. “Please tell me we were naked.” 
I rolled my eyes. “You’re such a perv.”



“Why do you always have to invade my personal space?” 
“Because I like to.” He patted my stomach. “And deep down you like it when I do.” 


Seth and Aiden have the Alex sandwich sown up quite nicely. Their  rivalry is at times amusing to watch, at times I want to shove Seth.

“She’s fine,” Seth answered. “Our training was rather...exhausting. You know, there’s a lot of moving around. Sweating, thrus--“ 



“Back off.”
“You really want to get involved in this?” Seth asked. “Right now?” 
“More than you would ever know.” 


“One man’s insanity is another man’s sanity.”

Leon is Mr Impeccable timing. I do love Leon J

“Emotions that are forced always end in tragedy.” 


Deacon, well now I am seeing some funny looks going about, I am now on another sniffer trail. This one is a long shot, but again, I was noticing some things in this book.

Wow . Look who’s smiling. The world is going to end.” Two silvery eyes peeked out behind a mop of curly blond hair, and Deacon St. Delphi smirked as he dropped into the seat beside me. 

“How’s it going, my favourite half-blood?” 


Things will come back to haunt Alex and now the stakes are even higher. 

Gods are they higher! 

Then the shiz really hit the fan. Holy double mac and cheese! 

This is definitely the best book to date in this series. It is quite a fierce read when all said and done. It played through my head like a freakin’ awesome movie. 

Bring out the green screen. 

I think this series would make a brilliant mini tv series. 

Gods and Furies, Daimons, Sentinels, Half-Bloods, Pures, villains.... speaking of villains, another awesome high five to Jennifer. 

Did not see that one coming. 

Now I have been watching a character in Half-Blood and the same character in Pure . This is from my review of Pure : 

Oh and that character I have been watching since Half- Blood, well that character is doing it again, so I am really interested to see what happens in Deity, book # 3. There is some greater meaning behind this character, I can feel it...or I am really off the sniffer trail, lol!! 


Now I am gonna say, I was so on to you from book # 1. I shouted, ‘I knew it’ ,at my library book, I think it got a fright. I will not say who, as that would be spoiling. I was on the sniffer trail like a blood hound. 

The Covenant series is my delicious addiction. Action, heartache, lust, love, betrayal...oh is there betrayal, surprises, twists, humor, intense scenes, awesome sub characters, sad moments and then you have Aiden and Seth and what they want from Alex. 

One is pure and the other is fated.

Take a bow JLA.
