Let me begin my saying what a huge Jennifer L. Armentrout fan I am. I have read everything she has written, multiple times, each time enjoying the story more than the last. Deity is my favorite book so far in the Covenant Series. Granted, they are all beyond amazing, but I really, really loved Deity. I think the main reason for that is the fact that we get to know Aiden so much better in this book. Of course, I've always loved Aiden, but he has still remained somewhat of an enigma, keeping his feelings pretty much inside, only letting us glance at what is going on inside that handsome head. In Deity, we get to peek inside his brain and heart a little deeper, and it was wonderful. Granted, he still remains a mystery, and has a dark side that we have only seen in brief glimpses, but what we see in Deity will win your heart.
In Half-Blood, I was team Aiden, but in Pure, I changed sides and was team Seth, but I have to say that Deity settled it for me. I am and forever will be team Aiden. A lot of things happen in Deity that will surprise you and delight you at the same time. As far as Seth goes, I had some OMG what happened to Seth moments, because I do care about Seth and what happens to him. Alex, I absolutely adore Alex. I think of all the books I have ever read, Alex is my favorite kick-butt heroine. She is tough, she is snarky, she's loyal, she loves with everything she has in her, and she's real. We also get to know Deacon a lot better in this story, and that was really fun, since he is one of my favorite characters in the series.....and Leon, well let's just say you're in for quite a surprise when the truth about Leon is revealed in this book. We are introduced to some new characters also, one of which is Solos, and I am looking forward to hopefully seeing more of him in Apollyon. Lastly, but definitely not least, we get to see some really kick-ass scenes and interaction with the gods themselves in this book, which was really fun.
I loved where Jennifer Armentrout took Alex and Aiden's relationship in this book, and I am sure you will to. One thing that is a set in stone is the fact that Jennifer Armentrout knows how to write romance, really hot romance. Another thing I really enjoyed about Deity was that, if you pay attention, you begin to see the prophecies from the past books come into play, and some other things become clearer, as you connect the dots from hints that have been left in each book of the series. It makes going back and rereading them that much more fun, kind of like a scavenger hunt. Deity is absolutely outstanding, filled with intense passion, action-packed battle scenes, hot romance, humor, mystery, intrigue, and even murder, yes murder - whose murder, I can't say, but you'll be surprised how that plays out. Jennifer Armentrout is one of the most talented and gifted writers that I have ever run across. Her creative mind is reflected in the novels she writes, especially in the phenomenal characters she creates. She has earned the title, in my book, as well as in many of yours, as one of those authors that is here to stay and never disappoints. If she writes it, her fans are definitely going to read it, and then gush about it to everyone and anyone who will listen. If you haven't read The Covenant Series, it is a must read, so hurry and get it. You will not be disappointed. In fact, you will probably be thanking the gods that you found it.show more
