Deity (Covenant #3) by Jennifer Armentrout

Deity (Covenant, #3) Deity (Covenant #3) by Jennifer Armentrout.  Published November 6th 2012 by Spencer Hill Press.  CDN $6.00 Kindle Edition

“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…(Goodreads Excerpt)

What can I say but holy smoke!  As soon as I finished reading this, I immediately downloaded the next book.  It was fantastic, nonstop, emotional, exciting, riveting and compelling.  I loved every minute of it.  It is rare that I read a book that I can’t put down, but this one did that.

I admit I was kind of torn between Seth and Aiden.  Seth is the typical bad boy with the sneaky soft heart that pulls you in but you know is going to break your heart.  Aiden is the kind of guy that every girl dreams of…sigh…I will leave it at that.

I have never been a fan of Greek mythology but Holy Cow I am a changed person.  I love everything about this book, the Gods the Demigods, the Pures and the Half Bloods and of course you throw in an Apollyon (or two!) and you have one wicked bad ass story.  I love how Jennifer makes all the characters real.  No one is all good or all bad but shades of grey.  The characterization is amazing in this story, not just for the main characters, but for all of the characters.

I am not going to say any more because I don’t want to spoil anything but OMG I couldn’t put this down!

5 stars for me!  I would give more but 5 is all I am allowed:(

Promise by

Promise (Soul Savers, #1) Promise (Soul Savers #1) by Kristie Cook.  Published July 30th 2010 by Ang’dora Productions, LLC.  The Kindle edition is currently free on Amazon.

New Adult Paranormal Romance ** Mature Content ** Recommended for ages 16+ due to sexual situations and language

First installment of award-winning author Kristie Cook’s bestselling Soul Savers Series
Alexis Ames has a life full of promise…but not all promises can be kept.

When Alexis Ames is attacked by creatures that can’t be real, she decides it’s time she learns who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their family’s secrets closely. After meeting the inhumanly attractive, multi-talented Tristan Knight, however, Alexis retreats behind her façade of normalcy…until she discovers he’s not exactly normal either. Then their secrets begin to unravel.

Their union brings hope and promise to her family’s secret society, the Angels’ army, and to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy – Satan’s minions and Tristan’s creators. After all, Alexis and Tristan are a match made in Heaven and in Hell. (Goodreads Excerpt)

I must say this is one heck of a story!  It pulled me in right from the start.  I love the connection between the characters; it is very real and…intense.  I love the originality of the storyline.  Alex is different.  She doesn’t know what she is but she knows that she is different.  We are given snippets of information until finally it is revealed what she is.  I loved the buildup and excitement it brought.   I won’t give it away though!

This book reads like a young adult book but holy the heat is intense.  The book is classified as New Adult for this reason.  I loved it.

5 stars for me.

My Teaser:

Taking in the destruction the gods were wreaking, I knew only one thing-and it hurt in a way that shouldn’t have, in a way I couldn’t really explain.  Seth had to die, but I had no idea how to do it…or if I really could, when it came down to it.
