Apollyon by Jennifer L Armentrout

Apollyon (Covenant, #4) Apollyon (Covenant #4) by Jennifer L Armentrout.  Published April 4, 2013 by Spencer Hill Press.  CDN $6.09 Kindle Edition

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. (Goodreads Excerpt)

Wow what an emotional and thoroughly enjoyable roller coaster ride of a story.  I loved every minute of this book.  The story keeps getting better and better.  This book truly is amazing.  There is nonstop action, romance, thrills and chills and everything in between.  There are some questions that we get answers to, and then there are more questions.  The worst is that I can’t wait to read the next book after the cliff hanger at the end.  I can’t wait until November.  Sniff L

There is no question that Alex is one bad ass female.  You can’t help but cheer for her and admire her spunk and tenacity; I mean seriously the girl takes on a God!  I won’t say what the outcome is but think about it people…he is a God!  She keeps fighting no matter what and never gives up.  I have to admire her.

And Aiden…sigh…what can I say, he truly is amazing.  In the beginning of the series I admit I had my doubts, but holy cow the man is everything, romantic, sweet, brave, stubborn (in a good way) and smoking hot!  Enough said.

Truly amazing book!  5 stars for sure.

Elixir by Jennifer L Armentrout

Elixir (Covenant, #3.5) Elixer(Covenant #3.5) by Jennifer L Armentrout.  Published Nov 27, 2012 by Spencer Hill Press.  CDN $.99 Kindle Edition.

Aiden St. Delphi will do anything to save Alex.
Even if it means doing the one thing he will never forgive himself for.
Even if it means making war against the gods. (Goodreads Excerpt)

This book takes up right after Deity and therefore you must read Deity first.  What I liked about this is that it is told from Aiden’s POV.  You really see the depth of his love for Alex in this novella.  Alex’s worst nightmare has come true and Aiden will do anything to help her.  I don’t want to ruin it for anyone but it is very emotional and heart wrenching…a true love can conquer all tale.

5 stars for me.

My Teaser:

This weeks teaser is from the same book as last week. Sorry it has been a slow reading week! Arggghhh!

Before I could answer, he kissed me, letting the barest edge of his tongue graze my upper lip. Maybe it was the lingering taste of tea and chocolate, but the feel of his mouth on mine sent a shock of adrenaline out to the tips of my toes and fingers, and all parts in between.

Yes, I thought, Now is very good.
