Apollyon (Covenant #4) by Jennifer L Armentrout

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.

I have waited FOREVER for this book to come!!!! The ending of Deity and then reading Aiden's POV in Elixir were almost too much in this book world of cliffhangers. Why did Jennifer choose to torture us so? I'll tell you why. She tortured us because she wanted to give more awesomeness in the form of Apollyon.

I was very skeptical of this series in the first two books. They were almost identical to the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. But Jennifer has done an amazing job of developing this into a unique story centering around Alex, our heroine. Alex is strong, tough and can take care of herself. She's also the second Apollyon, destined to fall under the spell of the First, Seth. And she does. She has lost her personality. His desires are hers. His anger is hers. His love is hers. His ambition is hers.

Aiden knows that the Alex he loves is still in there, that if he just remind her of how much she loves him, she'll return to herself. So everyday, he sits with her, sometimes talking, other times just watching while she threatens to kill him and his brother. But he loves her, so he keeps  coming down to talk to her. Until one day she does escape and almost kills him.

Now, now, I'm sure you're wondering why Alex is our heroine and not our villain. If you are, you obviously haven't read the first 3 books and 2 novellas. Go back read them I say. READ THEM!!

Apollyon doesn't have as huge of a cliffhanger as Deity but it will definitely leave you wanting more. But there is good news, Sentinel is set to release a month early on November 2, 2013 rather than in December. :D
