Sentinel Blog Tour: Deity Day - Review + Giveaway

Deity (Covenant #3)
"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...

First line:
Red silk clung to my hips, twisting into a tight bodice that accentuated my curves.

Though I love JLA and all of her books, one of my major hang-ups with the Covenant series is how similar it is the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. And before you all blow up at me, I'm not accusing anybody of anything. I'm just saying that the similarities bother me. JLA has an amazing writing style and has created a unique world that I am absolutely in love. And her characters are vivid and real.

In Deity, we start to see a different side of Seth. And not just one side, but several. We see his fun, care-free side which is the side we've seen from the beginning, and we're introduced to his evil side, but also the side of him that just wants to be loved and accepted. As much as I dislike Seth, that kinda broke my heart a little. sniff sniff

Aiden and Alex's relationship (How do you even give them a nickname? Is it Ailex? Alden? I don't like either of those... Oh! Let's call them St. Andros. I like that :D [<- sometimes I wonder about my though processes *facepalm*]) is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread. And I really like sliced bread.


The plot line is:
The feels I had after finishing Deity were excruciating. Y'all better be happy that the sequels are available right now (or on Saturday as is the case with Sentinel), because I just about killed somebody in my anxiousness to get the next book. Luckily, JLA also has other series I adore. Unluckily, I have to wait for sequels for those books, too. Why do I torture myself by reading books in a series that hasn't been finished yet? Sigh. I never learn.....

So, if you've read Daimen, Half-Blood, and Pure, you should definitely read Deity. The series just goes uphill from here with no stopping in sight :D I can't wait to read Sentinel!!!!!!
