Review ~ 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 don’t know how to contain myself. I’m wrong about Deity because Apollyon is the best in the series. It’s heart-wrenching, throw-your-book-against-the-wall frustrating (for the first part of the book), and just plain amazing throughout. Jennifer Armentrout is one epic author.

Apollyon is a non-stop action that grew a book on its side. The plot is keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat intense. This book gave me a sleepless night, but I’m not complaining. If I can live inside this book, I totally will.

I like Alex’s character development. She has really matured in this book but she still feels like her usual snarky self. For the first part of the book where her connection to Seth is like a living, breathing thing, I want to hurl my device into the wall in frustration. But then that just shows Armentrout’s brilliance and how strong the connection between the Apollyons is.

This book packs a drum of anticipation. I don’t know how the author keeps at it but it just keeps getting better and better page after page. I don’t know what else to say other than I truly, madly, deeply loved this book. Words are just not enough to express what I’m feeling. It is the best pre-conclusion of all time.

Apollyon has everything: romance, thrill, action, and mystery. It is one of the best books that has ever been written.
