Review: Deity (Covenant, #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

"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...
I was extremely stressed out throughout this entire book!  Armentrout left us with one heck of a cliffhanger last time around and this installment picked up right where that one left off...major anxiety for sure.  Alex is now back and training like always but she's got the HUGE cloud hanging over her head with what happened in New York and is constantly fearful that she'll be found out, along with everyone else involved.
With all this on her shoulders, she's still got Prime Minister Telly on her case, and his little surprise special visit for Alex had me in knots and wanting to cry for her...just awful, that is one character I couldn't stand...and still can't!  Her awakening is quickly approaching and speeding up a lot faster than she'd like and as if the girl doesn't have enough on her plate, throw in the awfulness that revolves around all things Aiden and Seth that she's always dealing with and it's enough to drive readers crazy with anxiety, stress and a roller coaster of other emotions when they find themselves on empathy overload!
I honestly don't know how Armentrout keeps delivering these new and amazing story lines with each installment but I'm sure not complaining and hoping that it's not going to end any time soon, because I'm not sure I'll ever get enough of these characters, this world and all the action and romance that's packed in between!
Each time I think I couldn't fall in love with one of her characters more, she proves me wrong...but on the flip side, just when I don't think I can take a certain character's nastiness and deceit, they one up themselves again and I'm lost in how much I want to throw the book across the room after shaking said characters.
There's nothing not to love in this third installment and with all the action, romance and fast paced writing, I think it's one that all readers will find themselves enjoying.
