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…

Deity is the third installment in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Covenant series, and with every book I fall more and more in love with Armentrout’s writing.
I don’t mean to knock it, but I have to say: I totally judged this series by its cover. I really didn’t want to read it, and likely wouldn’t have until a trusted friend literally SHOVED it into my hands and said, “I think you should read this.”
But, after reading this series, Obsidian and an adult novel by Jennifer L. Armentrout, I have to say she’s quickly becoming one of my favorite writers.
Why? Let me get down to business and be honest here: The girl knows how to do romance.
I said to a friend recently: “You know why I love Armentrout’s books? Because it’s not just ‘…and then we kissed.’ No, it’s five pages of buildup and sexual tension and details like where are his hands are, and…” That, my friends, is what I live for. And I’m totally embarrassed and stopping now.
Anyway, do give this series or her other books a try. Are they flawless? No. But they certainly are delicious.
Fans of the Covenant series who want more dish out of me? You’re not getting any! You should know by now that this series keeps you hanging, and I don’t intend to spoil you in the slightest! Just know that this one is good, sooooo good!
