It's a beautiful day for a war.
As the mortal world slowly slips into chaos of the godly kind, Alexandria Andros must overcome a stunning defeat that has left her shaken and in doubt of their ability to end this war once and for all.
And with all the obstacles between Alex and her happily-ever-after with the swoonworthy Aiden St. Delphi, they must now trust a deadly foe as they travel deep into the Underworld to release one of the most dangerous gods of all time.
In the stunning, action-packed climax to the bestselling Covenant series, Alex must face a terrible choice: the destruction of everything and everyone she holds dear… or the end of herself.
I got this series thanks to my fiance as an early birthday present on July 2014. I read Daimon and Half-Blood the same day. I don’t know why I kept pushing back the other books. This year, I decided to start it off with the Covenant series and I finally but sadly, finished it. I really didn’t want this series to end. At times, I did wanted it to end but then…it just…ugh, no words, guys.
I’m going to start off with Alex. I admire Alex! She is so strong and brave and STRONG! I don’t think I would have survived everything she went through. Every step back, she would push forward, would push herself to do better until she did it. I must say I got annoyed with her a few times during the series but Alex is definitely one of my favorite heroines. She is bad-ass and she killed it!
Let’s continue with Aiden. This series is the first series I read that I am not a fan of the MC’s boyfriend or special friend. I was rooting for Seth! Let me give you my reasons. While Aiden was kind of “forbidden”, I couldn’t totally grasp the idea of it and I love forbidden love, so this is saying a lot. He would make Alex suffer more than make her happy, in my opinion, which blew my chances with him. I know it’s forbidden but if he loves her as he says he does, why didn’t he try until later on? Why wait when the love of your life is right there and with everything going on could die some day? This is why I wasn’t a fan of Aiden, among other things that I can’t remember right now.
Let’s go with Seth. My lovely, hot, annoying, jerk, a**hole, arrogant, gorgeous, handsome, cocky Seth. Seth is f*cking perfection! I LOVE HIM! I know a lot of you hated him but I couldn’t! I really love him a lot! There was a time (maybe 5 minutes) in Deity that I disliked him but my love for him stayed strong and faithful. His arrogance fit so perfectly with his cockiness and his beauty, it was impossible to not love him. He was the one that led me to continue on with the series and I really wanted more of him and I am SO FREAKING GLAD that JLA decided to write The Return. I get to have more sexy time with Seth. While he was all of the adjectives I mentioned above, he was also caring and he soon learned to be himself and fight back because of Alex.
Another thing many of you didn’t like is that he “cheated” on Alex…. I didn’t feel that from the book. They weren’t dating (I wish they were) so he was free to do whatever he felt like. Alex and Seth only had their connection of Apollyons and yes, they had feelings because of the connection but they never really pursued their feelings.
SENTINEL was filled with betrayal, love, angst, thrill, action, and the most of them all, sadness. Sentinel had my heart racing most of the time (99.99%) and I would feel chest pains at times because of its intensity. This book brought so many emotions that I can’t even continue to describe because there were so many!!! Each character of this series has taken a piece of my heart with them. They all mean so much to me because each one of them played a huge part in the series and I can’t believe I’m parting from them :'(
If you still haven’t read this series, I highly suggest it! Click on the pictures below to go to their Goodreads page 🙂
