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

Title: Deity (Covenant #3)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Published: November 6th 2012
My rating: 5 stars
"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...

In this third installment of the Covenant series, Armentrout delivered us a blast of twists, revelations, surprises and an explosion of love and intimate emotions that had me on the edge of my sit but also giddy and in love on the other side. Reading Deity was one exhilarating ride and an utterly brilliant experience. This is so far my favorite among the series and am absolutely satisfied with where the story is going (despite that cliffhanger of an ending).

I was glad to see Alex's character developed vastly in this book. Her being reckless and taking actions without thinking was one of her distinctive character trait that although annoyed me most times, is probably also the most appealing thing about her. In this book though Alex seems to have learned to think first and tried to consider things before deciding and taking any actions. She matured in a lot of ways through all the things that had happened and she experienced from the previous books and in this one. But one thing I'm most happy about was when she finally become completely honest with her feelings and chose who she really loved.

Aiden, oh boy, I don't even know where to start with this guy! He had me melting in a puddle of goo almost every freaking time. The dedication, the patience, the loyalty and the undying love of this guy to Alex are just very impressive and absolutely amazing. He isn't flawless but with all those thing he'd done for Alex he could be all be nothing but perfect. And the moments with the two? Wonderful. Just wonderful. The love and care were practically oozing out of the pages.

As for the plot, it was just incredible! So many things happened and almost all of them left me in total surprise. Some had me confused and frustrated but others just made me thrilled and excited. Secrets and intentions were revealed and although some complicate things it also made the story even more interesting and fantastic.

Overall, I am absolutely satisfied and happy with this book. I loved how things went although the ending left me a bit in disarray. Still, the things that happened and took place in this book were great and served a lot for the credibility of the story and to developed and enhance the world Armentrout created remarkably. The characters are one hell of an awesome set, from the main characters, supporting and even the villains! If you haven't started this series yet I recommend you start it now! You're missing a lot.


  1. Yay! *dances* I'm soooo pleased you enjoyed this one too, Eunice! I reckon it might just be my favourite of the series as well (though ask me tomorrow and I'll probably say something different!). The ending was awful but it did help to read Aiden's novella straight afterwards. Now I'm feeling much better about waiting. Awesome, awesome review!

  2. YEAH EUNICE!!!!! I loved this one so much too:) Alex is definitely reckless and acts without thinking, but I saw some growth from her in this one as well and I loved that. I still like that she's impulsive because that's just who she is, but she's definitely learning. I need Apollyon NOW. That ending? *dies*

  3. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the book, Eunice. I really did enjoy it too. However, I wanted some more action and plot, but still there was so much of Aiden, so it was awesome! I also loved that Alex grew in this book. Great review, Eunice! :)

  4. Okay I have seen so many 5 stars for this series already, me being the last person as always I haven't read this series yet, but I have decided I will definitely be reading them over Christmas! I promise to read over you fabulous review then! :)

  5. I'm glad to hear that Alex goes through some major changes and character development in this one, she seriously annoyed me at times. I have this right here and am about to start it. I'm really looking forward to Aiden... I mean book.
    Lovely review, Eunice!

  6. Okay, so clearly there is something wrong with me because I haven't yet picked up this series (still!) even though I've been encouraging myself to do so after all the glowing reviews I've seen for it. I will definitely, considering your review is so persuasive, Eunice. Brilliant review, hon! I'm so pleased that you continue to enjoy the author's novels. :)

  7. This is my favorite one of the series so far, Eunice. Yay, you love Aiden too! That cliffhanger was something else, right? You need to read Elixir now. Excellent review Eunice. :)
