"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...
Review: As Alex would say... "OH MY GODS!" One word. AIDEN!!!! *Swoon* This is seriously the best book in the series so far! Man, I don't know where to start. Soooooo much happened in this book! Its going to be so hard to write this without saying anything too spoilery to those who haven't read it yet. I think I shall start with the hiding of what happened in New York. Man, thats a huge secret for ALex, Seth and Aiden to be keeping. And for a while they thought they got away with it, until Telly from the New York Covenant shows up (remember, he's the bad one who was trying to get Alex placed in servitude in Pure). He somehow had this suspicion about what Alex did and how Aiden covered it up. But they knew exactly how he knew about it. Now did they deny it when question. Well DUH! But man, if you think Telly is evil... You haven't seen ANYTHING yet until you read the second half of Deity. It will BLOW YOUR MINDS! Someone who we thought was becoming just a bit trustworthy and actually caring... Nope! Lying to everyones face. This person had their own agenda with how to go about getting changes made and the people he's managed to brainwash into joining his side... Its just... Its DESPICABLE what this person did. And I am definitely looking forward to seeing him taken down in the next books!!!!
Gods. Literally. The Gods! Some Gods start appearing in this book. I'm not going to say which ones, and what person actually is one even though he seemed like a normal person before it was revealed. But man!!!! You know somethings going down when the Gods get involved!!!! And OH MY GODS!!! What one of the gods did at the end of Deity when all hell broke loose... Man... DO NOT MAKE THE GODS ANGRY!!!!! BAD IDEA!!!!
So this is where I talk about the boys. I am FIRMLY on TEAM AIDEN after Deity. We all know I was wavering a bit in Pure but after Deity there's no doubt whatsoever that I am on Team Aiden now. This boy will seriously do anything for Alex and I love him for that. And man, Aiden is just so swoon worth in this book. You can't help but love him (I mean unless, your a firm believer in Seth). Aiden, man, he just did whatever he could to protect her, especially after one of the guards at the covenant ended up being against them, and attempted to kill Alex (I was so not happy about that). And just what he says to her. Man. I seriously love Aiden and Alex together (All you Team Aiden people be prepared to be really happy with this book). Alex and Aiden are seriously perfect for each other! I <3 them! Now Seth on the other hand... NOT A FAN! He hid stuff from Alex! Very valuable information that she should have known and he hid it from her! And then what he does at the end of the book! If I say anymore about that it would really spoil it but if any of you already didn't like Seth, then he's just going to prove your dislike right.
OMG!!! Alex awakened at the end!!! I'm seriously going to go nuts waiting for Apollyon after that ending!!!!!! (Yes, even after reading Elixir, which I have, Still going nuts!)
