Aiden St. Delphi will do anything to save Alex.
Even if it means doing the one thing he will never forgive himself for.
Even if it means making war against the gods.


Review: DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU HAVEN'T READ DEITY. Like no joke. It would spoil things for you and it would also be massively confusing for those who havent read Deity yet. 

Are we ready then???

MMMMMM. Aiden! I have to say, you are seriously an amazing guy. Alex is so lucky she has you in her life. That being said. I loved this being from Aidens POV! I've been dying to see what goes on in his head during certain situations and I loved every minute of being in his head, even if it was painful to read.

*SPOILERS FROM THIS POINT ON, SO DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T READ DEITY OR ELIXIR YET* 

*I'M SERIOUS!!!! I GAVE YOU FAIR WARNING! IF YOU SPOIL IT FOR YOURSELF IT'S YOUR FAULT NOW!* 

So we've picked up right where Deity left off. Alex has Awakened. But she isn't herself anymore. She's consumed but this anger, and this rage that being connected to Seth is causing. He's constantly in her head. Telling her things, making her not be herself. Trying to control her. (I really hate that guy). The bond is too strong for Alex to be able to control at the moment. Its painful to watch her like that. 

Aiden. Man. He loves Alex so much and its killing him seeing Alex like this when he knows that's not her in there, and just Seth controlling her through the bond. And then on top of that he has a god telling him to put Alex on the Elixir to be able to temporarily break the bond and get her under control. And that if he doesn't do that they may have to kill her. And nobody wants that. Aiden was put in a really tough spot with all the Alex related decisions he had to make and I felt so bad for him. He wanted to try and get through to her without any of that having to happen. And he knows he can, but he needs Alex to fight harder. For a moment Alex was able to fight the bond and be herself again but it pained her, like literally pained her to do it. But Aiden knows she can do it if she tries hard enough and he's determined to help her do it. 

The gods. We got a shocker with them again. We found out the Apollyon in every generation has come from Apollo's bloodline. And as we learned in Deity, Alex is of Apollo's bloodline. We found out that Alex was supposed to be the first Apollyon, not Seth (UGH, STUPID SETH!). So that makes Seth come from the same line as Solaris (I think that's the name) and no one knows what Gods bloodline he's from. But no one wants to take responsibility for him either (who could blame them?) Somehow Seth slipped through the cracks first (no bueno!) 

So much was packed into this little novella and I loved every minute of it!!! 

5 Stars!
