Review: Deity by Jennifer Armentrout


"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...

apologize in advance for the fact that this review may make no sense and might be lengthier than my usual reviews.

GREAT PAINS HAVE BEEN TAKEN TO KEEP THIS REVIEW SPOILER FREE .

My Thoughts:
I finished reading this book AGES AGO and I've been meaning to write a review for a long time but I just couldn't get in the zone and write an amazing review for this one because I HAVE NO WORDS to describe the AWESOMENESS that is this book!

I've been a little (ok maybe very) disappointed with quite a few Jennifer Armentrout novels like Pure and Cursed but this book reminded me why I'm in love with this author.Jennifer does not hesitate to shock and surprise you with surprising new developments and new characters.The game has changed people! 

The stakes are higher,emotions run wild (*cough* Aiden *cough*) and people die.

I was losing interest in this series after Pure (book #2 ) and was seriously reconsidering buying this book when I got it for review.All I can say is thank you dear publishers! I might have missed out on this awesome book if not for you.

This book was as good if not BETTER than Half Blood (Book #1). On second thoughts it was MUCH MUCH  better because I couldn't predict anything! I don't want to spoil it for you guys and I won't even though I want to gush about EVERYTHING!

Aiden was amazing in this novel.His character changes a little and I'm loving the change.

Alex is her usual awesome self.I have no complaints except that she needs to *SEE* some things clearly.[My Lips are now sealed]

Seth ,Oh Seth! I have no words.

I also loved the secondary characters in this novel.Special shout out to Marcus,Deacon,Lea and Leon.There are some others but I promised NO SPOILERS.

The story flows so well and Jen delivers sucker punch after sucker punch until you're numb with shock or excitement but still feel shivers when you get a new hit.

This book is a gamechanger. A lot of things like enemies,acquaintances,relationships,scenarios change,

It's been a long time since I've rated a book 5 stars.This book deserves a 5 and much more.
DEFINITELY WORTH A READ!

Is it too soon to start demanding a sequel?

My Rating:
                              5/5

                      NEED TO READ!









FYI: (For your information) 

  1. The book ends with a cliffhanger
  2. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AND WILL ALWAYS REMAIN TEAM AIDEN!
  3. A novella called Elixir continues the story and should be read ONLY AFTER THIS BOOK! It has already been released and is available for free download on the spencer hill website
  4. YOU CAN WIN A COPY OF THIS BOOK IN MY 1000 FOLLOWERS GIVEAWAY!

  3. I keep hearing that this is the best in the series so far, and I really can't wait to get to it already. Sometimes having a reading schedule sucks, because I can't just read this whole series RIGHT NOT like I want to. Ugh! But I can't wait to get to it, though. Very excited!

  7. Aiden! Oooh this book made me very happy, and I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. ;) It also finally made me hate Seth, which is a relief in a strange sort of way. I am definitely eager for book 4! Lovely review. :)
