Apollyon Review

360 pages
Release date: April 9th, 2013

Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex. Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back. The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries. Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.

Review (ARC):
I love this series more than I thought possible! No matter what happens in her life, Alex is a heroine to admire and look up to. Alex is strong mentally and physically, and has a deep concern for others over herself. Alex has grown so much from the impulsive girl she used to be and the awakening of her powers has made her stronger overall. Most of the characters from the previous novels return and we get to see changes in them as well. I love that despite the serious situation at hand, there is still some added comic relief from Alex's friends. The relationship between Alex and Aiden has gone through a lot so its good that we finally get to see them in a good place despite everything else going on around them. This novel felt like more of a filler right before the end of the series. A lot of it had to do with Alex's journey to find out how to stop Seth and the god who is helping him. There is so much action and danger that you just know there will be some losses along the way. I absolutely loved this novel and I'm excited to see how it all ends. I definitely recommend that you read this if you love mythology but make sure to pick up the rest of the novels in the Covenant series first.
