We’re in this together, Alex, to the end.Deity, p. 332.
Oh my god, what a journey. When I started reading this book I was a bit doubtful concerning Alex’s relationship with Aiden, her connection with Seth and the developments that would affect all three of them. After ending this book, I was left overwhelmed and awed and I had tears in my eyes for I had forgotten about the roles of the gods in this story.
The book starts with the same dynamics, with which it ended in Pure: With unbelievable news and thus with incredibly huge expectations concerning these news. This also affected my reading this book as quickly as possible, for I had the feeling, that in the first two novels the ‚basics‘ were introduced to the reader and now the story can really, like REALLY start. And that also means that the protagonists don’t just talk about the gods and their myths but that the very gods they descend from are appearing.
And all of a sudden it is not just about the threat of two Apollyons – two God-Killers – existing, but also the gods mingling in everything and creating a war against the Apollyons and those, who fight by their sides. It really was very epic to see which gods fought for which reasons on who’s side and until the end you couldn’t really be sure about the outcome of it all. It was so entertaining reading this book because there were many twists you couldn’t foresee and some surprises that took me off guard and just left me speechless. I know I always repeat this but I can’t say it enough: Jennifer is amazingly talented for she leaves her readers in the dark until the end and tops it all with a shocking ending. I just love that!
You had hope, Alex. No one can ever be faulted for hope.Deity, p. 331.
Deity the third novel of the Covenant – series of Jennifer L. Armentrout killed me – literally. I was worried, terrified and overwhelmed, the author really killed me and left me crying in the middle of the night. I have no better way of describing what this book did to me and therefore how amazingly the story twisted in this part. I love it so, so much! It’s much better than the previous ones because of the gods revealing themselves – even those who already stayed with the sentinels in the Covenant – , their power and also because of Alex’s choice of partner (finally) becomes clear. I love this book, it is a highlight and I know that this story will linger a little while longer in my thoughts – even when I continue reading the series. Dear Jennifer: Chapeau!
Ich hatte Recht behalten, als ich annahm, dass die Entwicklung der Geschichte in den jeweiligen Büchern sich steigern würde und habe vorsichtig meine jeweiligen Bewertungen für die ersten beiden Bände der Serie abgegeben – denn dieses Buch ist der Höhepunkt, zumindest bis jetzt. Ich liebe alles an dieser Geschichte: Die Tiefe, die die jeweiligen Figuren erhalten haben, die Erscheinung der Götter bzw. die Offenbarung einiger, die sich sowieso schon die ganze Zeit unter den Protagonisten befunden haben sowie ihre Rolle in dem sich anbahnenden Krieg zwischen Menschen, Hematoi und den Göttern. Am coolsten jedoch fand ich die unerwarteten Entwicklungen und die Wendepunkte, die sich in diesem Buch ereignet haben. Es ist ein Buch, dass ich am Ende noch eine Weile in den Armen halten musste, da ich so überwältigt von den Entwicklungen war und sogar einige Tränen fließen mussten. Dies ist mein erstes Highlight in diesem Jahr: Es ist ein Lieblingsbookie von einer Lieblingsautorin und kann daher nur mit der Kategorie Tauchliebe bewertet werden. Ich liebe dieses Buch so sehr, dass ich sicherlich noch eine Weile darin blättern und einige Geschehnisse noch einmal lesen muss – es war einfach der absolute Wahnsinn!

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… Source
