"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... (From Goodreads)I waited a week between the finishing this book and writing this review. Mainly because I was incapable of words. No joke, I sat in bed for a solid 10 minutes after I finished with my mind blown and incapable of processing everyday stimuli.
In fact, I still can't find the words to describe it's awesome-ness.
This series just keeps getting better and better. This series was originally criticized for it's similarities to Vampire Academy, but has completely taken on a life of it's own. And JLA is the queen of sexual tension. I wanted to scream at Alex and Aiden quite a bit. Holy crap, she had me wrapped around her finger for the whole book, for every twist and turn. As soon as I finished, I wanted to devour it again.
I'd also like to point out that I was totally right about the guitar pick.
In conclusion, give Jennifer L. Armentrout all the stars.
Much love, Samantha
