Book Review: Apollyon






Apollyon

Covenant #4
Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publication:  April 4, 2013 by Spencer Hill Press

Synopsis:

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 God Killer. But breaking Alex's connection to Seth isn't the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the while "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


First, I would like to start with, did you know there are other books out there with the title Apollyon? I would have never guessed such a thing could be possible.

I also need to inform you that this book essentially took me forever to read! Not because it was bad or anything, but I fell out of my reading groove in the middle of reading it and I just got back into it to finish the book and my oh my, the ending did not disappoint. It definitely sets up for the last and final book in the series, which makes me sad. I absolutely hate it when good book series end. 

"Did you just Jedi-mind trick him?"

Quotes and phrases like this keep me coming back to JLA books for more witty comments.

To me, it read like a movie in my brain. Not just any movie though, a killer movie. I would watch it over and over again!

There were some errors, spelling and spacing wise that threw me off. Like the word "dusmped." How do you miss that one? Oh well, it didn't take away from the book. 

"I can't get a damn signal at all." Marcus glared at his cell phone like he could wish it into Tartarus. "Nothing at all."

Welcome to the Dakota's Marcus! I might suggest that next time you try AT&T, they are the only ones that seem to have decent coverage in North Dakota, so I am guessing it applies to South Dakota as well. Oh and just an FYI for ya, the further west you go, the worse it gets until you come back to civilization in Washington or Oregon.
