Rating: ★★★★★

Summary from Goodreads.com: 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.

When I finished reading Deity I wanted to scream because of the cliff-hanger Jennifer left us with.  Thank goodness the novella, Elixir, came out not long after I read Deity and at least I got a glimpse of what was going to happen next.  Still, I could not wait to get my hands on Apollyon and it definitely did not disappoint.

I could probably spend this entire post gushing about Aiden but I will restrain myself and just say how much I love him and he is totally drool worthy.  It broke my heart having to listen to Alex rant at him and jab at him so cruelly even knowing she was under the influence of Seth (who I despise!).  Thankfully Seth’s present is few and far between so we don’t have to listen to his self adoration as much as in the previous books.  There were a few moments that made me want to throw up a little as Alex would go on and on about “my Seth” and pretty much be the total Seth fan girl.  Ugh.

The story itself continues to be a roller coaster of a ride with the gods taking sides, conspiracies abounding and an interesting trip into the Underworld.  I love the gods and goddesses appearances as I’m a huge Greek mythology fan and I have to say Apollo really made me laugh in this book.  His one liner zingers and horrible timing were hilarious despite the situation being so dire.

There were a few surprises that I did not see coming throughout the book but happily this one doesn’t end on as much off a cliffhanger as Deity did.  Still I cannot wait for Sentinel to come out and seriously if you have not started this series what are you waiting for?!
