This month I binged the final 4 books in the Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout!
Check out my reviews for Daimon the prequel novella, book 1 Half-blood, and book 2 Pure.
Deity (Covenant #3) ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5
My favorite book of the series!!
Wow! This book took me on a dang ride. And that ending!! I’ve said it in my reviews for the previous books, but I’m completely obsessed with this series. It’s not perfect, but the plot is so addicting that I just can’t stop reading. I love the mix of politics and gods – I’m on the edge of my seat the entire time I’m listening.
The audiobooks are absolutely fantastic and I love that there is the same narrator for the entire series. It has made binging this even more enjoyable and seamless – I love that the MC has the same voice (both literally and figuratively) throughout.
I love how fast paced and engaging this entire series is – but I think this is my favorite so far!!
This is a short novella that picks up directly after book 2 and gives a little insight into what happens once Alex awakens. It takes place from Aiden’s POV which was interesting but not a lot happens plot-wise.
Like with the prequel novella, I didn’t think this added a lot to the story. However I would say this is kind of critical to the series. The events in here aren’t really recapped and they do reference some of the events in book 4.
Overall this was just fine. This book starts and ends in the exact same place, but it does give you some insight into Alex’s awakening and Aiden’s struggles.
Apollyon (Covenant #4) ⭐⭐⭐.5
This book was really good, but it definitely felt like setup for the final book.
This picks up directly where the novella/book 3 left off. I loved that we got to see more of the gods in here and got more of the world. The trip to the Underworld was probably my favorite part of this!
The endings in this series get me every time! And this one was definitely no exception! The last like hour or so of this book had me on the edge of my seat.
I also appreciate that this series actually acknowledges and shows the losses of war. No one is safe and everyone has to make sacrifices. It’s definitely heartbreaking at times, but it makes this entire series feel so much more realistic and high stakes!
