"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..
The plot, oh my god, the plot in this book is so freaking amazing!! And I totally saw that thing about Apollo coming!! I hit the nail right on the head on that point (and also on the Seth point), but the rest of the turns and twists shocked me to my core. This author isn't afraid to kill of characters, even the main ones, which made this book really nerve racking in the end scenes. This plot is just so good, it isn't only captivating, it's entrancing, spellbinding, it was just so freaking outstanding!! And the cliff-hanger made me want to pull my hair out. You can't leave a book like that!!
And there wasn't just "holy crap, they're all going to die!" twists, but also really good ones that make you so freaking happy!! Which made this book even more nail-biting, because you want these characters to be happy and they're so close to being happy, but than all this crap happens that prevents them from being totally happy. And it's just like "please don't kill these characters, just make them happy".
I can't really say more, because it's just an outstanding, captivating, heart-stopping book. The characters are still really great and I'm starting to like Marcus a bit more, which I'm happy about, because it means that even the side characters are getting depth to them. This book was just an outstanding book that it's not only one of my favorites for this series, but also one of my favorite books overall.
This book got...
Blew me away, one of the best books ever.
