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.

As always Jen has swooped in with another amazing read! I cannot wait to finish this series and delve into another of hers. This is my first series with her and she has definitely captured me as a forever fan!
Whats to tell I am your avarage 30something, with kids, a husband, job and life. Besides that I drive a lot and love to listen to books instead of the radio. I will stay up until 3am in bed listening if the book is worth it, and I have also been known to return a couple of books that I could not get threw the first chapter. I am a bad speller so I apoligize for it now, but will be honest about my reviews.
although it started out simular to vampire academy, by the middle of the second book it stays to stand on its own story. the 3rd book really stand out as a turning point in the story. i can't wait to moved onto the next book. if there was one negative about the story i could say it would be that it takes to long to get to the point.
I love this series, & Jennifer Armentrout is usually pretty good at not contradicting things from previous books; but in this book I found several contradictions to previous books. They weren't very big ones but I did find (without giving spoilers) some of the rituals & rules were different. Overall a good book & definitely worth the listen.
I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.
***You must start at the beginning of this series (Half-Blood) *** Do not start with this book
YES! I will listen to the whole series again in the future. I really liked these books. Solid writing from beginning to end. Made me cry at the end which is usually a sign to me that I was "all in" with the characters. Those of you who read the whole series, you'll know what I mean. I can't say more than that without giving anything away.
I liked the characters and the ups and downs they had to go through. You don't see why until later in the story, then you have the "ah-ha" moment.
Justine Eyre is a favorite. She did a very nice narration.
I cried at the end.
I hope people will give this series a shot, but you need to start at the beginning.
"Very gripping storyline"
This series is very gripping and the narrator brings the characters to life! Definitely recommended, you won't want it to end!!
