Story:
The story was very repetitive with “I hate” over and over until I found my focus drifting from the book.
Then out of nowhere from hate to #insta LOVE?
Nope, that didn’t do it for me. As for the main characters there could have been a deeper background to make them more real instead of this shallow version. There could also have been more focus on the relationships between the “male main character” family members. Instead this book was all over the place with a lot of different POV.

Performance:
This narrator had this “whiny” tone when she read. The character was supposed to be this strong badass, but with the wining that was hard to picture. I also thought the book pretty much sounded the same throughout the book with hardly any inflection of emotions at the right moments.

Overall:
I do not recommend this book, I didn’t enjoy it at all. I hope for the author’s sake that some of you do like this book, though.

This book is full of what none of you could EVER predict will happen. There is so much happening all at the same time.

I never cry, I am not one of those who does so easily no matter the emotion. While listening to this book I lost count of how often I burst into tears! Joy, loss, roaring laughter, pain, grief etc.

This book was amazing to read/listen to. I am so very happy to have journeyed with this book series! I also loved how it ended, it wasn’t an abrupt “the monsters are dead, long live the queen” ending. It was a more “this is how the happily ever after starts” kind of ending. I was very worried that it would be an abrupt ending, so I was pleased!

I send a final THANK YOU to Sarah J. Maas for being so awesome and for this fantastic book series! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Finally something right happened! Feyra goes girl power. She grows up from an awkward miserable broken teenager into this strong secure women. She learns so much in this book about herself, the people around her and her new world. Her new abilities. It is a long book that very realistically portraits a broken girls recovery. This book is heartbreaking with love and helplessness. Something new happens constantly.

Dislike
What is there to dislike about this book? I've no idea. I didn't like the first book. I didn't like Feyra until her first scene in her dungeon cell under the mountain. I never liked Tamlin, he was so cold and selfish in my opinion. Lucian I kind of liked at times, but the dude needs to grow both a spin and balls of steel.

With any great change, there is always strife, and Covenant University has become the front line between pure-bloods who want the Breed Order reinstated and the half-bloods who want the right to control their own destinies. The violence is escalating, and war between the races seems inevitable. Hyperion may be out of commission, but Josie and Seth know that they have only earned a reprieve. Seth must get Josie fully prepared, which means controlling her newfound abilities, and they need to find the other demigods before the Titans do.

The narrators reads the book so amazingly they truly sound as if they are Seth and Jocey. To me who reads the book is very important and these two preform 5/5 without me having to think twice as I rated this book.

I love how Jennifer has continued in the Covenant universe. I think it is awesome how she wrote the first series from the perspective of a teenage girl and wrote in the YA genre. It suits somehow the character in the book and the genre. The same can be said of Seth as one of the main characters in this spin-off series. Seth is a roge, brutish, arrogant and most of all HORNY character with moments of such sweetness and caring. Writing a book with Seth as main character in the YA genre? The whole audiobook would be full of BEEP's as they covered all the good parts in the book.

I also must say that this book is awesome from start to finish. The characters develop at a pace that is realistic which is something I admire in books. There is something going on every minute and I never got bored reading it.

Dislike
What is there to dislike? It took waaaaay too long for this book to sold by Audible and the third book is so far away. :-( I hate waiting.

I've five hours left of the book and have serious doubts I'll finish listening to it. I get fanatic to know what happens in books that isn't the greatest and I always read them from cover to cover. That says a lot then that I can't bring myself to listen to the end of this book. On a scale of 1-10, I'd give it a 1!

Seriously hated it. No wonder it was for sale. The narrator sucked. The tunes and singing did not do it for me. The constant repetition of this and that did not help, either. Weird, couldn't submit without adding at least one star, trust me, this wasn't worth that much.

So much happens in this book, the storyline, the characters, the relationship between the characters... Seriously, WOW! Can't say that I'd expected any of it. Authers who write books like this series are without a doubt geniuses, cunning, able to so gallantly create life-like characters. Characters that have faults and that continues to grow. Five stars easily!
