Publisher's Summary

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 18th 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...

©2012 Jennifer L. Armentrout (P)2014 Tantor

Whiney heroine

I really like the story but man does the heroine go on my nerves. She never learns, never gets better, just keeps on making the same dumb mistakes acting the same dumb childish way and everybody just forgives her and loves her despite of it. Gah.
All other characters are great. I mean don't get me wrong I like when the main character is human and well, not perfect but there comes a point where I wish somebody would smack her and tell her to grow up or well, die and get replaced :-) seriously.

It got my attention....

This series has a bad wrap because the plot like is similar to Vampire Academy series. Yes the series does have similarities, but it break off into its own story. This series is about a hidden society of Greek Gods and their descendants ( I'm a huge fan of Greek mythology). Within the society there is a political cast system with pure blood descendants as the ruling class and the half-blood descendants as the lesser class of guards or servants for the pure bloods. It is law that there cannot be any relations between any pure bloods and half-bloods, any that are caught it is punishable by death. We have our 17 teen year old heroine Alexandria who is a half-blood in school training to be sentinel guard. Trying to catch up in school to graduate after being absent for 3 years while on the run with her mother, gorgeous pure-blood sentinel Aidan agrees to train her. The couple has to fight their forbidden attraction and Alex slowly finds out why her mother was trying to hide her from the covenant, Alex is slated to become the most powerful weapon in their world, but she isn't alone there is another that can harness the same power. Deity kept my attention and it ends in a cliffhanger and I already pre-ordered the next one.

Didn’t Love It

I have enjoyed the series, but in this book Alex really started to get on my nerves. It’s one thing to be confident and tough, but she started acting so defiant towards people, especially Apollo, which is supposed to be a god. She was way too stubborn. I don’t think she deserved Aiden.

It seems like Jennifer writes all her characters the same way. I’ve read a bunch of her books, and the female lead has the same personality in most of them.

Justine’s voice can get aggravating at times as well because she has this gravelly sound to it. I can’t stand the way she does the male voices. They all sound the same.

Heartbroken 😢

The ending on this book just stole heart. After all the crap Aiden has been through to be with Alexandria and she goes through her transformation to be bonded with Seth...it just broke my heart.

Too much despair

I know it’s just a story but the lead girl has so much despair! It gave me anxiety. Yes this may lead to ‘better’ story. But so much despair just didn’t sit well with me.
I’ll read next story and see if it gets better but gah! I like latest story from this author where the lead girl is stronger.

The main character is very pathetic

Main character is so childish and stupid. Why do they do this? Why try to make Alex (Alexandra) the main character strong, fight all the time but then she makes stupid decisions and not able to figure out the obvious.

Fantastic

This book is all action and romance, with one of my top book boyfriends Aiden. It revolves around the Awakening and Seth, so many questions yet to be answered, this is just getting better and better, definitely a series that is becoming one of my top PNR favorites. The story has dragged me into a dark black hole and I don't want to escape, I need more!

My favourite in the series

I love Deity, it’s just the perfect foundation for the perfect storm. It’s heavy on romance and fulfills all those expectations the first two books built up. I absolutely adore Justine’s narration and the accents and voices she uses for the different characters, she makes the story come alive.

Heroine got on my nerves!

So the book itself is good, the characters are good but the main heroine got.super frustrating! She made obvious mistakes and missed really obvious clues about things the reader could see coming easily. Sometimes I made me want to shake her or roll my eyes - maybe the narrator made it worse? Apart from that I actually enjoyed the story, but the main character getting on my nerves almost ruined it at times

what a roller coaster of emotions WOW

Definitely should not be in the children's section and should come with warnings, regarding triggers for Domestic Violence, physical and sexual abuse along with gaslighting.
THAT SAID, I bloody ❤ ❣ this series. Jennifer certainly knows how to get your emotions flying from one end of the spectrum to the other in the blink of an eye!! Great narration, Characters you love, hate and others you just want to jump into the pages and shake! Alex is one of the 1st 17 yo I've read about of late that actually sounds like a 17 yo. So many main 17yo female characters have the maturity of a 35 yo, This makes this book so much better. Her insecurities, grasping most things in hindsight. As the reader your thinking is she really that daft, then you realise she's 17, I was the same at that age! Going to get the next in the series right now!
