Publisher's Summary

Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome - especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom - so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do - and sacrifice - for her.

When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies - lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon…and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude…or killing her. When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

Book 2

This whole series, is one of my favorites! It’s a fantasy with a bit of romance. Full of action and suspense. I have read the whole series over again and again. Being a picky book listener- it’s got to be really good for me to want to do that! I love many of JLA’s books, but this series is my top of the list fav’s!
Justine- also does great narration!

I really don't like Alex...

I don't like the main character. She's dry, childish, and just plan unlikable... but I do find the story itself interesting.

Great story, awful narrator

Love the book, hate the narrator. Her voice is so annoying. I recognize that I have high standards after listening to Tavia Gilbert, but gods this lady's voice was like nails in a chalkboard.

The story is great...the narration? Not so much.

Breathy narration was super distracting, as well as mispronouncing basic words like "gaped" as "japped"

Great read

I love this story. It's a great take on Greek gods & demigods. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a little history.

Took me awhile to adjust to the narrator's voice

But once I did. I was enthralled. If you read & love the Lux series; and are listening to this one. Give the narrator time before saying "it sucks". It took me to get through book 1 & the majority of this one until I could fall into the story.

Captivating, smart

The Covenant is by far the best of Armentrout's book series. I keep re-reading them and they never get boring, discovering cleverly hidden hints and details each time. The characters are brilliant and the story unfolds into something magnificent. This second book lays down the foundation for the story that will spiral, swirl and grow from here on out. The narrator is simply the best, no one impersonates young adult characters, be it male or female, young or old, or even someone with a foreign accent, quite like Justine Eyre.

Seth's accent

Absolutely love the book, only one teeny miniscule problem. Seth's accent sounded Russian in the first book then towards the end he sounded French. Back to Russian in this one only to find out he is neither Russian or French. Other than that it's awesome

Good narrator. OK story.

I would rate this high, but it feels like she’s cut one book up into four parts to get more money out of you... not sure its worth four credits for 1 story.
