About the Author :
USA TODAY Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout lives in West Virginia. All the rumors you've heard about her state aren't true. Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write. She shares her home with her husband, his K-9 partner named Diesel, and her hyper Jack Russell Loki. Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class, where she spent her time writing short stories...therefore explaining her dismal grades in math. Jennifer writes Adult and Young Adult Urban Fantasy and Romance. She is represented by Kevan Lyon of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.
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... My Review : Holy cow! This book by far was my favorite of the series but I have a feeling the next book will just about kill me! Jennifer does amazing in this book with everything. The drama in this book will keep you reading until the end, there is no time for breaks when picking this book up, so get your snacks, drinks and everything you need to snuggle up with this book!
The characters again stole my heart and about broke it a million different times. I just LOVE about every single one. They are so well written, you just connect with them from book one and the feelings just grow with each book more and more. Alex is by far the most sarcastic, independent, take no shit from anyone kind of girl, she is someone most people can relate to easily in one way or the other but she does have her moments of vulnerability which just about kills you inside because it isn't often you see it.
Then there is Aiden : two words hot damn. He doesn't disappoint in this book at ALL! Just thinking of him makes my heart beat a little faster. He is by far one of the best written males in YA. No lie, he can aggravate you but everything heroes is calculated and most of the time planned, then comes Alex and he just throws it to the wind with her. The odds are stacked against them but he puts his loyalty to the ones he loves first. His loyalty is what makes him so sexy, and when you think of him you're thinking wow what an amazing guy. He will do anything to protect Alex and his friends.
Then there is Seth, arrogant all about himself Seth. I really started to like him, but he has some MAJOR baggage and it breaks my heart in this book. He is so aggravating, one minute he is cute vulnerable and the next cut throat. I just can't get a good read on him which makes him more the mysterious and you just can't help but think what will he do?! You want to just keep getting to know him and he always is surprising Alex along with us readers with some of the things he does.
Throughout this book you will cry, then laugh, cry some more, probably scream and then be happy. There is MAJOR drama and it will keep you on the edge of your seat. You never know where it is going, you start guessing and then it's like a punch in the gut. I am pretty sure Jennifer is plotting ways to make us crazy with her books but she has you hooked from the beginning and each book gets better and better. Love love love this series and cannot wait for Apollyon which I am pretty sure will kill me!
I got to sit down with Alex herself, and she is just as amazing as I thought if not a little hesitant :
1. How does it feel to be around Aiden? Seth?
"Yikes. That's a loaded question. Sometimes I want to hide from them. Sometimes I want to beat both of them up." She pauses. "And sometimes I just like being around them. Different reasons and all, but yeah..."
2. Do you think you'll protect those you love when you connect with Seth?
"I hope so. I mean, why wouldn't I? I'll still be myself." She frowns. "Or at least I hope so."
3. If you can't be a Sentinel what do you want to do?
She smiles. "I'd love to work in a zoo."
4. Do you ever get tired of feeling less than the Pures?
"I don't feel less than them." She shrugs. "I guess that why I tick so many of them off, but oh well.
5. Do you think you can over take Seth? Do you want to?
"Overtake him what? Fighting? I've gotten the upper hand a couple of times." A flush crosses her cheeks. "But he's such a dog, that I'm pretty sure he uses training to just cop a feel. Okay. I'm so off topic now. I think I'll be quiet."
