"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 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...
|This book was AMAZING, everything I had hoped for and more... This book completely surpassed my expectations and has pretty much left me at a loss for words.|

The plot. I loved the plot of this book, though I was a little bit confused at the start because I had forgotten a bit of what happened in "Pure" which I probably should have re-read before reading this but I got caught back up really quickly and from then on it was an action packed emotional roller-coaster for the next three hundred pages of plot twists, unexpected relationships and things that I just didn't see coming. I loved Aiden and Alex's relationship and how it developed throughout the book and the ending.... so incredibly sad.
The characters. I Loved the characters in this book and reading all of them again. Like always Jennifer L. Armentrout has written the charcters flawlessly and they really came to life as I was reading them.
I loved Alex's character, I loved seeing how she changed throughout the book and how she finally had some happiness in her life no matter how short the time was. I thought that she was very strong throughout the book and I loved being able to read about her again.
I also really loved Aiden's character. He did struggle with his feelings for a lot of the book but I was glad to see him finally happy and that he made the right choice for himself no matter what the consequences.
The one charcter that I didn't like throughout this whole entire book was Seth he pretty much turned back into what he was in the first book and then some, completely self-centred, her hurt Alex for probably over half the book and betrayed her trust in him, to say that I dislike him now would be an understatement.
Overall I thought that this was a fantatstic book, full of unexpected events and it was just a really amazing book. Waiting till April for the next book is going to be hard but I guess I'll just re-read the series again.
