Welcome to the next stop in the Sentinel blog tour! I am such a huge fan of this series. Today I'm one of my favorite books from the series (well really they're all my favorite), Apollyon! You can read my reviews for the series here Half-Blood, Pure, Daimon, Deity, Apollyon). Before I tell you a little bit about Apollyon, check out what Jennifer had to say about her book, and her characters:
Check out my most recent The Covenant Series interview with Jennifer here, my other interviews with Jennifer here, and my features of The Covenant Series here.
Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.
The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.
Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.
SO, originally I was going to list quotes, and discuss all the things I loved about Jennifer's series, and specifically this book, but then I realized that my review that I originally posted here, sums up feels for this book perfectly. I'm just going to share my entire review here, because saying I LOVED THIS BOOK over and over and over again wouldn't be as exciting to read.
I love this series! It's captivating, thrilling, and leaves me wanting so much more. Jennifer Armentrout has created the perfect blend of action, suspense, twists, romance, and excitement that makes my heart race, and makes me wish I could turn the pages a little bit faster. I can't get enough of these characters. Each book in this series has gotten better and better. I'll admit, after Deity, I didn't think she could top all that happened in that book, but boy was I wrong.
Apollyon is an action packed, fast paced read that had me clinging to the pages, and holding my breathe for much of the story. There are shocking betrayals, fabulous twists, and those sweet moments I have loved since book one between Alex and Aiden. Don't worry, Seth is definitely ever present. The thing I wasn't excepting was to like a few characters that up until now, I didn't really care for. I like how things have changed in this book, some for the better, and some were surprising. Given all that has happened, things needed to change or else this story wouldn't be believable. What? Like you don't wish you had your own Apollyon or Sentinel? You know you do. *snickers*
I'm totally addicted to Jennifer Armentrout's writing. She has not only created this vivid world, but she writes these visually stunning, and beautiful moments between her characters. She creates these moments between her characters that are sensual and leave me breathless, and then a moment later she leaves me laughing over something snarky Alex has said. She throws in the right amount of danger that makes me heart race, and sneaks in these shocking twists that leave me on edge, while I try to decipher what's going to happen next. Aside from all that, this time around Jennifer takes readers deeper into her mesmerizing mythology, and treats us to a different side of her series. She introduces us to a different side of her Gods, and gives us more of her series's mythology. I loved it. The Underworld was fabulous!
Alex and Aiden. Alex and Seth. Alex and well Alex. Alex is a character whom I always thought was incredibly strong. Okay I've loved her for her snark and compassion, but I love that she's always held her own. This time around she battles herself, as much as she battles Seth. Seth..... I know I shouldn't want to like him, but like with Alex, he gets under my skin and I can't help it. I know. I know I shouldn't, but it's Seth. Don't get me wrong, I totally want to kick his butt as much as Alex does.
After reading the other three books in this series I didn't think I could love Aiden more than I did, and I swear I say this every time, but wow! Aiden seriously steps it up in this book, and I love what he does for Alex. The love Aiden and Alex have for each other is taken to a whole new level, and I loved it! I loved seeing how the sacrifices they've made for each other up to this point in the series come full circle. The way Jennifer has created their relationship is well, lovely. I know that sounds lame, but it is. I love that it's complicated and simplistic. Ooh those moments with these two in this book! I did say Jennifer writes sensual well didn't I?! She does.
I loved seeing some of my other favorite characters back in this book! I won't name names, but YAY for someone being in this book and the role they played in helping Alex. There are so many things I want to discuss about this book, but I can't. Like always, I do not want to spoil things for anyone. I am seriously in love with this series. I love that Jennifer keeps me on my toes with all that she throws into each of her books. Everything has a purpose in Jennifer's series. Her characters, her mythology, her scenes, the little things that have happened through out each book. Like always, Jennifer leaves me wishing her next book was already coming out, because I CAN NOT WAIT that long! I need more! If you're a fan of this series, I highly recommend that you pick it up TODAY!
