There is need. And then there is Fate…
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.
“I guess there were two types of people in the world, those who sat around a fire, staring into the flames, and those who started the fire.
Seth and I started the fire, and then we danced around it.”
Oh. My. Gods! This book was even better than the first.
This book concentrated more on Seth and Alex trying to come together and cope with sharing the same destiny. I have got to say that I fell head over heels for Seth! He was awesome, sweet, kind and really loving towards Alex. Her heart still lies with Aiden, BUT…. could there possibly be some chemistry between the two??? One never knows!!!
Read the book to find out!!!
Aiden was trying his hardest to stay distant from Alex, but we all know how that works. I did get very angry with him from time to time with all that Alex had to put up with from him.
“Ever since I’ve met you, I’ve wanted to break every rule.” Aiden turned away, the muscles in his neck tensing. He sighed. “You’ll become the center
of someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth.”
Alex, of course is her same old snarky self. She still finds tons of trouble and has a high chance of being kicked out of school. Sometimes, I had to laugh at the decisions she made..”What exactly was she thinking?” *Shakes head* It doesn’t take long to figure out that someone is trying to sabotage her and that is when the book really gets interesting!
The ending left the reader with quite a shocker and wanting the next book immediately! The build up throughout the book was perfect and the “explosion” at the end left me with my heart racing and actually sweating!
The source of my absolute failure leaned against the training room wall. Dark waves tumbled over his forehead, falling into gunmetal gray eyes. Some would say Aiden St. Delphi needed a haircut, but I loved the wilder look he’d been favoring recently.
An instant later, our gazes locked. Aiden returned to the stance I was all too familiar with–well-defined arms crossed over his chest, legs widespread. Watching, always watching. Now he communicated a look that said I should be paying attention to Jackson and not him.
Tight coils sprung within me–another thing I’d grown accustomed to.
