Apollyon (Covenant #4)
by Jennifer Armentrout
Publication Date: April 9, 2013
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.
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.
Here are the teasers:
"God's , Alex, you don't just stick your finger into things."
I arched a brow.
He rolled his eyes. "Your mind scares me."
I grinned. "You like how my mind works."
Instant heat darkened his eyes to silver. "Most of the time, yes."
My eyes went wide. "Wow. Are you trying to get me naked?"
His silvery gaze met mine. "Do you really need to answer that:"
A hot, sweet flush stole across my cheeks. When he was like this--open, flirty, and downright sexy--I was at my lamest. I wasn't used to this side of him. I don't think I ever would be, and there was something thrilling in that.
