I was recommended this book by a friend, so I figured that it couldn’t hurt to give this a try. But this book only seems semi decent, so far. I think it’s a matter of the idea being alright, but the execution is very, very bad. However, my friend did also say that it gets better, so I will be reading the entire series.
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…
I think I’ve said everything I had to say, in my reviews for the first two books. So far nothing has changed. The writing is still horrible and almost all the characters sucks.
Honestly, I think Seth is the only reason I keep reading these books. He’s such a breath of fresh air and on top of that, I just love how he messes with Alex and Aidan, which is a nice change from all the others’ that are basically bending over backwards to accommodate Alex whims.
Have you read any of these books? Do they sounds like something you’d read? What’s your take on the Mary Sue’s of the book world? Comment and let me know.
