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.



 4/5

 I love this series. I have been looking forward to reading this next book for so long it seems, but I do not feel like this was as exciting as other past books in the series.
To me, this is an installment to move us to where we need to be in Alex's story. Yes, she has awakened, but I thought there would be more to it then there was. I don't feel like there was really any character growth and nothing special really stuck out about this one.
That being said there are parts that left me thinking "OMG", and this is not dull by any means. I personally just do not consider this to be as strong as a novel as that like of previous ones in the series.
I have a feeling all hell is going to break loose in the next book, and I can't wait. This is getting us set up and ready to go. And boy am I ready. Will there be a god showdown? I hope so because that would be fun!
I can't wait for the next part in Alex's story and to see how everything "goes down."
