Covenant Series, Book 2
Note: This is the second book in a series. You've been warned.
Description (taken from Jennifer L Armentrout's website):
Some rules are made to be broken, but breaking the ultimate rule can change everything.
Alex lives–and loves–recklessly, until a single decision leads to a heartbreaking revelation.
As a mysterious threat closes in and she confronts a Council that wants to see her in servitude, Alex faces a choice between love that is fated… and love that is forbidden.
Alex is back in school after killing daimons who were trying to turn her. And with the scars and constant attention from Seth, the Appolyon, there's going to be rumors spreading. But as Daimon halfs start to appear, no where is safe and it's hard to trust people. And Alex must face the Council to tell them what she knows.
The closer Alex gets to Aiden, the more danger they put themselves in. And it takes a brutal wake-up call from Seth to point out everything they are risking for each other. Seth, who is so full of himself, yet he wants to see Alex succeed and ascend into the next Appolyon (did I mention this also benefits him?). And as the mythology pieces are slowly explained during the Daimon and Council crises, we get a little more hooked to this series.
While the first book had a lot of action that pulled you straight into the story, I felt like the second gave a little more information on how this world works. My biggest complaint with the first one was I didn't understand the whole mythology concept. But this one began to explain and leak a little bit out. I just hope the next book gives even more. Because I definitely want to keep reading this series and am waiting to be wowed.
I think this series is fun. I'm enjoying it, but I can't say I'm head over heels in love yet.
