Synopsis: 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. 

My Thoughts:  Holy Daimon babies!!! What an ending.....Its all I can think about!! I love this series so much and it continues to be more addicting the more I read. I could not set this book down for a second and ended up staying up most of the night to finish, and this is not my first time reading this book.  After finishing the first book, Half-Blood, I had to keep going! Poor Alex, everything she continues to overcome is a little heartbreaking. Going after her mother, turned daimon, at the end of Half-Blood was stressful enough but then to break our hearts again and again with the continued loss Alex has to experience is hard to handle.

The way this book and series is written keeps the reader so entrapped in the plot and emotions of each and every character.  Jennifer L. Arnetrout is an incredible author made to write amazing fantasy books, I have yet to be disappointed. Every time I open one her books I am transported in to the world she has created and don't want to leave!! I can't express how much I love this series. Plus its hard not to love Alex, Aiden, Seth and Caleb, now on to the next book, Diety!!! Eeeeee!!
