In the fourth book of the series, Alex has to learn to adjust to her new powers while Seth and Aiden fight her fate. Will she join Seth and let him become the god killer or will she go with Aiden who tries to save her true self.

The first third of the book or so, we see the effects of the connection that Seth and Alex have. And if you questioned whether or not Aiden really loved Alex, you won’t after this book. Aiden lets down his guard and we see the vulnerable side to him.

Alex gets to see the full extent to what this war is all about. The line is drawn and the war is growing closer and closer. When the war finally begins, it’s going to be crazy and you know that lives will be lost.

Alex and Aiden’s relationship finally comes to a head in this book. With the war imminent, it forces them to come to terms with their feelings and decide what’s more important, holding their feelings in or embracing them.

Seth is virtually not in this book. We only see him for the first third of the book and then periodically throughout the rest of the book. At the beginning of the book, you may be angry with him (for how he’s been handling things) but by the end of the book he’s back to your good side.

Armentrout is able to create a story with a lot of twists and turns that will have you guessing from chapter to chapter. As the “plot thickens” and Alex begins to see what her Fate is, we get to see how this all who thing came to be and what needs to be done to end it.

The story is a bit slow at the beginning as it sets up the final book, but once you get to the climax, you won’t be able to put it down.

Rating: B
