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.
A little better than the first one and a little bit more interesting. There were a lot of emotional moments with a lot of steamy ones and also there was pain and heartbreak. I was crying so hard in a few chapters and a few made me laugh. That was mostly Seth. I never trusted him but he is an unpredictible and a funny guy which makes me like him. In this book Aiden made me hate him and then he made me fall in love with him. I liked his jelaous side. This is the book that made me both team Aiden and team Seth and I just couldnt decide. This series keeps getting better with every book.
