Synopsis:

Now includes bonus novella ELIXIR

History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time.

Alexandria isn’t sure she’s going to make it to her eighteenth birthday—to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she’s a goner... and so is Aiden.

If that’s not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"—which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time—she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.

But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she’s caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed… and destroyed. Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate...

A Covenant novella from Aiden’s POV?? Yes, please! While Deity ended with (shocker) a brutal cliffhanger, Jennifer decided to take pity on our poor souls and write a novella that kinda eased that ache until Apollyon comes out next week. This story showed how deeply Aiden loves Alex and how he would go to the ends of the earth to save her. He goes as far to say he’d die for her, and that in itself is an admirable trait.

Throughout the story he literally does anything he can to do what Alex would want in this situation, and it’s as beautiful as it is heartbreaking. He ultimately has to make an unsavory decision, but what’s for the best. At the end we are left with one very clear point: He will fight to the death for her and will take out anyone, even a God, to keep Alex alive.

I loved Elixir, and I would suggest it to anyone who has read this series. I hate reading novellas, but I loved this story and it left me feeling a little more hopeful towards Alex’s tremulous situation. Now I can breathe a little easier and hope for the best for Aiden and Alex in the next two books to come 🙂
