Sentinel

Sentinel
Author : Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series : Covenant
Genres : Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, Young Adult
Publication : October 31st 2013 by Spencer Hill Press

This is the last book in the Covenant series. This review will spoil you if you haven’t read the previous books.

Goodreads’ synopsis : It’s a beautiful day for a war.

As the mortal world slowly slips into chaos of the godly kind, Alexandria Andros must overcome a stunning defeat that has left her shaken and in doubt of their ability to end this war once and for all.

And with all the obstacles between Alex and her happily-ever-after with the swoonworthy Aiden St. Delphi, they must now trust a deadly foe as they travel deep into the Underworld to release one of the most dangerous gods of all time.

In the stunning, action-packed climax to the bestselling Covenant series, Alex must face a terrible choice: the destruction of everything and everyone she holds dear… or the end of herself.

This will be a shorter review than usual because I forgot to write down all my thoughts… Silly me !

This is the last book in the Covenant series, and I really enjoyed it !This finale is really great ! The story is so gripping, making of this book a page turner !
I was so worried for the characters. It was really hard to put down my book because I wanted to know that they would be okay.
During the first part of the book, Alex has lost her inner light. She can’t feel anything except her love for Aiden.
The final battle is really epic and wonderfully lead. It’s a great ending to a really great series !
I’m not gonna talk more about the plot because I don’t want to spoil you.
I’m just gonna add that this book made me cry a lot, but also laugh ! Because yeah, there were so many funny moments !

What is it with gods and leather?” I muttered.
Hades slid me a long look. “We make it look good.”
They did. Couldn’t argue that.


Characters :
– Alex is so much more dark in this book. All this mess has changed her a lot. She has endured a lot and still endures so much. Much more than you can ask from a teenage girl.
– Seth is also different in this book, kind of remorseful. He couldn’t agree with what Ares and Lucian did. He lost his goofy side.
I like him more in this book. He’s trying to do what’s best.
– Aiden is doing his best to support Alex. He can’t stand to see her in so much emotional pain. He is soooo swoon worthy seriously !
– Deacon is trying his best to help. He hasn’t got the proper training but he wants to be useful. He doesn’t to stay behind.

I was moving at the speed of a three-legged turtle, so it took a while to blink my eyes open, and even then it was just a thin crack.


So much happened in this book. You barely have a moment to take a deep breath that another struggle, another plot twist happens. The ending nearly killed me.

I would highly recommend this series to any urban fantasy lover !
