Apollyon (Covenant, #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout | Review

My rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐



Do you ever just stop and think of all the different ways you’d love to torture murder a character?

Because that’s all I’m thinking of right now.

Oh and how could anyone have waited so long for the last book?!?!

This is a re-read and yet all I want to do is ignore writing this review and go onto the next book even though I know how it all ends…….ahhh I’m not looking forward to that.😓

And I swear, I feel like I’m repeating the same thing over and over again in each review xD. Just me rambling on and on about how much I love these guys—but I just can’t stop.😍

🛑WARNING: SPOILERS FROM PREVIOUS BOOKS!!!🛑

“To love is not weak. Love is the strongest thing there is.”

Aiden St. Delphi does it again.🥺 He refuses to give up on Evil-Alex even after Normal-Alex has connected to the Seth and being told that there was no hope for her. Agghhhh Aiden & Alex!!! Their love for each other makes me want to cry.😭😍

Omg Alex’s Apollyon powers were ✨A M A Z I N G✨ And there’s so much growth in her, even Laadan mentions how mature Alex has become (although I mean, that’s bound to happen when you’ve dealt with the things she has😬). STILL. MY FAVOURITE WAS ALEX GOING APOLLYON ON ALL THOSE SUCKERS.😈😆(Apollyons really are OP xD)

We see wayyy more of Deacon, Luke, Olivia, Marcus, and yes, even Lea. I love how Marcus and Alex’s relationship have improved A LOT since the first book. It almost looks like they were never hostile towards each other xD.

And NOW is when Marcus actually acts like Alex’s uncle and talks about the sleeping arrangements between the her and Aiden.😂😂😂 That’s funny lol. At least he’s doing his duty as her guardian lol.

Now DEACON.😍😍😍

Gosh, why are the St. Delphis just so lovable?!?! I would 100% love having a spin-off of Deacon, but I know that’s never going to happen (or maybe it’s the “never to say never” thingy).

From the first book, he was seen as the laid-back and drunk addict teen, who didn’t seem to care at all about anything or what his brother thought, but oh how wrong that was. Deacon fiercely loves Aiden and wants more than anything for him to be happy. The comments he makes whenever he’s around Aiden & Alex, too hehe.😏🥰

“Skittles?”

“Please.”

I dumped some into his open palm, then picked out the green ones. Aiden grinned at me.

“You know I don’t like the green ones?”

Shrugging, I popped them in my mouth.

“The few times I’ve seen you eat them, you leave the green ones behind.”

Deacon popped his head between our seats.

“That’s true love right there.”

“That it is.”

^ I love this guy. ❤

Also, there were a lot of references to (a show? I’m pretty sure) Supernatural and even though I totally haven’t watched it, I love how JLA adds in these kind of reference to real-life tv shows xD.

“Go ahead,” Apollo said to Luke. “Tell them what it is, since it’s obviously hugging material.”
Crimson stained Luke’s cheeks. “Legend goes that one of the gates to hell is in Stull Cemetery in Kansas.”
“Oh, gods,” I muttered, remembering where I’d heard this before. “Wasn’t that a season finale on Supernatural?” When the boys nodded, my eyes rolled. “Seriously? Are Sam and Dean going to be there?”

Ahh yes, and Apollo. The guy known to pop in at the worst time and scare the hell out of the others😂. I mean, if a God just poofed in out of nowhere, I’d be pretty freaked out , too xD (he obviously enjoys doing that). LOL and whenever he appeared, almost always something funny would come out of it.😆

“They do.” Apollo’s eyes narrowed on me. “But I was hoping there was something knocking around in her brain that held the answer to that little problem. But—”

Apollo smacked a hand down on my leg. “Must you always be moving some part of your body?”

I glared at him as I not-so-gently removed his hand. The contact of his flesh on mine brought the marks of Apollyon out like nothing else. And I knew he saw them by the way his eyes darted over my face. “It’s not hurting you,” I said.

“It’s annoying.”

“You’re annoying,” I shot back.

To our left, Aiden rolled his eyes. “All right, children, back to the important stuff.”

Aghhh that twist at the end, though…….the first time I read this book I NEVER thought of it being him all along. But, when you think about it…..it’s so obvious.😂 What can I say? I’m always terrible at guessing who the culprit is. And now is that time when I really, really, wish I could jump in a book and kill someone in the most creative ways possible. (Yes, I might be a little crazy)

There are many things I want, but one thing I definitely don’t want is FOR THIS SERIES TO END AGAIN😭😭😭

Well, I guess I should be preparing my Sentinel box of tissues……….

“Eíste pánta mou…”

“You are my everything.”
