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.

 Review:

 

Sentinel was a highly anticipated ending to a series I thoroughly enjoyed. I was pleasantly surprised by how well everything wrapped itself up. There were a few things that seemed rather odd, and took me a while to wrap my head around.

 

Alex started this book off, and in a way I felt let down. Alex was always so amazing and fierce, that the way she let her fear rule her really felt off to me. At first it almost seemed I was reading about a character who was similar to Alex, but NOT Alex. My intuition was on point because there was something that was off about her. I did truly feel bad for Alex in this story. Sentinel was the story of Alex growing up, letting her selfishness go, and making a decision for the big picture. It was hard to stomach the ending, but in the end I was happy with it.

 

Aiden didn’t play as big a part in this book as some of the others. Of course there was the love aspect of everything, but Aiden wasn’t pushing Alex as much as I’ve gotten used too. Seth totally redeemed himself in this book, I won’t say that I wasn’t still angry with him after everything, but in the end he did so much for Alex and Aiden. He deserves forgiveness, especially since he will be making amends.

 

Jennifer L Armentrout did a fantastic job blending mythology with a believable character. I absolutely enjoyed the characterization of the gods from Apollo to Aphrodite. I did feel like in a way the gods let Alex down. I know they thought they were making the right decision, but after all she sacrificed I really felt like they owed her more.

 

I truly enjoyed the final book in this series, and I would give it a 5 out of 5 stars. It had everything I wanted in a finale, and even some things I didn’t want. I’m so happy that there did end up being a happy ending, even if it wasn’t exactly perfect.
