Happy Book Birthday!

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.
5 stars - OMG what a perfect end to an incredible series that I adored!
I will admit to being terrified to read this book. The ending of this incredible series that I have loved so much - would things work out? Would Alex and Aiden get a HEA? Would Ares get his butt kicked? Was there any way this brilliant author could make things work out? Oh, I can't tell you any of that but I will tell you that I stressed. I cried. I screamed. I gasped. I sputtered. WTH? Really? OMG! Did that just happen? Are you freaking kidding me? Yep, that just about sums it up. It's an emotional ending to a brilliant series.
Alex is broken from her fight with Ares. She's not the same and something is really wrong with her. She's not sure she's the one to lead the army of awesomeness and she may be right. She steps out of character a lot but with good reason. One, she had been through a lot and two, something was definitely up. And that is the brilliance of this last book. Armentrout keeps us guessing and hopping throughout. It's not just leading up to one big bang near the end, no the unexpected is popping up everywhere - especially with Alex.
Aiden. Hot damn, I didn't think I could love this boy more but I do. He stands by Alex. He sacrifices for Alex. He's totally jealous, which is super cute. He takes some serious licks in this book but that boys love knows no end. I was proud of him. I fell all over for him. I want to hug him and cuddle him and....yeah I know he's Alex's but I can dream can't I?
I have to say something about Seth. I have never been a Seth fan. I saw through him from the first time I met him. Shallow and self-centered, I never thought he cared for Alex. I never saw the self-sacrifice that Aiden constantly showed. But Seth has redeemed himself. That is all I have to say about that.
The story is fast paced and, oh, so good. I couldn't put it down. Really, this book kept surprising me. Every time I thought I had something figured out, things would turn and I was stunned. My beloved characters went through so much and I right along with them. This whole world evolved and I admit to liking the result. I freaking LOVED the ending. It's perfect. Just perfect.
My fear about reading it was justified and unfounded. While I hate to see this series end, I love the way it does it. And as long as I can re-read and have more JLA books, I'm a happy reader.
If you have been reading this series, then RUN and get this one NOW. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading the Covenant series, then start. It's great paranormal YA.

Mini interview with JLA
How does it feel to have this series be over? I’m excited for readers to have the final book, but I’m also sad to say goodbye to the story. It’s kind of bittersweet.
Any plans for a spin-off series set in the same world? Who knows right now?
Any news on the TV show? I know that it’s in the works right now, but I don’t have any news that I can share yet.
