First off, I’d love to smack some sense into Alex, but I’m afraid she’d just kick my butt. Jennifer has produced an awesome second book in the Covenant trilogy. The action is non-stop, the plot is fantastic, and the ending made me VERY sad that the third book, Deity, isn’t out until October. *sighs*
Aiden seemed a bit more realistic (read: dumb guy) in this one, making me love him a little less, but only a little. Seth, on the other hand…. I just don’t get it. Yes, his features look chiseled out of marble, and he was there (and surprisingly sensitive) for Alex at a few key points when Aiden was not. But in the end he’s an unapologetic man-whore. Sorry, but he is. So, not that we know where I stand on the Aiden vs. Seth issue, moving on.
I love that there is obviously something bigger going on, but going into book three, I still don’t know what it is. The surprises just keep coming, which is awesome. Without spoiling the book, there isn’t a whole lot I can say about the plot. But I giggled, I cried (on the inside) and I read it really fast because there just isn’t a good spot to put this book down. I do feel that the sexual tensions were a little over the top for YA, but other than that, I have no complaints!
YA notes: strong language, suggestive/sexual content.
