"History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time."

Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday--to her awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she's a goner...and so is Aiden.

If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"--which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close personal one-on-one time--she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.
But  as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she's caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed...and destroyed.
Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate...

Teaser Sentence:

'"You shouldn't be doing that." The door handle jingled. It wasn't locked. "Alex!"

"I'm naked," I warned.
Silence and then, "Is that supposed to make me not want to come in there?"'

My thoughts:
It is hard to talk about the 3rd book in a series, without giving away spoilers from the other books, so this one may be a little short. 

I think Deity is the best I have read so far in the Covenant series. I sometimes think JLA is trying to send her readers into an emotional breakdown. I wanted to scream, cry, kick and throw a fit throughout this book. 
There were finally a few gods that had speaking roles. I have loved Greek mythology longer than I can remember, so I was super thrilled when some of the gods started showing up. 
I have decided I am firmly team Aiden. And Deacon and Luke-yep, I like that.
If you have not read this series, add it to your TBR list!
