Elixir: A Covenant Novella

Elixir - Jennifer L. Armentrout This review was originally posted at The Bawdy Book Blog.Jennifer Armentrout, you’ve done it again! When am I going to get my HEA with the Covenant Series, huh?! Elixir left me antsy and breathless – and of course always wanting more, because that’s what a good novella does.Told from Aiden’s point of view, Elixir picks up right where Deity leaves off: they’ve moved Alex to a safer place to keep her from going to the First, and Aiden is helplessly watching over her, while he, Apollo and some of the other gods figure out what to do.I found the affects of Alex’s bond with the First absopositivelylutely fascinating! She was a different person! Totally evil, and man, that was cool. (And her fears of bonding with him, they were not totally without merit….). I really enjoyed seeing the story from Aiden’s point-of-view as well, because we’ve not had that previously, and it’s refreshing to get into his mind for a change. I used to really dig Seth over Aiden, but now….now I’m not sure. I still think Seth is redeemable; he has to be, my heart would just break otherwise. But seeing the world through Aiden’s eyes has made me like him even more than I already did, and I can see how much he has always loved Alex. Damn all these feels inside of me!Some things are revealed in Elixir that were not made known in Deity, so I do think this is a must-read for the series, otherwise you may be lost during Apollyon, which comes out (not) soon enough. Elixir, if nothing else, is definitely foreshadowing a darker twist to the novels, now that Alex is Awakened. I am so looking forward to finding out what she is like when – oops! Don’t want to spoil anything *evil smile*.I’m not going into further detail, but suffice it to say, this was a great, quick read and I can’t wait for the next in the series!
