There are a couple of really great books (er, or I think they are probably really great books. Here’s hoping.) coming out today, but I had no problem choosing my pick of the week. The busy, busy Jennifer L. Armentrout‘s Deity, the third of her five Covenant books, was a clear winner for me. They are great young adult that doesn’t read like YA at all. And I think it is the first series in history that has a love triangle that works for me, since there is no way at this point in the series I could even begin to pick between Seth and Aiden.
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 and 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…

And, if you are interested, this is the official trailer for Deity. There isn’t really much to it, mostly a bunch of singing, but I love trailers so I thought what the hell.
What is your pick of the week? Are you diving into the last book of Jessica Andersen‘s Final Prophecy series, or the new Allie Beckstrom? I know I can’t wait to get my hands on Lord’s Fall from Thea Harrison, either, so it is looking like a good week for reading (and not doing much else).
