Deity Covenant #3

Deity (Covenant, #3)

Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Goodreads Summary:

"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...

It is about the gods [Apollyon, Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, Artemis and Dionysus - the god of wine and nonstop partying.
Ananke - the mother of the Fates and of destiny, she rules over compulsion and all forms of slavery and bondage. The ability to use compulsion is gifted from Ananke, she was also the one to come up with the Elixir that keeps halfs in servitude docile etc,. They rule the Hematois-purebloods and halfbloods.

Aiden is a pure. Alexa is the future second Apollyon but is a halfblood and is in love with Aiden. Seth is the first Apollyon.
Alexa's mother, once was a Pure but turned Daimon, and who is now dead , she had loved a halfblood, who up to this point, we never get to meet, but apparently is still alive, because it was forbidden that these two [breeds] should ever love each other. Half bloods were considered lesser than pures and they either ended up as the Pures servants or became Sentinels aka fighter/warriors.

The Covenant of the gods includes Marcus, Alexa's Uncle, Lucian, her stepfather, and other ministers. They currently serve the greater gods like Apollyon etc... omgd's this is complicated ain't it?
