Book: Sentinel
Series: (Covenant #5)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

As the mortal world slowly slips into chaos of the godly kind, Alexandria Andros must overcome a stunning defeat that has left her shaken and in doubt of their ability to end this war once and for all.
And with all the obstacles between Alex and her happily-ever-after with the swoonworthy Aiden St. Delphi, they must now trust a deadly foe as they travel deep into the Underworld to release one of the most dangerous gods of all time.

While reading this book i come to this worthy notions about life:
- teen pregnancy is the bomb!
- men leather pants are having a comeback
- you are considered British if you end every sentence with the word LOVE
- sleeping with a boy in same bed always ends up in sex. Always (ergo)- romance is dead
- if you don't PDA you are not considered "in love"
*(on the side note - the best place for PDA is an official war meeting)
- to be considered brilliant you just have to find a room full of morons.
- male gods (if they exist) never wear upper body clothing
*(and women gods always wear see-trough gowns)
- when given the choice between serious talk and sex you should always choose the later
- blushing is the only appropriate reaction to a dirty talk (you don't want people thinking you are a slut now, do you?)
- 17 year old girls are consider women
*(also 21 year old boys are consider men). yeah...

This series is a story about a 17 year old girl, Greek god descendant, who learns her destiny is to became the God-Killer and battle the War-God to save the world.

Considering this book is the conclusion of the series one would expect an action packed book with a lot of loos ends to be tied.

And yes it does tie loos ends but, by the end you are so bored, you just stop caring.

The action is practically non existent (with exception of the last 3 chapters and also if you count f-ing... i don't). The characters just struggle through lazy plot, making stupid decisions regarding obvious questions. Some dialogs were repeated through the book, some were left unfinished hanging in the air, or unnecessary dragged through multiple chapters. Also, every third page had some kind of love declaration on it that in stead of making the love more intense and special it just numbed down the feeling making it unworthy and unbelievable.

But the main thing that bothered me is the same thing that bothered me in Origin (Lux #4). The author mixes the New and Young-Adult genres. This book is mislabeled and it makes me a little cheated and a little insulted. Look at it this way: If the book world was a giant chat room, this book would be the cutesy little-girl picture hiding a sex predator behind it...

The only moment i felt invested in the book was the last (only) Fight Scene. I liked that it was solely Alex and Seth moment of the story (not lovey-dovey moment but equally powerful). Consequently, this was the only book that i developed feelings for Seth, in the previous books he felt like furniture. That and Deacons sense of humor are the only things that makes this a TWO stars book in stead of ONE.

If you want fighting, snark and a lot of making out without an actual consequence of plot or character development please feel free and read this!

Over and Out.


  1. I'm sorry you wasted so much of your time reading this book. But next time, think about this. Your dissecting the book as it was a lab experiment. Yes they have sex. Yes gods dress oddly. Yes she thought she was pregnant, but what do you expect, for her to kill her baby? This isn't a lab experiment. This isn't supposed to be an assignment. You are extremely picky. I understand what you're saying but you are picky. You keep looking for this overall deeper meaning that the author isn't saying that you want to find. Your searching too deep in between the lines. Yes, books are meant to change our lives but in the little ways, in the small gestures and sayings. Not every book was written to be your miracle. Some women wrote this book because she thought the world would want it and that the world should hear this story. Not because she wanted you to find a miracle in it. So stop dissecting every book you read. Stop reading just to make a blog. You lost the true joy in reading somewhere. And the saddest thing isn't how harsh you are when you write your reviews, it that you lost the meaning of books and that each in there own way are amazing.

    1. I'm only picky (especially with this author and this series) because i had great expectation for this book. The series began with such a powerful start i hoped it would end with the same intensity.
      And yes maybe i should have read this without expectation but that's harder to do when its a series in question with previous books and previous impressions.

      The author told the story she felt like telling and many people loved it. (including you) i can see why they do. You should be able to see why i don't and don't judge me about it.
      I don't think its realistic to like every book you read.
