Review: Sentinel by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Sentinel (Covenant, #5)
Sentinel (Covenant #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
It's a beautiful day for a war.
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.
In the stunning, action-packed climax to the bestselling Covenant series, Alex must face a terrible choice: the destruction of everything and everyone she holds dear… or the end of herself.

    Wow. What an ending. I devoured this book, and loved every second. Well, some of it was hard. Sad, tragic, funny, sexy, violent, an army of awesome (yes, they do call themselves that, and are indeed made of awesome), twists and turns, with unexpected characters, turns of events and an ending that blew me away. 
    This was everything I wanted and more for a series ending. I have loved each of the books, swooning over Aiden, laughing with Alex, jaw dropped at the intense action and fighting. Smirking at the gods especially Apollo and Seth can be lumped into all of this too when they deserve it, rolling my eyes at other times, wanting to smack them, and not getting what was going on as well as in awe of the sacrifice and emotion going on with them. Aiden is as sweet, understanding, and supportive of Alex as well, and we get to see that streak of jealousy that makes me love him even more. 
    Alex has really grown in some ways, learning that its okay to be afraid, that she needs to open up. In others she is still the same stubborn, fun loving, loyal girl she has been throughout the series. I think that we really get to see her strength in new ways and that she steps up in so many areas in this one. I was so proud of her. 
    Seth really surprised me in this one, and what he ends up doing really had my jaw hitting the floor. He comes face to face with the bad decisions he's made and take a look at who he has become and what he needs to do to make up for it.  I would love it if we got to see more from him so that we know what becomes of his choices. Hint, Hint Jennifer if by some chance you're reading this.
    I know that all of my questions were answered and the threads that I can remember were wrapped up to my satisfaction.
    It is so hard to review without spoiling anything, but this did not let me down at all. 

Bottom Line: Swoony, action packed series finale with a mind blowing ending.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
End of yourself or all you hold dear?
