Today I am all sorts of excited to be participating in the blog tour for Sentinel by Jennifer L Armentrout hosted by Stuck In Books. In case you don't know (which idk how you wouldn't) I love all things JLA and she is easily my favorite author. I adore this series and am so sad to see it coming to an end, but I am also very excited for the conclusion. For my stop on the tour I have a spotlight on Aiden's novella; Elixir. I have re-posted my review of Elixir, and I have also included some songs that I think fit well with Elixir. Be sure to check out the other stops on the Sentinel Tour here.

THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE PREVIOUS BOOKS.
I dare you not to fall in love with Aiden St. Delphi after reading Elixir. This book makes it painfully clear that there is absolutely nothing he will not do for Alex. This includes pissing off a bunch of gods.
Elixir was a wonderful novella and it helped me cope with that killer ending in Deity. It didn’t make everything better, but it will give the reader a feeling a hope. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, if only Aiden and Alex are strong enough to make it there. I personally have faith, and if they don’t make it, I may just go curl up in a ball for the rest of my life.
The Alex we see in Elixir is a very different Alex from the one we have all come to know and love. For reasons I will not go into, Alex is almost a new person. I really missed her attitude, snark, and her vivacious personality.
Poor Aiden is forced to make some very tough choices on behalf of Alex in Elixir, because she really is in no place to make them for herself. I just wanted to hug him and make him feel better. He spends a good portion of the novella torturing himself over this, but in the end he will always do what is right by Alex.
I really loved getting inside Aiden’s head and finally seeing what goes on in there. Aiden has always been a tough one to crack and Elixir was very illuminating. We all know by now that he loves Alex, but I don’t think anyone realized just how much he truly loves her until you see his thoughts and understand just how deep those feelings go.
“And I finally understood why Paris had risked his country and his blood for Helen. Selfish, yes, but I understood. I would burn down the world if that meant Alex would be safe.”
This is by far my favorite JLA novella to date! Yes, Daimon and Shadows are great, but there is just something truly outstanding about Elixir.
My Elixir Playlist:
|Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble|
"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."
