Blog Tour: Apollyon (Covenant series #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout - Interview with Aiden!!


Hi guys!! I could not be more excited to be taking part in this tour!! Everyone knows I am a huge JLA fan, and I love promoting her books in any way possible! I first want to thank Valerie from Stuck In Books for inviting me to be part of this tour! I have already read and reviewed Apollyon and it was amazing!! You can see my review here if you would like. Today though, I have an interview with the swoon worthy and awesome Aiden St. Delphi!! I know you are dying to read it, but first, I must give you the book details. Oh, and I should also warn you that if you haven't read Deity, parts of the interview might be a bit spoilery. Each blog on the tour has a letter that you will need to collect to get a special POV from Aiden's POV too. You can see the full tour schedule by clicking on the banner above!


  • Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
  • Publication date: 4/9/2013
  • Series: Covenant , #4 
Purchase: Amazon | B&N | The Book Depository

* This is the fourth book in the series. If you haven't started the series yet, then the synopsis will be spoilery.. My review is spoiler free for this book, but may contain spoilers for the previous books in the series.

Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.

Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.

The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.

Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.

* If you have not yet read Deity, this interview will contain some spoilers. Read on at your own risk.

Character Interview 

Aiden, thanks so much for taking the time for a quick interview. I know things are totally crazy so I won't keep you long.

"Thank you for that."

Things are intense right now, how are you holding up?

"I'm... I'm getting by. It's really a taking it day by day kind of thing."

So this whole thing with Alex must be hard on you, but if anyone can help her it's you. Are you making any progress with the situation?

"This thing with Alex is tearing me up, to be honest. Seeing how she was on the Elixir and how she is connected to Seth is something I never wanted to see. But I'm not going to give up on her. I'll never give up on her."

You have been so strong through this. I have faith that things will work out in the end. They have to!

If you could go back and change anything since you found Alex and brought her back, would you?

"Gods, there are so many things I would've changed, but in the end, would we've ultimately ended up in the same place that we're in now? I can tell you that I'd never change loving her. I wish I had told her before I did. I wish... I wish we had more time."

The whole thing with Leon had me a bit shocked, though I suppose I should have known something was up him being so... perceptive and such. What were you thinking when his secret came out?

"You were shocked? Ha. Hindsight is always 20/20, right? There were so many obvious things about Leon, but it's not like you'd think Apollo right off the bat. I kept thinking 'wow, I've hit Apollo in training.'"
I guess I was so focused on everything else going on that I never suspected that Leon was a God. I should have know, no one can have timing like his so often! ;)

If you get through this, which I am confident that you will, what are your plans for you and Alex?

"The only plans we could ever have and all I ever want is to have a future were I'm able to love her."
I really hope that you get that. I know that if anyone can make it work it's you two. You brought her back from what seemed an impossible situation because of your love!!

Now, tell me what you would like to do to Seth. Like really, in detail. I would love to know. ;)

"What I want to do with Seth is remensecent of Prometheus and the eagle. Check that out and you'll know exactly what I have in store for him."

I admit that is a pretty awesome punishment. Is it disturbing that I would love to see that? Honestly though, I do have hope for Seth. I don't think I will ever like him, but I think that he does truly care about Alex on some level and if anyone can sway him to do what's right, it's her. If she can't, then he deserves every disturbing punishment you can put on him!

Well, I won't keep you any longer. I really like Alex and I hate taking you away from her. I know that you will take care of her Aiden. Thank you for talking to me.

"Thank you. Oh. And be careful when you leave. Furies have been poking around outside. Don't want to come face to face with one of them."

Thanks for the warning. I am totally not badass enough to deal with Furies. 


 Now, for my letter!! Don't forget you have to collect all the letters to unlock a certain awesome scene in Chapter 22 from Deity from Aiden's POV. It will be on Stuck In Books on Friday April 12th. Once you have all the letters, figure out what the short phrase is. It will be in all capitals and no spaces. That's important to remember to unlock the POV. 



This is the third stop on the tour so there are already two other letters:


There will also be a live chat the night of the official release date for Apollyon. You can find it on Jennifer's livestream site by clicking here. It will happen 4/9/13 at 7pm EST

  2. Great interview! Aiden is a good guy but I just find him a bit boring. I still have faith in Seth. He is a good guy too he has just been manipulated. Seth is hilarious though! I loved him in the second book.

    1. I love Aiden. He is really perfect for Alex. Seth is funny, but he's an arrogant tool most of the time lol!! I do agree that he's got good in him too. I have hope for him, but I don't want him with Alex at all!!

  3. I never really got into this series, so I'm kind of lost here. I will say that I agree with Jennifer's comment about Seth. (Don't throw anything at me!)
    But anyway, I'm happy you're loving the series so much.

    1. Haha!! In Pure I liked Seth so I won't throw things at you. I don't hate Seth, I just never really thought of him as a good love interest for Alex. I was always team Aiden in that aspect. I do have hope that Seth will do what is right in the end. He cares for Alex and hopefully she can get through to him.

  39. I’m sad to say that I think I lost interest in this series. Book one was okay, book 2 and 3 I really liked. I don’t know why, I guess it’s just too many other books I want to read…
    I heard this one ends on another killer cliffhanger. Maybe that’s why. I still haven’t read Opal because of the cliffhanger either although I have my suspicions…
    Love character interviews!

  43. Hahahaha awesome interview! So was everyone seriously surprised by the Leon thing? 'Cause I totally predicted it. I have a feeling that might be because Once I finally got may hands on the series I was able to read from Daimon straight through to Deity...

  44. Aww Aiden is seriously such a sweet guy :) I love him so much! And I'm really excited to read this scene when I finally unlock it. Jennifer really knows how to write the steamy scenes lol ;)

  45. AIDEN! Yay. I think he and Alex will have a HEA, but to get there I'm more than sure that some tough choices are about to be made and battles to be fought. I think you did an awesome job with your questions :) Lovely interview, Amy!
