Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout


**********************
I tried to tone it down but this 
whole post could be  
**SPOILERY**
So if you haven't read Deity yet and don't want anything spoiled, please don't read anymore.

Just know I LOVED it and thought it is possibly the best on in the Covenant Series yet.
**********************
Seriously...don't read any further if you are 
anti-spoilers!

My thoughts on Deity: VERY good. It is steamy and sexy. There is some hot hooking up going on. (That Alex...play on player!) Alex awakens and book ends on cliff hanger. The plot thickens between the council and Lucian. The gods are more active. More people die. 


Like I said in the very big and bold section, I really, really liked this book! JLA is just such a good story teller. I feel like there is a good balance of action and romance. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend this book and this series. Great YA reading material!


And I love when books lend me a creative opportunity. (For another example see my Obsidian necklace here.) So when I read a certain section in the ARC, I knew I wanted something "from Aiden" in my collection!


This is what I come up with: 

This is what I started with, I couldn't find what I was 
looking for but I found this pretty rose shaped 
charm at my local craft store
and added a little glitter.
(And yes I cheated and used glitter nail polish!)

"...a dark-red crystal had been intricately designed into a rose in bloom, carved as if the petals were reaching up toward the sun."

"Lights winked and danced off the precious stone and it immediately warmed to my skin."


Not exactly what I originally had in mind and certainly not exactly how JLA described it, but I kind of like how it turned out.
I'm almost scared to ask but what do you think?
