St. Delphi will do anything to save Alex.
Even if it means doing the one thing he will never forgive himself for.
Even if it means making war against the gods.
Elixir is a Covenant novella that fits snugly between Deity, book three, and Apollyon, book four. It's told from Aiden's point-of-view rather than Alex's, which is a privilege because it's not everyday that we get a glimpse into Aiden's head. I would recommend that you don't read this book if you haven't read Deity, due to the fact that you will spoil everything for yourself, and you might get a little confused.
As we all know, Aiden adores Alex and would do anything to keep her safe, even if it means putting up with beast that she has become. She is not a beast by her appearance. She is a beast in the manner in which she is speaking and acting, because Seth is controlling her, tormenting her using the bond that connects the two and abusing it. Aiden knows that he must save Alex from Seth, whatever it takes, even if the only way is giving Alex the one thing she despises. Even if it means he has to start a war against the gods.
The novella shows us the extent Aiden would go to to keep Alex safe. We finally know what feelings he has been keeping inside for so long, and we feel how deeply Aiden cares for those around him. We understand his anger, his pain, his guilt and his confusion. I think I've fallen for him a little more as well. Aiden is a beautiful character, inside and out, and he deserves a happy ending. Though the ending to Elixir will probably leave you craving for Apollyon even more than before.
If you are a fan of the Covenant series, Elixir is a book that you CAN NOT miss out on! Not only does it keep your Apollyon hunger at bay, it also contains a whole load of swoon-worthy scenes, action and a few new characters. Come on, you know you want to read it...
