Aiden 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.

“I swore to you that I wouldn't let that happen, and I know I've failed you, but I'm not going to just give up, Alex. I'll never give up on you.”

I wasn't going to read this novella but I found that when starting Apollyon I was too confused and felt like I had missed something and I did, something huge.

Like all of the covers in this series Elixir has a stunning cover. I love the way that each of them has a different colour as it makes each of them different yet the same as they have a similar look about them.

 This was a short novella but it sure had a lot happening during that short period so it sure didn't feel like it was a novella I felt like I was reading a full length novel as everything was in depth with so many twists and turns. I loved that this book was from Aidens point of view as we then got to know what he was thinking which made a refreshing change as he did keep a lot of his feelings to himself throughout the series plus we get to know to what lengths he would actually go to when it comes to Alex. There was some very heartbreaking moments in Elixir with some tender and sweet moments. I didn't like that there wasn't much light relief that I come to expect in Armentrout's books. We did get to see a few different sides to Alex and none of them where good sides as none of them felt like Alex. This novella sure does set you up for Apollyon which I am now excited for to see what on earth is going to happen next but one things for sure it's not going to be pretty!

Overall this is a short but sweet novella which I highly recommend you read before you pick up Apollyon.

“Apollo had said he knew what this kind of love was capable of. And I finally understood why Paris had risked his country and his blood for Helen. Selfish, yes, but I understood. I would burn the world if that meant Alex would be safe.”
