Covenant does a great job of tying up loose ends from Lazarus, and introducing new story lines that will make you want to pick up Epiphany as soon as you've closed this book. We continue to see the growth of Adrian Collins as he adjusts to having his father in his life again, being on the "other side" of fraternity life as a brother, and maintaining a passionate but secret relationship. This was my favorite thing about Covenant; seeing Adrian grow and mature. I liked Adrian a lot after reading Lazarus; my respect for Adrian grew after reading Covenant. He's not a perfect man, but he wants to be the best man he can be, and I respect that.
Darden brings back the great supporting cast of characters, and introduces some new ones as well. Adrian finds other gay friends that he builds relationship with, and we get to know Adam Collins and why he left. Adrian's mother also becomes a full character in the book, and we get a glimpse into her life. Mohammed has some great moments in the book as well. Rashid Darden has a way of making you fall in love with his characters, and I am happy to say that their stories grow and change as well.
You really need to buy Lazarus, Covenant, and Epiphany all together, so you can read them one after the other. Each book leaves you craving the next, and they get my highest recommendation.
