The Power by Jennifer L. Armentrout
(Titan Series #2)
Spencer Hill Press
Releasing Date: February 23, 2016

Genre: New Adult Paranormal

Rating: 5 Stars

Synopsis: 

With any great change, there is always strife, and the Covenant University has become the frontline between pure-bloods who want the Breed Order reinstated and the half-bloods who want the right to control their own destinies.

Fate has other plans.

The violence is escalating and war between the races seems inevitable, and it couldn’t come at a worse time. Hyperion may be out of commission, but Josie and Seth know they have only earned a reprieve.  Seth must get Josie fully prepared, which means controlling her newfound abilities, and they need to find the other demigods before the Titans do.

But the gods are sensing a greater threat.

Only one thing is more dangerous than a bunch of starved Titans, and that’s an out-of-control Apollyon. The aether in Josie is drawing Seth in deeper, and when lust mixes with love and gives way to power, he knows being close to her is not only dangerous to her, but to everyone around them, but letting her go requires a level of selflessness that just isn’t Seth’s style.

The paths taken in the past are becoming the roads of the future.

Just as chaos breaks out, familiar faces from the past return, complicating the already strained bond between Josie and Seth, and when the danger from the Titans erupts with devastating consequences, the dark allure of power calls to Seth again, but this time Josie might not be able to pull him back.

And when the struggle between power and love becomes the deadliest battleground, there may be no salvation.

Review

I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an advance reviewer copy for an honest review.

The Power was even better than the first. The Return was the build up to what I had been waiting for, and The Power was all the complex emotional relationship between Seth and Josie that I had been longing for. Seth still trying to discover who he is and if he deserves love and Josie so desperately trying to show him he is. This book is done in dual POV that of Josie and Seth. The Covenant Series is still my favorite JLA series and this book carries on all that nostalgia. The Power is full of whit, banter, action, and sexy-good-times!!!

Josie is still trying to come to terms with everything that has happened to her and who she is. She has learned that she is the daughter of Apollo and a demigod, she also knows that Titans are hunting her. Josie knows she is preparing for a battle that she may very well not win. She is doing her best to catch up in training and learning how to use her new found power. Everyone expects so much of her, but she also expects so much of herself. She wonders sometimes if Seth is disappointed in her.

Seth is so worried about Josie’s safety and if she even knows what is ahead of her and if she will be truly ready. He really cares for her and wants to protect her even if that means protecting her from himself. Seth worries that he will never be good enough for her, that he can never fight all his demons and he might hurt her. Seth still struggles with worth and what is right and wrong and if he can over come his desires for what is good.

Can Seth do what is right to protect someone else? Will Seth hurt Josie? Will the Titans find Josie? You have to read this epic sequel in the Titan series to find out!

The Power is seriously  fantastic and I could not put it down!!! It is so heart wrenching and warming all at the same time. You are so engrossed in the characters and their journey. You hope for the best but honestly nothing is ever neat and clean. I like that! It is not all happy ending, and you get moments of redemption and then moments you want to just say no, but then thank you for being authentic. I cannot wait to see what happens next and how this series will end. I will be on pins and needles waiting for book 3!!! I am giving The Power 5 out of 5 Stars.

THE RETURN_ARMENTROUT_Oct2014coverThe Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout
(Titan Series #1)
Spencer Hill Press
Released Date: February 16th, 2015

Genre: New Adult Paranormal

Synopsis:

The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.
