Series: Titan, #2
Publication: February 23rd 2016 by Spencer Hill Press
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.
My spoiler free thoughts:
The Power was amazing, as all Jennifer L. Armentrout's books are. It is hilarious and has loads of lovable characters! I thoroughly enjoyed the books!
I love all the characters even more than I did after The Return. Josie has developed into a lovely character. The Power we focus more on her training. I really enjoyed watching her learn how to control her new demigod abilities. I loved getting to spend more time with Luke and Deacon. I love those guys if there was a book solely about them I'd read it for sure. And of course I love Seth.
The book opens with Seth and Josie settling into their relationship. I loved reading the ups and downs of their relationship; and there definitely highs and lows in The Power. I will say that there was a good bit of drama which made me a little bit frustrated with Seth, but I could understand why he was acting the way he was.
The plot took a little bit to get rolling but once it did I couldn't put it down. I think there was a little less action in The Power than The Returned because there was such a focus on Josie and Seth's relationship. There was loads of action at the end though. And that cliffhanger. I need the next book now!
Jennifer L. Armentrout knows how to write duel POV. I never got confused who's head I was in. I could distinguish between Seth and Josie quite easily which I think is something very important when I'm reading a book with multiple POVS.
For those of you who have read the Covenant Series I'd definitely pick up The Power because some of the characters from that series make an appearance. The Power is worth the read even just for the two who pop in.
I really enjoyed The Power. All of Jennifer L. Armentrout's books are hilarious and full of such vivid charcters you can't help but fall in love with!
My rating: 4 stars
