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.
Oh. My. Gods. “The Power” was definitely a surprising and epic second installment in the Titan series, and I enjoyed reading every single page. As always, Seth, Josie, and most of the other characters were amazing, and I loved their personalities, chemistry, and banter with each other. They were all immensely entertaining, and there was certainly never a dull moment with any of them. I loved that a few characters from the Covenant series made an appearance, and I was pleasantly surprised that they were incorporated into more of the storyline than I thought they would be. It was amazing to once again have the story told from both Seth and Josie’s POV as well. They were both awesome and easily likable characters, and I was rooting for them as a couple from the very beginning.
There were a few things I didn’t care for that occurred throughout the book, but I don’t want to give away any spoilers in case there are some people who haven’t read it yet, so I’ll keep my lips sealed. ;) I was trying to decide if I liked “The Power” more than I did “The Return,” and to be honest I really don’t know. I’d say they were about equal for me. That being said, I really did enjoy reading “The Power” and getting to discover more about Seth, Josie, and the rest of the Titan series gang. There were times in the story where I experienced great happiness, great sadness, and everything in between, but the book was an excellent mixture of all those feelings and emotions.
Jennifer L. Armentrout is a truly amazing and talented author, and she has never ceased to hook me in and make me fall in love with the world, storyline, and characters she has created. I love her hilarious, creative mind and writing style. No matter what she writes, she always makes things interesting and entertaining to read, and that is why she is – and always will be – one of my top favorite authors. I am absolutely in love with the Titan series, and honestly cannot wait to get my hands on “The Struggle” next year!
