The Power (Titan, #2) by Jennifer L Armentrout ~ Review

Source:  Received an ARC copy from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

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.

Available 2/23/16 from Spencer Hill


I wasn't expecting this ARC.  My husband looked at me strangely when I opened the package and started screaming.  Needless to say, I opened it quickly.  What an incredible read.

No book two slump for The Power!  This book turns up the intensity on the Titan series. 

Seth shines in all his glory in this book.  His snarky comments, his sexy looks (he cuts his hair!), his awesome skills, and his cuddle ways are all there!  I so enjoyed spending time with him.

And the story is a journey of twists and turns.  Oh, the secrets are there.  And when Seth discovers what the Gods have not told him, yeah it all hits the fan.  My need for book three is a hard and coursing NEED in me!

My heart breaks for the lose in this book.  Oh yes, there is lose.  But there are also giggles, swoons and old friends.  I adored seeing Aiden and Alex again.  LOVE them so much.  I did want to slap them at one point but it was quickly fixed.  

The characters of this world are dear friends and I enjoy spending time here.  It's interesting to watch the social issues that arise as a result of the removal of the breed order.  It mirrors our own world and makes it clear (if anyone needed clarification) of the right and wrong of it.  I have always loved that aspect of the Covenant series and now this spin-off.  

Of course, the writing is excellent.  I love JLA books.  They are my kind of drug and I am happily addicted.

If you have read The Return, you will want this book the day it comes out.  If you haven't read The Return, get on it.  Be ready.  Be ready for more Seth, more Josie, more perfection.
