Book Review: The Power (Titan #2) by: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Release Date: February 23, 2016
from Spencer Hill Press
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book 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."


My Thoughts:

We all know I am a huge JLA fan. Her books always seem to work for me and The Power was no exception. I loved The Return and have been anxiously waiting for this one and it delivered. It was a fantastic read that hit me right in the feels and had me in full on fangirl mode.

I have come to love Seth and I love his character growth. It is crazy how far he has come and how much he has matured, but he is still the same Seth we know and love in many ways. He is still sarcastic and snarky and his dialogue cracks me up. He really broke my heart in this one and I’m just not okay.

I also love Josie and I love how she has adapted to this world. She is really coming to terms with her new found abilities and she steps up to the plate. I also love how she fights for Seth and shows him constantly that he is worth something. She is a wonderful character.

I of course loved being back in this world and seeing old friends again. I’m not going to lie, I swooned hard when I saw Alex and Aiden again. I’ve missed them so much. But my favorite is still Deacon. That boy owns my heart and I wish we could be best friends for real. I just love him and his humor and he is such a genuinely good guy.

The Power kept me glued to the pages and was the perfect blend of action and schmexy times. Seth is basically sex on a stick, but he is also a badass ninja and I love that combo. This book hit me right in the feels and I’m not gonna lie, I shed a lot a few tears. I love these characters so much.

The Power was a great follow up to The Return and the wait for book three is going to be agonizing, but I know the wait will be worth it.

  1. I cannot wait to pick this one up! And I have really come to love Seth as well. He has grown so much from the Covenant Series. I also cannot wait to see Alex and Aiden again! Boy do I miss those them :) If this one hit you right in the feels I know I'm going to just love it.

    Amazing review! I need this book!

  2. If her books are low on romance, it would be perfect for me. It's great that you weren't disappointed though. *fist pump*

  3. I had no doubt this would be a win for you -- I'm so happy you loved it. It's that agonizing wait for the next book that has me holding off on this series. Maybe when I can get to it, I'll be able to read them all back to back, and you'll be ready to re-read them with me! Awesome review, wifey cakes! xo

  4. I was kinda holding my breath as I read your first few sentences, Teresa. I don't know why - I should know JLA isn't going to disappoint! I'm so happy you enjoyed Titan. I really must make the time to finish up the Covenant series so I can get to Seth's books. :D

  5. Great review, Teresa. I'm looking forward to reading The Power, and even more so now that I know Alex and Aiden will be making an appearance.
