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.
It's no surprise to anyone who knows me how much of an enormous JLA fan. Ever since I read her debut book back in 2011 I have been obsessed. The Covenant Series is my personal favourite. I loved the characters, the action and the mythology. So to have the spin off as an older New Adult series I was excited and I adored the first one in this spin off Titan series. The Return blew me away and made me fall in love with Seth. Something that I thought I would never do back when I was reading the covenant series and totally hating on him. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the second book in the series and read some more about Seth and Josie. The Power did not disappoint. It was everything I wanted and more.
The Power was such a stunning book. It picked up right where it left off with Josie having unleashed her Demigod powers and training to be able to use them with Seth. Josie is without a doubt one of my all time favourite characters. I love that she is kick-ass but in a totally different way to Alex. She isn't tough all the time but that gives her her own unique way of being strong and I love that. Seth is... Seth! He is everything that I loved about him in the last book and more. He made some mistakes but lets face it it would be a very boring book if he didn't.
There were certain things about the book that I didn't like. There were some things happening that I felt were just too typical and obvious that happen in so many second books in the series that irritated me a little bit because I feel like it's about time some authors strayed from that rather than following the norm of what always happens. Other than that one little pet peeve this book was absolutely amazing. I loved every moment of it.
The Power was everything that I could have wanted in a book. It made me laugh and swoon and fall head over heels in love with the characters and the story. It also broke my heart into a million pieces with the ending. Jen... I love you but why do you repeatedly do this to me. I am dying to get my hands on the third book in this series. I seriously need it right now. If you haven't read this series yet what the hell are you waiting for? You need to go and get it right now. It's stunning, beautiful and one of the best wrote books I've read in a long time. I loved every moment of it.
