[Book Review] The Prophecy by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Synopsis

History is on repeat…

Seth never thought he’d have a future. But now he’s on the brink of having it all with Josie: A tomorrow. A family. A forever. And all that’s standing between him and that forever is the Titans. If he helps Josie entomb them — without killing them, a nearly impossible task for him — everything he could ever want will be in reach. But he soon realizes that as a god, every little choice he makes can reshape the world for the better… or worse. And in meddling with the Titans, Seth may have just set into motion catastrophic consequences that will force the Olympians to enter the mortal realm and reshape the delicate balance of power that keeps the world from total collapse.

A price must be paid…

Entombing the Titans is Josie’s top priority. After all, it was what she was born to do. But the plans her father put into play to help her are no longer an option, and the odds she and Seth face in forging their own path are grim. The escalating violence between halfs and pures only increases the danger closing in on them and their friends. Josie knows their chances of succeeding in their task are slim at best — and if they fail, they might lose everything. But she also knows she’s not fighting just for herself — she’s fighting for the man she loves, for their future, for the world. Together with the Army of Awesome, Josie and Seth will face the unthinkable. And to win this war, the ultimate sacrifice must be made.

For the end is here and the Prophecy will be fulfilled….

Review

I still can’t believe this but I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!!

Seth almost has it all, but the Titans are still on the lose entombing them and finding the last demigod is everyone’s top priority. With time and options running out Seth must make a sacrifice that no one sees’s coming.

Ok, I was not prepared at all for the rollercoaster of emotions that this story made me feel. I’ve been waiting almost a year to read this book and it had everything and more that  I wanted.

Seth and Josie are so perfect for one another, I loved how protective and loving Seth was of her and their unborn child, he has grown so much over the course of this series and it this book really rounded his character off in such a beautiful way. Seth really has come full circle and reading his journey has been such a ride! I liked how Josie never gave up on Seth, her belief in him never wavered and she reinforced his self-worth every time he doubted himself. They are total #RelationshipGoals!

The story itself has everything you would come to expect from the genius that is Jennifer L. Armentrout, humor, drama, smoking hot sexiness and sooo many feels! JLA has crafted the perfect ending to this amazing series.

The Struggle (Titan #3) – Jennifer L. Armentrout

*Major spoilers ahead!*

Blurb

 A bloody path has been chosen…

The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs.

The Great War fought by the few is coming…

All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people.

In the end, the sun will fall…

The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same.

For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in…

Overview

I loved it!! I’m so hooked to this series! I discovered after devouring this book that there is going to be fourth! (thank the gods!)

I’m going to review this a bit differently as I’ve already done character analysis in the last two reviews and I don’t want it to become repetitive. So I’m just going to go through and tell you what loved and didn’t love so much because let’s be honest I didn’t hate anything about this book!

What I loved:

  • Seth is a freaking GOD now! I thought after the last book he would just be the god killer but no he’s a legit god who is absolute, meaning that there are only a few gods that could take him down. It also means he is no longer destined to be Hades bitch as he is now immortal!
  • It finally seems as though  Seth ahs come to his senses and has committed to Josie! Hooray!
  • Josie is pregnant! Holy daimen babies I cannot wait to find out just how powerful their child is going to be!
  • Seth DESTROYING Titans!
  • All the references to Supernatural

This book gave me so many feels I can’t even tell you!

What could have been better:

  • I would like to have seen more of the new demigods that had been found.

 Favorite Quote:

The Struggle

Conclusion:

This installment is the best one yet! I highly recommend! My rating 5/5

The Power – Jennifer L. Armentrout

Blurb

 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.

Story: 

This book picks right up from where The Return finished. It’s also dual perspective. This book sees the return of Alex and Aiden (Yes!)  and we are also introduced to a couple of new characters; Hercules (Yes the Hercules!)  and a second Demigod Gable who is Poseidon’s son.

I really liked how this story played out, I thought that bringing Alex back in particular was a stroke of genius! I definitely recommend you read the Covenant series before you start this one as it will give you a full back story.

Characters

Seth’s struggle with his pull to aether takes up a large part of this story. He even goes as far as breaking things off with Josie because he feels he can’t control himself around her. The thing that I most like about Seth is that he still see’s himself as this big bad guy who deserves bad things to happen to him because of some mistakes he has made in his past, but then he does really selfless things and your like hang on a minute this guy isn’t as bad as he is making himself out to be and I think this is what makes him quite endearing.

Josie really grew in this story, I like what a badass she is starting to become! Particularly towards the end when she stood up to Alex and Aiden and defended Seth. I like that she sees passed Seth facade, in her words she see’s him as a whole person, not just his mistakes.

I would like to make a special mention for Hercules! He manages to irritate almost everyone apart from Deacon, at one point Seth refers him as “Herc-The-Dickface” 😆 and for me, these passages were a highlight of the story!

Conclusion:

Overall this was a really enjoyable installment and well worth the 6-month wait to read!  I cannot wait to read The Struggle! My Rating: 4/5

The Return (Titan #1) – Jennifer L. Armentrout

Blurb

The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.

Story:

Technically this is a re-read! but as its only, my second read I’m just gonna roll with. The first time I read this was last summer. I have chosen to re-read it now because the 3rd book is out next week! and because of this, I haven’t read the 2nd book either so I’m planning on reading that next in preparation!

Anyway back to this book. This book is a spin-off from the Covenant Series and is set after all the events that happen in this series. I wasn’t a huge Seth fan when I read that series so I was intrigued to see what this one was about.

This story is told in the first person and from both Seth and Josie’s point of view, the flow of the story is good I really liked the transition between the two characters dialogues.

I really liked the storyline and the chemistry between Seth and Josie is off the charts! I don’t know how she does it but Jennifer L. Armentrout always manages to create characters that are dripping with sex appeal and Seth is sex personified! I had no problems imagining his smoking hotness!

 

Characters:

Seth really grows in this book, I definitely had more empathy reading about him from his perspective and I can now say I’m a huge fan of his. I really hope he gets his happy ending.

I really liked Josie’s character, she is emotionally strong and takes everything in her stride. I also liked that she accepted all of Seth’s mistakes and saw passed them to the person he really is.

 

Conclusion:

It’s pretty obvious that I really liked this book, as it is a re-read and I’m planning on reading The Power next. My rating: 4/5
