The Power by Jennifer L. Armentrout

“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.”

-Synopsis from Goodreads

I’m so so so sorry we haven’t posted in awhile.We’ve been so busy with school, but I wanted to do this before I became even more busy. I finished this book at the beginning of last week and this author just makes my life.

Anyway, first of all if you haven’t read the Covenant series by this author, you need to read that first. We’ll do a review on that whenever one of us rereads it. This book is the sequel to The Return. And Seth is just perfection.

Seth is basically a hot, powerful being that can control five elements and has a lot of emotional past that comes from the Covenant series. This story revolves around  the Greek Gods but is very different from Percy Jackson and the Olympians though. Anyway,Seth has to take care of a girl named Josie who is a demigod, but Seth falls in love with her.

That’s all I’m going to tell you. This book is so amazing and for sure worth the read. I just love Sethie so much even though I hated him in Covenant series. I think you just get to know Seth so much better in this and realize that he has real emotions.

I would recommend this book to ages 16 & 17 because it does have very mature material. Covenant series you should also check out, but I would recommend that to 14-year-olds. This author just writes material that sticks with you.
