#BookReview: The Power (Titans 2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout (@JLArmentrout)

Purchase: Amazon // B&N // Book Depository

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

So long… so long until I read The Power by Jennifer L. Armentrout, spin-off of the Covenant series. Once more the world face the threat of the Greek Mythology, this time by the hand of the Titans, and Josie, Seth and the Army of Awesome are back together to stop them. I was so happy to have new and old characters back and an amazing new book to devour.

That’s exactly what I did, I devour this book in instant. I was so hooked with all the emotions, because this book has more emotions that the previous one. I believe that I like this more than The Return; I think that my previous holds back about the story and how this would improve disappear from the moment I started to see how much Seth has changed and how much he cares about Josie.

I just love how Seth tries to prevent to make the same mistakes all over again and protect Josie, even she’s very capable to protected herself. Also, I like how much Josie didn’t break down after her emotional problems, I mean, she cried, she lock herself for several days but she released that she needs to fight back and collect herself up. She has a job and no matter how hard is going to be, she still need to be able to do it because she’s the only one who can. Again, I prize how she was realistic on her reactions but really emotional strong; Jen did a great work creating her.

Other thing I really enjoy was that, this is a hold back from the previous one. The Return is full of action but this, even when we have fights in the last part, was more an emotional rollercoaster than an action one and I’m glad this was the case. I think that presenting action and emotions as strong as it was here together would left us unbalance, I believe that it has the perfect amount of them.

“We’re wearing the same shirt,” he pointed out with a smirk.

“Except I’m wearing it better,” I remarked.

Josie made a soft choking sound as the demigod tilted his head to the side, expression perplexed. “That’s not possible. You do not have the body that I do. I’m a ten.”

I stared at him, brow rising. “Are you for real?”

“Am I not standing here?”

In conclusion, this book was really funny, perfect and even overcoming The Return. It’s very uncommon of me to say it but I like this more than the first book of the series; I think that Jenn made a wonderful job presenting us a funny book, well thought characters, awesome twist and an engaging read.
