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.
I was really eager to get to this book, because I missed the characters and the world that Jennifer L. Armentrout has created. But I had no idea what an emotional rollercoaster this book would be.
We get action, humor, suspense, sexy and heartbreaking in one hell of a ride in this book.
Of course all that with our favorite characters that I missed so much. Of course there is Seth and Josie, but also Deacon, Luke and Solos and occasional we get to see Apollo again. Plus we get to see Alex and Aiden again, which I will get to later.
We also meet some very interesting new people along the way including one very hilarious demigod that everyone seems to hate.
Seth, in this book drove me nuts, I loved him than I wanted to strangle him a few minutes later, just as much I felt his pain and wanted to hug him and tell him everything will be okay. My heart broke for him a few times in this book as he struggles with his past but also the present. It is very clear that he loves Josie very much but is it enough for him to overcome his issue. I really liked that we get to see different side of him in this book.
Josie, has quite come the long way considering that she knew nothing of the world she now lives in. She becoming stronger every day and stands up for what she believes in and is right including Seth. But she also does what she has to when things get ugly. She also trying to deal with her father in this book and being homesick. She has some very strong but also some weak moments, but I loved that it made her even more real.
Of course Deacon, Luke and Solos also play a pretty good part in this book, whether it is fighting, training or just being there for the rest of the gang. Alex and Aiden return I was curios how that would play out, but I thought it was very well done. Didn’t take away from Seth and Josie but yet fit in very nicely.
Overall, awesome book we learn some new things and other things are answered. There is a ton of action happening, in the bedroom or otherwise, but there are also quite the few heartbreaking moments in the book and of course we are left with a cliffhanger.
I thought this book was even better than the first one and that was already great. I cannot wait to see how it continues and will work out for all of them.
I rate it at 5★
Some of my favorite quotes
“ I totally get that I need to be better at this, but I’m trying. I’m doing my best didn’t have years and years of training. I’ve had months, so excuse you if I get a little distracted by the random eagle or boob-shaped clouds.”
He finally looked away from her, and that was a good thing, because I was beginning to think those blue eyes would look excellent on the ground, lying among the damn peonies.
My father put the “who” in whore.
“Really?” she said dryly, eyeing me with a smirk. You’re going to fight with the awesomeness of your six-pack as a weapon?”
I arched a brow. “Yeah. You know, I was going to test out the whole abs of steel theory thing. The gun attached to my thigh and the daggers in my hands are just props. Mainly for show. Don’t want to take away from the gloriousness that is my body, though.” Her smirk flipped into a grin. “Whatever.”
“I thought you were killed?”
“By that little punk bitch? Perseus? Please?” Medusa laughed.
“He couldn’t fight his way out of a pack of declawed kittens without his daddy Zeus stepping in.”
