I re-read this book in anticipation for the final book releasing this month. And it was even more amazing the second time around, so I tweaked some stuff in my review. Here it is.......

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.


The Power was emotionally gripping and powerful!  Even though my adrenaline was still running high after those last few scenes, I kept swiping at the tears falling from my eyes.  I couldn’t seem to shake off the heartache, fear, and nervousness that was still thrumming through my veins.  But that’s not all that I was feeling.  The Power captured my heart all over again.  It was hilarious, heartwarming, sexy and extremely addicting.  Seth and Josie’s story is a must read for all paranormal lovers out there!

I didn’t . . . I didn’t deserve this with her.
I didn’t deserve her in general. – Seth

Seth continued to pull at my heartstrings.  He tried so hard to be good,  yet he had this innate ability to tap into the darkest part of himself.  It always seemed to just be a breath away, even with Josie in the picture.  But I didn’t care how dark his demons were.  And I sure didn’t care that he was judged and looked down upon by others.  Because he had the most pure feelings when it came to Josie.  He sent my heart into a tailspin with just the way he protected, cared and touched her.

There would be no room for anything else, because after this—after having her, after knowing that she was mine—there was no way I could stay away from her.
So I would do right by her.
Even if it killed me. – Seth

After how The Return ended, Seth was even more adamant about training Josie in not just hand to hand combat, but in learning to control and use all five of her elements.  The Titans were still out there, and they would try to get their hands on Josie again.  She had to learn to protect herself and be ready to go to war with them in the future.  And just like how Alex and Aiden’s training sessions were sizzling hot, Seth and Josie’s were scorching.

“I know I have the power,” she argued. “Duh.”
I arched a brow. “Yeah, you know you do, but you don’t really believe it or trust yourself.  If you did, you wouldn’t be setting every damn thing on fire every time you get horny.”
Her cheeks flushed pink. “I do not!”
I smirked.
“That was like once or twice.” She threw up her hands. “Okay, maybe four times.  I didn’t this morning.” A light sparked in her eyes. “Then again, maybe that just means you were slacking.”

By that last page, I was so proud with how far Josie had come!  She continued to find her voice while being determined to protect herself and fight right alongside with the others.  And I loved that some of her mannerisms were so relatable.  I mean she loved french fries and saw running as a necessary evil.  Hello, welcome to my life lol.  But again, I found that my favorite thing about Josie was the way she saw Seth.  Her faith and hope in him shined brightly.  She didn’t care about his past and what others thought.  She saw the good in him and believed he deserved his happily ever after, just like every one else does.

I felt bad poaching the dagger from him, but it was heavy and warm in my hand as I forced myself forward, knowing I was making the right choice. I was not a weakness that needed to be hidden away.
I was a mother-freaking demigod. – Josie

And Josie and Seth were surrounded by characters that I loved from The Covenant Series – Luke, Deacon and Solos.  But this time we got a few more additions……  (view spoiler) I loved having them back in the mix.  And seeing them through Seth and Josie’s eyes felt so very different from how we viewed them through the Covenant Series.  Eeks, you must read this!

Pressure increased in my chest and more tears snuck free. They kept falling silently, and I squeezed my eyes shut. By the time exhaustion dragged me under, I wasn’t sure who I was crying for the most. – Josie

So I closed the book in complete awe of my feelings.  While my heart is sad over some things that happened, I can’t deny how elated I still feel!  From that first page I was utterly addicted and so happy to be in a world that feels like home!  The Return and The Power are both books that I can’t wait to pick up and read all over again!

    I have The Return sitting on my bookshelf. Why, oh why, haven’t I read it yet? I love Armentrout and it sounds like this series is right on par with her other books!

      The Return & The Power are definitely on par with her other books! It is completely addicting, and I love how Seth and Josie evolve as the series progresses. I really think you’d have a lot fun reading this….but check out The Covenant Series first if you haven’t met Alex and Aidan. A lot of the characters from that series appear in this one. 🙂

  2. Kim

    I can’t believe I haven’t read anything by her yet. I really need to get cracking.

    • Jen

      I am so addicted to her books! The Covenant Series (which is the series that comes before this one) is a lot of fun. It has Greek mythology, a kick butt heroine, an intoxicating strong male, great friendships, is funny, and a page turner. 🙂

  3. Crystal Olisa

    I’ve been searching the web for people as obsessed with this series as I am so I’m soooo glad to have found this! I’ve literally gone through all the covenant books and both titan books in under a week and it kills me to have to wait an entire freaking year for the next one! Seth can be saved, I know it. He deserves an epic love and I’m soo happy with how it plays out 🙂

    • Jen

      That’s amazing that you got to read all of those books in under a week. I know! *flails around* I can’t believe we have to wait until next February to find out what happens. Our poor Seth! I think he can be saved too. It’s Seth. He always perseveres in the most dire of situations, so he has to continue doing that right?! And Josie is one determined person, so I have lots of hope for what she will be able to accomplish. Ohhh, I heard a rumor that there may be more than 3 books, so we may end up with another cliffhanger next February lol!

      • Crystal Olisa

        The waiting is making me miserable!!! And the thought of waiting yet another year for a fourth one? I don’t think I could handle that lol. I desperately wanted him to have what Alex/Aiden have so he can see how much better something real is, so I hated how miserably Sentinel ended for him. I nearly died when I found out about Titan though lol, and Jose is just perfect for him. And he seems to have his head on straight enough to banish himself to his island so there must be hope!! She’ll find a way to save him (maybe Apollo will come around?) then he’ll ride off into the sunset with his Joe 😊

        • Jen

          Yes! The ending of Sentinel was beyond brutal for Seth! I was jumping up and down when I heard that he was getting his own series. He more than deserves it!
          I’m so torn on a 4th book! Because while the wait is killing me, I also want more Seth & Josie! It seems like they still have so much to do, and I was wondering how they were going to accomplish it all in only one more book. But the wait! *sighs*
          I LOVE Apollo lol! He always cracks me up – when he popped in on Seth and Josie I wanted to die of embarrassment and laugh at the same time! Here’s hoping we get to see more of him in The Struggle!
          I can’t wait to see what happens next, only 10-11 more months to go ack!

    I keep seeing these Titan books everywhere, and it’s so tempting to start reading them! But I don’t think I have the time right now! 😭 hahaha

      If you haven’t read The Covenant Series first, I definitely recommend picking that one up before this. There are so many characters that appear from the Covenant Series in the Titan Series, and knowing their history just adds to the emotions. 🙂

      This is a series I’m so glad I binge read, it was too addicting to pick up another book between these four books. I flew through them so fast and just finished the last book last night. It’s definitely going on my favorite series ever list. I hope you enjoy it when you pick it up!

  5. AngelErin

    I’m so glad you loved this one! Josie and Seth sound like fantastic characters. I have to get to more of her books this year. If I don’t, feel free to slap me. You know via the internet. 😛
