REVIEW~ The Power by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Power (Tital #2)
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.

The Power is Book #2 in the Titan series.  This particular series is also a spin-off to The Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout and I would recommend you read that series first because it will give you the background of Seth and also because it is just that FANTASTIC!!!. It is dual point of view from Seth and Josie.

Have you ever been so engrossed in a book that the end took you by surprise?? Well this is exactly what happened to me with this book.  I absolutely love the character development in the book, for both Josie and Seth. There are so many layers to our lovely Sethie and I don't think we have even seen half of them but I do feel that if anyone can peel them all back it will be Josie.  She has really proven herself in this book, managing to show her vulnerable side while also being strong in the face of some terrible tragedies. 

Seth really shows his true colours in this book and I loved it. I did not like Seth in The Covenant series, I just felt like he was a complete arse, too cocky and full of himself and well this book changed that for me. The second half of this book was defiantly my favorite with the return of Alex and Aiden and just having the whole group back together. Deacon, Luke, Solos and Marcus and some new additions of Colin and Gable (whom I hope to see alot more of in future books).  Seth tries to put up a front of not caring but you can tell that he likes to have them all around again.

Jennifer L. Armentrout has managed to do it again with another book that will defiantly be added to my bookshelf soon.  It doesn't seem to matter what she writes it all turns out to be gold. This romance is HOT, it reads at the perfect pace with hilarious dialogue between all the characters and manages to be heart breaking.  I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
