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.

 
 
 
 
Oh man! I am just so into this series you guys! I didn't want The Power to end! And I am now DYING for The Struggle! I just love being with these characters and this world!
 
Josie and Seth are back in the second installment of the Titan series, and I just loved them together. They complement each other so well and I absolutely love how much they would sacrifice for the other. It also hurt my heart and I felt myself gutted for awhile, but thankfully JLA didn't leave me in despair for TOO long! Seth is still struggling with his feelings of not being good enough for Josie, as well as his fear that he will destroy her, which is why he pulls what he does. I get his fears, but I do wish he would have talked it out with Josie, instead of making her feel the way he did. She just has so much kindness and compassion in her and I hated seeing her light snuffed out. However, Seth really doesn't WANT to stay away from her, which leads to some very sexy times between them. If you thought the first book was hot, JUST. YOU. WAIT!
 
Seth is really struggling in this book with the darkness inside and it was hard seeing him so torn over it. He doesn't want to hurt the people he loves, but the temptation to feed off Josie's aether is quite palpable and I was really afraid for these two. I do love how Josie refuses to believe that Seth is only darkness. She believes in him, in his goodness, and that just gave me all the warm and fuzzies. Again- their balance is so wonderful and is what will get them through even the most difficult of trials.
 
We do see some familiar faces from the Covenant series and I really enjoyed seeing that addition to the story and how that would all play out. There was some tension and jealousy at first, but it soon led to a group dynamic that I really enjoyed. Things won't ever be perfect because of Seth's past, but at least everyone can function as a team to achieve the greater goal.
 
There were some surprises along the way that I didn't see coming and the situation between the halfs and pures has escalated to a point where shit has gotten real. I am so excited to meet back up with my beloved characters and watch them continue to navigate against all the odds that are stacked against them.

The Return (Titan Series #1)
Spencer Hill Press
February 16th, 2015
New Adult Paranormal

The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.
