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.

My Review:

Yesterday I helped reveal the cover for The Power, Book 2 in the Titan Series, so I felt it was fitting to post my review of The Return today.

I was on a countdown for this book and I often find where I’m anxiously anticipating something it doesn’t live up to my expectation. Thankfully, in the case of The Return, it did.

I loved how JLA wrapped up Sentinel for Alex & Aiden, but was heartsick for Seth, so this book was the perfect remedy.

Seth has undoubtedly been affected by the choices he has made over the course of the last couple of years. The burden weighs heavy on his shoulders. Enter Josie, daughter of Apollo, and things start to get interesting. She shares some physical and personality traits with Alex and Seth is floored at the start. However, as they get to know one another he begins to develop feelings for her, in a way he has never felt before. Seth continues to harbor horrific guilt over Alex, so much so that he often finds it difficult to even say her name. I really felt for the guy.

One of the reasons why I loved the Covenent series so much was Jennifer’s ability to seamlessly blend action, adventure, and romance. The Return was a little light on the action in the first half, and I would have liked a little more. That said, it didn’t dent my enjoyment.

I loved the fact that Deacon, Luke, Apollo and Marcus all feature in this book. It was so great to catch up with some of my favorite characters.

The writing, as usual, is sublime. 

An excellent read – for fans of the Covenent series, or as a standalone series. My only problem now is this: I NEED THE NEXT BOOK!!

  1. I still haven’t finished the Convenant series. I read the first 3 books I think and really enjoyed them and I even own the fourth book. I should finish it soon. It’s nice to hear that some characters from the Convenant series, make an appearances here as well. That’s one of the things I like spinn-offs, getting a new story and focus, but now and then still hear about the characters form the first series as well.

  2. OMG, I don’t know how you could read the first 3 books and not read Apollyon and Sentinel!! I literally read this entire series back to back in less than a week and every book was exceptionally brilliant. You have to finish the series!

    I love it when familiar characters show up and Jennifer has been quoted as saying that Alex and Aiden make an appearance in The Power (Titan #2) so I can’t wait to read it!
