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.
This book, oh man, this book! It was so fantastic, so amazing, such a great sequel! It was just a touch hard to remember what happened in The Return, but it mostly came back as I was reading this book! So fantastic!
The relationship between Josie and Seth was a bit of a roller coaster in this book! All the ups and downs, the twists and turns, and the feels! So great, and yeah, the awkwardness of her dad, the warnings that the Librarian (and who she turned out to be!) was just so fantastic to read!
This is the book where Alex and Aiden came back! And it was glorious! It was so fantastic to read about Josie meeting them, and her watching Seth interact with them, because as you can imagine, that was really interesting to watch!
Then that ending! There were hints of what was to come, but I didn't think it would become as big as it did! So great and scary, and just oh, man, it was an evil cliffhanger! I just want and need more, because it can't end that way!
Loved this book so much, and yeah that the cover and title for the next book, The Struggle!!!
