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.
The Greek gods engage in modern-day power struggles in the solid inaugural installment of the Titan new adult paranormal romance series. Seth, an otherworld/human hybrid introduced in Armentrout's well-received Covenant YA series, bears a heavy burden of guilt over his past treacherous acts. He redeems himself by becoming Apollo's judge and jury, meting out bloody justice to traitorous lesser gods and mortals. Far more of a challenge is his new assignment: guarding Apollo's part-human daughter Josie, who needs to get up to speed on the doings of the deities about which she knows nothing so she can battle the bloodthirsty Titans. As Seth learns to restrain his violent instincts and Josie trains hers up, the romance and danger both escalate at a feverish pace. Armentrout dives deep into the psyches of both hero and heroine, deftly switching from one point of view to another, while creating a drum-tight sense of suspense and sexual tension from the first page to the last. This is a very promising start to the series.
The Return is the first book in the Titan series and this was just a great way to start off a series. This series is centered around the same world as the Covenant series so you get to see some familiar characters that crossover such as this series main character is Seth who you’ve previously met if you read the other series. I am just so glad that Seth is finally getting his own series. I just didn’t want to see his story end and I just loved getting go along for the ride and see him meet Josie. I just had so much fun and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
But wait! There’s more!
Seth’s story continues (thankfully). Admittedly, my heart went out to him during the previous series. The misguided misfit…Who also happened to be super sexy! This is just book one, and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this series. Armentrout has a fun style of writing and you can tell she’s evolved from her young adult series into her more sensual, grown up adult series. Never stop writing Jennifer!!
Seth is so entertaining!
I really liked this book. Seth is such and entertaining character to read about; he really is a hoot! I enjoyed Josie, but not nearly as much as Seth. I thought it was a very good storyline. I enjoyed getting to read from Seth's perspective since we never got to hear his side in the Covenant series, especially since all of what happened in those books has really changed him as a person.
