A bloody path has been chosen…
The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs.
The Great War fought by the few is coming…
All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people.
In the end, the sun will fall…
The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same.
For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in…
The Struggle is the third book in the Titan series and I just loved getting to reenter this amazing world. Ahhhhh this book was just so good I just didn’t want to put it down. I was just drawn back into the wonderful world with Josie and Seth. I just loved getting to see more of their journey and I was just entranced with everything that was going. I was just on the edge of my seat trying to see what would happen next. This series just keeps getting better and better. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.
Emotional and wonderful!
The struggle is real people! Oh yes, when I finished this book there was a mighty struggle! I HAVE TO WAIT A YEAR TO FIND OUT HOW THIS PLAYS OUT?! Say what?
It's not a cliffhanger so much as revelation of things to come. One that makes you scream! Then pretend to throw your reading device (but then pet your iPad because you love it too much to throw). And finally, cry because you know you have to WAIT to find out how this brilliant author is going to figure out the mess the characters are in. *sigh*
Obviously, I love the characters. I re-read books one and two right before I read this one and I laughed so much. I adore Seth. Anyone who looks down on him, judges him or thinks he's not good enough for Josie is gonna have to go through ME. So sometimes that's even Seth. He needs to have his own behind kicked a few times. I love that he feels bad for the bad choices he's made in the past. I adore that he tries hard to do the right thing now. I want to kick his behind when he still makes the wrong choice. But I so want to snuggle him. He needs it. And he so loves to snuggle. He loves Josie with all his heart and he's willing to do anything to protect her. Talk about some character development. I thought he'd come a long way in The Covenant series. He's made even more progress (and I do mean growth here) in this book. This book was just as enlightening to the series as Deity was to The Covenant series. And Seth is at the center of that.
Now Josie is the heart of the book, as well she should be. Her struggle is very hard on her. And she's so strong. Who would have thought this girl that couldn't fight and thought she was going to college for Psychology just a short time ago could have come so far. She is a force to be reckoned with and I'm so proud of her. Her strength is not always about the fight but about the will. And her ability to stand up to Seth? Legendary! So strong this girl is.
I so enjoyed seeing Alex and Aiden some more. Deacon and Luke were so much fun to have around. I love that the characters are all dear friends that I feel like I know and would love to spend time with. It's nice to see them happy as couples. And there is another character I loved so much from The Covenant series that makes an appearance in this one. I screamed when he showed up. Makes me smile.
What about the story? Talk about tear my heart out of my chest story! Some books I read straight threw and some books I must pace. This one is the latter. I needed time for my heart to deal with the emotions that this books stirred in me. But it called to me every time I put it down. It was back in my hands the next day. And I was cheering for these two. Hoping. Praying.
Story? Double check.
It's just so good, guys! The emotions, the scary Titans, the struggle to find things, the need to fix things - it's all so brilliantly woven into an emotional story that both satisfies and has you longing for more. I want the rest. I want book four. I want to sit and read all four books in order as I drink up every drop of this series. Of Seth. Of Josie. And I know in my heart that I love every last moment of it!
If you've read the rest, you'll want this too. If you haven't read the rest, what are you waiting for???
Seth and Josie are Great!
I've always found Seth super interesting and hilarious and that's still the case after reading The Struggle. He goes through a lot in this book, but it all makes him a better man in the end. We all know he doesn't always make the smartest decisions, but he's learning and realizing what and who really matter to him. Josie is still a sweet girl who doesn't deserve the bad things that happen to her, but she's a fighter. I love how she can always go toe to toe with Seth. I also love the side of Seth she brings out in him. The "Army of Awesome" is what makes these books. I love all of them and their relationships with one another. They are all hilarious yet tough as nails. Alex and Aiden are always going to be my favorites so anytime they are included makes me happy. The storyline was good, definitely had some things in it that came as a surprise to me. The pop culture references that JLA includes always make me smile, especially the Supernatural ones. I have no clue how everything is going to play out in the final book of the Titan series, but I can't wait till next year to read it and find out!
