4.5 “Oh my gods” stars

Book #3 in the Titan series, this book is full of the action, humour, romance and paranormal awesomeness that I love so much about this series. It’s a fast-paced, exciting ride with moments that made my heart ache and some pretty big shocks, but it’s mostly a whole lot of fun, and I absolutely loved it!

This book continues Seth and Josie’s story as they continue their quest to track down the remainder of the unknown demi-gods (who have no idea of who they really are), so that they can band together to take down the evil titans. There’s pretty much nothing more I can say about the story that won’t be a spoiler for this book, or the earlier books in the series, so I’ll keep this review vague – but make sure you’ve read the previous books, because the series is one continuous story and this one seems to be a turning point which some big twists and reveals, and it’s one exciting ride!

“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.”

If you don’t remember what went down in the final few chapters of the last book (The Power), I suggest a reread, because this one picks up immediately after all of that action and dives straight into a whole heap of new-but-related action, and I was sucked right back into the excitement of the world

Both Seth and Josie have intense individual storylines in this book, and there are some massive changes for them which have a huge impact on the overall story. I loved watching the way they handle all that they go through, and the resulting changes. It’s quite dark in places, but JLA has a sensationally sarcastic sense of humour that she has written into her characters, and it provides a great balance for the intensity of the story.

“Zombies are all fun and games until they’re standing right in front of you.”

There are ups and downs, terror and torment, but there are also some epic ass-kicking moments, laugh-out-loud banter and inner monologue, and a gorgeous, gorgeous romance which was sweet, sexy and all kinds of swoony.

Seth and Josie are turning into quite the powerhouse couple. They have issues they need to deal with, and I’ve got to hand it to Josie, because the strength she shows in both standing up for herself, and being there for Seth was fantastic to see.

Loving him meant that I knew from the first moment that I fell for Seth that he was complicated – that loving him wouldn’t be easy. Loving him…Well, it meant that I was willing to fight for him.

But most of all, I love how they are growing and changing together, and I love their commitment to each other as they stand together to face everything that is coming their way.

“I’m not leaving you. We’re in this together, Josie … If there is anything in this world, there is us.”

With the story taking place in the Covenant/Titan series world, there are lots of fantastic cameos, and I particularly loved that we got to see so much of Alex and Aiden. Deacon is a hilarious highlight as always, and there are some surprise appearances and new characters that I really enjoyed.

I loved this book. It was everything I was hoping it would be, and is a real game changer. I’m so excited to see where the series goes from here.

4.5 stars!
