Apollyon Seth

The power (Titan #2) av Jennifer L. Armentrout

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.

För er som gillade serien Covenant så får ni inte missa avstickare Titan som handlar om Seth Apollyon som hade en lite fling med Alex och gick lite over the board i Covenant-böckerna och Demigod Josie, som Seth ska hjälpa bemästra hennes nyfunna krafter.

Jag gillade första boken i denna trilogin väldigt mycket, men jag tycker inte riktigt att denna var i klass men första boken. Men så brukar det ofta vara med mellanböcker. Jag blev lite smått frustrerad på Seths envishet och att han hela tiden ska skjuta undan allt som är bra för honom. Jag hade stunder så jag hade kunnat ruska om honom. Boken i sig var spännande och lite kul att få följa med på jakten efter de andra demigudarna och se vilka dem är. Och Hercules... vad säger man om honom.

“I had to prove that what he believed wasn't true. Prove that he was the total of everything he had done and not the dark things he was ashamed of, and I would do so because I loved him and accepted him for who he was, for all his faults. That was what love meant. Love fostered courage.” 

Boken får betyg 7 av 10
