Book Review: The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Synopsis from GoodReads:

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.

Book 1 in the new adult paranormal TITAN series, spin-off to the best selling COVENANT series.

My Review:

I waited for this book for so long, and I can honestly say I was not disappointed in the slightest. This book is nothing short of phenomenal, and a wonderful spin off from the Covenant Novels. I am so happy that Seth finally got his own book and POV.

After everything he went through, I am so happy for where he is now. I couldn’t be more proud. I love his character and he is ultimately joint first-with one other-as my favourite. To see him finally have something that resembles hope, a life and something he deserves, made me smile so much. Though at the same time it broke me down in tears of happiness. After all this time he deserves what he has come across in this book, and I can tell he won’t give up on what’s going to come in the future. He’s sticking with her, and everything else that comes along, like glue.

As for Josie, the new character, I don’t have a bad word for her. She is a character that I have well and truly connected with on a whole other level. She is so much like me, in how she thinks and deals with others, as well as the problems and situations she faces. I like that she sees past everything bad, and logically sees the best. She’s an amazing character.

It was great to see old faces too, like Deacon, Luke, Marcus, Solos, Apollo..
Speaking of the latter, that man/god/annoyance-well I have a whole new sense of respect for him, and he turned my emotions all to goo. I am very proud of this guy, especially for what he says to a certain someone.

It was great to see the Titans in this one, and I really look forward to more books in this series. I want to see more Titans other that Hyperion. (By the way, he is such a dickhead. Let’s just beat him up with frying pans.) I want to see what’s crack-a-lacking with Perses while he’s topside.

Also, it’d be brilliant to see an appearance of Alex and Aiden. Even though they just went back down to the Underworld.

All in all though, this is a book I could pick up and read time and time again. No words can express how much this book means to me, so I’m not even going to try! 🙂

My Rating:

***** 5/5 stars (I’d give it more if I could!)
