Seth never thought he’d have a future. Now he’s on the brink of having it all: A tomorrow. A family. All that’s standing in the way of that forever with Josie is the Titans.


For Josie, entombing the Titans is what she was born to do. But she also knows she’s not fighting just for herself — she’s fighting for the man she loves, for their future, for the world. Together, Josie and Seth will face the unthinkable. And to win this war, the ultimate sacrifice must be made.

The Prophecy by Jennifer L Armentrout is the fourth, and final book in the Titan series. As with the previous three, we have two narrators: Josie, a demigod, who is charged with the task of entombing the escaped Titans, while pregnant, and Seth, the god of life and death, who not only is trying his best to keep Josie out of the fight, but is also preparing to be a father his child can be proud of.

Holy. Daimon balls.

I had to say that at least once.

The Prophecy was everything you want in a final book of a series. The action started right away, and built to a very climatic end. Fun fact: 3 hours later, and my face is still puffy and blotched from the amount of BAWLING I did. Not only did The Prophecy keep me entertained (I couldn't put it down), but it left me emotionally hung over. One of the things I enjoyed, was how surprised I was throughout the book. I had my predictions, and none of them panned out. None.

Holy redemption arc! I was one of those readers of the Covenant series who always felt Seth wasn't the villain. Well ... I mean, that's obvious at the end of the series, but he did some terrible things. I always had hope for him though. While I loved what he did for Aiden and Alex, I hated it for him. This series might have been called the Titan series, but the real story here, is Seth's arc. Jennifer wrote Seth's arc in a way that made him worthy of all the good in his life, but still keeping the things we love about Seth the most (like his dry sarcasm, and hell, even his arrogance). And the Seth we get after he meets Josie? Oh. My. God. Don't kill me JLA fans, but he may have bypassed Aiden for me in the whole Aiden vs. Seth argument. If not bypassed, they are pretty equal at the very least. And Josie? What a perfect match for Seth. She has gone through a significant change over the last year (hard to imagine these books span a year), going from mortal, to a demigod who has mastered her powers, and is strong, not just physically, but emotionally as well. She went from someone who never even thought about kids, to being a mother. Much like Alex and Aiden are perfect halves that make a whole, Seth and Josie are as well.

Well, that's it for the Titan series. I'm left ... happy for most of our characters, but sad that it's done. In Acknowledgments, I noticed the JLA said that this is the end ... for now, which has me thinking she has more ideas bouncing around in her head. I hope so. I really do. It's hinted that Aiden and Alex have been wanting a child ... does it happen for them? Deacon mentions wanting a child, and Luke said maybe a long time in the future ... will they eventually adopt? And I feel like there is a whole story that could be written about Seth and Josie's child (nope, I will not spoil the gender or name, but I will say, t
