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…

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.

The Struggle by Jennifer L Armentrout is the third book in the Titan series, and starts off right when the second book ends, with Seth leaving Josie behind with the others after escaping confinement, and struggling with his new found powers, and Josie, upset that Seth has left her ... again. The Struggle is action packed from the first page, to the last, so buckle up, book nerds!


Holy. Crap. This book was absolutely insane. So much happens, and every single thing seems to be building to an epic conclusion in the next book. The story sucks you in right away, and while one little thing was predictable, I think it was meant to be. If you read the book, you know what I'm talking about. Hint: it happens at the first of the book, and the consequences are found out two thirds of the way in. That's not a bad thing though. It made me keep reading well past the point where I should have been in bed. The Struggle continues the series' trend of being original, well-written, and an exciting read.


One of the best parts of The Struggle; despite EVERYTHING that happens, these characters don't lose their fundamental character traits. Jennifer Armentrout does an amazing job keeping all of these characters consistent. Everything that happens with Seth, he is still Seth. He is changed in the way where he tries harder to be a good guy. He is changed because he now loves someone more than himself. He is changed because of what he becomes. But he is still Seth. Reckless. Passionate. Dark and twisty. Josie still holds true to most of her mortal values, but she will still fight and protect herself and others, something she wasn't sure she could do at the first of the series. She goes through SO much in this book, physically, and emotionally, but she is still herself. Stronger than she knows, brave, and Seth's calm in the storm. I'm obsessed with their relationship with one another. Seth's love for Josie is probably the only thing that is 100% pure, and the moments when he is vulnerable with her add depths to a rather harsh character. Josie's understanding nature, and her acceptance of Seth's dark side, his flaws, is amazing. We get the bad boy Seth we love, and the softer side we didn't get enough of in the Covenant series. The big reveal in this book is what I predicted, but boy, was I happy! It means big things for this series' star couple.


Out of our side characters, the two to shine in The Struggle was Alex and Aiden. We get a hint of their current struggle (which I don't want to spoil for you), and boy do I want a happy ending for them. We don't get too much of Luke and Deacon, Marcus, or Apollo. We get some new characters in the mix (mostly Titans), and the people that live in and around Seth's family home. The Titan's are obviously evil, but I get a weird feeling about those around Seth's home. I don't know. We'll see. Apollo is probably the one character I am flummoxed by. AHHH! Apollo
