She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and now he is hunting her. And this time he won’t rest until Rose joins him… forever. (Goodreads Excerpt)
Well I have to admit that I am in love with this series. It is truly amazing. I fell in love with Dimitri and was devastated at the end of the last book. I was on the fence about what I wanted to happen. I so wanted Rose and Dimitri to be together, but the price was pretty high. I honestly couldn’t say if I would have chosen the way she did. The ending was…well I won’t give it away.
I was then wrenched into this new book with a twist in fate and had my heart squished again in anguish! I love how Richelle is able to do that. You get so engrossed in the characters that you feel the pain they feel and you’re gripped with the story so hard you don’t want to let go or put down the book.
Again with a series I don’t want to give away the last books but suffice it to say this whole series is gripping from beginning to end with lots of action, intrigue and romance to keep you on the edge of your seat holding the pages tighter and tighter!
Amazing! 5 stars for me! Can’t wait to read the final book!
The Return (Titan #1 by Jennifer Armentrout. Published Feb 16, 2015 by Spencer Hill Press. CDN $5.63 Kindle edition
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. (Goodreads Excerpt)
Well what to say…HOLY CRAP! I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. I absolutely adored the covenant series and was sad when it ended. I don’t normally like love triangles but I did enjoy Seth in the covenant as an intent…and a bit psychotic love interest/tangled mess. So it was really cool to see him have a book of his own. I have to say this Seth is much more…intense…and a little (just a little) psychotic!
True to Jennifer’s style I love her characters and her worlds and can’t put anything down that she writes. I like that this is a spin off that picks up a bit after the last covenant ends. It makes it easy to sink into the plot and delve into Seth’s mind and his perspective.
Did I say he was HOT?! Oh yeah he is…and I love the connection with Josie who is sweet and innocent and Seth has to calm the F down and figure out how to protect her. I do love how she comes into her own and turns into quite the little spirited aggressive one all on her own. She is a tough girl on the inside and the story brings it out. I am a big fan of two POV so this was right up my alley.
Really enjoyable and can’t wait for the next book. 5 stars for me!
