Review: The Struggle by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Titan, #3)

Add on [goodreads]

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… 

All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people. 

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. 

For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in…

If you haven't read The Return or The Power, you better stop reading this now or you might get some spoilers from the previous books.

Following the previous events from The Power, Seth has left the group to protect them, or to protect Josie at least. He has yet to understand all the powers that come with being the God Killer and he doesn’t want to harm her more than he has. Heading to the only place far enough from her, he will end up learning a lot more about who he has become.

Seth’s character is probably the character that goes through the most changes in this book. He has become something he has yet to understand the extent of its power and he’s struggling a lot with the guilt of what he has done in the past. The last one isn’t new as we have been following Seth since book one and we know this issue isn’t going to solve itself easily, but it’s such a huge part of who he has become. Even if people forgave him, he had yet to reach that kind of level towards himself.

Josie’s character is going to go through a lot in this book too, both physically and mentally. Searching for Seth will end up being a lot more to handle that she probably first anticipated. An old enemy is back and he wants revenge. I will say that I really love Josie because she is genuinely a good person. She wants to protect and help the people she care about, yes, but she’s willing to risk herself to save others too. She’s always been mature, but the way she handles each situation in this book has made me love her more.  The best example is that she is open to accept so much from Seth because she knows that he has so much good in him. She knows who he was and she knows who he is and she isn’t willing to give up on him. Doesn’t mean she has forgotten; it just means she knows that not everything is black and white and that he deserves a chance.

Josie and Seth are both pretty much in a learning curve versus their powers, their love and their future. It isn’t easy with Seth being protective of her and Josie wanting to prove herself and show she can take care of herself. It isn’t easy as the book progress for them to find a compromise to their problems, but they are trying their best.

The Gods as always are always cryptic and have a tendency to keep information to themselves when it could be useful to our little group, but I guess that sometimes Gods just forget that they have to trust the people they asked to save the world.

I was also glad to be reunited again with Alex, Aiden, Deacon and Luke. They are such loyal friends and I feel like Alex and Josie have become even closer in this book and I was really happy about that.

Overall, Jennifer has once again brought us through a rollercoaster of events that will leave you breathless. The ending is not actually a cliff-hanger, but it will leave you begging for the next book to see where the final book in the series will lead our heroes.

I was giving an advanced copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
