With any great change, there is always strife, and the Covenant University has become the frontline between pure-bloods who want the Breed Order reinstated and the half-bloods who want the right to control their own destinies.
Fate has other plans.
The violence is escalating and war between the races seems inevitable, and it couldn’t come at a worse time. Hyperion may be out of commission, but Josie and Seth know they have only earned a reprieve. Seth must get Josie fully prepared, which means controlling her newfound abilities, and they need to find the other demigods before the Titans do.
But the gods are sensing a greater threat.
Only one thing is more dangerous than a bunch of starved Titans, and that’s an out-of-control Apollyon. The aether in Josie is drawing Seth in deeper, and when lust mixes with love and gives way to power, he knows being close to her is not only dangerous to her, but to everyone around them, but letting her go requires a level of selflessness that just isn’t Seth’s style.
The paths taken in the past are becoming the roads of the future.
Just as chaos breaks out, familiar faces from the past return, complicating the already strained bond between Josie and Seth, and when the danger from the Titans erupts with devastating consequences, the dark allure of power calls to Seth again, but this time Josie might not be able to pull him back.
And when the struggle between power and love becomes the deadliest battleground, there may be no salvation.

Oh. So. Many. Feels!!!
I’m downright emotionally tortured and exhausted. My heart feels like it was smashed and ripped out of my chest, at the hands and mercy of Seth. We’ll see so many more sides of him in this book. His vulnerabilities will slowly be uncovered and those are the most gut wrenching ones for me. Every time he showed this side of him, I just died a little more. His sweet, caveman ways with Josie made me fall in love with the Apollyon even more. And again, I’m totally stumped and bewitched by his power and strength and even his control. He may be battling with a darkness inside of him, but with Josie… Yeah, that changes everything.
Josie’s growth in this book is such an amazingly refreshing thing to see. She may have her own insecurities, but you can see and feel how hard she tries to keep up and live up to being the demigod that she is. She just never gave up. And for that, I loved her so much more. Even Deacon and Luke, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing in this book. They were truly such a comical and special pair. Although don’t even get me started with Hercules… Oh dear, I laughed my butt off so many times with how arrogant and overconfident and so full of himself that guy is. It was annoying to the point of pain, but downright hilarious.
Jennifer L. Armentrout continues to transport us to a different world, a different dimension filled with gods and ridiculously gorgeous and powerful creatures that will leave you in a daze for weeks. She successfully makes Seth win our hearts over and over again no matter what he does—good or bad. He’ll always be one of the most powerful, irresistible and perfectly imperfect paranormal book boyfriend I’ve ever met. I’ll never get enough of this series and waiting patiently for the next book will definitely kill me, but I’m sure will be well worth every second of the wait.
