Review

The Greek gods engage in modern-day power struggles in the solid inaugural installment of the Titan new adult paranormal romance series. Seth, an otherworld/human hybrid introduced in Armentrout’s well-received Covenant YA series, bears a heavy burden of guilt over his past treacherous acts. He redeems himself by becoming Apollo’s judge and jury, meting out bloody justice to traitorous lesser gods and mortals. Far more of a challenge is his new assignment: guarding Apollo’s part-human daughter Josie, who needs to get up to speed on the doings of the deities -- about which she knows nothing -- so she can battle the bloodthirsty Titans. As Seth learns to restrain his violent instincts and Josie trains hers up, the romance and danger both escalate at a feverish pace. Armentrout dives deep into the psyches of both hero and heroine, deftly switching from one point of view to another, while creating a drum-tight sense of suspense and sexual tension from the first page to the last. This is a very promising start to the series.

(Publishers Weekly)

"Sizzling, forbidden romance and non-stop action make The Return an addictive read. Sign me up for the sequel - I am now officially a Seth-aholic."

(New York Times Bestselling author Jeaniene Frost)

About the Author

#1 New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout lives in West Virginia. All the rumors you've heard about her state aren't true. Well, mostly. She spends her time reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write. Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class, where she spent her time writing short stories... therefore explaining her dismal grades in math.

It's not surprise that I love JLA books. The first book I read of her's was Half-Blood, which is the first book in the Covenant series. I loved that book and was an immediate fan of both her and that series. That series is YA and is the same world as this one. This series spins off that one but is NA. I think you could read this one without having read the Covenant series because JLA rocks at helping you understand what's up without it being boring to those of us have read the first series. BUT, you will understand Seth better and love him more if you went through that first series with him.

I continue to be blown away with how much better JLA stories get with every book. She has been my favorite author for a while now but this book just reaffirmed that.

The characters...

JLAs stories are always very character driven and this one is no exception. She creates characters that feel real. They stay in character while responding to the choices of themselves and those around them. They grow, usually a lot. That happens a lot for Seth.

Seth. From the very first time I met Seth, I didn't trust him. He had his following in the Covenant series but I wasn't one of them. I knew he wasn't the right choice for Alex though he is so hard to resist at times. As he made choices that ripped us all apart, I became angry at him. (Characteristic of JLA books - my emotions are always involved). But then he did something at the end of the series that redeemed him for me and I hurt for him. There was no doubt he was in pain. That's where we pick him up with this spin-off series. As the blurb suggests, he's spent the last year doing the dirty work for the Gods. He's not happy and he doesn't believe he deserves anything better than what he has.

My Thoughts:

The Return, by Jennifer L. Armentrout is the first book in the Titan Series, and a spinoff from the Covenant Series. It is a book that I have been highly anticipating, because the Covenant Series is my favorite fictional series based on Greek Mythology. The Return was everything that I had hoped for, dreamed of, and more. It was a brilliant, breathtaking, romantic, and passion filled read.

The Return is Seth and Josie's story. Seth has been taking orders from the Gods of Olympus for a year now. His newest orders come from Apollo, and are to retrieve college student Josie, protect her with his life, and take her to the University/Covenant in South Dakota. He has no idea why a human is so important to the Gods, but when he meets Josie, he quickly realizes that there is more to her than meets the eye.

When Josie see's Seth for the first time, she is blown away by his beauty. However, when he starts talking about Olympus, The Gods, and her purpose in everything, she quickly decides that he is crazy. Eventually, when she see's and experiences things out of the realm of her reality, she begins to realize he is speaking the truth. As Seth and Josie begin their journey to South Dakota, they begin to develop deep and passionate feelings for one another, and are trying to survive the danger all around them...

The Return was a story filled with Ms. Armentrout's gorgeous imagination. It delivered everything that I wish for in a story; relatable and likable characters, an addictive plot full of surprises, romance, passion, intensity, and anticipation. It is the kind of book you devour, and after you finish it, you beg for the next installment. I loved Seth in this story.

I really hate to say but this book was okay to me. I enjoyed it and liked it but I didn't love it and that's such a bummer because I've been anxious to read this book for months. I feel at times that the story kind of dragged on and I was missing the romance. I know this is a series and book so I'm hoping that the romance between Seth and Josie is more prevalent in the next books. As it was in this one, I didn't always feel the connection between them. Or rather, I feel like the sparks weren't there.

I admit there were times that it was hard for me to read. Not because the book was bad but because of how things left off in Sentinel. I had such anxiety as I wasn't sure how everyone would be with Seth. I hurt for him. I will say that there were a lot more layers to Seth that I wasn't expecting that made me love him all the more.

As for Josie, I'm interested to see how she grows throughout the rest of the series. For now, I haven't really connected with her like I have with other heroines of Jennifer L. Arementrout's.

I really did enjoy The Return and loved jumping back into this world that Jennifer L. Armentrout created. It felt like I never left and I loved that. I also really liked catching up with some of my favorite characters from the Covenant series, especially Deacon and Luke. Despite my misgivings with this book I'm still really eager to read the next book in the series. I need and want more Seth.

First off, I love JLA. I've read all her books and adore her characters and writing style. I'm pretty sure if we ever met, I would freak out and/or cry and do something embarrassing like immediately ask her to be the maid of honor at my wedding in the very distant future. I was a huge Seth fan while reading the Covenant series (even though Alex and Aiden were obviously meant to be) so when I heard he was getting a spinoff, I pretty much flipped my lid. That being said, The Return was a huge disappointment for me.

The thing I love most about JLA's writing is that she develops her characters so well and makes them so relatable, you feel like you can connect with them on an emotional level. Their pain is your pain, a triumph of theirs is yours. I cried actual tears when Daemon and Katy got married in the Lux series. Neither Josie nor Seth were developed in a way that I could relate to, which is weird because Seth was fully developed (and freaking hilarious) in the Covenant series. The Seth in The Return is not the Seth of the Covenant books. Seth has morphed into a less sweet version of Aiden. And guess what? Sethden is BORING. We get muted glimpses of sweet and sour Seth we've come to know and love, but I spent most of my time missing cuddle-bunny Seth who told Alex she needed to learn how to dance without a pole if she was going to the ball.

Maybe I feel this way about Seth because Josie was meh. Her character was meh. She and Seth's chemistry was meh, their banter was meh, their relationship was meh. I just didn't believe it. For JLA standards, this was pretty insta-lovey, and I just didn't think that was Seth's M.O. Their dialogue is clunky, awkward, and, frankly, falls flat. Something I never thought I'd say about two JLA characters.
