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.

Seth from the moment you meet him knows how to steal the show in this novel. He had his followers in the Covenant series (I was in the middle), but I knew he wasn't the right choice for Alex despite what happened in the last two books. He made choices that made us angry but at the end what he did was redeeming. But it lead us to this book!! Since the end of Sentinel, Seth has been doing a lot for the Gods for what he did for Alex at the end of the book. The last thing he needs to think about is to babysit a human. Or so he thinks! In the last year he has done the dirty work for the Gods. He is not happy until he meets Josie. He wants to resist her and consider things, but being around her is making it difficult and thinks he is undeserving of her.
I really loved Josie from the beginning. You can see immediately that these two belong together. Each gives each other the strength and motivation to do better. Josie brings out the best in Seth which is great to see because we get to see a different side of him through her eyes. They have a similar history of their backgrounds that provides us a reason why Seth is the way he is. Josie can see right through Seth's tough exterior but she is drawn to him, even though he could be a jerk (Sethie!) which make me as the reader love him more!
JLA has a great sense of humor that you can connect with. She has phrases that are just hers that you will laugh from the first chapter! It was great being back into the amazing world that Jen has created! The Covenant series is my favorite and to see Apollo back and popping in at the worst moments is his trademark! You can see that they haven't changed! Lots have changed in the world, and change is very hard for most of this society. Seeing Deacon and Luke again also brought Josie comfort since those two are the most friendliest and easy to talk to!
Now to the romance that was super steamy and swoony!! How could it now be since Seth is involved!! I must warn you that it is HOT and it is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18 since it does have scenes. I loved Seth and Josie's relationship because it was sweet and innocent but it made me fall in love with Seth more! Boy that ending made me think and I want book 2 because there were a lot of emotions in this novel!
Overall, The Return is a must read for those who are big JLA fans like myself! This paranormal world will suck you into its plots and suspense that you will want the next book immediately!
I loved the Covenant books by Jennifer L. Armentrout and I will honestly admit to always really liking Seth. I always thought that he just had so much potential and I felt like there was so much more to him then we were really exposed to. So when The Return came out I was fan-girling like crazy!
In the Return we're immediately made aware that not all is as well as we could've hoped in the Covenant world. With the Breed Order gone there is an incredible amount of unease in the world that is bordering on violence. Add to that the fact that Seth is now basically enslaved to the Gods things aren't exactly cheerful. What got to me the most especially in the beginning is how broken and tormented Seth is. I knew with the conclusion of the Covenant series that all was not truly well in Seth's world but my heart literally ached for him. I have always been a firm believer that Seth is not a bad guy, even in his moments of extreme stupidity, he is not a bad guy by nature.
I was so relieved while reading The Return that I wasn't wrong! There is so much more to him and we're given an insight into Seth's dark past that made me better understand why he's done some of the things he's done. And then we have Josie. I fell insta-love with Josie! She is a character that is so easy to connect with because she is just so normal, or so we think.
Seth is tasked to guard Josie, who seems like just your ordinary everyday co-ed who had a lonely childhood growing up. The chemistry between these two is off the charts and reminded me so much of Alex and Aiden that it makes it so easy to see why these two are so drawn to each other! Plus with nicknames like Joe and Sethie, which by the way is absolutely adorable, I couldn't help but cheer them on!
It felt so good getting back into the Covenant world and seeing some familiar faces (Deacon, you still have my heart!). This book was impossible to put down and I read it in just two sittings I was so drawn into the world once more. I highly recommend picking up this book! I know some people hold reservations in regards to Seth but honestly he's one of my new favorite book boyfriends after reading this book and I could not be happier that Seth may have finally found someone who will put him above all others. I think we can all agree our boy deserves someone! As for Josie, she is the girl-next-door type, the one you never saw coming but fall in love with instantly with how real and fresh she is.
The Titan series is one of my new top faves and I cannot wait to see where these books will lead us! Thank you Jennifer for bringing us back to this incredible world!
Jennifer baked us a complex, organic, textural, fulfilling story that stands on it's own apart from The Covanent Series. The transition was flawless, the emotional pull even more dynamic. Excuse me while I do my happy dance while clapping like a tween at a One Direction concert.
Bravo to Jennifer to creating yet another decadent, delicious and obsessing series for us to devour. This series is now one of my favorites. Standing ovation well deserved!
