Review "The Power by Jennifer L. Armentrout"

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.

This book begins right where the first one ended. Seth and Josie decided to give their relationship a try. Josie is awakened as a demigod and she is training to become stronger and control her powers. 

What is this book all about 
In this book we continue Seth and Josies story. Josie is training to become stronger and to control her powers. She and Seth are growing closer together but there is still something that is holding Seth back. Things are getting more and more tense at the covenant as the pures and the halfs are fighting amongst themselves. Not only that, the Titans are still lurking around waiting to attack. 
Seth and Josie are trying to find the other demi-gods so that they can fight the Titans for once and for all. The thing is, they can't do it alone. They need the help of other demi-gods to track and protect the other born demigods. Will Seth be able to deal when he has to look the consequence of his action in the eye? Or will his resentment though wards himself keep him and Josie from being together, from being happy? 
The war between the greeks and the titans are far from over. Their will be a price to pay, the question is what is the price and are Seth and Josie willing to pay or will it destroy them forever. 

What did I love about this book.
I felt so bad for Seth. The way he feels about himself is heart breaking. He acts all confident and cocky but deep down he is a broken man. He deserves to be happy and so does Josie. They are so good together. 
I loved seeing Alex and Aiden again. It's great to see them so happy. 
The one thing I loved, maybe the most, is when Josie stood up for Seth. It really showed how much she loves him. 
I can't wait to read the third book! March can't come soon enough.
