today’s review will be written in English, since I read the book in in English. 🙂
For those of you who want to read about Jennifer L. Armentrout’s German Books, check out „Verbotener Kuss (Dämonentochter #1)“ here.
In „The Return“ Jennifer L. Armentrout revisits a world we already know from the Covenant series. And although it felt a bit like coming home, it was also completely different.
You’ll see – after the jump! 🙂
Title: The Return
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series: Titan #1
Published: 16th of February 2015
Predecessor: Covenant Series
[contains spoiler for Covenant series]
The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…
It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.
Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.
But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.
Because history has once again been flipped to repeat
Once again, we check back in with people from the Covenant series – one of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s highly successful YA series.
This time around, our main character is Apollyon Seth, our favourite trolling Greek god Apollo – still having an affinity for shiny things – as well as Marcus, Solos and a mysterious person with the initials J.B.
And that’s as much as I’ll tell you about the plot or anything that happens in the book, since I all want you to read it.
Diving back in with Seth was a wonderful distraction from my rather unsatisfied ending with the Covenant series and I got everything I wanted from this book – and more! Seth was more like Seth that he’s ever been: funny, cocky, dangerous and utterly, utterly hot. Although he suffered alot during the Covenant series, this book planted a small seed called Hope and raised it to a wonderful flower in no time.
But enough with the poetry – let’s come to the good part!
This book was funny, stylish, had some action, absolutely had the drama and – oh, yes! – it had the love we’ll all be swooning over until the next book arrives. (Which, btw, hasn’t got a release date or anything near that.)
The development of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s characters was on point, realistic and I think there were only one or two scenes were I was a bit sceptical. (The outburst in the cafeteria was a bit like „How To Raise Hell in No Time“, but alright… people who can manipulate, summon and use the four elements probably fight a bit different than the puny, hair pulling mortals we are!)
All there is to say now: I want more! MORE! *politely raises voice* I hope for Seth to stay true to himself and for JLA to bless us with some kick-ass books, like always.
’nuff said, go, go, my little Minions. There is a book to read! 😉
