Overview

A bloody path has been chosen...

The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs.

The Great War fought by the few is coming...

All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people.

In the end, the sun will fall...

The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same.

For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in...

Another great read for JLA! This is the third book in the Titan series and very much keeps you on your toes. JLA writes such amazing stories and you feel so in tune with the characters that its like you are right there as everything is happening. This was a great addition to this series and am I now anxiously awaiting the next installment!

This book got me right in the feels. The title is literally, The Struggle, and I found myself struggling to put it down. I raced through this book eating up every single detail. There really wasn't as much action in this book (fighting/death), however, there is a TON of plot set up. Josie is left heartbroken after Seth leaves the group to work out the changes he is undergoing. After being left alone, something significant happens and Josie has to struggle to stay alive. All while still loving and pining for Seth. Seth returns to his childhood home to try to work through all of the changes he is undergoing. We get to see Seth go from Bad Boy extraordinaire to a more sensitive and caring Seth *Awww* So much plot building, I'm pretty sure my mind is still reeling with the details for the next book! If you're a lover of YA, steamy romance, action, and amazing plot you will absolutely love this book as much as I did.

I zipped through this so quickly..... Seth really pulls at my heart strings.... the ultimate bad boy turned good, struggling to do the right thing even if it costs him Josie... In 'The Struggle', we start to see the bigger picture and how everything that has happened, has led to Seth finally understanding who and what he is. This is definitely a staging ground for the final book in the series and I absolutely adored it. I would recommend this to anyone who likes the Urban Fantasy genre but this one is definitely not YA, like the Covenant series. I have purchased my copy on Amazon AU.

I was given an arc in exchange for an honest review. The newest installment does not disappoint. I thoroughly enjoyed The Covenant series, easily one of my top five favorites of all time, and this spin off series is just as awesome! I was very skeptical when I first heard of The Return being written, but now I can’t wait to read each book. I fell in love with Seth in Pure, and have loved watching him develop through this new series. If you’re skeptical about starting this series, but loved the covenant series, you should jump in because you will get to read more about your favorite characters. I love that even though the series is focused on Seth and Josie, we get to see more of the characters we’ve already fallen for. Seth is such a fun and lovable character, and of course he and Josie are absolutely perfect for each other. If you’re a fan of action, romance, the covenant series, or just JLA’s work in general, you should definitely start this series. I am always sad when I finish a book, but regardless of what I tell myself, I continue to binge read them in a day. I cannot wait for the next installment, seriously hoping the next year flies by. Thanks JLA for continuing to write awesome books, and always managing to beat my expectations!!

If you haven't read The Return or The Power, you better stop reading this now or you might get some spoilers from the previous books. Following the previous events from The Power, Seth has left the group to protect them, or to protect Josie at least. He has yet to understand all the powers that come with being the God Killer and he doesn’t want to harm her more than he has. Heading to the only place far enough from her, he will end up learning a lot more about who he has become. Seth’s character is probably the character that goes through the most changes in this book. He has become something he has yet to understand the extent of its power and he’s struggling a lot with the guilt of what he has done in the past. The last one isn’t new as we have been following Seth since book one and we know this issue isn’t going to solve itself easily, but it’s such a huge part of who he has become. Even if people forgave him, he had yet to reach that kind of level towards himself. Josie’s character is going to go through a lot in this book too, both physically and mentally. Searching for Seth will end up being a lot more to handle that she probably first anticipated. An old enemy is back and he wants revenge. I will say that I really love Josie because she is genuinely a good person. She wants to protect and help the people she care about, yes, but she’s willing to risk herself to save others too. She’s always been mature, but the way she handles each situation in this book has made me love her more. The best example is that she is open to accept so much from Seth because she knows that he has so much good in him. She knows who he was and she knows who he is and she isn’t willing to give up on him. Doesn’t mean she has forgotten; it just means she knows that not everything is black and white and that he deserves a chance. Josie and Seth are both pretty much in a learning curve versus their powers, their love and their future. It isn’t easy with Seth being protective of her and Josie wanting to prove herself and show she can take care of herself. It isn’t easy as the book progress for them to find a compromise to their problems, but they are trying their best. The Gods as always are always cryptic and have a tendency to keep information to themselves when it could be useful to our little group, but I guess that sometimes Gods just forget that they have to trust the people they asked to save the world. I was also glad to be reunited again with Alex, Aiden, Deacon and Luke. They are such loyal friends and I feel like Alex and Josie have become even closer in this book and I was really happy about that. Overall, Jennifer has once again brought us through a rollercoaster of events that will leave you breathless. The ending is not actually a cliff-hanger, but it will leave you begging for the next book to see where the final book in the series will lead our heroes.

I don't believe the author or the characters of The Struggle require an introduction. It's the third book in the series, and if you are looking to read it... DON'T. Start from the beginning- the Return and The Power. And if you really want to have an amazing adventure in the world of Greek mythology, loyal friends, forbidden love and so much more, you might want to start with the Covenant series. This is where Seth's story begins after all. I must admit - so far The Struggle is my favorite in the series. We get lots of time with Josie, more interactions with old and new characters, but in my opinion, Seth appears to be the center of this book. It might have something to do with the fact that I saw the Apollyon in a different light. It's like he was a black and white drawing that got transformed into a 3D figure. Suddenly, there was so much depth to his character, so much new and unexpected that it was almost hard to believe it was still Sethie. I'm pretty sure he was surprised himself of some of the qualities he displayed in the third book. Watching him recognize the feelings growing inside of him, giving those feelings a name and coming in terms with the fact that yes, he deserves for someone to feel that way about him, was truly heart-breaking. "I was never a praying man. I didn’t believe the gods answered prayers. Knew for a fact that they didn’t care enough to do so, but in that moment, I wanted to pray. I want to pray that this was real, that this was really happening." And he is not the only one to make some unexpected discoveries. Josie goes through some changes as well, and she learns how to adapt to her new reality. Relationship between Seth and Aiden takes an interesting turn from "I wanna punch you in a throat" to "I still wanna do that but I kind of respect you", and it's pretty fun to watch. > The Struggle broke my heart as I witnessed Seth making "the right" choices and then live with the consequences of those decisions. It shattered at the pain and regret both main characters were put through. But it was all so worth it. Because at the end my heart healed, along with Josie and Seth's, at the promise of a future. > Can't wait for the final book and for all of the questions that I now have after reading The Struggle.

I've always found Seth super interesting and hilarious and that's still the case after reading The Struggle. He goes through a lot in this book, but it all makes him a better man in the end. We all know he doesn't always make the smartest decisions, but he's learning and realizing what and who really matter to him. Josie is still a sweet girl who doesn't deserve the bad things that happen to her, but she's a fighter. I love how she can always go toe to toe with Seth. I also love the side of Seth she brings out in him. The "Army of Awesome" is what makes these books. I love all of them and their relationships with one another. They are all hilarious yet tough as nails. Alex and Aiden are always going to be my favorites so anytime they are included makes me happy. The storyline was good, definitely had some things in it that came as a surprise to me. The pop culture references that JLA includes always make me smile, especially the Supernatural ones. I have no clue how everything is going to play out in the final book of the Titan series, but I can't wait till next year to read it and find out!

The Struggle by Jennifer L Armentrout releases everywhere very soon. I can’t wait for all her fans to get their hands on this book. This is the third book in her Titan series which is a spin off from her Covenant series. Some of our favorite characters make a re-appearance in this book again much to the delight of us all. This is this continuing story of Josie, a newly found demigod and the daughter of Apollo, and Seth, the remaining Appolyon who was given the task to protect her and help her find the other demigods in order to defeat the released Titans who are wreaking havoc on the world. a bloody path has been chosen… The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs. The Great War fought by the few is coming… All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people. In the end, the sun will fall… The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same. For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in… And as vague as that synopsis is once you read the story it does all make sense. However there is more than one new beginning coming in this story and this book answers many of the questions posed in book two and leaves us with more for book four. We also get to see some great changes, some good and some better come over Seth. "Everything had changed now.  Heady, deadly power churned deep inside me, and it was nothing like what being an Apollyon felt like. Oh no, this was like the Apollyon on steroids. I had a feeling that the unexpected awakening, the even more surprising subsequent ability to kill Atlas, was just the beginning of what I was capable of, because the entire world was different to me now." It does however NOT end in a cliffhanger which is much appreciated by many of us. If you have loved the covenant series and want more, more, more then this series and this book is definitely for you. The only bad thing from my perspective is that we must wait a full year before the next book comes out. Buy it, read it, love it

The Struggle (book 3 in the Titan series by Jennifer L. Armentrout) picks up immediately following the explosive ending to the second novel in the series - The Power. I highly recommend reading the previous books in the series if you haven't already! (And the Covenant series, which is the prequel to Titan). "A bloody path has been chosen" Seth has taken himself out of the game. He's too powerful. To tempted. Unwilling to put himself in a position to hurt Josie. But despite his warnings, despite her heartache, Josie still believes in Seth. Believes he's good. Worthy of her love. Even though he's run, the danger is still there. The Titan's are still hunting for the remaining demigods...they still need to feed. "For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in" While Seth comes to terms with who he is and the power he yields, the rest of the gang is still in danger. Is Josie really safer without him? Or does she need him to survive? The Struggle is a great progression in Seth and Josie's storyline. The depth of emotion from Seth is powerful, while he continues to keep the sarcastic, egotistical attitude that is inherent to his character, he's also maturing and growing. There's a tender side to Seth I wouldn't have expected, but he's still H.O.T. and the chemistry between the two is off the charts. The Struggle is a great progression in the story arc, with consistent action throughout. I wanted to savor the book, but I couldn't put it down!

I had to wait an entire year for this book and I was NOT disappointed! Josie and Seth's relationship was crazy as ever. There was so much going on. At the end of The Power, Seth had left Josie for her own protection. When Seth arrives at his old home, things are not the same. He is being bowed to. They are there to serve him like a god. Josie is crushed that Seth is gone. She says she will stop at nothing to prove that Seth is worthy of the wants and needs of everyone else. Then, Josie gets taken by Hyperion. OMG! The pain that she feels is so intense. Before I read The Struggle, I went back and reread the other two Titan novels. I had an inkling that Josie would be in the condition she was in at the end of book 3. There was a major hint in book 2 and I only caught it by rereading! I loved this story. Seth is my favorite Jennifer L Armentrout character. He continues to grow on me through each and every book he has been in. I am excited to see what is in store in the next book. I am sad that it is going to be another year before it is released.
