I can't believe this is the end! Ugh, so many tears! SO MANY! This was the absolute perfect ending for not only the Titan series, but also for the Covenant series as well- unless of course, JLA wants to write more (pretty please?). Honestly, I didn't want it to end. I've loved these character so much, way back when I discovered them on Goodreads in 2011. This entire series is so unique that you get sucked in instantly and end up falling in love with all the characters in it. I just can't believe I'm never going to read another Covenant novel! Also, side note: This is definitely a book you want to have emotional support nearby for! And tissues. Lots and lots of tissues! Okay, okay. So enough moping about it ending. The Prophecy was everything I wanted it to be. Josie is once again our kick butt heroine and Seth is Seth in all his amazing-ness. However, I feel like the characters have really grown up in this final installment and we see that on a new level. And while the Big Bad is still out there (and we do get some serious action scenes), this last book is more focused on wrapping everything up and the emotions behind what has been going on. The gang is on a ticking clock trying to find a way to entomb the Titans once more and nothing is going as planned. While I really loved the entire book, what I was super proud of was Josie. I'm not going to get into any spoilers, but Josie's character goes through so many changes and she has so many things thrown at her, and yet she comes out of it stronger and WISER. She makes the right decisions for her and I was so proud of her character for that. Of course, I think the same can be said about Seth. He's come a long way since his days in the Covenant series for sure. The bottom line is, JLA is Boss/ Queen and the collection of both the Covenant and Titan novels is one of my favorites and I definitely recommend them to everyone!

The Prophecy was a pretty decent ending to this worthwhile series. It was so much fun revisiting these characters and seeing how Seth and Josie end up. Their relationship was so sweet and touching, the love and devotion were clearly there. I really enjoyed their storyline. There were so many times my heart broke for these two, particularly towards the end, but that just shows how much I cared for them. They're certainly put through the ringer. I'm happy that JLA dialed back on the pop culture references and fluff that she's known for. This was a more serious/somber kind of book, so the tone was done right and I appreciated that. You still get a lot of laughs and light moments, so don't worry about that. My only problem with the book was that there wasn't enough action. I was hoping for more action and drama. I wanted to see the "big, bad Titans" in all their evil glory and I'm disappointed I didn't get that. We get our fair share of deaths and damages, but it wasn't enough for me. We also get some battle scenes and, of course, the last "epic" battle scene, but I was hoping for more. It certainly wasn't as epic as I thought it was going to be. Other than that, it was good. I loved seeing all of the secondary characters again as well. I will say that I didn't quite see that end coming. I knew what to expect, but there was a detail I overlooked and it was bittersweet. And the epilogue?! Warm, gooey feelings!!! Ugh, the FEELS!!!!!!

Holy shitake balls!!! The Prophecy was an amazing conclusion to The Titan series. This story was everything I could’ve hoped for and then some! It held everything I loved when reading: romance, humor, action, a bit a suspense, witty comments, pop culture references, heartbreak, and surprises. It’s not often I am tempted to cry, but Jenn sure knows how to get me in the feels....and this one GOT me big time. To the point where I had to set the book down and take a little breather. I enjoyed watching how both Josie and Seth mature, watch their love and bond strengthen, and just how their relationship has overall grown. It was beautiful to “see” as I turned each page. There were so many things I never saw coming and had me gasping or shouting in surprise. And the ending?! Omfg!!! It got me in the feels so hard, I know I’ll have a serious book hangover for days to come. All in all, it was AMAZEBALLS and if you’ve kept up with Seth, Josie, and the rest of The Army of Awesome, then don’t put off reading this story! Well done, Jenn! ARC received in exchange for honest review.

I started this book knowing it was the last in the series and had high hopes for another fantastic journey with my favorite characters. I was NOT disappointed. History is on repeat… Seth never thought he’d have a future. But now he’s on the brink of having it all with Josie: A tomorrow. A family. A forever. And all that's standing between him and that forever is the Titans. If he helps Josie entomb them -- without killing them, a nearly impossible task for him -- everything he could ever want will be in reach. But he soon realizes that as a god, every little choice he makes can reshape the world for the better… or worse. And in meddling with the Titans, Seth may have just set into motion catastrophic consequences that will force the Olympians to enter the mortal realm and reshape the delicate balance of power that keeps the world from total collapse. Seth being Seth things just could not be easy. The Gods and the Titans continually do things to piss him off and even though he has matured his first reaction is to fight and kill, but now there are horrendous consequences if he kills another Titan.. A price must be paid… Entombing the Titans is Josie’s top priority. After all, it was what she was born to do. But the plans her father put into play to help her are no longer an option, and the odds she and Seth face in forging their own path are grim. The escalating violence between halfs and pures only increases the danger closing in on them and their friends. Josie knows their chances of succeeding in their task are slim at best -- and if they fail, they might lose everything. But she also knows she's not fighting just for herself -- she's fighting for the man she loves, for their future, for the world. Together with the Army of Awesome, Josie and Seth will face the unthinkable. And to win this war, the ultimate sacrifice must be made. For the end is here and the Prophecy will be fulfilled…. this story just has so many emotions zinging around It's hard to know where to start. We go from happy because of the progression of the relationship with Josie and Seth to sad and tearful because of the choice they have to make. I think i was in tears for the last third of the book, it so was not a good Idea to read this on my break at work. There also is a death in this book that I was not expecting and when a favorite character is taken away, one that I have loved from book one of the Covenant Series, it definitely is emotional. If you are a JLA fan then you know she always leaves us with a HEA so wondering how we were going to get there posed a lot of questions. Needless to say this book is awesome, has ALL THE FEELS, and will leave you satisfied with the completion of the series. wonderful job once again Jennifer!!!

Oh my gods. What just happened? I am still in complete shock after reading this book. It was everything I expected and more. I seriously do not understand what just happened. This book was so filled with twists and turns that it kept me surprised, and hooked to the page, needing to know more. There were just so many surprises, I don’t even know how to deal with it all. That was a week ago. Now, I’m still in shock over this book. The number of times I laughed over this book is ridiculous, and I’m not even going to mention how many times I cried. If anything, The Prophecy is an emotional read, because I care so much about these characters, and I just needed everyone to be happy. And everything just kept going wrong, and I was just a mess reading this book. I’m going to start with the one downside of this book; Josie. I’ve loved her in all the previous books, I’ve loved how well she’s been dealing with all the stuff thrown her way, and I’ve loved how brave she’s been in spite of everything, but I just didn’t feel that in this book. She was doing everything to avoid getting in fights, and she just didn’t feel as kickass as she did in the previous books. I’m not even sure what to say about Seth. My feelings for Seth has gone so much up and down through the Covenant and then the Titan series, and in this book, I loved him more than ever. I’m freaking in love. The amount of character development Seth has gone through since book one – or even the first book in the Covenant – is incredible. I’ve loved seeing him grow through these books, and I loved seeing how he actually started taking responsibility for his actions in this book. Plus, he is undeniably hot and, come on, impossible not to love. I love the romance. I think Josie and Seth are just amazing together, I love how Josie believes in him and sees the good in him even when no one else does. And, okay, sometimes it makes her seem really naïve, but most of the times, I love it. And the romance is both sweet and intense. It’s just amazing. The plot… guys, the plot. It’s fast-paced, from the beginning until the end. It kept me on the edge from page one to the very last page. It’s been a while since I finished a book in one sitting, but it was impossible to not finish this book in one sitting. If a book could ever be called unputdownable, this is it. Every twist and turn of this book surprised me, and the book was filled with twists. I’d think I had everything figured out, only to have my world turned upside down, then I’d get used to upside down, and it would turn again. The action is amazing and it never stops. I absolutely love Greek mythology. And I love books with Greek mythology. And these books are some of my absolute favourite mythology books, because the author works it into the plot so nicely. The way she uses it, her version of the mythology and the stories everyone has heard, is really amazing. Even though you know the stories, they’re fresh and unique and surprising. As usual, the writing is amazing. And reading this book, I think I finally figured out what it is about her writing that always gets to me. At least part of what makes it so magical. One of the things I love about her writing is that even in the direst of situations, she still manages to add something that makes you laugh. There’s this perfect balance between tension and light-heartedness. And, yes, there’s this lovely magic in her words that just keep you hooked to the page.

Emotional? That word is way too tame to describe the way I felt while reading this book. Surprised? Very much so. Didn't see that coming at all. Broken? Not just me but the characters as well. A price? Yes. There is one. In the book and for the reader. Twists? Yep, that too. One I really should have seen but when it happened, I was like, yep. Titans? Though I wish the answer was Seth killing them all - I like better what Seth learned. Old friends? Hard to even comment here. Yes, we lose one. The story? Brilliant. Simply brilliant. The writing? Amazing as always. The characters? I adore them though I hate some. Emotional definitely involved there. In the end? I was completely satisfied. When you add it all together, this book is an amazing conclusion to a wonderful series. The growth in characters, the way the story comes full circle, the sigh I felt at the end...all perfection. This author does a great job with character development and the way characters interact with each other. It's real and true. And while I always enjoy her contemporary books, it's these paranormal ones that really shine. She's able to demonstrate real life truisms with the help of the supernatural world, driving the point home so much better. Something I truly enjoy. I was amazed...truly amazed that this book brought the series and the Covenant series full circle. Only a truly gifted author can make that work. And it just brought so much back from the first series with Alex and Aiden (my first books with this author and my very favorite book boyfriend). While this book is painful, at times, it also has such a sanctification at the end. The very last paragraph just made me all kinds of happy. And least you think the whole book is sad, there is plenty of giggles and sexy times to go around. Actually, the first 3/4 of the book is a wonderful experience. That last 1/4 just gets real and you will need the tissue box. Just sayin'. If you haven't read this series, I'm not sure we can be friends. What are you waiting for? It's amazing. So pick it up and devour it. Actually, I may envy you just a bit. You can read the whole thing straight through with no waiting. Lucky you. Make sure and get all four books, though because you'll want the next one as soon as you finish one. Go. One click it. For those of you who have read along the way like me? I think you know to grab this book. But let me assure you that you will survive reading it. You may need a friend to sob with in one or two places but it will be worth it. Go. Read this book.

The Prophecy was a stunning conclusion to the Titan Series! It was action packed, emotionally gutting and completely addicting! This is going down as one of my favorite series ever ! Here are some of the reasons why I fell so crazy hard for The Titan Series...... ✮ Characters that captured my heart From the beginning of this series, Josie and Seth enraptured my heart. And as I closed each new book, I felt myself grow even closer to them. Along with every one else in the pages. They all felt so real. As though I could feel their emotions radiating off of the pages. It was so easy to love them, flaws and all. But Seth? Oh, he will always be one of my favorites. He was the tortured soul whose past continually haunted him. His choices broke his own heart, and mine. Yet he was more than redeemable. And he proved that. Especially in this book! I've never been more proud of Seth! Although, just wait. Because Josie's love and faith in Seth made me cry. She was the perfect match for Seth in every way possible. ✮ True Love There is something so powerful about love conquering all. And what Josie and Seth had was definitely true love. It not only conquered all, but it gave them strength. Strength with each other and it also helped them find strength within themselves. But they definitely didn't have an easy path. They had so many obstacles in their way. Yet they persevered. And their love grew stronger because of everything they faced. I loved that by the end, Seth and Josie truly felt like a power couple. ✮ An emotional journey The Prophecy was the most emotional book in this series. And that's saying a lot, because the last book? I thought that one would break me. Oh how naive I was. I found myself sobbing through chapters of the Prophecy. So make sure that you have a box of tissues with you, because I found myself crying all kinds of tears. There were happy tears, hopeful tears and then there was also the gut wrenching tears that stole my breath and left me shaking. This was an extremely emotional book. And looking back, I loved every minute of it! ✮ Friendships Here's another beautiful thing about this series, it was not just about Seth and Josie. There were so many characters that had captured my heart all the way back to The Covenant Series. And they played such an important part throughout this series! They added so much lightness and humor. They had Seth and Josie's backs. They were true friends. And I loved all of the smiles, laughter and even tension they created. Alex, Aiden, Luke, Declan, Solos, Marcus, Apollo and so many others added so much heart to this book! ✮ Sacrifice Sacrifice was such a beautiful, emotional theme throughout this series. Seth sacrificed his happiness to keep Josie safe, and far away from him. Josie sacrificed her duties and relationship with someone, so she could make Seth realize how much she loved him. I watched this theme happen again and again throughout this series. Every single time it was magnificent. But the sacrifices that took place in The Prophecy? It blows all of the other sacrifices out of the water. These crushed my heart and soul. I sobbed hysterically and there was no stopping the pain. Yet the love it showed? It was beautiful. It was selfless. And it was perfect. Absolutely perfect. The Covenant Series was one of my favorite series. To be able to stay in that world, in a spin-off series, with characters I loved with my whole heart?! Priceless! And with the addition of new characters I absol

Well that was an emotional book! I've been looking forward to The Prophecy and seeing how it all ends for Seth, Josie, and the rest of the Army of Awesome since the end of The Struggle. They always have me laughing out loud and I love them all. They're such a great group of characters that are easy to like and feel for. They went through the ringer of emotions in this book and I definitely went with them. It was an intriguing storyline with a good amount of action. There were a lot of surprises along the way that had me reeling for a while, but I'm luckily fully recovered now. I really hope this isn't really the end for this wonderful group and their interesting world cause I'm not ready for it to be over.

Rating: 4.5/5 If you haven't read The Return, The Power or The Struggle, you better stop reading this now or you might get some spoilers from the previous books. This series ends in a way only Jennifer L. Armentrout can end them; half of me crying and half of me happy ;) More seriously, we embark one last time in Seth and Josie's journey and it will make you go through all kind of feels throughout it. Entombing the Titans is their main concern but the task seems even more impossible with the more news they gather up. With the remaining demigods, their success rate is slim, but Josie and the gang are determined to find a way to succeed but Titans aren't the only problem they need to deal with. One of them comes in the form of war between the pures and the half-blood on campus. The hatred between the two groups escalates so quickly that it seems to be fuelled by something. The second one is the search to retrieve the remaining demigod which will lead them to new discoveries about this one and open another can of worms. In-between those problems, the Titans continue to cause mayhem and cause the gang more headaches as the options to solve this huge problem seem less than stellar. Because the lack of demigods seems to be putting a halt into their plans and the Gods themselves don't seem to be forthcoming with information that could be helpful. Seth's character had evolved so much since the Covenant series but I really feel that he got his biggest changes in this book. I really feel even if he's still a cocky guy, he matured in ways we would have never imagined him do when we first met him. He's growing into a man that he wants his kid to look up to and though it's not easy, he's learning to control his impulsivity to hit first and ask questions later. As for Josie, she has so much on her plate and she's torn between wanting to fight the Titans and protect the child growing inside of her. This pregnancy also brings forward her protective side even more I believe. In this book, we can see that she's no longer the girl who feared the unknown; she's plunging into it and showing just how resourceful she can be. But this pregnancy also brings a lot of questions as no one seems to know what to expect from this child. The two of them are learning to work together and trusting one another and I don't think Jen could have gotten a more perfect partner for them as they complete each other. It's not always easy between them, but they make it work. All the characters will leave you with an impression; good or bad. Deacon is still very much my favourite characters because even with everything he saw and experience, he has such a bubbly personality that just wants to gravitate around him. Alex and Aidan are still ever presence which is comfortable, especially with the bromance developing between Seth and Aidan even if Seth would deny it ;) My only thing lacking with the characters is that we don't get much contact with the other demigods; they are there but at the same time, I feel like we don't get a whole lot which would have been interesting. But that also leads me to hope that if even if this story is done, Jen could always revisit this world if she wanted to. She would have a few new characters to choose from and a lot of elements to work with. Sacrifices, love, hate and trials are the major themes in this last installment. Prepare yourself that this journey will not leave you unaffected. Twists and turns like only this author can do them.

Josie and Seth are preparing for the war against the Titans, in this volume we see Zeus appear. I shed tears while reading The Prophecy, a lot of them for different reasons; I find that Seth finally begins to recognize that he loves humanity, and that he doesn’t want a certain future for Josie. He will have to avoid killing the remaining Titans and fix his mistakes. I really like Seth, I think he’s evolved a lot from the Covenant series. Certainly he’s still pretentious but he takes it on him and I think Josie brings him the peace he wants so much. I just think that the point addressed in the third book on how to feed is no longer as important in this volume 3 when it should be. Josie suffers a lot in this book but she remains strong and fierce. She can count on Seth, Aiden, Alex, Deacon and Luke to support and protect her. I really sympathize with Josie, her relationship with Apollo is not easy and he doesn’t do anything to prove her wrong. I like the strength she has in herself to be over everything that happens. I would not tell you that I didn’t see the end coming because it would be wrong, it’s a bit of a reproach I could make to the story, it’s that this event was so predictable that I would have liked something different. It was a real pleasure to discover Josie and to find all the heroes of the Covenant series. Jennifer L Armentrout always manages to get me into her stories and I live them emotionally.

What a wonderful way to wrap up a series! This book had me on an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish. I have to admit, I'm really going to miss these characters. Halfblood was the very first JLA book I picked up back in 2012 (If you have not read it, run and grab it!). Josie is a born Demigod, daughter of Apollo, and all around sweetie. She's a little nieve at times, but it makes me love her even more. She had to grow up so much in this last book. Her character has to go through some pretty heart wrenching situations. Out of all of JLA's female character, Josie is the one I can relate to most. She a no-nonsense type of girl and I love it! Her relationship with Seth is admirable as she works with him to face down his demons. Seth the Apollyon and now God Killer, is a badass! He has been my favorite character since introduced in Pure (

Oh my Gods, the Bromance between Seth and Aiden is epic. I knew they couldn't hate on each other forever. So obviously, I can't go into too much, because nobody likes a spoil-post. BUT...you will need the following when reading this book...tissues and Wine (or your preferred drink of choice)...THERE WILL BE ALL THE FEELS!!! Tears, laughter, Tears, butt kicking scenes, snarky comebacks, and more. If you needed another reason to fall in love with these characters, you'll find it in this book. But we all know Seth is the guy we secretly rooted for all through-out the series, from his very first appearance in the Covenant series to now. I loved this book.

Wow. Just wow. The Prophecy was just SO MUCH. The Prophecy picks up where The Struggle left off, Seth, Josie and the gang are searching for the last demigod so that they can entomb the Titans. The entire world is in turmoil - the aftereffects of killing two of the Titans continue to wreak havoc on the planet, the Pures are getting increasingly violent toward the halves, and the Titans have put their end-game in motion. With all of the tragedies happening in the world, Josie is feeling guilty that she's so very happy. She knows they need to entomb the Titans, that the Titans already got their hands on most of the demigods, but she is also just so happy with her life with Seth. And Seth, he would do absolutely anything for Josie. When The Covenant series concluded, I felt Seth had, at best, marginally redeemed himself. His character went through so many changes over the course of the past four books, and he's come out the other side a better man. He has far more than redeemed himself, and he broke my heart doing it. The crew learns that the Olympians had some help entombing the titans the first time around, and they're going to need help to entomb them again. But there is a steep price, Are Seth and Josie willing to make the sacrifice, to bring their child into a better world? The Prophecy was filled with love and comradery. It was the perfect ending to a phenomenal series. Not gonna lie, tears were shed in the reading of this book, and still it exceeded my expectations. I am so sad to see this series end, to know there won't be more, that I won't be able to catch up with my old friends. But still, the Prophecy was an amazing conclusion to the Titan and Covenant series. Goodbye to Seth and Josie, Alex and Aide, Luke and Deacon. I will miss all of you so very much! Thank you to Jennifer for sharing this world, and these amazing characters with us. They will be missed.

Gods! I'm a mess... I don’t even know where to start reviewing this book. My heart is still beating like it’s going to come out of my chest and I still have tears in my eyes. I expected an epic story and memorable ending to this series, and I certainly got that, but boy, I was so not prepared for what hit me. I wanted to jump straight in and finish this book in one sitting, eager to see what this story would offer, but at the same time I wanted to devour each word and take my time in this world. I’ve been with these characters for several years now, lived their stories, felt their emotions, suffered and loved with them and knowing this was the last installment in this series made me feel like I was saying good-bye to an old friend. And I kind of was... The story continued right where it ended with The Struggle and it was like I never left this world. I was right there again, surrounded by all the godly creatures, trying to figure out how to entomb the Titans, trying to save the world. And of course in typical JLA fashion there were the intense battles combined with some small and big twists that made me bite my nails. There was the sexy banter between Josie and Seth that made me grin like an idiot. Then there was the bromance between Seth and Aiden and all the witty comebacks to the Gods that made me laugh out loud. But above all was the love in this book. It was completely and utterly breath-taking to read –the devotion, the hot passion, the steamy scenes, the quiet acceptance of the other. It was the perfect combination of everything I look for in a book and then some. Josie was still this strong, defiant, badass girl I started to admire throughout the previous books. She was a bit shy and hesitant in the beginning, but she grew into a confident, determined woman and completely thrived in this final book. I felt sorry for all the things she had to endure. She certainly suffered a lot of pain, but at the end, she was stronger than before and turned into a character to look up to. And Seth…OMG Seth! Swoon, sigh and repeat! I have to admit I wasn’t a fan of Seth in the Covenant series. There was time that I truly hated him and wanted to strangle him. There were times I wanted to slap him in the face in here too, but boy, he completely redeemed himself. He was still his cocky, a bit arrogant, somehow annoying self, but his character development throughout this series was truly remarkable and he absolutely and irrevocably stole my heart in this book. He was so caring, patient and overprotective of Josie and his love for her – so selfless and pure, was flowing freely from the pages and simply melted my heart. They both grew a lot in this series and become better persons individually, but they were truly amazing together. They were just destined to find each other, because it was their love that took out the best in them. They made a lot of fateful decisions in this series, they certainly made some bad choices and some that completely changed the course of this story. But at the end the real question was how much each one of them was willing to sacrifice to protect the ones they loved? But will their love be enough to change the Prophecy and what price are they willing to pay to save the world and the people they love? You need to figure that out for yourself, but prepare yourself for the unthinkable and be sure to have a box of tissues nearby.
