Title: The Prophecy (Titan, #4)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Pub. Date: March 20, 2018
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.
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 will be a spoiler free review.
I got this book back in March at ApollyCon 2018 in DC It was an amazing event, with tons of different authors and readers. I got to see some authors I hadn’t seen since the first ApollyCon in Philadelphia in 2011…I think. These are always great events, and I cannot wait for ApollyCon 2019 which will be in DC just like 2018, so of course I’m going! Jen puts on an amazing event for both the authors and the readers, and I can’t thank her enough for writing amazing books, with amazing characters and hosting this amazing event.
But it’s sad knowing that this is the final book in the Titan Series. If you didn’t know, it’s a spin off series as well as a continuation of her Covenant Series, only instead of focusing on Alex, it focuses on Seth.
This book has a little bit of everything, action, drama, amazing characters, suspense, definite funny moments and romance. This book (and the series) is a rollercoaster of emotions that will leave you in dire need of wanting more.
As the final book in this series, I was not disappointed. Seth grew to be so much more than the hot-headed Apollyon from the Covenant Series. The Prophecy hits the ground running and doesn’t stop. With the potential for world ending chaos, he has to fight harder than ever to protect everything and everyone he holds dear. He has to fight to protect Josie, the girl he loves. Between the two of them, rests a lot of power, and their only goal is finding a way to entomb the Titans before they reign havoc on Earth.
I loved him and Josie together, how they worked and fit together. They aren’t perfect people, and the world is often resting on their shoulders, but they find the little moments – perfect little moments where they get to be themselves, they get to be happy. Each are trying so hard to keep it together, but sometimes you just have to break and let it all out. They support each other, and work at being honest with each other. Seth isn’t perfect, he never was, but he tries so hard to be better for her, and Josie works tirelessly to be there for him, to remind him that he isn’t who the world views him as.
They’re each other’s support system.
I’m not happy that this is the last book with all of these characters. I’m a sucker for Greek Mythology, and I have loved these characters since 2012 when I first read Half-Blood and seeing it all end is painful. I think it is time for a full series/world re-read.
I love feeling I get when I pick up a Jennifer L. Armentrout book – it’s like coming home. If I get stuck in a book rut or get bored of whatever I’m reading (it happens from time to time) I can always turn to her books, her characters, and just read and read and read. This one was no exception. So much happens in this book, and there really is no downtime. Jen kept me on the edge of my seat. My jaw gaping, and despair often rolled through me. I won’t say which pats had me like that, but if you’ve read the book(s) then you know which scenes from The Prophecy that left me raw.
I feel like it would be interesting to see what happens later – like next generation – in this world, with some if not all of these characters. I feel like with Greek Mythology there are countless stories that could be told, and if Jen ever decided to write them, then I’m here for it.
I absolutely loved this book, the series, all of it. I’m definitely going to have to reread everything soon, it’s been too long since the last time.
