Arriving in Virginia, Seth finds Josie. A college student, struggling to understand her mother’s mental illness and fearing it will be passed down to her. He comes in and flips her world upside down.

Review

FANTASTIC, FANTASTIC, FANTASTIC!!!

This was a re-read for me from last year. I loved it just as much, if not more this time around.

When I found this book just before it was published, I decided to read the original series first. I would recommend doing that before you read this book, but it is not needed. There is enough detail and back story given throughout the book to understand the story line, and more impotently to understand Seth. If you are looking for a great series to read, pick up The Covenant Series, but it is not a must for understanding the new, and dare I say better, series.

One of the things I love about this book, and Jennifer L. Armentrout’s writing as a whole, you aren’t just reading, you have been transported into this mesmerizing world where Greek Gods, still reign supreme.

For main characters you couldn’t ask for two better people. The best way to describe Seth, is as an onion. There are so many layers to pull back, sometimes you wish you had a knife and could cut right to the center, but where’s the fun in that?

Josie is as sweet as they can be. She has a feisty side to her which changes things up a bit and creates amazing banter between her and Seth, but ultimately she is a sweet girl, looking for her place in the world. Her sole motivation is to protect those she loves, at any cost to her. How can you not love her? She has a new world  thrust upon her, shattering her world views, adding to it a fate and destiny she cannot escape. Through it all she takes it in stride, never complaining and accepting it all.

The Return, is a wonderful read, whether it is your first, second, or hundredth time reading it. Pack full of action, witty banter, a budding romance, and dimensional characters, I highly recommend you pick it up and read it.

Another home run for Jennifer L. Armentout. I cannot wait to read the sequel on 23 February!!!

Come back on the 24th, to hear all about Carter Reed.
