The Struggle

***SPOILER ALERT***

Recap book 2: Aiden and Alex return. They go to find the missing demigods. Solos dies (😭). Seth becomes the god killer and leaves Josie. 

This book starts off with zombies, honest to goodness crawling from a chasm that split demigod Gables living room, mother f*cking zombies. In pops Hyperion, he literally grabs Josie and poofs her away to be his prisoner and feed off of her. Meanwhile Seth is a god now. Josie endures 9 days of hell with the titans before Perseus takes her out of their warded warehouse and leaves her in the woods for Seth and Aiden to get her.

After some time Josie wakes up in Seth’s childhood home suffering some major PTSD, but honestly could you blame her? This part seriously had my heart wrenching and brought tears to my eyes for her. I don’t want to spoil way too much, the other half of the book OMG. This book was such an emotinal read. Even more so than the first two. I absolutely CANNOT wait for the next book!!!

Traveler

Jessa, a writer at heart, spends her time dreaming of different worlds and different lives and writing it down. One day, Finn, a character she thinks she dreamed up shows up in real life and it makes things super complicated. After a breakdown, Jess learns that her and Finn are travelers, people who have the ability to travel to different realities. 

I’m a bit unsure how I feel about this book at the start but the ending is phenomenal. From the beginning, the transition from what’s happening from the end of one chapter to the beginning of the next is extremely confusing. Jessa learns how to travel between realities and does so alone multiple times. My favorite is her meeting pirate Finn. This book is seriously great, there are TWO twist endings which have me seriously dying to read the next book. Just 13 more months to go! 

The Power

Now onto part 2. 

So recap on last book, Sethie gets Josie to the Covenant and Josie decides to train with Seth and Luke. Seth feels like he isn’t worthy of Josie, but she finally FINALLY!!! convinces him that yes, he is amazing cuz duh. Alarm bells go off in the Covenant a few days after Marcus realizes a whole group of sentinels go missing and SUPRISE, a bunch of sentinels being used as meat puppets by the shades come using down the Covenant doors. Luckily the half’s and pure’s fare better with shade attacks and actually survive once they leave their bodies, unlike the puny little mortals. Josie is taken and Seth and Apollo go to the rescue. Josie’s powers are awakes and she sends Hyperion to time out to think about what he’s done. The book ends with Josie and Sethie cuddling in the hospital.

Now onto book two. Yet another masterpiece. I seriously cannot praise Jennifer Armentrout enough for being such an amazing author. 

Seth seriously frustrated me in this book. His mentality about himself, even though he started thinking differently thanks to Josie in the last book, goes back to how it was before. He becomes a complete d-bag and Josie deserved way better than that. Then all is right again. It’s a whirlwind of emotions in this book. Alex and Aidan make their return, yay! Hercules makes an appearance, a new demigod is found, a friend dies, Seth goes god killer on a titan. This book is insanely action packed. 

The Return

Another Jennifer Armentrout 5 star read, amirightguys?! So Apollo is enlisting Seth into getting his daughter, a demigod named Josie, to the covenant so she can gear up with the other demigods to defeat the badass titans.

Seth, holy hell. Like that’s the only way I can describe him without bursting into flames. I absolutely ADORED him in the Covenant series so him having a spin-off series is the bomb! 

The chemistry between Seth and Josie is pretty steamy. This book is action packed just like the Covenant series was. Plus it’s loaded with plenty of cameos from all the characters you love. On to the next one! 

The Call

Woah was I pleasantly surprised by this book! It was not at all what I expected. The fae are portrayed as terrifying monsters. The imagery in this book is honestly phenomenal. The author paints a scary picture for the world Nessa and her friends live in. Honestly, I feel like the book ended on a cliff hanger, and I so hope the author plans on writing a sequel. This books storyline is so uniquely creative and action packed, with a touch of romance and a huge dose of horror. It makes me so thankful the call doesn’t exist in our world. 

Caraval

This book is pure magic! It will keep you so engrossed you forget about everything, I forgot about lunch earlier because I was caught up in it. 

Scarlett really evolves as a character throughout the book, along with Julian. Julian seems like a bad-boy influence but I feel like his attitude and outlook was exactly what Scarlett needed to be able to push away all her fears and grow as a person. 

Stephanie Garber weaves a unique and magical story. The mystery of it is toe- curling and the imagery will completely blow you away. And the twist ending 😱 I would honestly LOVE it if this book was appropriately made into a movie.

SYNOPSIS: 

Alien scientist David has dealt with disappointment his entire life, but failing to breathe life into the planet Mars is his greatest regret. Out of options and in need of a new home for their people, the alien Caretakers rekindle their plan to inhabit Earth. First they will have to eliminate the human race, including Jess, the only human David holds dear.

 

Humanity has one final chance at survival. David needs to emulate Earth’s precipitation on Mars. But the catalyst to make it rain lies in the fathomless depths of Earth’s ocean.

 

The clock is ticking down to humanity’s last hours as Jess and David face a world more alien than either of them can imagine. The sea hides secrets, but some secrets don’t want to be found.

REVIEW:

I am a part of this blog tour. This is the third book of the Fire In the Wood series. The plan for Davids kind to settle on Mars failed so now his kind seek to overtake the Earth, which means goodbye human race. David and Jess have to find a solution to make Mars rain so the caretakers will settle on Mars and leave Earth alone. I’ve usually had problems reading series straight through but this series is so action packed I couldn’t put it down. If you enjoyed Jennifer Armentrout’s Lux series you are sure to enjoy this series! 

 About Jennifer

Jennifer M. Eaton hails from the eastern shore of the North American Continent on planet Earth. Yes, regrettably, she is human, but please don’t hold that against her. While not traipsing through the galaxy looking for specimens for her space moth collection, she lives with her wonderfully supportive husband and three energetic offspring. (And a poodle who runs the spaceport when she’s not around.)

During infrequent excursions to her home planet of Earth, Jennifer enjoys long hikes in the woods, bicycling, swimming, snorkeling, and snuggling up by the fire with a great book; but great adventures are always a short shuttle ride away.

Who knows where we’ll end up next?
