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!

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?

Genesis Girl

Synopsis- Eighteen-year-old Blanca has lived a sheltered life. Her entire childhood has been spent at Tabula Rasa School where she’s been protected from the Internet. Blanca has never been online and doesn’t even know how to text. Her lack of a virtual footprint has made her extremely valuable and upon graduation Blanca, and those like her, are sold to the highest bidders. Blanca is purchased by Cal McNeal, who uses her to achieve personal gain. But the McNeal’s are soon horrified by just how obedient and non-defiant Blanca is. All those mind-numbing years locked away from society have made her mind almost impenetrable. By the time Blanca is ready to think for herself, she is trapped. Her only chance of escape is to go online.

Review- I love dystopians. I love them so much I devour them. The premise of this book is so unique. Most of the other dystopians I’ve read have very similar storylines, this one is just so different. It really seems like a plausible future for our world, where internet access is already a huge part of our lives and already for us it would be utter chaos if we had to go without it. The main character, Blanca, has lived a sheltered life so shes never been online and has absolutely no virtual foot print. Which makes her extremely valuable in her society. Once she graduates the Vestal society, she is auctioned off to the highest bidder. She is purchased by a middle aged man named Cal McNeal. Just like that she is a geisha, meaning she was sold to an individual rather than a company which is seen as less than. This book is seriously a roller coaster you need to experience. I REALLY  REALLY enjoyed this book and Jennifer Bardsley is an incredibly talented author.

Emotions- Arnulfo Cantarero

Emotions is a book about 22 year old, Jason Ariaz who is genetically and cybernetically enhanced. He is an extraterrestrial being who has a thinking computer in his brain. When he landed on earth he and his thinking computer were damaged, so now he has to go on living less than the rest of his kind. His kind are on a mission to gain emotions, as they have none. If Jason succeedes, he will be the first of his kind to do so in 200,000 years. Given that his thinking computer is damaged, Jason has emotional episodes and is actually capable of holding friendships with humans, albeit awkwardly.

The book begins with a prologue, followed by a chapter on what happened 12 hours prior to the prologue, then follows up with the start of the beginning for Jason Ariaz where he learns English, and manners thanks to a friendship with a classmate named Stephanie. Along with experiencing typical kid stuff, like getting into your fathers liquor cabinet. By the way, incredibly jealous of his ability to learn a language in ONE NIGHT!  

I don’t want to go into too much detail and spoil the book for you (definitely check it out!), but Emotions is a really good sci-fi read, I got utterly absorbed in it and binge read it! It has 262 pages, so it’s a pretty average sized book. Some parts seem wacky and a bit cheesey, like Jason’s internal dialogue with Computer during his fight with John. But I feel it fit really well with the different ages of Jason. Plus most sci-fi is a bit cheesey (Mystery Science Theater 3000, anyone?). 

The characters are great. The storyline was very unique. It was a very enjoyable read. If you enjoy young adult sci-fi definitely give it a read!
