*ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.*
I haven’t cried this much since The Fault in our Stars. Sometimes, you finish a book and rarely think of it again; but this series will stick with me for a very long time. I felt so invested in Josie and Seth’s story after watching them develop into characters I admire.
You know how sometimes books have these really obvious cookie cutter endings? Well, put your seat belt on, The Prophecy will take you for a ride through the Rockies. The good kind, but dear Baby Jesus, it is painful. Like, throw you off a cliff and then pick you back up, throw you off again, get bit by a few sharks, and then be rescued type of painful. But ultimately relieved, if not a little scarred.
Not only did I cry my heart out, I laughed my butt off, and blushed my cheeks off. Be prepared for loads of sexy time. Seth and Josie are to the point where their love is not questioned, and the major focus is on the state of the world, which is in a slight form of dystopia (love this element). I saw NO WAY OUT for the Army of Awesome, which kept me on my toes until the very last pages. I’m still blown away by the twist the story took.
So. We laughed, we cried, but did we learn anything!? YES. The Prophecy tackled sexism, feeling insecure, equal rights, racism, and so much more. The world needs this book, it is written in a language that most will relate to, through curse words. Sounds strange, right? But a message this deep needs a ‘fuck’ or two. Because you can still be philosophical and all that jazz while cursing like Seth. I would say “curse like a sailor”. But no, It’s curse like Seth.
What’s It All About?
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….
