Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout Blog Stop

Pure (Covenant, #2)
There is need. And then there is Fate...

Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her.
When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon... and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude... or killing her.

When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

My Review
Pure was PURELY AMAZING! I do not know where to begin with this review so I am going to trcy and reign it in so I do not spoil it for people who have not read it. I absolutely love this series and how it is turning out.

Pure starts where Half Blood ended. Alex is still trying to come to grips with the death of her mother and the fact that she is the Appollyon. She also has to deal with her feelings towards Aiden who is a pure blood who is not allowed to mix with someone who is mixed. Take all this and the start of a new school year and man oh man is Alex on edge.

The one good thing in Alex's corner is Seth. He is the other Appollyon making it hard on Alex because she has to work twice as hard as anyone else. She has to train with Seth so he can catch her up on fighting skills in order to protect herself and others from the daimons. She is still training with Aiden but both he and Seth agree she needs more training because she is behind in her fighting skills.

Pure is EPIC ...EPIC... man Alex is such a strong girl in this book because she and Aiden go through a lot and she will sacrafice a lot as well as Aiden and the two of them will go down a bumpy road but in the end it is for the best. Seth is always there to support her and he is there to be her friend or anything else she needs. He has made it no secret that he cares for her and wants to be with ehr but her heart belongs to someone else.

Alex will lose someone very close to her and that will cause her pain. She has to fight to stay out of trouble which is easier said than done. As we all know from the last book she has some hard core enimies but she will kick butt and prevail because she is a strong woman. Lea and Jackson of course mess with her but Jackson gets his just tehehehe you will have to read the book to see what I am saying. So I don't want to ramble on so I am going to end this review with a song that reminds me of Alex and Aiden and Alex and Seth. Happy Reading everyone!

Favorite Quotes:
“Ever since I’ve met you, I’ve wanted to break every rule.” Aiden turned away, the muscles in his neck tensing. He sighed. “You’ll become the center of someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth.”

“Do you know why a heart lays claim? Survival. That heart lays its claim to ensure survival of its kind.”

“I guess there were two types of people in the world, those who sat around a fire, staring into the flames, and those who started the fire.

Seth and I started the fire, and then we danced around it.”

“No one is like you, Alex."

I grinned. "I'll take that as a compliment."

"It is." He nudged me again, and my grin gew into another ludicrous smile- the kind Caleb gave Olivia when they weren't tearing each other's heads off. "You're incredibly intelligent, Alex. Funny and..."
"Pretty?"
"No, not pretty."
"Cute?"
"No."
I frowned. "Well, then."
Aiden's laugh sent shivers through me. "I was going to say 'stunning.' You're stunningly beautiful.”

So here is the great part I am giving away two copies of Pure. All you have to do is comment on whether or not your Team Aiden or Team Seth and leave your e-mail address so I can contact the winner. This contest is only for The U.S

I am team Aiden. He is loving and understanding.

Tee said...

J.A. commented I didn't read the review because I'm always afraid of spoilers. There a big no-no for someone who rarely even reads blurbs in case I stumble across something I'd rather not know prior to reading. Although I'm truly, truly gutted the giveaway isn't open to UK residents (because I so seriously neeeeeed to read it), I understand the dilemma over the postage costs. Good luck to everyone else who enters.

Danmark said...

I loved this story from beginning to end... even knowing what the outcome will be. Even then, you're still hoping that Jennifer has something up her sleeve, that she'll surprise you some way and be like JUST KIDDING! And even seeing the ending coming, it doesn't soften the blow because Jennifer has a way of making you fall in love with each and every character she writes.
