There is need. And then there is Fate.
Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when
"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.
I think I have died and gone to heaven. This book made me feel every emotion as it created a love-hate relationship with me. Simply put, this book was brilliant. Pure, is an amazing sequel to an even better novel. It met all of my expectations at every page and left me completely and utterly satisfied.
Anyone who has read other books by Jennifer Armentrout will know how popular her books are. Especially the Lux series with the beautiful Daemon and now Covenant with the sexy
Okay lets talk a little bit about Aiden, because I can't help myself. I don't know how to say this but he is perfection. I mean after reading Obsidian and meeting the infuriatingly sexy Daemon, I didn't think I would find another character to crush on. But boy was I ever wrong! Aiden is perfect. He is sweet, sexy, smart, and can make any girl melt into a puddle of mush (guilty)! I adored him in Half-Blood, with his perfect control, his sweet attitude towards Alex, and his beautiful rare smiles. And I loved him even more in Pure. The tension between him and Alex is sizzling and makes you spontaneously com-bust.
The plot is fascinating. There's a new threat at the Covenant and Alex is in the center of it all. Because you know she's supposed to be some supernatural electrical outlet who happens to be the God-Killer. And her other half, Seth just happens to be following her around where ever she goes. So when daimons infiltrate the Covenant it's up to Alex and Seth to save everyone from this threat to protect their family and friends. Even if it means Seth has to sacrifice Alex to save everyone from the gods. But Aiden won't let that happen even if it means he has to sacrifice himself to save Alex. As the tension rises and new secrets are revealed, Alex will learn who her real enemies are and who her true friends are.
Overall, Pure is a gripping and exhilarating second novel in this popular covenant series. It was an emotional roller-coaster ride I wouldn't mind getting back on and kept the reader entertained through out the book. I fell in love with the characters and I can't wait to continue reading this series. I am definitely a true fan of Jennifer Armentrout. She came out of no where and blew my mind.
