Book Review: Pure by Jennifer L. ArmentroutJacket Blurb:
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.Thoughts:
I really loved this book. I think I liked it better than Half-Blood. We really get to see a different side of Alex. And Seth's character is developed more – and he is one to love. Although, I'm team Aiden all the way.
There really isn't a lot I can write without spoiling some part of the plot. There is so much going on the in the story. It kept me glued to the pages. When I wasn't reading I was afraid I was missing something – the characters were that real.Ms. Armentrout is really on top of her game!Violence:
