Review: Pure by Jennifer L Armentrout


Pure (Covenant, #2)


Title: Pure 
(Covenant #2)
Author: Jennifer L Armentrout

Summary:
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.

Review:
Pure starts immediately after the end of Half-Blood. You continue to follow Alex, as she tries to deal with all the things that happened in the first book.  She still cares deeply for aiden, but it is still forbidden. She and Seth begin to grow closer, while the Council is trying to turn her into a servant (because of the risk she poses) The daimens are getting closer to trying to attack. And to top it all off, the gods sent Furies (as statues) to each Covenant school in case the Council cannot control the Daimon problem.
The book is non-stop action and adventure.

The main plot in this one is preparing Alex to have her testimony in front of the Council. But their main goal is not to actually hear her testimony, bt rather put her away bec they fear her. She and Seth grow a lot closer in this book, as her training is now split between Aiden and Seth.

I normally don’t like triangles at all. But I feel that they are bound to happen in most books these days. I don’t dislike Seth. I mean, he is arrogant and rude most of the time, but he is really there for alex when a lot of bad things happen to her. (namely one HUGE thing where something really bad happens to one person. I wont tell you though, bec I don’t wanna spoil it.) but he is there for her. And you can tell he starts to really care for her.

Since I am team Aiden, I don’t care as much about her growing relationship with Seth though, bec Aiden is just pure awesomeness!! And even though you can tell he cares deeply for her, he wont be with her bec of the law.  Which is heart breaking and eerily reminiscent of New Moon. (which is funny bec she even bashes Stephanie Meyer a bit in this book. I liked Twilight, but I still laughed at that scene anyways)

She is almost ready to be the second Appolyon.. and I guess they need to figure out a way to stop the Daimons from attacking.

Overall- awesome book with non stop action, kickass fight scenes, and swoon worthy romance!
