Pure (Covenant #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: Pure (Covenant #2) 
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Pages: 330
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Expected Release: April 3, 2012

Pre-Order: Amazon|Barns & Noble| Book Depository

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: 

This has to be the BEST BOOK EVER!! I LOVED this book!!! Jennifer has done it again, and its better than the first one! Pure had romance that made you root for Alex and made your body feel tingly inside waiting for that special thing to happen. Seth also surprises you with his funny charm and charisma that he opens up himself to Alex. I was so torn at which one I wanted Alex to be with. The Zoo scene, Pool scene left me like this O_O because my heart was pounding like crazy!! Jennifer's writing is the best addiction ever!! It was at a great pace, left me wanting more!

The surprises along the way had me in tears that I was grabbing tissues because it was unpredicted and unknowing due to the amount of love I have for this book. If I do cry in the book, it means that its a winning read. Armentrout will leave you wanting more of her writing because its addicting, you will fall back in love with every character except the Daimons. The process of what was happening was mind blowing!! The scenes with Alex, Aiden and Seth would leave me breathless, and the tension between Aiden and Seth was soo funny.  Alex is still kicking butt, and is my favorite heroine. Aiden is one of those characters that you really want to get to know. Aiden is still forbidden unfortunately but you can still feel the tension between after what happened in Half-Blood. This love traingle is getting more interesting after getting to know more of Seth and Aiden. I still love Aiden, but Seth was growing on me. 

This book has got to be my favorite of all Covenant books for the moment, and I think Deity will leave me the same way because knowing Jennifer Armentrout's novels, she will leave me with a cliffhanger. I am still suffering from JLA withdrawal!!  If you havent read Half-Blood I recommend you buy it now because you dont know what you are missing. If you give me any of Jennifer's books I would be in happyland. Now I am excited to read Deity because that ending in Pure was like OMG I need the next one now!! 

Now I will leave you with some of my fave quotes: 

“Now, I brought us a movie to watch, the one that has sparkly vampires in it. I thought you’d
be down for that.” (121 e-ARC)

"He stalled, silver eyes dropping to my shoulder. I could almost feel it in the air—the primal
jealousy, his raw urge to physically remove Seth’s hand." (242 e-ARC)

“Well that’s brave for a little Apollyon in training." (103 e-ARC)

Be sure to check out the e-copy on kindle because it has a POV from Seth!! I already read it and fell in love all over again with Seth and Aiden!!

  2. The Twilight references had my laughing. Caleb had me crying. I finished it last night and I'm working on my review now. JLA continues to out-do herself. Is it November yet!?

  5. Dawson and Daemon may share looks but their personalities couldn't be different. Daemon feels protective over his brother and sister. He knows the Arum lurk in the shadows and want his powers. Bringing humans into the mix adds to the danger as Dawson will soon find out, proving Daemon right.
