"Pure" by Jennifer L. Armentrout


SERIES: Covenant #2

PUBLISHER: Spencer Hill Press
GENRE: YA Paranormal
SOURCE: Publisher
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository

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 showdawn 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 I finished "Pure" all I said was: Un-freaking-believable! But it was too soon to talk about it so, now that the release date is exactly a month away, I'm pretty sure you demand to know more about that statement, huh? Well, two are the main reasons. One, you can't imagine any event that happens and trust me, they all get you on a very emotional level. Two, the author made clearly difficult to root for a specific team...

I always been an Aiden girl and in the first instalment I couldn't stand Seth very much, to be completely honest I almost hated him... Then Spencer Hill Press sent me Pure ARC and it was the beginning of a big, huge battle with myself... Believe me when I say that my heart never left Aiden for a minute, but gosh if my body responded to Seth every second! Mix a constant flirting and a strong sensuality together and you can see a third of what I saw in Seth. I can't stop having chills because of him, especially thanks to all the OMG-do-you-want-to-kill-me-with-those-scenes!? Dear Jennifer, how dare you letting me dream of Seth like this? *sigh* Anyway, my love for Aiden is always there and the fact that I giggle like an idiot just at the thought of him it's a strong proof of how much power this amazing character has on me and yes, I would dare to say on all of you as well, girls!

The whole book is captivating, funny, sensual, full of action, emotional and if I was in love with "Half-Blood", with this second instalment it was totally "Pure" passion!
