Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout
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.
Why did I pick this?
I love this series. Plain and simple. It's become one of my utmost favorites. I'm lucky (so very lucky) to have a best friend who is also a blogger that happened to have an ARC of this book. She made one of my dreams come true by sending this to me to read. The day after I received it, I read it......in one sitting. So thank you to my one of my best blogger friend Andrea at The Bookish Babe for loaning it to me. It was so awesome of you to do that. :-) You complete me.
What did I think?
I devoured this book. Seriously. I loved Alex when I first got introduced to her in Daimon and she's wriggled her way into my heart throughout the entire series.
This book picks up right where it left of in Half-Blood and does not stop. Since this book hasn't technically been released yet, I'll try to keep the spoilers to myself ;-)
Now, I'm not sure if you're Team Aiden or Team Seth but you will definately not be disappointed for either. There is plenty of both to keep you satisfied. I, personally, am a Team Aiden kind of gal. What can I say? I'm a sucker for those gray, gray eyes. But after reading this I'm in a tough spot because Seth really does come through in this book. Which is really nice.
Prepare yourself for some action, romance, and yes heartbreak. This was one emotional ride for me. My heart felt so constrcited throughout the entire book. I was sitting on the edge of my seat (or on my bed as it were since I read most of it in bed) the whole time. No joke, I stayed up until 3:40 am finishing it. Yes, I had to work the next day at 8. But is was so worth it.
Everything that you read in Half-Blood is maximized in Pure. Everything is.....MORE. MORE action, MORE suspense, MORE romance, and MORE heartbreak. Deity is seriously going to rock my face off. Jennifer did such an amazing job for this book. She has a fantastic way with words that make you feel. I absolutely adore books that do that to you. No matter if they make you cry or squeel.....I just love to be able to feel it all. Jennifer does that. In spades.
Favorite Quotes: (non-spoilery ones ;-) )
I shot Aiden a defiant look. "Let's go. Come on, Seth.Let's go continue our Lovers' quarrel." Pushing off the wall, Seth arched a brow. "Yes, my love, that sounds absolutely fantastic. Don't forget to grab a dagger so you can poke my eyeball out."
