Review: 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.

I think the hardest review to write are when you are in love with a book. What else is there to say? I loved seeing more of the relationship between Alex and Seth, the banter between them always made me laugh. Then, there were parts where I very nearly cried. Obviously I can't say what... that would spoil everything. Seth was always there for her even when she didn't want him there. Aiden...I don't know what to say about him. He did and said the sweetest things possible, but would it ever work out between them? But the ending of the book makes me question everything...he risked everything for her. That's has to count for something, right? One of my favorite parts of this book was when Alex dressed up to go to a ball. The looks on Seth and Aiden's faces were priceless. Oh, and Minister Telly...I wish it were possible to punch a character from a book. Also, the end of the book contained a segment in Seth's point of view of my favorite scene at the ball. It was interesting to read his insecurities when in Alex's point of view, nothing fazes him. After reading the first book, I didn't think it could get much better. I was definitely proven wrong! (Words you will not near me say often). 

Also, today happens to be Kayla and her boyfriend's one year anniversary, so HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! I hope you two grow old together. (:

Book Nerd and Proud,
