Review: Pure (Jennifer 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.....

People always assume that "sequels" can never be as good as the first...well in this case..they are so wrong! Pure is just full of amazingness...from intense action, to sadness, to romance....i mean where to begin? well enter Apollyon, Aiden, and Alex (hmmm just noticed they all started with "A's") and a fantastic love triangle...Im not sure who I want to pull for...hmm..the main female character Alex is fascinating..She is determined, strong, and able to face anything that is thrown in her path and let me tell you...there is ALOT...She faces so much hardship and pain and somehow comes out even better...This story is a fantastic addition to the Covenant trilogy and leaves me longing for more...If you want supernatural with none of the blood and gore of zombies and vampires then this is your story...I truly enjoyed it and cant wait for the finale!!
