Mini Reviews are for books I read recently but enough time has past to not remember key details of the story, or I felt there was not enough to talk about for a full in depth review. These will be short and give a general feel of the book in terms of recommendation.
Title & Author: Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: Young Adult- Mythology, Fantasy, Romance
Release Date: April 3rd 2012
Series: Covenant #2
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Description: 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.
This book packed a powerful punch. I enjoyed all aspects of it except- the typos. This one seemed to have more than the first. A lot more than I would be happy to pay for.
I’m super happy to see Alex actually giving Seth a chance, he’s quickly becoming my favorite character. His bad boy, sarcastic genius is all things amazing and I have a soft spot for royal pain in the asses. Lots of crying involved with this book. There was a lot of plot twists with this one, guess we finally find the chart topper for what makes Half-Bloods better than Pures…but at cost. Be prepared, this one is a emotional roller-coaster. So much crying.
Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books are so addicting and easy to pick up/follow I highly recommend almost all of her works. This book contains a lot of grammatical errors and typos so be forewarned.
