Pure by Jennifer Armentrout Book Review

Pure (Covenant, #2)
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.

Jennifer Armentrout is an amazing author, so I was really excited to continue the Covenant series with Pure. It turned out to be such an amazing, action-packed book. 

In Pure, there are a lot more daimon attacks occurring. At the same time, the Council isn’t happy with Alex. Furthermore, Alex doesn’t know where she stands with Aiden and is starting to like....Seth?

I really love all the characters in Pure. Alex is such a brave person who always takes action and I thought she really grew as a character throughout the book. For the guys, I used to be on Team Adrian, even though I didn’t know that much about Seth. However, in Pure, Seth was amazing! I always seem to prefer the less serious guy who just has more fun in books. Seth and Alex were a lot similar, but I really loved how protective Seth was of Alex and how much he seemed to care for her. He also really lets her in and he’s just an overall funny person. For Adrian, he’s a good guy, but I just didn’t really like him as much. In Pure, you really get to see a lot more of Seth. 

Also, there were so many twists and turns throughout the book. A lot of new things about the Covenant and the Council were revealed. Their was a ton of action and romance in the book. Pure was extremely fast-paced and it was an overall amazing book.

I loved Pure and I’d give 4 out of 5 flowers. I’m looking forward to Deity :)


  1. I said the excact same thing about Seth and Alex! They are so alike. And I used to be Team Adrien, but when I read this book I flipped to Team Seth. But I've read the third book, and after that I'm totally Team Adrien again. Awesome review!!! :)
