There is need. And then there is Fate...MY THOUGHTS:
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.
(summary taken from Goodreads)
I think it's an understatement to say that Jennifer L. Armentrout has taken this world by storm! First she stunned everyone with Half-Blood, then she took our breath away with Obsidian. Now there's another huge explosion where I admit that I have Pure is the best one yet!
There are no words to describe how fantastic Jennifer L. Armentrout is at toying with your emotions! I wanted to laugh and cry and pull my hair out. She managed to hook me on from the first page, blindfold me, then strap me onto a roller coaster that would not let go. Even if I despised Greek mythology (which is the opposite of true!), I would've loved this book anyways because of how breathtakingly twisting and original everything about it was!
Alex, our half-blooded heroine, has to be one of the best, kick-ass, snarky, and totally fun characters I've ever read about! You do not want this girl on your opposing team. She's equal parts strength and vulnerability that make her as easy to admire as she is to connect with.
The romance was pure and absolute perfection! ♥ Somehow, even as I was falling deeper in love with Aiden (the forbidden pure-blood), Seth managed to wedge his way into my fictional-boy-filled heart. Between all the twists that occur, you don't know what to think! Then there is The Pool Scene. And you may never breathe again.
Intensely gripping and action-packed from the start, Pure is undoubtedly one of the best sequels I've ever read! It easily makes my favourites list and leaves me craving for more. If you haven't started this series yet, what are you waiting for? ;)
BUY or BORROW?: This should not be a question. Or if you have to ask anything, it should be BUY or BUY? because this is one amazing novel that you must have on your shelf!
