Goodreads Summary: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.
Pure has everything a book needs: action, suspense, romance, and comedy. It left me craving for more.
I still love Alex. She's a greatcharacter, and, like I said in my review of Half-Blood, she's not perfect. Even if she's not, Alex doesn't deserve all the pain she's gotten. But she's strong all the way through.
I found out more about Seth. Well, sort of. He's still a mystery, but I really like him. He and Alex have a special sort of connection. I like all the sides of him. Also, Seth was there for Alex when Aiden wasn't.
Speaking of Aiden, I got angry at him, sometimes. However, he's the sort of guy you can't stay angry at. He's an admirable character and I like the lengths he takes to make sure the things- or ones- he loves stays safe.
The plot of the story was a definite page turner. It was so fast-paced and action-packed.There are also so many twists and shockers. I think my jaw dropped at least twenty times. There's also a lot of heat between the characters.
I can't say to much, or it will spoil everything, but I think this book was better than the first. Now, I'm off to the next book.
