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...more

First off can I say "Damn Lea, how many times do you have to get your nose broken by Alex to understand, that she is not the one to be messed with!"

YES!!! BAD ASS Alex Andros, is at it again! Kicking more Ass in the sequel to the Covenant series! The story starts off where we left it and that was more training with the Bland but HOTT Aiden and the Snarky and Whitty Apolyon Seth. Alex's ultimate goal in life right now:She must find the power within her and try to stay alive until her eighteenth...more

This is a spoiler-free review (which was sort of painful to write)

4.5 stars

I died a little as I read this. From joy, sadness, excitement, frustration. This book made me feel everything as it played tug of war with my heart, but it was completely and utterly brilliant. Pure is, without a doubt, a remarkable sequel to an equally remarkable debut novel. It met my expectations, even surpassed them in places, and gave me the deliciously satisfying follow-up to Half Blood that I was just craving. In o...more

*edit* July 2012*. Sigh. Eff it. I really didn't want to have a star rating on this book because of my mixed feelings (good and bad) but since I'm not risking having yet another review sent to the void, I will award a star rating.

Original Review

Argh. I am so frustrated right now. No matter how entertaining this book is (and it's a great read), I feel dirty for reading it. Blatant copying should not be rewarded. This is even worse than fan fic to me because no one's getting their efforts credite...more

Re-reading 30/9/13:

The battle over Alex was just as hot funny as I recalled!! Seth and Aiden are both adorable, and the witty banter is definitely a highlight of this wonderful series.

Original Review

“You know what?” His breath was warm against my cheek. “There are a lot of stupid things to do, but I really want to do the stupidest thing possible.”
“What’s that?”
“I want to kiss you.”


Seth:



Aiden:

Everytime Alexandria kicked ass:

:There be spoilers here. Be warned!:

There is nothing quite like the experience when reading an Armentrout novel.

My Symptoms included;

-Stomach tied in a knot so tight it refuses to loosen till the very last sentence.
-Continuously released a breath I didn't realize I was holding.
-Felt the need to want to rip someones heart out and/or bang my head against a wall (depending on the scene).
-Cried frustrated tears of pure agony or annoyance.
-Glared at the words on the page so hard that I could alm...more

**************CAUTION, BELOW CONTAINS SPOILERS************

I went into this book wanting to like it and enjoy it. And I did, I loved it. The tension had me on edge. Seth was amazing and I loved him. Aidan was kind of annoying but I loved him too. I really really wanted to read this book without constantly having the sinking feeling that I’ve already read it before, except written by a different author and with a different name (Vampire Academy). The second book of the Half Blood series was rumo...more

“Ever since I’ve met you, I’ve wanted to break every rule.” Aiden turned away, the muscles in his neck tensing. He sighed. “You’ll become the center of someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a b*tch on this earth.” – Aiden

My initial thoughts after reading Pure were wow, Jennifer L. Armentrout is a genius and now, several months later I was definitely right, because it is the best sequel I have EVER read!

This time around we see Alex training with both Aiden and Seth. Aiden is...more

I think, the whole book just made me forget how to breathe.

It's just perfect , okay? IT SIMPLY HAD EVERYTHING IN IT. Pure managed to make me laugh, cry, and feel hot all at the same time. And I am not even kidding.

Alex, here, made me love here even more. She's indeed one of the coolest female fictional characters I've ever known. I just like her and I believe she deserves all the happiness in the world. No more pain, please? But yeah, we all know that it's the hardships that our characters have...more

MICHELLE'S REVIEW:

5 AWESOME SERIES STARS!!

I won a copy of the ebook of 'Pure' from Jennifer’s page , and I am just so happy I got to read it early. I did the Aiden St. Delphi Happy Dance when I received it. I had other priorities on the blog, but did I let that stop me reading it......I would like to say , yes....but...no....oh I held off for a few hours, then I peeked, then I thought just a few chapters won’t hurt.....then there was no stopping me. It was on!

There are few authors that put me in...more

4.5 stars!!

Armentrout is one of those authors you ponder over. Her skilled writing and magical imagination leave you with a deep respect and admiration.

Pure was another outstanding contribution to the Covenant series. You will get your share of the Oh-so-delicious, Aiden St. Delphi and Seth throughout as well as enough action to make you pull your knees up to your chest and grip tightly to those pages awaiting the next flip of the page. Since this is not released yet, I am simply going to tell...more

SUMMARY (50 words or less)

Man, this book blew my socks off. I was so into it and hardly wanted to put it down. I can’t say that a lot of things that happened in the book made me happy, but I can say that it was exciting. YAY! Can’t wait for the next!

This sequel there was little romance development with Aiden (the guy she is forbidden to be with). But with Seth (the guy Alex is fated to be with) I feel the growth in their friendship/relationship.

As much as I am Team Seth, you can feel who her heart truly belongs to. There was times my heart was hurting for Aiden and I really need to how this will work out for him and Alex.

I felt like the few scenes with Aiden were a bit repetitive. I like Alex as a heroine but after the end of book 1...more

PURE Excitement!!

What an absolutely great installment for the Covenant series! This is quickly becoming one of my favorites, right next to Morganville. Bold statement coming from me. Yes, I know. :) But, I was absolutely hooked the entire time, so there you go.

In Pure, Alex is not only battling her demons in the aftermath of her mom’s death, but also the Council’s impending trial over her involvement in the events that went down in Gatlinburg is weighing on her in a harsh way. She’s training har...more

Please do not read if you haven't read Half-Blood, as this will spoil some things in that book.

I completely love this second book in the Covenant Series.

We pick up with Alex back at the Covenant after she and Caleb survived their ordeal with the Alex's crazy daimon mother. Alex keeps having nightmares and trouble sleeping from all the horrible memories. The ability to make half-bloods into daimons that can go around undetected, looking no different than any other half-blood, has every one on e...more

Oh my dear lord! I neeeeeeeed mooooore. Noooooow!
So awesome :D
Oh, and team Seth FTW ;)

Review:
Oh boy! Words cannot express how much I am addicted to this series (along with anything else Jennifer writes).
As much as I liked Daimon and loved Half-Blood, Pure was even better. Sometimes novels have that second-book-syndrom or whatever it's called, when the sequel just isn't as good as the first book, but boy oh boy Pure doesn't suffer from it.
In this compelling sequel, Alex is faced with even more...more

This book was like opening a gorgeously wrapped Christmas present. You know the kind where someone sneaky gives you a HUGE box and you have to keep opening up smaller and smaller boxes. You are super excited and ready to know what secrets are inside. This book was like peeling back all the wonderful layers of wrapping paper, but I feel like a little gift was left in each box and when I finally reached that last box at the end, it did not dissapoint.

I have a confession to make: I did not read bo...more

Spoiler Free Review

I love Aiden, but I do love Seth too. The series has been out for some time and everyone is team Aiden. Had I known Seth would have such a presence in this series, I doubt I would have picked up the series because I can’t stand love triangles, BUT this isn’t a love triangle book.

I wouldn’t describe Pure as Seth pursuing Alex, but his character just has more of an occurrence. I am not fully “sold” on Seth, but I do like getting to know him better. He’s so different...more

Recommends it for: Paranormal Romance lovers/ YA readers/ those who do not want to waste time reading crappy books
She opened her eyes. "Is this real?"
"Very real." I brushed the soaked strands off her cheek, wondering if I was lying or not and if I should care if I was. "Angel, let me kiss you."

“You'll become the center of someone's world one day.
And he'll be the luckiest son of a bitch on this earth.”

WOW! PURE is as riveting as HALF-BLOOD! It's filled with unexpected twists, romance, danger, and a fantastically snarky main character. It's an honor to edit this series; Jennifer makes my job easy by writing such incredible books!

Be jealous; I got to read this a year before it'll be released. :P

Holy Freaking Crap. This sequel is so jam packed with awesomeness I don't even know where to start. It's amazing to the nth degree. Whoa! I'm going to shut up now before I spoil something but...yeah. Add this to your to-be-read list right now. You won't regret it!

Okay.

My cheeks hurt from smiling like a complete idiot for a weekend straight.

My chest hurts from constant chest pains--nearly having a heart attack because of the nonstop action and heartbreak.

My stomach hurts from laughing like a lunatic. Speaking of heart attacks, the laughter could be from the fact that the heart attack joke from Sanford and Son is mentioned--yes, SANFORD AND SON = Greatest Thing Ever. They just don't make shows like that anymore. Just sayin'.

And my head....oh, my head is in...more

My Summary:


Alex may have survived her Daimon "Mom's" evil designs for her, but someone forgot to tell her nightmares. The scene plays out over and over again making it impossible to sleep. That's a problem when you're training with the HOTTEST pure blood Sentinel out there, the one Alex was in bed with, the one Alex can't stay away from. Totally off limits, Aiden continues to train Alex but her lack of sleep is showing. Of course Seth would love to help Alex out with that little problem. With hi...more

5 SUPERB, ACTION PACKED, HEART STOPPING STARS!!

This series just gets better and better!



I fell in love with Half-Blood and wondered how it could get any better. OH MY GOD Pure just doubled the amount of love I have for this series. I cant stop thinking about it.

Alex is the most AMAZING, SASSY, KICKASS heroine ever.. Not once has she annoyed me yet. With the whole love triangle going on in this book I seriously thought I would be frustrated or annoyed but I wasn't, I think that was because I kno...more

Pure was PURELY AMAZING! I do not know where to begin with this review so I am going to trcy and reign it in so I do not spoil it for people who have not read it. I absolutely love this series and how it is turning out.

Pure starts where Half Blood ended. Alex is still trying to come to grips with the death of her mother and the fact that she is the Appollyon. She also has to deal with her feelings towards Aiden who is a pure blood who is not allowed to mix with someone who is mixed. Take all thi...more
Khanh (Kittens, Rainbows, and Sunshine)
Purely out of curiosity, I'm continuing on with what I feel like is a faint shadow of the Vampire Academy series. In this book, Alex continues on with her training, snarks off even more to Seth/her instructors/everyone in a position of power, despite knowing what's in store for her if she gets in further trouble (mindless servitude to Pures). The plot is also gaping with holes; several important plot points never got resolved in my mind. They were just presented, then seemingly forgotten about t...more

Omg...the cover!! *.* Did I say that my favourite colour is blue?? No, well it is.

Have you ever felt like you're going to cry and laugh at the same time? I feel that way right now.

I just don't know where to start this review. I want to say so much but I can't find the words. If you think that after Half-Blood this series can't be better, you're wrong. Trust me. Oh god, how much I want to turn back time and to slow down with this book. How am I supposed to survive until November??

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!

I fell in love. With this book and with one of the characters. I bet you can guess who. :)

First thing first,
