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 t ...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

dare i say it!? this may be the one absolute isolated incidence where i dont mind a love triangle?! i dont love it, but i understand it and i dont mind it. so thats an improvement.

i definitely feel a focus change in this sequel, compared to the first book. while there is still action, this feels very character driven and its nice. its nice to get to know the characters more and establish their relationships/bonds with each other.

so while this definitely feels like a filler book in the series,
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.”

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

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).

"Ever since I've met you, I've wanted to break every rule."

Holy shit. That was awesome.
*massive deadly book hangover*

This book is crazy. Sad. Funny. Incredible. Perfect. Dreamy.

We don't see much of Aiden, but we do see a lot of Seth. And I'm not complaining.
Remember when I said that I found him irritating and then that I was beginning to like him? And that maybe I could have loved him as much as Aiden? YES. THE ANSWER IS YES. I DO LOVE HIM VERY MUCH.
I know he's a bad guy sometimes

'There were two types of people in this world, those who sat around a fire, staring into the flames, and those who started the fire.

Seth and I started the fire, and then we danced around it.'

This has got to be one of the best sequels to a book I've ever read. Was it better than the first book? Most definitely!

The characters and their roles have developed so much since the first book it's astonishing.

Alex is seriously like a sassy warrior princess in my opinion.

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

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

Pure is book two in the Covenant series by Jennifer Armentrout. I love writing my review right after I finish reading a book when my emotions are all still swirling. And right now, let me tell you, my emotions are all over the place.

What an amazing series the Covenant isJ I am really excited about every book which I read and it became sort of an addiction, because I literally can’t stop reading it. Jennifer is amazing and this ability of hers to mix romance with action and a dynamic plot is killing me!!

“Pure” is the second book from the Covenant series and although it was not as good as the first one, it had its moments of greatness that were fantastic and breath-taking, not to mention that I love Alex and Aiden as a couple

He smiled. "I know I do. I see it quite often. I just prefer your bed. It smells better."

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 character

I actually liked this one better than the first one! There was more action, and well, in this book we have more of Seth, yay! However I'm not giving this book 5 stars for several reasons:

- First, the love triangle. I strongly dislike love triangles, when a heroine finds herself in that situation, her inner-monologue becomes annoying and my eyes start hurting from rolling them so much.

- Second, Aiden. I don't know... I can't conne

This book was very good. It was a little similar to the Vampire Academy but I was surprised by everything that happened which is very good. I didn't like Aiden as much but then again he is just acting a certain way for the plot. There was an even larger amount of action in this book than in the first, especially at the end. It was so suspenseful and I was trying to read even faster with out skipping over anything important. There is a kind of cliffhanger just because a lot of things were left

Thrilling, full of action, page turning, fantastic, unpredictable read; I couldn't put it down.
I was sucked into the dynamics that was Alex, Aiden, and Seth. She can have Seth, she's expected to be with Seth but she loves Aiden. Her heart belongs to Aiden but the physical connection between her and Seth gets in her head, complicating things. The rivalry between Seth and Aiden was also quite entertaining.
However, the three of them together, kicked ass when it came to fighting daimons and standi

DNF @ 20%

I think, my taste just changed over the years. I've read the first book in this series a long time ago. I can't even remember most of what happened. I did remember liking the first book, though. After reading up to 20% of the book, it seems that this series doesn't interest me anymore. The appeal it had when I read it a few years before is no longer there, unfortunately.

PS: Is it just me, or is Alex in this book really annoying?

Pure is book two in the Covenant series. The action is magnified and the tension between Aiden and Alex is like a rubber band ready to snap. And there there is her "other half" Seth. Seth is always lurking around. He is like that presence that will always be there no matter how uncomfortable or happy it makes you. Alex is confused by the comfort she finds being with Seth. And yet, Aiden is all she truly wants.

I had other priorities on the blog, but did I let that stop me reading it......I would like to say , 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.
