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.
This review contains spoilers if you haven't read the first book in the series.
If I thought Half-Blood was good, I don't even know how to describe the awesomeness that took place in Pure! Enticed by the continuation of Alex's story, I laughed and cried my way through the second book in the Covenant Series.
Everyone knows that Alex's mother had been a Daimon, and when things start happening around school, she's the one who takes the biggest hit. If that wasn't enough, now she has to make it through a visit to the New York Covenant for the big council meeting and someone is set on destroying her.
I was Team Aiden in Half-Blood. I'm not sure when it happened in Pure, but at some point I switched teams. Yes, Aiden can show Alex he cares away from the prying eyes of onlookers and he has continuously said that he can't have anything with with her because of the Breed Order, but in Pure he just irked me. Where Aiden was failing, Seth was picking up the pieces, always making himself available to Alex. Granted she didn't want him around, but he was, for once, worried about someone besides himself. I grew to love him.
Pure was just as amazing as Half-Blood. There were twists I didn't expect and scenes that made me cry my eyes out. Alex was still her funny self and Seth put a smile on my face. My jaw dropped and I was in disbelief, even when I saw certain events coming. I never wanted to put Pure down.
Overall, this book was fantastic. If you enjoyed Half-Blood, Pure will knock your socks off.
