Book Review: Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Covenant #2
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Reading Level: YA
Genre: Paranormal/Mythology
Release Date: April 3rd 2012
Review Source: Spencer Hill Press
Available: Amazon

Summary: (from goodreads) 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.

Once again the team of creatives behind this series and its covers has nailed it. I love each cover that has been made for each of the books that have been released. There is something about that two-tones swirl that just pulls me in. Simple yet fascinating. That being said Jennifer has also done it again. I think I would read anything by Jennifer even if it was a menu. Jennifer is that Good no a better word would be Excellent. This series is one of my top favorites. I hope Jennifer has tons of story left in her and we don't see it end anytime soon.

Pure continues the story of "Alex" Alexandria and her life at covenant. Alex continues to train to become what she hopes would be a decent fighter. She is getting trained by the best which include Aiden and Seth. I don't know how she can mange to concentrate with those two swoon-worth boys. Poor Alex has her plate full. She has to deal with her mother's past, who wants her dead, the boy she loves and the one she is fated to be with. How can a girl have any fun, right? What will happen to Alex and the covenants when the Furies show up? I can't disclose anymore without spoiling the story and all its awesome-ness. 

I know many of you are familiar with Jennifer's series, it has spread like wild fire in the wide world web. This is a series that doesn't need much pimping out, it does it all by itself. Just in case though you are that 1% that has no clue about this series, take note of the author and the books and pick them up. Jennifer's writing is one of the most addicting ones out there to read. You get sucked in and can't pull away until you are done. Each of her books have kept me up late hours at night reading. Simply said this is one author that should be on every body's reading list.


  1. LOVE THIS, I too am a MASSIVE fan of Jennifer's and I had to laugh when you said you would read a menu written by her because I would too LOL. I can't wait to get my hands on this book!

  2. I loved Pure, it was my first 5/5 star book in 2012. It was amazing and now Jennifer has me falling for both Aiden and Seth. I have no clue who I like more due to the events in Pure. The story was beautiful, romantic and gripping.

    Thanks for the great review.

  3. I am a super JLA fan. I read Half-Blood right when it came out. (When it was only available as an ebook) I fell in love instantly. I have loved everything she has written so far. I have an ARC of Pure and I am going to be reading it very soon. Awesome review!!

  4. I cannot wait to read this! Maria has my copy. Think i might have to hunt her down now lol

    Love your review!!!!
