Overview

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.

BONUS: The e-book edition of Pure contains a bonus scene from Seth's point-of-view.

    People.....

    Hey can you stop EXPLAINING THE WHOLE THING in your comments, but clearly Aiden is the bad one from the thing the oracle said to Alex. Pfft come on....u wouldnt EXPECT it to be Aiden. Even though he wont say it, he loves Alex, but Aiden will be the bad one. Considering the fact that Seth would flat out kill a pure for her, he is too loyal for Jennifer to just screw up Seth's personality and the "connection". But nothing is certain, just gotta wait and read Deity and Apollyon (the next books)

    WOW!

    Hmm, what to say? It was riveting and i couldn't put it down, but i wish Alex would remember her prophecies more and stop acting so stupid (sometimes), and seth, what can i say? I was starting to like him, then i saw him kinda lead her astray (subtlely). But i must say it was hard to put down and i can't wait for the next book.

    Great Series!!

    I am floored I didn't know about this series before now. Both the 1st (HalfBlood) and this 2nd book have had me on the edge from front to back. This book had my stomach in knots, so angry., then laughing, then sad. Love it. As far as team? I would say I'm gunning for Seth theres just something about a bad boy that finally meets the girl that rocks his boat! And he seems to like Alex from any angle and it seems more then just the Appoyon connection. Aiden is annoying contiually stringing her along knowing he could get her in big trouble. I just feel he has some thing up his sleeve. A good book for all ages. This is a great paranormal and although it's rates YA I'm in my 40s and am liking it. It's not unbarably "teenish".

    It was awesome!

    Wow. Just..wow. I loved it. Everything's so deliciously complicated. I got the ebook version and that had a scene from Seths's perspective as well. I really liked seeing a bit of what Seth thinks.

    Awaited Sequel Finally Here

    Oh MY... what can I say about this book? Ok... get a grip..( coughs ) Well. Seth is my hero. Aiden is, I can't even say. And Alex is the protagonist that every book wants. Strong, clever, and smart, but not afraid to speak her mind ( Maybe she needs to work on that )
    OKAY I WILL NOT TALK ABOUT THE BOOK AND RUIN IT TO U
    Okay making things in caps doesn't help convince me at all.
    Well in this novel Alex still kicks butt, but at the Convenient, things are changing. And a certain SOMEONe is changing. Aiden is drawing away, and Seth is getting closer. Alex is getting new powers thrown her way. Seth can feel what Alex is feeling because of the bond ( The bond is something I am very glad the author decided to put that in ) This book makes my laugh out loud. Cry and want to throw the book at the wall. Well U SHOULD TOTALLY Buy it. Its the awaited sequel and does not disappoint. U will fall head over feels.

    Great Book!

    I waited what seemed like forever to read this book and was not let down. It was just as much of a page turner as Halfblood, the first book in the series! I would highly recommend this! I just love Jennifer L. Armentrouts style of writing, it the perfect balance of action and romance and she cracks me up!

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

    Seth is great, Aiden is great, and Alex is a firecracker!

    Wow, things get kind of heated a bit in this one. You throw in Seth, who is supposed to be Alex’s other half, yet she still loves Aiden, the forbidden one. Throw in a summons to the council and plots to destroy her because of what she is, and Alex’s life just can’t get more messed up.

    I like Seth. I really do, he’s a bit of an ass, but I like my fictional men a little like that. In all honesty, it really does seem like the only person outside of himself he cares for is Alex. The different personalities that JLA can create astound me sometimes. Although I do wished Aiden and Alex’s relationship would go a bit faster, but to be honest, it was perfectly done to keep us aching for it. This is definitely another ‘stay up all night just to finish one more chapter’ type of book. 5 stars!

    Really, I have been thinking on this. If they made every book into a movie, everyone would be happy. Have you seen the twilght, the harry potter, percy jackson, and (soon to be in 2015) tiger's curse. Now every time a book is made in to a movie it sells. So, why not this book?
