Alex is back and better than ever in Pure. She's training with Aiden to fight daimons (Aiden is aka as the very, very swoonworthy Instructor who she is forbidden to fall in love with. Why? He's a pure-blood and she's a half blood) and her destiny is just a hop, skip and a jump away. Seriously. She's going to be the next Apollyon, which is a god-killer. Pretty cool, right? What's even cooler is that the other Apollyon, and also her other half, Seth, might just be the next/other/alternate love of her life. Or is he? Somebody is trying to kill Alex before she becomes the Apollyon, there's an entire slew of Daimon attacks going on and Aiden is kind of giving her the cold shoulder. So not cool for a dude who was very into her just last summer.
Let's hope Alex can fight her way through all these problems. (Knowing her, I'm going to assume she'll do just fine.)
You would seriously think that there is absolutely no way that Jennifer L. Armentrout could keep her books so continually heart-pounding and entertaining, but guess what? This book is just as entertaining and witty as Half Blood. I adore Alex's sense of humor. I was laughing out loud and my brother was giving me all kinds of weird looks. It was awesome. Everything is fast-paced and Alex is one of those heroines that kicks butt on a regular basis. You know. Some people take their vitamins daily. Alex beats people up daily. There is nothing cooler than that. Profanity and a little too much canoodling (yes, that is a word. Believe it.) were 2 things I didn't like about the book but I have nothing else to comment on! Team Alex.... :)
