Goodreads Synopsis

 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.


Right after finishing Half-Blood a few days ago, I dove right into the second installment, expecting the action and general awesomeness to crank up. Not disappointed in that department at all. Alex is the sort of heroine I like - kickbutt, stubborn, daring. And words can't do complete justice to Aiden. :)

I'm not so sure about Seth, though. Sure, his personality is really compatible with Alex's,  but I still prefer Aiden. The only thing that made me shed a star out of Pure's rating is the whole Alex-and-Seth hanging out business. 

Remember the  similarities I pointed out between Half-Blood and Vampire Academy? All those similarities come to an end here, and now, there's no predicting what may happen in the plot next. The real action bloomed at the very end. And it  was beyond amazing. The end did a fantastic job in exciting me for the third insallment, Deity. You'll love it.
