“History is on repeat, and things didn’t go so well the last time. ”
Alexandria isn’t sure she’s going to make it to her eighteenth birthday–to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she’s a goner… and so is Aiden.
If that’s not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time “training”–which really is just Seth’s code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time–she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.
But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she’s caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed… and destroyed.
Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate…
There are no words to explain just how phenomenal this book is. The entire story was gripping from get to, and I just couldn’t stop reading! One of best’s techniques of the authors has, is that it makes you read the book until you finish it. If you don’t do that, it seems like you are suffocating. It is just a heart-stopping story!
Alex is about to turn 18 years old and she is caught between losing herself, and caught between Aiden and Seth. She is having a lot of trouble handling everything, especially with a lot of enemies trying to kill her. She is fighting to make it; she is full of sorrow and loss. Maybe she will lose herself after she Awakens. Alex must decide who she chooses and what path to take. Will she stay with Seth and help him become the God Killer? Or will she choose Aiden and fight for a love that is impossible to have without secrets? Will she change after she becomes the Apollyon?
A lot of questions and a lot of trouble for Alex in this story. I cried with her each time, I felt her constantly picking battles and getting tired. But is simply amazing how the author mange to make her grow throughout the stories. Alexandria is maturing, she recognizes the situations where she just has to let it go, and stop arguing all the time. Aiden is always there by her side, even if he tried to stay away, he can’t. He loves her and Alex loves him. Seth isn’t turning to what I hopped, but I got a feeling at the end of Pure, that he was hiding something ugly.
I was completely speechless throughout the entire book and without a doubt the best book I have ever read. The characters, suspense and action are indispensable in this story. I’m bowing towards Jennifer Armentrout, she is an amazing writer and has been capable to write lots of original stories.
