Pure Tour Stop – Excerpt

Posted by

I’m quite certain you have heard about Jennifer Armentrout’s covenant series, if not – we’re changing that now! Today I’m happy to gave the Pure blog tour stop by to show you all a fun excerpt from this highly anticipated sequel to Half-Blood!

Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series: Covenant, #2
Release date: April 3rd, 2012
by Spencer Hill Press

Goodreads / Purchase 

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.

The Covenant series so far:

Excerpt of Pure – The first 100 words
“I started at the ceiling of the gymnasium, little black splotches dancing in frong of me.  Man, my butt hurt.  No surprise, as I’d landed on it about fifty times already.  The only thing not buring with pain was my face; it was on fire for an entirely different reason.

“My Gutter Fighting class wasn’t going well.

“This style of hand-to-hand combat wasn’t exactly second nature.  My muscles screamed as I pulled myself off the mats and faced our Instructor.

“Running a hand through his thinning hair, Instructor Ramvi looked disgusted with the entire class.  ‘If he’d been a daimon…’”

Jennifer’s Blog / Goodreads / Twitter / Facebook

Jennifer lives in Martinsburg, West Virginia. All the rumors you’ve heard about her state aren’t true. When she’s not hard at work writing. she spends her time reading, working out, watching really bad zombie movies, pretending to write, and hanging out with her husband and her Jack Russel Loki. Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class, where she spent most of her time writing short stories….which explains her dismal grades in math. Jennifer writes young adult paranormal, science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary romance.

  3. Maja (The Nocturnal Library)

    After all the glowing reviews, I’ve decided to read Pure and give the series another chance. Half-Blood relied too heavily on Vampire Academy and I was completely put off by that, but my GR friends somehow managed to change my mind. 🙂
    I already have a copy and I’m sure I’ll get to it soon.

  5. Cassandra

    I’ve read all 3 books and at the moment I am definitely Team Seth.. woohoo! I guess I can understand how people can relate the series to VA but it is very different in my opinion and I honestly enjoy it more than I did VA. 😀

  6. Danny
