4/5
Better then the first!
 ......................................
 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.

 I was skeptical after reading the first book if I would like this series. There are a few parallels that could stil be drawn between this and that of Vampire Academy, but this series is definitely starting blossom into its own! 
Pure is leaps above Half-Blood. (In my opinion.) I really like Alex. She is such a strong girl. I love that she is afraid and unsure of herself. She makes mistakes. Big ones and she has to learn to deal with them. 
There is a love triangle, but it's not an annoying sappy one. There is Aiden, the guy who she has fallen for and understands her, but they can't be together or their lives will be at risk. And then there is Seth, a guy who she is connected to whether she wants it or not. They are drawn to eachother, but is it real?
There are twists and turns through out the story. You wont be bored. This books has laughs, cries, and romance.  It's a fast, easy, and entertaining read. I was never bored at any given point and it only left me wanting the next book in the series.
 This is turning out to be a very promising series.
