 Synopsis
Some things are worth waiting for…

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing…

Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.

Some things should never be kept quiet…

But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?

And some things are worth fighting for…

"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...

The Covenant series definitely did get better and better as the second and third books were added to the series. There are practically no words that can be used to describe the latest installment, for Jennifer truly outdid herself this time. Reading it was like riding a roller coaster blindfolded—you would never know when the drop will come.

For those of you who haven’t heard of the Covenant series or want to refresh your memory, here’s a little background on the characters:

The are only two words that can be used to describe Alex, the protagonist in this novel. One, stubborn, and two, determined. In Half-Blood, she returned to the academy after being on the run with her mother, only to find that she might be on the verge of being expelled by the dean—her own uncle at that. But Aiden, one of the Pures in the academy, manages to convince the dean to let her stay. However, on one condition: Aiden was given the job train her so that she would be able to graduate in time. As the training progresses, both trainer and trainee become closer to one another, leading to some very forbidden things.

Cue in Seth, the Apollyon. Translation: He has the power to wield all five elements. Pure centers upon him and the revelation that Alex is the Apollyon as well, which means that she can make him even more powerful. Since Aiden is determined to push Alex away, she and Seth get closer, leaving Alex to wonder whether on not it is because of their bond as Apollyons, or that she really has feelings for him as well.

Now we arrive at Diety. Alex is awakening, and soon, Seth will become the God Killer after her eighteenth birthday. At the beginning, she trusted Seth—he was her other half, of course—but then things began to get shady. It seemed as if no one could be trusted anymore, and to top it off, the gods were getting angry. Thus, leading to a series of events that I am tempted to spoil but will not. You must find out yourself—it’s part of the excitement.

The characters were awesome, just like in Half-Blood and Pure. There are new faces, but the author still manages to develop the old. Again, our protagonist finds herself caught between Seth and Aiden. Since Seth basically appeared in ever page in Pure however, this time, it’s Aiden’s turn in the spotlight. Alex and Aiden’s relationship definitely evolves in Diety, which I didn’t quite expect, since Aiden was so set on staying away from her in the last novel. So until Apollyon is out, I’m afraid I’m in a dilemma when it comes to Aiden and Seth.

Overall, just as I always say with Jennifer Armentrout’s novels, it was fantastic. I gave it a five star rating—if not more—without hesitation. For if there was a hall of fame for novels, Diety will surely be part of it.

Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

Considering that I finished both Obsidian and Onyx in a span of 24 hours, I pretty sure it’s obvious how much I adore the Lux series. Jennifer bring us all to this whole new world wherein aliens exist, Arums are their enemies, and the DOD, the body that keeps everyone–and everything– in line.

So we’re back with old faces–Daemon, Katy, Dee, Blake…and new ones as well. I found that I thoroughly enjoyed Onyx just as much as I did with Obsidian. Though the plot is similar to the first installment, it’s also a contrast—I mean this in a good way. The mysterious Department of Defense finally makes an appearance… but they weren’t after the aliens anymore. Now, that will be up to you to read and find out. I won’t spoil this one.

Going on to the characters. Well, what can I say? Thoroughly developed, witty personalities, and every bit as I had expected them to be. Just like in Obsidian, my favorite character is still Daemon. Because not only is he smoking hot, but gentle and caring on the inside. I find that I’m I real sucker for fictional characters with those characteristics—hard exteriors, yet gentle and sweet underneath, gentle and sweet. His cocky attitude was something that I found very entertaining throughout reading the book.

“Upset tummy or not, there was no way I could refuse that. “Sure.”

His lips tipped up on one side and he leaned toward me, his mouth inches from mine. “Come and get it.”

Come and get…? Daemon placed half the cookie between those full, totally kissable lips.

Oh, holy alien babies everywhere…”

Katy changed. It was nice to read from her perspective, because of the fact that she evolved at the same time. Gone was the girl who sat in the corner reading books, replaced with a braver and stronger person. In addition to that, Katy was a blogger as well, so I found myself be able to relate to the situations she managed to get herself stuck in (Laptops. I can’t live without mine either.).

Overall, I will recommend this to anyone who wants a fantastic sci-fi, paranormal read. Onyx deserves a five star, if not more, for the explicit writing that was able to weave a one-of-a-kind story that can’t be missed. It will definitely keep you guessing, and your heart pounding.

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don't kill him first, that is.

Yep, I was definitely drooling along with Katy throughout the whole book whenever Daemon appeared. Jennifer did it again! It’s amazing, the way she writes, how she could make the reader feel a churn of emotions at the same time. At first, I want nothing but to sink my fist into Daemon’s face, but at the end of the story and after reading his POV, I was half-hoping he would magically materialize at my door.

For the hundredth time, I question: What do the best guys have to be fictional?

Anyways, I’m pretty sure that it is very obvious that I loved the characters in this novel. And, there was no insta-love, which is pretty much an added bonus. At the end of the novel, it was still pretty much a love-hate relationship– very humorous yet frustrating at times.

Kate was easy to understand. She was a straightforward, no nonsense type of person. Whenever she does things, there needs to be logic behind it, which was why it was hard for her to grasp that the boy next door was well… an alien. Daemon, on the other hand, was more mysterious. He was a jerk at the very start, as in it’s-not-funny-anymore kind of jerk. But as he grew more accustomed to Katy, and slowly, the gentle side of him started to show.

Yep, and that was around 12. Midnight. And I was squealing like an idiot.

I found that I liked the whole alien thing that Jennifer created. It was new, not the usual paranormal stuff with vampires and werewolves. And it wasn’t ET either. The “alien mojo” had me laughing till hours end.

So, is it book recommended? YES. Should everyone read Jennifer Armentrout’s novels? YES. Does Daemon rightfully belong to Alyana? YES, YES, YES! Uh… I mean…

Review: Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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 stunned. Let me tell you that if you weren’t already impressed with Half-Blood, you will definitely love Pure. This is probably why it took me such a long time to write a review, even though I read it ages ago. In her second installment of the Covenant series, Jennifer manages to develop the plot into something richer, as well as the characters–their personalities slowly evolved, most especially Alex, to make the book much more interesting than it already is.


Don’t get me started on Seth.

I was initially Team Aiden at the start, but when I finished Pure, I stepped on board the Apollyon train without hesitation. The romance in the novel is so intense, shifting back and forth from Aiden and Seth constantly that the reader will always have second-thoughts about both boys. It makes me dread who Alex is going to choose at the end. (Seth, Seth, Seth, Seth!)


Let’s go to the plot. This is basically my reaction: Hands down to Jennifer Armentrout, for weaving yet another intricate tale to support the first! But this time, Alex goes into rigorous training–with the help of Aiden and Seth, of course, in order to prepare herself to fight daemons. In time, she does grow stronger, and the Apollyon power inside of her grows stronger as well. 


For me, I especially liked reading about these parts. What I find most important in a novel is character development. I hate it when there are holes in a book, or how a character can suddenly turn into a ninja when he or she had absolutely no training at all. The author took the events in a step to step progress, and it was something that I really appreciated.


Overall, I can’t wait to read Diety! (Which I finally have!!). Pure left me hanging, and craving for more. Jennifer L. Armentrout definitely made my favorite authors list, and I will not hesitate to read any other book she has written.

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

Half-Blood: The offspring of a Pure and a mortal. Though they don’t have the powers of a Pure, they have rare abilities that a Pure doesn’t have. They have two choices: to train in the Covenant, or succumb to slavery.

I am currently resisting the urge to fan-girl at the moment. Believe me, it’s hard. Half-Blood was that amazing—and I really want to say that it’s been such a long time that I ever felt that way with a book. The way Jennifer Armentrout writes is so engaging and interesting to a point that you never want to put the novel down.

What I loved best about Half-Blood was its plot. It constantly kept me guessing, flipping frantically through the pages to find out what happens next. The characters are a close second as well. They were well-rounded, and the reader will be able to relate to what they’re feeling as the events progress. Alexandria (I love her name, by the way.) is a rebellious teenage girl who recently lost her mother to the daimons, needs to prove her worth to the Covenant in order to be accepted again—or risk being taken as a slave. Her courage and her witty personality that kept the pages alive.

Aiden… ah, what can I say? Definitely, 100% drool worthy. His cautious yet brave personality compliment’s Alex’s perfectly. As her trainer, he spends a lot of time with her, which means tons of scenes with Aiden in the novel (But, sadly, it will never be enough for me. *sigh*). Seth, the current Apollyon is equally handsome as well—though much, much cockier. Though he didn’t have much screen time in Half-Blood, I predict that he will appear more in Pure, and I’m also seeing a love triangle here.

Overall, Half-Blood was well-written, engaging, and reccomended for anyone who needs a good paranormal read. I have to admit that I was supposed to give it a four or four point five at first, but when I reached the end of the novel, I gave it, without hesistation, a five. Why? Because the things that I thought were lacking came out at the last few chapters—but I realized as well that it was the perfect place for them. Get your copy today! You have no idea what your missing.
