Teaser Tuesday 11.5.13 Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Pure (Covenant Book 2) 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 shot him a haughty look. Really, they were making this into a bigger deal than—“ What the hell?” Seth kicked the door shut behind him. “What?”
“How come you get this awesome room?” I turned around , amazed by the cathedral ceilings, plush carpets, and a big screen television that took up half the wall. And the bed— it was the size of a boat. My current predicament was temporarily forgotten. “I’ve been sleeping in a closet. This isn’t fair.” He dropped his key on a dresser. 
“I’m the Apollyon.” 
“So? I am, too, and I got a matchbox for a room. A coffin would’ve been bigger.” 
“You’re not an Apollyon yet.”
