Pure Blog Tour: Character Interview with Alex & Aiden + Giveaway Deets #PureTourJLA


Jennifer L. Armentrout!
About Jennifer

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. She also writes adult romance under the name J. Lynn. She is the author of the COVENANT Series (Spencer Hill Press), the LUX Series (Entangled Publishing), and the upcoming YA contemporary mystery/thrillers DON'T LOOK BACK (Disney/Hyperion Fall 2013) and yet untitled book (Disney/Hyperion tentative Fall 2014). --Cited from Jennifer's Blog

And the wonderful sequel to Half-Blood and Daimon...

Covenant series #2
The Blurb

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.

Don't you just bloody love that cover too?? :D


An Interview with Alex & Aiden

CYP: Hey, you two! Thanks for coming along for the interview!

Alex sits first, followed by Aiden who keeps a discreet distance on the couch. She waves. "Hi there!"
Aiden nods.

CYP: So, how's everything so far? You two doing great? Going great? *waggles brows*

Alex's eyes shoot wide, but Aiden only arches a brow. "Training is going well."

CYP: Haha, OK, for starters, let's do a simple introduction. Alex, what's the Covenant like?

Alex glances at Aiden before answering. "It's okay. I mean, there isn't much to do other than training and going to class. So nothing too exciting. I'm still on lockdown, so I pretty much only see the walls of my dorm."

CYP: Hm, not the usual "hub-bub". You must be bored to death. ;P Anyway, what about your powers? I've heard Aiden, you're quite the "hot stuff" around? Hehe. (Excuse the lame-ness)

"I can control the fire element, if that is what you're referencing." He cocks his head to the side. "Though I don't like to use it unless necessary. It can be a very destructive ability."

CYP: Destructive or not, it is a rather cool ability. Most Pures have control over air only right? So fire must be a really cool power to have. Alex, when you're training, what do you enjoy doing?

Alex grins. "I like the more physical stuff. Think takedowns on mats."
"Why doesn't that surprise me," Aiden murmurs.

CYP: Well, girls who like action are kickass, so that should be a good thing. Aiden's been your *looks at Alex* Kung Fu teacher for quite some time now, how's he as a teacher? And Aiden, how's Alex for a student? How do you compare her with the others?

"Aiden is great." She slides him a sly look. "He's patient. Most of the time."
A small grin appears on Aiden's lips. "I've never taught a student before. I'm not an Instructor, so I really have no one to compare Alex to."
"That's because there's no one you can compare me to."
Aiden's smile spreads and one dimple appears. "That is probably the truest thing you have said."

CYP: *Looks back and forth between interviewees, amused* What were your first impressions of each other? It happened way before Alex left the Covenant three years back right? How did you two meet? Was there any immediate spark or something? (Hey, I'm a romantic :P)

Alex starts staring at the ceiling, lips pursed.
"Next question." Aiden says.

CYP: :( Lol, okaaaaay. I hear that there's a third in this little party. Tell me about Seth. I wanna hear both of your views.

"Seth is... well, he's Seth," Alex says. "He's kind of different. Most of the time I don't know if he's being serious, joking, or if he's just plan psychotic."
Aiden stiffens. "I don't want to talk about him."

CYP: Hmm, do both of you have any most embarrassing memories to share?

Alex laughs. "Do I have to pick just one? Gods, they are so many."
Beside her, Aiden laughs. "Most embarrassing moment for me? Probably walking in on my brother doing things he shouldn't be doing."

CYP: OH damn, that sounds...awkward. But I am intrigued. :P Deacon seems to have a knack for foing some of the most random and unique stuff. Haha, ok now we'll be moving on to the rapid fire questions!

1. Favourite food?
Alex's eyes lite up. "Red meat of any kind."
"Chicken," Aiden answers.

2. Favourite movie?
Aiden shakes his head. "I don't get to watch a lot of movies. I think the last one I saw was a James Bond flick."
"I really liked Talladega Nights. Cracks me up everything I watch it."

3. Favourite season/weather?
"Summer," both of them answer.

(CYP: Aww, cute. :P)

4. Favourite color?
"Gray," Alex answers, then blushes as if she hadn't meant to say that.
Aiden grins, but doesn't answer.

5. Favourite person in the world? (Please refrain from cheesiness. >:|)

"Caleb." She rolls her eyes. "Who did you think I'd say?"
Aiden laughs. "I'd have to say Deacon."

CYP: Well, you never know...Teenagers nowadays. *Shrugs*

CYP:  Okok, any parting words?

"I think I should be able to sleep in on Saturdays," Alex says.
Aiden chuckles. "Nice try."


What I have to say about Pure:

I'm still doing up my review for PURE, but I've read it a few days ago, and I really liked it! I'm rating it a 4/5 stars, and I must say, it really is deserving of every one of them. The stars, I mean. It was GREAT. More action, more tragedies, more romance, more deceptions, more everything! I can't, can't, can't wait for DEITY to be out! Stay tuned for my full review!

  1. Thanks for the interview! That was funny and awkward at times :D
    Thanks for being part of the tour!
    Alyssa Susanna

    1. Hahaha, awkward but in a good way, I hope! Thanks and welcome, Alyssa! :)

  2. Haha that was cute.. I got teary eyed at one point (favorite person, anyone?) but other than that.. I loved it!

    1. I actually came up with that question to boost my ego a little (y'know, when I ask "Who's your favourite person?" then they will go, "You!"), but I liked the way it turned out! Haha. :P

  3. Great interview!!! These guys are just a riot. I really love this series so far. Especially the mythology. I'm a sucker for it!

  4. I think my favorite scene is when Alex, her friend and Aaiden pay respects to her mother and send a boat off to sea.

  5. Love the interview & their personalities xD I also really like the covers of this series! Finally, covers without a girl in a long dress!

  6. funny^^ i loved this post thanks you a lot

    all the best

  7. Is it me or it's suddenly hot in here! :P
    Great, thank you for this!! :) I love it!

    Greetings! :)

  8. Great interview. Thanks for being part of the tour.


  9. Love the interview! I kind of wish Seth was being interviewed at the same time, too. Now that would be hilarious. :D

  10. Thank you, I loved the interview! Very informative and very amusing indeed. Anyways, I loved Half Blood and Pure! The action, the romance (especially the romance), the world of Pure's and half bloods and Gods is amazing!

    I have two favorite scenes so I'll just say them both, I loved the scene with Seth and Alex going to the pool. Seth seemed more gentle, and sweet and self-less in that one, especailly to Alex. The second scene would be when Alex drank the "wine" that made her go all crazy and start doing stuff that she normally wouldn't do while Seth is trying to stay calm and keep his promise with Aiden! I loved Pure the most though and I know I will love Deity more!

    Thank you!

  11. Great interview. Character interviews are always so much fun.

  12. Great interview! I love these character interviews. Thanks for posting. :)

  13. Loved the character interview! I haven't read the Covenant series yet....Aiden sounds like a really cool guy!
