Pure Blog Tour: Interview w/ Seth & Giveaway!

I'm so excited to be the next stop on the Pure Blog Tour, because today I have SETH on the blog! If you read my review here, you'll know that Seth surprisingly won me over in Pure. Not that I don't love Aiden, but dang, Seth totally upped his game in this book. Enjoy getting to know Seth a little bit more.....


Hey Seth. Thank you for stopping by Mundie Moms today. So I recently finished reading Pure and I admit I can surprisingly understand Alex's connection with you. It's kind of hard not to love you in this book. What's one of the things that you admire the most about Alex?
How can you not fall in love with me? I'm all kinds of loveable. What do I admire most about Alex? Besides her legs--because she has a pair of sexy legs, I guess I'd have to go with her irrationality. It's entertaining and usually in the right place, you know?

I admire Alex for not taking crap from anyone and risking what she does to protect those she's cares about. What's one thing that surprised you about Alex in Pure? 
The fact that she would risk herself to protect those she cares about. She's too important to be throwing herself into the middle of battles. 

It's obvious you're not a big fan of Aiden, but you have to admit he does just as good of a job at protecting Alex as you do. What was your first thought of Aiden when you met him in Half-Blood?
Aiden can't protect her as well as me. I'm the mother freaking Apollyon. When it comes down to it, he's an ant. And my first thought of him? Other than there's another pure who acts like there's a broom shoved where the sun doesn't shine, I had no thoughts of him. 

I get the feeling there's still some secrets you're harboring and don't want Alex to know about. Can you tell us one thing about you that she doesn't know? 
If I told you, then you'd tell Alex, and I'd be limping for days if not years. 

If you could take Alex out on a "normal" date, where would you take her to or what would you do? *looks at Seth* You have to keep your answer clean. 
Well, if I have to keep my answer clean...

I've read the first couple pages of Deity and I'm extremely impatient to get that book in my hands. Care to give us a little hint into what we can except to discover when we read it?
They play Wii in the Underworld. Who knew, right? 

Speed round questions:

* What's your favorite sport, besides kicking some you know what?
How about about punching some you know what?

* What's one of the first things you noticed about Alex?
How short she was. Seriously. All the other halfs dwarfed her. 

* What's your favorite power to use in a battle?

* I know there's some fans dying to ask you this.... boxers or briefs?
Don't act coy. You want to know. Boxers, but if I'm feeling froggy...

* If you're taking a girl on a date do you take her to a romantic candle lit dinner and a movie, or do you spend time outdoors together?
I haven't been on a real date. Or one that went past the girl's dorm room... or courtyard. So I honestly don't know how to answer that question. 

* Be honest, how many people have you given the nic name "cuddle bunny" to?
Two things: You know one of the things and when I was little, I had this stuffed bunny. I used to call it cuddle bunny and then something happened to it. It's head got ripped off or something. Hope that doesn't happen to my new cuddle bunny. That would suck.
Yes it would, but I'm pretty sure your new cuddle bunny would be handle herself well if she was put in the position.


Thank you Seth for playing along today and answering my questions.

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 -quoted from Goodreads
