Summary: (from goodreads) Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally.

Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.

As far as sequels go, The Eternity Cure was superb. Julie Kagawa did not hold back in this sequel. She gave me everything I would have expected and more. The action was pulsating. The romance was swoon-worthy. The Blood of Eden world that Julie has envisioned and written continues to amaze me how great and powerful it is.

I admire and respect authors that have no fear in what they write. Julie knew she would hurt or upset some of us if not all of us but she wrote it and I thank her for not holding back or sugar coating any scenes in The Eternity Cure. Everything in these pages supported and needed each other to create a fantastic book and top The Immortal Rules.

The Eternity Cures continue the story with Allison "Alli" now on the search for sire Kanin. She can feel that he is alive by the blood bond they share. She knows that he is being tortured by the horrible Sarren. Alli and Zeke set out to search for Kanin by following the connection when they stumble across (drum roll please) Jackal. Jackal is Alli blood brother. Thats why she felt the connection and thought it was Kanin's she was following. Jackal and Alli will set difference aside so they can search and aid their sire. During this escape they travel in to all parts and discover that Red Lung disease has become a bigger threat. Some how the disease has mutated or evolved into something much worse than before. Now Alli has the dilemma of finding and saving Kanin and also discovering who is behind the Red Lung disease.

In this sequel to were able to get deeper with the characters, see sides of them we didn't see in The Immortal Rules. Of course there were new characters introduced in this sequel to read about. Alli will continue to win our heart with her strength and will to fight for what's right. Zeke will be alongside her even though she is now a creature he was taught to hate and kill. Zeke and Alli make a powerful duo, they each will come to terms with how much they help each other out. Alli will have to fight off even bigger inner monsters and not let her true nature come out now. Zeke will open his heart and not leave anything to chance. 

The secondary characters such as Kanin, Jackal, Sarren and Stick are as important in this story as Zeke and Alli. All these new faces help the flow immensely and flow like a lazy river on a Sunday afternoon, Ha! that's until you turn the corner and hit the white water rapids. So make sure to hold on tight and don't let go, because if you loose focus for a second you will be throw off. 

Before I end this review I have to chat about the ending. Julie you sure no how to pluck a girl's heart right out of her chest. What an EPIC ending. I didn't chuck the book at the wall because I would have been throwing my iPad. I just can't believe where it ended and how it ended. I'm not mad at Julie on the country, she left it so its a matter of life and death how much I want to read the third book already. I wont spoil it but be prepared for the end!!!! 

Overall this book was Ah-Ma-Zing!!! Its everything I love and more. One thing I truly love love love is the combination of genre that Julie brought together. You get your dose of Dystopian and Paranormal all in one thick novel. I recommend to anyone, young or old. You will LOVE it!!!

  1. That ending was killer! I have so many thoughts about where Kagawa will take the story next but am sure I cannot predict what will happen.
