The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden 2)

By: Julie Kagawa

Release Date: April 30, 2013

Rating: 5 stars

Summary: 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.

 

Review: Aghhh! Julie Kagawa. I love you. No, I hate you. Gah, really, I love you.

I thought the first book started out really slow until the last third, but this one kicked ass all the way through. It was a very intriguing story with a good mix of action, humour, seriousness, romance, betrayal (especially obnoxiousness from that twerp that just made my blood boil) and mystery about the virus and Eden.

1) If you ask if this book is really different from most paranormal-dystopian novels, probably not too far off. But Kagawa just had a way of sucking you into the story anyway.

2) Allie was a badass. Allie continued to be a badass. Too often, I see a strong, determined, no-nonsense fighter go through a period of uncertainty and lose themselves for a while and, quite frankly, annoy the hell out of me. Allie did go through a period where she was unsure of who she is and what she wants, but not once did she waiver from that firecracker she has always been.

3) For those who are wondering, yes, Zeke does return. And yes, even though I knew he would, I did experience the heart-stopping “oh my god” moment. Oh yeah, this book was worth reading.

4) Kanin is still the awesome, well-respected Master, showing strength even at his weakest moments.

5) Kagawa did an AMAZING job writing Jackal and Sarren. You just never know to expect with Jackel, and Sarren was just so psychotically twisted that I want to read more about him to see what he’s going to come up with next.

And the end. Left. Me. Breathless. Argh, I can’t wait for another year!
