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.
Fight it as long as you want–in the end, the monster always wins.
Oh, I'm sorry, did Julie Kagawa hit it out of the park again? I think she did! The Eternity Cure is all we have been waiting for! No terrible second book lag, in fact if I was to be honest this one might have been a bit more action packed than the first! Every other page Allison had her weapon out, ready to kick some serious butt! Full of extremely graphic scenes, and an ever moving plot, The Eternity Cure is sure to satisfy fans all around the world and leave you screaming your head off for more!
We start off months after Allison leaves Eden behind her. She is searching for Kanin, her mentor and and quite frankly her friend. When, believing she has found Kanin, she stumbles onto someone she didn't expect. Her journey then leads her back to where it all started, New Covington, her place of birth as well as death.
"Next time you two decide to go on a bloody killing spree, at leat send me an invitatin so I know that you care."
"Oh, don't mind me," came an extremely sarcastic voice near the wall. "You two go ahead and make out–I'll just sit here and bleed quietly."
The novel was written in a way that made you feel as if you where there. There was a part when Allison was describing a room that was used for torture that was just so horrific and bloody. I can really picture the novel as if it was a movie, which is great for when the novel actually becomes a movie (rights have een optioned out already). And we get a new type of virus that just makes things even MORE interesting. The Eternity Cure really never misses a beat.
I liked how in the end Julie doesn't use the same old tired trick. It would be a spoiler for me to say what she does so beautifully, but let's just say she doesn't insult our intelligence, or leave us questioning. She wonderfully sets up the plot for the next Blood of Eden novel with a bit of a cliffhanger, but one that doesn't intend to make you wonder as much? More like HIGHLY anticipate what is going to happen next.
Lesson learned. I was a monster. I would never forget that again...
