My review of The Eternity Cure

The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) by Julie Kagawa
Release Date: May 3, 2013
Goodreads | Amazon UK | Amazon | The Book Depository

The Eternity CureIn Allison Sekemoto's world, there is one rule left: Blood calls to blood 

She has done the unthinkable: died so that she might continue to live. Cast out of Eden and separated from the boy she dared to love, Allie will follow the call of blood to save her creator, Kanin, from the psychotic vampire Sarren. But when the trail leads to Allie's birthplace in New Covington, what Allie finds there will change the world forever-and possibly end human and vampire existence. 

There's a new plague on the rise, a strain of the Red Lung virus that wiped out most of humanity generations ago-and this strain is deadly to humans and vampires alike. The only hope for a cure lies in the secrets Kanin carries, if Allie can get to him in time. 

Allison thought that immortality was forever. But now, with eternity itself hanging in the balance, the lines between human and monster will blur even further, and Allie must face another choice she could never have imagined having to make.

The Eternity Cure is the intriguing and action-packed sequel to The Immortal Rules. If you thought the last book had a good plot, just wait until you get a taste of this one! Kagawa brings us the much-anticipated action and tension, incredible world building and the omg-I-want-more kind of romance.

In The Immortal Rules, Allison chose to become a vampire instead of dying. After learning how to survive from her creator Kanin, she meets a group of humans and falls for the gorgeous but forbidden Zeke. After leaving them in a safe place called Eden, she leaves. And that's exactly where The Eternity Cure picks up. Except she is having nightmares of her creator of Kanin being tortured and she is determined to find and help him. This means breaking into the vampire walls, trusting someone who she thought she'd never have to meet, and learning how to keep her emotions under control. Especially as a developed from of the Red Lung virus is spreading and everyone could be in danger.

Julie Kagawa has done it again! How many awesome books can this lady write? I was engrossed in this story and was endlessly surprised at all the twists she brought into the story. I was sitting there after some of the chapters thinking, "Oh. My. Gosh.... AHHHHRRRRRRRR!" And obviously I stayed up super late to finish it because "Just one more chapter" just didn't seem to satisfy me.

I'm still unsure of whether I loved this one more or less than the previous books, or maybe my feelings are the same. All I know is that I enjoyed the plot and the writing immensely, as well as the characters. Allison is strong and one of the best heroines out there. She kicks butt all round, which made the action scenes incredible!
 After that horrible, horrible cliffhanger, I am on edge for the third and final book! I know Julie probably has something mindbogglingly amazing lined up, just like she did for the Iron Fey series, and I simply cannot accept this one year wait. Luckily, The Iron Traitor will be out at the end of the year so there is something to look forward to.

  1. Julie Kagawa is so epically awesome. I just love all of her books! Her main characters are so badass. AND THAT CLIFFHANGER WAS SO TERRIBLE. I mean, it was a bit predictable that that would happen, but it was still horrifying. *grabby hands for the third book*

  2. The ending to this book BROKE ME.I totally agree about Allison she's definitely one of the best heroines I've come across. Awesome review, the gif cracked me up!
