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.
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on THE ETERNITY CURE. Julie Kagawa has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I can honestly say that I haven’t read a book of hers that I didn’t like. Kagawa creates unforgettable characters and awe-inspiring worlds. While I didn’t love THE ETERNITY CURE like I did THE IMMORTAL RULES, I must say that THE ETERNITY CURE is another homerun (maybe just an in-the-park homerun?).
Kagawa has a real knack for making me feel the full spectrum of emotions in her books and THE ETERNITY CURE is no exception. I laughed, I cried, I felt sympathy and anger. That is one of the most beautiful things about her books. Oh, the FEELS!!
With all the emotions I felt, I’m sure you’re wondering why I didn’t love it quite like I did THE IMMORTAL RULES. The answer is quite simple. It was the absence of a character, a very dear character of mine, Zeke. I was seriously beginning to question if Zeke would make an appearance! Finally, around the 25% mark he does! After that things pretty much picked up and didn’t slow down. I understand why Zeke wasn’t present. It wouldn’t have made sense for him to just be there with the way THE IMMORTAL RULES ended. Still, though, Zeke’s absence is profound in my opinion. I had a very difficult time getting into the story. I know a lot of people enjoyed Jackal and he was funny but I missed Zeke!
Allie continued to grow as a character and as a vampire. She is strong and fierce and completely badass. (Sorry, I’m not usually one to use profanity in reviews but that is the best description I can come up with). Allie is a heroine that easy to love. She struggles but refuses to give up even in the bleakest situations.
As usual, Kagawa adds many twists and turns and by the end of the book all you can do is stare at a wall with your mouth open. All I could think at the end of THE ETERNITY CURE was, “Oh. My. God.” Seriously, it’s that shocking and a little evil, really! If you haven’t checked out this series, I highly recommend…actually that goes for anything that has Julie Kagawa’s name on it!
