The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) by Julie Kagawa

Author: Julie Kagawa
Publication: April 30, 2013
By: Harlequin Teen

How do you face the end of eternity?

In 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.

DISCLAIMER: This review, try as I might, will not do justice to this book...

Thank you Harlequin Teen for this ARC. I enjoyed THE IMMORTAL RULES (BLOOD OF EDEN #1) SO much I wrote a poem but THE ETERNITY CURE left me speechless - and rocking back and forth in a corner.

What I Loved: Julie Kagawa tells a story like few people can and this book wrecked me. She is a master world builder whose characters are complex, flawed yet easily relateable. I was sucked right back into Allie's world and I held my breath in anticipation throughout most of it as I watched Allie and company in their bloody and often violent journey for the cure.

Allie has become one of my very favorite heroines, she is an amazing mix of strength, courage and vulnerability and she's constantly striving to do the right thing despite what it may cost her. I enjoyed getting to know Kanin more and even Jackal, the smart-mouth bloodsucker who is exactly how I imagine a vampire to be.

Sarren, however, is the epitome of evil and I hope Allie guts him like a fish in the end! Yeah, I said it. COME AT ME SARREN! *hides behind Allie and her giant sword*

Then there is Zeke...I fell in lurve with Preacher Boy Ezekiel Crosse in book one and sweet baby bloodbags, he is even MORE perfect in this sequel! Zeke really is a light in Allie's dark world and the one person who has the ability to see past all that she despises about herself to the heart of her and his selfless bravery is no match even for the most evil of creatures.

What left me wanting:
There are NO WORDS for the final chapters of this book... NO.WORDS. *clutches chest*

Final verdict: Fans of THE IMMORTAL RULES will not be disappointed, but you should prepare yourselves because this book is like a stab in the feels with a katana.

Favorite quote:
"You're not evil...No one who fights so hard to do the right thing is evil."
