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

EternityCureAllison 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 had forgotten just how dark and dangerous this new world Julie Kagawa created was. That’s not a criticism. It’s beautifully dark and dangerous. It’s a world in stark contrast to Kagawa’s Iron Fey world. There was always danger lurking in Faery, but it was surrounded by beauty and sometimes even masked by it. Danger isn’t masked in Allison’s world. For the most part it’s front and center or breathing down her neck. The light that shines through in the Blood of Eden series comes directly from the characters.

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1Some time has passed when The Eternity Cure opens, but not much has happened. Allie is still following the pull that she feels coming from Kanin. She has one goal, and that’s to save him. The road blocks she finds along the way are a lot more than she bargained for.

I’ve stalled on writing this review several times. The main reason is because I don’t want to spoil any of this book for anyone. There are things that happen on Allie’s quest as well as people she meets that totally took me by surprise (at least by the reason and circumstances that she met them.) I just knew that I would have a hard time doing this book justice and not just spill the beans and let everyone know exactly how amazing it was and why. It was jaw dropping, and there were tears and parts of it made me angry and then, when you finally thought that things were going to be okay… it really wasn’t. And then…. *sigh*

I know that doesn’t help and you still have a lot of questions, and I’ve probably confused you more than I’ve convinced you to read this book, but you need to. You really, really do. The characters are amazing. The bad guys are so bad you’ll want to destroy them yourself. There are so many twists and turns and moments that change absolutely everything it’s impossible to not get sucked in. By the end you will find a whole new reason to say ‘authors are evil’ but it won’t stop you from begging for the next book.

So, did I like The Eternity Cure? Absolutely! If you haven’t started the series yet, you need to pick up The Immortal Rules. Just don’t expect it to be anything like the Iron Fey, if you’re familiar with Julie Kagawa’s previous series. It really is just as amazing, only in a very different, but very good way.

  1. GAH! How did I not know this was coming out April 30!! I just preordered it. Holy canoli, I loved the first book, and your review has me super excited for The Eternity Cure! I know I will shed tears, too, and remain in awe of the world-building, which just kicked so much arse.

    Please tell me we see more zompires? *snicker* Those creatures were insanely awesome!

    • LOL! I got this and The Immortal Rules on NetGalley and I wish I had both physical books. This one was just as amazing as the first. There are a LOT of people from the first book who return in this one too. 😉 (Some of them were expected but some of them took me totally by surprise.)

      I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in the ‘zompires’ this go around… they’ve even got company 😉 And yes you will shed tears and yell at Julie Kagawa and then you’ll follow that by begging for the next book to be released… NOW!
