Review: The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden, #2)Out here in the Fringes, there is only one rule: Blood calls to blood. She has done the unthinkable: died so she might continue to live. Now Allie, the reluctant teenage vampire who was cast out of Eden, and Zeke, the human boy who loves her, must attempt to save the world from a deadly new strain of plague. In order to do so, they must first hunt down the monster who holds the promise of the cure—and Allie’s beloved mentor—in his sadistic grip…. Joined by Allie’s blood brother, Jackal, this unlikely posse of companions will brave a landscape stalked by raiders, rabids, and rogue vampires. But even if they survive, they’re bound for the Inner city, and a vicious showdown that will test their bonds in ways they never expected. It may just be that becoming undead was the easy part. Confronting the horrors of Allie’s awakening hunger, her growing feelings for Zeke, and the uncertainties of their future is going to be the ultimate challenge.


Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

This book picks up shortly after The Immortal Rules ends, with Allie trekking across the country trying to find Kanin. What she finds though is something else entirely.

I have to say I was more than a little surprised at some of the choices Allie made in this book, but it is a testament to how much she has changed, how far she has come since we first met her as the Fringer Rat Allie. As characters in novels go this girl is so well rounded, thought out and substantial that she was practically stood in my living room in 3D while I was reading. There isn't much worse than flimsy characters with no drive... well a story filled with plot holes would be one but thankfully there is none of that here.

Kagawa has given us another well written story in this series, one with twists and turns that will keep you on your toes and keep you guessing right to the very end. This one has the same steady pace as the first book in the series, with action thrown in at just the right moments to keep you deeply entertained.
