Review:The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa

The Forever Song (Blood of Eden, #3)
Vengeance will be hers.
Allison Sekemoto once struggled with the question: human or monster? With the death of her love, Zeke, she has her answer.
Allie will embrace her cold vampire side to hunt down and end Sarren, the psychopathic vampire who murdered Zeke. But the trail is bloody and long, and Sarren has left many surprises for Allie and her companions - her creator Kanin, and her blood brother, Jackal. The trail is leading straight to the one place they must protect at any cost - the last vampire-free zone on Earth, Eden. And Sarren has one final, brutal shock in store for Allie.

In a ruined world where no life is sacred and former allies can turn on you in one heartbeat, Allie will face her darkest days. And if she succeeds, her triumph will be short-lived in the face of surviving forever alone.

Shona's review 3 of 5 stars

I loved the first two books in this series and I so badly wanted to love this one too, but for me it fell a little flat. Perhaps if I had read it hot off the heels of the other two I may have felt a bit different. But with a little space between books Allie seemed to rub me the wrong way. Everything was doom and gloom and more than a little monotonous with her inner monologue torn between being her concern over being a monster and her determination to kill Sarren.

Kagawa provides us with all the answers to the questions that have been asked in the previous books. We got a resolution to the story and an ending that most people would be happy to walk away with but the journey back to Eden? Not quite as gripping or entertaining as it should be. I honestly contemplated putting the book down and walking away from it because the vast majority of the book was constant bickering between Allie and Jackal (think small kids in the back of the car fighting over who gets to look out which window and asking constantly "Are we there yet").

I was able to continue reading and I did find the ending riveting. All in it was a nice way to wrap up the trilogy.
