Summary

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.

Review

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa starts where The Immortal Rules leaves off. Allie is forced to leave Eden and she knows she has to help her maker Kanin. Allie has dreams of the torture being inflicted on Kanin and follows the pull that will lead her to him. With a slight twist, Allie is lead to Jackal, the raider king who killed her friends. Allie is forced to work with Jackal in tracking down Kanin and ultimately fighting the old and powerful Sarren to save those she loves.

Allison Sekemoto is as conflicted in The Eternity Cure as she was in The Immortal Rules. She believes that there is a demon deep inside of her but wants to do the right thing. Allie has a strict moral code which she lives by and seeing her struggle to do the right thing, is an important part of The Eternity Cure.

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa is fast-paced, full of action, and difficult to put down. Julie Kagawa keeps things interesting by having characters that were previously evil, do some good. The shades of gray is such an important part of The Eternity Cure because in this society, where it is kill or be killed, you have to make difficult decisions. Watching Allie struggle to do the right thing even in the face of tremendous obstacles, shows how strong she is. I do love that Allie is forced to work with Jackal. While he may be evil and quite self-centered, his constant barbed speech adds levity to what is a dark book. It is impossible not to be glad that Jackal is around.

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa is immensely entertaining and does a great job of moving the story of Allison Sekemoto forward. This book is not filler but a fully fleshed story that would be interesting on its own. I highly recommend The Eternity Cure for those who like their vampires a little dark and their world a little bleak.

  1. I NEED THIS. I’m such a fan of The immortal rules and I’ve been waiting for this one for such a long time now. Fast-paced, filled with action and of course one of my favorite characters: Allie :D! I like the fact that Jackal is part of this story. Great review!

    • Thanks!

      I love Jackal so much (minus the part of him being kind of a jerk.) I hope you like but am sure you will because it is awesome. 🙂
