Book Review: The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

Genre: Young Adult (Dystopian/Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: April 30, 2013
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

The Blurb:
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.

My Review:
The Eternity Cure is the sequel to The Immortal Rules of the Blood of Eden Series by Julie Kagawa. This was an amazing sequel. I was already a big fan just after book one, and sequels always worry me  because they never seem to live up to the  original book, but this one sure did. As if being a new vampire wasn't hard enough, now Allie has to deal with some major life altering, heartbreaking changes and she's  faced with some extremely hard decisions. I have grown so attached to these characters, and this book brought me to tears in parts. There's also a character from book one, who I never,  in a million years thought I would ever like, but he added a lot to this sequel. If you read book one, then you probably won't expect to like him either. I still don't trust him, but he's definitely grown on me. The Eternity Cure is not just another vampire book, it's so much more than that. There were parts that were literally painful to read.  Julie Kagawa is fearless. She's not afraid to take some pretty major risks, and they work. That just goes to show what an amazing writer she is. I highly recommend this book.

About the Author:
Julie Kagawa, the New York Times bestselling author of the Iron Fey and Blood of Eden series was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn’t getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.

When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her Math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time, but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a real job.

To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dogtrainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full time.

Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all time low. She lives with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own good, and the latest addition, a hyper-active Papillon.
