Review: The Eternity Cure
The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Allison wants to find her sire, Kanin. He has been kidnapped and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren and she is able to follow them because she is linked to Kanin through a blood bond. This blood bond leads her back to New Covington and the Fringe; the home of her human self and the place where she became undead. In order to find and save Kanin she must meet with the vampire prince of the city who would like nothing less than to kill Kanin and herself. After she reaches New Covington she discovers that a new strain of Red Lung Disease is spreading. This new strain threatens humans and vampires alike.
The Eternity Cure picks up shortly after The Immortal Rules ends. Through flashback, internal dialog and conversations Kagawa reviews key components of the original story without taking away from the new story. Readers will be pulled into the struggle within Allie as she continues to adjust to becoming a vampire without losing her humanity. I loved the book and wanted to continue to read even when I needed to leave for work. I also found myself running a variety of possible scenarios in my head while reading. The Eternity Cure is not a predictable book, but it also isn’t full of unlikely surprises. Readers will definitely want to read the first book before jumping into this volume and be prepared to wait for the next book in the Blood of Eden series.
