You can read my review of  The Immortal Rules - here
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.

I LOVED this book! Julie Kagawa is an excellent writer and one of my favorite authors. The Eternity Cure is an amazing sequel to one of my favorite books in 2012, The Immortal Rules.

The Eternity Cure takes place a few months after the events of The Immortal Rules, Allison is in a search and rescue mission of her creator - Kanin who was kidnapped by a quite psychotic vampire and Allison thanks to the connection she has with her creator is able to trace him, but so far she´s several steps behind them. And on her travels she meets with certain prince vampire who wants her dead, but for now he would have her as an ally and decide to help each other, as both can benefit from this partnership.

All the characters are very well written and easy to grow fond of them, already love some from the first book, but now I loved them even more thanks to this book and certain character that I didn´t liked in the previous book, now I see him with different eyes. And this time in story there were several surprises and appeared of several characters that I didn´t expected to see in this book, as it was the vampire prince (which I will not say his name to avoid spoilers), but this character took a turn and we see another side of him the that although he has his own reasons to help Allie, and they´re not at all a secret, I like him a lot and he has several funny moments. I can not wait to see more of him in the next book and see what will he do next.

The Eternity Cure is a very excellent second book in a series, the beginning is a little slow but then takes strength and I could not stop reading it and I'm happy to report that there is no love triangle (I feared for a moment that if there would be). And the last chapters! NOO! I was in tears, it's so unfair what happens and it has a mayor cliffhanger that left me stunned and trying to process what was happening and dying to read the next book.

This book is a MUST read, if you like dystopian books with vampires and a strong female character that kick-butt, is loyal and smart. And if you have not read The Immortal Rules, first book of the series ... You should read it...now, it´s really amazing book. I highly recommend this book.

I want to thank Harlequin Teen and Netgalley for this review copy.

  1. Wow 5 out of 5; great review! I am still half way through The Immortal Rules. I can't wait to read this one. I love Julie Kagawa's books; The Iron Fey series is my favorite.

  2. I know this is terrible of me, but I haven't read The Immortal Rules just yet. What makes it even worse is that it is sitting on my Kindle, just waiting for me to get to it already. I have waited for a good reason though. I get myself so hyped up for books sometimes, after seeing so many rave reviews for them, and then I will read them and I am disappointed. I so do not want that to happen with this series. But now that book 2 is around, I think I might have to take a chance with it. Especially since it seems like The Eternity Cure is just as much of a hit!

  3. New book from Julie Kagawa. Must read it. Thanks for sharing :)

  4. I too thought the second book was even better than the first book which was my number one pick for last year!

  5. I feel like I am the only person who has not read any books by her! I need to get on that, everyone raves about her.

  6. I still need to read the first one. i keep hearing such great things!

  7. I am dying to get my hands on this book! I fell in love with this series and I just cannot wait to read the rest! I just recently found out the third book will be called the Forever Song. Thank you for sharing your review! (:

  8. I haven't read anything from Julie yet (I know, I'm the worst)... but I promise I'll change that soon.

    A quick question: should I start with this book or should I read her previous books first?

    Thanks, greets! :)
