Review: The Eternity Cure

The Eternity Cure
Blood of Eden #2
Julie Kagawa

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 Rating: 5/5

“You will always be a monster - there is no turning back from it. But what kind of monster you become is entirely up to you.”

“Oh, don't mind me," came an extremely sarcastic voice near the wall. “You two go ahead and make out–I'll just sit here and bleed quietly.”

“This is the most I have ever been in the sewers in one place. If someone had said to me a month ago, 'Hey, Jackal, guess where you'll be spending most of your time in New Covington? Ankle-deep in shit!' I would've ripped their lips off.”

My Thoughts:
I have yet to read a book by Julie Kagawa that I didn't love. The Eternity Cure continues with Allie's search to find her sire, Kanin, and to take down Sarren, the psycho vampire that took and tortures him.. Along they way she picks up a unlikely ally, Jackal, the raider king, whose town she destroyed after he killed some of her human friends, and who also happens to be her blood brother. Jackal was a good bit of comic relief during their dark journey. His witty remarks, though dark and violent, somehow brought some lightness to this already very dark story. I have to admit, the very beginning was a little slower, but it picked up the pace and ran with it.

There are so many other things I want to comment on, but I don't want to ruin the story line for anyone who hasn't read this book yet. But one think I will say is that I see absolutely no love triangle in this book. I have seen it referred to as a triangle between Allie, Zeke, and Kanin, but that really bothers me. Allie is referred to multiple times as "Kanin's Daughter". I don't think he has ever been presented in this book as a possible romantic choice for Allie. Now if he was, I would be all over that, because they really do make sense together, but I don't know if I could get past the 'father-daughter' thingy.

In all this was an amazing continuation of the Blood of Eden Series. It was action packed and thrilling, and I cannot wait for the next book!


  1. I haven't read a bad Julie Kagawa book either :D I can't believe people consider this a love triangle, that bothers me too. Allie and Kanin obviously just have a mentor/student relationship, aish. (Although, like you, I would really enjoy that xD) Great review :)

  2. The Immortal Rules wasn't a good book for me but this one is amazing! I never considered that love triangle but I wish there is one between Allie, Zeke, and Jackal >___< Jackal is definitely my favorite character! I can't wait for the third book! Great review, Sydney :)
