The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Immortal Rules was my first Julie Kagawa book, and I immediately fell in love with the characters, the writing, the story, everything! I had been looking forward to this second book for what seems like forever. The only thing I don't like about it is the cover (the blue one with the lungs or roots whatever they are on the front). I am very disappointed to have gotten this cover on the hardcover I purchased. Oh well, what are you going to do?
In this second book in The Blood of Eden series, our much loved heroine street girl-turned-vampire is still struggling with how to keep her humanity in a world where humanity is no longer valued. She is trying to do what she knows is right, even if it is not always the easiest. She makes some new friends along the way as well as crosses paths with some old ones we thought were lost. There comes a point where Allie has to decide who to trust, and she finds sometimes it is not the most obvious people.
The romance in the story, like the first book, is nicely paced and does not take over the story. While I want Allie to be happy and in love, the world she lives in is a rough and dismal place. There are many things that must be overcome before she gets her happily ever after…if she gets it at all.
Once again Ms. Kagawa's writing had me pulled into the story. The descriptive writing is beautiful and detailed. I am now anxiously looking forward to book three and will be re-reading the first two before it comes out!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
