Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
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: Buzz, buzz, buzz… This book has been generating such a buzz. Well bees, I get it ok? This book was amazing. I get what all the hype is about and yes, I’ve joined the ‘everyone read The Eternity Cure because it’s pure awesomeness’ train.
The Eternity Cure is a novel that is very easy to fall in love with. The novel itself with its plot twists, action, suspense, badassedness and yes, it’s romance make for an all consuming read. So imagine everything you enjoyed in The Immortal Rules with a better story line and amazing character development. I loved how dark this novel is and the development and complexity of the relationships.
As for characters: Alison is amazing. She continues to deal with the struggle of monster vs. humanity and I love how realistic it is. She is strong physically, morally and emotionally and it was awesome to see her prevail when these strengths were tested. Zeke, OMG Zeke! Yep, he’s back. He is such a heart throb and I cannot even describe how ecstatic I was to have him be a part of this novel and getting to know him better. Eden changed him for the better and we find him in full suitor mode. Jackal plays a big part in the storyline and boy was I holding a grudge against him from The Immortal Rules. But that couldn’t last forever I guess. He continues to be self motivated and clearly using Alison, but he’s funny and the suspense of never knowing how trustworthy he is helped keep me on the edge of my seat. Kanin continues to be awesome. In this novel we get to know him in weakness, kindness, anger and strength. And last but not least Stick. Boy did he piss me off. He’s a total tool. Well, he is. The thing though that pissed me off the most about him was Alison’s inability to truly see him for what he is and not who he was.
The Eternity Cure is a complete rollercoaster ride. From laughter and tears, to excitement and suspense. I never knew what to expect and loved every single word of it. This book is definitely one I recommend and 100% worth the buzz.
