The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) by Julie Kagawa

Book Summery (Via Goodreads): 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.

Book Review:
I honestly don't even know where to begin. I gulped this beauty down, despite it's daunting length. The pages fly by in this epic tale. I really enjoyed enjoyed The Immortal Rules. However, Kagawa kicks it up a notch (or ten) in The Eternity Cure. Allison's character is even more complex as she struggles to balance the human and vampire inside of her. Her search for Kanin is dire and she must overcome some challenging obstacles to find him. This second installment of the Blood of Eden is even more gritty, adventurous, and nail-biting than The Immortal Rules. Trust me, that is saying something. As a reader, I am even more attached to the characters this time around. I became totally enveloped in the story, cheering on Allison and her crew as they fight against all odds. Secrets are revealed. Boundaries are crossed. Romance is in bloom. I don't want to ruin the story line for those who haven't read The Immortal Rules, but if you haven't read this series, what is stopping you?!

Thanks to Harlequin Teen for this copy.

This is my honest review. 

Favorite Quote:
“There are no good choices, Allison," Kanin offered in a quiet voice. "There are only those you can live with, and those you can work to change.” 

Cover Art Commentary:
I'm not usually a fan of switching covers mid-series, but I am totally in love with the new covers! It's so refreshing to have bold colors and patterns on YA covers! I can't wait to see the cover of the next book!
