Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Having been kicked out of Eden, the last stronghold of free humans, teen vampire Allie makes a journey to find her creator, Kanin, who is suffering under the not-so-tender care of utterly psychotic Sarren. As she travels the bleak, dystopian landscape, she reconnects with her wise-cracking, cynical "blood brother," Jackal; her former friend turned bitter enemy, Stick; and her human love, Zeke, whom she left behind in Eden. Allie, Jackal, and Zeke all have their own reasons for wanting to find Kanin and Sarren, so they join in an uneasy alliance to search for the cure for a new and even more virulent strain of Red Lung, the disease that decimated most of humanity. There is plenty of violence and gore, and enough shifting alliances, hidden motives, and romantic angst to keep fans of the previous book, The Immortal Rules (Harlequin, 2012), satisfied. Kagawa leaves readers hanging while they wait for the next book in this intense and thought-provoking series.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

This anticipated sequel to The Immortal Rules (2012) sustains the first volume’s intense pacing, vibrant action, and high-tension drama. Allison, along with her despised vampire “brother” Jackal, seeks their creator, Kanin, in hopes of solving the mystery of the virus that is responsible for both the vampires and the rabids that are hunting them with increasing ferocity and driving them into the sewers, where they encounter the cannibalistic mole men. Kagawa does not shy away from descriptions of torture and cruelty, but Allison is a fierce heroine in both her determination and actions. Her strained relationship with human Zeke is revisited, deepened, and used as a significant plot hinge that should have readers begging for the third volume in the Blood of Eden series. Despite periodic melodrama, this is infused with the moral dilemmas of a society on the brink of destruction, and stocked with continually developing characters whose reactions to these questions are complex and distinct. This series stands out among both its vampire and dystopian contemporaries. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Kagawa scored a hit with the series opener, and major print and online ads, conference promotions, and more should work to make this do likewise. Grades 7-10. --Heather Booth

As someone who thought Immortal Rules was pretty ok "for a vampire book", I can honestly say that The Eternity Cure was pretty freaking awesome PERIOD.

No spoilers here, but just so you know:

--I love Kanin. And this book had enough Kanin to make me happy.
--I was a little ehhh about Zeke in book 1. But now? Zeke is right up there with Kanin for me.
--I thought Allie was pretty cool before, although she did annoy the hell out of me sometimes. But in this second installment, the girl has taken badass to a whole new level and while she did still do some stupid things and act a little too surly sometimes, I love her now more than ever.
--As to all the other characters -- I don't want to say much so as to not give things away, but they are all done fantastically (one in particular really shined above the rest and became a new favorite for me) and all pull at just the right emotions.

And speaking of emotions, holy crap, that ending...prepare yourselves people, because the last 20% of this book is utter madness. The next one cannot come soon enough.

Format: Hardcover
The Eternity Cure picks up a few months after The Immortal Rules leaves off, after Allie has left behind her human friends - including Zeke, the human boy she had grown to love - at Eden, the last remaining vampire-free city. Now she's using her sire bond - a psychic link with the vampire who created her - to track Kanin, and it leads her to her former home, where she encounters a new, deadly plague, as well as some faces from her past she thought were gone forever.

Just like in The Immortal Rules, Julie Kagawa does not shy away from the ugliness of her world. These vampires are not glamorous (even the glamorous ones have an ick-factor), and the world they rule is beyond grim. This is a series where I never feel complacent and I never assume that a character is safe simply because they're important. She keeps the tension high and the action intense from the beginning through to the end, and just when I thought I might get a break -- she'd raise the stakes again.

Some of the secondary characters in The Immortal Rules come front and center in The Eternity Cure, which was awesome. We get to spend a good chunk of time with Jackal, the vampire prince who we last saw staking Allie and throwing her out a window. He returns, dark and snarky as ever, and walks an impressively fine line between villain and reluctant hero. Like all the best villains, he is layered and complex, and is true to himself above all else.

Kanin is also back, and I love him just as much as I did in the first book. I am a sucker for the strong, noble, self-sacrificing type - provided they are not sappy and patronizing - and Kanin fills this role perfectly.

Format: Hardcover
Julie Kagawa's sophomeore book in her Blood of Eden Saga - The Eternity Cure - more than lives up to it's predecesor The Immortal Rules.

There was plenty of action in The Eternity Cure but the pacing was much in slower with a lot of the time spent traveling from site to site and there were many times that I wished for more action... I will admit however, that this did allow for a lot more introspection for the characters and development and growth which I always consider the true building blocks of any great story. In other words - for me - the characters make it.

Allison's character grows throughout as she struggles to find her new place in this upside down world. Where can she fit in? Who can she truly befriend and even love when she fears to trust in even herself let alone others? Can she have and maintain a true relationship?

As Kanin tells Allie:

"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."

We also learn so much more about the hearts and souls of the characters of both Zeke and Kanin and perhaps are able to love them even more because of it. Zeke has matured a lot since first meeting Allie...but he still manages to retain his moral compass despite everything he faces. And Kanin...well Kanin is Kanin...I can't say much more without gushing. I found the exploration of Allison's relationships with each of these two to be one of the most fascinating and heartbreaking facets of the book.

We also meet Jackal again and what an incredibly complex and dark character he is. I hated him, I sympathized with him and most of all I laughed with him. He provided a small bit of humor within a pretty horrific world.

Format: Hardcover
"Eternity Cure" picks up right where "Blood of Eden" left off and keeps the momentum going until the very last page. I have to applaud Ms. Kagawa, once again, for her talents in writing and storytelling. Taking an overworked storyline, like vampires, and making it new, and fresh, and serious, is a hard thing to do, but she does not disappoint.

Just like "Blood of Eden", "Eternity Cure" is filled with fights, blood, revenge, and betrayal. There's even a bit of forbidden love to keep those romantics happy. But in the end, it's a tough book with an even tougher female lead. Allie is everything a protagonist in a post-apocalyptic, vampire-run world: Brave, smart, leery, and rough; but not without a dark sense of humor and a little bit of humanity still intact.

I've said it before, this is, hands down, my favorite vampire series and my favorite of Julie's books. Definitely worth the read.

Rating: 4.5/5, and a strong PG-13 for the amount of violence and blood between the covers.
