Book Review: The Eternity Cure
Book 2 in the Blood of Eden series
AUTHOR: Julie Kagawa
PUBLISHED: April 2013
GENRE: Vampires, Dystopian
PREMISE: Allison goes to rescue her creator, Kamin and along the way has to enlist the help of her enemy Jackal and the human she fell in love with who now knows what she is: Zeke.
MY REVIEW: The best thing about Kagawa's writing is, she knows how to spin a story. She keeps you turning the pages, she knows how to get you to pick up the next book, in short she's smart about her writing. Sometimes smart writing is what it takes to become a bestseller.
Yes, she still has the problem with cliche dialogue (So. Many. Monologueing villains/heroes). Yes, I still don't see why Allison/Zeke are THE it couple and why I should root for them to be together. Honest? I actually saw more chemistry between Allison and Jackal but Jackal's the villain so....But despite flaws, this series is still entertaining as hell.
This was very much a second book (that had a very evil cliffhanger) so much of it is mostly exposition. If you're a fan of the first one, you won't be disappointed. Unless, like me, you just don't find Zeke all that interesting and kind of want him to go away.
WHO SHOULD READ: Iron Fey fans, Julie Kagawa fans, vampire fans
MY RATING: Four out of Five boring love interests
