Publisher's Summary

Vengeance will be hers.

Allison Sekemoto once struggled with the question: human or monster? With the death of her love, Zeke, she has her answer.

Monster

Allie will embrace her cold vampire side to hunt down and end Sarren, the psychopathic vampire who murdered Zeke. But the trail is bloody and long, and Sarren has left many surprises for Allie and her companions - her creator, Kanin, and her blood brother, Jackal. The trail is leading straight to the one place they must protect at any cost - the last vampire-free zone on Earth, Eden. And Sarren has one final, brutal shock in store for Allie. In a ruined world where no life is sacred and former allies can turn on you in one heartbeat, Allie will face her darkest days. And if she succeeds, triumph is short-lived in the face of surviving forever alone.

    "Fantastic, Dark Kagawa"

    This is Julie Kagawa at her darkest and I loved every minute of it. Whereas the Iron Fey series was romantic and adventurous, the Blood of Eden series was dark and sinister. The romance was there, too, but this final book in the trilogy, especially, was gory and bellicose and it might be my new favourite Julie Kagawa book.

    Therese Plummer was fantastic, once again. She ranks as one of the best audiobook narrators out there, in my opinion. Julie Kagawa fans have been lucky because her audiobooks have the best narrators.

    Like The Iron Traitor, it took A LONG time for the audiobook version of The Forever Song to be released (9 months after the hardcover was released). I hope this isn't going to be a recurring thing with Julie Kagawa books. Because it had been so long since I last listened to the previous book (The Eternity Cure), I should have re-familiarized myself with the story. I found myself rewinding a lot in the beginning to try to figure out what was going on and where the characters had left off in the last story, so word to the wise--go back to the first two audiobooks and refresh your memory on the Blood of Eden world before resuming with book 3.

    One final thing: I started this series with my pre-teen daughter but I think I'm going to put off listening to this one with her. It's a lot gorier (there are a couple of graphic passages about tortured or disembowelled bodies) and, for whatever reason, the author decided to really ramp up the F-bombs in this book. As an adult and fan of Julie Kagawa, it didn't faze me at all, but as a mother, I had to question the gratuitous swearing. It didn't add anything to the story and could have been left out without losing any of the emotion. That's a minor nitpick, however.

    "Excellent end to the trilogy!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because even though parts of the entire series broke my heart, I loved the way it all ends. It left me satisfied when it was over.

    "overall great, only a couple of catches."

    overall it was a great read that I struggled to put down, with only a couple caveats. First and foremost, every time the author wrote that her blood ran cold, or turned to ice, I rolled my eyes at how repetitive it got. the second is that the narrator seemed to struggle a bit with the male characters, but was otherwise we'll suited for this.

    the books themselves were targeted towards young adult readers, but with more of a dark undertone than you may be used to seeing in a regular ya book.

    "Kick #ss Vamp story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yep, pulled me right in


    Would you recommend The Forever Song to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yep, nasty villain, blood, gore, young love, whats not to like. Check out the previous books though.


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    I like the main character, but had a fondness for Jackal. I really enjoyed Therese Plummer's style and been checking out more books read by her.


    Any additional comments?

    Nothing you should overanalyze, just have fun reading. It's worth the listen.

    "Very good overall"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, definitely. I've never read or listened to a book that had so many characters that I wanted to punch in the face (in a good way!). Great action, vivid descriptions, and interesting concept.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Has to be Jackal, aka James. His one-liners are hilarious and he just NEVER SHUTS UP!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Tone down the drama. Not everything is life and death.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really. Just a good book overall.


    Any additional comments?

    One big negative (particularly for the audiobook) was the author's tendency to REPEAT phrases over and over ad nauseum. This might not be something that might be picked up on when actually reading the book, but it was so unbearably annoying listening to the same lines again and again. Case in point..."All I could think about was how much I wanted to grab him and sink my fangs into his throat." In all seriousness, this line was repeated more than fifty times in this book alone. I actually had a running tally going as I listened. This would be a great drinking game if you had to take a shot every time this line was read. You'd be drunk in no time!

    "Boring and repetative"

    I was disappointed with this book, but could see it coming since book two was getting a bit boring too. I loved the first book and was excited to find a new series that was different than other books I read.

    Unfortunately, this book was the same thing over and over - Allison's inner thoughts about how she was struggling to not be a monster. First she doesn't care anymore, then she's horrified at what she's thinking. How she's horrible for thinking about harming humans, how Kanin will be disappointed with her. These thoughts described in painful detail over and over. How much she loves Zeke. How everything bad is her fault in some way, etc. People being tortured, rabids attacking, more travel. Sarren's creepy voice. Repeat repeat repeat. I really just didn't care anymore.

    The only character I enjoy anymore is Jackal, but there wasn't enough of him to justify sticking with the book. I quit a third of the way through the book because I could predict the ending and it was just too boring to get there. I would have liked it better if she paired up with Jackal and ruled Chicago or something. I kept wanting her to dump Zeke for Jackal the entire series, but it never happened.

    "Great story, sad reading"

    The whispering for the quiet parts is incredibly annoying due to the fact that you have to turn up the volume just to hear
