In Allison Sekemoto's world, there is one rule left: Blood calls to blood.
She has done the unthinkable: died so that he might continue to live. Cast out of Eden and separated from the boy she dared to love, Allie will follow the call of blood to save her creator, Kanin, from the psychotic vampire Sarren. But when the trail leads to Allie's birthplace in New Covington, what Allie finds there will change the world forever - and possibly end human and vampire existence.
There's a new plague on the rise, a strain of the Red Lung virus that wiped out most of humanity generations ago - and this strain is deadly to humans and vampires alike. The only hope for a cure lies in the secrets Kanin carries, if Allie can get to him in time.
Allison thought that immortality was forever. But now, with eternity itself hanging in the balance, the lines between human and monster will blur even further, and Allie must face another choice she could never have imagined having to make.

I loved everything about this book. The story, the characters and the narrator was amazing in her performance. Loved my Zeke and Allie moments.
I really dislike when authors write an engaging action story, then interject a constant babble of romance. Time is short to save someone, or do something, but no, I have to listen to several minutes of babble! Really irritating!
Listening to stories as I drive to and from work is the best, making the drive a little more tolerable.
It's so intense, annoying, frustrating, scary, and emotionally draining! I am not sure how much I like...but I have to get the next book! whew!
A deep, dark and truly spectacular read at every turn. Julie Kagawa has yet again allowed me into her broken world of vampires and I have not been disappointed!
Adding to this the absolutely outstanding narrative performance of Therese Plummer and her fine grasp of each of the characters of the story made for a gripping tale!
If you like dark stories with the best narration available get this book.
80% of my day my ear has a story running it. *LOL*
I loved this book. better then then first and I thought the first one WAS great. kept me on the edge of my seat. scary, loving, emotional, u feel theses characters! A+++
Therese is AMAZING! She's easily 1 of the best narrators I have encountered so far here. The series just keeps getting better and better and Julie Kagawa might just be 1 of my new favorite authors. I love how she adds little things and makes great characters even greater. the character of Jackal is great and Sarren is a freaking psycho!
I have to say that I anticipated almost every major event before they happened. That and a rather annoying lack of risk mitigation by our young heroine (?) pushed the rating down to a 4 for me.
That said, I still am very much enjoying the story, the characters and the world building so I am on now to the to final book (which I wish was available in audio...I love this narrator)!
