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.

This book was all over the place in a good way. My heart is still racing from the last half hour.
1) Cliffhanger ending, so if you need closure, wait for the next book.
2) Very violent at times and downright disturbing at others...in case that bothers you.
The heroine's inner monologues get a little tiresome and the humanity vs. monster battle isn't always consistent. However, she is easy to cheer for and swings a mean blade. Her strength, self-confidence and attitude all spike in this book. Supporting characters are very well-developed...love them, hate them, cry for them, want to slap them, and so on.
The Eternity Cure is full of substance, well-written and well-executed. I was fully engrossed in the story and found it hard to stop listening...exactly what I seek when choosing an audiobook.
Fiction: I like Paranormal, Young Adult, Historical, Fantasy, Romance, Classics. Non-Fiction: I like Historical, Military, Memoirs.
Yes, I would. I am enjoying this series so far. I have enjoyed pretty much everything Julie Kagawa writes. This follow-up to The Immortal Rules wasn't as strong as the first book, but the ending packed a powerful punch and I'm looking forward to the next instalment.
Yes. I would recommend The Eternity Cure (and the Blood of Eden series) to people who enjoy paranormal or dystopian/post-apocalyptic stories. It's a vampire story with a post-apocalyptic twist, and a nice change of pace from typical YA vampire books.
Therese Plummer does a great job, once again. She narrates as if she's telling her own story, really bringing it to life through the eyes of Allison.
Near the end, when Zeke relays his message to Allie on the laptop. Very moving.
I didn't enjoy The Eternity Cure as much as I enjoyed The Immortal Rules, but I'm still looking forward to the next book. The ending made up for the two or three occasions when I thought the story line was moving a bit slowly. I also like that the author left us with a cliffhanger ending that, while leaving us wondering what will happen next, isn't so abrupt as to completely frustrate the readers (I'm talking to you, Kresley Cole!).
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
The twist and turns, just when you think you know what is going to happen it goes in another direction. Heart pounding none stop action. Heart wrenching edge of your seat.
Can't pick just one, they all have qualities I love! From Zeke's caring, to Allison kick but take no prisoners attitude, to Kane's determination, to Jackal's snarky wit.
Therese is one of a few that can really bring a book to life.
I laughed, I cried, I wanted to beg!
I can't wait for the next book in this series to see just what will happens! This book has so many emotions and heart stopping pounding action hang by the edge of your seat scenes, just when you think they are gone HERE they come again!
Story was awesome. Couldn't put it down. Read the whole thing in 4 days. Talking about addictive. Not giving away the ending but OMG what an ending!!!! I really really hope this is the next book series to skyrocket into fame because it's definitely as good as any other. Wooohooo book three here I come!
A huge fan of audiobooks and have heard many performers but I would have to say Therese Plummer is my absolute favorite. The different voices are perfect to picture the different characters. The way she tells the story you just really imagine someone is telling you the story that really lived through the experience. Her voice even trembles when she's sad/upset. Not only is she storytelling but she's acting the part and making you believe every moment of it. She rocks!
You might as well dub the book as 'Rollercoaster Ride Extremus Maximus.'
Ms. Kagawa, you squeezed my little bookworm heart like a sponge and left it out to dry on a bloody sink. But I must be a masochist, because I love you. You are amazeballs. I'm surprised to admit these series are a total contender for my all-time favorite, The 5th Wave.
The characters and their development are amazingly well written. These are the type of books that not only do you enjoy, but they leave you with a lasting impression, and you are saddened to part ways with the characters once you finish their stories. Another diamond in the rough.
If you are into romance stories, go ahead and dive in. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Why did you let Zeke die? You should have made him a Vampire! Or let him live and have him and Allie have a happy ending together! Well, at least Allie has something to remember Zeke! I hope that she doesn't lose it in the next book!
I really enjoyed hearing more about Allie and her growth as a vampire. I was also excited to hear more about Kanin and Sarren. They didn't get enough of a presence in the first book, so I loved that this book included more of them and their history.
The emotional roller coasters that the characters go through,their development, is all very realistic and relatable. I get very frustrated when characters have no growth whatsoever or make odd leaps in how they think or feel. In this book, the characters all struggle, both with themselves and others, in ways that progress naturally.
Therese Plummer is very good at portraying the emotional states of her characters without going over the top. She also does the male voices superbly. A lot of times narrators have difficulties with voices of the opposite gender, but Therese gives each person their own voice and character that makes for excellent listening.
This wasn't a book that had me so drawn in that I would want to listen to it all at once. Although, there were parts where I dreaded having to stop it because I needed to listen to it just 5 minutes more.
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!
