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 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!
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!
I really enjoyed the Immortal Rules, which had a unique premise and some interesting twists and turns. However, this sequel was somewhat lacking. I thought it was fairly dull in a number of places, and it was a bit too predictable. It took Allie too long to reach a number of conclusions/make logical leaps that the reader probably guessed chapters earlier. Like most YA books in this genre, there's romance but the characters shy away from sex, which is eye-roll inducing. I always find that kind of funny -- plenty of blood, gore and violence is just fine, but heaven forbid the characters do anything more than kiss. I can definitely overlook that juvenile aspect of YA books if the story is good enough (e.g., the Hunger Games), but here, the story really just didn't cut it.

I really enjoyed the 1st book & I adore the 2ed. Same narrator-awesome! Same heart pounding moments, adventure, crazy creatures who want to eat you & characters who make you invest all you have as you read. When I same "same" I mean quality. I mean what I've come to expect from Julie Kagawa. This book progresses w/ease. It's a fantastic 2ed installment. I can't wait to get the 3rd-it's preordered-that's how much I love this series.
I'll read anything good. I'm easy that way.
Right now, I am waiting for the third book in this series due out next month, (April 15th), and debating whether or not to listen right away, or wait a while and then start the series from the beginning. Hmmmmm. Decisions, decisions.
I don't think I can wait. The first two were that good.
I really loved the phenomenal performance by Therese Plummer. She really brought this series to life. I wish she read more of my favorite books. She's perfection.
yes - great storyline and performed very well.
When Sarin tortures Ezekial and Allison thinks he's dead.
She makes the characters come alive.
I was interested in this book. It kept my attention and the ending has me longing to read the third book. It is a very good twist on the nosferatu and I enjoy listening to it.
The book has a great story line.
Therese Plummer is one of my favorite narrators, I have never been disappointed by her.
They will do anything to find a cure!
