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!
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!
When Ally found her old friend...Not a spoiler I hope...
The voices per character were distinctive
I would have to think on it...
haven't got there yet still trying to get past the Narrator's whispers...
Her first performance was Spot On...her performance in this book would be awesome if she would level her voice instead of whispering when reading the main characters voice.
If she reads the next book please please please speak up.
It was an excellent continuation of the journey for Allie.
The dynamics of Jackle and Allie coming together under a united front and seeing that she finally shows Z what she really feels for him. I have to say that I loved the ending.
I think that she is one of the best Narrators that I have ever listened to, and I have heard a lot.
I actually cried and laughed to the point that my husband thought I was a little crazy when I would just bust out with laughter.
LOVED< LOVED< LOVED this book!!!!!
This my Fav series!!
For me it kinda had a Hunger Games/ Divergent/feel, with a hint twilight (don't worry though the vampires don't sparkle ;P) . That totally doesn't do it justice, but this is definitely a MUST read soooo good!
Jackal, I love the bad boys of the story best, but really I love all the characters even the villains; which is probably the first time I could ever say that about a book.
Wanted to and did!! I couldn't out it down, good thing my job allows ipods because it had such an enticing story line and such 3dimensional characters you get sucked into the world!!
Well I think I have said it all but anyway, this is a must read and I HIGHLY recommend it! The story line is great, the voice acting is great and the characters are absolutely fantastic! Also it has Zombies... Who doesn't love a good Zombie!!! XD
Fantasy & Sci-Fi lover who mostly refuses to read books without their audiobook counterparts. How else can a girl get any housework done?
Most definitely! The brutal & harsh dystopian universe Julie Kagawa has created is quite fascinating with a protagonist who is strong, layered & someone you can easily root for. I loved the first book/audiobook of this new series & this one topped it tenfold! There was so much action & suspense in this book, but it didn't overshadow the important character development that takes place with the characters, nor did the character development overshadow the action & suspense. It was a beautiful balance that only great storytellers can truly pull off. It did start off a tad bit slow in the beginning, but trust me, it picks up about 1/3 into the book & doesn't stop until the very end! I lost a lot of sleep over the past two days, b/c I could not stop listening. I was cleaning my house way past 2am, just so I had an excuse to keep listening. By the way, expect one heck of a cliffhanger! I was practically screaming at the very end & woke my poor husband & dog up. lol
While the market is currently heavily saturated with vampire & zombie books, this book/series is unique in its own right, so I find it quite difficult to compare it with other books. The protagonist, Allison, sort of reminds me of Sita from 'The Last Vampire'/'Thirst' series, by Christopher Pike...that is, before he decided to re-launch the series, thus messing up a good thing. Both Allison & Sita are vampires, trying so hard to cling to their lost humanity. Their desire to connect with humans is very strong, but a constant uphill battle & their characters are neither good, nor bad...neither black or white, but multiple shades of gray, which is much more realistic for a vampire, who's main source of nutrition is humans' blood.
No, I have only listened to her with this series. I thought she was great & truly nailed the voice of Allie. The only negative would be her voice for Sarren, which was way too hammy & whispery. Other than that though, I loved her & really hope she will stick with this series.
I also really enjoyed the the slow-building relationship between blood-siblings, Allie & Jackal. Actually, I really enjoyed Jackal's character development throughout the whole book. The only slight negative I have about the story would be Allie's extended monologuing about fighting her inner monster. But like I said, it's only a very slight negative & it doesn't make the story any less awesome. And last but not least, ZEEEEEEKE!!! Allie's relationship with Zeke is both fascinating & heartbreakingly tragic. I am DYING for the next book!!!
