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.

Redundant

I know the author was trying to instill the sense of constant struggle with the vampire hunger by the second book is was getting to the point of eye rolling every time I heard about it and nearly quit listening to this book because it was the exact same thing all over again. The story was cliche and predictable. Not to say it was bad but the only twist that I actually was somewhat surprised by was just after one of the final fight scenes. I won’t say anymore so as to avoid spoilers for others. I loved the first book, enjoyed the second, and kept hitting play just to say I’d finished the third.

Props to the narrator she did a very good job consistently trying to give each character a unique voice and show the emotion in the situation.

Good but choose new words!!

I got caught up in the series from the prequel. Once I finished book 1 I needed to see it through. However, there are so many references to folks eyes (the sapphire eyes, the park white orbs, the intense eyes, etc.) I’ve got it! And there s a lot of whirling and baring fangs and roaring. I think it could have done without all of hat soooo often.
