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.

Love the story, HATE the language

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I would have given this 5 stars IF it wasn't littered with foul language. The same characterization can be expressed without subjecting the reader/listener to such language.

What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Therese Plummer amazed me with her vocal acting talents. Thought about it over and over as I listened. Her male voices sounded male. Her emotion seemed perfect to me.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Story and writing are excellent, but the foul language really ruins a good book for me. This series is aimed at YA! I don't think it belongs in any books, but CERTAINLY NOT in something for teens. Though I listened to the whole series, I will never recommend it to anyone else simply because of the language.

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.

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.

disappointed

I was severely disappointed with this book. I LOVED the first 2 books but this 1 was such a let down. Both Allison and Zeke were SO ANNOYING!!!! and I found myself just wanting to be done with this book. I was very close to just leaving it unfinished but didn't want to do that. The saving grace at least for me was Jackal he was AWESOME! and the only reason I finished this book well one of the reasons anyway. Also though she did a wonderful job with the first 2 books Therese kinda over did it with the emotional voice
