The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

Genre:  YA Paranormal Dystopian
Blood of Eden Series, Book 2
Expected publication date:  April 30, 2013

Description (taken from Goodreads):
Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally.

Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.

First off, I have to say something about the cover.  It's not near as striking as the first book's cover.  So my main motivation to read this one came directly from the first book's plot.  Because holy crap, that was a good read!

We get to see more of the characters from the first book.  Kanin, Sarren, Zeke, a pesky little raider king, Salazar, and more that I don't really want to divulge in (because you might hit me with a shoe if I gave too much away).  This book works on adding dimension to these characters.  And like the first book, this book involves a journey.  A journey to find Sarren and beat the crap out of him (well not really, but I wish it were so).  More like trying to find a cure for the new Red Lung strain that's killing off the blood supply.

Honestly, I thought this book was alright while reading it.  In the back of my mind, I kept thinking, "That's it?!  Something else has to happen!  Something big that's going to blow me away!  Now happen, now!!!"  Well, it does happen.  And now I need to read the third one right now...  Grr...

Thanks goes to Harlequin Teen and Netgalley for my review copy.
