 Description (from Goodreads):
In Allison Sekemoto's world, there is one rule left: Blood calls to blood

She has done the unthinkable: died so that she 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.

My Thoughts:
The Eternity Cure was a lot more than I expected. More kickass, more action-packed, more emotional and the characters were just so damn beautiful. I fell in love with them and they managed to take me on the most emotional rollercoaster that I have taken so far this year, and for a quite awhile before that too.

While I enjoyed
The Immortal Rules, I wasn't really that impressed with it. It was kind of what I expected. I liked Allie. I loved Kanin. I didn't like Zeke. But I enjoyed the mystery and though the plot was a little too slow-paced for my liking, I was kept engaged and was eager to begin The Eternity Cure.

What a bloody amazing book this turned out to be.

While some people don't like to be heartbroken or thrown through the metaphorical blender when it comes to reading books, I, personally, love it. There is something beautiful about being moved so much by a book that it can make you cry and laugh and scream and make you want to through the book into a wall.
The Eternity Cure didn't fail to do this to me. I was eagerly gripping the pages, turning them as quickly as I could, wanting more and more.

I loved all the characters so much my heard was bursting each time something even remotely action-packed happened and I was worried she would hurt one of the characters.

There isn't much more that I can say without spoiling anything. I will say that I fell in love with one particular character that I shan't name but lets say that they make an unexpected reappearance which is the best thing that happened in the entire book. It took me on a rollercoaster of feelings and emotions. I cried, I laughed, I screamed, and then cried and laughed and screamed some more. Definitely a great read. If you were iffy towards
The Immortal Rules then cast aside your worries and dive heads first into The Eternity Cure. I promise it won't disappoint. Now I am simply dying to read The Forever Song.
