Julie Kagawa's -The Eternity Cure
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.
After being rejected from Eden for being a vampire, Allison makes the decision to follow the callings of her maker, Kanin. Kanin is currently being tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. Allie can feel Kanin’s pain through their blood connection, and it’s drawing her to him.
During her travels she comes across Jackal, and gets mixed up in the search for an abandoned laboratory that is now infested with Rabids. Allison must use her Katana skills to protect herself.
She learns that Sarren is connected to the new danger that has taken over New Covington; something deadly that is affecting not only the humans, but vampires. She finds herself going back home, a place she never thought she’d ever return to.
With a lot of travelling, action scenes and twists to the plot, the story is progressed through the dialogue and connections between the characters. Dark secrets, lies and hidden agendas all come to a head by the end. Humor and emotions are relayed through the voices of the characters giving this story a fun and action-filled read.
Allison’s quest is to find her master and save not only him, but help to find a cure to save everyone from the Red Lung Virus. The pull to be both vampire, yet still connect with the human side, is a constant dilemma for her.
The Eternity Cure is a story with a truly evil villain, and a main character who still shows her human vulnerability in her concern for the well being of others.
