These vampires don’t sparkle…they bite.
Book 2 of the Blood of Eden trilogy by Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Fey, continues the enthralling dark fantasy series where vampires rule, humans are prey, and one girl will become what she hates most to save all she loves.
Blood calls to blood.
Exposed, betrayed, reviled… Allison Sekemoto has been cast out of Eden and separated from the human boy she dared to love. Now she must follow the call of blood to save her vampire creator, Kanin, from the twisted and evil vampire Sarren. When the trail leads to her birthplace, she learns of a new threat that may end human and vampire existence forever. The only hope to stop it lies in the secrets Kanin carries—if Allie can get to him in time.
She thought immortality was forever. But with eternity itself hanging in the balance, the line between human and monster will blur even further, forcing Allie to make another impossible choice.
“Intense pacing, vibrant action, and high-tension drama…this series stands out.” —Booklist
Books in the Blood of Eden series:
The Immortal Rules
The Eternity Cure
The Forever Song
Following hard on the heels of the events of 2012's The Immortal Rules, Kagawa's robust sequel increases both the tension and the body count. Having left her friends in the human sanctuary of Eden, Allison Sekemoto is searching for Kanin, her vampire sire and mentor. Following the draw of her blood-tie, she instead finds her ruthless, pirate-raider blood brother, Jackal, who has a tempting proposal: help him find a hidden laboratory that might contain a cure for the Red Lung plague, and he'll help her find Kanin. Instead, they discover that their common enemy the psychotic vampire Sarren has Kanin, has beaten them to the lab, and is prepared to release an even deadlier strain of the virus. When Sarren's trail leads Allie back to her hometown, unlikely allies race to stop Sarren before vampires and humans alike are wiped out. Allie doesn't get much development, and her romantic interactions lack chemistry, but Jackal reaps the benefit of Kagawa's attention and becomes an intriguingly complex character. While neatly setting up the final book, Kagawa's vivid prose and unexpected plot developments will keep fans entranced. Ages 14 up.
