“Out here in the Fringes, there is only one rule: Blood calls to blood. She has done the unthinkable: died so she might continue to live. Now Allie, the reluctant teenage vampire who was cast out of Eden, and Zeke, the human boy who loves her, must attempt to save the world from a deadly new strain of plague. In order to do so, they must first hunt down the monster who holds the promise of the cure—and Allie’s beloved mentor—in his sadistic grip.
Joined by Allie’s blood brother, Jackal, this unlikely posse of companions will brave a landscape stalked by raiders, rabids, and rogue vampires. But even if they survive, they’re bound for the Inner city, and a vicious showdown that will test their bonds in ways they never expected. It may just be that becoming undead was the easy part. Confronting the horrors of Allie’s awakening hunger, her growing feelings for Zeke, and the uncertainties of their future is going to be the ultimate challenge.”
Julie Kagawa has been one of my favorite authors ever since I read The Iron King, and I am continually blown away by her work. Since having my daughter in August, I hadn’t requested (or even looked at) NetGalley. I freaked out when I browsed through the YA titles and saw The Eternity Cure was still there! It was a day or two before the release, so I was really surprised. Totally was not expecting to be approved, but did a little happy dance when I was!
