Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: April 30th 2013
Young Adult Rating: 3 Stars ——————————————————————————————————————————
“In Allison Sekemoto’s world, there is one rule left: Blood calls to blood.
She has done the unthinkable: died so that 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.”
Expectation: I received this novel courtesy of Netgalley. I really enjoyed the first book and I’m interested to see what happens with Allison and Zeke.
My Thoughts: The same thing happened with this book that happened in the first book. The beginning took me AWHILE to get into. Once I got into it though I was golden. I flew through the book. I read a bit more than half the book in a day. Which for me doesn’t happen often. My biggest complaint for this book though was the repetitiveness of some of the characters. They I feel overused the pet names a bit. There was a different pet name for Allison for I think every other main character. But it wasn’t that big of a deal. The plot got really thick and while it wasn’t totally surprising I still wanted to keep reading. The ending was perfect. I can’t think of any other better way of ending the book. I will most definitely be reading the third book whenever it comes out. I’m really interested to see how relationships change in the third book and where the plot goes. Some of the characters though were really thought out and complex. Sarren was wonderfully portrayed. I’m still not sure how I feel about Jackal’s character but I’m sure the third book I will get a better feeling for him. Overall I’m giving this book a three. If I have half stars it would be a 3.5 almost four but because of my struggle with it in the beginning I’m giving it a 3. I think the new cover is alright, I feel about the same about it as I did with the first cover. I still love the series and will be continuing. ——————————————————————————————————————————
