Allison has found Eden. Allison has left Eden and the human she cares for behind. Now, she is on a mission to find and rescue her sire from the clutches of a crazy vampire. But as she finally nears him, it turns out that it wasn’t her sire’s ‘presence’ that she’s been following, but her blood brother Jackal. The last time she saw him he stabbed her with a stake and she pushed him out a window. But instead of resuming their fight, he has a proposition for her. He wants to put their fight on hold, and go to an old lab in Old D.C. to try and find a cure for Rabidism.
At first, she isn’t too keen on the idea, she really needs to go and find Kanin before he succumbs to the stake in his chest, but eventually she agrees. When they get there though, someone else has already been there and has taken the living cultures of the Red Lung disease from the fridge. Both of them know it’s Sarren and it isn’t until Allie really thinks about it that she realizes where to go next. A place she thought she’d never go back to again. New Covington and while there she runs into a few faces she never thought to see again.
The Eternity Cure was just as good as the first book, if not better. The character of Jackal really grew on me and I’m kind of curious to see what happens with him in the final book. Kanin is still his usual calm and collected self, which considering what he’s been through and what happened to him afterwards I was kind of shocked. Allie is still dealing with the true monster within her, and it doesn’t help when Zeke ends up in New Covington looking for her.
Final Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. This Sarren guy just won’t die and now he’s trying to create a superplague? Dude. What is his deal? And that ending! I really need to get my hands on the next book, like yesterday!
