The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa
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. (Goodreads)
The Eternity Cure is a great follow up to the first book in the Blood of Eden series, The Immortal Rules (check out my review)!
We catch up with Ally, the MC, as she's searching for her sire (Kanin, the vampire who turned her). He was captured by the insane, evil vampire Sarren and Ally is determined to rescue him. Because of their "family" connection, Ally can see the torture Kanin is suffering in her dreams. It's almost like a psychic connection due to their blood bond.
Ally runs into a few old friends as she's tracking Kanin, some more welcome than others. I really liked that Ally has become stronger and can take care of herself now, although she does need help to get out of a few tight spots. I like my heroines to be able to take care of themselves, but not turn into a superhero. Does that make sense?
Lots of adventure in this one, with some surprising plot twists! Sarren is crazy bad, but Ally can hold her own (with a little help from her friends). Really loving the new Ally!
Julie Kagawa is one of my favorite authors, and I'm starting to like this series as much as her Iron Fey series! She's a really talented writer with a great imagination, and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next! I would recommend reading the series in order, as it explains everyone's relationship and why they may act the way they do.
