Review - The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa

The Forever Song (Blood of Eden, #3)Vengeance will be hers.

Allison Sekemoto once struggled with the question: human or monster? With the death of her love, Zeke, she has her answer.


Allie will embrace her cold vampire side to hunt down and end Sarren, the psychopathic vampire who murdered Zeke. But the trail is bloody and long, and Sarren has left many surprises for Allie and her companions - her creator Kanin, and her blood brother, Jackal. The trail is leading straight to the one place they must protect at any cost - the last vampire-free zone on Earth, Eden. And Sarren has one final, brutal shock in store for Allie.

In a ruined world where no life is sacred and former allies can turn on you in one heartbeat, Allie will face her darkest days. And if she succeeds, her triumph will be short-lived in the face of surviving forever alone.

...Wow. Julie Kagawa never fails to deliver! After the ending of The Eternity Cure, the wait for the final book in the Blood of Eden trilogy seemed endless. And now, after devouring it in a day, I can't believe it's over!

Picking up where the last book left off...well, I don't want to spoil it. But Allison was in a pretty dark place at the end of the second book, and here, we really see her struggle against her inner "monster", her vampire side, as she hunts down the deadly, psychopathic vampire Sarren. Julie Kagawa delivers yet another page-turning read with some seriously intense action sequences! Jackal, the antihero, provides humourous moments to balance out the darkness. The suspense and action are at an all-time high, and the unpredictable storyline races along through terrifying twists and turns. This was one gripping read!

This is a fantastic book with a very satisfying ending to the series. I have read every one of Julie Kagawa's books and I've loved all of them (which is a rarity for me!) - if you're looking for stellar young adult fiction, you can't go wrong with this!

Rating: *****

  1. It's always great to reach the end of a series and have a satisfying ending. After you've invested so much time, it sucks to be disappointed.
