The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa Book Review

Standard

the forever song

 

Blurb:

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.

Monster.

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.

THE FINAL HUNT IS ON.

 

OH MY GOD!

The last Blood of Eden book.

ZEKE!

MY EZEKIEL CROSSE!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Anyway haha

This book was the perfect conclusion to the others.

I loved it.

Following on from the events of book two 😥 it sees Allie, Kanin and Jackal on the hunt for Sarren before he destroys Eden and the world with his new virus.

Allie is coming to terms with loosing Zeke 😥 and is trying hard to not let the monster in her surface but that is easier said than done when the loss of Zeke is still fresh her mind. She does let go of her humanity slowly but she does manage to claw it back when she sees a scene that reminds her of her past.

Jackal is being his normal sarcastic way and is trying everything to wind up Allie. Although he does redeem himself in someways.

Kanin is determined to try and keep Allie ‘human’ but he knows that Zeke was her link to all that and he knows that he is slowly loosing his favourite child.

All of that comes to a head though when they reach Jackal’s old kingdom.

In there they think resides Sarren and Allie is more than content to chop of his head. When an explosion causes Allie to lose sight of Kanin and Jackal she goes on ahead to defeat Sarren… and gets a nasty surprise!

Zeke is alive… but not in the way she thought. He’s been turned against his will and been brainwashed into destroying Allie.

Allie can’t believe that the boy she loves is alive and is reluctant to fight him but she knows she has too in order to save her life.

However Allie does manage to get through to him and he manages to show some sembelance to the old Zeke. Even though he is wracked with guilt over what his done and is determined to face the sun once all of this is over and Sarren is defeated.

Things do turn out for the best though and Zeke realises that Allie has been there for him through everything and grabs hold of the one good thing in his life; her.

Queue some blood taking while having sex (YES YES YES! DO YOU HAV ANY IDEA HOW LONG I HAVE WAITED FOR THEM TO DO IT??!!! haha)

Then eventually comes the final showdown with Sarren but all is not as it seems. Jackal has become infected with the disease, Kanin makes the ultimate sacrifice and Allie and Zeke must facedown Sarren on their own.

I’m not spoiling the ending but it was so bittersweet and beautiful. The feels in this book was all over the place.

“Say you love me, vampire girl,” he whispered, his voice low and husky. “Tell me…that this is forever.”
“I love you,” I said immediately. “And if we have forever, there’s no one else I want to spend it with.”

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I loved this book, it was perfect for the series. Full of action and fighting and blood and guts. Rabids in abundance, crazy vampires, a sarcastic blood brother, a lovable Maker and of course the one constant thing in the book… The love between Allie and Zeke.

I think that the whole Vampire Dystopian thing was amazing! Combining two of my favourite genres together Julie managed to make an amazing and un-put-down-able series.

I will miss this series but I’m glad it ended on a good note. One that was full of promises but left you thinking that there was going to be more challenges ahead for them.

Oh and Julie?

Could you maybe write a book on Jackal?

Even though he gets on everyone’s nerves and can switch sides with the flick of your wrist, he is without a doubt brilliant! I want to know what happens to him! I want him to find love. He deserves it.

Brilliant brilliant brilliant
