In Allison Sekemoto’s world, there is one rule left: Blood calls to blood.
She has done the unthinkable: died so that she 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.
So, I thought this book was great. I’m going to be honest, though, and say I didn’t like it as much as the first because I felt like it suffered from a slow start. The first few pages started out with a bang. From there, the action dropped off a bit and didn’t pick up until about 100 pages in.
Allie remains her badass self, strolling around with her Katana and no-nonsense attitude, but she is also a little more whiny and judgmental in this one. Zeke is still the nice guy but rougher around the edges. Kanin and Jackal are the actual stars of the show. And Sarren is just about one of the creepiest and most sadistic villains out there.
The plot is good, if not predictable in quite a few places, but there ARE a few twists and turns that really give the story that extra boost of awesome.
Can’t wait to read the last book!
