Title – Dawn of Eden Author – Julie Kagawa Series: Blood of Eden Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥
If you follow my blog (maybe), you’ll know that I LOVE Julie Kagawa’s Blood of Eden series. I gobbled that bad boy up in days and when I finished The Forever Song, I cried because the emotional whirlwind of plague, friendship and general badass-ery was over.
UNTIL I FOUND OUT ABOUT DAWN OF EDEN! (Apparently this was released in 2013 and it’s just popped up in my kindle store. I feel a bit daft for not knowing about it sooner but that’s okay).
It’s not much. Just a little teaser into the world before, into a world that is only beginning to learn the brutality of the Red Lung virus. But it’s enough for me.
So I’ve loved this series. Stumbling upon it by mistake has been one of the best things and I can’t express how much I’ve enjoyed reading it. It has been a whirlwind of emotions and happenings to and really what a dystopian, apocalyptic novel needs to be. Its been great and I’m sad we’ve reached the end. And what an ending it was!
So, here we go. The Eternity Cure, the final instalment in the Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa.
So I finished The Immortal Rules in about 24 hours (which is pretty impressive for me considering I was also working 8 of those hours) and had to find out how the story continues. Honestly, my head is still reeling with how much I am enjoying this series. To think I stumbled across the series accidentally on a Facebook YA fan page!
To recap, The Immortal Rules ended with Allison leaving Zeke and his family at Eden, the last safe haven for humans, without saying goodbye to go an search for Kanin, her sire, who was kidnapped by Sarin. Zeke, the descendant of Malakai Crosse who was one of the original scientists working on the cure for Red Lung, was tasked to bring the original research for the cure to Eden which they succeed in bringing to Eden. Kanin has been taken by Sarren, a psychotic vampire used in the vampire experiments in an attempt to develop a cure, and has been torturing Kanin along their journey together.
I find myself rereading the same books over and over again, scared to start anything new in case I hate it and then revert to rereading the same books anyway to get over the disappointment of any new books I do read. It’s a very miserable way to go. Anyway, I recently heard about a series called the Blood of Eden by Julie Kagawa. I’ve heard of the author and I know of some of her works (but have never gotten around to reading any of them) but I knew nothing about this series. I called out to a group on Facebook asking for opinions of the series and the general consensus was “100% YES read these books”. So I took a chance and picked up the first book of the series on my kindle and I was not disappointed.
2018 is officially coming to a close and 2019 is about to begin. What a year it has been.
I don’t know about you guys but it’s been a pretty life-changing year for me. I got engaged in spring, found out I was pregnant in summer, lost my grandad in the fall and my lovely old pussycat got put to sleep in winter. It’s been an emotional year with both happy and sad circumstances falling on my family and I but here we are at the end of another year.
I thought I would do a bit of a wrap up of my Top 10 Books for 2018. It’s not something I’ve done before but I thought it would be nice to revisit all the great books I’ve read in the past year. This isn’t limited only to books that have come out in 2018. Continue reading “Top 10 Books for 2018”→
