Waiting on Wednesday #31

wowbannerWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s Waiting on Wednesday post is for The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2) by Julie Kagawa (Harlequin Teen):

NOTE: Summary contains spoilers for the first book, The Immortal Rules.

eternitycureAllison 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.

Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.


Why I’m looking forward to this book:

That’s easy! I really liked the first one. Having never read a book by Julie Kagawa – although her Iron Fey series is on my to-read list and I hope to get to it … eventually – I wasn’t sure what to expect. Add to that the fact that I’m sort of over vampires as a whole, and I didn’t have very high expectations going in. But I was very pleasantly surprised. In Allison I found a very awesome, rather kick-ass girl who deals with her situation the best she can. The main draw for me with the second book, though, is the promise of more Kanin; I really really liked Kanin!

Release Date: April 23, 2013

  1. Hurry and read the Iron Fey series! You won’t regret it!

    Allison is one of my fav vampires because Kagawa took vampires back to some of their “roots” instead of “girling” them up. Absolutely cannot wait for to see where she takes Allie and Kanin…

    I am also so excited by this one :) I adored The Immortal Rules :D

    My WOW this week

  6. Not my kind of thing, but I’ve seen this cover around and been curious. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my WoW!

  7. Oh yes, I totally agree with our pick! I loved The immortal rules and I can’t wait to read more (and see more Kanin :D) I’m not such a fan of the cover, but that’s something I’m not worried about now. The inside is more important when it comes to Kagawa’s writing :D.

  14. I haven’t had the chance to read book one yet but I’m really looking forward to it. If I end up liking it I’ll definitely read this one when it comes out. Great pick! I hope you enjoy reading the book.

    I have heard amazing things about this series! I read The Iron King by Julie Kagawa and I really enjoyed the writing so I’m hoping to check this one out. I may wait till book one comes out in paperback though, so that my covers will match. :/
