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, triumph is short-lived in the face of surviving forever alone.
I received this galley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley and Harlequin Teen.
It's always stressful to read the last book of a series that you love. You've already invested so much time and energy with the story and it's characters. You've watched them grow and make mistakes and you honestly care about all of them. I was really scared going into this one, especially with how The Eternity Cure ended. I really had no idea how anything was going to turn out for Allison, Zeke, Kanin and Jackal. But I should have had faith in Julie Kagawa. She created the perfect ending that left this reader extremely satisfied.
What I loved so much about this series is watching Allison grow and accept who she is. She might be a vampire, and she struggles everyday with being a monster, but she also knows that she wants to be good and she wants to help people. I loved the father/daughter relationship she had with Kanin, the brother/sister relationship she had with Jackal, and I especially loved the sweet, caring relationship she had with Zeke. I really had no idea how that whole storyline was going to play out, and I was very worried. The connection these two shared was undeniable, and I loved how they helped each other deal with their vampire issues.
Julie Kagawa is truly a talented author, and one of my favorites. I will read anything this lady writes and I am so excited for her new series about dragons!
