It’s not considered a viable excuse on any occasion, and I would like to know why.
- woken you up at night the pain was so bad

I've read those books you posted about! The trilogy is actually really interesting! Have fun reading :)
setting the record straight
Oh look, the media casually blaming underaged girls for their unwilling involvement with adult men
I don’t care how evil the Darkling was. I wanted him to have a life changing moment in the third book, become somewhat good, and be with Alina. I shipped them so hard for some reason
Synopsis: 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.
My Thoughts: The second installment in the Blood of Eden trilogy picks up with Allison in search of her sire, Kannin, who was captured by a powerful vampire named Sarren. With Eden and Zeke in Allie’s past, she hurries to find her creator who is nearly dying thanks to Sarren who wants to enact revenge. Along her journey to find Kanin, Allie happens to stumble upon none other than Jackal who managed to survive the great fall he took in The Immortal Rules. Jackal is also sired to Kanin and both vampires reluctantly team together in order to find the vampire that created them. As their search progresses, they eventually learn that they both have to travel back to New Covington, Allison’s old city she never wanted to go back to.
New Covington is being ravaged by a disease called the Red Lung which slowly makes all humans go mad and rip themselves apart. Sarren released this disease into New Covington not only to kill off all the humans in the city but to take away the vampire’s food supply, also putting vampires’ eternal lives at risk. Jackal and Allison must hurry not only just to find Kanin but to try and find a cure for the Red Lung when they come across Zeke who left Eden in search of Allison. Despite Jackal and Zeke’s differences, they work together with Allison to get her sire back while also trying to survive the rapid growing disease. With a story full of twists and turns, Allison tries to save the vampires from losing their food while also trying to save the human race from bleeding out onto the streets of New Covington.
At the beginning, this story was incredibly difficult to get through considering it is a pretty large book and occasionally has too many details in certain scenes. I was really dragging along in the beginning since Zeke was my favorite character in the first book and he only appeared in this novel at around page 100. But once Jackal, Allie, and Zeke worked together to save Kanin, I was incredibly intrigued. Julie Kagawa is able to write dark and scary scenes perfectly to convey the run down world that the vampires rule. The description of the humans ripping themselves apart because of the Red Lung disease made me feel as if I was right beside Allison and her friends struggling to survive.
What really made this book for me was the actions scenes. Seeing Allison and Jackal fight vampires and humans in New Covington to get to Kanin was exciting and kept me reading to see what else could possibly happen to them. Another detail I liked in this second installment was the growing relationship between Allison and Zeke. Allie finally learns to accept that she loves a human despite the danger it comes with and is willing to protect him no matter what. So when certain situations happen to Zeke caught in the middle between vampires fighting for control, Allison nearly breaks down at the thought of losing him.
All in all, the beginning was slow, but once you trudge through it, there is action on top of action in this world where vampires rule and humans are slowly dwindling down thanks to Sarren’s Red Lung virus. The ending of this book especially shocked me. There were endless plot twists that I did not expect at all. It leaves you in a cliff hanger, waiting for more of this book to see what will happen to the citizens of New Covington along with Jackal, Zeke, and Allison who have split up at the end of the story because of the thrilling circumstances they have been through.
