YA Paranormal Dystopian
Expected Publication: April 30th 2013
Allison 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.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley for an honest review.
MY OVERVIEW: OMG! OMG! OMG! Julie Kagawa, you never disappoint. The range of emotions she pulls from the reader is fantastic. I started crying when I read the first sentence of Chapter 19. Then, later at the end, I just became numb.
PROS: As in the last book, Allie is great. She is constantly at war with her inner demons and it is written so beautifully. Of course... you can't forget about Zeke. He is the perfect guy, but does still have his faults.
CONS: The last line of the book was sooo not a surprise. You really did see it coming. I didn't like the route Stick's character took. It just didn't seem quite right for him. Also, some of the timeline seemed a little messed up. It seemed like the author couldn't decide how long it took to get different places in New Covington.
MY FINAL THOUGHTS: Next book please... Wait, it isn't even announced??? How long do I have to wait?!?!?!?!? Arg!!!!!
