Omgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomg OH My FREAKING G-D! I can't say how long I've been waiting for this. I wonder why nobody else posted yet. Oh well, that just means I get to be the first to say, I am so exited. I heard this was the name of the last book awhile ago, and read the summery on goodbook or whatever its called, but the end of the eternity cure SPOILER ALERT! Don't keep reading unless you finished the eternity cure! When zeke died, some people I chated with and I thought of something; exibit A : sarren tells zeke "I shall now release you from this mortal coil" it can be taken the way the saying usually is, death in the common sense of the word. Exibit B: it mentions zeke stopping his breaths and his heart stops for the last time. Exibit C: sarren talks to him in the end of the book. Exibit D: the end would suck( no bloody vampire pun intended) without zeke. Finally, exibit E: it mentions zeke gurgaling, choking on his blood... but what if it isn't his own blood? Alison was choking on kanin's blood in the immortal rules. What if it wasn't human blood at all? What if it was SARREN'S blood he was choking on? This all leads me to believe one thing which you probably caught onto by now; I think zeke was Turned into a vampire. Omigod I can't wait for april 15....

Absolutely brilliant! I adored this series so I had high hopes for the conclusion and it definitely didn't disappoint. It was epic! With secrets, surprises, thrills, and romance, The Forever Song was just amazing. From beginning to end, I was hooked and I loved every bit of it. Perfection! I absolutely adore the world that Julie created for this book. It was dark and desolate but had hints of hope that people refused to let go. I loved how she portrayed vampires. They were dangerous and bloodthirsty and it was inevitable that every vampire would eventually lose control. But, each vampire could choose which type of vampire they wanted to be in the meantime. Allie truly proved herself as a strong, clever, and determined heroine in this book. We already knew she was a badass, even downright formidable if you pissed her off, and she proved it even more. What can I say about her? She was awesome. I absolutely loved her in the previous books, and, by the end of this book, I liked her even more. After how we left Zeke at the end of book 2, I was anxious for him. There were plenty of surprises in store with this poor guy. But, even with the effects of what Sarren did to him, Zeke was still the adorable guy we all love. He was strong and determined to keep his loved ones safe. He broke my heart, made me swoon, and I adored every bit of him. The romance was wonderful. Allie and Zeke were just so perfect together. I don't want to say to much, because I'm sure I'll end up giving something away, but they were a badass, absolutely wonderful couple. Kanin and Jackel were both brilliant. I already liked Kanin and he earned my respect as a character in this book. He was determined to make his mistake right, no matter what it cost. Jackel, the adorable bastard that he is, was amazing. He's a horrible person, but it's impossible not to love him. He came with a few surprises as well. There was more to him than he cared to show and we finally see hints of that in this book. Both of these characters were wonderful. The plot was fast paced and I was utterly hooked the entire way through. There were thrills, secrets, surprises, and, of course, it can't be a Julie Kagawa book without heartbreak and a heartwrenching death. Who will it be? I won't say. You'll have to find out for yourself :) I loved the story and the ending was a perfect conclusion to a brilliant series. I love Julie's books and I can't wait to read more from her. The Forever Song was absolutely magnificent! I loved this book so much! It was a perfect ending to a fantastic series. With thrills, secrets, surprises, and romance at every turn, this book doesn't disappoint. Fans of the series, you will love this final installment. And, YA lovers, this is definitely a must read series. *I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

I literally read this book in one sitting; it was just too good to put down! Allie has finally given into the monster. Kanin expresses his disapointment over this but excepts it, and it makes Jackal quite gleeful. They start by just tracking Sarren, but with some interesting twists the plot gets much more complicated. There are many conflicts in this book, as well as the series. There's Allie's internal conflict of whether or not to give to the "monster." Then there are conflicts between characters, not only the good guys vs Sarran, but there's so hilarious squabling between Allie and Jackal as well. I'll try not to give anything away, but let's just say Zeke isn't completely cut out of the story after what happened in Eternity Cure. There's still plenty of romance! Forever Song was such a page turner, there was some predictablility but other parts I never saw coming! All my questions were answered, and the end was wrapped up quite nicely. Now, buy this book if you haven't already!! (but be sure to read the rest of the series first!)

I've really enjoyed this series by Julie Kagawa. When I first read The Immortal Rules, I loved how unique the premise was. A dystopian world controlled by vampires? Heck yeah! It was cool to see a world where humans were inferior to vampires and were forced to live and obey by THEIR rules. We have watched Allie transform in front of our very eyes from a girl living on the edge of society to a really kickass vampire who is determined to fight the monster within and not let it strip her of her humanity. The events from the end of The Eternity Cure really set quite a bit in motion for Allie and she'll have to figure out how far she'll go to seek revenge or if she'll lose herself in the process.... Pacing: Part One was really slow going for me. I had trouble concentrating, as there just wasn't much going on. After that I found I had no trouble reading the book, even with its predictability. Storyline: I obviously won't reveal too much here, as this is the final book in the series. Allie is really struggling with her identity, as the events at the end of The Eternity Cure have really changed everything for her. Watching her lose sight of everything she has worked to gain and what Kanin has taught her was really hard, as she fought so hard to not succumb to the monster within. I felt a lot of things that occurred in this final book were pretty predictable and I won't lie. I was relieved at some of that predictability because otherwise I would've been a hot mess over this book. Kagawa did still deliver a few heart-stopping moments that really made me cringe in fear of what direction she would go. I do feel Kagawa did a good job of wrapping up her series and tied up all loose ends and questions I may have previously had. Characters: As I said, we see a very different Allie at the start of this book. It's a bit hard to swallow considering how much time Kanin and Zeke spent guiding and teaching her. She is really a shell of who she used to be and is determined to end Sarren and make him pay. Kanin is still as stoic as ever. He has such a powerful, quiet presence. He is disappointed that Allie is choosing to give in to the monster and not fight it. But when you have nothing left to fight for.... I've always liked Kanin's character, even though he is harder to read. He feels so much guilt and shame for the past and it's something that weighs heavily on him everyday. He does not want to see Sarren succeed in ridding the world of the human race and so he will push forward to make things right. Jackal is also back in this book and I have to say, I really love his character. He's a lot of fun and really does a great job of providing comedic relief. His back and forth jabs at Allie are great and had me chuckling. Jackal has not proven to be the most trustworthy of allies, and we still spend a lot of time wondering what his ulterior motives are and whether or not he will betray his kin at the last moment. There are other characters that I can't really discuss without spoilers, so I won't, but I will say at 70% I had a huge grin on my face and all felt right in the world, considering the odds of survival were NOT in their favor. Final Thoughts: I think fans of this series will be quite satisfied with the way it ended, and I felt the events that transpired HAD to happen and I had a feeling they were coming, as much as I didn't want them to. I really like that Kagawa did not hold back either. The world is a barren, ravaged wasteland where rabids are running rampant and it really is all about survival. There are some pretty gruesome, grotesque parts and I really commend her for staying true to the darker nature of this novel.

4.5 stars This was great. I was kinda iffy in the beginning but when they were making their way to Eden, I became more involved. They came across many interesting and horrible things. There were some grisly descriptions of messages that were left for the group. For a while I was full of dread and anticipation when Allie would finally come across the one she didn't ever expect to see again. I think the author wanted to crush my soul when that moment finally did come. It was such a good but heartbreaking moment. But it got better. ;) The characters are great as always. Jackal's and Allie's bickering was hilarious. It sounds just like my siblings and I. Poor Kanin, I think he was ready to turn the car around or rip their heads off if they didn't stop. Lol. There were a lot of fighting with their badass skills. Which of course because of that, there were some close calls with death and there was also some losses. It was such a good way to end the series. I was getting nervous for a little bit when the page numbers started to go down and things weren't going as they planned. But never fear all ended as it should.

Perfect end to an awesome series! I received a copy of this book free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion. I've never tried to hide the fact that I think Julie Kagawa is a god, or goddess in this case, and she didn't disappoint me with the end of this trilogy! All of the loose ends were tied up beautifully and the characters remained true to themselves to the end. Jackal was at his snarkiest, Kanin was his usual stoic self, and Allie was as confused as she ever is, although more so after she lost her beloved Zeke. When she realized that remaining human would mean being in pain constantly, and rethinking her choices that led to his demise over and over and over again, she decides to take a page out of Jackal's book - she in essence turned off her humanity and embraced her evil side, much to Kanin's chagrin. But Kanin being Kanin, he didn't exactly call her out on her wicked behavior, he just acted "disappointed" in her, and who among us can say that when someone we look up to more than anyone else in the world, and whose values we strive to meet ourselves, gives us the "disappointed" look, we wouldn't feel the same. Although in Allie's case, acting out means killing vamps willy-nilly and not caring at all what havoc she wreaks as a result! Eventually Allie does see the error of her ways when she feels like she is becoming what Zeke hated most in vamps, so she decides to go after Sarren to get the cure for the disease that is killing both humans and vampires alike. She also vows to finally take Sarren out for killing Zeke, as she hopes that that will finally allow her some closure. But along the way she is in for some huge surprises, and yes my little opinionators, you will have to read the book to find out what those surprises are, and what they mean for Allie personally. I will tell you that they are total game changers for everyone on the canvas. As usual, I can find no fault with Ms. Kagawa's writing. The pacing is perfect and the characters continue to grow and change from beginning to end. The amazing world they live in is written so that you feel you are there with them, which means it's very easy to escape your daily troubles and get totally immersed in the story.  In summary, I loved this book and thought it was a fitting end to an awesome series. I highly recommend it to all lovers of YA paranormal books about vampires. I give it a very enthusiastic 5 stars :D

I can't tell you how amazing these books are! They leave me breathless! I've waited SO long for 'The Forever Song' to come out, and now that I finally got my wish... I couldn't be more happy!  **SPOILER ALERT**SPOILER ALERT** This book picks up right where The Eternity Cure left off! Right where Zeke dies, and Kanin, Jackle, and Allie start on their treacherous journey to find Sarren. I was flipping pages like CRAZY when I found out that Zeke had been turned! To be honest, I thought that maybe he WASN'T dead. But in the back of my mind, I knew Sarren was a sick bastard and would do anything to hurt Allie. This book will keep you at the edge of your seat, I swear!

OMG, where do I even begin to say how much I adored this book! Well adored is probably the wrong word, because you adore a little bunny or a cute dog, and your kids, maybe? ;) But there was NOTHING adorable about this book! Nope, their was SO MUCH BLOOD!! And MORE BLOOD, then MORE!! I LOVED IT!! I don't really know what that says about me, but hey, I have to keep it real, right??? ;) Julie Kagawa has done it again in THE FOREVER SONG!! It's just a little depressing now that it's over!! I could read millions of books in this series and never get tired of THE BLOOD OF EDEN!! And Jackal, where do I begin to say how much I love him!! Really, he always steals the show for me in THE BLOOD OF EDEN Series!! Now, don't get me wrong, I love Allie and Kanin and even Zeke, I do, I really do! But Jackal is the fire that ignites the flame in this book! He is sooo hilarious, but so seriously honest at the same time!! He had me cracking up through most of this book, well really through all the books! I am just sad to see him go, I would love for Julie to do a spin-off series with Jackal!! I would read them all, then read them again! THE PLOT... Allie, the unregistered human Fringer, has had her world ripped out from under her since vampires have taken control of their cities and use humans as blood cattle, and control them as they see fit, since they are the superior race! Allie has always hated vampires with every ounce of her soul, that is until the day she loses her soul to the very thing she despised, a vampire! Now a newly turned vampire, the very thing she's always hated, Allison has learned to adjust to the harsh life of being a vampire, with the intense thirst for human blood and a demon that lurks deep inside just waiting to rip through and unleash hell on earth! But she has slowly learned to hold on to her humanity at the same time, thanks to Zeke, the one boy who always told her she wasn't evil, that she wasn't the demon she thought herself to be. But when Zeke, the very thing that kept her attached to her humanity is murdered by the insane vampire Sarren, all her humanity goes out the window in order to find the crazed vampire and end him for the pain and suffering he has caused her and the rest of the world!! And she vowels to end it, one way or another!! With Sarren on the lose and on his way to Eden, the only Vampire-free zone left, and set on destroying the world with his concocted virus, that turns vampires and humans alike into crazed monsters, and eventually will spread like wildfire and bring the ends of time! But Allison, Jackal, and their Sire Kanin, are hot on his trail, trekking through the vicious rabid-filled wasteland, stumbling through many of Sarren's traps, and detours with some very interesting surprises that will shock them to the very core! And no matter what they do and how far they get, Sarren is always one step ahead of them. But that won't stop Allison and her group, they are ready to fight their way through hell and back to save the world an exact revenge on the brilliantly insane vampire, Sarrne! Will Allie and her group be able to get through Sarrens traps and make it to Eden in time? Will they be able to keep the virus if from leaving Eden if Sarrne has set it loose? But most off all, will they be able to stop the madman before it's to late?? Believe me these are answers your going to want, even if you haven't read this series yet, PLEASE PICK IT UP!!! Julie Kagawa has brought this explosive conclusion that has left me breathless and craving more, then defuse it, and left me utterly satisfied, and fully complete! I will read anything Julie Kagawa writes, and I can't wait to read her newest creation Talon, releasing October 2014. I know it's sure to leave the same feeling! Overall, THE BLOOD OF EDEN Series will go down as one of my favorite series of all times! And Allie, Zeke, Kanin, and especially Jackal, will live in my heart for years to come!! Thank you Julie Kagawa for creating such a brilliantly, Vicious, heart-pounding, memorable adventure in the BLOOD OF EDEN Series! :) I received an eARC copy for reviewing purposes! All opinions express are my own, and are not influenced in any way!

There are simply no words for the love i have for this series.  The Forever Song was a conclusion that wrapped everything up so beautifully i found myself crying as a re-read scenes to the point of memorization. The Iron Fey was once my favorite series of all time, but the Blood of Eden now takes the cake.  Julie is a wonderful, wonderful writer whose use of foreshadowing and flashbacks allow you to smile through the tears as you discover them. I won't go through my thoughts on the characters, this is a book i really recommend reading and discovering what you think yourself . And coming from a girl who USUALLY reads the ending of a book/series before she begins, that says a lot.

Tansytail howled in pain, a set of badger fangs colliding with her hindleg. She cringed as the bone shattered, agony beginning to lance through the nerves. <p> She clawed furiously at the beast's muzzle, feeling a hint of satisfaction as her claws scored through its thin fur, making blood well from the marks. <p> Behind her, the pitiful sounds of her newborns kits wailing made her heat clench with fear. -Where was Goldenclaw?!- <p> Her mate was supposed to meet her. He'd known she was close to kitting, but with the camp recently ravaged by fire, it was unsafe for her, so he'd told her to wait here for his return. <p> She felt her paw curl around a slimy object and watched in horror as her claws plucked the badger's beady eye from its socket, leaving only a dark hole oozing fluids. She yowled weakly in disgust and tossed the thing away, arcs of blood flashig from her claws, the tips long broken from scrabbling at the rocky floor of the cave. <p> Suddenly, the badger's great lumbering paw made a shadow on her face; it crashed down on her skull with surprising speed. There was a flash of red hot pain as she fell to the ground, hearing nothing; then she last saw Goldenclaw and a patrol of warrior leap onto the badger from the bushes before her spirit slipped unwillingly up to StarClan. <p> [ Not gonna be your typical Warriors fanfic. >:3 ~ NRM ]
