Review: The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

The Eternity Cure by Julie KagawaWho are you trying to fool? People are food. … You’re not any less of a monster than I am.” -Jackal

Newly-turned vampire Allison Sekemoto must follow the call of blood, like breadcrumbs, to save her sire and mentor Kanin from Sarren, the psychotic vampire holding him captive. The trail leads Allie to her old home in New Covington and the Fringe, but there’s no time for nostalgia.

A new strain of Red Lung—the insidious virus that decimated the human population decades ago—has emerged. This time, it’s fatal to vampires, too. A cure might be among Kanin’s many secrets—if Allie reach him in time.

But when the brave, fearless human boy she left safely behind re-enters her life, Allie is torn between the remnants of her humanity and the bloodthirst that consumes her. How can two people so different feel so much for each other? One was born good. The other was reborn a monster. It’s a love as undeniable as it is impossible.

Review: The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

In less than twenty-four hours I’ll be seventeen.

Although technically, I won’t actually be turning seventeen. I’ve been in the Nevernever too long. When you’re in Faery, you don’t age. So while a year has passed in the real world, age wise I’m probably only a few days older than when I went in.

In real life, I’ve changed so much I don’t even recognise myself.

I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who’s sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into conflict so powerful, I’m not sure anyone can survive it.

This time, there will be no turning back.

BA News: Post Change, Blog Tour News, and NaNo Update

Hey lovely readers! Well, it’s safe to say it’s November and NaNoWrimo is well under way. I’m updating over at my writing blog, twitter, and my other FB page, so won’t go on about it here too much. I’ll add something a little later in this post though, first up there’s been a change to what I announced in the last BA News update.

For those keeping an eye out for my Iron Fey reviews, I’ve made it to the end of The Iron Queen, but I’ve put a hold on the rest. I’m still going to be reading The Lost Prince, but the review won’t pop up until December some time. I will be finishing the iron fey part of the series at a later date.

Another thing that’s coming up though, and was in my last update, are blog tours. I want to share which ones they are so you can see what’s going on.

Review: The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.

Worse, Meghan’s own fey powers have been cut off. She’s stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can’t help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

Spoiler Note: The Iron Daughter is the second full length story in the Iron Fey series, which means spoilers are running rampant in this review. I apologise, I couldn’t seem to avoid it in this rambly opinion of mine. I’ve also reviewed the first in the series, The Iron King, here. Continue reading

Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Meghan Chase has a secret destiny-one she could never have imagined…

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.

When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she’ll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
