Topping Sarren Without them there is no hope The fate of vampires and that of the surviving human rests on them If they fail the results are disastrous I just want you to understand the potential conseuences of tonight he went on If we are killed if we cannot get to Sarren in time everything could die It will be ike it was sixty years ago You aren t old enough to remember the days Before but when Red Lung was at its peak the entire world was madness and chaos And when the rabids appeared it became hell on earth Kanin makes it perfectly clear It s up to them It isa very heavy weight to carry Allison the damnation of a world I want you to be very certain before we go any further Is it worth it Is he worth it After readingNOOOO IT S OVER NOOOOOOooooWell I am sad to see this series come to an end I really enjoyed it The Forever Song is a good conclusion to the trilogy over all as thrilling action packed and emotional as the two books that preceded it There were a few things that didn t uite work for me and I m still trying to decide how I feel about the ending But over all it was worth the waitFull review coming soonBefore readingThe Forever SongTHIS IS THE SONG THAT NEVER ENDS YES IT GOES ON AND ON MY FRIENDS SOME PEOPLE STARTED SINGING IT NOT KNOWING WHAT IT WAS AND THEY LL CONTINUE SINGING IT FOREVER JUST BECAUSE THIS IS THE SONG THAT NEVER ENDS YES IT GOES ON AND ON MY FRIENDS Update 111513Oh dear The Viva Mayr Diet: 14 days to a flatter stomach and a younger you lord it doesn t come out until April 29th 2014 NOOOOAlsoUpdate 31314 OOOOH A COVER It s pretty Also it s on NetGalley Update 31614 I GOT AN ARC YAAAAAAY So yeah I will be reading this very soon Someone hold me I m scared I am proud of you Allison Sekemoto he whispered Whatever you decide whatever path you choose to take I hope that you will remain the same girl I met that night in the rain The one decision for which I have no regrets It is always difficult to start a review when you have so many feelings about a book especially in a trilogy or saga but I think at the same time or ateast in my case I can express better my opinions and so I can calm down myself a Aviation Logistics: The Dynamic Partnership of Air Freight and Supply Chain little tooolWe can see a very different Allie this time in her trip to Eden along with Kanin and Jackal after the death of Zeke she is determined to R High Performance Programming leave the feelings of the past behind of her and make way for her demon part which dominates her completely in the early chapters of history thus becoming a dangerous vampireI reallyiked this change in her although clearly the change is due to a very sad thing it has happened in her ife I think Allie had to experience it to really understand what being a vampire means and what are the real conseuences about itI think of the three books this is in my opinion that action scenes has made me feel as if the characters were in real danger constantly causing the plot catch me and I ve want to read on to discover who ives or who diesWhen you feel so attached to the plot when you don t know what is happening or will happen and even so continuous to the reading it is totally merit of the writer and in this case as I mentioned Julie Kagawa is amazing doing it Now I m sure that will not take anything in deciding to reading a new book of hers If we are talking about choice and regret what has happened cannot be undone And dwelling on the past changes nothing You will only drive yourself to insanity if you do Has Scala for Java Developers left me so happy that I feel very good about each of the characters absolutely all have grown much and Il miss everyone Jackal is so funny outgoing and always saying what he thinks although the most unexpected things The Qur'an, Morality and Critical Reason: The Essential Muhammad Shahrur lol he has no filter Iove him so much is a character without waste I think I easily I would read a whole book about him I am very pleased with how everything has ended for him I would have Vermeer to Eternity liked something else not gonnaie but it was very fine You know Jackal said kicking a rabid in the face sending it reeling it seems that whenever I m with you I m constantly fighting my way into places I really don t want to be The sewers the Prince s tower a bloody freaking church Kanin always be definitely my favorite characterThis master vampire has won my heart it is a noble being and his dispocision to help others is always worth noting I think that the plot would not have been the same without him is a character essential for that history has finished as just endview spoilerEven I can t believe what happened to Kanin I

THAT COVER A LITTLE TOO GIRLYcover a ittle too girly me Anyone else see the infinity sign the birds make HAHA GET IT FOREVER made by birds song Cool stuff The Forever Song I can t help but think Crazy Sarren thinks song scream So forever song everlasting torture But then again the title is so darn beautiful I m crying just reading it Let s start with why I So B. It love this series Everytime I read a Blood of Eden novel all I think is grey The setting is so dark and dreary and I can t understand WHY Iike something Cabaret like that Like Iove books withglamour Or at east some colour So I guess dark series is the first impressive one I ve read The characters Not sure about you but I ove all the characters even the crazy ones Stick that % It takes an impressive author to make you HATE someone so much I iked it when Allison wanted to kill him I mean it proves that she too is a flawed character Even when he died I was happy Serran crazy psychopath Again takes an awesome writer to make you hate this guy But then again it s understandable because he was tortured by humans Zeke No words for him but I really want to KNOW him I feel ike he the character with the Trading Places: The Netherlandish Merchants in Early Modern Venice least depth especially for a main character Kanin I keep on thinking of this old guy when they mention him But he s sostrong Morally You get tortured and nearly die from the Hunger but still manage to come back I thought he had a thing for Allison after he bit her He s such a nice guy Gosh I m crying Jackal best bad guy ever He s all witty and makes the smartest remarks but at the same time he knows when toet go Reminds me of Puck from the Iron Fae series Other than the fact he killed Zeke s groupies and wants vampires to rule the world I think he s a decent character Maybe it s wrong for me to think this way but I think James and Allison sounds En plein coeur like a nice pair Allison definitely flawed and that s what Iike about her She doesn t deny the monster inside of her and knows how to tame it There s something about her that makes her uniue She "s the most human of them all Great female ead YAY VAMPIRE GIRL AND PREACHER BOY The "the most human of them all Great female ead YAY VAMPIRE GIRL AND PREACHER BOY The style yay description and small font What I hope will happen Allison A Let go of Zeke Sarren S I Dance Real Slow like to hear him sing Kanin K This is between me and you Let go of the kid Jackel J Oh we re so doomed Oh Since we re doomed HAHA guys I m switching sidesagain That makes me a triple agent S Now that we re at Eden we just need to enter Uses Zeke s DNA to get in MWAHAHA Now I m going to release that virus after a destroy theirabs First I have to kill this The Art of Memoir little bird Stabs Zeke Zeke Sings A NOOO S runs off and K follows A oh Zeke Iove you Z Change me Please A butbut Z I The Day Christ Was Born: The True Account of the First 24 Hours of Jesus's Life love you so much I want to be with you Make it uick Transforms him Z Ahh feeling good already Let s go kick his bum Finds S who happens to kill K for good S gets captured and used for experiments again through the work of A and Z Somewhere halfway Jackel changes sides again At the end the two of them Jackel are cured The Forever Song Can t wait. D Sarren has one final brutal shock in store for AllieIn a ruined world where noife 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 ived in the face of surviving forever alon. So this is me all of me forever No ooking back No regrets From now on vampire girl he owered his head brushing his ips across my skin I m all yours I promise no spoilers for this book but it would be impossible to review The Forever Song without giving away some things from the previous books In my opinion this final installment is the weakest I thought the second book was a hard one to follow so maybe that fact contributed but I would have very few good things to say about this if it wasn t Jackal who is actually one of my favourite YA paranormal characters and I so hope he gets his own spin off which PostgreSQL Server Programming - Second Edition looks uiteikelySo what s up with all the angstingI ve known from the start that these books are uite dark dreary and full of drama but that s kind of what I Integrity Restored: Helping Catholic Families Win the Battle Against Pornography liked about them Iiked reading about Allison s moral struggles and how she came to terms with being a monster and The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, learned to embrace both sides of who she is Iiked reading about her relationship with Zeke and the convincing way the author depicted problems faced in a humanvampire relationship I iked Kanin And I LOVED the comic relief offered by Jackal s bitingly sarcastic sense of humour But the atter was one of only two things that remained consistent with this ast book The other being the grittiness and vivid gory detailsThe first book in this series The Immortal Rules is an introduction to the world and characters It s also slower than the other two and focuses on the changes in Allison s ife and the way she adapts to them The second book The Eternity Cure is much better It s a complex well plotted story that mixes fast paced action with humour and nail biting tension with romance It s one of those books that just ticks every box It excites it surprises it holds your attention This The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl last book isn tike that in my opinion It s 416 pages Exile and Pilgrim long and about 80% of that is about Allison and Zeke s romantic angst And maybe I wouldn t mind so much if they didn t go round and round in the same circlesThere are very few surprisesThe plot was exactly as I expected it to be in between copious amounts of vampireove drama In fact there is only one thing that happens near the end which I would consider a surprise and even that isn t particularly difficult to see coming especially when you remind yourself that something dramatic has to happen at the climax I keep saying it but without Jackal this book would have been very disappointing It s also in part an extremely ong meditation on what it means to be a monster and how to be a vampire without choosing to become evil Which is basically what the entire first book was about why did we need to cover this again It was ike de ja fucking angstThe stuff I did actually Hannah Montana: The Movie likeGritty details Kagawa seems to be really good at this This series despite the age of the characters often feelsike a set of adult books because the author isn t afraid to go there and she never skimps on the details I don t know about her Fey books but this series is very gory and bloody in horrific detail at times Which may or may not be your thing but it works well for me It also suits the dark depressing setting and general feel of the novel this is not a nice world and Kagawa isn t about to et you forget itJackal Have I mentioned that I ike him Oops But Jackal is just 100% the kind of character I ike He s witty sarcastic and yeah a bit of an asshole too I can t help it I ove multilayered characters that are neither all good or all bad And I think it s great when an author can take a character who does bad things but manages to make you ove them anyway I cannot tell you how much I would ove a spin off series featuring Jackal I would still recommend this series for fans of YA paranormal dystopiasromances These books are still very much worth reading everyone deserves a bit of Jackal in their ives but
I Think The Peaked With The Second Book Threethink the trilogy peaked with the second book Three for me a positive rating and I can t deny that even at its weakest points this series delivers enough drama action and gore to keep readers interested Blog Leafmarks Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr Oh the title is perfect sighZeke baby And Allison you gorgeous badass I ove you too much to wait I Just Can tMs Kagawa I believe you are trying to kill me but I ove you anyway because you re so crazy awesomeBut dammit I NEED THAT BOOK MISSY The ast book in this series was great It followed up on all the elements and gruesome details that enchanted me so very much in the first book The element of surprise and change that occurred in the ove relationship although foreseeable was amply believable and well portrayed I can t really complain because I did ove everything about this book and I think it ended well Kanins death was a necessary evil to heighten the drama a symbolic representation of sacrifice for the greater good It was dramatic realistic and vastly emotionalBut in general my favorite thing in books two and three was the siblings The Best Four Years: How to Survive and Thrive in College (and Life) love hate relationship The shades of gray in every person or in this case vampire made a great influence on the way youooked at the story I guess what captured me most was the touches of reality signified in this fantasy tale The only thing that prevents me from giving this book a full 5 is the extension of Zekes moping period was a ittle too ong the whining on his behalf set me off a The Time of the Hunters Moon little I mean yeah I get the whole guilt and despair but he sounded whiny than miserable to me Butike I said can t complain as I really enjoyed reading this series It made my blood boil and at the same my heart wrench for it s characters and events AFTER READING I need a hug I need Vegas Vacation (Destination: Desire, lots of hugs I can t believe it s over now The ending was beautiful and bittersweet I cannot wait to fangirl with you all Allison Zeke Jackal and Kanin You will be missed I cried so much I will reread this series every time I m sad I swear Updated 2014 April 9thess than a week before the release Who s excited I know I amThe door oomed dead ahead and I didn t stop I didn t pause to reconsider my plan Whether I was walking into a trap or straight "To My Death Katana At My Side I Strode Up "my death Katana at my side I strode up the door and kicked it below the knob It flew open with a crash nearly ripped off its hinges and I stepp SpoilersAn unremarkable end to an unremarkable series The Forever Song mostly consisted of Allison walking snarling feeling sorry for herself baring her fangs making cheesy promises of revenge and inner monologuing And the rest of the story was made up of generic fight scenes I hated Allison s character she was such a crappy heroine It pissed me off how her whole world revolved around a guy She ost all her morals and turned into a heartless cow all because she thought she ost her ove interest it was pathetic that her behaviour and ethics hinged on the fate of a boy I got tired of Allison talking about her Hunger and the Monster inside of her I think it was meant to make her seem b Rating Clarification 35 starsThis series is definitely a MUST READ These books are constant page turners gripping enthralling and exhilarating Personally I think that this third installment had too much action and no down time Part of what made me Stepdog love the first installment so much is that it had the perfect combination of both action and narrative the action is perfectly fine but the down time makes that action better gives it tension and also with the slow moments we can have time to reflect assimilate and feel In my opinion we miss profoundness with so much actionDespite the fact that is categorized young adult and the characters are.
