The legend continues. The second epic novel in the darkly thrilling dystopian saga Blood of Eden, from the New York Times bestselling author Julie Kagawa
Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, She worked as a professional dog trainer for several years, until she stopped training to write full-time. She is the New York Times bestselling author of multiple series including: The Iron Fey, Blood of Eden, the Talon Saga and most recently the Shadow of the Fox .
Gr 9 Up-Having been kicked out of Eden, the last stronghold of free humans, teen vampire Allie makes a journey to find her creator, Kanin, who is suffering under the not-so-tender care of utterly psychotic Sarren. As she travels the bleak, dystopian landscape, she reconnects with her wise-cracking, cynical "blood brother," Jackal; her former friend turned bitter enemy, Stick; and her human love, Zeke, whom she left behind in Eden. Allie, Jackal, and Zeke all have their own reasons for wanting to find Kanin and Sarren, so they join in an uneasy alliance to search for the cure for a new and even more virulent strain of Red Lung, the disease that decimated most of humanity. There is plenty of violence and gore, and enough shifting alliances, hidden motives, and romantic angst to keep fans of the previous book, The Immortal Rules (Harlequin, 2012), satisfied. Kagawa leaves readers hanging while they wait for the next book in this intense and thought-provoking series.-Mara Alpert, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2013.
