KIRKUS REVIEW

Seventeen-year-old Allie Sekemoto is back with a vengeance in the second installment of Kagawa’s (The Immortal Rules, 2012) Blood of Eden series.

Banished from Eden and separated from her first and only love, Allie finds herself on a dangerous quest to rescue her sire, Kanin, from unspeakable (even by vampire standards) torture. Bonded by blood, Kanin calls to her through agonizing visions and leads Allie on a treacherous journey that will bring her face to face with her human past and with an evil so great it threatens the futures of humans and vampires alike. The stakes are high, and the journey is an incredibly personal one for Allie, which adds deliciously complicated layers to an already compelling plot. Allie again proves herself a force to be reckoned with as she fights to protect the ones she loves and to save both mankind and monster. Readers will also appreciate glimpses of her vulnerable side when it comes to matters of the heart and her desire to cling to the basic tenets of humanity despite the Hunger within.

With its Tarantino-esque level of violence and gore, this novel is not for the faint of heart. But those who can stomach it will be counting the days to find out what happens next. (Paranormal romance. 14 & up)
