This week I am waiting on...

The Forever Song
(Blood of Eden #3)
By: Julie Kagawa
Publisher:  Harlequin Teen
Release Date: April 15th, 2014

The Forever Song is probably my most anticipated book for 2014.  Julie Kagawa left us shattered, emotionally drained and incredibly eager for the next and final installment following the end of The Eternity Cure almost a year ago.  And a LONG year it has been!

The world that Julie created in the Blood of Eden trilogy...a post-apocalyptic story where vampires rule and humans are blood cattle...has been nothing short of heart-stopping and amazing so far.  Allison Sekemoto is one of my favourite heroines (next to Julie's other heroine favourite of mine, Meghan Chase).  Allie is strong and relatable.  The other characters in this story are multi-faceted...you love them and hate them at the same time.

I cannot wait to see how Julie ends this riveting story.  I'm PRAYING for a happily-ever-after for my favourite characters...but Julie has me nervous.

Now, we don't normally feature all the international covers but I felt compelled to share the Aussie cover after Nic, our fellow Lark, brought it to our attention.  Isn't it gorgeous?  Isn't Allie stunning?!  I think I have to add this edition to my collection. ===>

Synopsis from Goodreads:


Allison Sekemoto once struggled with the question: human or monster?

With the death of her love, Zeke, she has her answer.


Allie will embrace her cold vampire side to hunt down and end Sarren, the psychopathic vampire who murdered Zeke. But the trail is bloody and long, and Sarren has left many surprises for Allie and her companions—her creator, Kanin, and her blood brother, Jackal. The trail is leading straight to the one place they must protect at any cost—the last vampire-free zone on Earth, Eden. And Sarren has one final, brutal shock in store for Allie.

In a ruined world where no life 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-lived in the face of surviving forever alone.


  1. GREAT pick!! ;)

    Loooove this series and sooooooooo cannot wait to see how it all ends! Like that UK cover too! Cool how it Allie has a streak of purple in her hair, and the US cover is all purple!

    1. Ah! We`re both waiting with baited breath, Jessica!! I just finished listening to the audios of The Immortal Rules and The Eternity Cure to put me back in this world before the arc comes out (hopefully soon)!

      This Aussie cover is STUNNING! I love the colours...especially that streak in her hair...but up until now, I had a hard time picturing Allie. But I think this cover model is PERFECT!! She`s my Allie!

      We`ll have to talk once we both read it!

  2. I only read up to half of the first book because I was in a reading slump at the time but wow I really need to finish the rest and move on to book two. The covers to the third are absolutely gorgeous.
